Announcing the 2014 spintop photo contest
« on: April 08, 2014, 09:43:02 AM »

GO HERE TO VOTE RIGHT NOW!!! : www.ta0.com/forum/index.php/topic,3685.msg37700.html#msg37700

==================

EDIT by admin:

After the success of the 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 photo contests we will have another one this year. The prizes will be determined at a later day. But the main award is bragging rights and sharing a great photo. To be eligible, the photo needs to be somehow spintop related, taken in 2014, and either taken by a member of the board or featuring a member of the board. If the photographer is not a member the prize goes to the player in the photograph. Otherwise it goes to the photographer. The winner will be selected by a poll on the board. Deadline is December 31, 2014, 23:59:59 GMT-11.

That's it as far as rules. We recommend that those proposing a picture also give them a name/title/caption. This administrator reserves the right to give it a name or caption if none is given  ;D

Previous winners were:

2010: Kevinm (yocephus) with Leggy Corkscrew
2011: Takeshi with Takeshi's World
2012: Neff with Top Face
2013: Hrosik with Dizzy Giraffe

The first pictures entered for the contest are:

Has a 2014 photo contest thread been started yet? I couldn't find it if it has.

Mark Hayward's "Cool Guy" reminds me of a Pete Townshend "Windmill"!  Please don't start destroying your tops at the end of you shows!  :-[

That's great!

What's the rest of the story here? Is that Charlie's top? When was this taken?

Actually the photo is by Rachel of Kirk.  She is also a forum member (lurker) but if she wins I think she will share the lucrative prize purse  :)

Charlie Brown is the name of the top made by JohnM. See the stripe. Weighing about 7 pounds, catching it is a significant success.

I was confused because I mistook Kirk for a juggler I know who's name is actually Charlie Brown. I thought the top was selected for that reason. Now it all makes sense. Great photo!
