It hasn't been decided what the theme will be, but I just wanted to get the word out to see how many members would be interested in participating in our first contest? Any member can enter the contest, but you don't have to enter to be able to cast your votes for your favorite entries. I'm thinking that everyone will pick their first, second and third favorite and whichever picture garners the most votes will be the winner. The winning photograph will be featured on the home page for the Vivitar Mini Digital group.

Please post here if you'd be interested in participating in the contest or even if you'd just like to help decide the winner. Someday, the world may look back at these little cameras like the art world did with the plastic Diana cameras back in the 1970's. There were even legitimate art books devoted to Diana photographs. Let's show the world what we can do with these little wonders!

The official rules will be announced later, but some of the preliminary rules will most certainly be:

1. All entries must have been taken with a Vivitar Mini Digital or Vivitar-clone.
2. All entries must be posted to the group pool.
3. Contest submissions will also be posted to a special contest thread in this forum once the contest has begun.

All the rules will be posted in the contest thread when the contest is announced. Start limbering up your shutter fingers!

Great Melanie! Be sure to keep checking back for further news about the contest. I hope several other members and even maybe new members will want to be a part of this first contest.

Yes, we're still waiting on more to show interest and finalize some plans, but it's definitely still in the making! If you have any suggestions for a theme, by all means, let us know. We're looking for something interesting to get things kicked off with.

Well, we've decided on a theme and our first contest is about ready to begin! It will officially start on October 15th and run through October 31st. The theme is going to be "Autumn." Anything to do with Autumn or fall, such as turning leaves, pumpkins and hay stalks, well.... you get the idea. Be sure to watch for a new thread detailing the rules and further information to be started in the next day or so. Be sure to tell all your friends who own a Vivitar Mini Digital or any of it's clones - we want as many people as we can get to participate in our first contest and make it a real fun one for everybody.

Hooray! Just got a clone Mini Digital from ebay for £3.49 and can't wait to try it out and enter the competition. It is autumn here in Wales so glad I don't live in the Southern Hemisphere :-)
