Yes, it's that time of year again, when our minds turn towards giving-and more importantly-receiving.
So, as a "gift" to all Facepunch photographers, here is the Facepunch Winter Photo Contest.
Compete against your fellow Facepunchers, and win hipsterrific prizes, and forever have your name remembered in the photograph sub-form.
[sub]The most important part![/sub]
Of course the most important aspect of this contest is to try and get competitors to create unique and creative photos, and of course to have fun in doing so,
but prizes never hurt do they?

That's everything you should need, if it's not just ask.
Have fun shooting!
Sign me up for this, please. Sounds like it'll be pretty damn fun.
However, I shoot with film. Don't know if you can milk any exif data out of the roll. <_<
Yay! Something to get me to start shooting!
Sign me up please!
I'll tell you if I am signing up or not once it actually freakin snows in the GTA... Stupid Toronto. Why won't you snow...
Ok so I have a question. I'm going to be in Brazil, but it's summer down there, essentially disqualifying me from this. Any way beach pictures can count if you are in the southern hemisphere?
Alternatively I could just focus on the christmas aspect. Yeah I'll do that instead. Also, this means count me in.
I was looking forward to a photography contest, sign me up.
