3. You must be a member of the Magic of Oz Flickr Group.

4. Entrants are limited to a maximum of two entries. Only one picture from any one resident can win a place (i.e. 1st or 2nd prize).

5. By entering this competition you agree to your pictures being used in future by the owners of the Magic of Oz sim for any promotional purposes and to the picture/s being on display in world after the competition.

6. Pictures must be uploaded to the Magic of Oz Flickr Group and contain the following information: your complete name (Second Life name that is), the product or products belonging to Oz merchants in the picture, and the part of the sim you took the picture at.

7. Entries uploaded after Midnight SLT time on the 18th of October, 2009 will not be entered in the contest.

*** There are TWO categories, but you may enter only one of them, so choose carefully:

**Category 1: Photographic.

This category is for those who do not wish to or do not use image editing software such as Photoshop, Gimp or Paintshop etc. This category is there for those who rely solely on in world lighting, set, costume, shot perspective etc.

You may however crop your picture but that is the extent of any photo manipulation. Those entering this category who are found to have not kept by these simple and clear guide lines will be disqualified.

Photographic Category Prizes:
1st Prize: Ozimals breeder pack
2nd Prize: Dorothy Dress from Katat0nik

** Category 2: Post Processing.

This category is for those who wish to use such image editing software as Gimp, Photoshop or Paintshop etc. Basically the rules here are "if we can still make out that you are at Oz and have a product from an Oz merchant, you're good to go." Although of course, less can be more.

Post Processing Category Prizes:
1st Prize: Ozimals breeder pack
2nd Prize: Dorothy Dress from Katat0nik

**** Winners will be notified.

Please notecard Elizabeth Tinsley with any questions. Have fun and enjoy the Magic of Oz! :)
