Summer Contest

Welcome to our "92 Days of Summer" Contest!
Everyone is welcome to participate, but please read this guide before joining in.
Contest Details
When: June 1st to August 31st, 2009 (92 Days)
Submission Deadline: September 30th, 2009 Submission
Location: 92 Days of Summer Contest Gallery (Click HERE)
How to Participate At the beginning of each week (Monday) we will post an inspiration thread (HERE) with some tips, tricks and a YMBD original sketch. You will be required to take one photo a day each week (7 photos/week). You may choose to use some of the tips and tricks we've suggested and the sketch, or not (that is up to you). Either way, you must take one photo a day each week, and create a layout with your 7 photos (this will result in 92 photos over the summer and 13 layouts). You must upload your layouts to our "92 Days of Summer" Gallery, located HERE (Deadline for submissions: September 30th, 2009). You must keep track of your progress HERE, and keep your tracking post up to date.
Prizes
All prizes will be awarded via random ballot drawing.
Grand Prize: In order to be elligible for our Grand Prize drawing, you must complete and upload all 13 Layouts (with 92 photos) by the deadline.
1st, 2nd & 3rd Prizes: In order to be elligible for our 1st, 2nd & 3rd Prize drawings, you must complete and upload all 13 Layouts (with 92 photos) by the deadline.
Other Prizes: We will have oodles of other fantastic prizes available to those who were not able to get all 13 layouts completed. These participants will earn 1 ballot for each layout they did complete and upload to the gallery. All ballots will be entered into a drawing for one of our other yummy prizes! So the more layouts you complete, the more ballots you will earn, and the better chance you will have at winning something (statistically speaking).
Prize Drawings: All winners will be drawn & announced the week of October 5th, 2009.
BONUS -- Early Bird Prizes: We will have a few "Early Bird" prizes that will be drawn throughout the contest period (June 1 - Aug 31). The details of the prizes (and requirements to get in on the early bird draws) will be posted one week prior to the deadline for each particular draw.
The Prizes: See our prize thread HERE to see what you are playing for! Please note that our prize thread is not yet complete and will be continually updated throughout the contest as more sponsored prizes arrive in the mail to the YMBD Studio!

What a really cool and challenging contest! Stop over at YMBD and check it out!
