The Best Photographs win iPads in three Lenzr photo contests that end Oct 1st 2010
Lenzr appeals to web savvy shutterbugs of all ages and skill levels who know they can upload very specific images into friendly competitions in exchange for real prizes; three Apple iPads are being dispensed this month in separate but equally exciting challenges that end Oct 1st 2010. These contests are populated with user submitted photos. The members also vote, and by selecting their favourites, they pick the winners.
The View From The Roof photo contest is taking in all sorts of slightly elevated cityscapes and wonderful landscapes from all across Canada. There are strange and slightly elevated views from the roofs of buildings and farm silos alongside business flat roofs in downtown Toronto. Images from all across the nation are collecting in the contest queue; shots from Ontario are viewed beside submissions from British Columbia and Canada’s Maritime Provinces. There are even some colourful cityscapes that were lensed half a world away…
The contest is sponsored by an industrial roof repair service that installs a white extremely durable ToughRoof system in the greater Toronto Area. Dan Sheridan is a flat roof repair specialist and there’s a lot more information about his company, All Weather Roofing on the Lenzr blog and there’s even a picture of Dan Sheridan on a thread published about View from the Roof photo contest on Toronto Forums.
The Morning Sunshine photo contest requires getting up really early and taking pictures at the crack of dawn. Its a magic hour thing and in the morning is when the magic happens. Submit shots of the purple sky and yellow moon above the pink granite at the Havelock Bluegrass Festival. Now do you feel it? Morning is a special time and the first rays of sunlight have travelled farther than all others and they’ve often been bent out of shape and into a warm glow by the heavy atmosphere of a misty morning in late summer. Look at Michael Reichmann’s image on the left. He generously donated his shot of a ‘Barn At Sunrise’ which perfectly illustrates the contest theme.
The contest is made possible by the generous donation of an Apple iPad from a portable solar power generator (PSG’s) assembly firm in Ontario. These guys custom design and manufacture trailers that have solar panels on the top and all the tools and equipment your business needs inside – wherever possible they hope to replace gas and diesel generators in favour of battery powered and solar recharged inside their ‘Mobile Solar Work Units’ which are very cool. This company makes Canada look good, and green. Although they’re located here in southern Ontario, they’ll ship product anywhere in the world.
The Solarline Mobile Solar Work Units are clever and clean and efficient. Most importantly, they deliver clean renewable energy. With one solar panel hinged on top you can charge batteries to power a wide array of tools and equipment.
People Building Things photo contest is easy to enter and win. Although the topic does require pictures of humans and they must be building something, anything showing any form of construction with any size people will no doubt be accepted in the match.
This iPad prize was provided by a solar powered deck building company that uses a custom built Solarline Power work unit which is also their equipment trailer. The firm was founded by a few forward thinking craftsmen that intend to make a market for sustainable business and tehir vision of the future includes green construction sites as part of a planet saving solution. Matt and company build backyard fences, gazebos, and wooden decks of all shapes and sizes using the energy they collect from the sun. There’s more information about EcoDeckBuilder on the Lenzr blog.
