Buyers’ Guide Countdown Contest: Win a new iPod! - Winners Announced

image

Winners have been announced in the 2007 iPod Buyers’ Guide

The theme - iPod Colors - is simple. Apple has released the new iPod nano in six* colors - red, silver, pink, green, blue, and black. And of course, standard full-sized iPods come in white or black. Take a picture of any iPod - old or new - against an interesting background that emphasizes one of those colors. For example, you can have a white iPod on a pink background, a pink iPod on a silver background, or a black iPod on a black background - as long as the background is silver, red, pink, green, blue, black, or white, you’re set.

We will pick three total winners - two iLounge editor favorites, and one at random from all entries that have been voted upon by 5 or more users by October 31, 2006.

View the iPod Colors Contest Gallery.

Prizes:

Grand Prize - One Grand Prize winner will receive

    A brand-new Enhanced Fifth-Generation iPod (with video) in black.

Second Place - One Second Place winner will receive

    A brand-new 8GB Second-Generation iPod nano (aluminum) in black.

Third Place - One Third Place winner will receive

    A brand-new 4GB Second-Generation iPod nano (aluminum) in the winner’s choice of silver, blue, green, or pink colors.

Submit your picture(s) to our iPod Colors Contest Gallery - minimum size 640x480 pixels.

‘emphasizes one of those colors.’  I think not.  I’ll just take a load of random ones over the next couple of days and pick the best.

Look forward to seeing everybody’s pictures!

Sprint: Cropping is always allowed.

Topher: It can, but one color (from the list above) needs to be emphasized in the photo. People who don’t follow that rule will lose.

You can send higher-resolution versions of your pictures to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Just make sure you send the lower-res one to our gallery, with 150k file size. Blurring the serial is OK.

Please note: we are adding red as a background color based on Apple’s introduction of the new (PRODUCT) RED Special Edition iPod nano.

So do you send the high res photos to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)?
