Club Chaos Spring Eye Candy Contest: LANDMARKS (Sat April 25 - Sat May 2, 2009)

 

This is our third Club Chaos Eye Candy event where we run parallel but dueling contests: ONE for PHOTOGRAPHY (APR-ECP04) and ONE for VIDEO (APR-ECV04). As previously stated, we are looking for your very best eye candy ladies and gentlemen and we want you to submit quality work worthy of a featured post.

Club Chaos will be hosting this Active Rain Contest with a little help from our friends, so please pay attention to what is mandatory and what is optional. As requested, we rotated some of the groups and have introduced Fraishe Aire and PAWS into the mix.

Each member has a choice of entering one or both contests. 200 points awarded per contest entry. If the work submitted is selected for placement, the 200 entry points will be rolled into the winning point spread. Contestants may only post one link for each selected media a candidate decides to work in (e.g. you can not posts two entries for photography or two for video, but you can post an AR Blog link for one contest category each.)

The panel consists of 5 judges: Debe Maxwell (NC), Melody Botting (TX), Amanda Hall (TX), Cindy Tsui (NY) and Carolyn Tann-Starr (NY).

Members choosing to participate must design and publish their original content specifically for Localism.com. "Members Only" posts are prohibited from entry. All entries must be PG-13 Rated.

Active Rain Channel: "Club Chaos Eye Candy" has been created for your entries.

CONTEST RULES:

Section 1. [A] Participants must join the Active Rain group "LOCAL HISTORY." [B] All contest banter must remain PG-13. Do not post inappropriate photographs in the comment sections. [C] We will only accept Localism.com blog links.

Section 2. [A] Participants must post contest submission(s) in the group "LOCAL HISTORY" and two of the following 5 other groups: (1) Fraiche Aire (public); (2) Diary of a Realtor (public); (3) Whacked (public); (4) Positive Attitude For The Weary Soul (public) and (5) Club Chaos (by invitation only: current members). You must post your contest submission links in the comment section of this official contest post in order for your post(s) to be judged and added to the blog post roll.

Section 3. You must post your contest submission(s) in Localism.com for failing to do so disqualifies you. This is a very important point so I will say it again: FAILING TO DO SO DISQUALIFIES YOU... The contest judges are prohibited from entering as panel members but may participate in other events they are not actively judging, including future CC Eye Candy contests.

Note: 1. Every entry must be original content created by the participant.

2. Submissions must be titled "Club Chaos Eye Candy" and tagged to separate the contest entries. Meta Tags: Club Chaos Eye Candy APRECP04 (Photography Eye Candy) Club Chaos Eye Candy APRECV04 (Video Eye Candy).

3. Failing to use the appropriate Meta Tags to identify your contest submissions will result in your contest points not being awarded. Failing to publish the appropriate AR-Localism links in the comment section of this OFFICIAL CONTEST post will result in your creation not being reviewed and no points will be awarded.

4. Minimum Post Requirements: 150 words and 5 Photographs and/or 150 words/narrative and one 1.5 minute video. (It would be nice if you would act like you were writing for a feature, but 150 words will do. It isn't the quantity, it's the quality!)

5. Do not combine two entries on one post. Do not exceed 5 minutes with your video submission. Do not include music unless (a) you own the copyright or (b) have written permission from the rights owner to use their music (I will spot check if you do). Do not include any television or radio transmissions or visuals in the background of your videos. Do not trespass on any property to complete your project.

2000 points for 1st Place in Photography, 2000 points for 1st Place in Video.

1500 points for 2ndPlace in Photography, 1500 points for 2nd Place in Video.

1000 points for 3rd Place in Photography, 1000 points for 3rd Place in Video.

500 points for 4th Place in Photography, 500 points for 4th Place in Video.

Each contest entry: 200 points. WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON 05/05/2009

Sat May 2nd UPDATE: LOCALSIM.com went down Saturday night and I have received several e-mails that candidates can't post their links or their work is missing (e.g. error page about the page being moved). We're extending the contest date to Midnight Sunday, May 3, 2009. We do not penalize people for technical difficulties and will not entertain a single complaint regarding this extension. If you post the Localism.com contest link by midnight tomorrow (AR clock controlling) the contest entry will be accepted.

Now this is a contest I can wrap myself around!  I LOVE that Eye Candy!  Looks like I best get my digital camera and flip video all charged up and ready to go! 

Posted by Donna Bigda, Greater New Haven CT Real Estate (RE/MAX Alliance) over 9 years ago

Looks very interesting CTS.  I am with Donna above & going to get my video cam & camera ready for this one.  I might put it on my list for today! 

Posted by Kristin Moran, San Antonio,TX - Real Estate - 210-313-7397 (Owner - RE/MAX Access - KristinMoran@Remax.net) over 9 years ago

Donna, I can't wait to see what you guys cook up for me. :-)

Kristin, put it on your list! My girl! BTW, kudos and congrats on your wedding, sweetie. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 9 years ago

I'm on it.

(I'll make Sweet Potatoe Sal go back to the 'spargus patch for this one. She'll be too busy, to jack my entry.)

Posted by Sally Dunbar, Fair Oaks Realtor - Fair Oaks Homes for Sale (Lyon Real Estate, Fair Oaks CA (Sacramento Area)) over 9 years ago

Carolyn, I've got an idea for this one... a favorite place of mine too;-)

Posted by Barb Szabo, CRS, E-pro Realtor, Cleveland Ohio Homes (RE/MAX Trinity Brecksville Ohio) over 9 years ago

Hey there Carolyn... interesting contest (and LOTS of rules)!  I have an interesting idea but want to know how loosely we can apply the theme of "Landmarks".  Clearly there are some logical historical choices here in Dallas, but in my mind picking one of those low hanging fruits would be taking the "easy" way out.

Posted by Steve Shatsky over 9 years ago

C --- I'm not sure that I am creative enough for this, but am going to seriously think about it.

LOL @ Sally. :-)

Looking forward to it Barb. :-)

Steve, you can take the easy path or go on the road less traveled. :-)

Liz, you could always go straight up historical if you like. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 9 years ago

Come on Steve You know our Paralegal needs to make sure everything is covered.  She for one is not going to be caught without all bases dealt with!

Sis I love the photo.  1964 World's Fair material of course. 

Posted by Paddy (Patricia) Pizappi, Real Estate Associate Broker Hudson Valley NY (Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty) over 9 years ago

I knew that Flip camera would come in handy sometime.  I remember the 1964 World's Fair.....it is the only time I was ever in NYC.

Posted by Ann Allen Hoover, CDPE SRES ASP e-PRO Realtor - Homes for Sale - AL (RE/MAX Advantage South) over 9 years ago

Hey Carolyn...

Thanks for including "Whacked!!!" in the mix! BTW, am I missing something because I did not see a deadline for sunmissions?

Posted by Richard Weisser, Richard Weisser Retired Real Estate Professional (Richard Weisser Realty) over 9 years ago

C...

It's tempting to enter but alas I promised I would never cave and participate in a contest :)

Little by little I find myself wanting to cave. I wonder if I could get away with blaming that on senility :)

TLW...ROAR!

Posted by "The Lovely Wife" (Broker Bryantnulls Wife) The One And Only TLW. (President-Tutas Towne Realty, Inc.) over 9 years ago

Carolyn, What wonderful contests!  I'll try to come up with a good shot for it :)  I remember the world's fair--mostly just being facinated seeing people from all over the world!

Posted by Laura Cerrano, Certified Feng Shui Expert, Speaker & Researcher (Feng Shui Manhattan Long Island) over 9 years ago

Cool idea, Carolyn, but man there are are a lot of rules. Deadline???

Got some great ideas for both categories.

Jeff

Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude - Carlsbad (Solutions Real Estate ) over 9 years ago

Thank you, Paddy. I adore this place.  The kids love coming here as well. :-)

Ann, you have soooo gotta come back and visit. Seriously! :-)

Richard, my love, it's in the title of the post (LOL).

TLW, it's a woman's prerogative to change her mind (LOL). ;-) Mama, you can do anything you want. Seriously! We're your bay-bays. Think of it as showing us virtual wee one how to get 'er done. :-D

Thank you, Carole. I love the fact that Flushing Meadows has so many historical plaques available to describe the gifts we were given regarding this event.

Jeff, the deadline for submissions is Saturday May 2. :-)

 

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 9 years ago

This looks like fun and I am almost tempted to do it . I think I have some good ideas but maybe a little unsure of myself . I might need a little more experience just yet for this one.

Thanks

Liz

Posted by Elizabeth Benefield (Montana Country Real Estate) over 9 years ago

Elizabeth B, you don't need any experience. Just pick a spot in your neighborhood that's a landmark and take some shots and chat about it and the area that puppy is located in. Do it your way. Give me a peek into what you see when you travel around your neck of the woods. Go hyper-local and show me something I don't know. Believe me, there's a lot I do not know and haven't seen. Teach me. Show me. Don't compare yourself to anyone else. Eye candy is in the eye of the beholder.  :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 9 years ago

So, the Hooters girls at the blood drive I sponsored and participated in would qualify?  PG if not G...

Posted by Lane Bailey, Realtor & Car Guy (Century 21 Results Realty) over 9 years ago

LOL @ Lane. I am soooo not touching that. BTW, Mikey now has a cool aid grin (LMAO). ;-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 9 years ago

C - This is certainly something I could participate in, need to bookmark too late to follow any rules :)  I love your shot.

wow you're quite the RULEmaker AND RAINmaker!:-))) I made it through the rules and survived....usually i stop after "L"..:-) .......So I almost get it.......but I missed something...whats the THEME???  Local landmarks only where we live - or travel........or or or???

Posted by Liz Moras Migic, Chilliwack, British Columbia - Realtor over 9 years ago

Oh, yeah...I'm in for sure...you KNOW...how I love to take everyone on a sightseeing trip :) :)

Posted by Celeste "SALLY" Cheeseman, (RA) AHWD CRS ePRO OAHU HAWAII REAL ESTATE (Liberty Homes) over 9 years ago

Thank you Jennifer, looking forward to it. :-)

Liz, Landmarks is the theme. You get to pick what ever you can cover. You choose. :-)

C-Sally-C, looking forward to seeing what ever you cook up. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 9 years ago

Another contest, how fun! Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Posted by Sharon Alters, Realtor - Homes for Sale Fleming Island FL (Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty - 904-673-2308) over 9 years ago

Great idea for a contest. Las Vegas has imploded a lot of history to make way for the latest megaresorts, but I think I can still find a few good landmarks this week.

Posted by John Novak, Henderson, Las Vegas and Summerlin Real Estate (Keller Williams Realty The Marketplace) over 9 years ago

This sounds pretty interesting.. I take it my post on The Great Watermelon may not qualify.

Posted by Roland Woodworth, Q Realty - Power In Real Estate (Q Realty) over 9 years ago

Carolyn, Sounds like a lot of fun. Couldn't you simplify the rules just a little? Count me in anyway...

Ok, I'm on the hunt now for landmarks...I'm not sure there any real famous ones here in my neck of the woods, lots of history though.  I'll see what I can come up with!

Posted by Sharon Tara, New Hampshire Home Stager (Sharon Tara Transformations) over 9 years ago

Carolyn, This looks pretty cool so I need to remember to take my camera with me more often. I wish I had it earlier this month for some of the wacky 420 celebrations here in Austin! LOL

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (Realty Austin, Austin Texas Real Estate) over 9 years ago

This contest should have a lot of entries.  I'm in for sure.

Posted by Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor®, Lewisburg WV, the go to agent for all real estate (Vision Quest Realty, Martha Hilton, Broker) over 9 years ago

Lots of rules, but this could be fun. "Eye-candy," huh? Not sure that makes me think of my local community, but I'll figure something out.

Posted by Melissa Zavala, Broker, Escondido Real Estate, San Diego County (Broadpoint Properties) over 9 years ago

I had to read this post... turned out better than I was expecting.  I'm in... I already have my idea, how much is the prize money?  Thanks for generating interest.

HI Carolyn - I have not entered a contest for a while, and will try and enter this one. The weather has been cooperating, and I would like to take some more photos.

Will have to think hard about what I might want to enter :)  Lots of great local landmarks around here.

I can't wait to start seeing some of these. I have a couple of things in mind too.

Frank and Sharon, I am looking forward to it as well. :-)

John N, very cool. I love Robert's pics of the area and can't wait to see your take on this subject in L.V. :-)

Roland, I must admit I kinda wanna see the great watermelon (LOL). Work it in, bay-bay! Maybe your fruit can wear a hat and host the landmark tour (LOL). Yes, people, you may have lots of fun with it. Don't be shy! You can do alot with PG if you try. Seriously! ;-)

 

 

 

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 9 years ago

Carolyn - I love this stuff!

As soon as I get some time from doing actual Real Estate yes I'm in. Been so so busy lately. Hope I make the deadline. This kinda thing is right up my alley I believe. Very cool idea. Gotta go over all those rules again though. ugh....

Posted by Robert Hammerstein, Bergen County NJ Real Estate (Keller Williams Valley Realty) over 9 years ago

It's a good thing that I actually took pictures before my camera battery went dead, and that I learned how to make movies on the computer. Only thing I'm curious about: how do you do meta tags in wysiwyg?

Posted by William James Walton Sr., Greater Waterbury Real Estate (WEICHERT, REALTORS® - Briotti Group) over 9 years ago

Sounds like a great contest.  Who knows I might come up with something newsworthy yet.

Posted by Russ Ravary ~ Metro Detroit Realtor call (248) 310-6239, Michigan homes for sale ~ yesmyrealtor@gmail.com (Real Estate One) over 9 years ago

This sounds like such a fun contest, C.  I have a great idea on what subject I would use, too.  Thanks.

Posted by Heather Chavez, Real Estate Virtual, Assistant (928) 692-3235 (Second Self Virtual Assistance) over 9 years ago

Can you show us what one in the past? Want to make sure I have the rules straight.

Posted by Norma Brandsberg (Marks Realty Co. Inc., Lynchburg, VA, 540-586-9496) over 9 years ago

Oh my word, I owe a lot of people responses to their comments (LOL). I've been running around filming like crazy and have got to catch this post up. 

Michael, if I simplify the rules then the growth of the other groups wouldn't be contributed to. It's fun including the smaller to medium sized groups as partner contest hosts. Making one group a mandatory post and a couple of others optional contributes to more membership activity for us all. People usually post in their regular group lists, so if they want to play, they have to potentially expand their group list to possibly include the one or two they have never heard of or posted to if it is a mandatory post requirement. Then there is the link love involved (LOL) :-)

Janice, I do hope you will enter. :-)

Sarah G, eye candy is in the eye of the beholder. You can not screw up. :-)

Sharon T, looking forward to it! ;-)

Russell, have lots of fun with it. :-)

 

 

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 9 years ago

Rebecca G, sometimes that worries me (LOL). We have such a hard time judging these puppies because so many people contribute such good stuff. :-)

Melissa Z, I bet if you just made a small list of things to do from the rules you'd have a stellar outline. It's a lot easier than people think if they get past Wordy C. (LOL)

Matt is in! Awesome! ;-)

Sharon is coming out to play. Yay! 

Com on, Tammy. I know you're gonna cook something interesting up. You're one of my bay-bays! ;-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 9 years ago

Jeanette, are ya' kidding me? You have Disney!!! (LOL) You also have some stellar mansions. Really nice old estates... Hmm... what to do indeed. ;-)

Connie, I am a happy camper. Anticipation... (Yup. It's true. I'm singing the song - LOL) :-)

Christianne, come on over to the eye candy side, sweetie pie. I bet if you hang out with us long enough you will never blog the same again (LOL). :-D

Cindy J, I shall be awaiting your entry. :-)

 

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 9 years ago

Robert, the rules are window dressing (LOL).

William J, I am running out the door but I shall e-mail you when I get back.

Russ R, I bet you can. :-)

 

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 9 years ago

C: I don't know if I can beat your picture on this blog, that is pretty darn good! Sounds like a lot of fun thought.

Posted by Sandy Childs, Realtor - Spartanburg, SC (Keller Williams Realty) over 9 years ago

I keep saying that I'm going to do one of these and I still haven't. Maybe this will be the one.

Posted by JL Boney, III, Columbia, SC Real Estate (Coldwell Banker) over 9 years ago

Sandy C, do what you do lovely! Post away! :-)

JL, I hope this is the one. Lots of nice points up for grabs. :-)

C-Sally-C, my group e-mail has a mind of its own. It doesn't work, then it works late (LOL).

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 9 years ago

Robert, I hope you have time to snap a few shots of something today. If enough people bug us about an extension we'll have to consider it. I hate empty contest slots. Seriously! It's a waste of points... We want to be fair but we want the people who get theirs in on time not to be compromised as well. We'll just have to see how the day progresses. Please see if you can get your entry in. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 9 years ago

C, good luck with putting a wrap on this wonderful contest for the group. I always love your Unisphere picture because I was this little kid running around in that area when it was built. Brings back memories.

Trying to get a video one done too if I can...not sure if it's going to meet the 1.5 minute requirement and don't want to put all the work into doing it if it is not going to meet the requirements of a valid entry for the contest.

I'm backon track on my video. I've got a work around to post to youtube. I'll be here by midnight.  Criminy, not only was I off by 2 weeks, I had 3 appts today, and have had a migraine.  When it rains, it freekin hails golf balls.

Liz, I am having the most fascinating time reading my e-mail regarding this (LOL). Seems they forgot they had a week to get 'er done. :-)

Thank you, Gary. This should be very interesting. :-)

Jeff, awesome! Glad you could make it. :-)

Donna, my love, you can always add photographs to the montage if you need more visuals to fill up the minimum time. Unless, of course, you're talking about being over five minutes (LOL). :-)

Sally, looking forward to it. :-)

Robert, next time will be sooner than you think (LOL).

For some reason, it isn't showing up on Localism, even though I have posted it to Localism (California, Riverside County, Riverside, Historical Downtown District).  I don't know what the problem is.  I hope that doesn't disqualify me.  I worked really hard on this.

Heather, you are not too late. I've had six e-mails about people not being able to post (receiving error messages). We talked it over and decided not to penalize anyone who is trying to get their entry in. The deadline is extended one day to midnight tomorrow. I clicked the Localism links and got "this page has moved" messages (LOL).

Nothing makes me more crazy than to see that page. Error 404 is back playing havoc with my contest (LOL). The nerve of the server. How can you not find my bay-bays? Now I can't watch my movie because I have to answer a bunch of e-mail. I figured I'd nip it in the bud by posting the documentation here.

Yes. The server kicked my bay-bays out.

Yes, we are extending it for one more day until midnight.

Yes, you do have time to post.

No, I am not entertaining complaints regarding the judges deciding to let people post. THAT'S why we have multiple judges. Five heads are better than one and if three can agree then that's the end of the story. I'm sure if the other two were still on-line we'd have five in agreement. As it is, you can thank Mafia Wars for three of us being awake in Facebook. In my case, you may also want to thank the Minion Blur, which is why I am still playing Mafia Wars, Sorority and Farm Town  (LMAO). ;-)

Get your entries in people! This may or may not be maintenance issues. I sent yall a group e-mail and updated the contest post to get your attention. Gotta get back to my game. Will be peeking in and updating the blog roll with your links for the next few hours. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 9 years ago

Donna, I shall try an help you with that. I'm getting a bit of error e-mail updates and now have nine to answer. Seems I have quite a few last minute entries that are trying to work while the platform is going through a few late night adjustments (LOL). I'm sure we'll have your Localism link all done in a few. The Mixpo dashboard is linked into the AR dash, just like Localism. We will sort it all out in the end. :-)

I was thrilled to finally see a contest I could sink my teeth into. It's been a while since one sparked any creativity in me. I just wish I'd had more time. I have lots of video footage but it's not put together. It's 11:00 here... I have no idea what time it is on AR =/

Kate, the next one will be sooner than you think (LOL).

Lisa, save that footage. The next one is around the corner and down the block, so start editing that puppy (LOL). Will we be doing landmarks again? Maybe... Give me two weeks to chat with the boss of me (LOL) If Melodious is up to it, so am I. BTW, Localism has been very interesting this weekend. ;-)

Erik, glad you got that puppy in. ;-)

Yay Richard! ;-)

Hey Silvia, very cool. ;-)

Donna, there's an update for the plug in for the Firefox browser. Mine gets a little hinky once in a while as well. I like the Mozilla better, so I try to avoid IE unless I need the MLS (LOL).

Laura, lovely to see your entry. Glad you made it. :-)
