If you mean for GTG you need to wait for the 13th of May before you can post it, that is when the competition will start.

I noticed theres a rule that says: Images that have been digitally enhanced or manipulated are not allowed. No Photoshop or other photo editing software allowed.

So if i take a picture of my character in a RPG game or somthing, and added the G2G logo will i get disqualified?

Yes, obviously you need to edit out the picture in order to put the G2G logo. Unless I'm mistaken and that's allowed.

I was thinking you print the logo out and tape it or glue it to the surface then take the picture? Or maybe you take the pic then move it where you want it?

I think the rules are very clear, no editing whatsoever.
Be creative, and post your pic to multiple spots :)

Its all about fresh looks for the G2G logo, and showing your idea off!
Just have fun, see how many sites or hosts you can get your pic up on.
Please keep it clean, as some of the people here (ME) will hunt you down if G2G is disrespected :)

I would like to see a weird name tagged to every entry so when you Google it you see where all the postings are.
That would be cool.

The rules for this contest are very simple. Just try not to overcomplicate things.

Thats it, exactly.
==============

Do you guys know were I can submit my picture at, im sorry i am soo confused at this point.

Please read the thread in its entirety. This is right at the top of the thread.

Note - This thread will open for submissions on May 13th at 12:01am CDT. You may get your submission ready before then, but this thread will remain closed until the contest opens on May 13th. Do not attempt to post your entry anywhere else on this site. Entries not submitted to this thread will be void.

Please refer to rule #6. Its pretty well laid out.

Images that have been digitally enhanced or manipulated are not allowed. No Photoshop or other photo editing software allowed.

==============

I was thinking you print the logo out and tape it or glue it to the surface then take the picture?

This is correct.
==============
These rules are meant to be as clear as possible. No matter how we worded them, someone would be confused. With 1/4 of a million members, it is impossible to please everyone.

The contest is actually very simple. Take the logo and print it. Take that print outside (or inside) and stick it somewhere. Put it somewhere creative. Then take a picture of it in its new home.

You can print the logo as big or small as you can handle. Does this clear some things up?

I am not sure where you got your information. Let me try to comment.

First, you do not need to get any pictures up on multiple hosts. Just choose one.

Second, no one here will hunt anyone down. Period.

Third, tag? The pictures are hosted elsewhere, but the only ones that count are the ones that are submitted in the contest thread.

Lets not try to complicate things. Remember, simple.

Take a picture. Host it at one of the listed sites. Post the picture in the contest thread (when it opens). Sit back and enjoy everyone else's picture.
