HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US
The Grey Arrows Drone Club is pleased to announce its first Birthday!
Today, 17th August 2018, we are officially one year old!
In order to celebrate our birthday we are holding a Birthday
Challenge Competition, with actual PRIZES!
In keeping with tradition we’re also offering you the chance to win a super rare, exclusive badge to grace your Profile page! Haven’t heard of GADC’s awesome awards? Check out our announcement regarding Badges, Awards and Challenges.
So without further ado, welcome to the ‘2018 Birthday Competition’!
The objective is simple - post the single very best photograph you have ever taken with your drone and tell us why this is your very best photo.
The winners, as voted by other GADC members, will be awarded exclusive champion’s badges.
Not only that, but we have also have three actual PRIZES available for you to win in our Birthday Competition!
The prizes are:
1st Place Winner - A Ryze (DJI) Tello Drone
2nd Place Winner - £50 to spend at Heliguy.com
3rd Place Winner - £25 to spend at Heliguy.com
On top of the physical prizes, we also (and more importantly!) have three exclusive awards available for you to win in our first competition. They are:
1st Place Winner - Gold Trophy
2nd Place Winner - Silver Trophy
3rd Place Winner - Bronze Trophy
The rules and small print for this competition are as follows:
You must post your picture in this thread in order for it to be eligible (feel free to also post / duplicate it in the #media:photos category if you wish).
You may only post one picture / entry
Unlike our Challenges where photographs have to be taken during the challenge dates, the date your photograph for this competition was taken is irrelevant - a photograph from any date may be entered
Your entry must be accompanied by a paragraph of text between 50 and 250 words long, explaining why this is your best photograph. Perhaps this is your best photo because it was your maiden flight, your best flying experience, a location that is special to you, a most excellent adventure, fantastic holiday, etc. You must also tell us where the photograph was geographically taken (there are no restrictions on location, a photo taken in any country is eligable)
This competition is open from 06:00 on 17th August 2018 until 21:00 on 31st August 2018, the closing date. Media posted to this thread outside of these dates will not be eligible
Photographs must have been shot using a camera attached to, or built into, your drone - while your drone was in the air
The photograph must be a whole, or part, of a single photo or video frame. Panos are not eligible
If taking a photograph solely for the purposes of this competition, please abide by the Drone Code when shooting your media
All GADC members should cast their ‘vote’ by simply clicking the ‘Like’ button on each entry they wish to vote for
GADC members can Like as many entries / posts as they wish
The post with the highest number of Likes at 21:00hrs on the closing date will be deemed the first-place winner and that member will be awarded the exclusive 1st Place Gold Trophy and the Ryze Tello drone. The post with the second highest number of Likes will be awarded the 2nd Place Silver Trophy and the £50 Heliguy store credit, and the post with the third highest number of Likes will be awarded the 3rd Place Bronze Trophy and the £25 Heliguy store credit.
