Default JConcepts oOple competition - Big prizes!

JConcepts and oOple have teamed up to bring another great competition to oOple forum users. Another opportunity to put to use your creative skills, the top prize will go to competitor who submits the best race report this month, closing date January 12th.


Check out the competition page here for more information: http://www.oople.com/rc/media/jconceptscompetition/

And remember, if you don't manage to win the awesome top prize then there are great prizes on offer for the second and third places entries. So get creative, don't miss out because you don't think you can do it - you get nothing if you don't try so GO FOR IT.

I'm sure you'll find plenty of stuff out there, if not the actual BJ4 I'm sure there will be body shells, wheels, tyres, stuff like that. It will be interesting to see how creative everyone can be.

Ben mag, i expected more optimism from you! You've done race reports before - you're a natural. The competition isn't about how expensive your camera is, or what software you've got. Creativity is about you, and what you can do that stands out from the rest. You're mad enough, so i'm sure you'll come up with something crazy

I've got somebody with a BJ4 coming down so im going to have a go at writing the report about them or with the main focus on their performance. hoping to have a big of video as well as a few photographs, I don't have anything fancy video camera wise but hopefully should get a few usable shots.

You need to compress your images:-

Select the first image in the document and go to format > picture. Then in the pop up window press the compress button and put a check next to "apply to all pictures in document". Then ok, and apply.

Writing race reports is hard. I would much prefer straight video/photography competitions
