Welcome to the Bigshot Rally: A photographic adventure through Vancouver.
Bigshot Rally 2005 is an event designed to get Vancouverites outside enjoying the magnitude of this city. This event is a photographic rally, where each team is given a list of photographs to take from their own point of view. This event will not only encourage creativity, it will encourage teams to venture outside of their day-to-day activities. We are aimed to help promote creativity throughout this city, and would love to have you on board with us.
This event will take place from Aug 29th to Sept 5th (over the Labour Day long weekend), giving teams ample time to find the perfect photograph for each section. Teams will then submit each photograph on a specific webserver that we have installed, allowing everyone to see all photographs once the competition is complete.
We have some renowned photographers on hand to judge this event, and we will allow for some online voting! Prizes will include getaways throughout BC from our affiliates, cash prizes, and discounts to local attractions. This photographic adventure will help to promote Vancouver as a city, and we are hoping to build this into an annual event, possibly even bi-annual, and we would love for you to be on board from the start. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns * and we look forward to hearing from you.
This 7 day event is a locally-run photo rally that allows participants from the Lower Mainland to explore their city through the lens of a camera. There will be 15 categories, each one open to the interpretation of each team. There will also be 3 bonus shots that will be optional, giving each team another chance to win and be recognized. Participants can pair up into groups of 2-10 people, and must create a team image and the team name must appear in each photograph submitted.
All cameras are allowed.
All teams must sign a disclosure form upon entry giving Big Shot Rally commercial rights to the photographs submitted. Photographs may not be digitally altered.
Judging will occur from September 6th - 9th 2005, and winners will be announced on September 10th via email. An email address is required to gain entry into this contest. Prizes include trips to various British Columbian vacation spots, as well as bonus prizes donated by supporters.
Bigshot Rally is a fully integrated production company fueled by Surgenia Inc., a web and graphic company, and Dawn Communications Inc., a public relations and social marketing company. From full scale web and graphic design, to the originally designed big shot photo web server, to the catering of all media and marketing needs, Bigshot Rally is capable of handling all areas needed to create a full campaign.
Happy riding and shooting
