Leap Year Photographic Competition

29th February 2012

We are running a brand new photographic competition to celebrate today, 29th February 2012, with the goal of showcasing your favourite Irwin Allen collectibles.

Over the past 50 years, an amazing number of collectibles have been produced to celebrate and promote all of the Irwin Allen movies and television shows. This is your opportunity to show off with pride your amazing Irwin Allen collectibles. If you have a large collection of Irwin Allen toys etc, why not gather them together for a photo shoot.

If your collection is more modest as many of ours are, try some creative and fun photography showcasing which collectibles you treasure most. Collections can include books, toys, DVDs, photo collections, badges, magazines, posters, model kits and builds, and all other kinds of Irwin Allen paraphernalia. A small judging panel of Irwin Allen fans (not including any competitors) will decide between them which are the favourite collection photos. If they are available, we may even ask one or two Irwin Allen actors to take a look at the competition entries and help with the judging process.

Remember, it’s not about how many collectibles you own, but on how you present and treasure them. If you don’t have a digital camera, see if a friend or member of your family can take a snapshot of your Irwin Allen collectible(s) with their mobile phone and email the photo over as an attachment.

The best photographs will be featured and credited to your name (either your full name or a nickname if you prefer) in a special permanent gallery at the end of the competition.

Some inventive or creative ideas might be to create a Time Tunnel backdrop and photograph your collectibles in front of it. Or use camera angles to depict a giant picking up one of your Land of the Giants collectibles. If you have some photo editing software, why not add some special photographic effects to add a typical “Irwin Allen” atmosphere to your photograph. There are endless possibilities. Most of all, have fun seeing your collectibles in a different light.
