Gunfire // 2012 photo contest:
Time for another of Gunfire’s famous competitions. This time you’ll get to shoot your camera instead of your gun. So – a photo contest. It doesn’t have any lead theme, the only thing is that the photos need to show airsoft as a hobby.
It is very likely, that we will use the winning photos when preparing the Gunfire 2013 calendar – though that’s not sure yet
The photos don’t have to be made specially for the contest, they can be even your old photos made a year or two ago – it’s your free will and all up to you. But we do hope that the quality will be at least comparable to the prizes we have for you.
What are the prizes?

So much for the official part, now some advice and a short summary:
1. Point 6. refers mainly to the fact, that the photo may be used in the Gunfire 2013 calendar.
2. We remind you that the theme of the contest is airsoft – with all it’s pros and cons – so it is sure that photos showing airsoft players wearing eye protection or during activities more common to airosft than to regular military will be judged higher.
3. Photos showing real people will be preferred to those showing guns or gear.
4. PhotoShop is useful… as long as you know when to stop. That’s why, in most cases, strongly altered photos will have a smaller possibility of winning. We wish to reward the photographer,not the post-producer
5. Of course all accents linked with Gunfire will be welcomed, but again – don’t overdo it; we wouldn’t want it to be something that would spoil the composition or steal the show.
