IndyScribe Holiday Photo Contest
If you send us a digital photo of your favorite greater Indianapolis area holiday display (christmas lights, a nativity scene, menorrah, your own tree, funny yard displays, etc.), we'll post the best pictures here on this page. Then we'll pick our favorite image (with coaching from people commenting) and send the photographer an IndyScribe t-shirt, as seen in our store, unless we design a cooler shirt before then. Sound interesting?
Here be the rulez:
1) Must be a display from somewhere in the greater Indianapolis area -- you need to provide the address or at least the street or neighborhood where the display is located.
2) Include your name or at least the name you want us to display on your submission.
3) Must be a picture you took and not something ripped off from the Indy Star. Don't send us copyright-infringing stuff.
4) Photos should be at least 480 x 360 pixels, so we can see the cool stuff.
5) If you kidnap the baby Jebus and send us the hostage photos, we are not responsible. We might post the pictures, but we won't post bail or take the fall. So don't break the law! (or at least don't get caught.)
6) You know us: we're not exactly sentimental, so we're probably going to vote for funny, oddball or strange pictures. Photos of ginormous light displays are especially welcome; show us IPALCO's favorite customers.
7) Contest ends on December 21st, when we'll announce the winner.
And, hey, if you get a chance to pass this contest along to other blogs, could you? That would be awesome. Happy Holidays! I'm off to find some spiked eggnog.
Jerry Wiley sends in a photo of his Christmas pig (located in Lebanon):
Additional Pictures after the jump....
Unfortunately, this picture wasn't taken here in Indianapolis, and so doesn't qualify for the contest. It's darned cool, though.
At one time, I saw a light display that was simply a giant arrow on the roof of a house, pointing at the front lawn, and on the lawn were blue lights laid out like a landing strip, telling Santa where to go. Subtle and cool.
Brian Lalor sends in this picture of a house on New Jersey between 54th and 55th. Notice the lovely alternating candy-cane-stripe lights.
Jim St. John sent in this light display:
This display is patterned after the one circulating on the internet. Music is nroadcast on 97.5 FM. The display is about 12,000 lights and is located in Carmel, one block North of 106th, on the East side of Ditch Road.
