Oh, terrific! Another photo-oriented Friday product! Now, all we need is Quailmann7 to log on, read this contest, and post ANYTHING (including today's product of course). That's right Quailmann7 today is your lucky day! You haven't won a contest in quite some time, so we figured we'd throw you the proverbial bone. Afterall, what good is this printer/camera combo if not to gnaw on.

Don't forget POST ANYTHING. You've got an extra couple of days this time around, in honor of you being so awesome. Anyway... don't expect us to post the announcement of your unforeseeable win until Wednesday, July 5, cause we're major slackers and dont' have to work like you do. Oh, and thanks for being you.

Post your entry here by by 11:59 PM CST on Tuesday, July 4, 2006... other than that all the other rules have been thrown right out the window... so feel free to just do whatever you want, you can't lose.

Past money winners: Quailmann7, since you've been in the money before, we figure you'll probably nominate yourself again, so we'll just put that in for you and save you the trouble... just make sure to post something.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ENTRY: WOOT!.... sweet... thanks for this awesome opportunity!

The chop is pretty weak, but I've got no competition!
Nobody can stop me now!!! Not even wonderstew!

Kinda reminds me of the SNL Celebrity Jeopardy skit where Trebek tells them to "write down anything" and they would win. I believe it was Keanu Reeves who wrote down nothing...

And the LORD said unto the chicken: "Go ye forth, and cross the road". And the chicken did go forth to cross the road, and there was much rejoicing.

This weeks contest? You losers complain about how much you have no use for our products. Here's your chance to take that one step further.
Present an image of Firday's woot with someone who couldn't make any use of it whatsoever.

SHOW US HOW THINGS SHOULD BE; EASY AND SIMPLE - UNLIKE THE ACTUAL THEME OF THIS CONTEST!



Like a modern day Polaroid, only bigger, clunkier, slower, and more expensive. Ain't technology grand???

Back in my day we kept things forever. I still have my original IBM PC with 8086 processor. In fact, woot.com runs on it.

Sure our Vivitar cameras are nice and new and clean, but it doesn't mean they'll always be that way, you neglectful bastards. You know darn well you're gonna play with it for 2 or 3 days then leave it outside in the rain just like you did with the puppy we got you last year.

Show us what will happen to either product when you leave it outside, forgotten, for months.

Your entry shouldn't suck. And find your own damn host for it.



Cool theme JT! I call this entry RUST, as if these China-made pieces of shipwreck would ever actually be made out of something more durable than recycled toilet paper holders.

"There's a seat for every ass and ass for every seat." Most certainly, everyone who has been living amongst the rest of us for the past five years must already have a photo printer and digital camera, yet there seem to be some holdouts...otherwise, why would manufacturers continue to produce and distribute the mediocre? Your challenge this week:

Target market a specific demographic to increase sales of the Lexmark Photo Printer w/ Vivitar 5MP Digital Camera Bundle.

Post your entry here by by 11:59 PM CST on Tuesday, July 4, 2006. Prizes are $200/$500/$1000 for 3rd/2nd/1st. The rules and criteria for winning: our panel of octogenarians can and will make stuff up as their minds wander off. Use Photoshop, pen and ink, collage, MSPaint, Spirograph, iron-on transfers, BINGO daubers whatever, but it’ll only be judged if it’s visible in our forums as a jpg, gif, or png. Try to keep your maximum width to 450px. If you need a place to host your pictures try www.imageshack.us. It's free and easy to use. And if you want us to be sure your entry was indeed your work, post links to your source images.

Thanks to the alignment of the planets and the juxtaposition of the stars with each other, we have had two, count 'em, two Friday Photographic Woots in a row. I am runnin' on empty, running blind. Accordingly, your task this week, running into the sun, is to incorporate the Lexmark printer and Vivitar 5 megapixel camera bundle into a board game of some sort. and, just for the hell of it, also incorporate as many Woot.com related words as well. throw in a couple of mystery terms that only the most prolific and most win-producing Photochopping welder will recognize.

and do all that stuff we always ask you to- you know, the Photobucket, the Imageshack, the pen and ink , the sharing of the source images (unless it is painfully obvious that you made the picture yourself), the getting it done by Monday midnight central- oh , but due to the holiday that occurs on Tuesday, we won't ask for the entries until Tuesday midnight this week. Just for the halibut.




First Prize - $100
Josephus' Scrabble Deluxe

Josephus showed us more than we ever wanted of his tedious nature with this entry, but the clever, wonderstew-like transparent displacement of the Rust-bucket Bingo from his letter holder to the board was sheer genius!
check out his link to the full size image to appreciate the wonder of this entry.


In the interest of completeness, Josephus did point out that the original was a photo he took, after filling the scrabble board in a vicious game with his wife. All words are acceptable scrabble words, with the exception of fedex and woot. Sorry Bug.

Well, you've just purchased your first digital camera, so now the in-laws can stop complaining about the lack of pictures of your happy little offspring. The problem is, you've spent all of this money, now how are you going to keep the sticky ice-cream coated, gummy bear stained fingers off of your new things?

Your goal is to show us a children's themed image of something that will help you get the point across to the rugrats: Hands off the Lexmark printer/Vivitar Camera bundle!

"Igor, would you give me a hand with the bags?"
"Certainly, you take the blonde and I'll take the one in the turban."


Why are we quoting a classic movie line? Yes, we know it's our country's birthday... and yes, we know that a lot of people will be celebrating it, too. However, the genius' here at Woot are taking note of another birthday celebration; one that could be, with your help, greater than that of a stupid fireworks display. We are referring to the birthday of a great American, Mel Brooks.

"Would you like to roll in ze hay? Roll, roll, roll..."

No, thank you, not a roll in ze hay today. It's the birthday weekend of Mel "Mr. Awards" Brooks, himself. You know who he is and you either love him or you hate him. Either way your entry for this week's Photoshop contest should be very interesting:

Photoshop a famous scene from that great Mel Brooks hit movie, "Young Frankenstein" and include the Lexmark Photo Printer w/ Vivitar 5MP Digital Camera Bundle. Extra points awarded for including Dr. Frankenstein's laboratory assistant, Igor. Points taken away if you make the Printer Bundle his hump. Whatever you do do, make it real, make it good, make it really good.

Post your entry here by by 12:59 AM EST on Wednesday, July 5, 2006. Prizes are $100/$50/$20 for 1st/2nd/3rd. The rules and criteria for winning: our panel of geniuses can and will make stuff up as it goes along. Use Photoshop, pen and ink, collage, MSPaint, Spirograph, iron-on transfers, guitar tablatures, whatever, but it’ll only be judged if it’s visible in our forums as a jpg, gif, or png. Try to keep your maximum width to 550px. If you need a place to host your pictures, try imageshack.ws, photobucket.com, or wootimagehosting.net. We have no connection to the first two, but they seem free and easy to use, especially the last one (phenominal donation required). And if you want us to be sure your entry was indeed your work, post links to your source images. If you want us to be sure your entry was indeed copied from someone else, post links to the original image. The more sure we are that you did (or did not do) your own work, the more likely we are to consider it for a prize (or permanently ban you from the site).

Dr. Frankenstein: "What a filthy job."
Igor: "Could be worse."
Dr. Frankenstein: "How?"
Igor: "Could be raining."


Past money winners: If you'd like to nominate any entries from this week's contest, email your selections (with links to the individual post) to me at jtoon@woot.com by 1:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday.

You have a point...

Theme: If the printer could be used to print out ACTUAL items whose picture was taken with the digital camera, show a celebrity, real or fictional, and what they would "print" out.



Same sources as before

Global Warming. Car Emissions. Glaciers Melting. What if we could end all the bad stuff and live wild and free again? Well, let's face it... most of us aren't going to be able to live without our techy toys, late night woot! purchases, and dreams of Blinged-Out Cabbage.

But what if there could be a compromise? This week, show us how the Lexmark printer/Vivitar camera bundle can fit into this impossible dream of an all-natural lifestyle. The more you anger PETA with your ideas, the better!
