As we finally get out of that wretched groundhog's shadow, and we get a little more sun in each day, the idea of camping starts to sound nice. Now, it shouldn't, after last year's fiasco what with the ticks and the wind and the hermit crabs, oh man, the hermit crabs. Yet still we venture out, and, politely offering us a Spring contest theme, so do all of our woots.

Depict a camping (or camp) scene with one or more products.

Maybe they're scouts, maybe they're camp counselors, or maybe they're Survivorman. No, they can't be from The Deliverance. Can they build a fire? Are they able to navigate the rapids? Who is telling the scariest ghost stories? It is your job to answer our questions, but moreso, to ask your own.

Post your entry here by 11:59 AM (central) on Monday, April 6, 2009. Prizes are $20/$50/$100 for 3rd/2nd/1st. The rules and criteria for winning: our panel of volunteer judges can and will make stuff up as it goes along. Use Photoshop, linoleum blocks, pastels, MSPaint, cave painting, tattoos, tribal scarification, whatever, but it’ll only be judged if it’s visible in our forums as a jpg, gif, or png. As we are fond of saying, try to keep your maximum width to 550px. If you need a place to host your pictures, try www.imageshack.ws or www.photobucket.com. We have no connection to either, but they seem 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. The more sure we are that you did your own work, the more likely we are to consider it for a prize.

Ok...not exactly camping, but it has the word "camp". I think that's good enough.
