A new contest is being offered by Tonner Doll Company. Check it out--from their latest email:
In celebration of the 75th Anniversary of The Wizard of Oz film, we are holding a creative contest sure to inspire! You can enter the photo category or the story category.
For the Photo Contest, the rules are simple: photograph your favorite Wizard of Oz doll(s) from your personal collection, and send us your art! JPEGS please.
For the Story Contest, here's what we want you to do: In 500 words or less, come up with an alternate ending to the Wizard of Oz!
We'll pick the top three photographs and the top three stories as finalists, and the winner will be chosen by....YOU! The People. There will be a People's Choice email survey sent out, where the public can vote for their favorite Photograph and their favorite alternate ending.
Each of the 6 finalists (3 photos, 3 stories) will get their choice of Tonner's NEW 75th Anniversary Oz Collection Basic doll (Absolutely Glinda or Absolutely Wicked Witch). There will be 2 Grand Prize Winners: The People's Choice for Photography and The People's Choice for Storyline. Each will receive a 19" Wizard of Oz Artist's Proof and a signed and framed sketch by Robert Tonner.
Please send all entries to Contests@Tonnerdoll.com. All entries must be received no later than Wednesday, February 19th, 2014. For photography entries, JPEGS please. Finalists will be announced shortly thereafter.
