Last month you'll have seen the results of our first Photochop Challenge. We published 25 of the very best entries and the remaining 50 or so can be found at eurotuner.com.
All the entrants told us how much they enjoyed the exercise, so we're going to repeat it, only this time you won't be manipulating a photo of the VW GTI. This time we spoke to our friends at BMW, who kindly gave us permission to use this image of the new E92 Coupe.
The car's already stunning but we know you see it as a blank canvas for your photochop skills. So we're inviting you to either scan the photo from the magazine, or visit eurotuner.com and download the image. The rest is up to you. We don't mind what you do, provided you use this photo so everybody has the same starting point. After that you can change the color of the car, add wheels, spoilers, seats, lights, stickers, whatever turns you on.
And just so it's not all for nothing, we persuaded Oakley another of its Adaptable Payload backpacks, which we'll be awarding to the entry we select as the best. This little beauty retails at $120 and features a padded back panel and shoulder straps, adjustable chest and waist straps, nylon web carry handle, main entry storm flap and custom D-ring tie downs. There are also side flap pockets with compression straps and D-ring closures, icon zipper pulls and it even has a removable suspension system. The Oakley AP Pack is all you'll ever need and we're giving it away to the best photochopper out there.
Get your entries to us by 2/2/07 - that's more than six weeks after this issue goes on sale, and should gives you enough time to create something spectacular.
You can email your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org provided they aren't more than 2Mb files. If they exceed this limit, please copy them to a CD and mail it to us at Photochop, eurotuner magazine, 6420 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90048. Please ensure your images are a minimum of 500Kb at 300dpi or we won't be able to print them. Remember, this is just for fun so there are none of the usual competition rules. You can be a professional or complete amateur - we don't care. You can even have a go with colored pencils if your grasp of technology is the same as ours!
So have a go, have some fun and we look forward to seeing the results. We promise the best entries (and the worst!) will appear in a future issue.
