    [​IMG] GBAtemp Halloween 2009 Competition
    Over 20 prizes to win!
    This year's Halloween is coming up very soon! So get your best costumes ready 'cause... GBAtemp is proud to announce its Halloween 2009 Competition!

    [​IMG]

    The theme is very simple: post a photo of your Halloween costume. Here are the terms and conditions for entering this competition.
    • The competition is open to all members: newcomers, regulars, staff... Yes, staff can enter this one too since the winners will be designated by an external jury. All you need is an account on GBAtemp!
    • You may post only one photo, so choose carefully! Furthermore, to make sure you aren't posting a photo from last year's costume (or simply someone else's), you'll need to include a piece of evidence in the photo, such as GBAtemp's mascot - and we want the real deal, not a photoshop job.
    • The competition will close on November 2nd, 23:59 GMT. Which means you have two days past the actual Halloween day to submit your entry.
    • To submit your entry, simply post your photo as a reply to this very news topic. For hosting the photo, you may use your own GBAtemp Picture Upload Space, if you have the sufficient privileges for it.
    This competition is sponsored by IShopVideoGame!

    Here are the 21 prizes awarded for the winners:[​IMG] Many thanks to Ishopvideogame.com for their generosity!

    I don't like the sponsor site. :/

    "Always trustable and reliable R4 cards". Uhh, no. Their R4 page claims the original supports SDHC. Anything other than that is a clone, no?
    Even the Acekard has this as a desciption: "Ishopvideogame provides genuine R4 cards for all customers FOREVER".

    Runners up prizes don't seem awesome enough so I won't be entering this competition.

    How nice, only members from a few countries will be able to participate since Halloween isn't a worldwide celebration.

    There's no harm dressing up just for the occasion. You don't really need to go out trick-or-treating.

    You could say the same for Christmas ("post a picture of your christmas tree"), New Year, Easter, April fools and all the rest [​IMG]
    But that won't prevent us from holding competitions. Cause we like fun and we love our members.

    Besides, the competition was suggested by the sponsor themselves, not by us. [​IMG]

    I'm against the condition of entering, not the competition itself actually. It could have as well been a lottery or a pumpkin curving contest or whatever [​IMG]

    Staff can enter? That makes for a change. I'm going to a friends halloween party this weekend so I'll be sure to snap a pic of my outfit. I haven't. Decided what it will be yet though.

    Don't really think there was a need to quote the whole news post just to pick out that one typo.
