    The contest:
    This is a really really simple contest!
    Simply post a pic of your favorite gift from this year!
    The more creative your picture, the better your chances of winning!
    There will be several prizes given out!
    So come on down! Try your luck! Get prizes for your gifts!
    Yes! It must be a picture of a gift which you received this year! (not just christmas! birthdays, anniversaries, etc all count!)

    The prizes:
    Will be determined based on the pictures presented.

    Important dates:
    Deadline: January 4th
    Winners Announced: January 5th
    Prize Distributions: Various

    In short:
    You are to take a creative picture of a gift which you received at some point this year. You may receive a prize if your picture is creative enough.

    creative doesn't mean:
    Lie something on a desk and take a snapshot.

    creative does mean:
    A carefully set up scenario that shows off your gift.

    Official rules:
    1. You must take a picture of your gift. No copy/pasting from some website. Must be an original image.
    2. It must be a gift which you received. No taking pictures of something that's not yours.
    3. Gift must be from this year. I'll know if you're cheating.
    4. One entry per person.
    5. Prizes subject to availability.

    Is this real? If it is, I don't think it belongs in the EoF.

    Putting it in the EoF makes it seem like a joke, really. Plus less people will see it because of it's placement in the EoF. That said, if you truly feel that it belongs here, then by all means.
