Tempmas Week 2: Photography Contest! [updated]

RULES UPDATED & DEADLINE EXTENDED.

Welcome to the second week of Tempmas!

While the staff is still voting to elect winners for week 1 (announcement to be made before the 25th), it's time to start our second competition right now. Here it is!

Tempmas week 2: a photography contest! The rules are:
  • Take a picture of your Christmas tree, or your Christmas or New Year decorations (or other current festivities)
  • The picture must somehow feature Tempy, our mascot, and a mention to the year 2017 (to make sure your picture is not taken from past events).
  • Tempy and the mention to the year 2017 must be real, not digitally added to the picture. It can come in any form: a printout that you hold in your hand while taking the picture, an actual decoration on the tree, a Tempy cookie -- the purpose of these 2 elements (Tempy & 2017) is just so you can prove the photo was taken for this competition and not stolen from somewhere else.
  • In order for this contest to be fair for a greater number of people, the photo cannot be digitally enhanced via Photoshop or any other software. If we allowed it, y'all Photoshop mastas would add super cool effects to make the photo better looking. The only thing we will allow is, well, cropping, resizing, or rotating the image, obviously.
  • Post your photo in this thread to enter
  • No animations, videos, etc. Only JPG pictures will be allowed
  • Enter before December 31st at 11:59AM UTC
  • The winner will be designated through a staff vote, results will be announced before New Year's Eve
And what will these winners be getting this year? Let's find out!!

Prize #1: a brand new New Nintendo 2DS XL bundle delivered to your doorstep!

You may ask: how do you get to win? based on what criteria will the judges vote?
The answer is: this is of course a very subjective vote. If the judge likes your photo they will vote for it.
There's nothing more to it.

Ah, this one I may just enter. I have a few photos from a while back that I liked quite a bit, but they're of nature and perhaps won't tickle many people's fancies here. I also have terrible artistic sense in general, so I'd say my chances to win are slim to none, but I'm looking forward to seeing everyone else's submissions. ^_^ As for my Christmas tree, I may just be able to spruce it up to look nice for a photograph.

I want a N2DSXL. It'll mean I'll be able to use those $100 I've saved up so far for it for something else. I'll definitely post mine. Is it still possible to get Tempy merch, delivered before this contest ends?

When it's early morning and you misread it as Pornography Contest....
That was actually a legitimate mistake.
There is a porn section in here, strictly reserved to elite members. Their contest was indeed a pornographic photo one.

Seriously? What do you mean by 'elite?' Do you mean staff? Or, GBATemp Legends? Either way that's hilarious.
