Ranjith
from hyderabad
8 years ago

I don't know if meme photos is the correct term. Foot in mouth

What I meant was a post with pictures taken from the net and text added to the pictures to make it appear funny or express some opinion - the ones which are found on facebook. Innocent

I have some videos made 8-9 years ago when I was studying which seem to fit the explorer tag! But I am in two minds whether to submit them or not, as they are totally mindless and crazy!!
Ranjith
from hyderabad

This contest is all about being crazy! Cool So, submit them without a second thought. Laughing

DS

The fact is that those videos are not choreographed but we just said whatever came to our minds at that time! lol, we did not even plan to take any videos, it was all just spur of the moment acts!! And I know why you encourage me to publish, you want to enjoy watching that! :P
Ranjith

Yes! Yes! Cool

The only thing I know is that your college experiences / videos will definitely be a bit funny. Tongue out

When this contest started, I wrote an excellent post (in my opinion) and also read the standard Terms and Conditions.

Just now, I read the contest page and saw that the entry/post must have a link to tatasafari.com.

Fortunately, I was able to modify the post to include the link. I am simply wondering if this is a mandatory rule (causing posts without the link to be automatically disqualified) and if this is a common requirement in IndiBlogger contests.

Nandini Deka
from Bombay
8 years ago

contests are held by sponsors to promote their brands, so its natural they make posting their link mandatory...otherwise whats the point of holding contest?

Ranjith
from hyderabad
8 years ago

I wonder if they would be first filtering entries based on whether there is a link to the sponsor's website or not. Tongue out

But to be on the safe side, why not include it? It is just a link and nothing else. Innocent

two possibilities:

(1) Renie shall take a humble stand like the way Manmohan singh said yes to the  UPA ordinance on tainted candidates.

(2) Renie shall take a heroic stand like Rahul Gandhi and shall say- "extention is a trash and we should quash it."

Hey, this is my first time trying to enter a contest and I just read that it is only for Indian residents. I have a redundant question but I will just ask because I want to be sure. I live in USA but I am an Indian does this make me ineligible?

Ranjith
from hyderabad
8 years ago

Even though the T&C state that it is open to Indian residents, I think you too can participate as you are an Indian and if you win a prize, you can give an Indian postal address for the gift! Smile If you want to confirm, you can send a mail here. There is nothing you will lose by participating, so just enter ignoring the rules! Wink

Thank you Ranjith. I sent them a mail, hopefully will get a reply before its too late.Smile I will just write and submit as you said there is nothing I will lose.Smile

I gave the link of  Tata safari.com at the bottom of the story, is tht ok?? (as thy hv asked to include the link in the entries) 

 

 

Ranjith

Adding images is not compulsory unless you want a prize in the photo blog category ( for that you must post your own pictures )

You can add the link anywhere : at the starting or ending.

I think the contest brief has just changed... it seems to have become too tame now. None of the earlier 'edge of the universe' stuff there.

Why?

Jitaditya Narzary
from Delhi

even I wrote it according to the old brief... hadn't checked the new developments... Surprised

Nandini Deka
from Bombay
8 years ago

it changed many days back and commented upon few pages back on this thread too

Ranjith
from hyderabad
8 years ago

Why?

May be because very few entries were received. The same thing was done was Diesel contest also.

@ JN The current topic also has the previous topic as a part of it. So, entries written according to the previous topic will also be valid! Laughing

Avadhoot

Storme is a car and not a spaceship and it can't get out of the planet.

IMHO, topic has become  more pragmatic now.Smile

And  contests are  held for the promotion of the product only.

Anita

In my Sci-fi entry, my Tata Safari Storme is an All-In-1-Explorer Vehicle that helps us get the best from the Universe! Smile

I loved giving wings to my imagination and saving Planet Earth as per the initial brief! Innocent
