Popular Obama Action Figure Serves As Catalyst To Explore “The Man Behind The Office”
How does President Obama spend his precious free time outside the office? Inquiring minds will know soon, at least according to the imaginations of photographers participating in an unusual and unprecedented competition.
Photographers from all over the country, both amateur and professional, are competing to show the world just what Obama is doing with his leisure time in the PHOTOBAMA freestyle CONTEST presented by Brooklyn-based Jailbreak Toys. (http://www.jailbreaktoys.com/ ).
Using creativity, inspiration, and artistry, contestants will pose the Obama Action Figure by Jailbreak Toys in places and situations they imagine the Commander-In-Chief to be during his free time. Contest rules and the early submissions can be found here: http://www.jailbreaktoys.com/ Photobama_Freestyle_Contest_s/ 58.htm
What does the winner of PHOTOBAMA freestyle receive? Only one of the coolest new gadgets on the market- the Flip MinoHD Camcorder! Contestants will also have a chance to win impossible-to-getlimited edition Obama Action Figures. Not only that, but 1st and 2nd place winners will receive one of the very first, yet-to-be-unveiled Michelle Obama Action Figures from Jailbreak Toys, signed by Jailbreak Toys founder, Jason Feinberg.
Prizes will go the photographer whose entry receives the most votes from the public and, using the latest technology, Jailbreak Toys is making winning easier than ever to achieve. The PHOTOBAMA freestyle CONTEST is housed inside a specially crafted widget which can travel to any website. Using a simple embed code (much like a YouTube video), contestants can place the PHOTOBAMA widget into any blog, MySpace, or Friendster page. This way, participants can host the contest on their own sites, making it easy for their friends, family, and fans to vote for them up to once a day. Not only that, but everyone can upload an entry into the PHOTOBAMA widget wherever they find it on the web.
The PHOTOBAMA freestyle CONTEST will be accepting photo submissions through June 29th. Online voting begins on June 30th and closes on August 7th.
