Begining with Free Study challenge launched earlier today (Free Study 2011-04) and for every monthly Free Study challenge for the remainder of the year, we'll be offering a unique prize to all Blue Ribbon winners.

We've teamed up with HighKey Camera Straps to bring limited edition camera straps to the best of the best here at DPChallenge. In case you weren't paying attention -- there are only 9 of these straps up for grabs since we're announcing this on April 1st. That should give you an idea of how limited these are -- only 9 of them will be in existence.

In addition to the 9 remaining Free Study challenges, 3 more straps will be given away to the top 3 finishers for the Best Of 2011 challenge that will inevitably be announced next January. These straps will be unique to the Best Of 2011 challenge and each will have a uniquely colored ribbon indicating place.

A sample strap can be seen below, although the final product will differ slightly:

We hope you're as excited about this as we are! To answer some questions that you may be wondering:

- Ribbons will be shipped to winners ~30 days after results are posted and when a proper address is provided
- Voting patterns will be checked and double checked to ensure winners are deserving
- We will ship internationally, but are quite scared about how much shipping to Iceland costs
- We will not be selling camera straps inside of 2011 to further add to the allure of these straps, but may consider doing so in 2012

But what's the worst that this will do? It'll encourage us to take good photos... what't the harm in that?

Poor April Fools joke methinks :)

What would have been better would have been if Langdon said he had a change of heart about DPC and was gonna become more active on the forums, with apologies :D

Well, I suppose it is not a bad one , unlike the one back In 2004 (I think) were the scores in a challenge were all showing as very low , around 2 > 3 I think. A lot of people seemed to be a bit upset about that! :-)

Uhmm.... is it an April fool joke? I must admit that its a great idea but the "shipping to Iceland" scares them is a little.... fishy.
04/01/2011 11:07:45 AM · #18
It would work better if we received news more than once a year. This way its too obvious :-P
04/01/2011 11:09:05 AM · #19
great, good luck all - the best will win the 9 :D
04/01/2011 11:13:13 AM · #20
I like it much better than the mass dq emails that were sent out a couple of years ago. :)

Well, when you consider that Narwhals don't make the transit from the USA to Iceland very often, and charge accordingly, I think 1.gif Langdon is right to be concerned about shipping charges.

it would be kind of a sick april fools considering how much many if us have wanted something like this
04/01/2011 12:10:00 PM · #23
This is a nice idea. Thanks
