Prize Winners for Apple II Photo Contest
At last, the 14 photo entries for last month’s Retro Apple II Photo Contest have been judged, leaving us with a first prize winner for an Uthernet II, a second prize winner for free shipping on the same, and three honorable mentions.
To keep everything fair, the judge was someone who is not a part of the Apple II community, but who has a BFA degree and has a basic familiarity with the Apple II. Entries were judged based on composition, elements from the chosen time period, and overall retro feel.
Speaking personally, there were a lot of really good photos. I love looking at Apple II setups, as I’m sure a lot of other people in the community do. The idea for this contest came to me around January or so, and I’m glad that I brought it to execution and that the community made so many good photos for it.
What do you love most about using an Apple II? Probably that it’s an open system, will expand only to the limits of your imagination, and that it’s straightforward to understand and program. But be honest: you probably also love the retro feel of the machine: the curves, the glow of the CRT, the sounds of the Disk II, the rainbow Apple logo.
The theme of this contest is to recreate that vintage feel in a photo taken in 2015. Choose a decade: 70s, 80s, or 90s, and compose an Apple II setup that looks like it came straight from that decade. Attention to detail matters: we like CRT monitors or TV sets, cassette recorders, some Apple II books or magazines, stacks of floppies, a desk phone, maybe even some vintage posters or furniture.
We’re not asking for photos actually taken back then (but you can use them as inspiration!) but instead for a photo that looks like it’s from that time.
Submit a photo to the contest gallery and the best one will be selected for the prize of a new Uthernet II from A2RetroSystems.
