ScoopYourself Photo Contest 2013: We have our winners!

From April 1 to May 31, 2013, Odyssey fans were given a chance to participate in the fourth annual ScoopYourself contest to win a plethora of Adventures in Odyssey prizes―the most we've given away yet! All 27 entries were narrowed down by three judges, with overlapping favorites chosen as winners and honorable mentions.
 

 

What is ScoopYourself?
In each ScoopYourself challenge, visitors have the opportunity to incorporate themselves into a unique contest entry and be the most creative to win exciting prizes!

The Challenge
We wanted to see fans' Adventures in Odyssey collections. We wanted to find out who would come up with the most creative display of their Odyssey albums, books, videos, DVDs, action figures, T-shirts, and more!

Judging Entries
The quantity of items in fans' collections had no effect on the chances of winning. We were interested in the quality of entries submitted, regardless of how many Odyssey items contestants had. We were looking for the use of props, camera angles, and lighting to create the most creative display. We weren't looking for just simple displays of Odyssey items on a background. We were looking for entries that stood out as a cut above the rest, entries that went that extra mile. The ultimate ScoopYourself contestants.

Of course, a contest like this is very subjective, and our opinion may differ from yours. But that's okay. We enjoyed looking at every photo we received and are confident that you will too.

It was extremely difficult to judge the entries (it's difficult every year!). It was so much fun seeing the creativity expressed, much like years past. All three of our winners will be receiving free Adventures in Odyssey goodies (see right). In addition, we decided to give out even more awards than originally promised due to our delay in announcing our 2013 winners. Not only will our three winners receive some exciting Odyssey prizes, our five (yes, five!) honorable mentions will also receive a voucher to receive a free copy of Album 57: "A Call to Something More".

A big congratulations to our three winners and even our honorable mentions! Winners, be watching your email in the days ahead as we're excited to get your prizes out to you!

If we could, we'd give you all a prize for the effort you put into this contest. Thanks to everyone who entered! And now, our winners!
