Fluff in Nature Photo Contest! Official Rules and Information


Get out your cameras, grab that cute cloth diaper baby of yours and get into nature! It's time for the Fluff in Nature photo contest!

Fluff Fest is here and we here at Happily Domestic are so excited! To make this cloth diaper event a little more special I thought it would be fun to have a photo contest. My friend Vilate, from Nifty Nappy cloth diapers has kindly offered to sponsor this contest. There will even be 2 winners!!! Here are the official rules....

  • Only one picture can be submitted per household
  • All entries must be received no later than 8pm (MST) on August 20th 2011
  • Photos should be photo shoot quality, but not professionally taken (we want pictures taken by you!)
  • Must show Fluff, not just cute babies! (ANY CLOTH DIAPER BRAND/STYLE IS OKAY)
  • Please include your child's first name, age and your email address along with photo
  • Email all entries to FluffInNature@yahoo.com
  • Winners will be chosen by Vilate of Nifty Nappy Cloth Diapers and announced on this blog on August 31st.
  • All contest photos will be made into a fun cloth diaper slideshow and be posted on Happily Domestic as well as You Tube

Tips for great photos:

  • Take pictures in morning or afternoon light
  • Have an idea of what type of picture you want beforehand
  • Make sure baby is well rested
  • Edit your photos! Picnik and Google's Picasa are great free resources for picture editing and effects.
  • Avoid cluttered backgrounds- your focus should be on the baby not background images.
  • Be creative! Two of the 4 pictures I took of my son (above collage) have won cloth diaper photo contests. Sometimes thinking outside the box really pays off!

For those of you who enter this photo contest, you will also receive 2 extra entries into each Fluff Fest giveaway! (You must leave separate comments on each giveaway post saying "Entered photo contest #1" and "Entered photo contest #2".) You will also receive 2 more extra entries for blogging about this photo contest! (You must leave separate comments on each giveaway post saying "Blogged about photo contest #1" and "Blogged about photo contest #2".)

Okay, now for the fun stuff! want to know what you could win?

Sarah- no, but thanks for letting me know. :-)

Aughhh! So fun! I'm doing my daughters nine month pictures on Sunday and had plans to do one with our Nifty Nappy stash anyway. We'll definitely submit our favorite!! Thanks to everyone hosting/sponsoring this contest! :-)

Exactly what do you mean by "Photo Shoot Quality?"

As a side note, I didn't know Nifty Nappies still existed...?!

HappilyDomestic said...

Erin- Please don't be intimidated by this, it just means a "nice" picture. Something purposed out for the contest. We just basically didn't want to see a bunch of random shots with people's messes in the background.

Yes, Nifty Nappy's does still exist. She has done a cottage licence with her patterns. You can no longer purchase diapers from her site, but she still makes them and will be making the winning fluff for this contest! :-)

Good luck!

Sent mine tonight. :o) Had fun taking pics, hard to choose the best one! Looking forward to seeing the slideshow with everyone's pics.

Love this contest - so much fun shooting for it! Hard to narrow it down to one picture. Excited to see the other entries and the slideshow. I am confused about the additional entries for blogging about it etc? If I write a blogpost I can submit more than one picture or is that for a different giveaway? Thanks!
