Congrats to all! I’ll be in touch shortly with your prize information.
At Natural Designs in Scrapbooking (NDISB), we’ve come up with a cool internet digital scrapping game that mirrors the excitement of the TV reality show “The Amazing Race.” Teams of two will traverse the digital scrapbooking world, site by site, completing challenges and collecting prizes along the way. Everyone who completes the week’s challenges in the allotted time frame will move on to the next week, where they can collect even MORE prizes! And at the end of the race, everyone who has traveled around the digital scrapbooking world and completed each and every challenge will be entered into a drawing for the GRAND prize! Find yourself a partner and get ready to race in ADSR7! REGISTRATION: Team registration begins on Friday, April 20, 2012. The deadline to register is midnight Pacific Standard Time Thursday, May 3, 2012. So the first thing you have to do is find yourself a partner! Once you’ve done that, please send ONE email per team to admin at ndisb dot com with the following required information:
- Your Team Name:
- Racer 1 Name: Racer 1 Email: Racer 1 NDISB Forum Display name*:
- Racer 2 Name: Racer 2 Email: Racer 2 NDISB Forum Display name*:
*Participation in the Amazing Digi Scrapping Race requires registration in the Natural Designs Forums. Our forum uses a double verification registration to minimize spam. After you register, you will still need to be verified by a real live person to make sure that you are not a spammer. We generally get to this once a day, so please be patient.
SEASON 7 RULES:
OFFICIAL GALLERY: The official ADSR7 Gallery is a gallery within the NDISB Gallery. Each challenge will have its own sub-gallery at NDISB. The Challenge Galleries will be titled ADSR7.1, ADSR7.2, etc., to correspond with the challenge number. You will upload your challenge layouts to the corresponding challenge gallery. By default, they will also show in your member profile. You may also upload any other layouts you wish directly to albums that you create in the Members Gallery.
GRAND PRIZE: We will have a Grand Prize winning team as well as two runners up. The Grand Prize pool will be split with 50% going to the Grand Prize team and 25% each to the two runners up teams. All teams completing all ADSR7 challenges by the deadline will be eligible for the Grand Prize drawing. NDISB Designers and NDISB Creative Team members, as well as their teammates, are not eligible for the Grand Prize drawing.
THE CHALLENGES: There will be two challenges each week over the course of four and weeks for a total of 8 challenges.
FIRST CHALLENGE: The first challenge will be posted on Sunday, May 6, 2012. A link to the challenge will be posted on the ADSR page at NDISB as soon as it is received by the Admin. Each participating site will host a single challenge, but the rotation, dates and challenges are a secret until they are officially posted.
SUBSEQUENT CHALLENGES: Challenge Two will be posted on Wednesday, May 9. Subsequent challenges will be posted by midnight Pacific Standard Time each following Sunday and Wednesday. Both weekly challenges must be uploaded to the Natural Designs ADSR7 Gallery by midnight Eastern Standard Time the following Sunday to qualify to continue in the Race. Each participating site will host a single challenge, but the rotation, dates and challenges are a secret until they are officially posted. The links to the challenges will be posted at NDISB as soon as possible. You can also “stalk” the known sites and keep your eyes peeled for challenges before they are posted at NDISB. Challenge sites will be posted on the ADSR page at NDISB.
QUALIFICATION: A challenge is considered complete when:
- The challenge(s) have been completed according to the challenge rules,
- The challenge(s) are uploaded to the appropriate NDISB ADSR7 gallery subcategory, and
- Each racer has posted a link to their official layout in this forum. Each team will have their own thread, based on their team number. As you post your layouts to the NDISB Gallery, please post a new reply in your thread with the link to those galleries. And each partner may post to the thread as they post their layout. BUT – BOTH LAYOUTS NEED TO BE UPLOADED BEFORE THE DEADLINE! To eliminate confusion, we will post a clock on the ADSR page of NDISB with the current time in New York.
Everyone who has completed Week One will qualify to continue racing during Week Two, and the fun begins all over again. THERE IS NO JUDGING, AND THE ONLY WAY TO BE ELIMINATED IS TO FAIL TO COMPLETE THE WEEK’S CHALLENGES.
CHALLENGE VERIFICATION AND CLARIFICATION: Each challenge layout will be verified for completion by NDISB, or the site that issues the challenge. Uploaded layouts may not be verified until the Saturday or Sunday of the deadline weekend no matter when uploaded to NDISB. If verification is not completed until the deadline Sunday, and a layout needs to be modified to meet the guidelines of the challenge, an extension to midnight Eastern Standard Time on Monday will be offered to modify the layout to meet the challenge guidelines. Grand Prize eligibility will be maintained if the correctly modified layout is submitted prior to the extension deadline. Requests for challenge clarification should be made to the site that issues the challenge, not to NDISB. Any requests for clarification received by NDISB will be forwarded to the issuing site.
CHALLENGE PRIZES: Each time you complete a challenge you will receive a prize from the host site. You may receive a direct link for the prize, or you may receive a coupon code. Prizes and delivery of said prizes are at the discretion of the site host only. The Race Host has no control over what the prizes will be or how the site host will choose to deliver them. You will never be required to sign up for newsletters, or purchase anything in order to participate in the Race. You may, however, be required to register in a site’s store in order to redeem a coupon. There will be a hidden forum for posting of prize codes, download links, etc. When you register, you will need to send your NDISB Forum Display name so we can add you to the hidden forum.
CONTINUING ON SOLO: If for some reason during the course of the Race your teammate cannot continue, you have two options:
- Continue the race solo, completing the challenges alone and collecting the weekly prizes, but you are then ineligible for the Grand Prize drawing, or
- Find another racer who has also been displaced, but has not yet been disqualified. In this way, you are both still eligible for the Grand Prize drawing. For example, Team A has player 1 drop out due to unexpected illness and Team B has player 2 drop out due to computer hard drive crash. The remaining players from Teams A and B can form Team C and continue to race and be fully eligible.
So are you ready? If so, get those applications to me starting Friday, April 20. The deadline to register is midnight Pacific Standard Time Thursday, May 3, 2012. Then start toning up and working on your endurance…you’re going to need all the scrapping strength and mojo you can get if you want to win!
