    Nifty Chicken has generously offered Six Month Golden Feather Memberships as prizes for this contest! Anyone remember Flat Stanley? Flat chicken sounded awful, so we have 2-D BYC.

    Print out the BYC Chicken, whose name is now Tudy (2-D, get it?) and cut it out and/or color it if you like. Take a photo Tudy plus yourself or a direct family member (child, spouse, sibling) within sight of a famous landmark or fun spot. Post the picture in a reply to this thread by September 9th and include details and information on the location. Once we've received all the entries our judges will choose the winners based on a variety of categories. The winner of each category will receive a 6 month BYC membership for themselves or a friend. Here's Tudy the pdf. should you computer reject the .gif file.

    Here are the category specific details:

    Best Tour of a City or Region:
    Take your BYC Chicken on a tour and let her have some fun. Come back and share your photo journal of the tour with us. Example: Take the BYC Chicken on a tour of Seattle! Include Safeco Field, the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, etc. Show the flavor of the area with your pictures.

    Farthest from Home:
    Using your location and Google Earth, we'll calculate how far away from your town the mascot traveled. Have a friend in Thailand? Email the logo and get a picture back! ***Note, BYC members need not be included in the picture for this category***

    Most Creative Picture:
    Self Explanatory. Be creative (and Safe!) and remember that this is a family forum.

    Favorite Picture:
    This is the one our judges just like the best.

    Judging this contest will be: myself, Miss_Jayne, Buff Hooligans, debiraymond, PurpleChicken, AngieChick, and maplesky7. Judges may enter, but won't vote for their own entry.

    If you want to enter a bunch of photos, post them as thumbnails so the pages load easier.

    After consulting with the judges, here is our evaluation disclaimer in the style of an NPR news quiz:

    Judging Disclaimer and Rules

    Please be sure that your photos were well thought out as my answers are not. Judges have final say, so PM to find out their personal preferences. Shamelessly posing Tudy with sunflowers, expired possums, or purple poultry is encouraged and par for the course.
    Enter as many times as you like, but sit on your hands every couple of days so someone else can have a chance to post.
    Photos that meet contest criteria will be considered first, all others will be adored, lauded, and praised; but may not win. They may be kept for future contests. Suggestions are welcome, simply email [email protected].

    I accidentally named the chicken: Tudy (as in 2-D).

    It made Nifty laugh.
