Firetoys Photo Competition 2016

Firetoys 2016 photo competition is go! As in previous years, we’re giving away £250’s ($360's) worth of Firetoys vouchers to our overall winner. Unlike previous years we're also offering three prizes of £30 ($45) vouchers, one for each of the following categories: the best photographic skill, the best use of equipment/prop and the best aesthetic photo. 

Your picture can be of anything circus, juggling, aerial, fire spinning or object manipulation related. All you need to do to enter is email your photo to comp@firetoys.com. We will accept photos of any quality/resolution but the higher the better.

You MUST own the image or copyright to it or have permission from the copyright holder to enter the picture. You MUST also have permission from the people in the photo before you enter it in the competition.

You can enter as many photos as you like but please try to select your best few images rather than sending us hundreds of pictures.  

The closing date for this competition is midnight (GMT) on Sunday 15th May 2016 so you’ve got plenty of time to create an awesome snap if you don’t have one in your collection already.

Here's an example of one of the winners (Andrey Das) from one of our previous competitions: Andrey Das Fire Breathing

Terms and Conditions

2.The photo must be received by comp@firetoys.com by midnight (GMT) on 14th May 2016 to qualify.

3.You must own the submitted photo, copyright to it or have permission of the person who took the photo or owns the copyright in order to submit it to the competition.

4.You must have permission to submit the photo to this competition from the people in the photo.

5.Copyright of the photo will remain with the original owner.

6.By submitting a photo to this competition you agree to let Firetoys publish it on their website and social media pages, though full credit will be given. Should you want a website linked to the photo please include this information when you submit the photo.

7.Enhancements to the photograph by software such as Photoshop are allowed but obvious changes and enhancements by such software will be taken into consideration by the judges.

8.A shortlist will be compiled from all of the entries. The three prize winning photographs will be determined by a vote of selected Firetoys judges.

9.The overall and three runners up prizes will be given in the form of £250 and £30 Firetoys vouchers respectively (or $360 and $45 if the winners are from the USA). The winners will be given the choice of how they would like the vouchers split to a minimum value of £10 (or $10), for example, the £30 prize may be issued in the form of 1x £20 and 1x £10 vouchers.

10.Vouchers will be issued in the form of unique codes. Only one code can per used per order, though Firetoys will adjust voucher denominations if necessary and requested by the winner before the order is placed.

11.Vouchers can only be used once and no change will be given. For example, if you spend £8 of a £10 voucher you will lose the remaining £2. Firetoys will issue additional vouchers in denominations of £10 should more than this not be used in the order. For example, if you spend £8 using a £20 voucher we will issue another voucher for £10 if requested by the winner.

12.Only vouchers in denominations of £10 or $10 will be issued, for example, £10, £20, £30 etc.

13. Vouchers values quoted here include VAT so will be display as ex-VAT totals at the checkout. This will result in the full value quoted here being deducted from the grand total. For example, a £10 voucher will be displayed as a discount of £8.33 at the checkout but once VAT is applied to the sub-total this will mean you save £10 over all. (This does not affect US entrants.)

14. Should winners live outside the EU (with the exception of US customers) they will receive the ex-VAT discount but they will then have reduced import taxes when the parcel reaches customs in their country.
