Lensbaby Creative Aperture Contest
Feeling creative? Lensbaby hopes so. They're looking for a new design to be included in their Creative Aperture kit, and they're calling on you to create it.
If you're not familiar with the Creative Aperture Kit it's a pretty slick setup for DIY effects. The kit comes with a pair of premade apertures - a heart and a star - and several blank discs for you to customize. The effect of a custom aperture can be obvious or subtle, depending on your style.
Lensbaby is currently accepting photographs from users displaying their favorite custom apertures. You can submit up to two photographs directly through the Lensbaby website.
The grand prize winner will have their photograph featured on packaging for the new Creative Aperture kit with full credit given, a framed version of their photo from Plywork, and the custom aperture will be featured in the new kit. The four runners up will also have their aperture designs mass produced and get a free kit.
