NZFF December 2017 Screenshot Competition

The competition is now open!
NOTE: We now have TWO VOTES (one in each of TWO POLLS):

1) Visual Appeal: the winner gets their image displayed as a banner for the following month.
2) Relevance to the Theme: the winner gets the sponsored prize and sets the theme for the next screencomp.

The two votes can go to the same entry or to different ones.



The December theme, chosen by SeanTK, winner of the October (theme) competition is:
"Floats or Skis"

An *easy one* this time! It's the run-up to Christmas - which can mean different things, depending on where you live: skis for the northern hemisphere, but floats for midsummer fun in the southern hemisphere. If you have any theme-related queries, send SeanTK a PM!

As it's the last competition of 2017, we should remember all the sponsors that have so generously supported us throughout the year. These include:
A2A, Alabeo, Flight1, Flysimware, Carenado, Milviz, JustFlight and Captain Sim.
They have all been willing, friendly and helpful. Many thanks.

ImageThis month's competition is kindly sponsored by Flysimware and the winner will receive a download of their choice from their excellent product line.

SCHEDULE
Images can be submitted up until midnight Sunday 31st December.
Images can be edited up until 11pm Thursday 31st December.
Voting runs from Monday 1st January up until midnight Friday 5th January.



Please read the rules below: if you have any queries, please PM Comp Admin for clarification **before posting your entry**.

    ELIGIBILITY
  1. Entry (and voting) for the competition is open to all registered NZFF members.

    THE SCREENSHOT
  2. The screenshot image must consist of a screen captured from a flight simulator program (FS2004, FSX, P3D, X-plane, Aerofly, DCS/IL-2, War Thunder etc.).
  3. Some editing is allowed: additional images can be added (either real or other screenshots), but the main component of the image should always be from a flight sim.

    IMAGE FORMAT
  4. The images can be jpg or png and must be EXACTLY 1280px wide (any depth).
  5. Though "visual appeal" is all about the complete screenshot image, bear in mind that (if it wins that poll), the final banner crops to around 1200px * 380px (max) - which is quite a narrow letter-box shape - so try to compose your shot so as not to lose areas of high interest.
  6. No frames or text on the image.
  7. Keep the original uncompressed/high resolution version (BMP or TIFF) saved on your PC - admin may request it from you at the end of the month to convert into a site banner!
  8. DCS users may want to look at these tips.

    SUBMITTING AN ENTRY
  9. Please post all screenshot/entries here - in this topic.
  10. Only one entry/single image per member is allowed.
  11. Images can changed any time up until 1 hour before the closing time: use the "edit" button at the top of the original post, delete the old image link and replace it with the new one.
  12. If possible, please add details of the aircraft depicted and general scenery/location information.

    VOTING
  13. After the competition entry deadline, all registered NZFF members may cast TWO votes: one for visual appeal and one for relevance to the theme.
    The two votes can both go to the same entry or to different ones - but please vote in BOTH polls.
  14. Entrants may not vote on their own screenshots (!).
  15. Voting runs for five days after the entry deadline.
  16. The winner in the "relevance" poll receives the prize from the designated sponsor and gets to suggest a theme for the next screencomp.
  17. The winner in the "visual appeal" poll will have a cropped version of their image posted as the NZFF banner for the following month.



That's it, folks - get snapping!

The unique Avro Anson floatplane, used by Durban-based 35 Sqn SAAF for training crews in waterhandling before they graduated to Sunderlands. This crew has managed to reach Cape Town, right at its maximum range. :blink:

'Propliner' is actually short for 'Proper airliner, with big rumbly radials'

An LC-130 on the ramp at NZCH , looking forward to an almost 4,000k , 7 hour flight to Antarctica.
The old girl is sporting some of the largest skis on any aircraft. It's ironic that these Hercs are departing NZCH on a daily basis at the moment in 30+c (some days ) and arrive at the coldest place in the southern hemisphere. This particular aircraft is a regular here during the ice season .... 31096 "city of christchurch NZ " . The LC's tend to use the callsign "skier "

This De Havilland Canada DHC3 "Otter" was the first single engine aircraft to fly non-stop across the continent of Antarctica from South Ice Base to Scott Base, crossing the South Pole, a distance of some 1,430 miles in almost exactly eleven hours. 6./7. January 1958.

Great to see some "skis" appearing. It was beginning to look like we'd be deluged with "floats"!!!

Floats or skis? That's the question....

Not sure about the correct equipment for the aircraft, but I suspect ice skates for the passengers may be in order! Great shot - as usual!

Hmm when I made the shot it would've been the first Beaver in the comp, but Dani beat me to it ;)

Updated my old Carenado C185 to P3Dv4, so gave it a test flight over the Marlborough Sounds, near Picton ...
