Geeky sandcastle competition...

The folk at Engadget are organising a virtual sandcastle competition. It's virtual in that it can occur on any beach, at any time - all you need to do is create a sand-sculpture of a gadget, take a photo and send in it to them.

Maybe not with a sand camera-phone though...

The rules are simple enough:
  • No Photoshops (duh)
  • Big minus points for iPods—they just too easy! (Ok, ok, you can do it well, then do it really well!)
  • Bonus points go to specific devices (i.e. do a Panasonic Toughbook, and not just a generic laptop-shaped thing)
  • Email your entries (try to send at least two pictures) to engadget att gmail dott com with the subject line “Summertime Sand Sculpture Contest”
  • Deadline for submissions is 11:59PM, Sunday July 12. Don’t say we didn’t give you enough weekend hours!
  • Grand prize winner gets their sculpture featured on the site, and a little something summery-special! Like, say, an Oakley Thump?
Pity I'm not getting to a beach in the next few days. Unless they've hidden any in the 'Dam this summer.

    How long is a photograph? According to my back of the envelope calculations, each of these images is about 4.5 miles long. That's roughly how far…
