The contest opens on January 2nd, 2008 and closes at midnight Sunday, January 27th, 2008 eastern time zone.

The winner of this contest will be selected by an open vote to be held from Monday, January 28th, 2008 to midnight of Sunday, February 3rd, 2008 eastern time zone. The winner will be announced by the 2nd week of February.


1. All photos must be of Asian watches (Japanese, Russian or Chinese) brands, MODS also welcome!
Because of the nature of the prize, any watch that at least has an Asian movement will be allowed.

2. Absolutely no obscene material please. My 11 year old son (future WIS) loves to follow these watch contests; if the photo is not appropriate for him to see, then it is not appropriate for this contest.

3. All photos must be original and taken by the member who submits them.

4. Members can submit up to two photos.

5. Photos can not contain the name or signature of the

6. All photos will be resized and re-linked to my hosting service
to ensure anonymity (yeah, I'm a stinker)! :biggrin:

7. Keep your photo links active; after the winner is announced,
your link will be restored.

8. All entries must be submitted by midnight Saturday, January 26th, 2008 eastern time zone. Entries will be posted in numbered format in a super thread in the Japanese & Asian Watch Forum for voting within the week of Sunday, January 27th, 2008 to midnight of Saturday, February 2nd, 2008 eastern time zone when the polls will be locked.

9. The winner will be announced in the 2nd week of February 2008.

10. Photo Shop Restrictions, PLEASE READ!!!
This is a photo contest, not a Photo Shop competency competition!
All digital manipulation must be limited to correction of color, brightness and contrast, and perhaps the removal of a spec of dust found on the watch. No special effects will be allowed: ex. superimposing multiple exposures (layering), or any other alteration of the picture itself (other than basic color-hugh, brightness and contrast). WTF staff will have the final decision to disqualify any suspect entry.


1. Remember that the winning photo will be the NEW MASTHEAD for the forum hence pictures of current models will show your favorite brand keeping up with the times. Wrist shots are best avoided too in this instance.

2. Hands should if possible be shown at 10:10 - this ensures balance in the subject.

3. Artistically-orientated pictures are naturally welcome but remember that the size of the masthead is approximately 4 x 3 so you should endeavor to fill the frame with your watch or it will appear small when finally reduced.

Now breakout those cameras and tripods. Set up those Monsters, Russki tickers and Bill Yao MODS! Let's show the WTF community who the most creative WIS's are! Many thanks to Fred Amos for sponsoring this contest!


1. PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR PHOTOS BY PM ONLY to Knight Watchman marking the title of your PM "J & A PHOTO CONTEST ENTRY"

2. CLOSING DATE. Remember your entries must be in by midnight Sunday, January 27th, 2008 eastern time zone.
May the best photo win - Good Luck Everyone :thumbup1:​
