Contest to Win Candy Heart Puzzle Photo!

Filed under: Contest — lindsaybirmingham @ 12:36 pm

Candy Heart PuzzleAnnouncing the contest to kick off the start of my blog, I’m going to give away a canvas print of “Candy Heart Puzzle” to the first person who can find all 16 ‘fake’ hearts in the image.

To view the photo in order to hunt for the fake hearts, go to: http://www.gigapan.org/gigapans/43639/

To view the blog entry on the making of this image, go to: http://lindsaybirmingham.wordpress.com/2010/02/28/candy-heart-puzzle-making-of/

The rules are simple:

1. To submit and count as an entry, reply to this thread and this thread only.
2. Reply with the COLOR of the heart as well as the fake TEXT written on the heart. (Example: 1. Blue – “Text on Heart”)
3. Upon replying to this thread and entering the contest, you agree to have your name posted as the winner on my website(s).
4. Comments/Submissions for this thread open Monday, March 1st at 8 pm EST.

Good luck!

UPDATE 3/5/10: If no one correctly guesses all 16 altered hearts by this Sunday, I will post a HINT to help you along.

UPDATE 3/7/10: One week has past so I am now giving HINT #1 to help figure out the 16 altered candy hearts. I would like to confirm what some people might have suspected or wondered: All 16 altered hearts are unique, no text was changed to be the same on any two hearts. This means that all duplicate hearts are ‘original’ hearts. This makes is a bit easier, right?

UPDATE 6/9/10: We have a winner!! Christa Eastis figured out all 16 altered hearts! Congratulations Christa!! Please contact me about getting your canvas print to you!

  1. Awesome image! Very well done! How big is this image if printed at full size?

    Comment by Mike Newcomer — March 3, 2010 @ 10:56 pm

  2. Thanks Mike! The image is huge — it’s 24717×8170 pixels! For printing, it depends on what DPI of course. It can be printed at 10 feet by 3.3 feet with no enlargement. I have blown up a single image from my 5D Mark II to 30×40 inches easily, which is a 300% enlargement. Taking that into account, 300% enlargement of 42 stitched images in Candy Heart Puzzle would make it 30 feet wide!! Such is the advantage of a gigapan!

    Now, the real question though is, who is going to win the canvas print??

    The print the winner will receive is 4 feet long stretched over a 1 and a half inch thick stretcher board. It’s on display at the All Arts Market, one day left! (Check previous blog title “All Arts Market”.)
