Glock 2012 Calendar Contest

Glock 2012 Calendar Contest

I bring you news today of what may be the most difficult challenge in the world of photography since Rosie O'Donnell walked into a Glamour Shots. The Glock 2012 Calendar Contest is now underway. If you put a lot of stock in the old adage "pretty is as pretty does", you may consider the Glock a beautiful handgun. It is a utilitarian design, impeccably reliable, ingenious in its simplicity, and loved by many, but photogenic it is not.

Clearly, Gaston Glock did not set out to design a pretty handgun and the company has stuck with that philosophy. They have succumbed somewhat to the siren song of fashion and produced some OD green frames but by and large Glocks are black and pretty much all look alike other than in dimensions. As a result, producing an eye-catching photo of a Glock can be quite a challenge.


It can be done, however, as one of our forum members, BPSniper, proved in the accompanying photo. The trick is to tell a story. The contest guidelines provide a lot of leeway in telling your story should you decide to enter. You can show people using a Glock if you choose but be sure to adhere to all rules of safe gun handling.



The Glock 2012 Calendar Contest is underway now and ends at 11:59 p.m. on July 31st. Entrants may only submit one photo per person. Photos should be submitted via email to GLOCK@leaderenterprises.com and include the subject line, "GLOCK Calendar Photo." Photos will be judged based on emotional response and artistic merit. The photo must be sent as a .JPG file and be at least 300 dpi in size. There will only be one photo selected for inclusion in the calendar. The winner will receive a prize pack of GLOCK-branded merchandise, as well as have their photo appear in the calendar.
