NOTE: NON SPONSORING companies can participate but cannot use their logo (or trademark) as part of the pun, they may however pun their name or motto. Sponsors will have their LOGO (or trademark) included and sponsors contributing $500 and over may choose to have a PUN or an ad photographed on a location of their choice within an hour drive of Greater Victoria, as per availability of photographer Sept 05 and Oct 30 2011. All photo participants must supply their own models and props and if a sponsor chooses a location, make the appropriate arrangements to use the location and arrange the model(s).
ONLY CORPORATE SPONSORS may submit a photo or graphics for their ad, created by their own photographer or artist(s) and are not eligible for the competition even if they submit a pun ad, (a pun ad will get more notice and attention). Corporate sponsors will be given space according to their sponsorship level and the ability to submit any commercial ad they design and have reprint permission for.
