Cheese Snowman Competition - CLOSED

OK, I suspect that like us, many people in the UK are snowed in? So we thought we should have a snowman competition... It’s really simple, the best one will win!!
Simply attach your snowman picture to this thread for a chance to be picked by our panel of Snow Man Experts.

As this competition is really designed for young people, we will offer a young persons prize courtesy of the AO club along with something for the adult helper(s). Any registered member can enter, the prize will be a free AO Premio Club account and a well deserved Beanie hat for the adult helper and a £25 cheque from AO for your child enabling them to spend it on anything they wish!

The winning image will be selected by our panel of Snowmen Experts (*cough the Mod team) The prize will be awarded for the best looking snowman but some thought will be given to the quality of the photo therefore making it a team effort. We will close the competition at sun down and shortly after we will pick a winner!

We will also be picking images where children are present in them to make sure a real child receives the prize. If you are not comfortable with showing an image of your child online, simply ask them to hide their face.

Now get to it and good luck!
(Remember is just about having fun, we are not looking for sculptures)

Ian

Re: Snowman Competition - Today Only!

On behalf of my four year old Jasmine I'm posting this.

As you can see, Jasmine only had help from one of her brothers (7 yr old)

Well full marks for effort though! Very detailed
I also cannot be in the running for two reasons:

(1) I am running the competition
(2) My kids were to lazy to finish it off, so me and the misses did!

As there are not many on line yet and the snow is heading North, perhaps unless anyone objects, we should roll this over till tomorrow!

Any objections from the previous Snowman Builders?

Re: Snowman Competition - Today Only!

No objections from Jasmine, I think she realises she isn't going to win and blames Dad for not helping.

Re: Snowman Competition - Today Only!

Lissa should really be posting this, as I had nothing to do with it, being at work today! Anyway, here is Jamie and Jayleigh's attempt (with a little help from Lissa!)

Re: Snowman Competition - Today Only!

I don't suppose that I'm in any position to, seeing as though I cheated, but I STRONGLY object, my effort is the clear winner and I should be rightly crowned this evening!!!
