Toy Collectors do a lot of shopping at toy shops all over the world. We thought it would be really cool to see all those great places where we buy our toys. Even better if it was in some sort of gallery for everyone to look at. So we decided to make one and to get it rolling, we are having a contest that will give out give out cash prizes for the best photo of a toy shop or toy shop display. Anyone can enter for a chance to win a $25, $50 or $100 cash prize to spend in your winning shop.
From now until December 15th, we will be taking submissions by email of images you have taken of a shop, store, warehouse or garage that you go to buy your toys. Send us a picture of a decked out store front, capture a shot of an especially good case display, get a shot of your favorite shop keeper or that ultra hard to find action figure on the shelf. Pretty much anything goes for what you can take pictures of as long as they sell toys. Creative and far out ideas win extra points with the judges. There are some guidelines you must follow to enter and qualify for one of the cash prizes.
