Last Day for Steampunk Photographic Submissions on Koinup



As stated in New World Notes, ( http://nwn.blogs.com/nwn/2008/10/two-days-left-f.html ), October 16th is the deadline for submissions to Koinup's "Steampunk Contest", which as you can see, has a concentration on Steampunk photography.

For further information on how to participate, please turn to the contest rules, located at:

[Interstingly, this piece has a link to "Steampunk sims in Second Life"... I will give them kudos for including Rivet Town, Steelhead, and Fair Chang Steam Isle, but...

1) I never really considered Caledon Victoria City to be the best representation of Steampunk in Caledon. I would have thought that Caledon SteamSkyCity or Glamorgan would have been more appropriate representations of its Steampunk venues.

2) Apparently Koinup forgort about the largest Steampunk sim in SL.. New Babbage! I'll restrain from pithy comments, but this is a pretty grevious oversight on the part of the person doing the research. To read this piece, please turn to...

Seems they noted the omission and added two sims from Babbage to make up for it :-)

Indeed they did... Spoke with Mr. Koinup, and I gather they are attempting to expand their Steampunk and Neo-Victorian connections within Koinup. Will be intersting to see how it develops.
