    Default Get Yer Turntables Out For The Lads 2020

    This was VERY popular last time it was done but that's a few years ago now, YNWAN won it if I remember correctly.

    Anyway I thought it would be a good idea to run a new one as a lot has changed on AOS in the last few years. To all you analogue diehards who have pride in your vinyl spinners here's a chance to show it off and practice your photography skills.

    Rules are simple..............

    Post as many different decks as you want, all at once or spread out in between other postings.

    The images must be of your own personal turntable not a library image.

    The winning image will be judged on both the photographic skills of the owner and the way the image is presented.

    PRIZES are being offered for the best ones courtesy of The Vinyl Adventure.

    The thread will run until Christmas for allocation of prizes, winners will be chosen by Capt Daffteee and myself.

    Obviously I am not participating for a prize so am starting the thread off with one of my own below.

    BTW photobucket still works you just have to pay them money now, dropbox can be used to upload and store your images or if you struggle, email me the image itself and I will post it up.

    Prizes for the best pictures are as follows:

    Winner gets 100 worth of vinyl and or accessories of their choice off the TVA website

    2nd prize is 75 worth of vinyl or accessories

    3rd prize is 50 worth of vinyl or accessories

    Maybe at some point. I'm afraid they will be pretty poor.
