This is a brilliant idea.

I have three quite good ideas, I just don't have foggyest how to make them into adds...

Anybody have a spare copy of photoshop and care to give me a quick lesson?

We could collaborate if you wish? I'm at Leeds College of Art and Design doing a foundation year specializing in Graphics so feel like I should atleast have a go!

"Use images from the La Sportiva, Beal and Petzl websites. " . . . so, if you need a generic picture of a mountain to use as background, using one you took yourself isn't on??

How many times are people allowed to enter, btw?

Ta for setting this up - be interesting to see the results.
