Adonis Index Transformation Contest 4

The 4th Adonis Index Transformation Contest (AT4) starts Wednesday Jan 19th 2011, ends April 13th 2011 midnight EST.

How to Enter the Transformation Contest:


Required Before Pictures with your shirt off from waist up:

Front – Facing Camera arms at your side

Side – Turn 90 degrees from the camera arms at your side

Back – Facing away from the camera

Newspaper – Take another “front’ picture holding the current days newspaper in your hand

Newspaper close up – Take a close up of the front page of the newspaper with the date clearly visible






Create a folder on your computer and store all of this information in it as your “BEFORE” folder. Name each picture file as follows: firstname_lastname_before_pose…Example: JohnBarbanBeforeBACK.

This makes it much easier for me to find the files when you send them in April.

To enter the competition simply take the required pictures and measurements as outlined above and store them on your computer as your ‘before’ file. On April 13th take the same pictures as your ‘After” file.

Emailing me both files along with a 250 word essay about your transformation experience before midnight April 13th 2011 counts as your official entry.

So for now you just need to take your official before pictures and measurements and store them on your computer this Wednesday.

Prize money for AT4 is as follows:

1st place – $500
2nd place – $350
3rd place – $250
4-6 place – $200
