Not that I really care to enter this contest, but while on the subject of "metal" pints, does anyone know the archival properties of these kind of prints? They have a good look, I'll assume they are actually metal backing and not metal-ish polymer, or am I wrong? Either way, I'm curious as to how these are from an archival perspective.

From their FAQ: under normal indoor viewing conditions (not under direct sunlight), Vivid Metals have a Standard Archival Value of 100+ years.

Thanks. I suppose it's ultimately difficult to know the true archival capability of stuff, as it's relatively new technology, and only lab tests have been conducted on determining such things. The only two mediums I know that have actually proven themselves over the course of time unfortunately no longer exist. They were Kodak Dye-Transfer prints, and Cibachrome/Ilfochrome. Of the two, I wish Cibachrome/Ilfochrome would be re-introduce into the market.

I always avoid these contests that fish for a lot of unpaid photography to use for their own needs. Ok, sure, one winner gets $500 worth of prints but I bet their lawyer was paid much more to write the lengthy terms and conditions ( fine print ) for entering. For their cost of a number of prints they get free promotional photos to use and free publicity on this website.
