4th Annual SP/SPWC PUMPKIN CARVING/DESIGN CONTEST

Unread postby Susanna » Thu 06 Oct, 2011 11:33 am

Pumpkin Carving Contest

Contest starts October 7, 2011
Contest ends November 1, 2011

Rules/Guidelines

This contest is open to all World Crew members aged 13 and older.

Get a pumpkin and decorate it with something relating to Sick Puppies. Designs can be drawn, carved, painted, etc.

Offensive and/or inappropriate designs will not be considered.

You CANNOT use computer graphics ... all designs MUST be done by hand.

Categories of Submission

There will be 3 categories for this contest:

Category #1
Pumpkins that have been pierced/carved.

Category #2
Pumpkins that contain drawings/paintings only.

Category #3 (SPWC kids decorating category)
Pumpkins that contain drawings/paintings (ONLY open to Sick Puppies fans who are 12 years or younger; have your parent sign up and enter you)


Method of submission

Take a photograph of your design(s) and upload the photo(s) to Photobucket, TinyPic or a similar site. Send the URLs to SPWC.Contest.Team@gmail.com along with your username, your real name, mailing address and date of birth. Please also specify in the email whether your submissions are pierced/carved, drawn, or are from Sick Puppies fans 12 years old and younger.

Everyone who enters will receive 25 points for each submission. You can submit up to 3 designs; they can be a combination of categories.

You will receive an extra 25 points if you also take a picture of the pumpkin on your doorstep on Halloween (we will require the picture to include a costumed individual to prove it was taken on Halloween..and for our amusement :wink: ).

If you do choose to get these 25 bonus points, simply send a link to the picture before November 5, 2010 to SPWC.Contest.Team@gmail.com and the points will be added to your grand total.

Voting

All submissions will be put up for a vote on Sick Puppies' official Tumblr and Facebook pages within 1 week of the contest end. Please DO NOT reveal which submission is your own so the voting process can be as fair as possible.

Prize

Prizes will be given in EACH category.

For categories #1 and #2, prizes will be given to both the best carved pumpkin AND the best drawn pumpkin, as decided by your votes. Winners will each receive a Sick Puppies Prize (may include a CD single, tshirt, stage-used drumsticks, etc. - it's a surprise!), as well as 100 points.

For category #3 (younger fans decorating category), the winner will receive an autographed Sick Puppies item.

Please note that if there aren't enough entrants for one of the categories (we require AT LEAST five entrants per category), both categories will be merged and one prize will be given. To clarify, if we only receive two drawings (for example), the entries will be merged with the carved category and only one prize will be awarded.

Sick Puppies, their management and World Crew have the rights to all photos to use on websites and publications without any further credit or payment promised.

I am hoping that I get to actually carve my pumpkin after class tonight. It's not as if my pumpkin has been sitting upstairs on display for the past 3 weeks lol. Things have been just crazy/hectice lately with school and hoping to get a full time subbing position, plus subbing and another job. I'm sure you all know about that though.
