Default Slimline Extravaganza Pen Contest

Universal Contest Rules

Extravaganza - a literary or musical work marked by extreme freedom of style and structure and usually by elements of burlesque or parody.

2 : A lavish or spectacular show (of your pen)

3 : Something extravagant.

The rules have been written: See Above.

Your Slim Line Pen must meet one or all of the above descriptions, as Judged by our IAP Members.

Photographs

-Two photographs are required for entry. One photograph must be clip up, nib to the left. The second photograph must be clip up, nib to the right. This gives a view of both sides of the pen.

-Consider a photograph size of 800 x 600 as ideal. The contest chair reserves the right to resize photographs or slightly crop them to achieve a consistent image size.

-You may use a commercially available, clear plastic pen stand as a prop.

-You may use a small off-cut of your Slimline material blank as a prop.

-No other props are allowed.

-Use a single-colored, plain background. The color and intensity of the background affect the highlights of your pen. The background should let your pen stand out, not interfere with it.

-No montages, watermarks, or any other identifying marks that might reveal the identity of the maker.

To Enter

Submit your entry by email to: handcraftedpens2012@gmail.com and include the following with your entry:

-Name, IAP Username, email address,
-the name of the project (Description)
-the two pictures required.

Do not post your entry in this thread

One entry per person

Please send a private message to HCPENS after you submit your entry to help ensure that your entry has been received.

Entries for SlimLine Extravaganza Contest will be accepted starting August 7, 2017, and ending August 25, 2017, at 11:59 p.m. Central.

Please post questions in this thread, by private message to HCPENS, or by email to handcraftedpens2012@gmail.com I appreciate your patience as you wait for a response. I have limited forum access during business hours.

Get busy, good luck, and let us see your SlimLine Extravaganza pen.

Prizes to be announced

Cliff, sorry, I am not seeing what you are missing.

Maybe this will help, take a $5.00 pen kit make it look like a $5,000.00 pen with $XX.XX embellishments.

Your profile picture if it was a slimline would be an excellent example. Be creative in thought and design.

Call me 210-306-1220

OK, you must use a Slimline kit., or as long as it has a slimline kit components.

Pens, not pointer or a Pin :) usually can write, make functional and useful.

If you add to many rules, then it is no FUN!
