Default Pretty Wood Pen Contest Rules.

Default 2018 IAP BASH Pretty Wood Pen Contest
In addition to the Universal Contest Rules, the following rules apply:

Blank Material

-Your blank material must be wood. No plastics, no composites, no metal, no casting, no mixed wood and plastics, nor any material other than wood is allowed.

-No embellishments to the blank are allowed. This means, for example, no inlay, onlay, overlay, stickers, oops bands, CNC, laser art, segmenting, lamination, celtic knots, burning, engraving, or carving is allowed and will cause disqualification.

-Stabilized wood is allowed.

-Dyes, stains, pigmentation, paints, or any other colorants are not allowed.

Pen kit/component hardware

-Any commercially available kit/component hardware may be used, whether ballpoint, fountain, or rollerball.

-No modification to the kit/component hardware is allowed. You must use all parts of the stock kit/component set.

-Kitless pens are not allowed.

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. If you do not abide by this constraint, you will be asked to resubmit photographs or risk disqualification.

-Please submit photographs of maximum 800 x 600. You should hit this mark, and you are responsible for cropping and sizing your photographs. If you don't meet this requirement, you will be asked to resubmit photographs or risk disqualification.

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

-No other props are allowed.

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

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

To Enter

Submit your entry by email to: prettywoodpen@penturners.org and include the following with your entry:

-Name, Username, email address,
-the pretty wood you chose to use (please, no stories)
-the two pictures required.

I'm a little confused when you say... "One photograph must be clip up, nib to the left. The second photograph must be clip up, nib to the right."

Do you have an example we could see?

Thanks for organizing this!

They want to see both sides of the pen so that you are just not posting the good side of the blank. Some people will do this when the show a pen. They show the "A" side of the pen and the back side is drab.

Wow, just look at the prizes donated by generous members and vendors!

First - Norseman Drill bit set from Mark James $84
Second - gift certificate from Georges bit of Timber $50
Third - Ring neck pheasant blank set for jr gent from JohnU $35

I was a lucky recipient of a Norseman Drill set donated by Mark as a prize for a contest in last year's BASH. Those are fantastic drills!

I don't think George has a single piece of wood that doesn't qualify as a pretty wood!

A pheasant blank set from JohnU on a nicely turned Jr. Gent would be a perfect complement to your nicely turned PWP, wouldn't it?

WAIT, THERE'S MORE!

Two members have offered additional prizes for a random drawing among all entrants that don't finish in the top three.

One member who chooses to remain anonymous has donated a genuine Lou Metcalf pretty wood pen! How cool is that?

Member greenmtnguy has donated some pretty wood pen blanks and a shredded money blank.

Thank you Mark, George, John, Anonymous, and Alton for supporting the BASH and the PWP contest!

Ok need a judge's clarification

How "single colored" does the background need to be? I used a mostly single color slightly mottled background.

Cliff,

I think the focus should be on the pen, and sometimes mottled or multi-colored backgrounds interfere/compete with the pen.

I recognize that some cloth material as background looks mottled. Maybe I should have used the term "non-patterned."

I won't disqualify any entry for the background, but I will suggest considering a re-shoot if, in my judgement, it affects the presentation of the pen.

I use a variety of pillow cases for backgrounds of pens I photograph. The color I choose is intended to complement the pen, but stay muted and unobtrusive.
