Default 2019 Bash Kitless Contest

2019 BASH - Kitless Contest

The Universal Contest Rules apply. You can find them and read them Here

Your kitless entry may be any style pen or pencil you wish to make.

There are no restrictions on tools or techniques or raw materials. Everything is allowed as long as you are the one doing the work.

You are encouraged to make as many of the parts for your entry as possible. However, you may use a commercially made clip if you hide the ring, or you may eliminate the clip or make one yourself. Roll Stoppers are an excellent alternative to clips and something you might want to consider.

You may also use commercial ink / lead system components (e.g. nibs, feeds, transmissions / mechanisms (twist or click), refills, converters, sacs, springs, pressure bars...). You may also use a slimline twist transmission. The use of brass (or other) tubes is allowed.

Nose cones, sections, couplers, finials and center bands from kits or sold separately by vendors are not allowed.

The barrels should be made from materials that have not been modified by an artist other than yourself.

You will judged by
1 - creativity
2 - scope of original work in making the parts
3 - looks, we all like a pretty pen!

To enter, send an email to kitlesspencontest@penturners.org
with
A) 3 pictures of your pen
B) A statement that clearly explains what YOU did to make the pen. Any special features should be explained to insure they don't get overlooked by the voters

Deadline for entry is 10:00 PM, February 20 (Mountain Time).

You may only make one entry.

Prizes (if any) will be announced later.

If you have any questions you may post them here or PM me.

Good Luck.
Prizes
First Place, Diamond Blanks from Mckenzie Pen Works $85.00 value and A PRESSURE POT SHELF FROM BeeAMaker
Second Place, $50 gift certificate from Rockler, and AAW membership from AAW $35 value
Third place, BOB from Karl 99 $50 value

Looks like I'm out again this year. No power in the shop. And won't be until Spring. I was really looking forward to making another kitless. Maybe next time.

Steve,

I sent you an email with a question about this contest.

One thing I need to know is the maximum picture size, in Kbytes, allowed in the contest entry.

Please respond to the email as there is another issue ..... mgrphillips@yahoo.com

Hey, Mal - no trying to disrupt someone else’s contest but if nothing else is stated I would expect Universal BASH Guidelines rule with 800x600 for the photo sizes.

Mal had a legitimate question about the contest and the question about the picture size was fair. Although the contest rules say universal bash guidelines apply, it took be a bit of time to find them! I did not feel as though he was disrupting this contest.
