Default Perfect Slimline Contest Rules

The under appreciated slimline can be beautiful and elegant when done properly. Many of us started with it but moved on to sexier models. We forget that less can be more. Let’s see what we can do with less. This contest is seeking the perfect slimline. What is the perfect slimline you ask? The perfect slimline will have:
• An aesthetically pleasing shape
• Exacting fit
• A flawless finish
• Exquisite matching of kit finish and blank
There is absolutely no reason to not participate in this contest. Remember less can be more- Inexpensive kit, no special tools required, all you need are the basic skills to turn a simple pen. Show us what you got.

In addition to the Universal Contest Guidelines, here are the rules for the Perfect Slimline Contest:
1. You must use a slimline or funline kit for this contest.
2. You must use a one piece wood or resin blank, (no segmenting).
3. There must not be any modifications to the kit.
4. Submit a single photo (maximum size 800 x 600 or 600 x 800) that details the overall pen and its fit and finish.
5. One entry per person
6. Winners will be determined by IAP membership voting.

Entries for The Perfect Slimline Contest will be accepted starting February 1, 2019, and must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. Eastern on February 14, 2019.

-Name, Username, email address, mailing address in case you win a prize

See photo for of some of my work.

I will submit this one that has no clip on it.

You can not submit that exact pen now. You can not show your entry anywhere on the world wide web before. It has to be a pen specific to the contest you are entering and will be seen as a group when the contest ends.

Thanks John ... I understand that now and have edited my post.
Also sent a different pen photo for entry in the contest but it was returned as un-deliverable by my server.

I really love the SlimLine kit as it is so versatile and lends itself to many different configurations.
Plus ... its is cheap ... LOL!

They may not be quite setup to take those early entries. Check back with them. Good luck.

If the center band is not used, is that considered a "modification?"

I think the email link issue has been resolved. So you should be able to send in entries now.
