Default 2018 Summer Extravaganza Kitless Contest

Here it is - your opportunity to show what you can do without a component set. No slimlines, no sierras, no cigars, no nothing that resembles a kit. Just a blank, an ink (or lead) delivery system and your creativity.

Show us your work on creating a writing instrument utilizing the least amount of pre-made parts possible.

In addition to the universal bash guidelines these are the contest rules.

The Rules

1, For this contest you can create any type of writing instrument, it just cannot be available in kit form.

2, You may make the writing instrument out of any material and using any tools at your disposal as long as they are operated by you.

3, The only ready made components you will be allowed to use are,
the clip and the ink or lead delivery system, ie. a refill for the roller ball, fountain pen feed assemblies including ink cartridge/ pump/ reservoir/ feed and nib. You must identify the purchased parts in your entry.

4, The work must be made by you and only you.

5, Only one entry per person. Your writing instrument may not have been entered in any of the other Bash contests. Take the best pictures you can because the quality of your pen will be based on what we can see. Keep your backgrounds and props simple so they do not distract from your pen.

6, A maximum of 3 photos will be allowed along with a brief description of your work. Photos should not exceed 960x960 in accordance with IAP attachment guidelines.

7, We will keep the entries anonymous through the use of entries emailed as outlined below.

8, The pen must not have been shown before August 1 2018 on IAP or any other site. If it is determined that it has been shown elsewhere it will be disqualified and any prize won will be forfeited. Do NOT post a photo of your entry ANYWHERE until the contest is over, the polls are finalized and the winners have been announced.

9, Finalists will be judged based on;

Originality of design
Workmanship - The Overall fit and finish. It should be flawless.
Use of material - Composition and originality.
Over all looks – We want the most beautiful pens.
Apparent writing comfort.- Does it look comfortable for writing.
Durability- How well does it look like it will hold up to use.

10, All entries will be posted at the same time following the contests deadline. This will give all entries the same time “in the spotlight”. They will be posted in the order I receive them.

11, A poll or polls will be posted, voted on by the membership. The number of polls will be determined by the number of entries to narrow down the submissions for final judging and a final poll will be used to determine the winners

Submissions:
Entries will be accepted starting Wednesday August 1st and all entries are due 11:59 pm MST. Sunday August 19th.

You must use this Email to submit your pens.
Please include your real name, address and IAP user name.
Kitless@penturners.org If you do not receive confirmation that I have received your entry within 24 hours, please PM me so we can figure out where your entry went!

The first poll will be posted on August 20th, poll will be posted and run for 72 hours. If more than 12 entries are received we will run a second poll after narrowing the choices.

Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third places.
first Diamond blanks $45 Mckenzie

Time is running out! At this point your chances of winning a prize are very good - but you have to enter in order to win anything.

Your time to enter the kitless contest is quickly slipping away! If you do not receive a confirmation email from me then you should PM me about your entry. Entries sent close to the deadline may not receive a confirmation until tomorrow morning.

Holy crap ..... Voting on this one is gonna be tough .. I just came from the voting thread and had to spend about 10 minutes just staring before I realized that I should close my mouth and breath normally ....

In my book, every single one of those pens is a freakin winner!
