2017 Summer Extravaganza - Kitless Contest

The Universal Contest Rules apply.

Universal Rules

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 not use a slimline twist transmission. There are other contests for slimlines.

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, it should be something we would like to carry or have on our desk!

To enter, send an email to IAPKitlessContest@gmail.com with:
A) 3 pictures of your pen (Please size your pictures no bigger than 960x960)
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 August 27, 2017 10:00pm (Mountain Time).

You may only make one entry.

Prizes (if any) will be announced later.
Prizes
First - $50 Gift Certificate from George Robutacion for his Bits of Timber.
Second- Jr Series Abalone Blanks from penlover/ Signature Pen Supply
Third - Micro Mesh package from thebillofwrites


If you have any questions you may post them here, PM me or send me an email.

Good Luck.

10 days to go! Time to start working on your kitless creation. One entry has been submitted so far and it would be a shame to have it win by default...
