Slimline Extravaganza Pen Contest

-The Universal Contest Rules apply
http://www.penturners.org/forum/f70/universal-contest-rules-133052/

Extravaganza - a literary or musical work marked by extreme freedom of style and structure and usually by elements of burlesque or parody.

2 : A lavish or spectacular show (of your pen)

3 : Something extravagant.

The rules have been written: See Above.

Your Slim Line Pen must meet one or all of the above descriptions, as Judged by our IAP Members.

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.

-Consider a photograph size of 800 x 600 as ideal. The contest chair reserves the right to resize photographs or slightly crop them to achieve a consistent image size.

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

-You may use a small off-cut of your Slimline material blank as a prop.

-No other props are allowed.

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

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

To Enter

Submit your entry by email to: handcraftedpens2012@gmail.com and include the following with your entry:

-Name, IAP Username, email address,
-the name of the project (Description)
-the two pictures required.

Cliff, sorry, I am not seeing what you are missing.

Maybe this will help, take a $5.00 pen kit make it look like a $5,000.00 pen with $XX.XX embellishments.

Your profile picture if it was a slimline would be an excellent example. Be creative in thought and design.

OK, you must use a Slimline kit., or as long as it has a slimline kit components.

Pens, not pointer or a Pin :) usually can write, make functional and useful.

If you add to many rules, then it is no FUN!

Looking forward to seeing it,.
I guess I'm still in it but after casing and turning my pen not sure its my best work and not sure i want to enter something that wins by default if you know what I mean.
