In addition to the Universal Contest Rules, https://www.penturners.org/threads/universal-contest-rules.133052/
the following rules apply:

Blank Material

-Your blank material must be wood. No plastics, no composites, no metal, no casting, no mixed wood and plastics, nor any material other than wood is allowed.

-No embellishments to the blank are allowed. This means, for example, no inlay, onlay, overlay, stickers, oops bands, CNC, laser art, segmenting, lamination, celtic knots, burning, engraving, or carving is allowed and will cause disqualification.

-Stabilized wood is allowed.

-Dyes, stains, pigmentation, paints, or any other colorants are not allowed.

Pen kit/component hardware

-Any commercially available kit/component hardware may be used, whether ballpoint, fountain, or rollerball.

-No modification to the kit/component hardware is allowed. You must use all parts of the stock kit/component set.

-Kitless pens are not allowed.

Photographs

You may submit up To 3 photos of your 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 pretty wood blank as a prop.

-No other props are allowed.

-Use a single-colored, plain background. The color and intensity of the background affects 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.

Finally! I was out of the country all of May June and July and now it to hot in Houston for me to set up my pan making stuff. I made a pen just a couple of days before I left and even took the pictures in anticipation of the Summer Extravaganza!

Darn! Now looks like I have no choice but to pick up your gauntlet Sam! ⚔ 😂
Life getting in the way I haven't turned much this year... 🤔 now if I could remember where the stash of special blanks is... I guess I have a week to find it... well for sure it ain't gonna be snakewood, that would take way too long without overheating it 😅
