Okay everyone, here it is; the latest Major Spoilers Contest!
The prize?Â This lovely limited edition Dark Knight 2 Statue from 2001.Â It’s a great representation of two of the characters from the Frank Miller series, and can be yours if you are willing to work for it.
So what do you have to do?
Take the jump and find out!
Okay, this contest is all about helping to promote Major Spoilers.
First, download and print out the following image:
It fits nicely on regular paper (8.5″ x 11″), however it looks really great on glossy photo paper (extra points).
Next, take the mini-poster and get your picture taken, holding the sign, with one of the following:
- The manager of your local comic book shop (the comic book shop must be in the background). Bonus points if the manager hangs the mini-poster in a prime location in the shop.
- Someone famous.Â We’re talking celebrities, comic creators and artists, Playboy Playmate, and so on. It has to be someone well known.Â Sorry, but the thespian who only does local theater in your small town doesn’t count.
- A really hot girl in a bikini – or for the female readers out there – a really hot guy in his swim trunks.Â Yes, it may sound sexist, but it’s summer time and we’re trying to make this contest as interesting as possible.
NOTE: You MUST ask permission to have your photo taken with one of the above people, and the Major Spoilers mini-poster must be viewable in the shot (do not cover anyone’s face).
Finally, send the image (800×600 pixels minimum – larger preferred) to firstname.lastname@example.org.Â Include your full name, mailing address, etc in the email.Â If you take your picture with the manager of your local comic book shop, please include the name and address of the comic shop as well as the manager’s name. The promotion works both ways, the shop promotes us, we’ll promote the comic shop.
The images will appear on the Major Spoilers site, hence the need to obtain permission first.
NO PHOTOSHOPPING ALLOWED! Please be honest in this contest. We are trying to promote the site in this contest and someone who Photoshops the image onto a photo does nothing to spread the word.
UPDATE:Â You CAN enter more than once – providing you are posing with someone different in each picture.Â I know of one person who is entering 5 times based on his visit to San Diego Comic Con
UPDATE #2:Â Want to see examples of the entries?Â Check Julian’s entries here.
All entries must be received by August 31, 2008 (plenty of time to get pics at a certain major comic convention coming up soon – nudge nudge wink wink).Â The winner will be selected randomly from all entries on September 2, 2008 during the Major Spoilers Podcast.
This contest is open to residents of North America only (sorry rest of the world, but shipping outside the U.S., Canada, and Mexico is really expensive for a prize of this size).
If you have any questions, just ask!Â Have fun with this contest, and hopefully you will win!
