The time for terrifying tin foil
Yes, it's the
2015 Tin Foil Hat (& other accoutrements) Competition!
|Save money - Buy your tin foil in bulk!|
For those not in the know, a gift of tin is traditional for a 10th wedding anniversary, hence the hi-jacking of the tin bit to coincide with our 10 years of blogging.
This compo shouldn't come as a surprise to you, what with the prompts, warnings and reminders that we've posted so far.
Oh, except dear Savvy, who has displayed an uncanny ability to remain completely oblivious:
This year, there is no theme, so it's "anything goes"!
The rules of the compo are (much like the last two compos) as follows:
To enter, you must fashion a tin foil hat and/or other bodily accoutrement (as we've considered allowing certain other accessories), take a photo of yourself wearing said chapeau/accessory (or, if you are camera-shy, put it on a melon or other head/body/limb-sized object) and send me the photo (email address is in our profile) along with a short technical description of the hat/accessory's functions, and/or a tale of fancy to go with it.
The winner will be chosen by any/all of myselves, and displayed on this here blog. There will also be a (yet to be determined, but you can guarantee it'll be cheap) prize, or prizes.
And "when do we have to get these photos sent in by?", I hear you ask? Why, no later than midnight (GMT) on Saturday 3rd October.
All the entries (unless they're crap, in which case they'll be in a skip/dumpster out back) will be displayed in a gallery here (don't worry, we won't be using the Infomaniac Art Gallery this year, after the complaints generated from last year's fiasco) from Sunday 4th October for you to peruse and vote for your favourite. The winner will be announced on Friday 9th October, coinciding with the 10th anniversary, to much trumpeting and fanfare!
For the curious and anyone new here, you can see the very first Tin Foil Hat Compo Gallery from 2010 here, and last year's here.
You have three whole weeks to fashion a tin foil treat of such magnificent proportions as to eclipse Ms Scarlet's planned winners-podium-crushing entry, so you'd better snap to it!
