    March 2016 Competition: A pen for an arthritis sufferer.

    The competition for May has been decided and will be A pen or pencil designed for an arthritis sufferer. The competition will officially start on the 1st. of March 2016 and end on 31st. March 2016 which means I must have your photos before midnight on the 31st. March 2016. If I get them even 1 minute into April 1st. 2016 the joke will be on you as your entry will not be included in the competition.

    For newbies the usual rule is that you must have made 25 posts by the time you enter the competition, it is easily achievable, just ask a few questions and you will be up there before you know it, get on with the competition in the mean time.

    1. You must have made 25 posts by the time you enter the competition.
    2. You may enter 1 pen or pencil into the competition and it must be your own work.
    3. Your photographs must be taken on a clean piece of white plain paper which does not have a texture or creases, photocopy paper is ideal.
    4. You must not use any props in the photographs.
    5. Your photographs must show the pen in a horizontal position as shown below.
    6. Your images must be 800 pixels wide.
    7. I must have your final photographs before midnight on the 31st. March 2016


    Example photographs for orientation have been added.

    If you PM me your images to enter the competition and later make a better pen you can PM me the photos of the new pen and I will discard the original images, that way you can be sure that you are in the competition with your first pen and if you have time to make another which you think is better you can use that one as long as I have it before the deadline.

    Make sure that you keep a hi res photograph of your entry as the winner will also receive an Awards Certificate with an image of your pen. The Awards certificate is A4 and can be printed out, if you wish to use it on your craft stall, by the likes of snapmad.com or photobox.co.uk, snapmad.com would be the cheaper option if you spend 2.99 as the postage will be free, photo box will charge a minimum of 2.99 postage.

    I will tweak colour, density and white balance of your images, if you request it, when you PM them to me.

    If there are only 9 entries or less then there will only be 1 placing awarded as 1st. Place. If there are between 10 and 14 entries then a 2nd. place will be awarded. If there are 15 or more entries then a 3rd. place will be awarded.

    This competition will be sponsored by daveygee, who, if you don't know, is a member.

    Dave has offered
    A Voucher for 50.00 for 1st. Place
    A Voucher for 30.00 for 2nd. Place
    A Voucher for 20.00 for 3rd. Place

    These vouchers can be redeemed with daveygee and you can see they type of kits, blanks etc that Dave sells by looking at his eBay shop which is pitbull01uk

    If you win one of the places available, do not order from his site or you will have to pay for whatever you order, instead have a look at his site and make a note of the things you want to redeem your voucher value for and PM Dave with your list.

    If I have missed something out please let me know and I will add it.

    Well at least you have a couple of weeks extra time, enough for a dozen or so pens, you could even make them segmented if you really wanted or closed end, lots of ideas.

    I have been waiting for others to make a noise and say their child, grandchild, baby brother/sister, niece nephew etc would be able to join in, if I remember correctly there were only 4 signed up and two were yours.

    Leave it with me and I will see if I can gee up some more support, it's not forgotten just in the pipeline as I thought the summer holiday would be easier.
