Just a reminder to work on your entries to the GeekDad contest! With the deadline looming a little more than 2 weeks from now, now is the time to get a-scribblin’! And as a special note for people who have already read the previous post, we’re sweetening the prizes!
The Challenge: Create parent-kid self portraits of yourselves as D&D characters. Each entry should consist of one or more parents with one or more kids, each individual drawing his or her own portrait. If the geeklets participating are too young to draw recognizable figures, scribbles are OK!
Media: Let’s stick with traditional media — crayons, paints, pencils, etc. No digital media, please. Drawings should be on a single sheet.
Entering: Scan your portraits and upload them to the GeekDad Flickr pool. If you want to add cute descriptions to the photo, even better. Please tag your photo "geekdadcontest3".
Judging Criteria: The GeekDads will vote on which ones we like. However, please note that any Jar Jars, Cylons and so on will be disqualified. Your drawing must show you and your kid(s) as D&D characters.
Deadline: Midnight, June 6th, 2008. Not coincidentally, the release date of the 4th Edition rules of Dungeons & Dragons!
Prizes: In the immortal words of the Kool-Aid Man, OOHHHHH YEAHH! We have some great prizes for you, courtesy of D&D publisher Wizards of the Coast.
1st prize: 4th Edition Player’s Handbook — Be one of the first to get in on the new edition.
2nd Prize: H1: Keep on the Shadowfell — A 96-page mega adventure for characters levels 1-3.
3rd Prize: D&D Miniatures Pack — The latest craze. Join the throng battling it out with these great minis!
Each of the three winners will also get a Shadowmoor theme deck — explore Wizards’ delightfully sinister expansion to Magic: The Gathering.
Good luck and thanks in advance to all participants! And a big thank-you to Wizards for donating our fabulous prizes.
