100 Designers or Bust

As our current designers already know, I've officially issued out a challenge to all potential participants of our current contest, "Where No Man Has Gone Before". If we can recruit a total of 100 New Designers this time around, we will increase our prize money by US$1000!

This additional money doesn't go to the top 5, who already have very nice rewards, but to the other designers, whom we wish to appreciate for their efforts. As such, we came up with 5 totally spanking new prizes to give away (please note that if you are already a Top Five winner, you do not qualify for these awards)!:

  • Mr. Popular (card with the most views from start to end date of contest) US$200
  • Mr. Controversial (most commented card from start to end date of contest) US$200
  • Mr. Shotgun (most accepted designs in contest during submission period) US$200
  • Foldees Biased-Award-Nominated Favourites-Explanation-Exempt (or BANOFEE for short) US$200 x 2

In case you haven't figured it out yet, the last award goes to two cards of our choosing, which we will be exempt from explaining. We'll explain it just by saying this... these will be our two favourite cards that we believe should've won something. You may commence sending us nice flower emails of praise to right now :)

In the meantime, here are THREE EASY WAYS to help make sure your buddies enter our next contest.

  1. Get them to sign up as MEMBERS now! This will ensure that they get on our newsletter so we can pester them until they're forced to join our contest out of sheer exasperation.
  2. Invite them onto our Facebook EVENT list for WhereNoManHasGoneBefore - So we can send them constant updates and remind them when the contest due dates are over. Since they (and you as well) probably check this more than email, this is probably your best shot
  3. Tattoo "22nd March" into their skin while they're asleep, preferably somewhere easy to see, like their foreheads (unless they don't have bathroom mirrors or are horribly deformed). This will serve as a cryptic remind of what's to come. Better still if you do it in Klingon.

C'mon guys... we can DO IT!
