Spyderco 12-Month Calendar Contest

Postby Joyce Laituri » Thu May 27, 2010 9:41 am

[CENTER]The Contest[/CENTER]
I am convinced you all are psychic in some way. Last March a thread bloomed on this forum suggesting we make a 12-month wall calendar. Weeks before that thread went up, Sal & Company talked about, and committed to, a catalog project for 2011. It was also decided we wouldn’t announce it until summertime. So! Summer officially kicks off next week and here are the contest details.

The 2011 Spyderco calendar will be a 12-month wall calendar of images created by YOU. Photograph, draw, paint, photoshop, we’re looking for anything extraordinary.

[CENTER]The Prizes:[/CENTER]
We’ll choose a total of 13 images, one image for each calendar month and one grand prize ‘Best of the Best’ winner to be used as the calendar’s cover image.

Want to know what you’re playing for? The artist of an image chosen to represent a month receives a C135GP Fred Perrin PPT CLIPIT Folder. The cover winner gets a FB25PSBK Spyderco Warrior Fixed Blade with a Warrior history book written by Michael Janich and autographed by Sal and Eric Glesser and Michael Janich.


[CENTER]The Rules:[/CENTER]
A. One image submission per person. Entering multiple submissions will invalidate all of your submissions so choose your one pick carefully.

B. Image must include a Spyderco product(s). Act on your creativity. Your submission can be seasonal, retro, traditional, artistic, black and white or color, comedic or serious. Set your imagination loose. Please only family friendly, G-rated and tasteful submissions. If it’s salacious, offensive or anything the Disney Channel would reject, so will we. Be sure to include the model name in the image.

C. Images should be sized to fit our postable image parameters and posted in this thread. If your image is chosen a winner, it must be usable for printing in a high resolution 300dpi format. Please save a copy of your art until the contest is completed.

D. Winning images become exclusive property of Spyderco Inc. Creator of image grants unencumbered, free usage and printing use solely to Spyderco Inc.

E. Contest ends on Wednesday June 30th (0900MST). The final 13 winners will be chosen by the entire Spyderco Crew at a company-wide meeting.


Calendars will be available this fall through the Spyderco Factory Outlet Store.

*Spyderco Employees and family members of employees are not eligible.

Wow--I'm excited--the forum picked up a few really gifted photographers this year, I expect the competition to be quite stiff!

Dr. Snubnose: it is a good thing that 1) you don't need any more knives and 2) that you have over abundance of skills in areas other than photography!

Quick question to see if I understand right.

Can we have Multiple spyderco's in the pic? Also can they be discontinued models?

JW as I have a few ideas ;)

Be sure to include the model name in the image.
As text overlay, or just with the image?

You might be right about the cover, Doc. But judging from that pic, perhaps you should have someone else snap the shot. Think of yourself as Hef, providing the "talent". LOL

Yes, please post your image here in this thread but keep a (high res) file of it yourself until the contest is over. If you win, we will contact you for a high resolution file suitable for printing.

Your artwork can include (available or discontinued) single knives, multiple knives, Spyderco bugs anything Spyderco. :spyder:

Please include the name of the knife/knives somewhere in your post either in the image or below the image. This helps anyone looking at it know which model it is and model name and number will be included in the printed calendar.

Thanks for playing and we're looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Joyce :)

Oooooh I am excited !!!! :p But the weather is really cr@p in Sydney at the moment. I hope it fines up soon because I'd love to offer some Australian flavour to this competition.

Let's see if I can raid my collection for some nice examples. Probably non-users would be better eh ;)
