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.
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.
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.
