The "IN CAPITALIST AMERICA" Contest

Postby rockpapercynic » Mon May 10, 2010 4:43 pm

Note: the contest is closed now, but I've got to give huge thanks to everyone who wrote. Your entries were fantastic!

WHY: Because I have really cool readers who are also writers.

WHO: Anyone with a forum account (if you don't have one, get cracking!) can enter.

WHAT: The best "IN CAPITALIST AMERICA..." pitch made in this thread gets made into a comic, and earns the winner $50 in store merch. Two Honourable Mentions win $10 each in free store merch too! There will also be unique forum signature prizes given to each of those three winners, and all entrants will get some of LENIN'S TEETH (he had many). There is an example pitch below.

WHEN: Submissions will only be accepted if posted before midnight EST on Monday, May 17th.

WHERE: Here, in this forum thread. ALL submissions MUST be placed in THIS forum thread to be considered valid.

HOW: Just post your pitch below. MAX THREE PITCHES PER PARTICIPANT. If you make extra accounts to make extra posts (we will check IPs) then you will be disqualified. If you make more than three pitches, we'll just remove them (we don't want you "blocking" other possible ideas that entrants could use). PLEASE INCLUDE ONLY ONE PITCH PER POST. Please don't repeat posts that have already been put up.

A panel of judges (yet to be determined; I will be one of them) made of me and Ray and Alex from Buttersafe, will assemble a shortlist and then determine the winners.

Thanks to metalmufin and Arzades for inspiring this!

And just for fun....
In capitalist america... You are every bit as scared and alone as everyone else in the world. Your fears are not special or individual, and one day each and every one of us will die knowing that the world we leave behind is our childrens mess to clean up. Happy 4th of July.

In Capitalist America, bourgeoisie rises to crush you! HA!
I would suggest, perhaps, a 'rightsizing' notice in the background, paired with a stock ticker showing gains.
