Put this up over at AoD, but I haven't had any takers yet, so I'll throw it up here too...
The Apple of Discord technically began sometime in mid-March of 2008, but since the “official” start date listed on Page Uno is April 1st (what more fitting a first day than April Fool’s Day, anyway?) I think that’s when we’re going with.
In celebration of our rapidly approaching 1-year anniversiary, I’m holding open submissions for… well, honestly… anything that people want to send me. Fan art, filler comics, a video of you dancin’ like a moron… it’s all fair game. Submissions will be open through March 28th, with all your fan works being featured during the 1-week aniversiary (while I take a week off and go traumatize some politicians in Washington D.C.).
Anything you send, no matter how bad, will go up in the gallery under a special Anniversiary section… the top six choices will go to the front page that week (no 7th, have something special planned for the 1st). On top of getting featured on the front page of AoD and seen by it’s hundreds… well, ok, tens… of readers and your link forever etched in my archives, we’ll take votes all week and the top three entrants that go up on the front page will receive:
Third Prize: A comic-on-demand voucher for my services - I can attack a topic of your choosing here on AoD, do a filler comic for your comic (if you have one), or do a piece of commissioned “art”.
Second Prize: A signed copy of all 3 year-1 Apple of Discord print comics (see more details below), my extremely limited-run print version of the comic collecting the best of Year 1.
First Prize: A brand-new does-n0t-actually-exist-yet Apple of Discord shirt of your choosing in the size of your choosing (none of this “One Size fits Most crap - you want 5xlt, I’ll find a way to make it happen).
Email your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org
and remember, cut-off is Saturday, March 28th.
