As mentioned on our forums a few weeks ago here at CastleTV.net we've been thinking about an artwork competition to help promote season 2 of Castle… This competition is now open! Rules:

  1. All forms of artwork will be accepted (digital or hand drawn/created although the latter will need to be scanned or photographed).
  2. Entries are open to all including those outside the USA.
  3. Entries close Monday 27th July, 8pm PDT (USA).
  4. Entries should be free of offensive language/images (if you are unsure what is acceptable please PM or email us before posting your entry).
  5. Entries need to be posted to our forums at /forums/get-creative/castletvnet-artwork-competition-entries you must register to be able to post in this section of the forum.
  6. Maximum of 3 entries per person.
  7. One entry will win the prize, a Castle cast photograph personally signed by Nathan Fillion.
  8. Winning entries will be posted to the CastleTV.net website. Other prizes may be allocated at the discretion of CastleTV.net.
  9. All entries will be posted on our forums at the completion of the competition where people will be free to repost them to forums, blogs etc (remember, the idea of this competition is to promote Castle)

Prize: 8×10 of the original Castle cast signed in person by Nathan Fillion at the Collectormania convention in the UK last month. Valued at $40.

Note: Sorry about the quality of this photograph of the photo, I will replace it soon, but you get the idea. The actual photo is clear and not overexposed as this image would have you believe. Some ideas include banners people can use to post on forums etc. Videos that can be posted to youtube and linked on forums, blogs etc. Icons that people can use on facebook, myspace, blogs etc. Hand drawn artwork, really pretty much anything. The intent is to draw interest to or directly promote season 2 of Castle. Things you can include in your entries are:

  • Images of the cast or images from series 1
  • Premiere date of season 2 September 21, 2009
  • Reference to this website ie. castletv.net

For this competition to be worthwhile we need lots of entries so please mention it wherever you go online! You can use this banner if you like, or just post a link to this post or directly to the forum.

Would someone with access to the Castle forum at the ABC website mind posting info about this comp over there?  For some reason I have trouble posting messages there and half the time they disappear.

We've now installed an image  uploader so that you don't have to upload the image somewhere else before posting here.  To upload an image you will need to do the following:

  1. Click on the image (picture of a tree) icon in the toolbar above where you post
  2. To the right of the “image url” box is a small icon, click on it.
  3. In the window that pops up, click on “upload image”
  4. Click “Browse” and then find the image you wish to upload from your computer and click “open”
  5. The image will then upload.  Click on the image once it displays and this will automatically fill in the “Image URL” info.
  6. Click insert and you're done!

I hope that's not too complicated (it's easier than it sounds when you see all that written out!)

I have to admit, I'm a little disappointed there hasn't been more enthusiasm for this Cry

There's still time. People usually wait until the last minute to post.

It's not just lack of posting actual entries, I've not seen much at all in the way of discussion around the web.  I'm afraid the competition is in danger of being cancelled, or at least postponed as per the “for this competition to be worthwhile we need lots of entries” above.

Hmm… maybe so but it will also be a disappointment to those who did enter if you do. I'm not thinking about myself. I did it for fun of it, but what about the others who took the time and effort to do something. I don't think that's fair to them if you cancel it.

Well, I did say from the beginning that for it to be worthwhile there needed to be lots of entries.  If I do postpone it the existing entries will still be eligible.  Best thing you can do is help spread the word.

The prize cost me $40 (on top of all the $$ I spend keeping the site running) which I thought was good value for money if it could help promote the show…. but it seems the promotion idea has kind of fallen a bit flat.

Oh believe me I'm trying to spread the word to the extent that I think my co-workers and family are going to have me committed soon. Cool

I see that even on the abc board there's not much going on. It could be almost everyone is on vacation now… It doesn't help that reruns are on the graveyard night of Sat. too.

The prize is a good one. If people don't think it's worth the effort then their reasons for entering are not the right ones.
