One reality those involved in the South Carolina subculture have to face is the lack of access to cool involvement opportunities. These possibilities range from attending goth concerts to hanging out with known goth personalities. Fortunately, author Chuck Palahniuk’s publisher Doubleday is offering a contest for anyone with access to cyberspace, including you!
Don’t remember exactly who Chuck Palahniuk is? You’ll probably recall his most well-known work, Fight Club, or the movie based on it. Whether you love his books or the movies generated by them, or even if you’re just into literature or cinema, you’ll want to participate in this internet challenge!
Until March 5th, you’ve got the opportunity to help choose the poster for Palahniuk’s next book, Tell-All. Should you follow the three steps, you could win a stack of the winning posters!
To contribute to a part of the process of selecting publicity art, check out the brief containing the Doubleday advertisement requirements. Be sure to read the first two chapters of the novel if you’d like a sneak peek! They’re located on the left side of the brief in the box entitled “Materials.”
Then, view the contributions and vote for your favorite. Note that the Doubleday instructions must be followed for the artwork to win.
Finally, send an e-mail to email@example.com. It must have a subject line with the name of the artist who created the poster you like, and you’ll need to include your entire name and address in the e-mail itself.
There are two possible ways for the 50 winners of the posters to be chosen. The actual method used will depend on whether the art chosen by Doubleday is actually the one voted best by the public (they won’t necessarily use the work chosen by the voters). If the winner is indeed the one that received the most votes, then 50 random names from those who voted for it will be drawn to win the posters. If Doubleday utilizes a different work, then 50 names out of all those who voted for any poster will be drawn.
Why do they have to make it so complicated? Who knows! But at least you’ll potentially get to influence a decision that will impact how an anticipated book will be presented to prospective customers. And, of course, you have yet another chance to indulge in your dark interests this first week of March in South Carolina!
