My loss is your gain… I’ve been making a habit of helping out Mike and the JoeCanuck guys with images for their trading card sets, but apparently I just got fired. :shifty:
In all seriousness, the guys behind the Canadian JoeCon have started a trading card contest, where you may get the chance to have your image appear on one of their cool as all get-out limited edition trading cards. Not only that, but there are some great prizes as well! Click the “Read the Rest of this Story” link below for the nitty gritty. The full announcement can also be found on JoeCanuck.com.
JoeCanuck.com is running a contest with the following prizes:
Canadian Joe Con sticker sheet, Dead Eye sticker sheet, HATE Tank sticker sheet, and VIP admission tag from the 2009 Canadian Joe Con!
By now you’ve seen our past JoeCanuck Trading cards, if not take a look here:
Normally, Justin from GeneralsJoes.com would take the images for us, but this time we’re giving our own board members a chance to have their name placed on one of our cards for the image credit! ….mind you, Justin may enter it as well since he’s a member of JoeCanuck.com. 😉
We need images of the following figures for the cards:
Card # 12 Chacal Noir Figure
Card # 14 Back-Stop Figure
Card # 16 Frostback Trooper Figure
Card # 18 The Dead Eye Vehicle
Card # 20 The H.A.T.E. Vehicle
Each card will list your name on the back with credit to you for the image, you’ll get plenty cards of the one your image is picked for to share with your friends, drop off at comic shops, or start your own campfire with! 😉
FIVE winners will receive one set of each prize. One person is eligible to win all 5 sets should that persons images ALL be voted as “the best” for that character/vehicle.
You can submit images for all items if you wish – no more than two images per person, per item. Zip up those images (www.winzip.com) and email them to email@example.com with your board name and real name.
Images do not need to contain snow. This past year we were very careful to try and make the exclusives “non-winter-esq”. Snow is ok if that’s all you have in your area, far be it for us to stop your creative mind by saying no snow! 😉
Photoshopping images with “gunfire” or some other enhancing item is permitted, but both the photoshopped image and original must be included in the zip-file.
Once all images have been submitted, they’ll be posted here on JoeCanuck.com and be voted on by your fellow board members. The images with the highest votes will be the OFFICIAL images for those specific figure or vehicle cards.
Submissions will be accepted until Saturday, December 26th, 2009.
Voting will begin on Monday, December 28rd and will run until Saturday, January 5th, 2010.
Your submitted images may be used for promotion of JoeCanuck.com, The Canadian Joe Con, or the JoeCanuck Newsletter. This applies to both the winning images and non-winning images.
