On Monday October 13th, 2008, the Aquabats posted a new contest tied to their latest tour on both their Myspace Page, and Official Forums.
The Aquabats Hooray for the Holidays Tour: Hooray for Poster Contests Contest!
So many tour dates are filling our schedule this holiday season! We have so many things to do preparing for these shows that we're backed up in the poster creation department. That's where you kids come in!
For each and every show on our Hooray for the Holidays Tour schedule we need a brand-spanking new poster to promote the show! Each location needs itself a beautiful piece of art that tells the tale of masked adventurers on their quest for musical and magical glory. Can you fill that void, the void left by our relative laziness? YES YOU CAN!
Not only that, we'll be making it worth your while! For the winning poster creation on each and every tour date, we'll be giving away one (1) free concert ticket! Not only do you get the official recognition of your imaginative and oh so artsy skills on our website and at our shows but you also get to come in and see the printed posters FREE O' CHARGE!
So what are you waiting for? Bust out your colored pencils, charcoal pencils, wax crayons and charcoal pencil wax and get to workin'!
Please submit your finished poster to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following necessary information somewhere (anywhere) on the poster:
1. The Aquabats 2. Dates, Venue Name, and Venue City
And send it with your personal information so we can inform and reward you:
1. Your name 2. The tour date you're poster's entry is for (and consequently which show you'd like to go to if you win) 3. Your e-mail 4. Your address 5. Your cadet number (if you're a cadet) 6. Your forum name (if you're registered to our forum)
All poster entries are due November 7th. We'll be choosing the Grand Prize winners for each poster 1 week before each show at the following dates:
