Clockwork Prince ARC Crafty Shadowhunter Contest  



So, it's been a while since I got to do a contest for an Advanced Reader Copy of a book, and I'm a little rusty *creaks*. Also, this is going to be a challenge because I only have one (yep, one) ARC of Clockwork Prince. So instead of splitting the contest up into separate entries, I am going to do one big contest. And because everyone has different talents, I am going to make it as open a contest as possible.

So: All you have to do to enter this contest is create something that has to do with the Infernal Devices and the character: Tessa, Jem, Will, Jessamine, etc. You can draw something. You can take a series of photographs and caption them entertainly. You can make a fanvid: it can be a trailer, or just as equally a video of you talking about the books, or a puppet show (who can forget The Lightwood Llama Song? ) You can photoshop a fan cover for Clockwork Princess. You can take a photo of yourself with Clockwork Angel in a bizarre location. Or you can think up something yourself. You can create a set of icons, a tumblr, a fansite — whatever. The idea is that you can put any talent you've got, pretty much, to work. (The only thing you can't do is write — unfortunately I a) can't read fiction set in my world and b) it can take a really long time to read all that stuff!)

Good luck!

Quick FAQ:

1) The entries will be due September 15. You enter by posting a link to whatever it is, or a photo of whatever it is, as a comment here on this entry. The link to do that:

2) They will be judged by myself and a panel of 3 impartial judges whose names will be revealed when the winner is. :)

3) You can enter as a group — i.e. four of you can get together and create something, it just means your group will win and you'll share the ARC.

4) One entry per person.

5) You don't need to put your real name or so forth in the entry, but you do have to give me some way to identify you when you win.

6) Try to make it something new. I obviously can't do too much checking but try not to resubmit something that's already out there. Good faith!

7) The contest is open internationally.

If you post anonymously and your post does not show up, please do not freak out. All anonymous comments are screened. I can see them. That is what matters.

I'm in! I'll probably do some pictures with my friends; getting them all to cosplay sounds fun. :) Even if we don't win, it should be a good time.

i know that it says that we can't write, but could I write a song about the ID? Because that's not really the same as writing, like, fanfiction.

Can you set your song to music and play a slide show of pictures with it playing? Then you have a video with the song ;)

About the Contest
If I wanted to draw the character(s). Do I have to draw all of them or could I choose one or two to draw? Thanks :3!

Re: About the Contest
You can draw a picture of Will's shoe. You guys are worrying too much! You can literally do anything you want except write a story or essay.

That is my entry for the contest :)
I also have the same one with Tessa and Jem, but, well, I wanted this one for the contest :D And I like Will much better. <3 Pictures belongs to Vania Stoyanova, who is making an amazing Clockwork Prince book trailer :) Please do not steal my picture. I spent a lot of time on it. (PS: I have the entry without a tag on it, just wasn’t sure if I should post with or without)
Love, Carina

Hi Cassandra,

Thank you so much for this giveaway! I'm so excited about your new book and I can't wait to get my hands on it! :) Here is my entry: it's a simple fanart for The Infernal Devices with Tessa & Will. I hope you'll like it :)

Link: http://i331.photobucket.com/albums/l452/mikki-mano/tessaandwill.png

P.S.: The pictures of Tessa and Will belongs to Vania Stoyanova!
rinnoa: [KHR] Bel genderbenderrinnoa on August 29th, 2011 08:39 pm (UTC)
This is just... amazing! Thank you for the opportunity :)

So... You said we can create a set of icons, right? Then could we create a picspam - maybe of our fancast or something like that - and then post it here, on lj, or on tumblr (under a specific tag)?
And also, if someone chooses to make a fansite - or a blog, or a tumblr - and then posts his/her own fanwork, will only her/his site (its creation) be considered an entry or will it be both the site and the fanwork?

I hope my questions don't sound confusing - I'm not a native speaker and I still have hard time expressing my thoughts in a way that others could understand them. ^^'
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on August 29th, 2011 10:41 pm (UTC)
Sure.

"And also, if someone chooses to make a fansite - or a blog, or a tumblr - and then posts his/her own fanwork, will only her/his site (its creation) be considered an entry or will it be both the site and the fanwork?"

The whole thing!

ARC competition.
Hiya, i was wondering if i could write a song or short poem at all, or does no writing mean no writing of any kind? It wouldn't be anything fanfictiony, it would be humorous and tasteful, only i dare not actually impose my singing voice upon any living soul. x

You can do whatever you want. You can make them out of noodles. :)

Question
What if the writing is a poem?

I am a terrible judge of poetry and two of the other judges hate it. I wouldn't recommend it!
