Today marks the release of yet another Woot Cellars wine, Triacipedis the White. But while we adore the typically geeky wizard-themed packaging, we're feeling like it's time to expand our customer base. Now that we're approaching saturation of the "Internet boozehound with pretensions to class" demographic, we ask ourselves, where can we turn next? Then we realize we don't know anybody but Internet boozehounds with pretensions to class. So we're asking you:
Show us the label for a new Woot Cellars wine designed to appeal to a not-previously-Woot-friendly demographic.
Seventh-Day Adventists. Inner-city seniors. The burgeoning Icelandic-American community. There's market share just waiting for us out there if we can find it. Or rather, if you can find it. We'll wait here.
Post your entry here by 11:59 AM (central) on Monday, June 22, 2009. Prizes are $20/$50/$100 for 3rd/2nd/1st. The rules and criteria for winning: our panel of volunteer judges can and will make stuff up as it goes along. Use Photoshop, linoleum blocks, pastels, MSPaint, cave painting, tattoos, tribal scarification, whatever, but it’ll only be judged if it’s visible in our forums as a jpg, gif, or png. As we are fond of saying, try to keep your maximum width to 550px. If you need a place to host your pictures, try www.imageshack.ws or www.photobucket.com. We have no connection to either, but they seem free and easy to use. And if you want us to be sure your entry was indeed your work, post links to your source images. The more sure we are that you did your own work, the more likely we are to consider it for a prize.
