Two photochoppers will face off in a head-to-head contest each week to create the best possible entry based on the topic presented.
This week, Josephus was hastily challenged by three-time HM and one-time monkey winner, Guiseppi. However in a somewhat inexplicable maneuver, it seems as if Guiseppi has bowed out of the challenge. Will you be Josephus's next competitor? If you're nice, toss your hat into the ring or if you're nasty, throw down the gauntlet!
Dodgeball – Topic for Contest #1
Target marketing motivates a specific set of customers to purchase items or acquire certain services. Woot has planned one evening each month to cater a product or service to a specific group of potential customers.
January = National Dorks Month
February = National Mailbox Decorators Month
March = National Reality TV Enthusiasts Month
April = National Dirty Jobs Month
May = National Coasters Month
June = National Lamp Lovers Month
July = National Evangelists Month
August = National Woot Employee Uniform Month
September = National Space Creatures Month
October = National Goths Month
November = National Women's Month
December = National Wrestlers Month
Your task, should you accept the challenge, is to:
Design a product (or service) to be featured on woot to cater to one of the special interest groups mentioned above.
Your final product must be shown in the woot webpage format. Dummy text may be used for the product description. You may alter the colors of woot’s webpage to help enhance your marketing effort.
Post your entry here by 11:59 PM EST on Wednesday, November 8th, 2006. There are no cash prizes in Dodgeball. The winner will be selected by a group of woot peers. The winner will receive the much coveted Wonderstew Trophy of Excellence and will be given the honor of choosing a new topic for Dodgeball Contest #2. Use Photoshop, play-doh, decoupage, GIMP, MSPaint, welding equipment, whatever, but it’ll only be judged if it’s visible in the forum as a jpg, gif, or png. 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. And if you want to impress us, post links to your source images.
Woot Forum Aficionados: If you'd like to choose a winner, email your selection to email@example.com by noon EST on Thursday.
