Most of you are aware that HansonTickets.com sponsored an “I Have Hope” Penny with proceeds from its sales going to HIVSA.
We have decided to do this again, this time for a charity based in the USA. (Charity is still TBD but it will be to benefit music education in schools – leave suggestions in the comments)
We will be holding a design contest so the final product will be designed by a hansontickets.com / hansontickets blog viewer!
Rules: (subject to change)
-No more than 5 entries can be submitted per person
-Entries will be collected until June 30, 2009
-Engraver reserves the right to modify the design in order for it to work better on such a small medium (penny)
-No copyrighted materials can be used
-Design should in some way be Hanson-related
-Winner can be from USA or over seas – everyone is welcome to participate
-A contest entry form will be posted on this site in the upcoming weeks as a .pdf.
-All submissions will need to be emailed (will be posted with the entry form)
Entries can be hand-drawn and then scanned in for a submission or computer generated.
Don’t worry if you’re not that great of an artist. We will be picking a very talented engraver (TBA) who can work with what you submit and polish it up to be a great design.
Winner will receive 5 copies of their design on a penny as well as 1 on a nickel.
The top 5 or 10 designs (depending on overall number of submissions) will be narrowed down by the hansontickets.com staff & other trusted friends. There will be final voting through this blog. Depending on the number of entries, there may be several rounds of voting. Voting will occur in July and possibly into August.
We are looking to have the final product ready for sale in the Fall – hopefully around the time Hanson will be touring.
If you have any questions, please leave a comment so when I answer everyone will see it.
