It’s February, and you know what that means! Yes, of course, six more weeks of winter. But it also means that it’s time for The Nest to launch the next exciting rendition of The Contest of Whatever! Or CoW, for short…
And just what is the Contest of Whatever, for those of you who’ve never played one or who think last February seems like it was a hundred years ago?
The CoW is all about creativity and having fun, which have long been two hallmarks of my blog. The first Contest was held in 2014, and bloggers everywhere have been making me smile and laugh while impressing me with the products of their imagination ever since! If you’d like to check out the history of the CoW with past winners and submissions, you can check it all out at the Contest’s official page HERE!
The Contest Of Whatever even offers fun and fabulous prizes! Well, if you like random crap from Cafepress with my drawings or photos on it, that is. And you can win one of them even if you think the right side of your brain contains nothing but mind fungus! If you have a blog that you can post on, YOU can be a winner of the Contest of Whatever!
So what do you have to do to enter the 2021 Contest of Whatever? Well, each year I’ll pick a theme for the Contest that all entries should be based around… and then all you have to do is post something on your blog that is the product of your own creativity! Most players will write stories or such, but ANY type and combination of art form that you can post for the world to see is accepted and encouraged! If you can make it, it can gain you CoW glory and fame!
But as I said, you don’t have to do anything elaborate…. most people don’t! Just come up with a completed submission that somehow ties in the unifying theme for this year’s contest.
And the theme for the 2021 Contest of Whatever is……………
So many possible interpretations. How will you work X into your Contest of Whatever entry?
Don’t worry… you have plenty of time to stew on what to come up with! The contest runs for four weeks, beginning as soon as this post goes live today! Your entry needs to be posted to your blog before midnight on Thursday night March 4, 2021! Make sure to include a link to THIS POST in yours to trigger a pingback, but you can feel free to also leave the link to your entry in the comments here.
As usual, the Contest will reward two winners! The first will be the entry that, by my own completely arbitrary judgment, I deem to be the best of the bunch! There will also be a random drawing winner among all of the runners up for a second prize. Both winners will be able to choose something valued at $20 USD or less from my long-since-neglected Cafepress shop, which I will have shipped to their door! If you think the selection sucks, any product from the store that is under $20 can also be made with any image (of mine) you see on my blog, if you so desire as well.
All entries received will be posted on my blog, with the usual irreverent “critique” from Mitzi, Snuggle and Fuzzywig, on Friday March 5th. And the two winners will be announced on Sunday March 7th! But you can’t be one of those winners if you don’t play the easiest contest out there in the blogosphere to enter!
So, fire up those neurons and make something fun, fascinating, and dare I say, clever for me! The 2021 Contest of Whatever starts now! Spread the word!
Good luck, and have a shitload of fun!!!
