Making Faces Can Be Fun
Don’t delay! Do it now!
The V-ZA-V Watch is all about self-expression and we don't want to limit anybody's right to self-expression, so you don't need to be a V-ZA-V backer to participate in these events (but it couldn't hurt). Design your original watchfaces (photos, illustrations, doodles, you name it) and give each design a name. Then submit the named images as a JPEG or PDF attachment via email to: faces@VzaV-Watch.com. (And we'll post the link to our tumblr. page shortly.) There's no limit to the number of designs you submit.
All the design candidates will be on display in our Facial Expressions™ demo on the home page of our 1.0 website www.VzaV-Watch.com. And the voting will commence--we'll invite everybody (V-ZA-V backers, regular Kickstarters, and the yet to be enlightened public) to go to our website (link above) and cast a vote (or more) for their favorite watchface design via the "Get in Touch" button on the left side of the page. Once the polls close, V-ZA-V backers competing in the event will receive bonus votes for their support of the project (backing does have its privileges).
If one of your designs gets the most votes, you'll receive one of the Signature Edition Watch packs (see the $150 Pledge level for details). But that’s not all...your design will be produced along with our soon to be unveiled V-ZA-V “Wrist Wraps” (more to come on this) and made available as an “add-on" pledge level on our Kickstarter page. But that’s not all...you’ll also receive ten V-ZA-V Wrist Wraps and ten copies of your watchface design to share with friends.
Check out the details below! Deadline for submission is Monday, July 16, 2012 1:00 pm EDT (-4 GMT). The "polls" will open at our 1.0 website at 5:00 pm EDT (-4 GMT) and close Tuesday, July 17, 2012 at 4:59 pm EDT (-4 GMT).
Facial Expressions for the End of the World
If you haven’t heard, the world is slated to end on December 21, 2012 (don’t worry, you’ll have your V-ZA-V Watch by then). And according to the Mayans, it’s also the end of a 5,125-year cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. Some say it's merely a coincidence that both these endings are slated for the Winter Solstice. We on the V-ZA-V Team can't say for sure, but we do think these are two great reasons to celebrate the day, which is shaping up to be a tough one to beat.
To commemorate the occasion(s), we want you to design Facial Expressions for the End of the World. You choose the theme:
• the last day of the old year
• the last day of this old world
Just Follow these Simple Guidelines
• must be your original design or in the public domain--do not infringe on the intellectual property of others (in other words, unless you're Edvard Munch or the new buyer of his iconic painting, don't submit "The Scream." Congratulations Mr. Black!)
• cannot include content that is obscene, pornographic, hateful or otherwise objectionable, as determined by the V-ZA-V Team
• must be rectangular, at least 200 pixels x 200 pixels, but no larger than 800 pixels x 800 pixels (understanding the final image will be sized and cropped as a circular image).
Submitted images will be displayed in the demo on our 1.0 website home page.
