Woo hoo, the 2015 Oscars are upon us! It's no secret that I look forward to watching the Academy Awards every year.
(as always you can view this post on my website here: PhoenixWave)
As some of you might know, I try and do this as an annual contest but last year was probably the biggest drop in participation that I've ever had. (hence why I didn't end up doing an award like I had promised, big sorry goes out to my Father and Brother for that one) 2015 is going to be different, it's going to be the biggest and best Oscar ballot contest yet! Am I right!? Anyways, I'm hoping to get a spike in participation from people at work this time around and hopefully friends and family will join in the fun too!
You might be asking..."Lucas, that's all fun but what are we playing for? - Why should we do this little Oscar ballot thing? - I don't even watch half the movies that are nominated" etc etc etc. Well my friends, it doesn't matter if you've seen them or not - I'm sure you can make well educated guesses based on what the internet has to say.
How to Play
Alright it's really simple, all you have to do is download the ballot using the button below, print it off and pick your winners for each category. Then scan the document or take pictures of it and send them to me at [email protected] . It's that easy!
What is the Prize?
You might also ask, "why should I do this?" The better question is, why not? I can't convince you to play but I can offer something as a prize! The winner will receive a custom poster from yours truly featuring a movie of your choice. To help illustrate this, here's an example of something I did for my father for winning the march madness bracket challenge. (the award was a poster designed with your favorite song in mind - see below)
I hope that is incentive enough - but I can understand if someone doesn't want their own custom poster designed for them. (not really, you must be crazy to pass up that opportunity!)
Again, just download the ballot, fill it out as best as you can, and get it back to me one way or another. The winner will be announced on the blog the following day after the Oscars have aired. You have from now till Saturday, the 21st of February, to submit your entry!
Thanks for participating and have fun!
