Well, I showed up here at The Intersection, and boy, the place needed some cleaning up…Chris’s bad habits, leaving unwashed dishes in the sink, mountains of empty Miller Lite bottles everywhere, and most troubling…we have no proper Scibling banner. So after some sidebar housekeeping and other small-scale fixing up of things, it was time to address that major faux pas. As a result, Chris and I are now ready to announce:
The 1st Annual CRASH THE INTERSECTION Contest
Design an “Intersection” banner and have your art displayed atop our blog for at least one year where the world can be dazzled by your creativity and wit! That’s thousands of views a day all credited to you! We like to mix things up so there are no guidelines as long as it’s not rated NC-17. Out-of-the-box ideas encouraged and keep the theme in mind: An Intersection of Science, Policy, and Pop Culture. Our posts are good insight into what we like…everything from conservation and storm forecasting to music and policy… Surprise us with something unexpected or impress us with style and class.
Winner will receive, in addition to fame, signed hardcover copies of both of Chris’s books, a signed photo featuring the majestic sea cucumber and me, and a little something special from ScienceBlogs! For inspiration, check out almost any other Scibling. Email questions and entries to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. All submissions must be received by Friday, September 14, 2007 and a winner will be announced by September 21. By submitting your banner, you give The Intersection permission to feature your work online.
Sheril and Chris
