Rules:

1. Entries may be submitted NOW until Monday, November 3rd at 5pm Pacific Standard Time.

2. Entry must include a picture of you in a costume inspired by the Night Angel Trilogy or The Lightbringer Series (go HERE to check out the Night Angel character sketches), along with a one or two sentence description.

3. International entries are allowed and encouraged!

4. As long as the costume is materially yours, some Photoshop is fine (no presenting characters from movies or video games by putting a gloss of Photoshop on it and saying it’s your costume).

5. Two entries allowed per person, but you can only win once.

6. The subject line of the email should read: 2014 Costume Contest

7. Address the email to CAPSLOCK @ brentweeks.com (no spaces; and as in previous years, Brent will be selecting the winners).

8. The costume must be family-friendly (as usual, we’d like to display the best entries on the website and we can’t do that if it’s not appropriate for younger fans).

9. Other:

Video submissions are allowed, but Brent is judging the costume, not the video. Brent will judge costumes individually if you have two people in a photo, but only one person will receive a prize. You must be 18 or older to win (younger participants are welcome, but by law I can’t give you a prize). No purchase is necessary. Odds of winning are based on the number of entries. We will notify winners via email; you must respond within 7 days, or another winner will be chosen. The grand prize is worth approximately $100. Second place is worth approximately $60. Third place is worth approximately $30. Fourth place is worth about $15.

Winners will be announced on Monday, November 10, 2014.

Photo Contest: Calling Military Personnel!

Photo Contest: Calling Military Personnel!

Are you in the military? Do you not want to be beaten by the Army? (Or do you want to make sure the Army wins?) Below is a picture that sets the bar for awesome. Whoever can take the photo that’s the nearest to being as cool as this will get a signed copy of The Way of Shadows graphic novel, and a signed copy of The Broken Eye. I’ll send the prizes to any APO or stateside address. Due Friday, October 31!

If the winner somehow manages to take a picture that’s even cooler than this, I’ll throw in something extra, too.

Captain E.H. shares these photos from Kandahar, Afghanistan:

Those photos? Taken from one of these:
Apache

This contest is only for members of the military (or spouses). Members of non-US militaries are also eligible. I’ll do my best to be impartial.

The photo has to be yours, it has to feature one of my books, and it has to be real. (We’ll do a fake photo contest soon, save your Photoshop skills.) To enter, send your photo to CONTEST (at) brent weeks (dot) com.
