Contestpalooza - 3 Geeky Online Contests

Time to get in touch with your inner Zombie and or Trekkie and win some geeky prizes. All you need to do is create something with the following theme – Zombie Trekkie Holiday. It can be a picture, drawing, song, painting, flash fiction, fan film, cell phone video, diorama, sculpture, interpretive dance, poem, body art, limerick, haiku, just about anything, as long as it has the Zombie Trekkie Holiday theme.

The details - All entries are due eight days after Michael Dorn’s Birthday on December 17th. Entries can be e-mailed to KevWasHere@aol.com. Entries may be displayed on several web sites/blogs/Facebook. Judges will announce the winners on December 20th. In the event of a tie judges will face off in the arena armed with batliffs and lirpas until a clear winner is decided.

All contestants must be human, living or dead – no exceptions. Prizes can not be exchanged for latnum or any other form of galactic currency.

First Prize – autographed printed galley collectors addition of Night of the Living Trekkies, autographed Night of the Living Trekkies poster, and a hardback copy of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Second Prize – autographed printed galley collectors addition of Night of the Living Trekkies, autographed Night of the Living Trekkies poster, and a copy of Dawn of the Dreadfuls, the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies prequel by Steve Hockensmith.

Third Prize – autographed Night of the Living Trekkies poster and a copy of The Encyclopedia of Guilty Pleasures by NotLT co-author Sam Stall

Honorable Mentions will receive something yet to be determined.


The next contest is from The Zombie Dating Guide - The Zombie Xmas Carol Contest!

Just record yourself singing one of two undead carols - The Zombie Christmas Song or Its Beginning to Look a Lot Like Zombies, both written by Zombie Dating Guide creator Stacey Graham. The winner will receive a copy of the zombie anthology, The Undead that Saved Christmas, and a Night of the Living Trekkies autographed poster. Get the detail at The Zombie Xmas Carol Contest.


The final contest is from Quirk Books author Ben Winters. He is giving away three signed copies of Android Karenina and a heavily annotated copy of Anna Karenina that Ben used to create the mash-up version. Get all the details at Ben's site at http://www.benhwinters.com/

Good luck. Live long and prosper...and may the creative force be with you.

I've also submitted mine. I tried to be funny and slightly sarcastic. I'm not too sure it was, though. I'm glad I caught my orphaned line, though.
