Title: Coming up: BOTY contest
Post by: madbean on November 24, 2018, 08:43:48 PM
As is tradition every year, we will be having a 2018 Build of the Year contest which will be launching on Dec. 1st. This will give everyone a chance to vote on their favorite build of 2018 from the mbp community and will include prizes for the winner and runners-up. I am also thinking of running a second contest in tandem for folks who would like to be in a contest but maybe are less confident about their actual build techniques. The second contest is not focused on actual builds but rather creative use of DIY pedals. Specifically, a contest that requires an audio submission of some kind of creative or unique use of pedals you have built (regardless of year completed). What do you guys think of this idea? I'm also thinking I could supply an optional audio file of just a simple bass/drums/keys sequence that could be used in the submission (although would not be required; a pre-existing performance or audio clip would also be fine).

In any case, I am putting in a request for any additional sponsors for runners up prizes if you are inclined. This could be in the form of a small gift certificate to a PCB shop or parts supplier or just something cool you would donate to a participant. If you would like to sponsor the contest, please PM or email me at madbean AT gmail.com.

I'll have the final details of the contest(s) up later this week!

I like this idea! Pedals that can oscillate (like the No Name Flange) are something that springs to mind.

I have done probably 6 all year, but apparently I have only painted and decaled 2. My bi-phase is mostly just sharpee.

Dino and I will happily throw a few pcbs in the mix for prizes.

Does this count as "creative use"?  ;D ;D

Does it smell accordingly...?

I'll throw something into the cauldron of prizes from Nucleon. I hope to have some nice new projects ready soon, but I'll formalize the exact prize later on. Looking forward to all those fab builds.

Putting a microphone on your butt does NOT count. Come on.

I have a poem:

When you are 'bout to box up a fresh delay

And your butt just starts to spray, and spray, and spray...

Diarrhea. 

Diarrhea.

I could throw in a PCB as a price.

Where is the folder for the 2018 BOTY? I didn't see it in the member area; though I did see the past BOTY folders.

We have a winner!!

It sounded like an old Toyota Corolla I used to own for a few seconds there.  Then at other times it sounded like my old doberman after he ate a block of cheese.

Sorry guys - busy and distracted. It'll be up tomorrow and we'll be going through the 15th of January. So, 5 weeks to get your builds done.

Also, smallbear will be sponsoring a prize this year!

Last year I did mine on Boxing Day from start to finish, including video. This year is shaping up much the same...
