The Crossroads of the Aether
For the month of November we shall be holding a design contest, much like our banner contest in January, for our talented and creative members to create a pin design that is simple and yet captures the essence of Steampunk Empire. On November 28th a short list of entries will be selected and voting will proceed to choose a winning design. The winner will receive an actual pin of his or her design (once they have gone into production) and this delightful replica of the Victoria Cross medal.
Please note very carefully that by submitting your design to Steampunk Empire you are agreeing to make it the property of Steampunk Empire
and that your compensation for the use of your design will the medal above, an
actual pin of your design, and more kudos than there is tea in India.
To enter the contest, simply submit your design as comment to this thread. Good luck, and may the best design win!
Post Script: The replica medal that is being offered as a prize for this contest was purchased in Scotland at Edinburgh Castle, the head quarters of one of the British Army Regiments (the Royal Scots Regiment to be precise), so rest assured that the Government of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II consents to non-military personnel having ownership of this replica.
Post Post Script: There are varying opinions regarding war medal protocol and the separate discussion thread on the topic is a most appropriate place for this debate to continue. Meanwhile in the interests of keeping this thread focused on its original topic some comments have been removed. It is the conclusion of Steampunk Empire's administration that the winner of this contest will be at liberty to decide whether or not to accept the replica medal as a prize.
