As you may know, I am planning a catalogue. One of the things that I want the catalogue to do is to tell the story of Snapdragon. And part of that story is you - the readers, commenters, passers on of this blog.
So, last week I was thinking about how to do that and was also fretting about how to photograph badges when there are so many of them and suddenly I had an idea. I could get you to do the photographing. And in return you would get a free badge.
Here is the deal.
1. you chose a badge design from the list below and email me with details of your choice and address.
2. I send the badge off to you free, gratis and for nothing.
3. you photograph it using a digital camera - you can wear it, you can pin it on a bag, a dog, a child, a teddy - I'm not bothered as long as it is legal and printable.
4. you e-mail your photo to me and I pass them onto Kate, the graphic designer, who will pick, crop, discard them as she wishes and they may be used in my catalogue/website/blog. I am hoping to have 2 pages of photomontage of bloggers' images.
What do you think?
My e-mail is email@example.com.
The badges are
Button Badges -
cake, caravan, chicken, flower, heart, house, ladybird, snail, star, toadstool, meadow
Square badges -
cake, caravan, chicken, dog, flower, heart, jam, ladybird, space hopper, toadstool, poppy, fennel.
The deadline will be a fortnight to allow readers from outside the UK to take part - feel free to pass on the offer to friends etc. but please don't sign up if you won't do the photo.
There will be 100 badges on offer.
Offer is open to all - even people who won badges in the recent give-away.
