[O.O] ***** WHAT? ***** [O.O]

With the success of the Dookie-Poo Vinyl Enhancement Kits created circa New York Comic-Con, the concept is to seek contributions from YOU folks - of an original diorama creation, props and/or clothing - that adds to or enhances the world of DOOKIE-POO VINYL or is DOOKIE-POO-THEMED. It could be a giant Robot for Dookie to pilot or control, could be a UPS TRUCK in his scale, could be a funky sofa or a functional play ground! Whatever you want! The top 2 submitted ideas/designs (separated into 2 distinct categories) chosen will win one of 2 prize packages, sponsored by Chaotic Unicorn.

[O.O] ***** WHY? ***** [O.O]

The idea/concept for this Paper Jam is to eventually evolve beyond the initial contest, into a continuous experiment where the world is invited to continue finding ways to make the Dookie-Poo vinyl toy line fun or inventive and share their ideas with the community. With that notion, I've also created a dedicated-blog @ http://dookiepoo-paperjam.blogspot.com specifically to serve as both showcase and papertoy-depository - to house any and all submissions, for both Paper Jam Contest and subsequent additions - after they have made their debut on this blog, of coz :p

[O.O] ***** 2008 PAPER JAM CONTEST THEME ***** [O.O]

Design an original diorama creation, props and/or clothing - via paper-craft / paper-toy - that adds to or enhances the world of DOOKIE-POO VINYL or is DOOKIE-POO-THEMED.

Your creations are to fit all Dookie-Poo Series 1 Vinyl Figures. Submissions to be All-Ages-Friendly, and can be in any style and based on anything that is fun and suitable to the world of Dookie-Poo and Pooville - in either two categories stated below.

[O.O] ***** PAPER JAM CONTEST CATEGORIES ***** [O.O]

There will be 2 Categories for this Contest: DIORAMA Playsets and PROPS Playsets - with the specific requirement that ALL submitted designs are to fit a standard Dookie-Poo vinyl figure (Series 1 / tagged)

the DIORAMA Category will consist of a designed paper-craft environment - created for Dookie-Poo to interact with - be it an interior or exterior space, inclusive of props. Some examples of this would be the GO-GO-KART POOVILLE, SLEEPY-POO BEDROOM and the TRE-Exclusive DOOKIE-LOUNGE (Clothing is optional in this category, but cool if ya wanna make it a complete makeover tho) - The previous two listed is currently FREE for download now: Go-Go-Kart & Bedroom


To facilitate this contest (and most importantly for size reference) We have a basic size template of an approx. 4-incher tall Dookie-Poo, in lieu of an actual Dookie-Poo vinyl (which you can still purchase!) - click on image below to download+save 1626 x 795-image.

Dookie-Scale

the PROPS Category basically requires a singular prop or a group of props - no smaller than a Dookie-Poo vinyl-figure (which means you don't just submit a single lolly-pop only, yo LOL) - TOGETHER with a shirt to go along with the prop. One example is the TRE-Exclusive ARCADE set with Green-jersey (shown below) - But if you want to add more clothing and accessories, go ahead!


And to add to the Dookie-Poo vinyl-scale image above, and to further facilitate folks' possible hesitance to engage in paper-tailoring (one prime example is ME! LOL) click on image below to download a 2383 x 1460 T-SHIRT TEMPLATE - for you to add-on, alter, whatever your Pooshionista-tastes desires!

Dookie-Poo Vinyl Figures are kindly sponsored by Chaotic Unicorn!
(*Prizes subject to change without given notice)

To ensure fairness to all, no one single person can be chosen as winners in both categories.

[O.O] ***** SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS ***** [O.O]

01. Designs Submissions for both DIORAMA and PROPS Categories are to be in the fully-rendered full-color ready-to-print-cut-and-paste Final Stage - via 2D Template format = Basically ready to be printed and made into the actual papertoys that fit the Dookie-Poo vinyl figure/toy.

Direct submissions to me via email @ toysrevil [at] gmail [dot] com to be in a file I could upload to blogger/picasaweb without compromising your final colors - as it may be in CMYK whereas I may process it to RGB. (we can discuss this in further details when you're ready to submit, yeh? educate me - as I is still a noob)

Alternatively, if you already have uploaded unto your own servers/web/blog - do provide me with a link (link to download directly) and an image (at least 500-across) for me to use on the dedicated contest-blog/depot.

02. In addition to the submitted template, you are to also submit at least one single image / photograph of the completed paper model - cut out and folded into shape/form. Understandably you may not have the Dookie-Poo vinyl in-hand for that moment, but a simple scaled cut-out would suffice. You can send as many photographs as you would like of the completed paper-craft/toy - it would be fab for visual reference on the PaperJam-blog as well :)

03. I have also created a FLICKR-GROUP @ http://flickr.com/groups/paperjam/ where you (as a flickr-member) can upload and submit for the contest - at your leisure without emailing me directly. (altho a wee note would help, thanks!)

04. There is no limit to the number of designs you can submit, in either categories. (But I reserve the right of refusal of any submissions deemed inappropriate, without given warning).

05. You DO NOT necessarily need to own a Dookie-Poo vinyl figure yourself to participate in this contest. It would be great to have one as scale and for photo-ops, but with the given template, you could make a rudimentary scaled figure for comparison.

hey andy?
i just fully read the post and realised.
i dont own a dookie-poo vynil figure (i didnt only just relise that, lol) so am i still able to design something/participate.

how am i to to take pictures, or will that be left to the judges or someone else that owns a dookie poo to do?

toysrevil said...

Daimen - nope, you do not need to own a Dookie-vinyl to participate (maybe i should make that clearer hhhmmm)

what you can do, is to use a simple scaled-printout of Dookie (provided as a template) along with your completed design - to show scale - and snap your pic!

i could print out and take pics, but i dont own a DP-vinyl myself LOL
