Photo Contest II: The Return

So I’ve been slowly digging through my backlog of fanmail. Most of it has been extraordinarily pleasant. There have been a few turds in there, but they’re so rare as to be statistical anomalies.

While reading them all, I’ve also found three letters similar to this one:

Dear Pat,

I read name of the wind long, long ago back in 2007. And I’ve been a reader of your blog for just about as long.

Back in 2008, when the paperback version of The Name of the Wind came out, you did a photo contest. I remember it was a ton of fun seeing all the photos people took of themselves and your book. Do you remember the girls that got naked and painted themselves with your book covers?

So I was mostly wondering, are you going to do a photo contest again? I remember you saying you were planning on it, but that was a long time ago…

Best Wishes,

Sandra

“Do you remember the girls that got naked and painted themselves with your book covers?”

This is perhaps the most ridiculous question in the history of ever. Of course I remember that picture. I still consider it one of the absolute high points of my writing career. The blog I wrote about that picture back in 2008 is as true today as it was back then.

You want to know one of the best things about this picture? The women were honest-to-goodness rocket scientists. I shit you not. They were aerospace engineers.

The truth is, Sandra, I planned on doing a photo contest as soon as the second book came out. But with the chaos of revision followed by the book tour, I just plain forgot about it.

But now my failing memory has been jogged by you and several other diligent readers. Looking over the blogs from the first contest has warmed my heart and reminded me how much fun it was seeing all of those pictures.

Like this one of the most furious baby in the world:

Or the one where someone made pants for my books:

(Yes. Pants. For my book.)

All the entries from Captain Joe. My favoritest fan I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting yet.

(The name of his steed? Thunderplumb.)

Or one of my favoritest, simplest pictures:

So hell yes. Photo contest. Let’s do it again.

Here are the rules.

1. The picture doesn’t need to include you, but it does need to include the book.

2. Photo manipulation is legal, but by no means required.

3. Multiple entries are allowed.

4. Pictures will be judged on their general coolness. Categories will include anything I feel like, for example: “Most Awesome,” “Most Funny.” “Most Sexy” “Most Dramatic” and “Most Best.”

4b. I reserve the right to add extra categories, remove categories, and pretty much do whatever I like when it comes to the organization and presentation of the pictures.

5. You can’t do anything illegal or recklessly dangerous.

5B. Yes. Even if it’s cool.

5c. Yes. I’m serious. I won’t post up your picture at all if it’s obvious you’re playing in traffic or climbing a fence into a military base. Play nice. Be smart.

6. Winners will win. Winning will include some manner of prize. The nature of the prizes is yet to be determined, but I’ll do my best to make them cool.

7. All photos will be judged in a completely arbitrary and subjective manner.

8. Pictures should be jpgs no larger than 4 megs each. (Lest y’all crash my gmail account.)

9. You have one month to get your pictures submitted. The contest is over April 30th at Midnight.

[Edit April 25th] Contest Deadline Extended! New deadline is May 15th.

For those of you that are interested, here are the blogs that show some of the best pictures from the last contest:

Photo Contest Part I – Shrines

Photo Contest Part II – Babies

Photo Contest Part III – Anthropomorphic and Athletic

Photo Contest Part IV – Celebrities and Foreign Climes

Photo Contest Part V – Driving, Reading, and Animals

Photo Contest Part VI – Miscellaneous

Photo Contest Part VII – Drama

Photo Contest Part VIII – Eros, Filius, and Agape

Photo Contest Part IX – Covers and Cosplay

Photo Contest Part X – The Grand Prize Winner

If nothing else, you really need to check out that last one. The grand prize winner was awesome to such a degree that I’m still stunned by it. Time has not dimmed its luster by one iota. Their prize was that they got to beta-read book two.

How to Submit Your Picture.

E-mail your pictures to the following address: paperback.contest {swirly at sign} gmail.com

If you send a picture to that e-mail address, make sure to include:

  • The photo(s). (duh.)
  • Your name.
  • How you want the photo to be credited, if it’s different than your name.
  • Your mailing address. (Where to send your fabulous prize.)

Are you ready? I’m so ready. I think this is going to be awesome.

P.S. If folks want to suggest things that might make good prizes, I’m open to suggestions in the comments below.

    I was just wandering the internet, reminding myself to take anything I see with a grain of salt, seeing as it is April Fool’s Day. I’m guessing you’re serious about this one though. Because really, why wouldn’t everyone want to do this again?

    Also, will there be a Facebook thingy this time? That was pretty cool last time.

      Facebook doesn’t have the same sort of convenient picture sharing that it did back in 2008. Back then you could add pictures to an event. Now you can’t…

    How about a tiny lock of Patty beard? Nothing quite so unique as that. This could be a given with a hand written cert. of authenticity. Cheap, easy, a little creepy, but yeah whatever. You asked for ideas right? I don’t really want your beard Pat, but I bet someone does. Just saying.

    Oh, Pat…

    Please don’t tempt me so. I may have t dust off the old camera and see about snapping some shots.

    How much full frontal nudity is too much? I don’t think that was made clear last time.

    PS: The level of awesome that is WMF cannot be expressed through mere, pitiful words such as these. Please know that it is loved, and much appreciated. Thank you, Rothfuss.

        He did said he wouldn’t post pictures of things like climbing into a military base but… well I’m a Marine on Camp Lejeune; would you allow pictures of “sneaking” onto the base since I work in one? I could probably get a couple of off duty gate guards in on it. What do you think Captain Joe, want to come to NC and take some pictures climbing into a Marine Corps base?

    Question Pat…

    They didn’t have your book out here on the release date. Took the slow people at *insert local book chain here* just over a week to get it in. I couldn’t wait, so I bought an e-book reader that I’ve been wanting to read your book on. Are E-book readers displaying your book cover acceptable in your photo contest?

    • Posted April 1, 2011 at 8:25 AM | Permalink

      I am aware of the fact that many of you out there are what we refer to as “book deficient.”

      We’ll probably have to create a separate category for you poor sods. “Most E” or something of the sort.

          Funny thing – I can’t find a local copy anywhere! I’m probably going to order a copy of both 1 and 2 soon, but it’s just really weird I can’t find a copy. When it made #1 on the NYT list I was like ‘Oh cool… I should even be able to find it now! Even in like, grocery stores!’ … but nope! The stores have that shelf with the top 20 for the week and it never made it up there. The one claiming #1 I hadn’t even seen on the list – at least not in the last few weeks! What gives?

          • Posted April 1, 2011 at 8:09 PM | Permalink

            A lot of those “Bestseller” lists don’t have anything to do with the New York Times, unfortunately.

            I know this because I was a little disappointed myself when I went into Shopko and my book wasn’t up there at all….

    Your slightly used copy of Dragon Age 2 would make a good prize, particularly if you defaced it somehow. Although, with the tepid reviews it`s been getting, maybe just a keychain or some old batteries would be okay instead.

    By the way, I`m loving TWMF so far. The whole bit with Felurian in particular. Pretty steamy stuff. So I guess, by extension my wife is loving the book too, if you know what I mean. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink. Ahem.

  16. Posted April 1, 2011 at 11:41 AM | Permalink

    That picture of the dude running off the set of Public Enemies made my laughs echo through the library. True story. Lorren’s pissed…

    Prize ideas? This is my expertise…

    – handmade steampunk jewelry from etsy
    – voucher for Amyr tatoo at a big-name tatoo parlor
    – a 1-issue comic by you & naten taylor heckling Beowulf or The Edda
    – Fresh parmesean cheese from Ancona Italy
    – A postcard from wisconsin from you & the ms. & Oot
    – A Shaede or a lute-case/box with secret compartment or a cloak with lots of little pockets
    – rings of stone, iron, amber, wood or bone (last ones kinda gruesome, but hey, it’s in the verse, so…)
    – The full lyrics to Sabien
    – A broken tickle-me-elmo (it’d be cheaper than a working version)
    – 3 boxes of the macaroni you ate w/ corn
    – A fountain pen/sympathy lamp/story-knot that we might find in the stacks
    – OH, definitely a story knot, but like a whole story. THAT’d be cheap, and good. like swimming.
    – A seedling from some plant you started growing
    – one of those hallmark storybooks that record your voice as you read them, normally for grandparents & grandkids, but now for Rothfuss fans to hear him read “the princess and the frog” or w’e
    – stuff from the “incredibly bizarre” category on ebay
    – signed copy of first rough draft of chapters 7&8 from NOTW
    – local wisconsin honey
    – some old fishing lure from the early 1900s
    – the first book in the Pern series (people’ve read narnia, tolkien, martin, rowling, etc… not many read Pern – including me. Never heard of it until you).
    – One red paperclip with the condition that whoever gets it needs to trade up to something awesome and keep us updated on their progress
    – An arrowcatch (if the original) or The Bloodless (of 1 of _ )
    – A list of your top five favorite poems/songs and why with an analysis of each
    – dandelion seeds that were blowing in the wind outside your house
    – A set of silver pipes
    – A cheesy dollar-store greeting card with the longest string of the most superlative language you can think of to praise the receiver, “Let it be known that Niel is the awesomest…” signed, PR.
    – A belt that’s dyed red.
    – Scutten in a sealed tankard

    That’s all I got for now. (Is there a prize for most photo-contest-prize ideas? Cause I might get more…)

        @Erzberger: This Link is quite tricky. Scroll down a little and you can read that the release date is September 2011, although they write, you’ll get it on Tuesday, if you order now. It’s not supposed to make sense ;) If it would work, I’d be the first ordering!

          Living in Germany I bought it on amazon.de (link above in the comment of Erzberger) on March 15th (or sth around that date) when it still had a publishing date in March listed (instead of September as it has now). It arrived at my flat two days later, so I can tell you that a) yes, there is a paperback available out there already (at least it was for me and I have picture proof ;)), b) it is the UK version by Gollancz, London with 994 pages (Idk why they list 896 pages, though) and the cover you can see on the amazon page c) I LOVE it <3

          The contest sounds awesome and I'm excited to find a nice way to photograf the book with me or within a nice setting :D

    You can expect at least one sad photo from me. Silly Orbit forgot to include 60 pages of my copy of WMF so I might have to include a picture of a tear soaked copy brought on by my inability to finish reading the book in a proper fashion. It won’t only be gloomy photos from me, though. The book is too magnificient for me to stay sad for long.

    Not related to the contest I just thought I would let you know.. I just finished re-reading tNotW on vacation so I went to my local library to finally get The Wise Man’s Fear (I couldn’t bring myself to read my signed copy) and they didn’t have it. It wasn’t checked out, they just didn’t have it. WHAT?! I told them it hit #1 one on the NYT list how could they not have it. I wanted it – a week later they called and said my new book was in, they ordered copies for all the braches. Yeah, now people can get another good book at their local library!

    Posted April 3, 2011 at 4:56 PM | Permalink

    I just had a quick question for you Pat. After reading the WMF I went back to my book collection and read Tales of Dark Fantasy again.

    Why did you change Tempi’s name for “Vashet” in the Road to Levinshir? It would have fit just as well even after finishing WMF? As Kvothe says “I hate not understanding something.”
    You might also think of setting up a Q&A for the book!

    Without sounding too much like a scrub, I have a question. Is this contest still with the paperback copy of Name of the Wind? Or are you now doing it with The Wise Man’s Fear? The link still says “paperback.contest …etc”, yet this contest is right after book 2. Is this just like a “round 2″ contest, or is it a new one, with WMF?

    Hey Pat!
    It is possible to receive whatever amazing prize you give out of USA?
    I live in Spain, and I wonder it :P

    Wow… I’m guessing what ever was posted got taken down, because the last few comments seemed a bit harsh on Dani from spain. Did someone really post someone’s mothers obituary???

      Someone posted Pat’s personal info, his SO’s personal info, and what looked like the results to one of those paid-for ‘people search’ things (blood relatives, births & deaths in family, other stalkery things).

      Like I said; hopefully their IP was visible to any admins of this site and will be dealt with accordingly ;P

    Pat I love the work you are doing, the trouble is that your book will not leave Spain until November .. Well, I congratulate you on your great first book.

    I am really excited about this!
    I hate to say this… but I only just found out the book is out. I thought it was due to release in August (no idea where I got that from) and was devastated about waiting so long. Imagine my surprise when I found a copy of the book from the library in my mums room. I was convinced she had some sort of boot legged copy!
    Anyway I digress. I’ve now ordered two copies and have many ideas of pictures I want to take. HUGE fan. Love your work and that book got me through first year computer science in University! Kept me sane. For that I thank you.

    Gotta see if I can get a repeat win on this one, that would be awesome. My photos are a sequel to the original.

    Prizes? I’d say advance copy of Book 3 when its available would be awesome.

    Just submitted my contribution and for once the proverb “Better safe than sorry” does make sense. I planned on linking the pictures in the mail as well es attaching them, just to be sure – and forgot to attach them before sending.

    As for the present, maybe a sketch of Kvothe?
    It’s always interesting to see how the author imagines his characters. For some reason, I always find myself thinking of Axel from Kingdom Hearts with less spikey hair… O_ô

    Pat;
    Does this picture contest have any sort of specification on WHICH book we have to take the picture with? I’d like to use my lovely hard-cover of The Wise Man’s Fear…

    Also, is it ok if we do something dangerous if we are trained professionals?

    Pat;
    I was wondering could i still add some photos because I only found about the contest now. Could i possibly add some photos by the 23rd or 22nd?

    Thanks

    Pat, persons outside the United States (like Brazil) may participate?
    pleeease say yes!!!!
    And I think the price might be one Eolian T-shirt with the Eolian Talent Pipes Necklace and the Draccus Poster signed…
    Or (to be more audacious ) , one character (on next book of Kingkiller Chronicles or other future book) with the name of the winner (names are important, so it would be the most excited prize ;D)
    XOXO
    Camila
