[CLOSED] Zombie of the Year Contest!

This contest is now closed. Tyler and Rhonny are our Male and Female Zombies of the Year! Congratulations! I’ll get in touch with you to get you your prizes.

Here’s a chance to win Burial Ground: Nights of Terror and more!

All month long here at Blood Sucking Geek we are celebrating zombies with Month of the Living Dead.
Now we need to choose the Blood Sucking Geek’s Male AND Female Zombie of the Year!

Zombie of the Year Contest

Zombie of the Year Contest

We are looking for you to adorn your best zombie outfit, apply your zombie makeup, and take your picture! Readers will have the opportunity to ‘thumbs up’ and then vote for their favorites.  So submit your picture soon, and share the post once we put it up!

Here’s what you do:
  1. Take a picture of yourself in your zombie best.
  2. Send your photo with your name (and what you would like to be referred to as publicly) and an intro to your photo to jonnydead@bloodsuckinggeek.com.
  3. Recruit your friends from Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere to vote for you!
  4. (optional) – Leave a comment here so I can verify that we’ve received your entry!

That’s it! That’s all you have to do, but here is how the rest of the contest goes…

Here’s what happens next (don’t worry, we handle the steps here):
  1. We will take your photo, preferred name, and introduction and create a post.
  2. Blood Sucking Geek readers will have the opportunity to vote for their favorites (use our convenient ‘share’ buttons to get your friends from Facebook, Twitter, and other social sites to vote for you!).
  3. To even the playing field, we will setup a poll-style vote the first week of October on which everyone will vote for one favorite.  These results will be combined with the ‘thumbs up’ votes to determine the top three.
  4. We will take the top three male and the top three female contestants (from your votes) and let the judges pick our winners.

All entries must be in by Sunday, September 30th at 11:59 MDT!

The Prize

The male and female contestants that the judges choose as the winners will not only get bragging rights and the title of BSG’s Zombie of the Year 2012, but will also receive this great prize package that was donated generously by our sponsor for this event: Shriek Show!

Zombie of the Year Prize Package

Here’s what it consists of:

  • Zombi 2 t-shirt
  • Flesh for the Beast graphic novel
  • Burial Ground The Nights of Terror*

*We have one Burial Ground DVD and one Burial Ground Blu-ray available. So we will need to figure out who gets which one between the two winners. If both winners are able to play Blu-ray, we will default the Blu-ray to the Female Zombie of the Year (because we’re chivalrous around here).
