A much simpler challenge than ZARGA V.

Create a tagline for the podcasts.  PM your submissions to me, and I'll arrange blind voting.

For instance:

Pseudopod, the best horror podcast on the internet.  (Simple, yes)
Escapepod, bringing you tomorrow's best SF yesterday.  (Corny)
Podcastle, no chain mail bikinis here!  (Not entirely true)

I love this one, actually.

Podcastle, no chain mail bikinis here!  (Not entirely true)

Not true, but very funny.

Pseudopod, the bad news is we've taken over.  The good news is we have pie.
Escapepod, from the world of tomorrow to the puny human mp3 players of today
Podcastle, the fantasy revolution will not be televised, but you can listen to it for free

Or perhaps

Pseudopod, the horror!
Escape Pod, the shiny!
Podcastle, the fantastic!

Or perhaps

Pseudopod, listen or we'll recite razor commercials outside your house at 3am.  In fact, we might do that if you DO listen.

I like the mp3 one, Al.  Everyone else, please remember to PM the entries to me.  I haven't figured out how to pick the winner yet, but it will involve forum voting in one form or another.

The prize, as always, will be a disc of your choice from www.poddisc.com.  But maybe we can talk Ben into printing some tshirts....

Escapepod, listen or we'll strip you naked and throw you out the air lock!

Pseudopod, listen to our podcast or we'll sacrifice you to the Elder Gods.

These aren't submissions, just helping with the creative process.

Ok, some more details:

Submissions will be accepted until July 31st.  Judging will take place after that.

I will need 3 volunteers, 1 for each podcast.  I will forward them to you and you will narrow them down to 10.  Should anyone actually involved in one of the podcasts wish to help, they get priority.

It's not official yet, but it's highly likely that there will be Tshirts made for each podcast.  The winning tag line for each podcast will get a free tshirt.  These will be limited editions and numbered!  Contest winners will get Tshirt #1.  Other contestants will have a chance to order shirts before the public in general does.

:D can/will the shirts have the winning tagline on them? with the logo/theme for the corresponding podcast? cuz... that would be awesome, and i would totally get one.

and uuuuhhh i'll volunteer with Pseudopod if there arent any other takers :P

oh and for submissions do we have to send in a tagline for all three podcasts or can we choose which one/ones we wanna do?

I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

The shirts will have the winning tag line.  I'm working out the details on logos.  The more detailed we make the shirts, the more they will cost.  I'll provide those details when I have specifics.  The tag lines will not be limited to these shirts, but the shirts themselves will be limited editions.

You can submit for any of the podcasts, and for Escape Artists in general.  You do not need to submit an entry for all of them.  I'm going to set the number of submissions per podcast at 10 per person. 

THE FIRST PERSON TO SEND ME A SUBMISSION GETS THE PRIZE IF THERE ARE DUPLICATE ENTRIES.

Yes they have, and I've offered some alternatives, but I think Ben just needed some help.  He's got a lot on his plate.

Maybe this thread should be updated for those who aren't interested in the contests forum.

Remember, people, you can submit 10 tag lines per podcast and 10 tag lines for Escape Artists in general.

I've received a few stinkers, and am thinking about listing the worst submissions after the contest is over, anonymously, of course.  I wonder, though, if some of you are trying to be horrible.

Escape pod:  Where the men are men and the sheep are electric.
Pseudopod:  I went to hell and all I got was this creepy podcast.
Podcastle:  Saving virgins from Pseudopod.

Not enough submissions?  What do we need to do?  Extend the deadline and talk it up on the podcasts?  (Which we would have done already but [insert whining here about being busy].)

Alright, submission deadline has been extended.  Probably until the end of August, but not 100% guaranteed.

I am going to forward the entries to the judges in August.  I'll probably start around the end of the first week.   Judges, be sure to get your submissions to me before then.

Still looking for one more judge.  The judges will narrow the field to 10 per podcast and 10 for Escape Artists in general.  I'll take the lists and combine them, so we'll be voting on 10 to 30 per category.

Bonus:  If you submit your entries before August 1st, you can enter up to 10 per category.  After that, it will be 5 submissions per person per category.

Will be away from the computer until next week at a minimum.  Send you submissions as per instructions.  Still need one more judge.  I will forward submissions to judges when I get back.

We don't have internet at the new house yet, so Tinkerbell will be keeping my air card.

Ok, folks, we haven't gotten very many submissions since the Metacast.  Tell your friends, and send in your tag lines.  I guarantee they won't be the worst we've seen!

Also, we still need artwork.  Send your 1 color drawings to artwork@escapeartists.net.  Simple is better for this run, as we're trying to keep costs down.  However, if you have some awesome stuff it might get featured on future shirts as well.  If your artwork is chosen for the current crop of shirts, you'll get a free shirt.  If it's used in the future, you will receive royalties. 

If there is a piece of artwork that is promising, but not quite there, we'll let you know so you can tweak it.

I have received the choices from one of the judges.  The other two ::cough::bdoomed::cough::izzardfan::cough:: have not gotten back to me.

I think we're going to have to go with 2 rounds of voting.

Round 1, everybody gets 3 votes.  Top 5 choices advance to round 2 where everybody only gets one vote.

Polls will go up when I get the top 10 from the other judges.  There could be up to 30 for each category. 

There may not be a prize for Escape Artists in general, as we did not get many submissions for that.  We'll see.  The poll for that category will be 1 vote only, and one of the options will be "none of the above".

Feel free to pester any judges that have been dragging their feet...

Polls are going up.  Assume any grammatical errors are mine.  I did not select any entries, the 3 judges did.  All I did was forward every submission that was received prior to deadline.

Vote for up to 3 choices in round 1.  Top selections will move to round 2 where forumites can vote for 1 entry.  Unless there is a tie, round 2 will determine the winner.

In the Escape Artists poll, you can vote for only 1 and the top selection will be the winner.  None of the above is an option.

I am removing myself from the Podcastle contest.  I followed the rules that I set forth.  Again, Rachel ends a discussion because she feels it is over.  Sorry, NOBODY else on this forum could get away with that.  I did not even receive a courtesy message explaining what happened.  I will have nothing to do with Podcastle. 

If that means that the rest of EA does not want my assistance, I will forward the names of the people that submitted the entries that have been selected so far.

I'm shutting up now before I cross a line.

Here is the entire list of submissions, I am not revealing authors, and they should not reveal themselves until after the contest is over:


PSEUDOPOD! Putting the 'pod' in podcast.
PSEUDOPOD. Quite possibly the last thing you'll ever hear.


EscapePod - Because Reality is a Crutch for Those Who Can't Cope With Science Fiction
EscapePod - Next Century's Reality, Now in Audio Form
PodCastle - Open the Door Gently, Or She Will Kick You on the Way Out
PodCastle - Give Up Your Ears and Fly
PodCastle - Knock on the Sky and Listen to the Sounds
PodCastle - We Love Food Fights. Just Don't Let the Food Win
PseudoPod - We Got Places to Go and People to Kill
PseudoPod - The Undead Have Risen... And They've got the Munchies
PseudoPod - Something is Coming from Beyond the Stars... And it's Big
PseudoPod - Stay Inside, Lock Your Doors, Bar the Windows, Arm Yourself, Listen to a Story


Escape Pod should be "Listen carefully... it's story time."

 Escape Artists - Trap them between your ears

       Another pea in Escape Pod


"AND DID THOSE FEET, IN ANCIENT TIMEWALK UPON ENGLAND'S MOUNTAINS GREEN?!?"

Pseudopod
The sound of fear (almost certainly already done to death)
The ice in your veins
The splinter in your mind
Maggots for your mind
Beautiful terror
The zombie in your closet
The weekly assault on your sanity
It's what lives under the bed
The definition of darkness
...it's waiting for you.

Escape Pod
Not just spaceships
More than space opera
Not your father's Star Wars/Asimov/whatever
Broaden your event horizons
Think you know sci-fi? Think again.
Get your jetpacks here!
An infinity of possibilities
The future has arrived. Again.
Your lifeboat to Tatooine.
Realizing your quantum possibilities.

Podcastle
Charting the fantastic
Now with 37% less elves!
The Conan of Fantasy Literature. Umm, wait...
No, not that kind of fantasy!!
From the fantastic to the sublime
It's not just about the unicorns
Broadcasting from behind your mind. (WHAT???)
New worlds aborning...
From a strangely familiar place
Fantasy for the now.


If you can get permission from Charles Stross, you really, really need to have an Escape Pod shirt that reads “Brains, fresh brains for baby Jesus!” with a picture of the farm creature from EP206: Rogue Farm.  Put the EP logo on the other side (front or back) from the side with the farm and the quote.

Sometimes, EVIL wears a t-shirt

Pseudopod: the Power of Horror Compels You!

EscapePod: 3, 2, 1,  Story time

Or perhaps

Pseudopod, listen to our podcast or we'll sacrifice you to the Elder Gods.

One of my favorites, though it wouldn't have made a good tagline, was PP, more harrowing than a pregnancy scare.

Some of these are fantastic! Is the voting open to the general public or being handled by specific vetters?

Oh, great and mighty Alasdair, Orator Maleficent, He of the Silvered Tongue, guide this humble fangirl past jumping up and down and squeeing upon hearing the greatness of Thy voice.
Oh mighty Mur the Magnificent. I am not worthy.

1)  PsuedoPod: Your best defense against the zombie invasion
2) Podcastle new school fantasy.
3) Escape Pod, more fun than a barrel of time-travelling monkey-robots
4) Escapepod, listen or we'll strip you naked and throw you out the air lock!
5) Escape Pod It's Story Time
6) Escape Artists, Have Fun!
7) Podcastle, no chain mail bikinis here!


These were my favorites in numerical order. I also adored the Hot aurel text thing- just didn't see it fitting any specific cast. :(

Eh, if in doubt (especially about the PodCastle poll, although Heradel please correct me if it's also true for the others), feel free to vote again.  We had some, shall we say, technical difficulties with the poll.

The first Podcastle poll is defunct, so go to take two to vote ( http://forum.escapeartists.net/index.php?topic=2911.0 ). All the other polls are open, so please vote.
