Fandom Chess is here!!
Ever wanted your name or face all over a HUGE game of chess? Want to promote your website, or give a shout out to your favorite fanfic writer? How about be the selfless human being you're always trying to be and donate to a great charity? Well here is your chance to do just that!
In this life-size game of fandom chess, Prophecy
puts a new twist on an old fan favourite. Groups bid to win a place for their logo on our giant chess board, and get the attention of hundreds of people in fandom throughout Prophecy
— particularly during the Wizard Chess event, when the life-sized board will be used for game, after game, after game. It's like a star on the Walk of Fame
One may ask, how in Merlin's name will this work?
The bid competition starts with a call to action from you to your group members. Raise money toward a Fandom Chess bid and submit it as a lump sum to Prophecy
, along with the name of the programming session(s) or Prophecy event(s) you’d like to sponsor. Sponsorships will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis; contact the sponsorship team to discuss the wide variety of opportunities available.
Spaces on the chessboard are ranked in order of each piece’s value. There is a reserve of $500 US on the most valuable space (the King) and $50 US on the least valuable (the white spaces). All submissions will earn a place on the Fandom Chess board, if there is room; if not, the highest bids will receive places. The higher your bid, the more you’ll be able to sponsor, and the more valuable chess pieces that will represent your group on the board!
Gather your group members together and work out a bid! Submissions are due by June 10, 2007, but they may be added to and revised at any time up until that deadline. So, send your bid in early and set the stakes in this competition! All bids should be submitted to email@example.com with “Fandom Chess Bid” in the subject line. Once we receive your bid, you’ll get updates on the standings as they change. You can also request to be added to the update list if you haven’t yet sent in your bid, by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Time for submissions is drawing near, so get a move on already, and see you at Prophecy
