Valentine's Day Dye Contest!

Over the years, we've discussed having more than just one dye contest per year. Okthrowberfest has always been king, but we need more contests where our creativity can shine together without the massive payout of Okthrowberfest.

And so, I offer you a

Valentine's Day Dye Contest

Dye anything along the lines of Valentine's Day! That's as descript and as vague as possible Interpret any way you like!

The only requirement is that it is a new dye; no re-hashing of dyes you did years ago to throw in here. You may re-dye an old design if you have one you've done before that would fit the contest.

Just like Okthrowberfest, there is no need to send in the disc. Take a good picture and post it in this thread, and that's it! If you don't know how to post a pic, just send me a PM and I'll do it for you.

I pulled the prizes below from my personal dye stock. As mentioned above, I'm not trying to make this a massive contest and wrangle up sponsors and donors, just a little winter contest to whet our creative and competitve appetites.

Each disc is from a different manufacturer and plastic.

All discs are 10/10, unthrown, and excellent dye canvasses.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.

Left to right, top row:

Latitude64 Goldline Flow, black stamp, 167g
Innova Star Wraith, pinkish foil stamp, 175g
MVP Neutron Servo, black stamp, 156g

Bottom row:

Discraft ESP Nuke, rainbow stamp, 173g
Legacy Pinnacle Rampage, never stamped, 171g
Salient Liquid Antidote, never stamped, 177g





We will vote on the entries in an open vote thread, and the top three winners will each get two of the prize discs. First place will have first choice, second chooses next, and third place takes the remaining two.

Deadline for entries is Valentine's Day at midnight Eastern! (Saturday night, February 14th)

Good luck to all!

And if anyone was wondering, I am exempt from the prizes. Should be obvious, but this IS the internet

Sweet!

I got an idea of something I've wanted to do for a while that actually fits the theme. This is exactly what I needed to get myself to actually do it.

Excellent!

I had a feeling that this would be a good time for a little throwdown.
Colder weather, shorter days, and for those in the snow areas, lots of pink discs that could do well to dye and compete with!

It'll be cool to see a switch from the macabre dyes of Octhrowberfest. Looking forward to some great work from all who enter.

(Wishes he could dye worth a darn to enter contests like these)

Well let's not rule out macabre all together. My idea only loosely fits the theme and isn't exactly cheery. But I'd rather not make a valentines card in disc form.

Fair enough. Either way, I'm sure the dyes that are entered here will impress.

I would love to play.... but I have been busy with a new course... and my dye shop isn't setup yet from the move. Excited to see some new designs here, though.

What's the new course? I'm headed up to Cinci in a few months, Lexington is on the way, worth a stop?

I've been slacking on dyeing lately, so this will be a good excuse to get back to it. Thanks for setting it up Bennett!
