Enter our Second Annual Wes Anderson Inspired Halloween Costume Contest. We are giving away at least two prize packages, which include some great items that Wes fans should covet:
- Noah and the Whale’s fantastic new album Peaceful, the World Lays Me Down
- Derek Hill’s great book Charlie Kaufman and Hollywood’s Merry Band of Pranksters, Fabulists and Dreamers: An Excursion Into the American New Wave
- Our good friend Coin Laundry Loser’s EP Summer, including his Wes-inspired song “Edward Appleby”
To enter, upload a picture of yourself in your Wes-inspired costume to Flickr (registration required) and tag it with “rushmoreacademy2008” (if, for whatever reason, you can’t use Flickr, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to make alternative arrangements). Who will you be? Peter Whitman? Max Fischer? Steve Zissou? Wes Anderson himself? Bob Yeoman? Dart Boy? Check out some of the entries from last year.
Entries will be voted on by the staff of the Rushmore Academy. By submitting an entry, you:
a) confirm that you are eighteen (18) years of age or older and that it is legal for you to post your picture.
b) give permission to rushmoreacademy.com to post your entry on its public website.
The contest submission period ends November 7, 2008 at midnight EST. Contest rules, stipulations, and prizes are subject to change at the sponsor’s discretion. RushmoreAcademy.com cannot control the content of Flickr.com. Please report inappropriate entries to the Flickr administrators. Direct inquiries to edwardappleby @ yankeeracers.org (no spaces).
Thanks to Sneak Attack Media, Nick Flora, and Derek Hill for sponsoring this year’s contest.
