Topic tags/keywords: contest weekend project article ryan shervill canadian home workshop

As most know, I am with Canadian Home Workshop Magazine, and as of yesterday we together launched a contest called “Weekend In The Workshop”.

Essentially, you come up with an idea and plan for a weekend project and submit it. There will be a voting process, and the winning entry will win a trip to my shop (airfare, hotel, car rental, etc) where we will build your project together. In addition to the two days of one-on-one with me, I will help turn your project into an article for the magazine….you get to see what it’s like being followed around by a camera while making sawdust :)

Details: Details and entry here!
This is for hobbiests of all skill levels, so don’t worry if you are just a beginner…I’m there to help.

ETA Sorry guys, only open to Canadians :(

I hope you guys come up with some cool ideas!

I’ve been to Quebec. Is that part of Canada, or it’s own country? Most of my car was made in Canada also.

Since I live in Florida and put up with your Grandmas passing off your deflated coins and driving 20mph in a 60mph zone for years….I’ll submit that legally I’m entitled to enter.

However, I WILL NOT accept my prize from the Queen…or Don Cherry.

Does being married to a Canadian move me to the top of the list? Just kidding. Hope this project goes well for your magazine and the “winner”

You should also read the fine print re this contest if you ever want to submit your project elsewhere or even post it on the web.

I don’t want to rain on anyone’s parade but this seems a bit out of place here on a “sponsored website”.

*Finalists must consent to the use of their projects, photographs, names, places of residence, likeness and voice without compensation, in print, radio, online or televised publicity or promotion relating to the contest.

And from the site owners this:

9.2. All the items on Transcontinental Media’s Internet sites (including, without limitation, the texts, articles, photographs, images, illustrations, audio and video excerpts, software, etc.) are protected by copyright and belong to Transcontinental Media or third parties acting as content providers.
