Poets of the Fall Competition (Sponsored by Mad Supply)

It’s competition time! Mad Supply, who operates Poets of the Fall's store, has very generously donated a series of wonderful prizes (approximately €100 in total!) for our event.

Poets of the Fall are incredibly artistic from their CD artwork to the lyrics, their instrumental tracks to music videos. This competition focuses on the band’s and your own personal inner artist. We are looking for photographs inspired by the band’s songs. It could be a photo of a place, a craft, cosplay, or reenactment. You can write lyrics in an artistic way, or even recreate one of the album's covers.

Send your photographs to alanwakethesuddenstop (at) gmail (dot) com. If possible, please upload the entries to a website such as photobucket, flickr or Picasa with a direct link pasted in an email. In your email don't forget to tell us about your photo!
Numerous entries are allowed.

Deadline: Saturday 25th May 2013 (23:59 BST)
Announcement of Winners: Sunday 26th May 2013


We thought it would be nice to go back to the band's origins, so we're giving the first prize winner a Signs of Life "12 vinyl. The winner will also get to choose a t-shirt of their choice (both design and size) from the Poets of the Fall Webstore. There will be two runner ups who will each receive a t-shirt in the design and size of their own choosing.

Major thank you to Mad Supply for donating the prizes and Samuli for be incredible!


Way cool competition, thanks for organizing this! I hope many people will take part. :) Retweeted!

Excuse me, but does it HAVE to be photography or can it also be other kinds of mediums such as digital art, traditional art, ect,ect?

Thank you for the retweet and kind words! :)

As for the question regarding the entry type. It is primarily a photograph competition, however you can also play around with that idea. If you want to you can combine both photographs and digital art. You can also have a collage with different photographs which are edited together to make the final piece.

Hopefully this answers your question!
Thanks for your interest in the competition! :)

How many entries can you submit??

Hello! Where will can we see the works of all participants? :)

Hey Nataly!

At the moment I'm only planning on posting the winning entries late next month, but I was thinking about asking all participants if they wouldn't mind having their photos included in a new fan section I'm hoping to set up on the site. (More information about it here: ) From what I've seen so far a lot of them are personal, so I just want to double check with everyone entering before posting their images on the site.

So in answer to your question, hopefully you will get to see a few soon.

I had sent you my entry but I haven't received any reply yet...

Hey SeizetheDay!

Sorry for the late reply, I've been pretty ill recently so getting through my inbox has been quite a struggle. I've managed to reply now to all the ones I've received!

Good luck! :)

Hey Anon,
Sorry I didn't see your message earlier regarding the number of entries you can send in. You can enter as many times as you like, but you can only win one prize. :)

Sorry for being so impatient but I had to be sure whether it reached you or not...

This sounds really fun!

So, what's up with this competition? :)
