Contribute to Thoughts Of You a Dennis Wilson fanzine & win a Dennis Wilson & The Beach Boys bundle.

Hi to everybody reading this whether you're Dennis Wilson/Beach Boys fans (or just casually interested in them), got here from a comping forum/site (this competition is comper friendly) or just curious.
Competition is worldwide & ends at 11:59pm GMT 31st of January 2018. Entry link via gleam is near the bottom of the post (please read the info/instructions & t&cs first).

I'm running this prize draw to hopefully encourage contributions/submission to my fanzine Thoughts Of You -
all you need to do to enter is to write or create anything, long or short, that's about or inspired (however loosly) by any aspect of Dennis Wilson, his life/death & surrounding mythology, his songs or related aspects of the Beach Boys for possible publication in a pdf/print fan magazine. Photos symbolising love/romance/heartbreak or themes of the sea'll count if you can connect them to his lyrics/life etc. Be as serious or as silly or micky taking as you want. Update: Written entries can be as long or as short as you want, a sentence on your favourite song (for example) is fine.

(I'm hosting this competition on my old mostly abandoned livejournal because I haven't got a proper site for the fanzine yet & needed it to be off a social network.)

Prizes are 1x bundle containing an official 50 Years Of Good Vibrations USB bookmark featuring Mike Love's  re-recording of Sloop John B over The Beach Boys vintage promo, a sticker of Rory Lucey's Two Lane Blacktop inspired art of Dennis Wilson as The Mechanic, + 3 random Beach Boys trading cards (Panini 2013). & 2x runners up prizes of stickers & trading cards.


Comper Friendly

Anyone can enter as long as they've followed the rules & submitted relevant content.

ETA: anyone who enters without actually emailing me anything for the zine will be disqualified.
Full terms & conditions are here.

Thinking of running a zine blog comp

Thinking of running a competition to encourage submissions to my Dennis Wilson zine (see previous post) - got some Brian / Dennis (Wilson) / Beach Boys related things I don't really need & could give away. Interested?

Not sure whether to do it on merit or just pick winner at random from submissions - it'll be comper friendly & I'll post the full details of how to enter, t&cs/rules & prize photos here on this blog, when it happens.

Possible prizes (when I manage to find/dig them out); a Brian Wilson signed vinyl copy of No Pier Pressure; one of the revised versions of Scott Wilson & Karen Powell's Son Of A Beach Boy (about Scott's life and his memories of his dad); Two Lane Blacktop inspired art stickers of Dennis as The Mechanic;.a (Mike Love) Beach Boys USB memory card w/ a new version of Sloop John B over archive video; and some dupe cards from Panini's 2013(? iirc) Beach Boys trading card set.

My current zine project - Thoughts Of You, a Dennis Wilson fanzine.

(updated repost from We Make Zines etc.)
Working on a Dennis Wilson/Beach Boys fanzine. Anyone interested in contributing or have any questions/suggestions, message me here <on wemakezines> or <reply below>, comment via facebook, twitter or email dwfanzineATgmailDOTcom
<tumblr alerts and pos recieving asks/submissions/messages has been glitchy>.
I’ll work out a proper call for submissions later, but am looking for artwork, photos, essays/reviews anything really, as long as it’s Dennis focused. Provisionally pdf version and b/w print editions, then maybe a colour print edition if I have enough money & enough people are interested. Contributors’ll get copies & it’ll be sold for a homelessness charity.

Highlights in case the full post is a bit too tldr:

"I want to make this publication a place for you to freely share your thoughts, opinions, tributes, art, photos and news/info on Dennis & a Dennis focused take on The Beach Boys, plus raise money for homelessness / anti-poverty charities."

"I'm currently working on issue one - waiting to hear back from some potential contributors, inc artists - but need more people to send things in. You'll get a free copy of the finished zine if your content is used."

"If you want to link/share/promote this page or the zine anywhere Dennis / Beach Boys or zine related (or elsewhere), please go ahead - just don't spam, thanks. & I'm happy for you to use or repost the web flyer & banners linked to this post as long as you link to one of the zine accounts."
