2008 was all about declaring yourself - Team Edward or Team Jacob - and rocking the vote. Novel Novice Twilight used the 2008 U.S. Nat'l elections as inspiration for our highly successful Team Edward vs. Team Jacob Campaign.
Looking ahead at 2009, we turn to our original inspiration - using Twilight as a way to get people (young people, especially) educated about and involved in politics. And this year in real-life politics there is a renewed effort for bipartisanship. Here at NNT, we want the same thing for Team Edward and Team Jacob. That's why we’re excited to launch the Team Switzerland Project.
All this year, we are inviting fans to submit their videos, artwork, poetry and other creative works to show how Team Edward and Team Jacob can get along.
Every Friday this year is Team Switzerland Day - and throughout the year, we'll share everything we receive - as well as revealing exciting, new parts of the Team Switzerland Project.
And to kick things off, we have an awesome Team Switzerland Project Contest, sponsored by Blue Foundation - the band behind the song "Eyes on Fire" from the Twilight Soundtrack.
Send us your artwork or videos promoting Team Switzerland Project. The deadline to enter is Friday, March 27 th by midnight (PST). Send all entries to: email@example.com
We'll share everything we receive on NNT. But NNT staff will choose the top 5 - then YOU will get to vote on the 1 st , 2 nd and 3 rd place winners. Winners will receive the following awesome prizes from Blue Foundation:
1 st place: Blue Foundation Sweatshirt, LP & CD
2 nd place: Blue Foundation T-shirt & free digital download of the Twilight soundtrack
3 rd place: Blue Foundation T-shirt
And be sure to check back at Novel Novice Twilight throughout the year for the latest on the Team Switzerland Project.
