Squidoo Sports Lens Challenge

Why Squidoo:

Because it is the easiest way to build a webpage. You just pick a few modules that will enable you to feature the content you want, and you can literally build a lens in less than 20 minutes. In fact, I built this one about fellow fannation community member hyped78 in less than 12 minutes, and it's a great way to help you build up your visibility and notoriety on fannation.

Also, I should tell you now. You CAN get paid for your lens. Most lenses don't make much money, but your lens will display advertisements and you will receive a portion of the ad revenue. You can either a.) donate it to charity or b.) get a check from Squidoo.

About:

I have invited some of the top fannation community members, bloggers, and throwdowners to be apart of the Squidoo Sports Lens Challenge. Design 3 lenses in the sport category (or just one if you want) by July 31st. What kind of sports-related lens you ask? I have come up with three categories as starting points. You can create all of your lenses in one category, or spread them out any way you choose.

Categories:

1.)    Inspirational Sports Stories or Personalities - Does Jason McElwain inspire you? What about Kirk Gibson's walk-off home run? Maybe Tiger Wood's recent performance at Torrey Pines. Whatever it is make a lens about it!
Example: Child Super Heroes (First Two Are Sports-Related)

2.)    Weird/Non-Mainstream Sports - Do you play sports that aren't necessarily considered sports by most? Frisbee golf? Chess boxing?
Example: Frisbee/Disc Golf

3.)    Greatest Sports Rivalries - Ohio State vs. Michigan, Yankees vs. Red Sox. Make a lens documenting your favorite sports rivalry.
Example: UCLA vs. USC

 What Do I Win:

At the end of the competition I will purchase the highest three ranked lenses from you for $25 (first place), $15 (second place), and $10 (third place), provided that these lens rank in the top 10,000 lenses (which isn't very hard to do, and I will provide tips on the The Chin Music Sports Blog along the way). Now, provided that you obtain a top 1,000 lensrank you may choose to hold onto your lenses, that's fine, I will default to the 4th place lenses and so forth.

Deadline: July 31st. Get Started Now!

You can also check out the group here, and start a lens from the make a new lens button!

NOTE: I DO NOT receive any monetary reward, commission, etc. for this event!
