68: Utilitarian Pen Holder Unlimited

Posted on Jun 4, 2019 by in Magnet Limit, No Limit

Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.
-A. A. Milne

The June 2019 contest is a pen holder utility contest. What’s a pen holder? Something on a desk that holds pens and keeps things organized. Some of us may benefit from them. Use as many magnets as you need, any brand accepted, just make sure they’re all 5mm spheres, and that your construction can hold pens, and possibly other pen-like objects such as pencils or markers.

Summary of requirements:

  • No limit to the number of magnets
  • Any brand of 5mm magnet spheres accepted
  • No photo manipulation besides basic contrast/brightness levels.

As usual, the judges will be your peers. Pay attention to resolution, focus, lighting as framing. Use not your bright reflective flash, but instead a self timer and a tripod (or stand.) Sharp, high resolution pictures are preferred. $300 in prizes is up for grabs and distribution will depend on participation. There will be at least six winners. Prizes will be announced with judging. Everything you submit goes into the public domain. Submission deadline is June 30th, 2019.

Of course, the first and foremost requirement, is that you have fun!
