Folks Vie For Ugly Trophy
Oddly enough, people actually want this oddball trophy.
Friday, April 2, 2010 17:19 GMTSHERMAN OAKS, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) The ugliest trophies are the most sought after.
Thats the case with the trophy April Winchell will be awarding to contestants of her book cover contest, which celebrates the release of her book, Regretsy: Where D.I.Y. Meets WTF (Villard), out Tuesday (Apr. 6).
The book is based on Winchells hugely popular website, regretsy.com, which features photos and commentary of the weird and regrettable crafts people sell on Etsy.
Shes looking for someone to create a funny book cover for the debut and theyll be rewarded regrettably, of course.
The winner will get a huge trophy covered in ridiculous knick- knacks from Etsy, including a drawing of a half-naked woman being held by a bear, plastic pieces of poop, toy ponies, and images of Michael Jackson.
Although there are also cash prizes, Winchell says that what everyone really wants is the ugly trophy.
She adds, I cant blame them. Its amazing.
