Back in April I post a Period Dramas Keep Calm Contest (check out that post if you're not familiar with Keep Calm Posters). The game this week is a contest similar to that but with a twist. The twist is that there's somethings in period dramas that you just can't keep calm about - whether it's something verrrrrry exciting or something rawther vexing!
In this contest your entries must be related to your favorite period dramas and they must begin with the phrase "Don't Keep Calm And..." or end with the saying "...and I can't keep calm".
Here's a couple examples of Period Drama related Don't Keep Calms:
|Based on Anne of Green Gables|
|Based on Alice in Wonderland|
|Based on Cranford|
Poster made by Miss Elizabeth Bennet of Elegance of Fashion
|This is just to give an example of the "...And I Cannot Keep Calm" option.|
Entries & Rules:
- Create your own witty posters beginning with "Don't Keep Calm And..." or ending "...And I Can't Keep Calm" that are related to your favorite period dramas (related to Austen, Dickens, Gaskell, Alcott, Montgomery, Downton Abbey or other period films).
- You may enter up to three Don't Keep Calm posters.
- Post your Don't Keep Calms on your blog or website and leave the link in a comment, or if you don't have a blog leave the image URL(s) in a comment, or you can e-mail your entries to me.
- When you comment please tell which period drama(s) your sayings come from.
- Contest will be open for entries from now until 12:00 AM (EST) on Friday, November 23rd at which time I will choose my five favorite posters and will post them and a poll for everyone to vote for their favorite. Winners will be posted Sunday, November 25th.
- Sayings may be related to any period drama but keep in mind that the more well-known or witty the saying the better chance it will have of being generally agreeable.
- Please keep your entries clean and upbeat.
- Photos on your posters are encouraged by not necessary.
And one more thing...have fun! Lots of fun!
I am very much looking forward to seeing your entries! :)
