The Old West Festival ONLINE Costume Contest


The Old West Festival runs each Fall, just east of Cincinnati on the way to Batavia, Ohio, and for the past two years it has hosted an official Steampunk Weekend in partnership with the Pandora Society. During these weekends we have hosted costume contests, invention contests, NERF duels, Steampunk music bands, and been on hand to inform the curious public about “what IS this whole Steampunk thing?” This year, however, the Steampunk Weekend is going even bigger and here’s how you can win a prominent part of it.

We are looking for the perfect picture that exemplifies Western Steampunk, thus the costume contest. Winning entrants will receive the following:

  • His or Her picture used on promotional materials for the Old West Festival Steampunk Weekend.
  • Two weekend passes to the Old West Festival Steampunk Weekend (October 4th & 5th, 2014)
  • Pandora merchandise 

Clearly from the prizes this is a contest that appeals more to those within driving distance of Cincinnati, but the contest is still open to anyone over 18.

Drew Deimling, owner and show director of the Old West Festival will provide the Judge’s Choice for this contest, and YOU will provide the Popular Vote.

To enter, just follow the instructions on the form below and submit to us your best Steampunk Western outfit; it’s that simple, but here are a few rules anyway . . .

  • Must be 18 years of age or older to enter.
  • One person per photo. No group shots.
  • You may only submit one entry per person.
  • No illegal activity, sexually explicit material.
  • No use of third party logos and no copy written material, UNLESS you have written permission from the owner/photographer of the picture (this can be done via email)
  • By submitting a photo you are giving Pandora Promotions LLC permission (and that of the photographer) to use that image for promotional materials.
  • Prizes will be awarded within 60 days of selection of winner(s) being announced.
  • No substitutes allowed for prizes and they are not transferable.
  • All federal, state and local laws and regulations apply.

The deadline for entries is midnight (EST) on August 10th, 2014. Voting runs from August 11th to August 17th, and the results of the Popular Vote and the Judge’s Choice will be revealed on August 18th.
