If there's one thing we've learned while doing this show… Boys. Are. Dumb.
Josh and I are no exception. So a huge shoutout to Bethany who wrote in today to set us straight.
I know you?ve both been debating mugs for a long while now, and that Matt is struggling with design. I also keep thinking about all the drawing contests you had early on in the show (they are fresh in my mind since I just listened to them) and it?s clear you have some talented people in the community. Have you considered letting us the listeners submit design ideas? You could even say pick 4 finalists and put the finalists up for community vote. Just an idea!
Josh and I basically had the same reaction.
THAT'S A FANTASTIC IDEA!!!
We have no excuse for not thinking of it sooner. So once again, thank you Bethany for bringing this idea to our attention.
We're basically going to do what Bethany outlined for us.
You have until the end of the month (April 30th) to submit your design for an official Tales From Godric's Hollow Cocoa Mug.
On May 1st, Josh and I will choose four (4) of our favorite designs and reveal them to you, the community.
You will then have a few days to vote on your favorite design. We will announce the winner on the May 9th (recorded May 7th) show.
The winner will naturally receive a mug with their winning design on it for free.
Here's what you need to know:
Submission Deadline: April 30th, 2018
Image size: 2700 x 1120px (You can draw, sketch, paint, photoshop whatever you like, but the final submission should be a digital file of this size.)
As much as you might want to use it, please avoid using the word MUGGLE in your designs. I've found out the hard way that it is trademarked and can cause problems when trying to print/sell things.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask. Otherwise, good luck! I can't wait to see what you come up with.
