In seek of volunteers!
« on: Thu, 09 May 2013, 23:55:46 »
We are near finished with the production of some new keycaps and would like the help of some talented photographers!

We're currently in seek of volunteers who have exceptional photo taking skills and access to atleast 1 led keyboard(the more the merrier!).
What's the catch?

You'll receive a set of our new keycaps free of charge before public sale. All we ask is you take pictures of our keycaps on your mechanical keyboards(led preferred).
In addition to free keycaps we'll even include a couple of surprises for your photos and time!

How do you apply?
Send us a sample picture(s)(keyboard related!) of your work and the country you live in!
Send your work or questions via PM to KeyPop on Geekhack or email us at Sales@keypop.net
We will only be needing a few volunteers so please do not be discouraged if we do not accept your application.

DEADLINE
5/15/13(TODAY) @ 11:59 PM
Don't forget!

I have a camera on my phone. Does that count? Every photo I've ever posted was from that thing.

Sometime this weekend! Been extremely busy lately and I do like to formally apologize to all who submitted their applications.
Rest assured as long as you sent your emails to sales@keypop.net or via PM on geekhack, I have received them and have been evaluating each one.
Some of you already may have received confirmation emails and some of you may have not yet. Please don't worry! My week has been incredibly busy so I hope everyone of you understand.

I organized this opportunity for free keycaps as a form of my gratitude for the great support I've received from you guys.
I do have future group buys ready to be launched soon so be sure to stay on the lookout ;]

The deadline will be TODAY @ 11:59 PM PST. Unfortunately any submissions after this deadline will NOT be accepted.
Even if you don't have a led keyboard but would like to send us samples of your work for future consideration in our other upcoming projects, feel free to drop us some emails!

Well I'm totally late to the party :(  If by chance you are still taking applications, I only have a full-sized keyboard with red backlight.  I was unsure if that was good enough as opposed to a selection of keyboards.
