I Believe in Bishop
This thread is for the Plush Bishop giveaway contest running through Sunday, September 9. Why do you believe in Bishop? This is a chance to share your story and express your appreciation for an artist who has come to mean a great deal to many people over the past few years . . . and win a pretty unique item in the process! Post your "Why I Believe In Bishop" story below. Just a few notes and rules: 1) I can only ship this within the US. Plush Bishop was not mass-produced. It was a labor of love that was hand made just for this giveaway. Given the costs and time involved in its production, I really do have to minimize risks of it being lost in the mail. I've had many issues with international shipping in recent years, so, sadly, I do have to have stick to this limitation. I anticipate that any future giveaways will be open worldwide. 2) Feel free to post your "Why I Believe In Bishop" story below in any way you want, however long or short. You can share photos and video to enhance your post. Fans have discovered Bishop's music in many different ways, and we likewise have a wide range of experiences as fans. Your fandom isn't contingent on whether you've met her or even seen her live, so don't be dissuaded from sharing your love for Bishop and her music if you don't have any "up close and personal" elements to add. Each of our fan experiences is unique, and Bishop's music means something a bit different to each of us personally. 3) One extra note: I will not be the one judging this contest. Having run the "Cheesehead 4 Bishop" social media accounts for a while now, I do know a number of fans fairly well and have heard many fan stories. I felt it would be best to have third party to determine the winner to avoid any potential misunderstandings/hurt feelings. This person has Bishop quite close to her heart and has been a fan longer than I have, and she would be able to make the final decision from a more objective standpoint. 4) If you have any questions, concerns, issues with the contest or using the forum in general, feel free to contact me with through the contact box at the bottom of the screen or by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
