MCR Chat Contest

For those of you who stumble across this thinking, "What is #MCRchat?" -- #MCRchat is a scheduled twitter-based chat about My Chemical Romance that I started in an effort to bring fans together and to promote the band.

Recently, I was given the opportunity to give out special MCRchat-exclusive coupons for the official My Chemical Romance online store, which made me realize that I can do a lot more with the chat than offer a place for fans to meet and to promote MCR. I can give back to those who have helped MCRchat itself grow!

Thus, I have decided to hold a contest with prizes for all you MCRchat-supporters!

In 2006, The MCRmy (My Chem's official street-team), held a contest in which participants had to use promotional posters for The Black Parade to create a store display. I used mine to create a replica parade float that was displayed in my local Hot Topic. I didn't win the contest, but I had a few posters left over after I had completed the float, which doesn't exist anymore as of this year -sadface-. Some of the posters, I hung up around town, but a few of them I kept and have been hoarding away. These, my friends, will be your prizes since I recently won huge, signed versions of them through, what else, an MCRmy contest. I figured it's definitely time to share. Ha-ha!

I apologize to MCRmy soldiers who already have these posters.

There are five posters, there will be five winners and five different ways to win. Ready?

Each of the five posters I will be giving out display the torso/Black Parade jacket of one member of MCR. There will be five contests to win them individually.

To enter the contest, you must submit an original work, whether it be a drawing, a piece of writing (creative or essay), or a video inspired by the member whose poster you are trying to win. Be creative! If you are unsure about your entry, let me know and I will tell you if it is okay.

-All entries should follow all general MCRchat rules--
-Please be respectful of the band and of one another
-No including elements of band members' personal lives
-If submitting a writing work, no fanfiction. Use a personal testimonial.
-NO USING OTHERS' WORK. Please submit original work that belongs to YOU.
-Submit only ONE entry per contest.
-If you win once, you will be ineligible to win again
-This can be something you created in the past or within the contest time
-Because of CRAZY expensive international shipping rates, I'm sorry, but this will be a U.S. only contest.
-I CANNOT ACCEPT MONEY FOR SHIPPING/THE POSTERS; as, they were free, promotional posters of no monetary value.

Any entries that break any of these rules (my judgment) will be disqualified.


How To Submit:

Submit your entries to with "Contest" and the name of the band member's poster you are trying to win in the subject line.
Include a brief explanation of how your piece was inspired by the band member along with your twitter username.
If I find you are not following #MCRchat on twitter, you will be disqualified. So, please remember to follow.

All entries are to be submitted by February 1st!


Further contest details will be announced on the @MyChemChat twitter page. After entries are submitted, I will hold a vote, and the winner will be decided!

Keep your eyes open on twitter!


ViennaKISS, MCRmy moderator and fan extraordinaire, has decided to give #MCRchat an additional 5 posters for the individual contest winners! View the poster here!

I really want to enter this, but I am still a little confused about somethings. I will write an essay, but is it like writing how much I love Frank or just about Frank. Like I don't know what would be correct for entry. Thanks.
