Wurmwood Photography is looking for ladies that are out of this world to make a calendar that aims for the stars!
The Space Babes calendar will feature 15 women from around the universe, both cosmonaut and alien, that are gorgeous no matter how many eyes they have.
Think campy 70's sci-fi pinup, and you have our main theme. Ladies clad in silver, wielding ray guns, bright saturated colors, and of course a helmet or two!

Models:

    The models used in this calendar will be the top voted ladies in a photo voting contest. Interested parties will fill out the form at the bottom of this page and submit a photo of themselves to be used for voting. 
Once voting begins, fans and friends will cast their votes for the best gals to grace the pages of our calendar. 
The top 15 ladies with the most votes will be selected, with the leader snagging the cover and first choice of month, and the other winners selecting their month in order of contest rank.
    Winners will be dressed as either a space cadet or an alien, and each photoshoot will be unique from the last.
Ten of the months will feature one girl, one month will feature two girls, and one month will feature three girls.
    All models will receive digital copies of their sets, as well as free high resolution digitals that they will be allowed to print anywhere they please and sell on their websites, Patreons, and more. 
    There will be a $5 entrance fee for all interested parties that will go towards to cost of props, set design, and costuming. If you do not have $5, you can find a sponsor to pay for you.

This contest is open to women of all shapes, sizes, color, nationalities, and planets.

To join, fill out the application at the bottom of this page.

Contest Details:

Entry Fee: $5
(all entry fees go toward costuming, props, and set building)
Entry Deadline: July 8th 11:59pm
Voting Begins: July 10th 6:00pm
Voting Ends: July 24th 6:00pm
Winners Announced: July 25th 9:00pm

So, why the entry fee?
Entry fees suck, we understand. What's the big idea? Well, the bittersweet truth is that props, costuming, and set design requires money. Lots of it. My pockets are only so deep (and I'm a female so I'm lucky to have pockets at all), and I want these photoshoots to be as slammin' as I can make them. To do that, we need funding. The entry fees will go directly towards supplies needed to make this dream a reality. That's it, pretty simple really. And we know it sucks, but we've secured several great sponsors who are willing to offer some incredible prizes to the winners that more than make up for the $5 you'll spend entering the contest. And if you don't make it? You're still helping me by supporting my cause and my art, and it's truly appreciated in every way a bad-ass contribution can be appreciated! 

The Calendar:


The calendar will be 12 months of jaw dropping beauty, spanning  the universe from sea to methane sea. 


In addition to the calendar, each photo will be available as an exclusive 18x24 poster, 5x7 print, and coffee table book (including behind the scenes, outtakes, and extra images)

After shooting is wrapped up, the ray guns and other props we'll be creating will be auctioned off, raffled away, and part of a giveaway. 

 

Donations:

Donations are being accepted via paypal at Paypal.me/Wurmwood
All donations will be used for props, set building, and costumes.
Everyone who donates (even $1) will be entered in a drawing to win The following prize pack:
- A free copy of the calendar, signed by every model and photographer.
- One free ray gun used on one of the pages.
-A free 16x20 Space Babe poster

Anyone who donates $50 or more (money or supplies) will be named at the end of the calendar and coffee table book as a special thank you. 
If you would like to donate or lend your costume pieces/props, or if you would like to donate supplies, please let us know!
Any designers who want to sponsor the project by lending costume pieces will be credited at the end of the calendar and coffee table book.

Application fees are non-refundable, and will not be refunded even if the model does not win the contest. Models will receive free web and print (high resolution) digital versions of their sets, and models will be permitted to print those images or sell the images (in prints, on merchandise, through Patreon, etc.) only AFTER the calendar has officially been released. Models may still print the images for their own use before the calendar is launched, but they musn't be sold. Models may be asked to help supply their own costumes or pieces of it (within reason) such as boots, bodysuits, etc. Major pieces and props will be built/provided for you. If you don't have the entry fee, you may find a sponsor to pay for you. Make sure you/they include your name in the Paypal transaction notes so we know who to credit. Models must be willing to travel to Hillsboro, Ohio and must be available in a timely fashion. Because we have a short time to produce the calendar, winners who can't make time to come shoot within a reasonable time may have to forfeit their spot. By signing up, you agree to these terms.
