Congratulations! You Just Won a SLOOT!

Wait, what?
I just won a sloot?

sloot, n.
Slate + Loot = SLOOT! 

  1. A Planet Slate loot bag/ goody bag of random objects to be given away to a planeteer
  2. Only one sloot per month up for grabs!
  3. The mechanics to get the chance to win the sloot will vary every month
    When used in a sentence: I submitted an artwork to Planet Slate and won this month’s sloot!

The Slate Team is very happy to share with all of you that the winner of the Travel Cases & Continued Doodles Contest will receive the very first sloot in Planet Slate history! Huzzah! But before we let you in the contents of this month’s sloot, let us first tell you about the top 3 submissions and contest winner:

An Ultimate Summer Invite!
Pat Lambinicio
The only digital submission of the bunch!
What we like: The team liked the concept of it: half invite, half checklist! We love the overall look of it: catchy, colorful and playful!

 Quirky Traffic!
Yas Neri
The very first submission!
What we like: Not that we think the others lack imagination but just look at this! We are impressed at how she continued the doodle and how you can look at different parts of the page and find so much detail! You can almost play “Look and Find” with it.

Lia Gangoso + friends
A team effort!
What we like: The Slate Team loves how the unfinished lines was continued into a might wave! We also think that the typography is wonderful. Overall we think it’ll be a real spiffy Aloha icon or logo! Good job!

So, congratulations, Lia! We will be sending you your sloot before you can say aloha a hundred times!

It was hard for us to pick just one sloot winner. I know that sounds like a cliché but it really was hard for us. I guess, it will be hard for us every month. It’s difficult to compare one artwork to the other because each is very unique. Halfway going through the submissions, we realized that our discussions over who should win is taking too much time and tbh, too much effort. We didn’t want to further cloud each other’s views on the works so we had to vote and vie for the winning doodle by point system with the basic criteria of originality of concept, effort and aesthetic appearance. The numbers came in pretty close and we are happy with the results! The team would also like to extend our thanks to all the planeteers who sent their entries! We would like to give more sloots if only we had more to give! We really appreciate all the submissions! You don’t know how much it means to us! Thank you! And so, without any more delays, here’s what you can dig up in May’s sloot:

1 Rainbow Write! Colorfully update your Slate planner with Schneider Slider colored pens!

2 Mr. Shoester. Get yourself something awesome from Vans with this P500 Gift Certificate!

3 A Bathing Ape! On your next trip, no need to wait for your soap to dry just so you can put it inside your bag already! Bathe with this shower gel in a soft pack with a nicely illustrated ape.

4 Noteworthy. My father always says to me, “The pen(cil) is mightier than the sword”. When you need to write down something -an idea, things to do, things to buy, activities, doodles, anything really- write them down on this fat notepad from Muji!

5 Recycled Pencils! Treehugger (they are very aptly named) found a greener way to produce pencils! These pencils we are sending you are made of old newspapers! Amazesome!

6 Dew Man Gee? Bring this film to a movie marathon, a sleepover, project it on a huge screen, whatever. Imaginative Plot. Curiosities. Games. Exploration. Adventure. Jumanji. What more can you ask for?

All these goodies are packed in a safety case which you can reuse! Yeah a freebie!
‘Til the next Sloot Giveaway!

Captain Slate and the Team
