Extra Credit Challenge
In past pools, I’ve given extra credit assignments occasionally to add fun to the competition. You certainly don’t have to participate if you feel your scores are good enough to do without extra points. If you do need more points, though, this could be a way to inch your way up from the bottom.
I realize everyone has different skills so I like to offer options. Choose whichever extra credit assignment you want to do. You can do both options but you’ll only earn a maximum total of 10 points.
Option A—Diary of a Mad Designer
Choose one of the designers from this season and write a diary for them with 3-5 entries. They don’t have to be lengthy entries. Just a few sentences. You can choose any designer who competed this season, not just the ones still in the competition. It can focus on the challenge this week, their progress in the competition, their plans for after Project Runway, whatever you think they might write about! The funnier the better. You’ll get 2 points per entry.
Option B – Project Photochop
If you prefer to speak with images instead of words, you can present funny pictures from the show and include captions to go with them. You don’t have to use Photoshop. It’s ok to borrow images found online, or doodle some original art and scan it. It’s the effort that counts. The more creativity you use, the more points you’ll get.
Since this will probably be our only extra credit assignment, I'll give you two weeks to complete it. Post your assignment by the end of the day Thursday, September 20th so I can include points from it in the pool results.
If you have any questions about the extra credit, post them here or send me a private message.
Here's a similar extra credit assignment I gave years ago in the Pirate Master pool to inspire you: A Pirate's Life For Me!
