There’s no future in time travel, but there are, apparently, several things you should never touch while time traveling. The first is butterflies. The second is something you thought was a moth but turned out to be a butterfly. This is according to a list we found on the internet, so of course it’s true.

What do we want? Your best interpretation of time travel using your ShmooCon barcode in a work of impressive art. When do we want it? Irrelevant! (Well no, not really. Entries have to be turned in Friday and Saturday of con.) This joke was totally inspired by a t-shirt, also found on the internet.

Entries will be judged based on:

  • Best use of theme: Time Travel
  • Originality
  • Best use of Materials

Winning entries will receive a single ticket to ShmooCon 2025.

The Rules:

The official scanner is the Motorola DS4208 and your entry must incorporate your valid and scannable 2024 ShmooCon QR code. When submitting your entries, we ask that you provide a short project description including your inspiration, and contact information.

The @Shmoo_Shmarcode team is looking forward to seeing your creativity.

Need inspiration? Definitely check out The ShmooCon Barcode Shmarcode Archives for past (but alas, no future) examples.
