Ladies and Gentlemen, newcomers and veterans of Snafu, welcome to the first semi-annual Snafu Art Contest, taking place in the summer of 2013! All kinds of artists, both professional and hobbyists come together in order to create a drawing related to the contests theme for an opportunity to win fame*, fortune**, and a fabulous prize: A commision by bleedman!
Everyone has a chance to win!
Keeping in line with our first summer contest, our first theme shall be, fittingly:
So with that in mind, go out there and draw anything you feel is under that theme, be it you hanging out at the beach, having a barbeque, or having a stroll in the great outdoors. You can draw yourself and your friends, or fan art based on your favorite Snafu comics, or perhaps your own characters. Whichever you feel like.
Voting will be done by fellow members of Snafu, making this a community activity. Along with everyone else, there will be three anonymous judges who will critique your work and vote alongside you, and who will, ultimately, decide which piece of art stands out from the rest, with your votes as backing. The winner of the contest will then receive a free commission from Bleedman, the artist behind Powerpuff Girls Doujinshi, Grim Tales, Sugar Bits and more. So do your best to impress!
There are specific areas we want to inform you about and how things are organized.
• The Voting thread: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=54947
The voting thread is a Local Announcement thread, in the Art Section. You will vote here. Names and submissions are gathered together and posted. The submissions are linked with the names.
• Your Art thread
Within the Art Section you can create your own thread and name it in a way that identifies it as yours. This is your portfolio were you can post your art. Post your entry here as a "ticket" to participate, AND post a link to your entry in the main contest thread.
The entire contest itself will take place for one month as soon as it opens: We are planning on opening in the beginning of July. THE CONTEST IS A GO!
OPENED: JULY 2ND - AUGUST 6TH
VOTING: AUGUST 6TH - AUGUST 13TH
* = Fame restricted regionally only to the area within the forum's frontiers.
** = Fortune described here as a "feeling of being fortunate", for participating.
Special Thanks goes out to Hiroko for the idea, and to Mir@k for the design of the announcement.
Feel free to ask questions too, btw.
