Challenge Yourself is an Official Snafu Art forum contest. It operates on a bi-weekly cycle, as explained below. The prize is respect, and having your image preserved for prosperity in the 'hall of win'. As the title suggests, the idea is not to best each other, but to best yourself![/center]
This week's theme is collaborations. This is the theme that was voted in during the last challenge. The subject is a broad one, so I'm open to pretty much anything you guys can come up with. This contest should be judged on how well you work together with one another, and I'm sure you guys will work the best when you choose the theme! Also, it is not limited to only 2 people, but...more than 2 can get confusing. Just a warning, heh.
- Only visual art allowed. Art must conform with the Snafu Art forum rules.
- Art must be created WITHIN the cycle time. You MAY NOT use art you created last week, last month, last year, or ever before this cycle. These pieces may be posted as demonstration of the theme, but MUST be marked as previous work.
- Multiple submissions totally allowed.
- Submissions must be related to the theme in some way. This is fairly open to interpretation, but it shouldn't be too hard for people to see how it is related.
- Please do not include any forum member in your entry without asking permission first.
- Judges are off-limits for entries.
*Rules are subject to change within three days for items I may have forgotten.
Submissions will be judged by ZOULART. In the event of my absence, I will appoint a guest judge. The criteria for judging are: CREATIVITY, EXECUTION (skill), and EFFORT. Please note that you are judged against YOURSELF (your previous demonstrated works) and not so much against each other!! In this contest, a new artist who puts in a tremendous amount of creativity and effort can defeat an experienced artist who has more skill and experience, but didn't push themselves.
Judges may enter pieces into the contest, but they will be exhibition only. Any person may also mark their own submission as 'exhibition' and it will not be judged.
Challenges operate on a two week cycle. The contest officially begins on MONDAY.
MONDAY: Contest begins, submissions accepted. Submissions will be accepted until the FRIDAY after next (almost 2 weeks later). (Start: Monday, October 1st)
FRIDAY after next: Winners will be announced, no more submissions accepted (but may be posted just as exhibition). SUGGESTIONS for the next Challenge begins. I reserve the right to reject challenge suggestions based on vague-ness, being too similar to a recent challenge, or unfeasibility. ONE SUGGESTION PER MEMBER. You may change or withdraw your suggestion ONLY before the poll begins. (Submission end: Friday, October 19th, 2007!!)
SATURDAY: A poll will be put up in the same thread with the suggestions. Voting begins. Suggestions will no longer be accepted once I start to create the poll. (Saturday, October 20th)
SUNDAY: The poll will close, and the winning suggestion becomes the next challenge. In the event of a tie, I will cast the tie-breaking vote (I will not vote in the poll except in this event.) (Sunday, October 21th)
