Big Contest(Win 1 Year PM)CLOSED

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 26, 2012, 3:59 PM

CLOSED



What honestly humbles me the most when it comes to dA, is that even when I am doing absolutely nothing, and seldom comment on your stuff lately (It's not due to me being uninterested, I just have become super busy lately, and I need to adjust my classwork/dA work) I still average at least 50 pageviews a day. I think that is lovely. While I don't look at pageviews when it comes to popularity, it's nice that my inactivity has made it so I am not forgotten.

So to show my appreciation, I would really like to kick my first year off on dA with a BANG. And that is with what? Making my own contest, with what as a grand prize? A One-Year Premium Membership


To Participate

o1. Favorite this journal
o2. Advertise this contest in your groups, journal, etc.
o3. When you have your entry ready (you can make a new one or use an old one), please leave it in the comments so I can favorite it into the judging folder.


Rules

ALL ART IS ACCEPTED



- No word limit if you do literature
- No WIPs (if you need more time, PLEASE notify me in a note at least 48 hours in advance to the deadline)
- As many submissions can be allowed, but I will choose my favorite of those to judge against the others
- You can submit this entry into other contests, as long as you do the above requirements to participate
- Mature content is allowed, if properly labeled
- Photomanipulations need to have proper credit
- If you donate prizes, you can still participate!


Okay, here is the theme!


Celestial Memories


No, no, no! It does not have to be about me (unless you want it to be, but that won't give you an advantage =P)! I mean I want you to incorporate those two words as themes in your piece, the universe, fond memories of your childhood, stars, space, galaxies, dreams, hopes, past, present. Everything! Anything! Let your creativity go wild!


All mediums of art is accepted. And please, if you wouldn't mind, please state it was for this contest.



Okay, let's get to what you guys care about most. Prizes, right?

JUDGES: intricately-ordinary, FinalLegacy1, CelestialMemories

PRE-JUDGING AND PROCESS
If you are not participating and interesting to be a part of the judging process of this contest, you are more than welcome  to sent me a :note:! Judges must be available to be on dA for a chat discussion during the week of judging.

All entries will be critiqued by the judges on the first few days of the judging process, judges will receive a :note: closer to the Day 1 judging deadline. All entries will be critiqued to show appreciation for your participation.

Within a few days, the judges will be contacted and they will provide their view on what they will be looking at when it comes to judging and participating in the contest and all entrants will be sent a note with this journal entry. During that time, they can edit their entry or change/add more entries as they please.


JUDGING PROCESS
Your entry will be judged based off the following requirements
- Does your entry fit with "Celestial", "Memories", both? (If it doesn't fit with both, your piece will still be judged on the same basis as those who used both)
- Creativity, execution of the topic
- For literature: Are there any grammatical errors? Typos? Not properly labelled?(if mature)


See, easy, right?


CLOSED



* Those who have a delayed entry may still have a chance to enter their piece, but it will be looked at last and compared to the deviations that are "in the lead".
