It's been many years since i've held a contest and while i can't offer too much in terms of prizes i think it would be fun to hold one.
Also this isn't a contest being held by a club, this is just a contest being held by me Raichana and some other clubs have been extremely kind in advertizing it.

Thanks to everyone who participated, i hope you had a good time.
I will be contacting the winners and setting up the journal features.
I learned a lot from this contest, some good and some bad but in the end it was still a lot of fun. I will hold another contest in a few months with a much more specific theme... but also hopefully bigger prizes. and hopefully next time i can have a proper judging panel instead of relying on polls.
This contest is OVER! The 5 finalists with be put up in two polls - spring vs summer and Autumn vs winter (based on the results of my current poll results). the polls wont be up for long, once i get the gist of what the community is feeling I will get my other judges to help me pick a winner. once i have announced the finalists i will no longer be taking submissions.
Finalist will be determined by how creatively they completed the challenge of drawing an outfit based on the season.
74 entries! i never would have expected that many.
and a quick note this is just a contest that i'm holding, no attachment to any clubs so all opinions are completely my own.
The rules in this journal are the ones to follow to avoid confusion.
So whats the challenge?
Draw a character wearing an outfit inspired by one of the four seasons.
in the description of your piece you must mention which season you are using.
It can be any character, Oc or fan art, male or female it doesn't matter just whatever you feel like drawing as long as it meets the challenge.
Submitting is simple, just send me, Raichana, a note with the link and mention the season it is for.
Voting will be done Via poll and my personal opinion of the image i find to be the most creative. It will all depend on how many submissions there are.
Only one submission per season. (max of 4 entries)
No mature content so that everyone can see every submission at a glance.
Only submissions made between April 19th 2013-May 19th 2013 will be accepted.
You can have as many characters in a single picture as you want but i ask you only keep it to one season per picture.
You can draw any medium and any style as long as it meets the challenge.
No tracing, no bases no art theft of any kind. The idea and execution must be 100% your own.
if you see art theft that i have missed just send me a note and i'll look into it.
otherwise have fun.

Judging will be based on creativity, use of inspiration and overall impact of the piece.
I will pick the top five (ten if we get that many per season) pieces per season and set up a poll to allow you to pick your favorite.
After that there will be a final poll pitting the top two of each season against each other with 2 wild cards of my choosing.
Winners will be announced a week after the final poll is put up.
this may change depending on how many submissions but assuming we get 5 submissions per season this is how we will do it.
if you have advertised this contest and i have missed thanking you just send me a quick shout out and i'll add you name to the list.
