A copy of this months contest info...in case you didn't see it. Begging for entries.
June Design Contest
This month’s theme is “Book or movie character.” I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with.
Must be original - not redesigned (from Playdom – it can be a photo from on line used as a reference.) CANNOT be a photo altered to fit the avi. This IS against the rules and is unfair to those who draw their designs from scratch.
FFNP* = For Fun Non Playdom
This is a forum held contest and is not sponsored by Playdom. Winning designs will not appear in the game. Until further notice - this contest is just for fun and has no cash prizes only virtual prizes here on the forum. This way more people can "win."
There will be multiple winners. A 1st place winner, a runner up and an honorable mention for both rookie and veteran. Unless there aren’t enough entries…then there will only be one poll.
You do not have to sign up; simply send me your design for your entry. You can send in photos until midnight CDST June 29th, at which time they will be posted (on the 1st) and voted on until July 15th. Winners will be posted on the 16th. The next months theme (August in this case) will be posted on the 1st of the month.
At no time is anyone allowed to use all or part of any design placed into this contest. Please respect others since they work hard on these designs. All items must be original, hand drawn and not an item from Playdom. If you use an avi from the avi thread please let the designer know in advance or make sure that they are given credit for make-up.
Submit the design with or without a background, but please DO NOT put your name on the photo. Use a different manner of water marking your photo if you desire to do so.
All entries are supposed to be anonymous. Although if you want to mention that you are submitting a design (or did so before now) it's okay. Please do not put your entry in your post. Please do not submit an unfinished design into your post either.
The people who visit the forum (usually designers) are judging the contest. Each person will chose their three top picks (unless there are only 3 of each – then you will vote for one.) The person with the most votes wins. If there are more than 10 entries received we will split them up into two (or more) categories and then the top three from each category will move forward to the next round of voting.
If it is found that a designer has made multiple accounts to vote for themselves multiple times then they WILL be BANNED…not only from the contest, but from the forum itself. It is against forum rules to have multiple accounts and if we find anyone even remotely suspicious we will report that person to the people who run the forum. This is a contest and it isn’t worth getting kicked off the forum. This contest is for having fun and becoming a better designer so you can win an actual Playdom contest in the future.
No one beside me will see the entries prior to the contest.
Whitney and Heather are both aware of the contest, but are not running it.
Please note that any design with inappropriate images or excessively bare body parts will NOT be posted for voting on. If you have any questions about images please refer to forum rules regarding images. Thank you.
More than one entry per person is welcome, but the limit is two (2) into the actual contest. (Unless I mess up again.) lol
Any previous design that has been posted in the forum will not be allowed to enter the contest. Please make sure you do not post it in your own thread. It will be disqualified if it has been posted. This is for fairness to the other designers.
If you design more you can submit them and I will decide which designs will be posted.
If any part or all of your design has been in your thread (in any color) it will be disqualified. If you are having issues with a part of your design you may ask someone for help. (One person.) You must give that person credit if they create a portion of your design. (ie: hair, shoes, pet, etc.) Or you can call it a group design.
If you design along with others in a group design you may still submit two (2) designs to the contest. This will be a fun addition. Your group designs do not count towards your design limit.
NEW: If we have 3 or more entries that are a group work then there will be a poll just for group designs.
It has been brought to my attention that there aren’t any rules stated as to the size of the design. If you need more space than 350 X 700 to show off the whole design on your avi feel free to do so. Please do not resize your avi. I will resize it if you send it in as a larger size. It is in all fairness to other designers that the avi bodies are all the same size.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. I will answer your questions as promptly as possible.
New designers are welcome to participate. Your designs will be placed according to the level of your designing skill.
First and foremost – have fun.
(If I missed anything, let me know.)
