ABOUT OUR CONTESTS AND OUR GALLERIES
« on: August 24, 2015, 02:50:27 PM »
Fantasy Attic has many contests! It's a chance for everyone to win. We like to make people happy!


THE MONTHLY CONTESTS

We have a monthly contest that is themed. The members of the Attic pick the theme by making suggestions and then voting. Whichever suggestion gets the most votes in the end, that's the monthly theme. It's OUR choice as a community. So do join in with suggestions and VOTE!.

There are four placements from 1st to 4th place! There are also months where we may even have Honorable Mentions!

These contests are judged by people who do not participate in the site. That's all they do is judge the contests - and sometimes that's a big job, because we get so many really great entries. No admins of the Attic decide who wins. No one plays favorites, here. It's what they - the judges- like of what they see. Let's see your entries there.

Please read the contest rules carefully for each month. Number of entries may vary and ending dates also vary. The last day of the month is not necessarily the last day of the contest. We don't want you to miss out on your chance.

Contest entries MUST be placed in the Gallery folder for the contest for consideration in the contest. It's just a way to make things easier for the monthly contest judges.

*****

We also have the *new* "Challenge of the Month (COTM)" contest, where one image is selected each month as an 'Image of the Month'. Entries for this challenge/contest must be placed in the "Challenge of the Month" contest folder for that particular Month - i.e. for January, February, March, etc. as it is separate from the main monthly FA Contests for judging.

The prizes for this contest are a different rotation of our sponsors each month.

Again, please be sure to read the description of the Challenge of the Month before submitting your works.




THE WEEKLY CONTESTS

Our two main weekly staples here are the Starving Artist of the Week award or SAOTW, as we call it, and the Treasure of the Week award - TOTW.

The other weekly contest we have changes from year to year. This year, it's the "Toon It contest". Where you may do pinups, portraits or whatever else you can do with TOONS.*

The prizes for these 3 contests are:
1 item from our Fantasies Realm Market and
3 items from our Sponsors Showcase.


FOLDERS

Any image placed in any folder in the Galleries except for personal folders and the folders for the "Toon It" contest or the "COTM" folders  is eligible to win SAOTW.

Any image placed in any folder in the Galleries including personal folders is eligible to win TOTW.

Contest entries for Toon It are only for the Toon It weekly contest folder.

COTM (monthly) has it's own monthly folders. Those entries go in the respective monthly folder for consideration.


Really, we're not 'folder Nazis' - we just need a little order around here where there is mostly craziness ;)



OTHER CONTESTS

Occasionally, we have individual challenges and other little contests here and there. You will receive announcements for those in the mail or check the forum!




THE GALLERY

Our TOS is simple: No child porn or implications of such; no active violence...the result of it - use your judgement there. No flaming or disparaging comments. If you have something constructive to say and put it nicely, that's cool. Nudity in the main galleries is allowed as long as it's 'tasteful'. That's about it for Gallery rules.
 
Votes for winning images in weekly or monthly contests are NOT measured by how many views or comments you get. If you don't want to comment on everything, you don't have to. Comment on what you like. It's all good. You will be notified by mail when someone leaves you a comment - as long as your email address is valid and active. That is the extent of our Gallery mail-bots. You will not be notified when others post images.

For those who like to do something more 'adult' and of a spicier nature, we have the RED DOOR Gallery. If you would like to visit or post there, please contact Jherrith by PM and he will provide you with access.

If you would like to add a folder into an existing classification (i.e. for the Fantasy folder), let us know and we'll see what we can do. PM myself (sidherose), Jherrith or DarkAngel to ask. We'll see if we can't accommodate you! We have tried to cover all the bases, but we miss some at times.

Our gallery limits are generous! Add up to five images a day...FREE! Sizes up to 3000x3000 are allowed up to 1500 kb or 1.5 mb. Most of all, we want you to have a good time, feel at home and enjoy yourself.

I thought something that kind of summed it all up might be in order here with all the newbies and those returning who may have forgotten.

Glad 'even French people can understand' :tearlaugh:

Feel free to ask, if there are questions!

Feel free to ask, if there are questions!

Can I have a 6 piece unagi roll of sushi with wasabi and eel sauce on the side?

:pweez: :thud: :tearlaugh:


No seriously I think you have covered the grounds rules quite nicely and have let all know that everyone has a chance to win and not just a select few.

So let us see everyone posting we so love your artwork and vision

Trust me it is not at full strength nor in large amounts just a dab is all one needs

One small caveat in regards to the SAOTW selection process, any image in the public galleries except the monthly contests, Your Art or PnP COTM albums are eligible. *

Due to the subject matter, anything from the Red Door album is not eligible for any of the weekly or monthly prizes.

Personal/private galleries are not selected from for the SAOTW.

The TOTW on the other hand can be selected from personal/private galleries.

So if any wonder why they never get selected for the SAOTW that is the reason.
