    March Contest ~ Vampires vs Werewolves... Bad Moon Rising

    The world of vampires and werewolves originates within the dark recesses of the human soul. Where we might fear these creatures of the night, it is man himself which often proves more evil than his own dark imaginings.

    This months contest is for those of you with darkblood flowing in your veins as the creatures of the night are on the loose and it's your job to illustrate mans most primal fears.

    What we want from you is art pitting vampires and werewolves against one another. The challenge doesn't require you to actually put them in the same image together if you don't wish to do that. But, it will require an image with vampires and one with werewolves as separate images.

    Werewolves and vampires come in many different forms and transitional stages. They can be both beauty and the beast preying upon humanity... or acting as its dark defenders. Use your imagination and maybe put yourself into the scene. Maybe you're the creature and it's you living your own worst nightmares. Maybe it's a friend or family member? You might do sexy pinups, illustrate a character from a book or maybe even a scene from a favorite movie or tv show. There are numerous myths and legends for you to consider... or maybe you just want to illustrate something hidden in the darkest reaches of your mind where no one else is allowed to see?

    See what the animal side of your personality can unleash and scare the hell out of us... or maybe give us a chuckle with a bit of dark humor.

    But most of all, as always... have a terrifyingly good time doing it!


    IMPORTANT: ALL Prize lists MUST be in within TWO days after the contest is over. please remember to include prizes in order that you might like them along with links to the items you want unless its a gift card item, email address and usernames and for software/shippable items please include real names and home address thank you

    1) First and foremost, we want everyone to enter. If you do not wish a prize but want to participate in the spirit of showcasing your talent, we will be creating a list of those members who will officially receive a DSA No Prize. We've had trouble in the past where members enter who actually do not want to win. These members don't want to take anything away from members who are participating to win prizes and we've had issues in the past where we tried to accommodate these members but not every judge understood or read comments by the artist not to choose their image. When the official contest topic is posted, we would like any member who only wants to participate in the spirit of competition to contact us and we will officially add them to the No Prize list.

    2) Your images must follow the theme to the best of your ability. But how you do this is up to your individual creativity and imagination. So ask if you have questions about the theme.

    3) There is a post limit of one image a day... no reworks as all images must be original for this contest. Try adding different races and different cultures... explore the variety that makes up who and what we are.

    4) Images cannot be posted anywhere else for five days and must include links to this contest or statements that it is for this contest.

    A) Images posted late will be excluded from judging

    5) Artistic nudity is allowed but our rules on child nudity apply. No child nudity is allowed. This is defined as genitals and nip's so cover them up or risk violating our rules. A good alternative would be anime.

    6) The contest is open to any medium that you wish to use. You can enter with Computer generated images, photo manipulated, hand drawn, painted, or any other type of medium you can think of. Make note of the prizes being offered as only rarely might they not be 3d oriented.

    7) We consider it trolling if criticism about content is made when images are within the rules.

    8) Unless otherwise specified, make sure to add an alternate prize selection should you want a bundle or partnered item. Some of our sponsors allow this, some do not and some may on certain items of which we have no way of knowing.

    9) Consider adding some written text to explain your illustrations to help others better understand your image and leave comments on the entries of fellow contestants to show your appreciation.

    10) Make sure to check and see if the prize you have won is a coupon or a gift certificate. If it clearly says it is a coupon, do not apply it as a gift certificate at the sponsors site or vice versa.

    11) The theme should focus on vampires and werewolves either together in one image or separately in multiple images if you wish.

    12) Include the following information ~

    A) Username (for DSA and sponsors site)
    B) Email Address
    C) Real Name & Physical Mailing Address (for software and physical prizes)

    13) Beginning June 1st, 2015; At the end of the month contests will be judged within 7 business days. Winners will be contacted but are also expected to check back in to avoid oversights barring unforeseen circumstances.

    Again, please click the link at the top of the rules list to view the page set aside for this specific rule and discussion.

    14) Winners will provide a list including each sponsor in order that they would like to have the prizes. We will then choose what prizes you win on a first come, first serve basis. Our First Place winner will receive the first item on their list which will be removed from all other winners lists. Our Second Place winner will be given the first item remaining on their list and so forth. When each winner has been awarded a prize, we will begin again with the First Place winner until all prizes are awarded.

    A) Our normal monthly contests will have 5 winners. Our larger contests will have up to 31 winners. We will alert members should this change at any time or if the sponsors have alerted us to award items to runners up.

    B) You may provide a list to us at any time during the month. Providing the list does not guarantee a prize. Items given to runners up, if any, will come from these lists or be donated by prize winners.

    15) If you do not provide the items you would like where you have won a "choice" of items from the sponsor, on the list you provide to us, you will have 5 business days after notification to contact us. It is unfair that, in cases where a sponsor provides a prize to multiple winners, that winners who reply quickly must wait of winners who reply late.

    16) Remember, if you have any questions, please ask them in the contest topic so that staff or fellow members can explain and help you to understand rules or themes in our competitions.

    I posted the results but was unstickying the post at the same time so didn't notice the results didn't post.

    Guys guys guys... be a pest like Venator here (lol) and keep replying asking if the results have been finished if you will. I just turned 51 and I am now an old man so I need help remembering things







    Honorary Mention


    Sorry about that and will make sure to doublecheck from now on if no one reminds me with followups.

    Thanks Venator for posting as I should have checked again to make sure but maybe people feel like they're being a pest to ask when life sometimes interrupts and distracts us.

    Wouldn't ya know it. I missed a judge.

    I have corrected the order and I believe winners were contacted in March but this bug in our pm system prevented winners from receiving notification.

    A few have let me know they did notify us and the prizes were delivered. So, if you did not receive notification, I apologize. As you can see, communication issues are an issue.

    I have sincerely been thinking about changing our forum software as we've had too many bugs and I'm sure ours must be nearing end of life.

    If you uncover bugs, please post on our bug topic in chat or on our bug topic. We want everyone to get their prizes and we are doing followups now on the March contest to make sure you get your prizes.

    Again, our apologies.
