    31 Days of Hell 2018 ~ Dark Souls




    Welcome one and all to this years annual frightfest. 31 Days of Hell is being unleashed and we have one question to ask you. How do you define the word Monster? This years 31 Days of Hell competition WILL REQUIRE that you incorporate your definition for Monster into your submissions. The best way to define the word Monster may be that they are Dark Souls. Creatures we would consider violent and evil even if it's only from our fears, whether justified or not.

    Does this mean your submissions must include violence? No. It's a Halloween contest. What we're looking for is your best Halloween styled artwork. The requirement that you include something monstrous in your artwork is to encourage you not to oversimplify such as doing an image of a bag of candy. Maybe your image is a a demon possessed candy apple? Some kids walking through a cemetery with hands emerging from the ground or a werewolf silhouetted against the moon while two people are making out in their car.


    Some typical definitions of Monster are as follows...

    1 : A large, ugly, and frightening imaginary creature; a legendary animal combining features of animal and human form or having the forms of various animals in combination, as a centaur, griffin, werewolf, or sphinx.

    2: An inhumanly cruel or wicked person; one who deviates from normal or acceptable behavior or character; an immoral monster; depraved; A rude or badly behaved person, typically a child.

    2 : a threatening force, violent, bloodthirsty

    3 : an animal of strange or terrifying shape; one unusually large for its kind

    4 : a person of unnatural or extreme ugliness, deformity, wickedness, or cruelty


    Any genre of art can be submitted. Pinups, humor, horror, ect... What we want most of all is for you to have fun and to do your best. In past years, little girls with sharp knives were an ideal many of our artists did. If you want to do something like that, be creative and put your own touch on it. Maybe you have a new idea for Frankensteins Monster or zombies taking over the world? Creatures from outer space or otherworldly dimensions? No Halloween is complete without Hollywood masters such as John Carpenter classics like the Thing or Michael Myers looming about.

    This is your contest. You create the art, we just create the theme and link you to great sponsors providing the prizes.




    RULES

    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 your definition of Monster (but remember, the overall theme is horror and Halloween).

    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 competition

    You should be able to comment. Some of the settings are off so if you can't comment on the images I'll let the programmers know.
