    September Contest~ Saying Good-bye To The Summer

    We at DreamslayerArtworks hope that all of you had a blast this Summer and invite you to share some of what you did, or enjoy, with your artistic talents. Bikinis, the beach, dune buggies, cookouts, fishing, experiencing nature and wildlife or whatever you enjoy about the Summer. And no, we're not forgetting those of you in the southern hemisphere as you move into Spring and look forward to Summer... show us your expectations and what you enjoy about the Summer as well.

    This doesn't have to be about today as you can do art about drive-in theaters or other memories from the past. Maybe the simple pleasures of eating ice-cream, sporting events or where you went on vacation could maybe inspire your art.


    IMPORTANT: ALL Prize lists MUST be in within one week after the contests end and judging is completed. beginning in September 2018, anyone not providing a prize list will be given items we choose for them and may forfeit prizes they might otherwise have been given if they provided a list. Those who provide lists will be given preferential treatment in relation to prize distribution.

    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 Summer or fantasy derived from it.

    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)
    D) Prize List

    Please remember to include prizes in the order that you might like them along with links to the items you want unless its a gift card item. include email address and usernames for software. For shippable items, please include real names and home address where you want your prize shipped.

    13) 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

    Prizes include:

    Prize: One DAZ Gift Certificate for $100.00

    Prize: three items of choice from Mortem Vetus rendo or daz store

    $50.00 Gift Certificate From Forender

    Lol, well this year I was aiming at trying to have every contest have a dark fantasy angle. I thought we might get some big ass sharks or catching fish here so I could claim there was a theme of death

    Someone pointed out it's not good-bye to Summer because it's Spring in the Southern Hemisphere. We try to represent that with our Christmas contest where our Santa might be chasing bikini babes south of the border. We tend to prefer warmer thoughts and imagery as we've devoted more competitions to themes based on this than on ice and cold. A great product to use for all climates and weather for after effects is Filter Forge, one of Octobers sponsors as they provide filters for all weather events, time of day / night and even building out entire scenes with water, snow, sunshine, wind... basically, all the elements. Why not give the trial version a run free for 30 days HERE or take advantage of their big 75% off sale HERE (todays the final day).

    Not doing a hard sell here. Lol, I didn't know about the sale and blew a good chance to promote a sponsor.
