    Decembers Contest ~ A Christmas Fantasy


    Each year for the past 15 years we have done a Darker Shades of Christmas theme for our Christmas contest. This year, it's Christmas Fantasy and where you have been encouraged to do dark fantasy for this contest, this year we encourage you to do Christmas fantasy art. Does that mean no dark art? No... we're not saying that. You can still do a dark fantasy image if you like. We just thought we'd mix it up a little and try a contest that's more general for the Christmas season. We're not ending Darker Shades as you can still enter a Darker Shades image if you like... just the main theme gets a bit worn after a while and it's being semi-retired for a year.

    Also, this contest will last only 17 days. Get those lists to us as soon as possible because we want to try reaching sponsors before Christmas and do the judging on Dec 18th. If a sponsor is already away for Christmas, we can't do much about that. But you are forewarned to get those lists in so when the judging starts, we already know what you might want from the sponsors so we can try getting it for you before Christmas.

    Enter often and have fun... tis all we ask this Christmas season




    BIG NOTE: CONTEST ENDS ON DEC 17 THIS YEAR
    NOTE: This year Darker Shades Of Christmas will only have 15 winners.




    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 Any of the winter holidays or anything winter in general.

    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
