Now that my internet's fast again, just want to give a final reminder that there's a couple of days left for the Badassery contest. If anyone planned on submitting something, now's the time to submit it =D

I'll send a note to the judges when the time comes to start the judging, and once we have decided on the winners, I'll notify the prize-givers on the results  =)
Boo-yeah, we now have 300 members and almost 450 watchers on this group! :woohoo: And I always thought when I created this group, it'd be difficult to reach the attention of the fans =P Thanks everyone for your activity and all the wonderful artworks you have created for the series =D Let's keep em' comin' :eager:

Also, a reminder that there is a bit more than half a month left before the deadline for the 'Badassery' contest =)
CONTEST END DATE EXTENDED TO 1st JULY 2011

After letting the members of this group vote on our first contest topic, the results have come up with 'BADASSERY' :lol:

So, 'badassery' is the theme of our contest. The aim for everyone is to depict a character[s] or a scene/situation of some sort related to the Wheel of Time series in such a way that it defines the word 'badass'. For those who are not sure what 'badass' means: www.urbandictionary.com/define… ;)

The artwork will be judged based on how well it portrays this theme, as well as originality, technique and execution.

News article for the contest: news.deviantart.com/article/14… (Fave it please =D)

HOW TO ENTER YOUR ARTWORK
I will make a folder in the group's gallery specifically for the contest entries. Please add your artwork there (I'll be checking each one first of course) . If you add your entries to any other folder by accident, please inform me otherwise your entries won't be included.

RULES

:bulletred:  All media is accepted (i.e. visual media, such as digital, traditional, photography etc. AS WELL AS literary works)

:bulletorange: DEADLINE FOR ALL ENTRIES: 1st JULY 2011 The deadline has been extended by one month, which is technically end of June. I don't want to extend the time so much because the contest has gone on for quite a while already, but I did want more entries to get submitted so I think it will be enough for majority of people to complete their entries =)

:bulletblue: Everyone can participate. That means judges can participate too (except they won't be allowed to vote for their own work later on ;) )

:bulletgreen: All entries need to be new work, uploaded after this contest start date: 1st April 2011

:bulletyellow: You may enter more than one artwork (MAXIMUM 2 deviations)

:bulletpurple: Artists comments on every entry need to mention that the artwork is for the WoT 'Badassery' Contest

:bulletblack: If you use references, make sure you properly credit the original artists. Also, your work must be your own, and not someone else's

:bulletwhite: Artistic nudes are accepted but no pornographic content, racist/hateful, extremely gory artwork are allowed.

:bulletred: Canon characters only, which means no OCs allowed. It would be better to see the canon characters in your artwork so that everyone can familiarise themselves with your work.

Your judges for the contest are:

Anyone who is willing to donate prizes, it would be muchly appreciated! =D Please send me a note and indicate whether they are for first/second/third place winners =)

I will send a note to prize donators when the winners are to be announced.

Good luck everyone! I'll be looking forward to see how bad-ass everyone's entries get :XD:
Since most people want an extension (good thing I asked too =P ) how much more time does everything think they'll need? Another month or only a half month??

I'm thinking we can end in early July sometime, but I'll check with everyone first =)
Just wondering, have I given enough time for everyone to participate in the contest? I know quite a few people mentioned that they would participate but I'm also aware that May-June is the busiest period for those who are still students, because of a stack load of assignments, assessments and exams coming up. I know that I'm so full on with work right now, I haven't drawn anything decent for a while and my mind is overflowing with inspiration and ideas =(

Should I extend the end date of the contest or not? (Up to the majority of the group of course =) )
