There must be at least 1 elven character in your drawing.
Main color pallet must be redgreenyellow. One of the colors can be more present than the others as long as all 3 are the dominant ones. Also that doesn't mean you can't use other bits of the other colors as well, but if you can integrate yourself in only the 3 main colors even better.

Our Judges will choose their favorite top 5 entries, which will then be sorted out by the number of votes and the first 10 will be displayed in a journal.
If we think there are some deviations that truly deserve a chance and didn't make it into the top we will put a pool voting as well.
Also in this phase the judges will have to give a small comment on the first 3 entries they choose, why do they think they deserve to win, some of these messages will be displayed to let people know why they where chosen.
Bliood-Kira MaddalinaMocanu will choose the top 3 winners.
We are still looking for judges, if you are interested. Please let us know by leaving a comment or sending a note to our group.
Why is the judging so elaborated?
We want it to be as fair as possible because everyone deserves a chance.
A big thank you to all the groups helping us with the contest.
