Looking forward to seeing the results of this as there are so many fantastic entries - not sure how long it's going to take the DA staff to view all of them though as there are so many!

I ended up doing two submissions with two different styles, please check them out if you have time!

Some genuine pearls in this contest. There are easily more than 25 quality peaces, I made a Tomb Raider collection from those that i really liked.
Would like to see some variety in styles in the top 25 though.
Anyway my entries:

"Potential winners will be selected on or about March 29, 2013" So the winners should be announced soon after once those selected have been confirmed.

Question: if I've uploaded the work at the correct size, is it ok to set the view image at a lower size? In this case, 1600 pixels wide? I don't want to be disqualified for that change, and I am guessing that doesn't matter. Just to be safe, I left it at the ridiculously huge original size option, but it's terrible on people trying to view it, I imagine.

I didn't need to think twice about NOT entering this contest because I knew there would be insane artwork, and I was right. Best of luck to all the participants and I'll be really happy for everyone who wins prizes or kudos!

Many of the entries don't conform to the minimum size requirement of at least 3000px. Plus you have to be 18yrs of age or older which I'm sure is another requirement that many overlooked.

Hi,

Does the judge really go trough ALL the entries or just check the ones with the most comments and views? Because I feel
that some good entries are lost in the popularity contest against submitters with big following here at DA.

well, maybe I should just cut the crap and do better art to get more views... :)

Anyway heres mine: [link]

Yeah, I agree, but its not only the popular members that I worry about, its the "professionals" that already do this stuff easily for a living and could just easily win, it isn't fair to everyone else who isn't in that position yet, might as well post this contest for "professionals and popularity only"
if that is how winners are going to be picked.
