Submission requirements

Submission requirements:

• We do not accept photography, photo manipulations or 3D rendering, like G-mods for a example.
• Pictures need to be of quality. We try to be generous when judging these things, but what we look for is effort. If it looks like the person put real effort into the work, that’s usually enough.
• A key thing to remember that the group is Badass CHARACTERS! In this case, a character is an intelligent, tool user capable of manifesting some personality. Overwhelmingly, we prefer that some sort of humanoid be in the picture.
• Something has to be badass about the picture itself. If it’s not self-evident then it’s not badass enough.
What is Badass?
The state of being badass can be a little hard to define. If you’re wondering whether or not a given picture is badass, first look through our gallery. Failing that, here are some hints…
• Does it make you want to say “THAT’S TOTALLY BADASS?”
• Is it METAL? Does it look like it came striding out of a heavy metal ballad?
• Does it look like it’ll kick YOUR ass? Normally this means through physical force, but definitely isn’t limited to it?
• Is it of a picture of someone who had proven their badassery, in real life or fiction? Teddy Roosevelt and Conan the Barbarian both would be suitable.
• Does it feel epic? Does it feel gritty?
Badass is a state of mind ultimately. It’s a refusal to take shit. It’s the force of will to make opposition fall aside.
Gladiators, Charioteers, Arenas, Coliseums and Bloodsports!

The bloodthirsty howls of the crowd.  No place to run.  No where to run.  The only way out is through your opponents.  Do you merely seek survival?  Are you driven by the lure of freedom?  Or do you desire a trophy or fame?

This contest is about arenas, coliseums, etc and those who fight in them.
• For the purposes of this contest an arena is any place where at least two combatants are expected to compete in a physical contest with real danger, with the intent of entertaining an audience.
• The most obvious example of this is gladiators fighting in ancient Rome.  However, there are many ways to take this idea.
• The chariot races of ancient Rome were very exciting and incredibly dangerous.
• The Aztecs had a team sport where the losers could be skinned.
• Smaller and more humble arenas work fine too.  The stone pits from the Conan the Barbarian movie, which featured blood fights work fine for this contest.
• Speaking of fiction, there are plenty of other places to draw inspiration from.  Gamsters of Triskelion from Star Trek is just one.
A little bit of imagination can take some of these concepts into exciting new places.
• You are not restricted to time period or place.  Place in a sci-fi future, an alternate past or the modern day.
• If chariot races are acceptable, then other vehicles can certainly work.  Cars, hoverboards, exotic battle beasts etc.  Just bear in mind they need to be in some kind of arena.  Two helicopters shooting at each other wouldn't quite fit the contest.
• You can have any number of characters in the picture.  One man before the howling mob, or teams of opponents slaughtering each other.  
• Using beasts or monsters as opponents are fine.  Just remember we need at least one humanoid character in the picture.  Also, we don't like animal cruelty so think about that element carefully.
