:pointr: CLUB MEMBERS ONLY [to become a member, just add Critique-It to your watch-list!]

:bulletred: Contest Deadline

:bulletyellow::bulletyellow::bulletyellow::lightbulb: At this point, 12 Critiques have been submitted - 18 more slots open!!:lightbulb::bulletyellow::bulletyellow::bulletyellow:

The contest opened on October 5th and was set to close November 9th at 11:59pm PST. However, we are extending the contest deadline to encourage participation.
The contest will close on December 1st OR when 30 Critiques have been submitted.


:bulletred: How It Works

There's a special folder labeled Contest Pieces in the club gallery. The pieces in this folder have been anonymously donated to the club specifically for this contest. Their creators will be credited at the end of the contest.

Club members should browse the folder and choose a piece to critique. They'll note their critiques to the club. The comments will be disabled on the pieces so that no one can post their critiques on the piece itself. They must be noted to the club. This is to keep all critiques original.


:bulletred: Rules for Entering

1. Only Critique-It members may enter this contest. To join the club, just add us to your watchlist. (Critique-It staff are not eligible for this portion of the contest.)
2. All critiques must be noted to the club with the subject line "CONTEST 1 ENTRY". In the note provide a link or thumb to the piece being critiqued. Paste your critique directly into the body of the note. DO NOT submit the critique as a deviation.
3. Critiques must be thorough and well written. This means consistant use of grammar and punctuation and a minimal amount of "chatspeak" - in other words, keep it professional.
4. Each member may submit 2 critiques.
5. All entries are due by 11:59pm PST on December 1st.

And yet, I don't think we're reaching enough people...

And other clever ideas? Perhaps the workshop will help. :)
