:bulletyellow::bulletyellow::bulletyellow::lightbulb: At this point, 11 Guides have been submitted - 19 more slots open!!:lightbulb::bulletyellow::bulletyellow::bulletyellow:

The contest opened on October 2nd and was set to close November 14th at 11:59pm PST. However, we are extending the contest deadline to encourage participation.
The Contest Will Close EITHER on December 1st OR when 30 Guides have been submitted.

:bulletred: How It Works

Entrants will write a critique guide - either in relation to giving critique in general, or to critiquing a certain medium (photography, literature, photomanipulation, etc).

A critique guide is an article outlining how to give a good critique. It can cover general critique tips, tips for critiquing a certain medium, and even ways to make your critique come across in a nice way. The guide should be easy to understand and provide solid advice to writing quality critiques.

Guides should be uploaded into the deviant's gallery. The artist's comments MUST contain a link to this journal. All guides will be collected in a folder in the club's favorites.

:bulletred: Rules for Entry

1. This contest is open to all members of dA. Critique-It staff may also enter.
2. All guides should be noted to the club with the subject line "CONTEST 2 ENTRY". Inside the note provide a link or thumb to the guide. Remember! All entries must have a link to this journal in the artist's comments.
3. Guides submitted to dA before the contest opening will be accepted as long as the artist's comments have been edited to include a link to THIS journal.
4. Only one entry per deviant for this portion of the contest.
5. All entries are due by 11:59pm PST on December 1st.
