Hey!
I am so sorry that I haven´t been online in the past ?weeks? ??
I just started University and oh boy, it´s goddamn hard and stressful.

I even had no time to announce the winner of our last FUN FUN FUN Challenge. But I´ll this weekend. I promise.

My lack of time is also the reason that I am searching for a new Contributor (or the help of the contributors that we have now, please note me).
I won´t have that much time in the future, that´s why I need help to run the group.
If you are Interested please note me, I´ll be here again on Friday.

Thank you so much for your patience
I love you all
Lola

Welcome to Manip-Contest

Welcome to Manip-Contest.

This is a monthly contest group for manipulators. Every month you will be given a challenge to be manipulated, then judged and critiqued by your peers.
The main goal of this group is to improve your manipulation skills.

There is only one prize: recognition. :boogie: on the contests. We will have also occasionally contests with prizes :heart:

Advanced: One who has practiced manipulation for a while and has won one or more contests or awards.

Beginner One who has just started or may have been manipulating for awhile but needs more practice.

Non-competitive One who does not want to be judged but would like critiques.

*********************************************

Contest Rules

To each participant.

Each contest will be different and require different things to do. Please follow them carefully.
On each piece submitted the following must be included:

You must credit each stock photo used.
You must put a link to this contest.

If you participate in the contest you must:

Critique each and every participants work. Please check out the "How to critique" tips below.

Vote for the two you feel is the best.
One for advanced and one for beginner by sending me a note kitiekat4u.deviantart.com/ with a link to the chosen piece.

Thank you very much. :hug:
