:star::star::star:CONTESTS!:star::star::star:
Yeeeeeees, well. After I did the Pikachu contest, I said I'd do another, didn't I? And, well, this is it!

Oh, and you didn't read wrong, I DID say contestS.

There are TWO contests, running simultaneously.
ONE large contest, with a little more complex and demanding theme, but with greater prize rewards, and ANOTHER ,smaller contest with a far more open theme, but smaller prizes (but both, hopefully fun!)

:bulletgreen:BOTH contests run from today until the 16th of August:bulletgreen:



~~~~~~~~~~~
:star:Large Contest:star:
:heart:The Theme is Girl Love:heart:
Why Girl Love? Because there's shite loads of yaoi and shounen-ai out there, quite a lot of fake-lesbians tonguing each other's orifices, but no where NEAR enough GENUINE loving pictures of the lady couples.

:heart:What do I have to do?
:bulletgreen:Well, basically create a piece depicting girl love, love between girls.
:bulletgreen:There must be at least two girls in the piece.
:bulletgreen:Any medium! Drawing, painting, sculpture... be creative :3
:bulletgreen:Genuine affection. I love seeing genuine affection and love, cuteness or passion or both! But no porn. No porn, and no lustful gazes into the audience as if they're inviting a bit of penis to join them. See, that's the sorta thing I'm sick of seeing, hence the contest!
:bulletgreen:Would love to see original characters, but if you really can't think of ANY lasses to draw, you can always include one of my girls (aside Nat, unless you would include her girlfriend). HOWEVER, this will NOT earn you more points, as I have a judging panel of 3 other ladies, so as not to have bias!
:bulletgreen:Submit before the 16th of August

:heart:And what are the prizes?
TH'FUN PART!

:star:Smaller contest:star:
:orange:The theme is Fruit:orange:
Why fruit? Because it's wonderfully diverse in it's colours, it's tangy, sweet and good for you!

:orange:What do I have to do?
:bulletgreen: Create a piece with the theme of fruit
:bulletgreen: Totally open. You can do still life, anthro, animals, humans... want to draw a girl with strawberries for hair? Go for it! Want to bake a fruit cake, go for it! Any medium, be creative :3

~~~~~~~~~~~
Judges
I have a judging panel of 3 ladies accompanying me on this contest!
:icondrazzi:, :iconglowstickjuice: and :iconthesylverlining: :3
With the four of us judging, there will be less chance of bias and there'll be a lot more input! None of the girls really even know each other, so it's perfect!



Rules
:bulletgreen: Entries for either contest must be in by the 16th of August.
:bulletgreen: No porn, no racist material, no hateful shit... y'know the drill.
:bulletgreen: No badgering my judges or myself to "let you/let my friend please, please please win". No emotional blackmail, no "But my mother's sister's dog's brother just died and winning would REALLY boost my confidence". The winner will be picked on merit, not on sob story.
:bulletgreen: You CAN enter both contests, but you CANNOT win both.
:bulletgreen: You may enter as many times as you like :3
:bulletgreen: The manga distribution will be as follows. Winner of the girl love contest gets first pick, then the winner of the fruit contest, and then the runner up of the girl love contest.
:bulletgreen: NEW entries only!
~~~~~~~~~~~


LET ME MAKE THIS CLEAR! The GIRL LOVE contest is the one with the larger prizes. Please do not enter the fruit one, expecting to win the 12 month subscription, and then say you didn't understand.

I will also be featuring every entry for both contests in my journal after the winners are announced





Any questions? Feel free to ask :3

16th of august, GMT, I live in Ireland.
If it wasn't expressed here, it was certainly expressed in a journal update.

Look.
I am on GMT. I said that the deadline was the 16th. By that definition alone, you still would have been late because you posted it on the 16th and not before the deadline, but I clarified for some that I was still giving people until the evening of the 16th GMT on my front page.

Hours before you posted your entry, I updated that the contest was closed and judging was taking place, on the front page. This was LAST night.
It's hardly as if this was kept a secret.

Regardless, my judges had already picked their favourites, and the winners still stand, and you were not in time to participate. Of course I am going to run a contest in the timezone of my own country, I cannot make allowances for every time zone.

We can argue about this all day, but it changes nothing.

The deadline was AUGUST 16th. I WAS ON TIME. If wanted it to be GMT time., Okay. BUT PUT IT ON THE RULES. Doesnt matter if you posted a update- you didnt write anything on the RULES page. I was following the rules. DEADLINE: AUGUST 16th.
But now, really, doesnt matter. I didnt expect to win or something like that. I just wanted to participate.

AND AGAIN- I WASNT LATE.

I ALLOWED you to participate in the fact that I have not only faved and commented on your work, I actually featured it ON the entries page!

The judges decisions were already just about finalised before your entry.

deadline 16th august, means entries STOP on the 16th, even without any more information.

Actually it wasnt said anywhere. The only thing it was said was that the deadline was 16th august. So, again, I was on time.

this entry, which was left on my front page, was updated throughout the 15th and the 16th, stressing that it was evening time of the 16th GMT when I'd be closing it. Then, at 9 pm GMT, it was updated with a notice of closure, which was bolded and left on the front page until the latest journal entry.

Throughout that journal, people asked me when it would be closing, and I reiterated that it would be evening time, GMT.

Even if you did, somehow miss all of this, the deadline was the 16th. As in, all entries must be in before the 16th. By that definition, anything AFTER it hits the 16th would have been disqualified, so you still would have been disqualified even if I was considering every single time zone in the world, because 18 hours ago, when you submitted, it was the 16th of August.

Eeek, Can we have it in on the 16th of August or? -Is about to head to a wedding party and still has to finish shading her entry-

Dude, this is so weird, the reason I can't extend my contest is because I'm heading to a wedding pretty soon after the deadline too!

Yes! The deadline is the 16th, but that means half way through the day/evening of the 16th, rather than midnight and it's all done. I will be accepting entries on the 16th :3

It's looking great so far, I hope you get the chance to finish!

Yes, a week is quite a short amount of time for me~ Hahahaha~ *sloooow worker*

Question, though: if by any slim chance I win, is there anyway the money from the sub to dA go somewhere else? I actually don't support this site and am not really here all that often...

Well, the majority of the subscriptions are donated by Sal' so, it would have to be discussed with her on that end I recon. I often ask winners would they like to donate their subscription to a friend, but that's generally all I would do.
