(Please read everything as it is all very important)

:skullbones:  The contest begins on February 1, 2016 and ends on April 30, 2016.  

:skullbones:  The judging will take place from May 1, 2016 to May 10, 2016 with winners being announced on May 11, 2016.  

:skullbones:  Once the announcement has been made, please note Mattsma with your email and mailing address for your prizes by May 16, 2016 to ensure an expeditious sending of your prizes :D

:skullbones:  When the winners are announced, if you would like a critique of your work, we will gladly note you the results.  Please note SpitfireFae or Katjakay with the request.

:new: UPDATE:  You may submit only one picture for the contest, HOWEVER, that picture can have more than one stitched item or detailed spot in it :D

:new: UPDATE:  Yer judges have had a serious discussion about a gamer subject that has arisen.  The question was, "Can I stitch something from Harry Potter, Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings? "  

As many of you know, first were the books, then the movies and then the games.

The answer is no.  The game has to be first before books and movies.  If it is not true game, that submission will not count as a true submission to this contest.

May the wind fill your sails and carry you safely to your destination   Sailing the seven seas by CookiemagiK

I bit off a bit more than I could chew with my submission so I won't make it in time but I am loving all the submissions so far! Can't seem to pick a favourite. :heart:
People are really loving this contest, haha.

Sure! :D I'll move it into the folder for you.
Superspud's avatar
Would I be allowed to enter a piece I stitched a while ago into this? Or does it have to be a recent project?
pinkythepink's avatar
It needs to be a new one. :)
Mattsma's avatar
If you have not submitted it to dA previously, then it would be considered new.  However, if it were submitted previously then no, it would have to be a new piece :D
Superspud's avatar
Okay cool, thank you!
