UPDATED DATES AND PRIZES



Hi there :wave:

Sign-ups now CLOSED!


SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATED PRIZES! =D





Hello from the admins of TheArtOfManipulation! We would really like to revive the mentoring aspect of our group and we are going to start by having a Collaboration Contest. :happybounce:

How it Will Work
For this contest, two or more artists must team up and collaborate to create an entry. One artist must be at the intermediate/expert level and the other must be a beginner. We (the admins) will decide which class you fall into and assign participants into teams (requests will be considered if there is a specific person with whom you want to partner). We hope that this contest will create new friendships and allow beginning photomanipulators to learn something new =).

The Rules

:bulletblack: You must note the group TheArtOfManipulation no later than September 4, 2012. Title the note "Collab Contest" and
    let us know that you want to participate and provide us with your time zone.

:bulletblack: We will classify your level (beginner, intermediate, expert) and assign teams. We'll let particpants know who their
    partner is by September 7, 2012

:bulletblack: The actual contest will run from September 8 to October 31, 2012. Entries must be submitted no later than
    November 1, 2012!
                  :bulletred: Only one entry per team and the entry must be a photomanipulation.

                  :bulletred: The theme for the contest is "Dark Halloween". Some blood and guts are fine, but no extreme violence/gore, rape, or racist entries will be accepted.

                  :bulletred: At least 3 stock images must be used and all stock must be properly credited for your entry to be valid.
                   If you're not sure how to credit stock you can refer to this tutorial fav.me/d4f4ymh .

                  :bulletred: The technical details of the collaboration are up to the individual teams, however each teammate must
                   contribute substantially to the work.

                  :bulletred: Have fun, work together, and learn something new!

:bulletblack:  Ten finalists will be chosen by a kuschelirmel, Aeirmid, and J-u-d-a-s (thank you all for agreeing to be our judges =D ) .
The winners will then be decided by a poll which will take place from November 8 to November 22, 2012.

:bulletblack: The winners will be announced on November 26, 2012. There will be prizes given to the first, second, and third    place   
    winners.

Note either me or the group with your timezone and I'll let you know if we have a spot for you. Yes, we would appreciate any donations. Just include in your note specifically what you want to donate and to which winners (1st,2nd,3rd, or all) you'd like to donate prizes for. Remember that since they are teams there will be 2 prizes for each place.

Thanks a bunch! =D :hug:

Wonderful idea. Would love to take part, but a) I'm in the wrong place geographically, & b) am going away at that time. Good luck!

Will you use the same journal for the updates and end-date extension? If not, I will replace the thumb :nod: ~ just send me the link :hug:

ScatteredAshe Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, we'll use the same journal for any more updates. Currently it's up-to-date with the only changes being the sign up deadline (now Sept. 4) and the date when teams will be assigned (Sept. 7), all other dates/deadlines remain the same.

Thanks again! :highfive: =D

Hey there :wave:

They don't bite, I promise :pat:

But seriously, you should participate! Any of the intermediate/experts that sign up will know they'll be working with a beginner and should be happy to help you out with anything you need. I'm a beginner too, and I'm going to participate. It is going to be a lot of fun! =D
