*Judging method explanation below*



Theme

Our first contest, "The Fantastical Firsts",  is the winning theme chosen by our members!
Bullet; Blue  Your submission will portray an image of people in a fantastical setting of your choice 
Bullet; Blue  Genres may include: fantasy, sci-fi, steampunk, weird,  post-apoc, myths, legends, folklore, faerie tales, etc 

"Fantastic art is a broad and loosely defined art genre. It is not restricted to a specific school of artists, geographical location or historical period. It can be characterized by subject matter – which portrays non-realistic, mystical, mythical or folkloric subjects or events – and style, which is representational and naturalistic, rather than abstract - or in the case of magazine illustrations and similar, in the style of manga.
Fantastic art explores fantasy, "space fantasy" (a subgenre which incorporates subjects of alien mythology and/or alien religion), imagination, the dream state, the grotesque, visions and the uncanny."
Contest Rules

Bullet; Red Any BAS member may participate, with the exception of judges

Judging and Prizes

Bullet; Black Judging guidelines: All appropriately submitted pieces will be judged on creativity, aesthetics, effort and thematic relevance
Bullet; Black Judges: TheNaughtyPirate, corpor8chic, Djake,   Poses17 
The judges will choose from all submissions for 1st, 2nd, 3rd place and an honorable mention
In addition, there will be a poll for all BlackArtSociety  members to vote to choose a Members Choice Winner and a Members Choice Honorable Mention
Bullet; Black Bullet; White Judging Method: Judging the winners will be a combination of the judge's choices and the member's choices by poll. During the time period that the polls are open, the judges will also be considering, discussing and voting for their choices. The polls do not necessarily indicate winners, as there may be submissions chosen simultaneously by both Judges and Members for the top prize positions. In that event, the submissions will be granted their prize position interchangeably between the judge's and member's votes. At the end of the voting period, the votes of both will be seen and only then will the winners be announced. :) 
Bullet; Black Participants may only win once.
Bullet; Black Donations are not required but are greatly appreciated!  All :points: donations go to BASdonations (please include what it is for in your donation comment!).
