Yours truly ~ watercolorists admin staff
bunneh icon3 


Hello!
kaomoji set 2 59/67 

In our AquaChallenge announcement journal we said about the voting this: "In case there will be more than 20 entries, the admins of the group will choose the best 20 entries and place them on the semi-final polls."

Well Panda Emoji-10 (Blush) [V1] ...the entries are so awesome, that it's a heartbreaking decision if we do so. Blue Blush

That's why...Tard Idea 

We now kindly ask you to choose from ALL 3 semi-final polls* the artwork which you like the most.
The first 3 artworks which receive the most votes in each semi-final poll, will go to the final poll where the winners will be chosen.

1st SEMI-FINAL poll -> 9 artworks to choose from -> top 3 go to final poll
2nd SEMI-FINAL poll -> 9 artworks to choose from -> top 3 go to final poll
3rd SEMI-FINAL poll -> 8 artworks to choose from -> top 3 go to final poll
--------------------------------------------------------------
FINAL poll -> 9 semi-final artworks to choose from -> 3 AquaChallenge winners


AquaChallenge - Voting poll 3 by TokyoMoonlight


The time to vote for semi-final and final will be each 5 days.
In case there are for the top 3 places equal number of votes ("a tie"), we will extend the voting for 1 day.

Please choose the winning artwork based on the relation to the given theme, creativity and effort.

Remember: Everyone has one vote - also the participants!

*3 semi-polls are the maximum of polls we will ever have...don't worry :iloveit: :lolgiggle:

Each MONTHLY FEATURE is divided into 3 parts:

1.) WATERCOLOR DOWNPOUR - The Best watercolor paintings of a certain month
Each month the best 10 watercolor paintings are chosen and are added into a voting poll, where all the members can choose the best painting from that month. The "winning" painting is then showcased on our group's front page (on the left side of the page) and in the gallery section (in the same spot).

2.) WATERCOLOR DROPS - Category Highlights
This section is meant to show best watercolor paintings each from a different category. That way it's not all about landscapes, or portraits, illustrations, the more popular folders. But that also other categories get recognition.

All the artists which are feature in both mentioned sections can't be featured again for the next 6 month. Why? That way it's prevented, that the same artists are featured again and again. We wish that as many as possible get a place and opportunity to get their watercolor paintings shown.


3.) AQUAShare - A showcase of suggested watercolor paintings 
This section is meant for our members, so that they also get the opportunity to decide what will be featured. Each month we give you a keyword/theme and you can suggest your own watercolor painting and/or from someone else. All the suggested artworks are then featured in the next Monthly journal.

Like in the other two section, here the 6 month rule doesn't apply. Each member can suggest paintings each month. The are no restrictions.
