Contest "The Colours of Renewal" - Members Only





:wave: Hello to all members of TheFavouriteShowcase

(I wish all the best for all the other deviants, but I am sorry, this doesn't concern you :aww: )


I thought it would be fun to have a contest. I really like contests! :D
Even if you don't win, it's nice to participate - you can show your work to others!

So, what is my idea?
We are celebrating one year, we are renewing our Super Group status, it's the renewal season, after a cold, damp, grey Winter (I know, not in the South Hemisphere - but you continue to have good weather there :) so you will be with the right mood to participate too).
Let's welcome the Sun, the blue skies, the warm weather with our contest "The Colours of Renewal"!

What do I want to see?
Vibrant colours! Warming sensations! Brightness!

Participate on Traditional Art, Digital Art and Photography.


Some examples:

Only members can participate, so if you aren't a member just join us.
Take in consideration that this is a contest - to be fair, YOU (who are participating) have to vote! Not in a poll, but by note and if you don't vote, you won't be eligible to win!

The Contest folders will be open on the 1st April (I'm not fooling you :lol:) and you will have the opportunity to submit one work per month to each folder - this contest will run on all Spring Season and will end on the 21st June - so you can enter 3 works on each (contest) folder if you want.

Prizes?
On my behalf, I'm going to give a 1 year subscription to the winner of each folder.

Please, pay attention to the rules:

Some questions:

-I didn't understand anything about the logo we have to put in the comment of our deviation.(Submiting in the contest gallery isn't enough to let you know we want to participate ?... :s)

-How are we supposed to vote for our favorite photo ine the gallery ? Note ?

Thanks in advance for your answers :)
Reply
:iconegil21:
Egil21 Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2011
- Submitting to the contest gallery is enough to let me know, submitting to the contest gallery isn't enough to let others know: this is a feature club/group - we need all the advertising we can get. If you don't want to add the stamp, you don't have to, but you have to write you are entering #TheFavouriteShowcase's contest at least;
- When the time comes, I'll tell you how to vote, it would be pointless to tell you now;

I'll be happy to answer any more questions ;)

I think I have the perfect entry, too :D

But I'm having troubles submitting my entry. I can only submit to the 'Featured' or the 'Non-members work' folder. How exactly do I submit :(?
Reply
:iconegil21:
Egil21 Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2011
You couldn't submit because you weren't a member. Now that I gave my permission, you are a member and can submit to all folders :)

:iconea-dim:
Ea-Dim Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2011
Oh :).
Okay, I've submitted it to the folder and I've added some info about the contest in my artist comment. Though I didn't put the stamp there so that the artist comment would look more clean and esier to read. I hope it's okay.

Hi Elena, it's OK, I was accepting it but you left the group :confused: It was a mistake or you really wanted to left? I can't accept your entry if you aren't a member...

I'm just rearranging my groups. Please try to understand that I like my page to be as well organised as possible, and that I will join again very soon for sure.
I'm sorry if I've caused any problems :(. Just feel free to do whatever you think it's fair, - of course, you can even decline it until I re-join if you think you should.
Reply
:iconegil21:
Egil21 Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2011
Of course, you can rearrange and organize all you want, but I have a group to run and I love to have things organized too. I can't have people entering and leaving as they want just because they like to rearrange their main page.

I was just calling your attention because I thought you were mistaken - though I accept works from non-members on this group, they can't enter on the polls or contests, nor they are featured on our blogs and news articles.
And when a member leaves the group their works leave too - it's a matter of organization :)
Reply
:iconea-dim:
Ea-Dim Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2011
Yes, I understand that, and again, I'm very sorry :no:.

However, you can't say my work has left, as it hasn't even been accepted.

Now, while I hope to join soon, I really wouldn't like to cause you trouble when organizing my stuff again :).
So please, do tell if I do.

You aren't causing any trouble ;) I'm here to help wherever I can.
I'm just giving you some insight of this group's rules because you might not be aware of them (I wasn't saying that your work has left, I was warning you that no matter how many works a member submits, when the member leaves, the works leave too).
Of course, I think you realise I can't accept your work in the contest - even the title on this News Articles is clear: it says "Members Only" :)

Sorry for the late response, my messages tend to get lost :lol:
So, you are offering 300 points, right? (50x3+30x3+20x3=300).
Do you mind if I announce you are giving 100 points to the 2nd place winners? (100x3=300)

but what do you mean by me giving 100points to the 2nd place winners?
Reply
:iconegil21:
Egil21 Featured By Owner May 7, 2011
I mean your prize will go to the second place winners (3x100), 100 points to each person who wins the 2nd place on all categories. And that's all - no prize on the 1st nor on the 3rd.

Yes, that's correct: a total of nine entries :nod: One in April, one in May and one in June (on each folder).
