Art Contest
« on: April 30, 2019, 07:36:56 PM »

Come on in, peeps, the board is fine.

Well, not time for the contest yet.  This thread is going up early because change is in the air!  Rules aren't final, but they're in the works.  During the last Awards Committee meeting I asked questions on how to better shape this year's Art Contest to be more fun and fair.  So far the idea is to:

*Keep the three skill categories (Beginner, Amateur, Experienced), or have different categories for separate mediums (Drawing, Painting, Video, etc.)

*Have multiple ways to win (such as: Best in Show, Best Traditional Art, Best Digital Art, Most Unique, etc.)

*Stick to a strict theme.  Maybe a few to select from, who knows!

The reason this thread is up early is because I'd like some feedback as to how people would like to see this go.  Please read the logs below to get an idea of the conversations we've had so far.

Most importantly, though, I'd like you to throw some themes at me!  Tell me the overall topic this year's Art Contest will be, and at some undetermined future date I'll pull a name out of a hat and whammo bammo that'll be our theme!

Here are some ideas already tossed into the fray:
*Beach Episode
*Luigi has a strange encounter at the grocery store
*A normal day at Dr Mario's clinic
*Daisy makes a new friend
*(character) discovers the internet
*(character) and (character); role reversal
*After the Mario Party



tl;dr

We're changing the rules for the Art Contest!  Post in here to tell us how you want it to be done, and also share some theme ideas you want to throw into the lottery!

19:46   Gabumon   oh, youre gonna single out one?
19:47   Anton{Politoed}   that was the idea but then I thought about it and that seems like a lot of No Fun
19:47   Gabumon   I thought maybe you could have a pool of options for people to pick from
19:47   Anton{Politoed}   so maybe do a lottery to pick like 3 or whatever to pick from yeah

i feel like, attacked and stuff
nah i feel reasonable and intelligent enough to understand that videos and images arent exactly fair competition against each other. having different brackets for each medium would work if theres gonna be more than one non-image submission but id rather just enforce a 'static images only' rule

Heya, so my goal right now is by the 25th I will post the formal rules, schedule, and themes for the contest!  I'm intending on it following a similar schedule to previous years, with submissions being accepted starting June 1st - July 13th.  A day or so before the formal rules go up I will do a blind selection of which themes we will be using from the list generated from valid suggestions here, so if you want to throw in any ideas for that or further suggestions for rules and structure now is the time!
