Well, it was bound to happen again sometime, right? I know it's only February and all, but seeing as this is a very long competition I saw it fitting to start it up now.

This is the Official Sign-up thread

after looking over the old thread, this will be a sign up for both contestants AND judges. sign up if you want to be a contestant, or if you want to be a judge. please specify which you are in fact signing up for.

Once there are 50 contestants signed up, you will be divided into ten groups of 5. You will then be given a category for drawing (I.E food, music, etc.) and will have 2 days to complete your drawing. if the picture is not posted by the 48 hour deadline then your group is disqualified. judges will vote for their favorite pictures, and the top 2 pictures will move on to the next round.

if you don't know the original rules, look at this thread: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=365467&highlight=Paint+Competition



The Rules

  • The drawings must be done by your group...plagiarism is ridiculous for this type of thing anyway.
  • Nothing innapropriate. And please, try to be serious.
  • Constructive criticism is welcome, but don't flame.


I think that about covers it for now.

if you have any questions, PM skeptapotamus or the experience.

How long is sign up going to last? It should be in the first post.

Is this also Judges sign up?

no, it's not the judge's sign up, that doesn't start until after the entries are submitted.

there will be a maximum of 50 people signing up, anymore and it might be chaotic.

i think it should also be said that i'll take 5 more names after the list is complete in case anyone drops out or is disqualified.

Well, it would be more time efficient to have the judges sign up with the contestants and specify that they are judges, because the entries will be sitting around for a week or so while the judges get set.

And to get all the entries in, thats about three weeks depending on how many groups the contestants have been split up into. And then there is the 2nd round, where the winners from each group of the first round submit a new drawing, and so on and so forth.


I'd have the judges sign up now, so the competition can be rolling once the entries are submitted.

It might be best for you if you're going to run the competition this year to go back and read the old threads to understand more about how the structure of this thing works.

I've been a judge for the previous ones, but I think I'll be a contestant this time. So, sign me up please.

Would I be correct in thinking this is pixel art?

i would enter, but I suck at the line work.

The power to feel with others give.

For sake of the competition, read this thread.

It's only fair that it be structured like it has been the previous years. It's more efficient for everyone. The info is pretty vague up to this point, and I think it's best early on to get the rules and the structure set.

I see now, looks like some real talent.
I used to be big into the graphics community, though mostly Photoshop skills so I'll sit back and watch this one.

Be a judge.

Hey Robbie_n_strat, for people considering judging, would you be able to write up a little blurb on what judges are looking for in terms of quality entries? It can be pretty intense, and any words from the wise might help.

Man...I've kinda hijacked this thread.
