24 (who?)


Journal Entry: Fri Nov 15, 2013, 3:54 AM

I've been thinking of doing a contest several times now, and once I almost held one but then I forgot all about it.

But I think I want to start a contest for real this time. And have the 1st price be a 12 month premium membership..! :o (and perhaps a drawing of some form, either digital or traditional, we'll see.. :3 )

So, kind of a big contest, I guess..? But I've so far no idea what the contest should be about. I want it to be a contest that everyone can enter if they want to, no matter if they're an artist or a writer, sculptor or whatever. But at the same time, it's a bit hard for me to do contests, because contests are about picking a winner, someone who's "better" than the other contestants, and I personally would feel incredibly mean to judge others like that. I don't want people to get upset or feel down or whatever, you know?
So, I might need a few people to help me judge, like, finding the top 10 or something, and then picking the winner based on a public vote, kind of... I feel that would be way better for me.

But, questions first:

Are you guys up for a contest?

And what kind of contest would you guys like? Like, should it be a certain theme for the contest, some words or sentences to work with/illustrate/write about? Any ideas? :)

Oh! This sounds neat, especially after reading some of the comments.
The idea of having a contest with  a set theme and then some different categories like writing, drawing, sculpting.etc of your OCs seems like an interesting idea.

I'd totally be down for a contest.

A contest sounds cool, and a theme would be great, themes are easily applied to multiple types of art.  Maybe it could be holiday related as some have suggested, but I think that would be too cliche and expected, not to mention it would be more restrictive.  A slightly broader theme would help better, but it doesn't need to be too broad, because then it will again be problematic and less theme-y.  Perhaps something related to your story, or something, I don't know.  I'm not the best with contest ideas... but anyway it sounds fun.

I think it would be awesome if you chose a own character, that we were going to draw/Animate/Write about/Sculpte and everything else you can do ^^

If you want to have other prizes I can do sketch prizes for any winners or runner ups :>
I did five sketch prizes for ~Shioiri's big contest, just figured I'd offer so there'd be more chance of entries still getting something uvu

Love the idea of a contest!  I think it'd be fun to have other OCs interact with yours (maybe something holiday themed??)
