These are impressive. I'm going to go the old fashioned route and do this by hand. I've got q pretty cool idea sketched out but I'll be honest I was confident going into this but now I'm a little worried...

As long as you change it up enough to make it resemble something new

What does that mean? It sounds like you're creating a loose grey area where people will push the boundaries of plagiarism. When HBFT and Mana were doing this, there was a marked transition to "entirely original work." Why is that changing?

So I can make a collage of terrifying pictures and place the Mutant in the centre and that can be my entry?

You have one entry and if you choose to use that as your entry you are more then welcome to. An entry doesn't mean you will win something, that is why I would advice everyone to give it their best.

That means that every person is responsible for their entries, all entries are welcomed but that doesn't mean all entries will be making the cut.

Am I understanding you correctly that you're cutting some entries before submitting the entries to the pool of judges?

So it works like this:

 

Contest runs from day 1 to day 7. At the end of Day 7 all the entries are compiled into a big pool to be judged. Once we have our pool we start judging each entry and cutting them down until we have our top 5. 

 

Any other questions?

Yes, thanks!

 

Who are the judges? Are there still judges outside of the contest team? Are all judges votes weighed equally?

 

The answer to the question here confuses me. It seems like you're surprised the contestant would want to draw something. How else would you create original poster art? Am I missing something?

 

Can contestants submit an "anonymous" version just for judging? That's been requested previously . For example, can I blur out my name so that it doesn't bias judges?

 

Can I take someone else's entry, and substantially modify it and still win? Do you note the order submissions come in for the judges?

The judges are members of the community and social team. All judges votes are weighed equally.

Am I missing something?  I think there was just some miscommunication, I want to open this contest to as many people as possible. If you're talented in drawing then I encourage you to draw, if your talent is with 3D modelling I encourage that.  Every artist has their own special set of skills and I want to encourage people to use whatever their good at. 

 

Can contestants submit an "anonymous" version just for judging? That's been requested previously . For example, can I blur out my name so that it doesn't bias judges? Would this anonymous version be: All images are pulled into a main document for judges to look through (this allows them to avoid bias from community comments). I can inquire about an anonymous version for judging. 

 

Can I take someone else's entry, and substantially modify it and still win? Do you note the order submissions come in for the judges?

You cannot take someone else’s already entered entry  to modify it and expect to win. We take note of when orders are submitted and apply it to our main judging doc as soon as we see them.

You might be taking this a bit too seriously :P And whoever is neg voting you is as well.

 

Schneller and WG want a fair contest for everybody, but they also want a FUN contest.

 

Have fun, make your entry, and if something shady happens, PM Schneller and WG will take care of it.

 

EDIT: course, last time you threw a small stink on a contest and got neg voted to oblivion you won a free tank...so I can't blame you for doing it again :teethhappy:

I get negged in EVERY contest thread.

 

Anyway, I'll take copyright infringement as seriously as I want to.

 

EDIT: I take offense at that. Seriously.

Cool. In the past that wasn't always the case.

Great, even if it's something you can't really consider until next contest.

 

Can I take someone else's entry, and substantially modify it and still win? Do you note the order submissions come in for the judges?

You cannot take someone else’s already entered entry  to modify it and expect to win. We take note of when orders are submitted and apply it to our main judging doc as soon as we see them.

In my mind, what I meant was "artwork created by someone else for another contest, or even just fan art." I did a poor job explaining that. And of course it should be understood that the artwork would be put through Photoshop filters (several) and maybe even flipped.
