Contest Time - New Beginnings and Prize Call

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 5, 2012, 4:44 AM
Good morning, afternoon and/or evening wonderful people of DeviantArt!!

As you can probably see from the journal title, Tasastock and I are holding a competition!!! Let me hear a hell yeah for competitions and fun :lol:
The theme is New Beginnings and it's open to all visual art mediums and there are both Beginner and Advanced categories so you should all have a mosey on over and get creative, get inspired and get crackin.

We are also taking this opportunity to do a prize call and help get a most excellent list of wibble-worthy prizes to offer our winners! Any offers for prizes including exclusive stock, subscriptions, points, journal features, commissions, prints, rum, gold stars, knick-knacks and whatever other awesome thingamabobs you can think up will be greatly appreciated and offers should be directed to this special prize gathering journal: Any Help Please?IMAGINE THIS ENTIRE JOURNAL AS A BIG PLEADING HUG
I kinda mistyped that as "pleasing" which also works.
A BIG PLEASING PLEADING HUG
Me and charligal-stock are going to be starting a contest soon. it's going to launch as soon as we iron out the finer points. I think we will soon, but until then think of it as a wonderful surprise!
Right now I would love it if any of you would be so kind as to donate any prizes for the contest: exclusive stock (if you stock), subscriptions, points, journal features, commissions, art, cheesecake, rum, prints, knick-knacks (not knickers. it's not that kind of contest) anything really. :)
I will state that once you donate a prize, can you PLEASE please please please PLEASE honour giving it to the prize winners? Last time I had to sub people out myself with extra points, subs and drawings, and I always donate these anyway but only as many as I can afford. Play nice kiddies ;)
Edit: I also forgot to mention that there will be two categories to the contes

Donating prizes still allows you to enter the contest. That way you can also give yourself an awesome prize (along with all the others you could win) if you WIN!!

Now the lovely Tasastock has done a wonderful job of writing up all the rules and the prize list so far... so I'm going to place said excerpt here:

THE RULES Also a necessary evil. Otherwise you monkeys would riot all over the damned place and there would be mess everywhere... we can't have that, so instead we have the ruuuuules.
:bulletpurple:  Must be a new creation! - No dredging up something old from your gallery because it kinda fits the theme. We want to get you creating NEW NEW NEW stuff! We like to get you working hard for your goodies. Nothing uploaded prior to 05/12/2012 (11pm UTC (damn I had to look up what timezone I was in then..) which is midday GMT for those of you looking at me and starting to dribble)
:bulletpurple:  Must be visual art. Any visual medium that tickles your pickle! traditional/digital drawing/painting, photomanipulation, photography, sculpture, knitting, vomit (i am joking... I don't really want to see artful vomit.. especially after I've just eaten or something guys.) Just keep it visual, not written. No poetry or literature. I'm reading Joe Abercrombie at the moment, he's all I wanna read right now :P
:bulletpurple:  You have until 31st January 9.30pm UTC to complete your masterpieces.
:bulletpurple:  Your entries must be sent to Tasastock in a NOTE entitled "BEGINNINGS CONTEST ENTRY". Doesn't have to be capital letters. But that would get my attention quicker I suppose. I love capslock - ain't nothing like screaming through other people's monitors eh?  Your note MUST include a link to your deviation (otherwise the note would be pointless :P) and state which category, beginners or advanced, that you wish your entry to be included into. I will add your work to my favourites for the contest and leave a comment merely to tell you that I have seen the work. If I comment but I don't fave, yell at me because your work needs to be in my contest collection come judging time.
:bulletpurple:  You cannot try to enter advanced work into the beginners category. That's mean and tricksy.
:bulletpurple:  What makes you "beginner" or "advanced" isnt down to how long you've been doing art. It's about skill and quality. I mentioned years before because skill is gained with practice but that doesnt mean that you don't got natural talent honey. ;) If you want an idea of what has been the sort of quality of work for beginners and advanced, check out the results of some of my previous contests to get an idea. Beginner: [link] Advanced: [link]
:bulletpurple:  No plagarism or theft. That ain't cool kiddos. If you use stock, credit! Follow all ze rules. You can use me and charligal-stock's work if you want, but it's not a requirement and it doesn't get you anything extra ;) Just use whatever stock is best for your idea if you are going to be using stock. However, google is not a valid resource. Anything created with copyrighted materials will be disqualified.
:bulletpurple:  You can enter up to three entries.
:bulletpurple:  If you have been so kind as to donate a prize, this does not stop you from entering the contest. No, no feel free! (Likewise if you wish to donate a prize to the contest (we are always accepting donations) please leave a comment here: fav.me/d5n3xji :))
:bulletpurple:  All praise to allmighty Cthulhu! CTHULHU F'TAGN!


And yes, I don't half like the sound of my own voice. Why wouldn't I? I SAY AWESOME THINGS

Now we get to the good stuff. This is top quality produce we have right here for you. Come a little closer my darlings... Don't tell the cops... Here I gots you... the priiiiiizes

It is important to note that the prize list can and will change as we recieve mawr donations. I shift things around to even things out between the two categories, and stuff I donate will totally change cause I donate extra if things get uneven. As I mentioned before, I'm going to say again if you guys weren't listening. If you wish to donate a prize to this splendiferous cause, please leave a comment here: [link] donating does not stop you from entering! Only judging does. So boo, Tasa cant claim any of these goodies! :(

And remember! New work before the 31st January!
Note ME ME ME with your entry! include which category you'd like to enter
Feel free to pimp this contest like the cheap whore that it is!!! I know I will be. phwwwoaaaarr!!

The links to the examples of beginners and advanced work aren't working for some reason. They're not even clickable.
