    wink Iron Avatarist - Ponies. Ponies everywhere.

    Welcome to...
    Iron Avatarist

    The judges in this Iron Avatarist contest...

    {table]||||
    Oblivion
    |
    Serpentine

    Kid Kris

    The Count Alucard

    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

    Our theme this month is...
    Ponies! Ponies everywhere!
    With the rising popularity of Ponies on the Internet, I figured it might be interesting to shake things up a bit and have an Iron Avatarist based on Ponies. Do your best, everypony!

    Remember: All artwork must be your own. Do not take, alter, or use any of the The Giant's art. Thanks.

    Categories
    There will be a First through Third place award for each of the following:

    Best Ponytar (Any creation of 120x120 or smaller. Please do not include "large versions". The avatar must stand alone.)
    Best OOTS Ponytar (Any OOTS-based crossover.)
    Most Magical Equestrian (Any character (or small group) larger than the above.)
    Strongest Friendship (Any full scene larger than the above.)
    Best Rookie Entry (only applicable to those who have never won a prize in any of these competitions before)

    And, of course, the Best Overall award.

    And as an extra, The Ruki's Choice Award, which I will give to whatever entry I personally like the most from any category.

    Rules

    1. All entries must be posted by February 1st, 2012. at Noon, EST.

    2. Every entry must include a bolded introduction as to what category you're entering in. Additionally, if you've never won anything in a previous contest, remember to add "Best Rookie Entry".

    3. Every entry must include an italic introduction as to what your entry is.

    For example:
    Best Ponytar
    RainbowDash's Wings got nothing on Ruki's

    [img][/img]

    4. All entries may be submitted ONCE and for ONE single category. Exceptions to this include: Best Rookie Entries will be submitted for both categories, and all entries are contestants for the Best Overall and Ruki's Choice awards.
    4.b. Another exception, when submitting a large scene, it is allowed to submit one single character from the scene as an Avatar. For example: If you submit a large comic, you may submit the character used for that comic separately.

    5. You cannot re-submit an entry previously submitted to an IA competition.

    6. Do not use spoilers. It makes the judge's job that much harder, and they may do you harm.

    7. Only the avatarist who created the avatar may submit it.

    8. Please do not quote images. The entry/name will suffice.

    9. Keep entries within PG-13 or better. Adhere to forum rules.

    10. You are allowed to enter any artwork created before the contest, but you are limited to two pre-made entries per category. There is no limit for entries made for the contest. This rule still requires you to adhere to rule 5.

    11. You may not submit entries made by character creators.

    Good luck!
