    cool Iron Avatarist - Sport Spirit

    Welcome to...
    Iron Avatarist

    The judges in this Iron Avatarist contest...

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

    Our theme this month is...
    Sport Spirit
    In this rendition of Iron Avatarist we are here to celebrate one of the most beloved hobbies of all time: Sports! The Order of the Stick will now participate in a variety of sports events, ranging from Football and Basketball, to Gymnastics and Track racing. Anything that can be considered a sport!

    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 Avatar (Any creation 120x120. Please do not submit "large versions". The avatar must be able to stand on its own.)
    Best OOTSatar (Anything based on a character, creature, or setting from the Order of the Stick comic. )
    Best Scene (Anything else.)
    Best Rookie (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. My opinion matters, dammit.

    Rules - For Participants

    Spoiler
    Show
    1. All entries must be posted by October 1, 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". Failure to do so will make the judges miss your entry.

    3. Every entry must include an italic title.

    For example:
    Best Avatar
    Best Rookie
    Haruki grabs a football and scores a home-run

    [img][/img]

    4. All entries may be submitted ONCE and for ONE single category. ONLY exception are Best Rookie Entries, which will be submitted for both categories. All entries are contestants for the Best Overall and Ruki's Choice awards by default, so there's no need to tag those.
    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 any IA competition, no exceptions.

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

    9. 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 or similar automated artwork-maker thingies.


    Rules - For Spectators

    Spoiler
    Show
    1. You are free to post and comment in the thread at any time.

    2. Please do not quote posts with images. The entry/name will suffice.

    3. If you post an image in the thread that is not a submission, we ask that you put it in a spoiler. This keeps the image from being confused with an entry and makes the judges' job easier.


    Rules - For Judges

    Spoiler
    Show
    1. Please PM me your votes before October 21, 2012. I reserve the right to disregard your judging if it does not arrive in time.

    2. Submit your votes for the winners of each category, first, second, and third place. This includes first, second and third place for Best Rookie AND for Best Overall. Best Overall is decided independently not by the results of the previous categories.

    If it makes things easier for you, just fill out the following sheet:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Best Avatar
    1.
    2.
    3.

    Best OOTSatar
    1.
    2.
    3.

    Best Scene
    1.

    Best Rookie
    1.
    2.
    3.

    Best Overall
    1.
    2.
    3.


    3. The votes will be counted as follows: A first place vote gets 3 points. A second place vote gets 2 points, a third place vote gets 1 point. After all the judges have voted, the votes are counted and added up, highest score wins. In the event of a tie, my vote will be the tie-breaker.

    4. DO NOT discuss or share your votes with other judges OR contestants.

    5. No category is declared invalid as long as there are at least two entries, so don't skip over any category. Also, you may not vote for less than three entries as long as three or more entries exist. Doing so invalidates your vote in the category.

    6. As a request, when submitting your votes to me, please do not embed the image, quote it, or link to it. Simply type out "[Entry], by [Artist]" I copy your PM into a Word Document, so including anything other than text is counter-productive. Format it as you please.

    7. On an extra note, I suggest keeping a copy of your votes, in case I make a mistake, so it can be used as a backup.


    Good luck!

    Haruki, there is a small copy-paste error in the rules (yes, I still read them). Entries are due Oct. 1, but judges' votes are due Sept. 5. Since I still haven't mastered my ESP skills yet, I think I'll need more time to do the judging!
