Reaper has approved prizes in each category:
 
1st prize $50
2nd prize $30

Image Enhancement:
 
-- digital enhancement ("Photoshopping") of your entry is strictly prohibited.
-- no clone brush, healing brush, airbrush, or other brush work. Fix your paint with paint, not with Photoshop.
-- no adding or removing background elements from the image
-- if you add a logo or a watermark Reaper cannot use your image in their gallery. Note that if your image is selected for the Reaper gallery, you will be credited by name under the image.
-- cropping, global color balance, and global level adjustments are allowed ("global" means "the entire image." You may not "pop" colors by only selecting some areas for level adjustment.
 
Non-Reaper contest:

Interesting question. Since there is not a separate category for busts/single figures, not sure if it would matter if dioramas were included as well.

 

Let me look back through previous years and see if this has ever come up. Also, if people have any opinions/objections/comments on if dioramas should or should not be included in the non-Reaper category, feel free to chime in.

 

Update: Upon looking back through previous years' contests, I couldn't find where this particular question has been addressed. Busts were added to the non-Reaper group by forumite discussion so I say if forumites would like non-Reaper dioramas to be added to the non-Reaper group, we can do that. What does everyone think?

Non Reaper basically covers it all, Busts, Minis and I think a diorama would be fine.

Some of Ub3r's submissions last year had WIPs, didn't they?

I guess my blue lion bust counts then? He was started on January 11th, finished February 17th.

Yay! I am glad. I'm not able to attend or participate in other challenges/contests due to timing, so this is quite fortuitous ^_^

      I'm a bit of a glutton for punishment, so have managed to talk myself into another rainbow dragon... Since I have ol' Pathfinder Red sitting in the Drawer of Doom and no real plans for him, I thought I'd randomize him (not that I don't have enough other projects that haven't been finished (or even started))..
      So, here goes:
      3 Star challenge on Pathfinder Red (#89001)
      Primary : Blush Pink (although I might substitute in Breast Cancer Pink since I have 3 bottles of that from last month!)
      Secondary: Brilliant Green (needs to  be ordered or fetched from the FLGS - I have Forest Green but that's too dark to match, i think)
      Tertiary: Heather Blue (do not have this, but do have a Sample bottle from a past order that is very close and will be used in its place.. 
       

       
      I smidged some paint on a sheet of paper for comparison and have decided that Blush Pink is much brighter than BCPink, so I'll probably use the Blush (unless I decide to go thematic again and donate this fellow to a survivor since I know a few).  Also, Forest Green is indeed way too dark to substitute in for Brilliant Green..

       
      Here he is in all his boxed plasticky glory!

      So I've finally joined. Ebonwrath was the first dragon I managed to grab from my pile of Bones. Now assembled and brown line primed.
       
      Here are the results, based on my modified list.

      15: Alien Goo, main
      3: HD Fireball Orange, secondary
      17: Solid Blue, accent

       
      So this is YOUR doing Pezler!
       
      Guess I'll try for the 3* challenge. It'll feel like my early days of painting when I owned a very limited palette.
