Valentine's Day Painting Contest - Rules and Discussion

Recommended Posts

Would anyone be interested in a painting contest for the Valentine's Day?


Simple rules: theme "love", 2 months painting time, few judges (no public voting), any manufacturer allowed.





Valentine’s Day Painting Contest:


-- theme: “LOVEâ€

-- entries must be Reaper figures (in production or OOP)

-- the deadline for entries is Feb 10, 2017 at 11:59 pm CST

-- you may enter as many times as you like, but only one prize per person will be awarded

-- each entry needs to be uploaded to the appropriate thread. Please attach your entries using the forum uploading feature or hotlink from the Inspiration Gallery. We want to make sure they're visible at all times.

-- you may submit between one and four images. They do not need to be stitched into a single image file.

-- you are allowed to enter miniatures that will also be entered into other contests that might overlap ours.

-- the judges or Reaper reserves the right to remove entries if deemed inappropriate, but we're pretty laid back here and this is just to cover our butts.

-- the judges and Reaper can clarify and amend rules at will.


Reaper has provided prizes:


1st prize $40

2nd prize $20

3rd prize $10

judges' choice $10 (might be replaced by random drawing prize)


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.

Plenty of time, official announcement is planned for mid-December. I have one month to discuss the concept with forum members, find judges and get Kit's approval (and maybe some prize support)
