Just a quick note that the moderator applications for the journal folder are still open! Now on to the cool stuff!
My fellow club mod =Vampire-Sacrifice
and I had ideas for a contest for a while, then I had real life slap me in the face a bit, but now we're back to business...finally!
We are going to recycle the much-loved but very neglected theme of "Special Edition!" We want you to create the pony you would have most liked to see as a special edition pony in the MLP toy line. It can be seasonal if you want, but don't restrict yourself to just that simply because of the time of year! If you thought that there should have been a hamburger-themed pony somewhere along the line, now is the time to create it!
Entries of ponies in non-FiM format is strongly encouraged. We want you all to remember that this club is dedicated to ALL My Little Pony generations, not just the new one!
The winners will be chosen not by us, the mods, but by you, the members! Read below for details.
1. Contest is open to members of the My Little Pony Club only, so if you'd like to submit an entry but you're not a member, please join the club! Here is a link to the rules for joining: [link]
2. Please follow the rules of the club and deviantART when submitting your work.
3. Each member may submit up to five pieces of art!
4. Digital drawings, traditional drawings, customs, and pony photography are all acceptable entries.
5. Enter new, original work only. Please don't re-use art you've created for other contests or people.
6. Submissions must be received by May 5,2013 by 11:59 PM CST. No entries will be accepted after this time. That's a whole month!
DO NOT SUBMIT YOUR ART TO DA!! We want this contest to be as impartial as possible, so please don't post your art for all your friends until after the contest is over. Please submit your entry via note to the club, title the note "Contest," and then link to a non-deviantART website such as Photobucket or Snapfish containing your submission. If you need help with hosting your picture, then note the club so that we can assist you. When we receive all the contest submissions, we will post all the entries for voting. Once voting has closed and the winner has been selected, then please feel free to submit your work!
We will check to see that you haven't submitted your entry on your dA page, and if you have, you will be disqualified. So please don't do it!!
Once submissions have closed, we will upload each submission without the artist's name. Only one vote per dA member, please!! To vote, just comment on the deviation you choose, and please include the words "I vote" in your comment, so that the admins know it's a vote and not a comment on the artist's work. In the event of a tie between two or more entries, we, the admins will put our two cents in to break the tie, otherwise we're staying out of it. Good luck!!
