Watership Down Contest
« on: October 02, 2016, 11:49:51 PM »
Greetings, dear members of Fiver's Honeycomb!

The Staff has taken your ideas into consideration, and we're pleased to announce a Watership Down Contest.

~~

GUIDELINES

- The theme for this contest is "a quality you admire". Think about something you admire. It can be a trait such as love or justice, a certain thing like nature or music, or even a person (like me. Just kidding :P). You may find it useful to include a short paragraph with your entry, explaining how it touches upon this theme.

- Each member may submit up to two entries.

- You are allowed to submit art that wasn't originally made for this contest, even if it's from a long time ago, as long it can be connected to the theme.

- The following are accepted: visual art (drawings, paintings, arts and crafts, photographs), fanfiction (stories, poems), and music that you have composed. If you would like to use a different medium, please ask in this thread. All work must be original, AKA, don't submit things that other people have created.

- Entries will be accepted until Saturday, October 22nd. Deadline extended to Saturday, October 29

Post your entries in this thread, along with questions and comments. Happy creating!

I believe the esteemed admins (and maybe us lowly Owsla too. ;) ) will be be figuring out their judging process from what is submitted. Until they know what's to be submitted, there really wasn't a good, fair way to decide on how to judge. That help? :)

Ah I've been awaiting this competition! :D I hope I can participate though since I've been so busy lately and I'm having trouble with our PC as well... But we'll see. I'll try my best. Looking forward to the entries!
