    I have had this idea for a while, mainly to add more excitement to this section.

    Basically as the thread title says this is going to be a Fan Art contest
    The prizes are as follows
    First Place – 5000 Community Points
    Second Place – 2000 Points
    Third Place – 1000 Points
    If there are a good few entries then everyone else will get 500 points.

    General Fan Art Contest Rules and Info

    -Each Contest will have a theme to it, so every piece of art submitted must follow that theme in some way so that it is easier for all pieces to be voted on later. Themes include: Certain Characters, settings, and so one. Example – Zuko’s happiest Moment, Avatar State Korra, Toph meets Bolin etc.
    -Contestants can submit up to 2 pieces of art, this is to allow various approaches to the theme of that contest.
    -All art must be original (done by) the artist submitting it.
    -Every trivia will have a deadline for art submissions(usually about 3-4 weeks), any submitted after that will not be eligible to vote for.
    -For every contest, at the end when the results are in, a news post will go up featuring all submitted pieces of art to showcase it to a wider audience.
    -Any member of the forum can vote for these contests, except those who are participating in the current contest. Voting will last a specific amount of time (5-7 days) and votes after that time won’t be counted.
    -Please do not post any art that could be deemed inappropriate, this includes excess nudity, violence and art made only for shock factor. The aim is to showcase amazing Avatar Art, not push the boundaries of appropriateness.
    -On occasion special edition contests may come up which may have better prizes. So look out for those.

    Feel free to ask any questions about this.

    @airspeed Wow, I was literally considering posting a fan art contest yesterday, but didn’t have time to :( I think it’s a great idea Airspeed! I can’t wait to see everyone’s submissions :D

    Never knew I could get so excited about actually drawing things myself.

    Well, 1 month is enough to learn how to draw right? ;)

    Now, to buy some pens…

    I can’t draw either, lol!

    But hey, there’s no harm in trying. ;)
    Well, apart from the fact that you might be blinded by the horrendous drawing.
    But I still think you should give it a go, it’ll be fun! :D

    @airspeed A thought just occurred to me when I read AwesomeBender’s post, what do you think about a small reward, like 500 points, for participation?
    But it can’t be like just a stick figure, there has to be some effort put into it (this factor could be up to the judges to decide).

    It’ll probably incite more interest, and resulting in more submissions. :)

    I was going to keep a secret until the contest was over, but yes everyone will get some points for participating and 2nd and 3rd place will get some fairly decent points.
    That and every submission will be in the news post that will go up once the winner is chosen.

    And yes, please do put in some effort, the aim is to have a really high quality image as this groups Avatar, to show that this site has some awesome fan artists.

    I like it! I’ll give it a try ;) it’s a shame that summer is over, so I’ll have less time to draw it, but I’ll find some ;) And can I ask you, do we have to draw with pencils or computer?

    @grettullka
    Whichever you want,

    Just make sure that when you upload the image of it that it is clear and not a poorly taken bad quality photo of a piece of paper.

    Scanned in or a computer drawn image would probably make for the best quality.

    Lol, it can be that bad… :)

    Wow, this is a great idea!But I am one of those drawers how have to look at something in order to draw it , and I try to draw it actually how it looks.Is this considered a no?

    No matter how cold and distant people may become, on the inside something warm and precious always remains, something that never changes. To me, that’s what family is like.

    @jade
    The aim is for it to be fan art, not fan copy. So I would recommend using official art as reference to try and draw something unique.
