Over 1000:points: and Art!!!

After all this time of planning and waiting... IT'S FINALLY HERE!!! Our first Contest.

:new: 1 more month left for our contest and with only 4 entries so far and only 16 participants that i have counted, the contest doesn't look so good.
I personally think that we have great prizes and the theme is really great, i hope more people will join until the end of the contest.
It's not in the rules, and it's not a must, I really didn't want to make people do stuff for the contest, but... it would be nice if next time when you write a journal entry you mention our contest as well ^^. A big thank you in advance for those that will :hug:.

:new: edit We are 3 weeks away from the deadline :D, I have counted so far 19 people witch stated that will participate, and only 6 of them submitted an entry :).
Here is a list i've made with the "possible participants" ( the ones markes with " 3* " have already submitted an entry :). View List
To be honest i expected more people to participate :(, maybe next time we will have greater prizes witch will probably encourage more people to join.
Remember that we must have a minimum of 20 deviations otherwise we would cancel the contest. If you are a participant and you don't want your work to be in vain, you could help us spread the word :).

Contest starts July 1st
Contest ends August 31st

The contest will be canceled if we don't have at least 20 participants.

:bulletgreen:   Main color pallet must be red:bulletred:green:bulletgreen:yellow:bulletyellow:. One of the colors can be more present than the others as long as all 3 are the dominant ones. Also that doesn't mean you can't use other bits of the other colors as well, but if you can integrate yourself in only the 3 main colors even better.

:bulletred::bulletred::bulletorange::bulletorange::bulletyellow::bulletyellow::bulletgreen::bulletgreen: Judging :bulletgreen::bulletgreen::bulletyellow::bulletyellow::bulletorange::bulletorange::bulletred::bulletred:

1st Phase:

Our Judges will choose their favorite top 5 entries, which will then be sorted out by the number of votes and the first 10 will be displayed in a journal.
If we think there are some deviations that truly deserve a chance and didn't make it into the top we will put a pool voting as well.

Also in this phase the judges will have to give a small comment on the first 3 entries they choose, why do they think they deserve to win, some of these messages will be displayed to let people know why they where chosen.

2nd Phase:

Bliood-Kira Twin-Trinkets will choose the top 3 winners.

The Judges:
:iconbliood-kira: :iconmetal-quill: :iconsmoothhipster: :iconwindklang:
:icontwin-trinkets: :iconbuenodavista: :iconangevere:
We are still looking for judges, if you are interested. Please let us know by leaving a comment or sending a note to our group.

Why is the judging so elaborated?
We want it to be as fair as possible because everyone deserves a chance.

A big thank you to all the groups helping us with the contest.
