Regarding on contest outlined here: larafan.deviantart.com/journal…
. I have gotten various emails with some good questions so decided to list some here, along with some other points of clarification:What size should my entry be?
All entries should be at least A4/letter in size at a resolution no smaller than 300 dpi. There is a good chance we'll scale them down for presentation purposes but will link to the full-sized original.Do I Need to include a writeup with my entry?
It is not required by the submitting artist, but short 1-3 sentence write-ups are welcome and encouraged. If you do NOT submit a writeup (again, not required), we will think up one for the picture. The following is a sample writeup for the Invincible Beauty example (larafan.deviantart.com/art/Rev…
): "In this Elseworld Fairy Tale, the good fairy Merriweather manages cast a very special spell on the spindle of the spinning wheel. When the young princess pricks her finger as prophesized by Maleficent, she does not die or fall sleep, but instead finds herself imbued with the strength and power of 1000 men thus becoming Invincible Beauty!" '"How strict to the entries have to be with Kryptonian?
The powers and scenes depicted should showcase the POWERS of a Kryptonian (e.g. superstrength, invulnerability, etc), but the image does not have to involve a 'big red S' or even acknowledge Superman or Supergirl. The word Kryptonian was used to just generalize the power set. Again, check the sample images that are included in the original contest post: larafan.deviantart.com/journal…How many entries are we allowed?
Each submitting artist is allowed up to three (3) entries.Can I win more than one prize if I submit multiple pics?
I like your confidence! Sure, if you think you're good enough to pull off the trifecta, go for it!Will my name be listed?
Yes, your name and webpage/link/email will be affixed to your posted entry unless you specifically say you do not want it to be there.How does voting work?
Voting will be open to registered members of our website, Superwomenmania.com, only. This will help prevent any "popularity contests" or "robot voters" which sometimes taint these contests. We also will NOT be posting the current votes until AFTER voting concludes. This is also being done intentionally to prevent 'tampering' of vote totals.
Voters will vote for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd from all the entries. Pts will be awarded as 3 points for first, 2 points for second, and 1 point for third. The TOTAL number of points received will determine the final standings which will be posted on or around Oct 31st, 2014. Where do I send my art?
Submissions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. We recently have been having mail server issues with the account that we hope to resolve soon, but if you get bouncebacks or want to make sure we received it, you can also send a copy to email@example.com. I will try and send an "email receipt" saying I've received your pic, so if you do not get one, please let me know!
What if I don't have Paypal?
Right now, Paypal is the required method of payment for the prizes. I cannot guarantee I can fulfill other methods of payment, but if you contact me ahead of time, we MIGHT be able to come to another arrangement.What is the "Sponsored" entry and how does that work?
The concept of the sponsored entry was conceived for the members of the website that might have a cool idea in mind but can't draw for shit! In this scenario -- at least in my head -- the 'sponsor' would commission a piece of artwork (and pay for it) with the clear notion and agreement of entering it into the contest "together". The commissioner and artist would agree to some kind of arrangement (50-50, 60-40, 90-10) on how they would split the profits should the piece win. That agreement, is solely between the artist and the commissioner! The part in the rules where I say pay outs will be made only to the artist
merely was a 'safety clause' because I wanted to make sure the artist got paid and did not get screwed over. Also, it protects against random people stealing art and saying they commissioned it. I hope that clears things up a little bit if I was vague before.How will my entry be used / licensed?
Your entry will be used SOLELY for posting on the site (and probably later on DA). Superwomenmania.com is a completely non-profit, fan site that has no fees, no advertising, and we don't sell anything so there will be NO profit made from the contest entries. The "ownership" of the art will remain with the artist if he/she wishes to make prints, etc.
