Interests
Calling all artists!

We'd like to announce a new and exciting project that our website, SuperWomenMania.com, is currently sponsoring. In an effort to try and provide new and original content to our site followers, we are conducting a themed art contest with CASH PRIZES to the top entries based on a vote from our users.

The art contest will be based on the theme of "I Wish I Was Kryptonian" in which the entries will portray a non-powered female character from comics or animation acquiring, demonstrating, or showing off powers akin to Superman (or Supergirl!). For example, Mary Jane Watson now exhibiting superstrength or Jasmine from Aladin stopping an army by blowing a sandstorm with her superbreath or Lois Lane shrugging off bullets with her newfound invulnerability. Basically, the sky's the limit with the creative options and characters you have available.

Pique your interest? Well, if the subject matter isn't fun enough already, we're throwing in CASH PRIZES (via Paypal) to the top three entries voted on by our users (via an online poll). The prizes will be as follows: 1st Place = $200, 2nd Place = $125, 3rd Place= $75.   Another intangible benefit to the artists will be promotion on our website which could easily result in followup works and commissions by our user community, many of which might already be customers of yours.


CONTEST RULES AND GUIDELINES
===============================
1) All entries must be submitted in digital form (jpg, gif, png) to contest@superwomenmania.com by the contest deadline at midnight EST, October 15th, 2014.
2) All work must be new and original. No re-circulating old works that might fit the profile of the contest, please.
3) For this contest, all submissions must be drawn, either by hand or digitally. No 3D modelling submissions or photoshopped images will be accepted.
4) Entries may be as simple as pinups or be an elaborate action panel. The more detailed display of power is probably gonna go over better though. No nudity or sexually graphic scenes are permitted.
5) Entries must feature a FEMALE comic or animation character discovering or displaying the powers of a Kryptonian (e.g. superspeed, invulnerability, heat vision, superstregth, flight, super-breath, etc). The character may already have powers (e.g. Zatanna, Black Canary) but should not have had any of the powers of Superman (e.g. She-Hulk). If you have any questions or need clarification, email me at larafan22@yahoo.com.
6) Entries may be in B&W or colored. Colored (well, good coloring), again, will probably be more popular in the voting.
7) Artists may collaborate and split the prize money if they choose (and if they win). For example, a penciler and a colorist might work together. Any prize money will be paid solely to the submitting artist however.
8) Members of SWM are permitted to "sponsor" an artist (via a commissioned piece) for the contest. Any prize money will be paid solely to the submitting artist however.
9) SWM requires that any submitted artwork not be posted on other sites (e.g. DeviantArt) until AFTER all entries are posted on the site (probably a few days following the Oct 15th deadline). Any submitted artwork discovered in the public domain prior to this will be ineligible for prize winnings.
10) Winners will be decided by a vote of SuperWomenMania's users via an online poll, with each registered user of the site getting one vote. Our site does not allow "robot" registrations so there is little liklihood of autmatically stuffing the ballot box.
11) In the event of a tie, the tying entries will have the option of splitting the combined prize monies (if BOTH artists agree) or having the webmaster break the tie.
12) All winning cash prizes will be paid via Paypal only to the submitting artist's account
13) Any questions/clarifications about the contest or what is allowed can be directed to larafan22@yahoo.com. Questions can also be submitted via YIM at "larafan22".
14) Artists may submit up to 3 entries if they wish
15) SWM reserves the right to disqualify any entry that it views as graphic or in poor taste. If you think there might be an issue, please ask first.



ABOUT SUPERWOMENMANIA.COM
=========================
Superwomenmania.com is the internet's premier 'Girl Power' portal! Simply put, that means that almost everything at SWM is dedicated to women and heroines, and even some villainesses, with power and strength far greater than mere mortals --basically, what we call supergirls or ubergirls!  Within our site, you'll find stories, artwork, news, links, and just about anything else we could find regarding this little fascination we have with supergirls. And we aren't alone! Which is why we host our forums which is dedicated to everything that is both super and female.  One final word about the theme of this site -- Girl Power! It's not Girl De-power! This isn't the place for "superheroines in peril" or anything hardcore, so if that is what you are looking for, you might wanna re-google!
