Skin contests will be held once or twice a month. Most will be themed based on the month, however if you have any contest ideas you can submit them to staff.
You will normally have at least two weeks to make submissions once the contest is announced, and afterwards the winners will be decided via a vote from all members. The top three entries will be awarded medals worth some points towards artist ranks.
You will only be able to submit skins that you have not posted on other threads. If you are voted as one of the top three entries, you must submit the textures to your skin if you want to be named a winner. If you are one of the three winners, you cannot repost these skins to double dip for points. Instead the skins & their textures will be posted in the contest section, where they will likely get more publicity.
Voter fraud will be taken seriously. Do not create false accounts to inflate votes, as those will be thrown out.
