~ Arawaka Appreciation Fan Art Contest! ~
Hello board members! July has been designated Arakawa Appreciation Month here at the FMA board! So to kick things off, our FMA Image Gallery section of our board (affectionally known as the Gallery by many users) and FMA Fanart forum are jointly hosting FullMetal Fan Art Contest during the month of July! The winners will be announced sometime after the closing of the contest by the end of the month.
1. General "Arakawa Appreciation Month" Fanart Contest category
Rules and Guidelines
1. Fan art must be from any FullMetal Alchemist series, whether it be from FMA manga, FMA:Brotherhood anme or FMA1 anme
2. NO SPOILERS! I cannot stress enough the fact that we cannot have spoilers posted onto the site while the anime is still going as well as the ending of the manga at hand. If you have questions as to whether your art is considered a spoiler, please ask Chiyo by PM, and we can tell you its a spoiler image or not.
3. Art can be of your own style or that of Arakawa!
4. The medium used is your choice, whether it be Black & White or colored, hand drawn or digitally created, etc., but MUST be your own creation.
5. Please submit your entry by: *Also see the entry reminder here (Tombow's Reminder post below)
1.) posting your piece on this thread. Please do NOT use the the link to your art page on art account site such as DeviantArt. You MUST post ACTUAL art file of your entering fanart.
2.) then also upload your artwork to July 2010 Arakawa Appreciation Fanart Contest section of our FMA Image Gallery.
* If you have not submitted your Fanart to our Gallery before, here is How to submit images to the Gallery, and if you are still not comfortable with this or have any questions, please ask Chiyo by PM, and we'll be happy to assist you!
6. Once art pieces have been posted on this thread, they will be updated on the first post of the thread so that people can see all the entries without having to go through ALL of the pages... The pieces will be in link form using the name of the member who has created the piece.
Your uploaded fanart to the Gallery will not show up immediately, but they will be displayed when the next time Gallery moderator comes around.
7. You can make as many entries as you wish, but each entry must be submitted separately, and also number of entries made by one member will not influence the judging for the winners.
After the closing of the contest, we we will conduct a brief poll (votes will be open to all members) to narrow down the field, then the board will choose winners among those.
Winners' artworks will be displayed in the Gallery and on "July 2010 Hiromu Arakawa Appreciation Month Fanart Contest Album" (to be compiled and displayed later on this thread) and they will be featured in our Board Announcement & News forum.
2. Special "Thank-you, Hiromu Arakawa!" category
Additionally, we have special "surprise prizes" for the entries in the following Special category.
