:: Mikoto - Mythology Contest ::

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 23, 2012, 1:13 PM

Greetings, everybody!

Edit: The contest is officially over. Submission to Contest folder will be closed from now. 
Thank you for your participation :meow: The judging will now proceed until 20 May. 

Considering we've been getting multiple requests for the deadline extension, it's been decided that the Mikoto Mythology Contest will last for an extra 7 days, i.e. until

27th April.

We hope this extension will help those who've been struggling to finish their entry because of unexpected complications = ) 
Thanks for your patience and participation :meow: :heart:



The time has come when I proudly commence this long awaited annual Mikoto Contest! Every Mikoto fan [including potential ones] are more than welcome to join!

::.. ::::thumb208656094:I miss mum by NariAmariI will hold you by wnaryareminiscences... by toravi::: ..::

 
:: THEME ::
:star: This year's theme for the Mikoto Contest is Mythology :star:
Siren by luciole+ Deity + by akirakiraiGreen Dragon by Elfessaflora by JDarnell

The idea was inspired by wonderful illustrations of mythical characters. Your task will be simple: Create a drawing of Mikoto Uchiha in a mythical theme. Let imagination be your guide. You may draw her as goddess Amaterasu from Japanese mythology, siren/ mermaid of the sea, Persephone or Flora [goddess of Spring] from Greek mythology, as a Chinese deity with the dragon and phoenix mates, but also as a chibi in a Easter bunny costume :la: :heart: Anything! You can even make her your own deity of an imaginary universe!


:: RULES ::

• The themes of the contest [Mikoto, Mythology] shall be respected.
• Entries are submitted to :iconmikotouchihafc:’s gallery, into the respective Category [General/ Beginner] of Mythology Contest folder 
[See the prizes section to find out about which Category you belong to]
 • No offensive message/ hate art/ art violating dA policy
• Maximal number of entries per person is 2, obviously only one will be considered for winning. 
• The work must be entirely done by you. 
• And most of all, have fun! :dummy: :heart:

TIPs:

• Be creative. The impact and originality is just as important [if not more] than drawing skill in this contest.
• Having an interesting concept for your drawing can make it stand out from the rest. 
• Since I’m a nitty-picky person, I will most probably sneak to your gallery as well to see how much effort has been put into the drawing. Entries that are exceptionally good compared to contestant’s gallery standard will receive extra credit.



 :: DEADLINE ::

 The deadline for the contest is 20th April.



:: PRIZES ::
A cookie to all generous, kindly people who donated to this prize pool! :iconarigatouplz: 
[If you would like to donate a prize just leave a comment here <3] 

[You're most welcome to join the contest even if you're a prize donor = ) ]

It will harder than last time, definitely!

How do you think we should judge it this time round? By points like last time? I think it was a pretty good system then, we should definitely keep it. For the viewer's choice place, we just need to make sure that the participants don't ask for their watchers to vote for them...:nod:

:iconkivi1230:
kivi1230 Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, I'm still considering this, about the judging system. Since this time we're going to have different prize Categories, there will need to be some modifications. I'd suggest this for the judge's choice prizes:

Every judge picks their top 7 entries and awards 7 points to 1st, 6 to 2nd and so on. All the scores are added and 6 entries with the highest score will proceed to round 2.
Every judge ranks all of the entries in order from their favourite to their least favourite and award points [again on the scale 1-6]accordingly, this time including a short comment on each entry as well. Points are then added together and the entry with highest score wins.

What do you think? IMO this is a more convenient method for contests with a large number of entries like ours. = ) I'll make a discussion thread on the judging system later on and contact other judges as well. :meow:

I want to enter this contest (I already finished the picture) and I'm debating which category I should enter. Many of the artists in the General Category are much more experienced then me, and I was wondering if I still could enter the Beginner's Category even though I've been on DA for two years.
