Submissions of non-photo artwork and media.
1. GENERAL RULES
For the general rules see Elftown Creature Marathon#RULES
Copied art is NOT permissible in Elftown's Official Contests. Please see: Copying vs Fanart & Referencing.
2. EACH MEMBER MAY SUBMIT ONE (1) ENTRY
Exceptions might be offered if there is a valid reason for it. But, if you do submit more than one image, you will greatly lower your chance of winning, as the votes for your style will be spread out on two entries.
3. ALL IMAGES MUST BE UPLOADED TO ELFTOWN!
To upload your image full-size you can use the feature 'Upload a folder of images' that is shown on your house.
This feature allows you to upload one, multiple images or zip-files in their original size to a wikipage.
Once you click this link you can follow the instructions. See also uploading images
Any entry that does not follow the "Nymph theme", will be removed.
If you feel any of the entries break the rules, please speak up before the entries make it to the polls
. You can still speak up even after the contest is closed, as long as the polls have not yet gone up yet. Complaints received after
the aforementioned will not be considered valid.
All mediums, excepting photography (and/or manipulations) and animations will be accepted.
REMEMBER THE GOAL:
We want the BEST QUALITY images to represent Elftown having the best Nymph
Page on the Internet as part of the Elftown Creature Marathon
When the finalists are posted in the Main Street Poll or on a public poll page, the participants are not allowed to beg for votes for their own entry
. Do not ask people to vote for your entry via private messages, guestbook messages, moods, wikis, or by any other means. Your entry will be disqualified if you are caught doing so. It is perfectly fine to advertise THE POLL, however.
Nymphs are female personifications of nature. They are usually depicted as young, beautiful women but can also be disguised as part of the natural phenomenon they rule over (e.g. a dryad may look like a tree). They are usually bound to the area in which their tree/pond/spring etc. is and often are tied to its fate - a dryad will die if her tree is cut down, etc.
Nymphs come in various forms, representing trees, oceans, and ponds, etc. Dryads, Hamadryads, Naiads, Nereids and Oceanids are all types of nymph and all are acceptable in this contest (though it might be useful to note with your drawing which type you have drawn).

Aside from the regular rewards, as mentioned on Elftown Creature Marathon, the winner will receive credit for contributing to what we hope will be the best Nymph-page on the entire Internet.
