The Rules!


Images must be created by Elftowners and posted here by the original artist.
Which means, no matter how much you might like a particular image on somebody's house, you are not allowed to add it here. This includes random images from the net too. MAKE YOUR OWN DARN IMAGES, DON'T STEAL THEM AND TRY TO CLAIM THEM AS YOUR OWN! That makes us angry, very angry indeed.

Please put forth your best effort and the best quality, i.e.
- no drawings on lined notebook paper
- no bad scannings of your drawings
- no photographs or photomanips
- Old pieces of art are allowed in this contest, providing they have not already been submitted to another official Elftown Contest. If your art has been submitted in an unofficial contest, then you are still free to enter it here.
- drawings must be well shaded and/or coloured. They also have to have some kind of background even if that's only opaque colour. Sketches will not be accepted.



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.

6. SUBJECT MATTER: Since the winners will be featured on Mainstreet, images that depict graphic violence, pornography or other disturbing actions will not be accepted. Only images that fit the theme will be allowed.

7. Please Note: Asking people to vote for you is against the rules. Although you may advertise the Main Street Poll in your mood, diary, or house, it is against Elftown Official Competition rules to directly ask people to vote for you or influence people to vote for you through use of public wikis, diary entries, messages, in your mood, etc.


Theme and deadline

What will we be expecting?
There's not a strict theme on this contest but the images have to be dark/creepy and maybe even cute while creepy. Nothing too garrish or gory, just good old dark twisted/surreal art.


This contest is closed!

We will be picking 1-2 images as the winners depending on the amount of entries.

If there are 15+ entries, then ten images will be picked out by the Council and the Assembly among all those presented and a poll will tell the winner. If there are less then they will all go to the poll.
Participants will receive an artist badge, and winners will receive a coloured version of the same (or a green/coloured Masters of Building badge if they are committed art donors).

2009-01-11 [Morphea]: oh I am soooo joining this one :)

2009-01-11 [Triola]: Since this has been announced on the Main Street, how about making the entries page accessible? :P

2009-01-11 [Jitter]: <img:stuff/mood5-gif.gif>

2009-01-11 [Jitter]: Gah I always forget that >.< Thanks Trio. Fixed!

2009-01-11 [arthemis_]: OOOEEEHHH I am sooo in this :D :D

2009-01-11 [Jitter]: bwii! ^^ Get those entries rolling

2009-01-12 [Linderel]: I thought the poll limit was 20+ :o

2009-01-12 [Jitter]: It was... When we had to make a second page for entries :(

2009-01-12 [Jitter]: My point is that if we get 21 entries per say and 20 go to the poll we get a very unhappy individual. 15 is much more reasonable for the amount of entries we get now.

I can't remember when this was decided. If you want check the forum :P

2009-01-12 [SilverFire]: I thought the same as Linderel, and also that it was a guidline and not a rule. If we had 21 images, then they'd all go to poll, too.

2009-01-12 [Jitter]: Hmm I didn't say it's a rule :) (did I?, I'm brainfarted nowadays) Oh well, we usually see when the contest ends anyway :)

2009-01-12 [SilverFire]: I... didn't say you DID say it was a rule, but with how strictly your example implies we'd follow it, it would be a rule. :P I was just pointing out that your example situation wouldn't happen, because we'd still put all 21 entries to poll.

2009-01-12 [Jitter]: Ah :p

2009-01-12 [SilverFire]: That was supposed to be 'how strictly', not 'you strictly' <.< *changes it*.

2009-01-13 [Skydancer]: Hmm.pokes through the dusty, web filled library... :) Cask, cask, now where is that cask...

2009-01-13 [Linderel]: ...of Amantillado? :o

2009-01-13 [Triola]: Amontillado, dear ;) *cannot ignore a chance to nitpick ze Lami* >.> :P

2009-01-13 [Skydancer]: of ancient Armagnac, dusty and deep with liquid terror. :)
