Summer Contest - CLOSED! (PLEASE READ)

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 1, 2012, 3:30 PM



UPDATE 9/2/12 - The contest is now closed! If your entry was denied because it wasn't submitted correctly, you have until voting starts to get it in.

I have listed all the entries that have been accepted to the group. If your entry is not there, please comment or note the founder!

I am so excited about how well the contest gone so far. Over 100 entries! :wow: I had not originally figured we'd have so many when I put together the voting system, so I'll be tweaking it a bit.

Voting starts tomorrow, Sept. 3, EDT. I will be splitting the entries into 3 sections. These entries will be submitted as three separate journals that will be up for voting for about 2 weeks. (The journals will be submitted one after the other, not at the same time.) The top 4 entries from each journal (12 altogether) will go into a fourth and final journal, where the winners will be voted on and determined.

Voting rules, as well as a recap of what I just explained, will be included with each journal. Good luck, everyone!


UPDATE 9/1/12 - Alright everyone, the contest is ending at midnight tonight, EDT! Be sure to get your entries in on time, and please remember to follow all of the submission guidelines. I'd hate for you to miss the deadline because you have to re-enter your work. :(

I did not have time to update the entries, but if your work has been accepted into the contest folder, it will be added here later. :) I will be updating this throughout the day. :)


UPDATE 8/28/12 - Make sure to keep an eye on the timer on the group's front page, and get those entries in on time! :D

And do not worry if your entry doesn't show up in this journal, or even get accepted to the contest folder, right away. It takes a little bit to go through the submissions, but I can tell when you submitted your entry, so your will not be unfairly disqualified. The new entries are marked. :D


UPDATE 8/22/12 - Alright, folks, this contest is winding down, so make sure to get your entries in on time. :aww:
60+ entries! :wow: Thanks so much guys, that's incredible! :la: The new entries are marked. :)


UPDATE 8/6/12 - We have one month (less a few days ;P) until the end of our contest! Andddddd....

(drum roll, please)
:iconcheerplz: PRIZES HAVE BEEN INCREASED! :iconcheerplz:

Thank you to everyone who has donated on our mascot Evie's (Donate-AllArt-R-US) profile! :heart: Check below to see the new amounts. :aww: Also, anyone who wants to donate prizes of any kind, please leave a comment or note the Founder. :)

:new: The new entries have been marked, so I hope you'll take a peek at them. Also, if you are entering the contest, please remember to add a link to AllArt-R-US and a link to this journal in your art description. I feel terrible having to deny any lovely entries! :cries:


UPDATE 7/4/12 - The new entries are marked. :D Happy Independence Day!!!!!


UPDATE 6/25/12 - We have had so many beautiful entries into the contest so far! I am so excited with how it's going, and hope you'll take a moment to look through the entries. I'll be updating it as we get more entries.

:sun: Summer Dream Getaway :sun:


All of us have someplace we dream of going when school's out, and there's nothing to do around home. What exactly is that place like? A tropical beach with fun in the sun? A high mountain resort, to beat the heat? Or maybe it's someplace in your hometown, your backyard even. Or maybe you'd like to join your favorite fan characters in their homeworlds! :D

Here is your chance to show us! What is your summer dream getaway like?


:reading: Info and Rules :reading:


:bulletpurple: All mediums are allowed. I would love to read about your favorite getaway, or see it acted out in Cosplay. No matter where your talent lies, you belong in this contest. :D

:bulletpurple: Your entries should be newly created for this contest (made after June 1st, 2012), but can be submitted to other contests, as well.  

:bulletpurple: There is one exception to the above rule. Due to seasonal differences around the world, older entries will only be accepted for Photography. However, these entries can not have been submitted to other contests.

:bulletpurple: You are allowed 2 entries, but only one can place.

:bulletpurple: You must be a member of AllArt-R-US to participate.

:bulletpurple: Members of the AllArt-R-US staff can enter and have equall chances of winning.

:bulletpurple: Prize donators can enter and have equal chances of winning.

:bulletpurple: When submitting your work to DeviantART, please post a link to AllArt-R-US and this journal in your description. This way, the Admin. will know that your piece was created for the contest, and others may be interested to join as well. :)

:bulletpurple: Entries should be submitted to the Summer Dream Getaway Contest folder.


:phew: Deadline :phew:


All entries are due by September 1st at 11:59 p.m. EST. I'll be setting a timer on the front page, so keep an eye on it. :)

I figured that running the contest for 3 months would give students plenty of time to enter. There will be no extensions.


:writersblock: Voting :writersblock:


Voting will take place on September 2, and will be done by Popular Vote. I will be putting up a voting journal with the contest entries as links, not thumbnails (this keeps things fair). Voting rules will be in the journal.


:winner: Prizes :winner:


Would you like to help by donating prizes? We would love for you to do so! :heart: Comment on this journal or send the group a note if you are interested. :)
