"Love Like Sugar" Contest - CLOSED!

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 23, 2012, 3:42 PM



The contest has now ended, and voting will begin tomorrow, March 23rd.
:eager: Thanks so much to all who entered! I am really excited to start voting! :eager:

:spotlight-left:  ~ Voting ~  :spotlight-right:


:bulletpurple: The group will be putting up polls for each category, so our members can vote for the winners! Each poll will last a week, so that members have plenty of time to vote. Some of our categories have too many entries for polls. In this case, we will put up a journal and ask members to post their choices in the comments. The journals will contain more specific instructions.

:bulletpurple: I have taken the liberty of moving some of the entries into different categories to give the entrants better chances of winning. I apologize if this offends anyone, but I felt it was best for all involved.

:bulletpurple: Each participant was allowed 2 entries. I will be looking through each and every entry, so if I find more than 2 by any member, all entries will be disqualifed without warning. Entries that don't follow the rules will be, as well.

:bulletpurple: Participants can only place once. In a case where someone's entries place twice (even in different categories), the lower placing entry will be voided.

:trophy: ~ Prizes ~ :trophy:

I am afraid I've had to reduce the prize amounts, since we were not able to get all the points from the former founder's account. I apologize, but there is nothing I can do to change it.

:bulletpurple: There are 10 categories :bulletpurple:
~Cartoon, Anime, & Manga
~People
~Artisian Crafts & Models
~Digital Art
~Fan Art
~Photography
~Literature
~Mature Content
~Traditional Art
~Tattoo

:bulletpurple: Each category will have 7 winners (unless there were not enough entries) :bulletpurple:

~ Grand Prize = 550 :points: + Interview by JeffrettaLyn for the ALRS Monthly Gallery Mag. Feature + Feature (winning artwork plus 2 others) from surrealistic-gloom
~ 1st Place = 275 :points: + 10 :+fav: from surrealistic-gloom
~ 2nd Place = 140 :points: + 10 :+fav: from surrealistic-gloom
~ 3rd Place = 70 :points: + 10 :+fav: from surrealistic-gloom
~ 3 Honorable Mentions = 35 :points: each
~ 2 llama badges for each place -- ShillMynara, JeffrettaLyn
~ A DeviantWatch for each place -- JeffrettaLyn
~ All placing entries will be feautured in the ALRS Mag.

:winner: We are also asking for participants and members to donate any prizes they can. These can be Llamas, features, free art requests, Faves, Watches, Critiques, anything.

Thank you once again to all who entered and to all who will help with the voting and donating prizes. If you have any questions about the voting, prizes, danating, or anything really, comment below or note an Administrator.

Thanks for reading!

3. You must submit your art to the right folders or else it will not be accepted. We know you can handle this on your own, it is simple and will only take a few seconds and this gives us more time to manage the group and contest more efficiently. Folders for the contest will be labeled with “Contest” in front of the category such as “Contest Cosplay” or “Contest Photography” and so on.

4. The submission limit is two submissions per person. All other submissions will be denied so choose wisely!

I may offer 10 faves for the winners and runners-up + 30 points each to the three winners + a small feature on my profile page (the winning work plus two more pictures) of the winners and runners-up for at least one week - maybe more.
On the condition that you send me a reminder when the winners will be known, I might forget it.
Good luck to all participants! :aww:

Thank you so much, this is wonderful! :squee:

I'm going to break it down before posting:

~ 10 faves to each of the 7 placers in each category

~ 30 points each to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, or Grand, 1st, and 2nd?

~ A feature (winning work + 2 other works) for all 7 placers in each category, that runs for at least a week.

You are not obligated to anything at this point, so let me know if I got somethng wrong. I'll be posting a journal with all the winners and their prizes after the voting is all completed. It will be up to the voters to contact the prizegivers.

You are talking of "each category", will there be winners in many categories?

I was thinking or the overall winners, i.e. three winners and overall runners-up.
Otherwise, it would be so huge! I am getting scared... :D
Reply
:iconjeffrettalyn:
JeffrettaLyn Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
There is no reason to be scared, haha! :hug: You are not committed to a single thing.

We are having a Grand, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 3 runner-ups in 10 categories. There won't be any overall winners, just in each category. :)

:iconsurrealistic-gloom:
surrealistic-gloom Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2012
Omg, 10 categories?
I was meaning to give those prizes to the overall winners...
I will give the prizes to the Photography category, is it alright?
But I can give 10 faves to the three winners of each category, which means to 30 persons... (300 faves, omg! :D) Or 5 faves to the winners and runners-up of each category which would be 300 faves either. As you like!
Is it alright with you and clear enough? :hug:

:iconjeffrettalyn:
JeffrettaLyn Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, I know, this prize system is huge! :D

Everything is all clear, but here's how I recommend, to keep things fair:

10 faves each for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in all 10 categories.

I think that's a wonderful donation. How about you?

It is all good for all the faves! :nod:

Plus the prizes I mentioned earlier for the Photography category: small feature, points... (I don't give llamas, I don,t want to get any of them back! :D)

I hope they will like the faves, usually almost nobody thank for points and feature when I give them in a contest.

Excellent, I shall add you to our prize list. :)

I appreciate very much you offerong prizes to the Photography winners, but I'm afraid entrants would consider it unfair. However, I can put you down for featuring the Grand Prize winners (there will be 10 of them). Would you like that? :)

You are kidding! I am always so excited when I get points for anything, and especially contest prizes! :D I do hope you will get lots of thanks! :)

If I could fix my PC, I might offer for an art as prize, but Im still not able to fix my PC till now (it still has to be run under safe mode to make it work). Besides, I'm not sure if the winner would love my drawing style, so I think offering my art as prize wouldn't be a good idea either :ashamed:
