"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
~Artisian Crafts & Models
~Digital Art
~Fan Art
~Mature Content
~Traditional Art

: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!

There are still rules that apply to this contest, so make sure to read them over carefully.

1. All the regular group rules still apply; this meaning that if you do not respect the art, members/participants, you will be disqualified. Keep your manners in check.

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!

Oh, my I'm sorry I did not reply sooner! These comments do not come to my inbox, so it's easy to miss them. :(

I really appreciate your generous offer, and think it's a wonderful idea! We're still giving out the interview prizes, so I doubt it's too late to gove your constructive comments, if you're still interested. :)
totalrandomusername Featured By Owner May 19, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's not a problem :)

But wait, do you mean I can still give the comments or it's too late? :?
JeffrettaLyn Featured By Owner May 19, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
You can still give the comments if you'd like to. :)

JeffrettaLyn Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Aw, I'm sorry. :( Rest assured we will be doing more, though. Not ooften with such big prizes, but it will still be fun. :)

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
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. :)
