~~Family Fun Contest~~
It's time for our third contest. Our previous contests have been remarkably successful, and we have no doubt that this one has the potential to be our biggest yet thanks to the increasing size of our community. Our latest contest is called Family Fun and, as is apparent from that title, will focus on the significance of family. We're not offering money as prizes, but, as was the case with our last contest, we will be offering a full year of Premium Membership as the top prize. Interested? Read on.
Family plays an important role in a lot of people's lives. Different people have varying notions about what constitutes as a family, although for the sake of simplicity we'll be taking it as meaning a blood connection between relatives. We want you guys to explore the theme of Family in this contest. That means you could draw a mane 6 character with their in-show family, or design a family for characters who don't have a discernible family within the show. Alternatively, you could draw your OCs and their families. Preferably these families would be engaging in some sort of family activity within the image. However, that's not all:
Your image must include, in some way, shape or form, the little black pony silhouette from our group icon (it doesn't need to be an exact rip of the image as long as it resembles the pony):
That black silhouette must be in the image to some extent, although how you use it is up to you! All sorts of ideas could work: you're free to go fairly 'out-there' with this contest. As long as the entry has the silhouette in the image in some fashion and follows the theme of Family then your entry will be counted. The reason we require the silhouette to be included is to prove that images have been made exclusively with this contest in mind in an effort to deter opportunists who may randomly stumble upon the contest and submit an old deviation with the same kind of themes. Including the silhouette ensures that deviations are made specifically for this contest. Having that as part of the criteria will keep things fair – only those who have put effort into the contest will be in with a chance of winning, rather than people simply seizing on an opportunity.
You are allowed to include:
• Characters from the show (Celestia; Fluttershy etc.)
• Original Characters
• Equestria Girls if the style of the film is followed (for example: skin tones from the film must be used)
• 1st prize = 12 months premium membership or the 2,396 DeviantArt point equivalent + pony print signed by Andrea Libman, the voice of Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy i136.photobucket.com/albums/q1… (thanks to SAB3600!)
• 2nd prize = 6 months premium membership or the 1,272 DeviantArt point equivalent (thanks to SAB3600!)
• 3rd prize = 3 month premium membership or the 636 DeviantArt point equivalent (thanks to SAB3600!)
(Winners are free to request prizes be given to a friend if they so choose)
The deadline for contest submissions is July 8th 2013, giving you just over one month to enter! Deviations will then be chosen and the poll will be put up!
Best of luck to everyone who takes part! Tell your friends, and let's make our third contest into a massive success, just like the first and second! Again, many thanks to SAB3600 - it's because of him that we're going ahead with another contest! Thanks so much!
