Hello everyone!!! With the exception of the Sig Contests and Seasonal Sig Contest, we will be changing the Art Contests here at MH. Our goal behind doing this is rather simple... to make the Art Contests the best that they can be! That includes the type of contests you want to see, the frequency of those contests, and prizes awarded to the winner.
*Once again, please note that the Sig Contests and Seasonal Sig Contest will be left unchanged*
The Seasonal Art Contests are sometimes hit or miss: we either have a terrific competition with lots of participation or we struggle to get enough participation so there can be a vote. One of the reasons behind this is probably due to the duration in which the contests last. Having the submission phase last 3 months is just too long. But at the same time, having it too short isn't possible because creating a piece to submit just isn't something that can be done in 20 minutes.
So with that in mind, starting in August, we will be switching to a monthly contest. The types of contest is still up for debate ( more on this in a minute ), but the structure is going to be more similar to the sig contests i.e every Season ( 3 months ), the winning submissions will face off in a Seasonal Contests and the grand winner will receive the art badge we have been giving out. If anyone has any other ideas for prizes, feel free to let us know.
Now for the tricky part.... what kind of contests do you guys want?Do you want some combination of the ones we currently have or something entirely new?
One new contest that might be sort of neat to do would be to have a coloring contest where everyone colors the same lineart. Does that sound like something that you all are interested in doing?
Thoughts, ideas, and / or suggestions will be very much appreciated.
