Holiday Fan Art Competition 2019

Banner by Chelle (shinebrighterxx)

FanForum Holiday Board Art Competition
Get into the holiday spirit! Work together, and show us what your board can do!
Create a holiday themed piece of artwork on the topic of the board to submit to the competition.

Anyone can participate! Whether it be creating a fan art or supporting your fellow board members. Visit any of the participating boards and post your submissions. If you are browsing FF and notice that someone's fanart is good and you like their style, I encourage you to send them a PM! Ask them if they know about the holiday competition Together, we can make this a really fun and a successful holiday competition!

Please read all of the rules before submitting an art.

  • Each participating board will have a thread dedicated to the competition and it will be the place to discuss and post your arts. It's also a great place for suggestions. Each thread is linked above here in this post.
  • The art must be holiday themed and have the board name clear anywhere on the artwork. You are free to use any technique (brushes, textures etc...). For help and tutorials, the Fan Art board is a great place to find it.
  • The artwork you submit must be exactly one of the following 3 sizes in pixels and in JPEG or PNG format; 400x300, 800x600, or 1024x768.
  • Art should include your username on the bottom left of all artwork in Verdana, font size 12 (72 pixels per inch).
  • You will have to include a separate 200x150px thumbnail in JPEG or PNG format along with your art to be used in the voting. Please do not add a border to the thumbnail.
  • Final submissions should be a separate post in the thread marked with the words "to submit it for the competition" in red. This way, we will know that it is the final version of the art you would like to submit. It will be linked on the beginning post of the thread, updated frequently. If you do not see your art on that post a few days after you post it, please PM vale decem. The moderators of every board are responsible to add the arts to the OP by the deadline. Any art that hasn't been added in by 24 hours after the deadline won't be included in the polls.
  • The deadline for art submission is December 21st, 2019 6pm EST. You must have your artwork posted by that time to be considered. No exceptions. Please make sure that your upload site is reliable.
  • You may submit no more than 1 art per board. You may most certainly make more than one for each board and post it on the thread for people to see, however you may only submit one for the competition per board. There is no limit to how many boards you can submit an art for.
  • Special notes:

    For TV, Celebrities and Music, you may only submit an art on a topic that does not include one in which there is a separate board participating. For example (hypothetical):

    - If you make a One Direction art you would submit it to the One Direction board and not the thread for Music on Fan Art if One Direction is participating in the competition.
    - If you make a Kate Voegele art, the proper place to submit it would be the Music board on the Fan Art board because even though she has a board here at , it is not on the list of participating boards. (again hypothetical)

    With regards to Couples submissions, you may not submit an art with a movie or TV couple that is from one of the shows participating in the competition unless it features a variety of couples from different boards. For example (hypothetical):

    - If you make a Luke and Lorelai art, it must be submitted to the Gilmore Girls board if it is participating.
    - If you make a Rose and The Doctor art, it must be submitted to the Doctor Who board if it is participating.
    - If you make a Luke and Lorelai art that also includes Rose and The Doctor, you should submit that to the Couples board.
  • Please make sure to keep your artwork PG-13 and stick to the Forum rules.
The voting will be as follows:

1. Favorite for each participating board: This will take place within a few days after the submission deadline in the form of polls, topped in each participating board. If you want to vote for a particular board, please visit that board and vote. The winners will be announced the next day.

2. Favorite Overall per Category: This will be held on the Fan Art board starting after the first round winners are revealed and will be open for voting. Everyone is encouraged to vote. Winner of the overall competition will be announced very soon after.

3. Favorite Among the GT: The Graphics Team will vote on a set of categories. We will hand pick what we feel best fit the categories. In case you are wondering, here are the categories:

Best use of text
Most Festive
Best composition
Best use of textures/brushes
Most Creative
Best Use Of Color
Best Use of Black and White

The Graphics Team will also make the final winners and special category Graphics.

This competition is made possible by members of the Graphics Team, Administrators and the Info Center board Moderators. More importantly, the participants! We hope that you have a fun and safe holiday season!

What determines if a board is part of the competition?

The board needs to sign up on a thread on the mod board . We compile a list of all those boards & will update this thread with that list. Until then if you wish to find signed up boards follow the 'holiday fan art competition's tag

We don't have an official list of boards who can't sign up but usually boards like Info Center, Requests, & Fan Art don't as the topic for their board doesn't really give you a theme to create the graphic for. All general fan arts with no set theme go to the Off Topic board & then we recommend that all general boards sign up so people can create art for topics which don't have a board on (or for topics where the board hasn't signed up)

Was there a particular board you wanted to make art for? If the board hasn't signed up you can always ask the mod(s) of that board if they're going to sign up
its good to see you its a miracle to see you
→ whatever you think of us, we still think of you as family... come home
