Donations


If you would like to help make the contest even better and would like to donate additional points for the winners, then please follow the link to the point donation pool located here: Blackout-Comix

The donation pool is located on the top of the page.

I am hosting the pool because Deviantart does not allow groups to have a donation pool on their page.

Thanks to some generous donations, we now have enough points to make this contest free for anyone to enter!


If there is anyone who would like to add prizes to this contest, please contact Blackout-Comix with the details of what you would like to include. Additional prizes such as free commissions, prints, etc. would be gladly accepted as prizes for the winners. Any prizes donated can go towards the prize tier of the donator's choosing. For example, if you have a print that you would like to donate to the 2nd place winner, then the 2nd prize tier will be updated to include your prize.




Information:


The contest is officially open! The contest will run from November 14th to December 25th. The contest entries will be judged from our panel of Admins and the winners announced on January 1st.

All submissions need to be submitted to the folder marked Hearths Warming Eve Contest.

You are allowed one entry for the contest, so be sure it's your best work. Everyone is eager to see what you can do.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. My dA is Blackout-Comix

I always try to be available to those who have need of me.

Here’s hoping you all have a Happy Holiday Season!

I had submitted my artwork from last year for the contest: [link]

But then I created a new piece: [link]

I withdrew the first piece to submit the second one, but I got blocked by the 1 submission limitation. Could someone please manually add my new piece for the contest?

I sent the request for the art to be accepted into the gallery. Once you accept it'll be placed in the contest folder. :)

Submit it to the folder marked 'Hearths Warming Eve Contest." That's all you have to do. :)

We look forward to the entry.

Okay. Thanks!

It'll take quite a while for me to finish it though.. don't expect it to be done within this week or maybe even next. =I

I work my very hardest on these things for two reasons:
1) I don't do them often.
2) Why do bad? Why not show off the best you can be?

I don't really enter for prizes to be honest, just to let my work be a little more known. ^^

I can think of a few things I can do with the points though..

Blackout-Comix Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2012
That's fine. As long as you turn it in by the 25th. That's the end date before we judge the entries.

As far as the prizes go, even if you don't enter for prizes you can always give them away as presents to others. :)

Best wishes.

Thank you. That's what I was planning with the prizes anyway. The only thing I really see that I would really want for myself would be the plushie, but I'm eventually going to be learning how to make them myself hopefully. I have generally no use for points other than to commission others, which I've wanted to do for a while now. Overall, I could make good use of really any of the places that I get. the points, the plushies, or just the fact that people looked at my work all help me in some way.

I'm actually not really that known. Hopefully this contest (along with others) can maybe get me a little more known.

I can see that this contest is going to be a challenge for me already.. I'm a traditional artist, and my idea that I have for the picture will need digital work... this is going to be fun! ^.^

Nope. It can be drawings both traditional or digital, customs, plushies, other crafts, etc. :)

I think he's asking if he can submit artworks like writing, crafts or sculptures.

That's what I figured as well. That's why I said he can submit any of the multiple things I listed as well as what I didn't since I ended it with 'etc.'

[no mature subjects such as drugs], but is alcohol allowed?

It would have to be pretty subtle. If it's the focus or really obvious, then we cannot allow it. Thank you.

"No non-ponies, except for Spike and Gilda."

Do changelings count?
Reply
:iconblackout-comix:
Blackout-Comix Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012
We allow Chrysalis, so we'll allow changelings as long as they are with her and/or the other ponies. We've also allowed changeling versions of the mane 6. If you think your idea or submission may not be okay, please contact one of our admins or me and we'll be happy to let you know. :)
