How Often Will Contests Be Held?
Contests will be held every month.
How Are Themes Picked?
We gathered member's opinions on how to pick themes, and here's how it works. #Space-Club
will hold a poll with 10 options, and you guys vote for the one you like the most. Feel free to send in suggestions for a theme, and we will make sure to include it in the poll. The next theme poll we hold, we will drop the winning theme and the theme(s) with no votes or the least amount of votes, so we will cycle out the ones we've used and the ones that people don't appear to have much interest in.
How Will Contests Be Judged?
We are going to do this old school #Apophysis
style. For those unfamiliar with what this means... keep reading. We will post a weekly news journal with thumbs of all the entries on the day the contest ends. Each thumb will be labeled with a number, the title, and deviant. To vote, members should simply leave a comment with the number of your favorite submission. The submission with the most votes is the winner. We will also post the runner ups and any ties.
How Long Will Judging/Voting Be?
One month. This gives plenty of time for everyone to vote, and is further explained below.
Can the Admins Submit?
Yes. Because the voting is done by the members, and all the admins here would enjoy being able to take part in the fun, we have decided that it is fair for the staff to submit pieces to the contests as well.
Can A Member Who Submitted Vote For Themselves?
No. This is the most simple answer, it would be an unfair and biased vote. Submitters *CAN* vote, just not for their own entry.
Can the Admins Vote?
Yes. An admin's single vote means as much a member's single vote.
How Do We Know Who Wins?
The winner of the contest will be posted the day the next contest begins. This is sort of hard to explain, but we'd like for it to be a nice continuous cycle. When *Contest A* ends, there will immediately be another *Contest B* beginning. When *Contest B* ends, the winners of *Contest A* will be posted, voting for *Contest B* will start, and a new *Contest C* will begin.
Are there any Specifics that Members Should Know?
The only real specifics are that the submission must follow the theme. They can be any dimensions, with no limitations. Just make sure it's still space art, and have fun!
Does the Winner Get Any Prize?
If by prize you mean subscription or print or something physical, unfortunately, the answer is we do not have the funds to do that. The winner will be our featured deviation (we have tried a couple ways to handle the featured deviation, but this should take care of it completely) - and will be featured in our journal for two weeks.
If you have any unanswered questions, feel free to send a note or leave a comment and we'll get back to you as best as we can. If you think we missed an important FAQ, make sure to let us know!
We look forward to seeing submissions! Let the fun begin!
