Special Surprise Package

Tis the season of giving! Something I have noticed in contests is that those with greater talent are always the winners of contests. And this doesn't seem fair. This mysterious package will be given to someone who may not have the greatest skills, but tried really hard and deserves it. Even though they didn't win, they still entered and gave it their all. This is not someone who would have made it to the notable mentions, as all of those people were close to winning. This prize is only for this contest and contents of the prize will be announced with the winners of the contest.

I am going to purchase another prize package from :iconanimecontestgalore:. I did for the last contest and it seemed to work quite well. Some of the prizes listed are from them, and while I can't guarantee the prizes, I can say that I was satisfied with the last contest and they came through with everything that they promised. ]

Donate Prizes
:bulletred: For every prize donated, you will receive a feature of one of your artworks on this journal as well as the contest winners journal.
:bulletorange: If you would like to donate points, please visit :iconaryiatia:'s homepage and donate the points there. Make sure to specify the points are going towards the contest.
:bulletyellow: If you would like to donate a llama, picture, or anything else, please either comment on this journal entry or send a note to the group.
:bulletgreen: Note: Donating prizes WILL NOT increase your chances of winning.
:bulletblue: Thank you! :huggle:

Become a Judge!
:bulletred: If you would like to become a judge, please either comment on this journal entry or send a note to the group.
:bulletorange: If you are a judge, you MAY NOT participate in the contest. This is to prevent conflicts of interest.
:bulletyellow: Thank you! :huggle:

Please spread the word about the contest around! Either fav this journal entry or write about it in a journal! While it's not required for this contest, it would be much appreciated! That way, more people will enter and possible prizes can be added to the winners!

If you have any questions, be sure and ask!

Aryiatia Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2012
Nope! When you have your submission all ready, just go ahead and submit it to the Winter 2012 Contest Folder. That's pretty much all to it :) Remember that it needs to be your own OC, and colored with traditional mediums. Other than that, you're all set to go! Let me know if you have any other questions! :)

Awesome!!! The interview is still up in the air...that's why I didn't include it on the list of prizes. But if you win and would like one, we could certainly arrange one :)

Fan-characters aren't allowed, are them?
Reply
:iconaryiatia:
Aryiatia Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2012
No, sorry. Fan characters are not allowed for this contest - it must be your own original OC. Hope that doesn't stop you from joining though! :)

I don't assure you anything since I don't draw OCs very often, but I'll think about it. :)

I know, but I already have a huge list of fanarts and fan-characters ideas to realize, and with commissions and such there is small time left for anything else... ^^'

So , we draw a pick of our oc(s) in a winter/x-mas theme and thats all?? Loll sound great foe meh (even if it cant be digital ... ) my scAnner doesnt work very well , so it may affect my artwork , are you (juges) going to count that ??

:iconaryiatia:
Aryiatia Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012
Yup! That's pretty much all that you have to do! We will not take into account a bad scanner (you could photograph the picture if you like!), but do realize that it may make it a bit more complicated to see details. But not to worry, this should not hinder you in any way when the judging for the contest comes. Good luck and can't wait to see your contest entry! :)
