We had a few questions about the contest rules that I'd like to post so we can clarify things a bit:
1) is the contest going to be "anonymous"? Will we be emailing the photos to you (or someone else) and then the voting will take place without knowing how made what? Or will it be like "Here's my custom: photo" type thing?
1) That's up to you guys. If you want to submit it publicly we are totally cool with that. Same goes for any WIP pictures. If you are worried about people copying your figure or attempting the same thing you guys don't have to show anything publicly. We are still figure out exactly how we will run the voting procedure, but we will probably do it leave it up to you guys whether you want your name atached to the pictures or if you'd like to remain anonymous for the voting. When we announce the winners we'll also disclose who made what.
2) does it have to be a figure that has not been shown/seen before on this website or any other website?
2) Yeah we are looking for new figures. It always has kind of bugged me when people submit a figure they made a few years ago in any customizing challenges just because it fits the theme. For me the entire fun of the custom challenges/contests is making a new figure. That really is the point of having these anyways. While it is fun to show off old customs, only new figures will be eligible to win any prizes.
I hope this clears things up a bit. Keep the entries coming.
