NOT ALL ENTRIES WILL MAKE IT TO POLL
A MAXIMUM OF 45 ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED IN THREE CATEGORIES:
ACCEPTANCE TO POLL WILL BE BASED ON THREE CRITERIA:
1: DID THE ARTIST FOLLOW THE BRIEF? (allowance for creative takes will be made).
2: IS THE PIECE ARTISTICALLY SOUND? (Is the illustration "finished?" - did the artist pay attention to anatomy, perspective, other fundamentals?).
3: IS THIS ILLUSTRATION THE BEST ONE? (reserved for rounds with a large amount of entries).
Depending on round turn out, the number of accepted entries in a given Category may vary from round to round. For example, if only 5 Advanced entries are made, that leaves EXTRA 10 slots open for Intermediate and Beginner.
Only Advanced Entries will be accepted for the the thumbs on the Queens Roster. If no Advanced entries are available for a round, then it will fall to the Intermediates. If no Intermediate are available, then it shall fall to the Beginners.
SUBMITTING YOUR ENTRY:
1: You must submit a full sized image and thumbnail image.
2: Make sure your thumbnail image is hosted OFF SITE at someplace like www.photobucket.com
or other image hosting site that allows direct linking. The reason for this is that this way, we do not lose the thumbs if the bandwidth for a single account is exceeded (as happened with CHOW 99).
3: If you do not include BOTH images, you WILL NOT be taken to poll, regardless of how good your picture is.
4: THUMBNAIL WIDTH must be no wider than 350px @ 72 dpi.
5: Make sure your name and CHOW # are EASILY READABLE on your thumbnail. If not, this may prevent you from going to poll.
6: Use the Standard format (Below);
PLACE THE IMAGE IN A FRAME WITH YOUR NAME/TOPIC
SAVE YOUR FILES IN THE FOLLOWING FORMAT:
THE REST IS EASY:
1: No comments before poll is set.
2: Sit back and enjoy the show.
3: Good luck to all.
