271 contenders over 4 rounds. 396 new pieces of artwork. 1 winner. And not one 1-on-1 battle.
The event will be ran as it was last time; each of the pairings for each battle in a round are chosen completely at random. Whoever receives the most votes per battle from an ever-rotating judging panel of the industry's best advances to the next round.
Round I: 271 initial contenders in 3 (one 4) man battles Round II: 90 contenders in 3 man battles Round III: 30 contenders in 6 man battles
Final Round IV: 5 contenders, one winner.
This is the grand finale, what you 5 have worked your way through 265 other competitors to get to. Blow our minds, ladies and gentlemen.
The official deadline stands at 11:59pm PST Sunday, January 21st, 2007.
Submissions: Every contestant will be responsible for hosting their own image. You will be required to submit a link to your image to my email at firstname.lastname@example.org in the yourname_round_TD.jpg format, with the title of your email yourname's entry. Make sure you image is under 500k, as that is approximately the forum limit for attachment size. Please try your best to follow the format here, it saves me an assload of work. No WIPs are to be posted before the deadline.
Size: Keep your images large enough so that the detail is preserved, but do your best to keep the file size down (Photoshop's Save for Web function can help quite a bit).
Judges: to be announced...
