FlipGeeks-Pencilbrush Art Contest: FAQs ,PRIMER and what you need to know.. for now!

Since we have not yet finalized the mechanics, we figured it would be good to let you guys know the important stuff right away!

So here’s a little FAQ, Primer or whatever important details you should know in getting ready and joining the Art competition:

What’s the competition about?
– It’s an art contest! In a single page, draw a character related to the theme (No colors). Make it unique, exciting, creative and fun! And one of the main goals is to create and expand awareness of pinoys when it comes to art and comics.

– The contest will have a “Superhero” theme, so this means you can’t submit a drawing of a horse, or a man doing owling or whatevs! You can draw existing characters like Batman, Superman, Spidey, but it would definitely be great if it was your own character.

– There will only be 3 Categories: Best Male, Best Female and Best Creature design (eg. Aliens, Monsters, Folklore/Mythological). So please bear in mind these categories when you start on your entry.

Who can join?
– Everyone! No age limit! Pros and Non-pros! I MEAN EVERYONE! and its NATIONWIDE!

Submission Process?
– You will have to scan your work, and just email us directly the scanned image — 1 entry per person only. So make sure you have access to a scanner. It’s that easy!

Voting Process and how to win?
– There will be a voting process, and it will involve Facebook LIKES (FlipGeeks and Pencilbrush). The Likes will not be the sole basis in determining the winners but it will surely play a vital role.

The Winners and Prizes?
– 3 winner will be chosen for each category, each winner will receive a gift pack that includes 1 pencil brush and an artbook! And in case you don’t know, the pencilbrush tool isn’t sold locally so here’s your chance to take home this cool tool and add it up to your drawing arsenal!

So that’s all you have to know for now, the final mechanics and full contest details will be posted soon. More prizes may be added in the future so please stay tuned!
