FlipGeeks-Pencilbrush Art Contest Mechanics

FlipGeeks Pencilbrush Art Contest

I. 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 competition will officially start on November 8 and will end on December  27, 2011

II. Theme?
– 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, or other characters from video games but it would definitely be great if it was your own character or your own rendition of a character.

UPDATE: All drawing should be in pencils, NO INKING and NO COLORS

III. Categories?
– 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.

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

V. Submission Process?
– You will have to scan your work, and just email us directly the scanned image — 1 entry per person, per category only.

UPDATE: You can submit upto 3 different entries per category, so this means you can submit an entry per category. 1 for best male, 1 for best female and 1 for best creature
