10th Anniversary Halloween Fanart Contest

Halloween is coming- and with it the ten-year anniversary of the Dreamkeepers Fanart Contest!

To celebrate, we're pulling out all the stops, bringing back the hand-crafted bead prizes- and adding two shiny new contest categories:

Sexiest Art, and Writing.

This in addition to the longstanding categories:

Best Art
Best Costume
Best Comic
Dimensional / sculpted

Notes on the new categories- Writing includes literature like text-based short stories and poems.  Judging will be based on the first 3,000 words only.  You're welcome to write more- but we may not have time to read it.

Aside from word count, what's our judging criteria for writing?  Don't know, we're just winging it.  Bear in mind I may not be a very good judge, every year deserving entries go without prizes.  So entrants, beware- FUN is the only guarantee that awaits ye!

Regarding sexiest- Liz geared up to make the hand-crafted bead prizes for the year, spotted some dynamite pink-glitter paint, and that was the end of that.

Besides, sexy art is fun.  But considering the contest is for the general public, we would ask that all entries be SFW.  (Safe For Work- abstaining from graphic nudity and stuff.  Except for Whip.  He's always nude and nobody ever calls him on it.)  People are welcome to create more potent fare if they like, but please keep it in venues where the unsuspecting won't be surprised by it.

That's about it!  We'll have concrete deadlines and prize announcements as Halloween draws closer.  It's going to be a fun year!
