A Storm Rising
Deadline for entry is midnight (GMT) on Wednesday 30th June
(Note for UK entrants: We are now running on BST which is an hour on
from GMT. That means your deadline is currently 1:00am BST). There is a 5
minute grace period for getting your entries posted properly, after
which a moderator will post a list of valid entrants and voting begins.
Voting will then close at midnight (GMT) on Wednesday, 7th July, when a
moderator will total up the votes and announce a winner. Toward the end
of the challenge a mod will pick someone at random from the participants
(or pokers) to set a new challenge for next month (so keep an eye out -
and your fingers in check).Final entries ONLY in this
please, no conversation.
All discussion, arguments,
drinking games, cuddly toys, and WIPs should be posted in the WIP
rules: It is compulsory to submit a minimum of 2 different WIP stages
in the WIP thread in addition to your entry. Links to your WIPs must be
included for you to be eligible for inclusion. Artwork must also be
created within the time period of the challenge, any previously created
works will be disqualified. Moderators will discount any votes deemed
suspicious and adjust the result accordingly.

WIP rule and a guide to adding WIP links can be found here: http://community.imaginefx.com/forums/thread/107660.aspx

Moderators monitor the votes in these challenges to combat cheating and
maintain fairness. We may discount any vote we consider suspicious and
disregard any attempts at vote rigging or screwing with these
Finally, please keep posted artwork to a
sensible size, preferably below 500k and around 1100 pixels or less.
This is especially important in the WIP thread as we have to check these
when setting up voting, and there are also members on slower internet
connections that should be considered.
