    #4 Free (It can be anything for the Halloween!)

    Rules:
    #1 The concept must be original
    #2 Renders can be used
    #3 Resolution, sizes and format is up to the participant now but for the Res, a max of 300ppi
    #4 Following a tutorial for an effect is ok.
    #5 1 category = 1 entry ;)

    Do we have to use the sizes you posted, or is that max?
    I would also suggest not saying only jpeg, because some (me) prefer png for better quality.

    umm what does that mean? that we have to enter 4 artworks, one for each category, if we decide to enter?

    and how do we enter, do we just send our stuff to you via PM?

    Sorry for the late reply, I was busy at school because of college week.
    I made an update. I want the due date for the contest to be moved for more time, what do you guys think is the best one? (for all of the categories in account :) )
    The Edit function is really helpful so thanks Admins!

    ok cool. For the new due date I' d suggest Nov 2nd.

    from the description so it won' t confuse anybody

    Yeah I think that would be best, we should just PM them all to you and then when the deadline is over you post them all in a new thread with a poll and let the people vote then. and we still need a new deadline too btw

    Ah I think 4 is ok and remember if there were too many more, voting would become difficult as there aren' t alot of users here that would do the voting.
    I think it' s only got something like 9 votes so far

    More people = more fun :(
    Would you like to participate again, Rod and RomaGrafix, in another contest: Christmas Special?
    There will be more time to prepare!
    I was also thinking if entries should only be the things posted in the contest thread (so people will see how many and who are participating). :)
