#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 ;)

The submission of entries is until November 2, 2010! >:D
Submit the files or links through pm please.
Critiquing and voting of entries will be done through posts in a new thread.

You may also post comments, suggestions or questions here :)

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.

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.
Also I think you should remove this sentence
There will be a need and a limit of one entry per category meaning 4 entries if you'll participate all.

from the description so it won' t confuse anybody

For the submission.. Should the links (or files?) of the entries be pm to be collected then a single post consisting of all entries in a thread for poll will be made?

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
