Deviants

Welcome all, to this year’s Summer Contest for 2015. It’s high time that we, as a fandom and family, come together to celebrate the late Monty Oum’s creativity by collaborating on the biggest contest this group has yet seen! Let’s make him proud, people!

This contest will be a little bit different from the Halloween contest. For starters: We will have two categories: fanart and fanfiction! Both categories will be democratically judged separately.

The theme of this contest will be plain and simple: Summer. That’s it! Go wild, or go simple! It can be one character, all of Team RWBY, all of JNPR, a mix, etc. It can be happy, funny, fanservice-y, or horribly depressing! Imagine an elderly Team RWBY enjoying a hot summer’s sunset in their wheelchairs and wrinkles, fondly recalling the days of their youth. Play around with the spectrum of emotions!

Restrictions: Canon characters, who have appeared on screen, only. No gore. No porn. Bikinis won’t be a problem as long as they’re not g-strings with stilettos, haha! Shipping is welcome, just keep it SFW! There will be strict quality control for this contest, as we want the best. If your prose is horrific, it will be denied. If your drawing is a five minute scribble done with your toes, it will be denied. If your best efforts don’t make the cut, then they don’t make the cut; and we can’t do much about that.

Submissions: All pieces of fanart and fanfiction MUST be clearly labeled, stating that it is an entry to this contest. And it must be submitted to the Summer Contest 2015 folder. There will be strict quality control for this contest, as we want the best. If your prose is horrific, it will be denied. If your drawing is a five minute scribble done with your toes, it will be denied. If your best efforts don’t make the cut, then they don’t make the cut; and we can’t do much about that.

Prizes: We, the admins of this group, are starving students; as such, we must call upon the RWBY family to offer up their talents for contributions. We will update this journal occasionally to bring you the latest updates on that. The specifics of prizes will be finalized after we have a good idea of who is offering what. People are welcome to offer prizes as well as participate in the contest!

The Current Prizes are currently-

1.SAmaryllis is generously offering a half body shot of any RWBY character, canon or OC!

2.Final-Boss-Emiko is promising a head shot of any character, RWBY, OC, or non-RWBY for first place AND a chibi drawing for second place!

4.Nova-Akiyama is sharpening their stylus, which is a very bad thing to do, and offering a full body shot of a canon RWBY character or a RWBY OC.

5.Nattie-Bug is offering a DIGITALLY DRAWN, full body shot of a single character of any Rooster Teeth show or OC with flat coloring, and a single color background.

10. Ravido will donate points! 200 for First, 100 for Second, 50 for Third, and 25 for Fourth as well as Fifth place!

-and will be updated on the 5th of July! All prizes are subject to change, and some prizes may be transferred to different place winners to ensure that first place doesn't hog all of the goodies.


Voting: Democracy shall decide the fates of all entries, as it did for the Halloween Contest. The specifics will be finalized in the immediate future.

Deadline: August 25th, 2015 AD.

Any and all questions, comments, and prize offerings will be responded to with haste! Best of luck to everyone!

Not for a while. Maybe a couple of months ago we did our last major reform?

I do not understand. What do you mean art is disappearing?

Someone who's being an asshole (said by the comments below) report the only mature content of RWBY that doubly harm others with the underage rules few months ago. Most of the people talk about it, even Luna, Nix and the couple of others.

Luckily this appears to be the work of idle haters, so it's not going to impact the fandom. Fear not!

One quick question regarding the challenge/contest I mentioned earlier...I tried to submit it to the miscellaneous and other folder, but it was declined. I looked in the folder and other people have listed commissions, raffles, etc. Why is this stuff allowed but not mine? What gives? Also, I read the latest official rules and it says nothing about declining contests/challenges. Please help.

That was probably my fault, we had never discussed commissions/contest info in our rules (just never came up). I think since another group I admin doesn't take those, I had been declining them here. Sorry about that!

I looked into it and can't answer that question. Resubmit it it, and there shouldn't be a problem. I have my own question: what was the reason they gave for declining it?
