Good news, everyone! I have even more good news! The results of the Silver Screen contest are in! After being trapped in a Zeblonlian holding cell for weeks on end, starved of food and water, the winners of the poster contest have finally come forward to claim their prize (and battle a terrible case of scurvy).

Contest winners:
[size=x-large]Grand Prize Winner -- Blotch![/size]


[size=x-large]Runner Up #1 -- Nexus[/size]


[size=x-large]Runner Up #2 -- Azures[/size]


[size=x-large]Runner Up #3 -- Gami[/size]


[size=x-large]Runner Up #4 -- Kawayama[/size]

Aww, don't say that...
I likewise spent a LOT of time working on both this and the T-shirt contest, and won nothing.

At least you spent a lot of time on a picture that you (hopefully) are proud of... But seriously... prizes are nice and all, but try and enter contests to have fun. :) there is always a chance you won't win anything, ESPECIALLY on a big site like FurAffinity.
We had about 4 pages of entries on that one thread!

Feel proud of your own achievements, just the fact that you conceptualized, started, and finished your entry on time is an accomplishment.

That's exactly the reason why i don't enter contests myself (not art contests, i'm not an artist - but gaming or programming ones, for example). Lots of adrenalin and anticipation hurts me. Even if i feel that i may win, i still don't enter - i can't accept defeat in something i specialize in ;D


Art contests, however, are born to be for sheer entertainment of oneself. You get to see lots of entries, styles, methods. And no matter if you win or not, you participated - which adds some special 'memorabilia' flag to your entry. At least i like to think so.

Yay, I won some bets! *looks at Nath* told ya Blotch would win =)

But as much as I saw that one coming, I'm rather surprised Runner Up #1 and #4 made it o_O there were other entries that were, at least in my opinion, superior. Not that my opinion 'd count or anything ^_~

Anyways, big congratulations to the winners! =)

If judges don't like your style, you have no hopes of winning an art contest. It's like a beauty contest. It depends mostly on the eye of beholder.
 
Ha, I especially like "Over the Hemp", best spoof I've seen in a while. I saw it on the gallery but didn't relize it was a contest....huh.....guess I should get out more.

My thoughts exactly... Drug appeal and fetish appeal, maybe? I dunno...
Not so much drug appeal, but if it makes a good parody. Sometimes it's more than just "making a poster". Sometimes about a good play on words, how it ties into the fandom, how it stands apart, etc.

Sometimes its about creativity, skill or making something stand out.

This is the last "prize contest" we'll be doing. I'd rather re-invest the money back into FA (and other neat things).
 
you know it doesn't necessarily have to be the last prize contest 'neer. you could always offer free pics for people as a prize, i mean you do great work digital or otherwise. nothing like winning a free commision....wait thas an oxymoron my bad. but you know what i mean, technically a prize like that would only cost you the time it takes to make it.

Well, no free pics from me... I have so much to do as it is I can't afford to take on anything else right now. =P I'm on hiatus from any new projects.

I should have www.wikiffinity.net up tonight.

Art is not industry. You can't measure the creativity or skill in any known units with any method that will give arbitary results.

Art judging is a subjective thing.

Last? Maybe not... just take a long break from it. When FA saves up some money, then make a contest.

THE COUNCIL:
Judging will be performed by the Fur Affinity administration. All entries will be judged on creativity and effort as opposed to purely skill. Additional judges may be added over time.

Entries will be judged based on the following criteria:
  • How much effort did the artist put effort into the image?
  • What did the artist do to make their entry stand out from the rest?
  • How much personality was the artist able to input into their image?
  • Does the entry look like a movie poster?

So mutch for effort to give some prize money to some people that we all know can do better. I'm not talking about the "Grand Prize Winner" - Blotch, he is great and doing that poster in traditional and all.
About re-investing the prize money. That would be a better idea, fixing the search engine and all, speeding the site etc...

i really liked miyabisan's snow crash posters, especially the two teaser posters.
i suppose they might have been disqualified for lack of furry content - pity.
