You will have until Wednesday the 19th September to send in your entries. Any entries not received by that date will not be entitled to carry on in the competition. Please Note: This Competition Will Not Begin Until We Have A List Of Judges And Entrants. I Will Post Here Again When The Competition Is Starting. Please Inform Me If You Would Like To Take Part.
We are trying something a little different for this month’s competition. Instead of making one cover, we are going to have a knock-out tournament. But, as a twist, each round you will have to design a cover that includes a specific element and /or theme). It could be anything from a stone background, to having to feature a shoe (IMG:style_emoticons/default/8824.gif
) These details will be decided over the next few days. There will also be a set panel of judges, so please can I have some volunteers to help.
So, basically we will have four rounds, with one week to design a cover (for each round), and one week to judge it. The first round will include all of you. Which will hopefully be more than 10 (IMG:style_emoticons/default/winking.gif
) ? (If it isn’t, then we will have to rethink the amount of contestants for each round.) The panel of judges will then have one week to vote on each cover, accumulating a top 10 for each judge. I will then put these scores together, and the ten contestants with the most overall votes, will be announced, and entered into the next round.
Round two. A new element will be decided for this round. If you were selected as a top ten contestant from round one, you will need to include this element in this weeks cover. Again, you will have a week to design your cover. The judges will then have another week to decide their top ten, which will give us 5 contestants for the next round.
Next round; a new element, and just 5 contestants. This time, only two contestants will go through for a final round.
Final Round, the two contestants will battle head to head, using the element designated, and will have up to two weeks to complete their cover. Obviously if they both finish before the deadline, then we can move straight on to the judging. Again, I will collate the judges scores, to give us our winner.
