Over the weekend, me and the boss discussed the idea that some of you might prefer to work in black and white; and that there might be times in which we would have to use a black and white avatar in such instances that a color document is not possible (faxes, for instance). So with that...
We are now going to have a separate category for black and white art! Same basic rules, just that now you can try your hand at a black and white avatar! And yes, you can submit one entry for color, another for black and white. The prize for the color art is still $100, but the prize for the black and white art is $50. If you happen to be so excellent as to be the winner for both color AND black and white, then you could get $150 total out of this!
Thing is, though - if you're going to submit work to both the color and the black and white contests, then note that THEY HAVE TO BE DIFFERENT WORKS! LOL
In other words, we will not accept a color and a black and white version of the same art! Yeah, we thought of some of you lazy asses trying to get away with submitting the same work to both contests! Nope, if you're going to win both contests, then you gotta work for it! :-D
And besides, we want you to challenge your creativity in this, because color and black and white art present different creative impressions, so it's best to work with each format's strengths rather than trying to present the same art in both formats. See, we're trying to help you guys be better artists!
Anyway, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask, but it's pretty straightforward, don't you think? :-)
Good luck, whether you try just one of the contests or both!
