Ladies and Gentlemen,Without any further ado I proudly announce
the first
SWGemu Forum Signature Contest
for all members of SWGEmu.

This contest will be the original creation of a STAR WARS themed forum signature image for community judgement.

The images will be judged based upon
aesthetics,
creativity/originality,
complication,
and adherence to contest rules.



Submission Rules:
  • Contestants may only enter ONE signature per competition.
  • Signatures are ONLY to be submitted in a private message to Darkrider.
  • Signatures being submitted can not be publicly connected to the artist until AFTER voting ends.
  • Once a signature is submitted you can not change your submission, please submit wisely.
  • Submitted signatures must be created by you. All finalists will be inspected for their true origin.(Gimp, PSP, PSD layered project files and/or links to any images used [e.g., renders or stock art] are encouraged in addition to your submission file).
  • Any ripped or stolen sigs will be disqualified.
  • Submitted signatures must be created specifically for the current competition. Previous works will not be accepted.
  • Do not post or reveal your entry to the forums until after voting is completed. I.e., donít tell anyone in any way what sig belongs to you or that you have even entered the contest (e.g., putting the sig as your actual forum tag).
  • All entries must be submited by 11:59PM EST (based on forum pm timestamp) on Jan 24, 2012. No late entries acceped.
Signature Rules:
  • All entries must adhere to the SWGEmu Website Terms of Service found at: http://www.swgemu.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26 especially rule 2.6, ďall users...may not...transmit or facilitate distribution of Content (including images or videos) that is harmful, abusive, racially or ethnically offensive, or overtly sexual."
  • The STAR WARS theme should be clearly evident in your submission.
  • Any FORCE UNLEASHED based sigs will be given 0 points towards creativity. Seriously.
  • Signatures shouldn't be larger than 500 x 300px. But may be made smaller.
  • Signatures should be submitted in PNG, JPG, or GIF format.
  • Animated Signatures are allowed as long as they meet the above specifications.
  • Your signature can not contain your user name or any watermarks associated with your identity.
Judging Rules:
Once the submission deadline has passed, all the sigs will be placed in the thread for discussion and perusal (remember not to reveal which sig is yours [there is no leway on this] and those who do not honor this will be disqualified) and assigned a number for identification.
  • A collection of non-SWGEmu member judges who specialize in sig creation will assess the initial entries, and will assign a top 3 based on the criteria listed above. After the top three is selected, a new thread with a poll will be created. This selection time has yet to be determined but will probably be in the range of 5-7 days.
  • The places of the top three will be determined based on the pollís results.
  • Any and all SWMEmu members are welcome to vote for their favorite signature. One vote per member.
  • You are allowed to post the reason why you chose your selection in the poll voting thread.
  • You MAY vote for your own submission in the poll (but you may not reveal publically that you did).
