Contest Rules - read before posting
« on: June 30, 2013, 11:16:13 am »


General rules:
  • To enter the contest you need to have an account on the Gang Garrison 2 forums. You can create one HERE.
  • Each contestant can submit as many entries as they want, but each qualifying for a different subcategory. Meaning you can submit eg. a drawing and a pixel art, but not two drawings. Be reasonable with the subcategories, though.
  • Each entry has to be submitted in a separate topic. Topics' name should be "[Category] - [Username] - [subcategory (if applicable)][name of the submission]".
  • You can submit entries finished/started before the contest has started in all categories, but you have to state that in the OP.
  • You can post WIP images and discuss in your topic, but be sure to post your final entry in the OP (your first post).
  • You can change your entry as many times as you want, but make sure to change title in topic's name and post your work in the OP.
  • Depending on number and diversity of entries in each category, we may announce subcategories in which you can vote. In some cases, we will sort the entries, so that they can only be voted for in one subcategory (eg. pixel art or fragvid)
  • We allow cooperation, but only up to 2 people, with the exception of MODS category, where bigger teams are allowed. Make sure to put a link to team members' forum profiles in the OP as well!
  • If you're looking for a team to work with, you are allowed to create a thread here (Haxxy general board).
  • You can submit your entries until August 27th, but we may also give you some "overtime" after that, so it's not a final deadline.
  • You are allowed, or even encouraged, to add links to your entries in your signature

If something seems unclear, or if you have some questions, please post your concerns in the Haxxy General board or ask in the FAQ topic.

More information regarding subcategories:
What are categories and subcategories?
Categories are the ones with separate sets of rules.
Those are:
  • Best Maps
  • Best Mods
  • Best Plugins
  • Best Screenshots
  • Best GG2-Related Art
  • Best Fake Update Poster
  • Best Menu Backgrounds
  • Best Guide and Tutorial
  • Other Cool Gang Garrison-Related stuff

Subcategories are created within the main 8 categories in case of big number and/or diversity of entries to ensure every good stuffmaker gets rewarded.

Do I have to come up with a subcategory?
No, as long as you only submit one entry in a category. If you want to submit more, each has to be in a separate subcategory. Don't make the subcategories too similar, though. We'll keep an eye on the entries and most probably notify you if there are any problems with yours.

EXAMPLES OF SUBCATEGORIES
GOOD:
Taunt animations (pixel art)
Fragvid
Most gory screenshot
Photo

AVERAGE:
BLU team-related art
Best art on a CTF map

BAD:
Best art drawn with left hand
Non-gang garrison-related art
Highest score on a screenshot


If you spot someone breaking the rules, don't hesitate to inform Haxton Sale himself or create a topic in this board.

Be sure to tell everyone about our little contest.

If you're new here, why don't you stay a while longer, and take a glance at Art created by our forum members. Also check out the Maps and Mods section, maybe you'll find yourself interested in them. Don't forget to introduce yourself and, of course, post your creations in sections mentioned above.
