Sci Fi

Science Fiction Art & Writing Group

Best Mash-Up!

This challenge closed over 2 years ago.

The Challenge

~ $20 voucher ~

This challenge is for Fan Art only: entries must combine elements from TWO sci-fi series (or movies ~ or shows ~ or games ~ or famous sci fi books, etc.) in ONE shirt design or image, geared to make us laugh. Work must feature characters or items we would never see together in the Real World, such as in the cover image; characters from Dr. Who with characters from Mystery Science Theater-3000, which in every sense are “galaxies apart.”

All mediums are welcome (drawings, paintings, manipulated art). T-shirts are invited, as are posters, works of art, etc. PLEASE BE SURE at least ONE MAJOR ELEMENT in your work is SCIENCE FICTION!! There are other mash-ups, but they don’t qualify for Sci Fi! Again, to clarify, ONE reference must be sci-fi ~~ the second could be anything, although it must be recognizable.

NO ABSTRACTS!! And please list your sources in Description!

Also, keep in mind that we’re dealing here with tribute art; as stated in our rules, the Sci Fi Group accepts fan-based artwork provided it displays a high degree of original interpretation. Art must be your own. No shots from movies or tv, nothing taken straight from other, copyrighted sources! If in doubt about the status, mark your work as “Not for Sale.” As always, the responsibility is with YOU, the artist, to be up to date on the legal implications of your work.

Any entries not adhering to our group rules and challenge theme will be removed without notice at discretion of the hosts. If in doubt, please check our group home page and features for our guidelines and requirements.

Judging / Voting Criteria

Vote for your faves, as always. You may vote for more than one.

PLEASE VOTE!! With the recent format change, there has been a steep decline in voting; but a challenge ain’t a challenge if barely anybody votes, so again ~ VOTE, VOTE, VOTE! We will try to send reminders out if feasible.

No Soliciting of Votes! Any member caught padding the ballot box either via Bubblemail, Facebook or any other venue, will have their work removed. Let the entries win on merit, not popularity!

Rewards & Prizes

Along with a winner’s banner, bragging rights, etc.winning image will be featured on our group home page and the winner will be welcomed to our crew of Featured Artists here at Sci Fi! If it gets at least 5 votes, winner also gets a $20 voucher from the Bubble!

Runners up also get a banner and a mention (and their entries will be featured in our Forum) if the entries get at least 3 votes apiece. If we have at least 20 entries this will be the Top 10. If less, we will recognize the Top 5.

Ties are recognized. Also, hosts may enter challenges if they desire (after all we’re members too!)

Additional Information

Remember… all entries must be science fiction, and involve two different sources (or more). And please LIST your sources!! Some, like Trek, are recognized by nearly everyone but others may be more obscure. If we don’t see a source, and we don’t recognize your movie, series, show or book, your work will likely be removed.

Hope you’ll have a lot of fun with this!
