The Challenge

~ The Title Says it All ~

(Or almost all!) Enter your Most Amazing Glimpse into the Future! ARTWORK only (no shirts or i-pod covers).

No Fan Art, please! For this challenge, all work must be original! YOUR ideas – YOUR art – YOUR locations, characters, etc. (You may use stock in the creation of your image, but if so please give credit where it’s due, in your description). Images derived from other sources (Star Trek, Dr. Who, etc) will not qualify for this one.

Any medium okay (drawings, paintings, Bryce, Photoshop, etc). Style and approach are up to you. Remember – this is Science Fiction! You don’t have to believe it, just think it up! Whether Good, Bad, or Ugly… the book isn’t written yet, the future could be anything. Do make it sci-fi, though, in keeping with the focus of the group. Here’s your chance to Wow us with the Wild and the Wonderful! Peer into the distant depths of time and show us what could lie ahead!

The usual group requirements apply, so if in doubt check our group home page for those.

The winning image will become our avatar, so keep in mind that “verticals” don’t work for avatars.The top and bottom get cut off ~ so try to keep your format horizontal, please.

Judging / Voting Criteria

Vote for more than one. Pick the Most Amazing, based on quality of artwork, imagination and originality.

There have not been lots of votes in recent challenges. This is discouraging to hosts and members alike – so if you enter, PLEASE VOTE! Reminders will be sent if possible.

As always, 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

Winning entry will become our newest avatar for one full month. Winner also gets a Winners’ Banner, bragging rights, a feature on our Group Home Page. If we have a tie, the second winning entry will become our avatar the following month. In addition, winner is inducted to our Hall of Fame (Featured Artists!)

If the winning entry’s vertical or square and we can’t use it for an avatar, we will use it for a banner. Either way your image gets exposure and acclaim!

Runners up (Top 10) also get a banner and a mention in our Forum.

Additional Information

Please be sure your entry’s in the group by voting time!

All entries not compliant with our challenge theme, challenge rules or group requirements, will be removed at the discretion of the hosts.
