ACE OF THE YEAR - A Nominated ACE Challenge

This challenge closed about 6 years ago.

The Challenge

Welcome to the ACE of the Year Challenge! To be eligible to enter, your work must already be an ACE and be nominated by a fellow member using the banner below.

If you are lucky enough to have more than one of your works nominated, then it becomes your choice, as to which one to enter in this Challenge.

Works must also belong to the group to be entered in the challenge.

You may nominate as many times as you like BUT please limit your nominations to ONE image per Artist.

THE IMAGE MUST BE AN ACE and found in our Gallery
But remember…no nomination, no entry.

Judging / Voting Criteria

Choose the Ace that takes your breath away, the one that leaves you speechless at its beauty, in awe of its ambience or disturbed by its deep dark story…

Choose the ACE of all ACES!

It’s going to be tough to vote, but please try and limit your votes to no more than 3…

Remember, it is an honour just to have your image nominated for this challenge! That means someone thinks it is pretty darn special! :)

Please keep the voting fair. Please do not solicit votes from outside the group.

Rewards & Prizes

OK… We were hoping that RB would come through with a Grand Prize for us… but they didn’t! So the best we can do is…
*Permanent feature on the home page as Ace of the year winner with your Avatar and links to your home page (and website if you have one and wish to provide it)
*top 10 suggested to RB for homepage features
*group avatar until we have another challenge
*a $20 GV

If you have any other ideas that would be a fitting prize please contact me and let me know. :)
