The Challenge

~ The funnier, the better! ~

Dark Humor, Light Humor, Comic Humor ~ All Humor. Entries must be based on SCIENCE, whether Mainstream or Alternative. All entries here should bring a smile to the viewer ~ possibly a big loud laugh. The cleverer, and funnier, the better!

All mediums invited (drawings, paintings, Photoshop, etc). Style and approach are up to you; humor can be subtle or outrageous ~ dark or cheery ~ creepy and surreal and/or simply silly. Just be sure your entry has a scientific or a pseudo-scientific theme as that’s the focus of the group!

Hard Science/ Fringe Science both acceptable (the latter might refer to UFO’s and other such phenomena as yet unproven or accepted by the mainstream).

Shirts and Artwork both ok (but no i-phone covers, please!)

Artwork not in keeping with our theme or group requirements will be removed; so if in doubt, check our Features and our Group Home Page to see what we’re about.

Judging / Voting Criteria

Vote for more than one. Choose the funniest – the most well done!

If you enter, PLEASE VOTE! Without the votes, it’s not a challenge. We will try and send reminders out if possible.

In accord with Bubble policy, no padding of the ballot box! This means, no campaigns via Bubblemail or on other sites like Facebook to acquire votes, and no voting from multiple accounts! Any such activity will result in the removal of your image, possibly expulsion from the group. It isn’t fair to other members. Let the artwork win on merit, not your popularity!

Rewards & Prizes

In addition to the recognition and the fun of winning, Winner also gets a Winner’s Banner, spotlight-feature on our Group Home Page and a Special Presentation in our Forum. He or she will also be a Featured Artist in our Hall of Fame.

Ties will be recognized so if we have more than one, all winners win in turn.

If we have more than 20 entries, runners up (Top 10) also get a Banner and a mention in the Forum. If we have less than 20 entries, we will recognize the Top 5 provided each entry gets some votes.

Additional Information

Please be sure your entry is accepted in the group! You can put in the challenge first, but add it to the group by voting time.

That much said, put on your thinking hats and get creative! We’re looking forward to some funny work.
