The Challenge

~ Please read and follow challenge rules! ~

In preparation for the 50th Anniversary show on 11/23, we are starting off with a grand salute to VINTAGE Dr. Who! This means, Doctors 1 through 8. The Old Stuff ~ the Classic Stuff ~ the Original ~ anything you want to call it.

Enter anything derived from, inspired by, or based on the Vintage Series (1964 through 1996).

Please save work based on newer Doctor Who for upcoming challenges!!! This applies especially to portraits of the Doctor. For those of you unfamiliar with the older series, “Classic” means PRIOR to Christopher Eccleston in 2005. So for this one, the following Doctors qualify:

William Hartnell ~ Patrick Troughton ~ Jon Pertwee ~ Tom Baker ~ Peter Davison ~ Colin Baker ~ Sylvester McCoy ~ Paul McGann

DON’T WORRY! We’re not ignoring the rest! They will get their moments too! In the meantime, we know there are a lot of CLASSIC Whovians out there still loyal to their first, or possibly their second doctor. And statistically, the older Doctors seem to get the shorter end because the new ones are so hugely popular. So if Tom Baker is your fave ~ if Jon Pertwee is your fave ~ if it’s anybody on the list~ here’s your chance to put him in the limelight!

ART and SHIRTS are both invited. All entries must have an image (No Just Text!) and all companions, villains, monsters, aliens, etc., must be from the Classic Series, not the new!

(We will not be Dictatorial about it: a Dalek is a Dalek, and over time they haven’t changed a lot. But please try to emphasize the classics and avoid the latest; there will be other challenges, for those)

As always, all our group requirements apply; and keep it tasteful, please! Anything we deem offensive or not in keeping with the spirit of the series will be removed.

And if you’re a “Newvian”… here’s your chance to get a little more familiar with the series which began it all, in 1964! Check it out right here from the BBC.

Judging / Voting Criteria

Vote for more than one. Base your votes on content, artistic excellence, innovation, creativity and most of all the WHO Factor!

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. So play fair! Let the artwork win on merit, not your popularity.

VOTES are IMPORTANT! If you enter, please participate!

Rewards & Prizes

In addition to the pride of winning and the recognition, Winner gets a winner’s banner, special mention on our Group Home Page and a permanent feature in our Forum. He or she will also be among our Featured Artists in the group. Either way… exposure, exposure, exposure! And the more the merrier, on that!

Ties are recognized so if we have more than one, all winners win in turn!

If we have more than 20 entries we will recognize the Top 10. (who also get a banner and a place of honor on our Winners Page). All winners will be featured officially as well, over time.

Additional Information
