The Challenge

~ Salute to the 11th Doctor ~

Another one exclusively for Dr. Who! And this one’s all about 11. Following the Christmas Special, you may be feeling like you’d like to do a tribute to mark Matt’s departure from the series. Here’s the place ~ here’s the time ~ here’s the challenge! Bid a fond farewell to Mr. Smith. You know you have the need! :-)

What to enter: anything to do with Doctor 11 (Matt Smith).

This needn’t be a portrait, although portraits are invited. Enter anything relating to his history on the show or, anything relating to his leaving. This includes his final episode (The Night of the Doctor) as well as the Anniversary Special (Day of the Doctor).

Other doctors can appear but not alone. The rule is, Matt must be included in your work, either visually or via reference. There’s a wealth of material… everything from bow-ties to fish-fingers: everything from “Geronimo!” to Einstein’s fez (you did know, it was Albert’s to begin with?)

The same is true of villains (Daleks, Cybermen, etc) and companions. For instance you can feature Doctor #10 but as we all know now, the two have met; so for this challenge, they should be together in your work. No portraits “just” of David, please. Again, in this time and this space, it’s All About 11!

Art (prints) and shirts are both invited. All entries must relate to the show (and to Matt), and be in keeping with our group requirements. Any media ok (drawings, paintings, Photoshop, etc) but no stills or photos DIRECTLY from TV or internet. Your work can be inspired by, or based on sources from the show but should exhibit a high degree of creativity and be your own.

Style, mood, approach are up to you, whether humorous or serious (but please keep it clean, and in keeping with the spirit of the series). Any entries deemed unsuitable, offensive or not in keeping with our group and challenge-theme will be removed at the discretion of the hosts.

Older work is cool ~ and newer work is cooler yet! We’re looking forward to your entries. Although we’re all sad to see him go, we hope you’ll have some fun with this!

Judging / Voting Criteria

Vote more for more than one. Base your votes on creativity and quality of art. And look for the Matt factor! (Those that really speak to you about 11).

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

Rewards & Prizes

Winner gets a Winner’s Banner, spotlight-feature on our Group Home Page and a Special Presentation in our Forum.

But wait! There’s more! If the winning entry gets at least 8 votes, HOSTS (one of us, and maybe both!) WILL BUY YOUR WINNING ART!

The runners up (Top 10) will also get a Banner and a mention in the Forum, provided entries have some votes.

Additional Information

Please be sure your entry is accepted in the group by voting time.
