Well here are some helpful guidelines that hopefully will encourage more people to make art contests.
Art Contest Rules
Welcome to the Art Contest section.
In here we hold art contests for Banners
, Fan art
(drawings made by hand), a Photography Contest
, or Sprites
If you decide to make a contest in here, which I encourage you to, then you, and you alone, are responsible for keeping it active. It's your job as the host to make sure people deliver for the deadline given, and that the judges you hire for the contest deliver their judgment in time.
If you’re going to make a contest of any sort then you must fill out the form below, send it to a Staff member of this section or a G-Mod that is posted on the list and hope you meet the requirements needed to make a contest.
Name for contest:
Size of Banners:
Other (Any specific images to be used?)
Name for Contest:
Fan Art Contest
Theme (What do you want drawn?)
Theme (What theme do you want, dog's animal's, tree's, nature, water, basically anything that can be taken a picture off "Still nothing sexual or scary or disgusting, if you don't take things seriously then your contest won't be accepted ")
Moderators that can approve contests:
Kumori Gem- Active
Pokemon Trainer Sarah

Fan Art/Drawings:Share A Drawing
Have some fan art or drawings you want to share? Post them in the Share a Drawing thread.
Other Images: General Image Display any other images should be displayed in this thread.
There is one last catch, following the form filled out, we need you to make a description that describes your contest, make it catchy, use good grammar, and please make it understandable.
I doubt I need to say this, but if you haven't gotten a reply about your contest in a week that means it's declined; it's their choice whether to inform you that you have been denied. Of course, I hope you all realize that the mod's are more likely to reply if effort has been put into the contest.
Example of a filled out Banner Contest Form:
