Hey everyone! I've been wanting to do one of these for a while now! And now that the summer's coming, I can't wait to get started! In this post I'll tell you about how you can enter, and what you can enter!
I decided to put categories into this art contest to give different styles of art a better chance at winning something! There will be two main categories with three subcategories each.
The first main category is "Saga/CW." This category will include pictures from the saga(episodes I-VI) and pictures from the CW(both the old and new). The first subcategory is "Traditional." This includes any hand drawn pictures(not including those drawn or colored on the computer). Next we will have "Coloring." This will be any picture that has been colored(if drawn, then colored, it will go into the "Traditional" subcategory/does not include those colored on the computer). Next comes "Digital." This will involve anything done digitally: Digital edits of photos, pictures taken with a camera, or screenshots.
The next main category is "EU/Fan-fic." This category will include pictures from the Expanded Universe(anything other than the saga or Clone Wars) and those from your own fan-fics(stories/characters that you have made up). The subcategories are the same for this main category: "Traditional," "Coloring," and "Digital." The same as above applies to these.
There will be a prize for each subcategory. From those 6 winners, there will be a Grand Champion, and Reserve Grand Champion chosen by special guest judges(there will hopefully be three, and I will serve as a tie breaker, if needed)! The prize for "Saga/CW"-"Traditional" will be a special drawing of the Saga/Clone Wars(person to draw this not yet decided)! The prize for "Saga/CW"-"Coloring" will be a coloring page never seen before! And the prize for "Saga/CW"-"Digital" will be a digital wallpaper done specially for you! The same prizes will be given for the subcategories of the "EU/Fan-fic" category! The Grand and Reserve Grand Champions will receive a photo edited by me! Note: These prizes are to be for your personal use only, you may not put them on the Internet. There are also as a special screening of a movie, only a certain amount of people will see it at first, but later down the road it may be opened up to anyone who wants to see them!(the coloring pages may be posted online only after you have colored them.)

I reserve the right to prohibit an entry if I see fit. I also reserve the right to remove any photo from the contest if I see fit.
