What is the Monthly Challenge of Pandect? It is a challenge, where the winner will provide series of good quality photographs, illustrations etc of a specific species of animal, the more photos the better! The challenge is creating an Ace based off of the photos of the species of animal provided.

*Please do not whine or complain about how the contest is run, especially about how picking the next animal not a good enough prize. It is not going to change and is not up for discussion in the threads at all.
*In the future there might be a revamp of the Monthly Ace Challenge, but for now it will be run the way it was on the Old PanBoards. More information will be posted at a later time regarding this.

Here is how the challenge goes (Last updated January 31/09):

    *The winner of the previous challenge will host the next challenge by choosing and providing photos of their animal. Add some information about the animal too.

    *You are not allowed to pick an animal that is featured in Pandect!!

    Please use this template when posting the animal of your choice.

    Code:

    POST THE MONTH HERE Challenge Animal is:
    [b]!!LATIN NAME HERE!![/b] or better known as: [b][size=150]!!ENGLISH NAME HERE!![/size][/b]

    [img]IMAGE LINK HERE[/img]

    INFORMATION GOES HERE

    [b]For more pictures check here:[/b]
    POST SOME LINKS UNDER HERE

    [b]And for more information check here:[/b]
    POST SOME LINKS UNDER HERE
    [/center]

    *You are replacing everything printed in CAPS with your own information.
    You can find an example of what your post should look like here.
    * One good quality photo of the animal is all you need to post, please link to the rest of the pictures in consideration of fellow participates and viewers that may have a slow internet connection.

    *Only ONE animal specie per challenge. If the animal specie has been challenged before, you cannot use it again.

    *Please be precise with the animal specie, because some animals have a lot of sub-species. Also mention the latin name of the animal you've chosen to be precise. Only post up pictures of the animal you've chosen and don't post up pictures of sub-species!

    - FEATURED ANIMALS OF PREVIOUS CHALLENGES-
    *this includes animals used on the old panboards*

    *If an animal specie has been hosted before, but a sub-specie of it hasn't been hosted before, you are allowed to choose the sub-specie. However, it is preferred that the sub-specie actually looks noticably different (in colour, for example) from the other (sub-)specie that has been chosen before. This way it won't be as if the same animal specie has been chosen again. Please PM Kawaiiphantom when in doubt.

    *New rule: The animal species cannot be the same as the one picked before by the previous host. This is so that there is more variety and something different each month.

How to participate:

    *Anyone can participate. Participants are required to make a COLORED drawing. You may also get someone to make a drawing for you and then credit that person.

    *Plagiarism and tracing existing pictures made by other artists is forbidden and you will be permanetly banned from the Monthly Ace Challenge.

    *You are allowed to use traditional media and digital media. Photo manipulations are NOT allowed. You may add a photo as background if you really want to, though.

    *Only ONE character per participant. Please draw only one character in your entry for the Monthly Challenge. You may post extra pictures of your character with another character if you want to, but for the Monthly Challenge Poll Vote, we need a picture that only depicts the character you want to enter. This is to make the contest as fair as possible.

    *Remember, just ONE character may be displayed in your contest entry. If you haven't posted a picture depicting only the character you want to enter by the end of the month, your entry cannot be voted upon.

    *Size Limit - 600px wide.There is no limit on length but do not get carried away.

[!] Those who use Deviantart to submit their entries: Please upload (a copy of) the picture to an image host like http://www.photobucket.com or http://www.imageshack.us, since DeviantArt doesn't allow hotlinking. An image that can be hotlinked is required for the poll voting at the end of each month. (If there is a problem with uploading the image to an image host, please say so in your post and Kawaiiphantom will host the image for you.)

ENTRY TEMPLATE:
When you submit your entry, please use the entry template provided below (copy&paste the code):

Note: Only change the things that are written in capital letters. DO NOT change nor delete any of the layout tags, like , [hr] etc. (whatever that is between "[ ]".)

Code:
[u][b][size=150]YOUR NAME HERE's entry:[/size][/b][/u]

[img]PUT%20THE%20LINK%20OF%20YOUR%20IMAGE%20HERE[/img]

[b]Name:[/b] CHARACTER NAME
[b]Age:[/b] CHARACTER AGE
[b]Rank:[/b] REGULAR/GLADIATOR/PRINCE/SERVANT
[b]Description:[/b] PERSONALITY, LIKES/DISLIKES ETC. (WORD LIMIT = 300)

[b]Design concept:[/b] EXPLAIN THE IDEA BEHIND YOUR ACE DESIGN / EXPLAIN IN WHAT WAYS YOUR ACE IS SIMILAR TO THE ANIMAL. BE SURE TO MENTION THE SIMILARITIES THAT ARE LESS OBVIOUS TOO. OF COURSE YOU MAY ALSO INCLUDE PERSONALITY TRAITS. PLEASE BE CONCISE. (WORD LIMIT = 300)


[b]Extra!:[/b]
PUT EXTRA STUFF HERE AT THE BOTTOM. THINGS LIKE EXTRA PICTURES OR ARTIST COMMENTS. :) NOTE THAT EVERYTHING THAT YOU WRITE UNDER Extra! WILL -NOT- BE POSTED IN THE POLL THREAD!


    *Note: Most voters don't pay attention to the profiles unless they need it to make their final decision for their vote. So there's no need put heaps of effort into writing great profiles if it doesn't really matter in the end, since it's regarded more like an extra. However, some people still pay a lot of attention to the profiles and base their judgement on them, so a reasonable description of your character will be appreciated. It doesn't have to be long: just be concise and stay under the limit of 300 words.

    *Post your entry in the thread called: "Monthly Challenge 2007 - (...)"

    *Players can modify their entry as much as they want before the due date.

Voting:

    *Last week of the month will be reserved for voting.

    *Voting guidelines will be posted at the top of each poll.

    *Though art plays a great role in this contest, the voters should take the character design into consideration too i.e. does the Ace have simularities with the animal which it is based upon? Personality traits may apply too.
    Perhaps also take the profiles into consideration. Instead of reading every profile, you might want to narrow down your favourite entries of the poll first and then base your final decision on the profile or the design concept.

    *Participants may also vote, but cannot vote for their own.

    *Participants may not rally their friends to vote for them nor bribe people for votes.

    *If there's a tie in the poll, there will be a coin toss.

    *For discussions of anything related to the Monthly Challenge Poll, please post in the thread called: "Poll Talk". I'd prefer if you'd keep who you voted for to yourself, in consideration of the other contestants.

    *The Aces created by artists for the challenge belongs to the artist only. Unless the artist worked together with a writer then it belongs to BOTH creators, unless one party gives the other full rights.

    *And lastly, you are allowed to join the contest, even if you are the host(ess) of it! However, people won't be able to vote on your entry.

Remember it's for FUN!!!! That means ripping off other challenger's limbs are forbidden.
