The rules have hardly changed from the last couple. You know the drill. As always, new rules and changes are in bold.
Anyone who wants to compete just has to PM an avatar to me by NEXT MONDAY NIGHT (11/28/05). The voting will begin on Tuesday morning (11/29/05.) That gives you a little over a week and a half to come up with an entry. I know that’s more time than I usually allow, but turnout for the last couple hasn’t as good as previous ones, and let’s face it, American Thanksgiving is right smack in the middle of it (sorry to the international SRK’ers.) Once I’ve collected all the avatars, I’ll post them, and the judges will choose their 3 favorites each, and rank them 1, 2, 3. Scores will be tallied, and the winners will receive prizes.

Here are the rules:
1: It must be a new avatar. Do not PM me an avatar that people have already seen, or you will be disqualified. This means that you are not allowed to show the av around before the battle starts in a week. They should all be unveiled simultaneously at the start of the comp. (Because there was a problem with kensavenge at one time, I guess I have to clarify: Only submit your own work. That means an avatar that YOU MADE, dummy!)
2: No artists are allowed to reveal to anyone which avatar is theirs. Any artists caught leaking such information will be disqualified. Of course, some styles are recognizable, so some judge recognition is inevitable. You may bounce ideas off of someone, but please do not make the av public until I unveil them.
3: No one is allowed to wear an av in the competition until AFTER the voting is completed.
4: One avatar per category per artist, please. This means you can each enter 1 still avatar, and 1 animated avatar. Minor animation may be accepted in a still avatar, but it’s completely at my discretion.
5: The avatar must be within premium-size requirements. That means the maximum size is 160 x 100 and under 50 kb. Feel free to make anything smaller than the max if you like. You will not be docked points for this. Because SRK is acting all wacky, I’m also gonna require that all avatars be submitted in GIF format, as that is the only format currently supported by SRK, and hell, people wanna wear these things.
6: No pornography or innapropriate material. You guys know this…(Swearing is A-Ok!)
7: You can submit as many times as you like. That means if you submit an av on Saturday, and then change your mind and decide to submit a different one on Monday, go right ahead. You can make revisions, changes, or just enter a completely different avatar. I’ll use whatever one you send me last. Just make sure you have your final submission in to me before the deadline.
