    To enter this month's contest, submit no more than one (1) ATC (SIZE MUST BE 2.5 x 3.5 inches, either portrait or landscape) entry in the selected theme to "contest.atcsforall@gmail.com" in standard jpg format (No less than 150 dpi please).

    Submissions must be received by the date posted at the top under "Entry Window".

    FOLLOW THESE RULES TO ENTER

    1. Send your card as a jpg to contest.atcsforall@gmail.com

    2. Include your AFA username with your entry. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    3. Images should be at least 150 dpi. Should measure 2.5 x 3.5 inches, portrait or landscape. MAKE SURE YOUR CARD IS THE RIGHT SIZE!

    4. NO watermarks or signatures on the front of the image as we are trying to keep all entries anonymous to better the contest experience. All members are welcome to participate. (*No participant can win more than one prize per year - the year will run from Jan 1 thru Dec 31. You are still welcome to play but once you win, your card is ineligible for voting till the next year.)

    5. Do NOT post your entries in the gallery, Facebook, or on the web until after the contest ends (those posting prior to the end date will be disqualified from competition.) Once we have announced the winner of the contest feel free to upload it and claim your card!

    6. Art MUST be your own original work.

    7. You will receive a confirmation email when your entry is received. If you do not get an email you are NOT entered. If you have not received a confirmation after 48 hours, PM debs913. DO NOT RESEND YOUR ENTRY EMAIL if you don't hear from me right away. If I need you to resend, I will let you know.

    8. To avoid possible disqualification for vote solicitation it is highly recommended that entrants refrain from posting about the contest while voting is running. And if you admire someone's work and think you recognize it, wait until voting ends to post public compliments!

    9. A FREE TIP--The better your scan or photo of your artwork is the better it will look in the contest! Take the time to make sure it is lined up square, cropped, bright enough, and in focus.

    Please send all questions about status of your card as a pm - All messages to the thread referring to a specific card will be deleted to keep within the rules of the contest to keep ALL cards anonymous.

    GOOD LUCK!

    I bet this will be a big entry. Who wouldn't want to paint some pretty flowers.

    You can do mixed media if you want, but it is not a special month.

    Quick Question: Is it too late to enter? Have the other entries been posted yet? If they are, they probably have a good number of votes and it might be hard to catch up, if that's the case. Thanks!!

    salome000, it's not too late. Check out the first post for all the details on submitting your artwork for the contest.
    All entries are posted together a few days after the deadline (May 31, 2017 by Midnight Eastern Time) for voting.

    Entries have been coming in while I was away for a couple of days. I've caught up on acknowledgements now.

    Will be busy with a bunch of farm stuff (spring is our crazy time!) so will try to get voting up on Sunday.

    June's theme is LIGHTHOUSES if you want to get started. I'll get the official notice posted by Monday.

    How the heck do I find the entries to match #s?

    I don't know how to vote! (Love them all but have picked favorites from home page....didn't vote....can't find total entries!)

    HELP???!!!!
    If I comment on a card, it almost always means I would be very interested in a trade! (Obviously, if it's marked traded I am just complimenting the work!)
    Always happy to trade with anyone!

    Go to the main Monthly Contest thread. Each month the voting page is posted near the top with the title Vote For .... (and the number you can vote for). I do this the same way every month, so you should be able to find it. Here's the link to the main contest thread to bookmark.
