    Entry Window: February 1, 2018 to February 28th, 2018 by Midnight Eastern Time.
    Email entries to: contest.atcsforall@gmail.com


    This month’s theme will be:
    VINTAGE VALENTINES
    MIXED MEDIA ONLY


    ~ PRIZES! PRIZES! PRIZES! ~


    First Place - Nifty label by your name, showcased on the AFA home page, and a selection of great prizes!

    Second place - Showcased on the AFA home page with a special selection of art goodies chosen just for you!


    PLEASE FOLLOW THESE RULES TO ENTER:

    1. Your ATC entry MUST be your own original art work.

    2. To enter, submit no more than one (1) ATC entry to contest.atcsforall@gmail.com

    3. Include your AFA username with your entry. This is a must!

    4. Images should be at least 150 dpi and measure at least 2.5 x 3.5 inches, portrait or landscape.

    5. No watermarks or signatures on the front of the image. All entries must be anonymous to better the contest experience.

    6. All members are welcome to participate.

    7. No participant can win more than one prize per year. The year will run from Jan 1 thru Dec 31. Once you win, your card is ineligible for voting till the next year. You are still welcome to play, but your ATC will be for "exhibition only".

    8. You will receive a confirmation email when your entry is received. If you do not get an email confirmation, you are not entered. If you have not received a confirmation after 48 hours, please PM ohhappyday.

    9. Do not post your entries in the Gallery, on Facebook, or anywhere on the internet until after the contest ends. Anyone posting prior to the end date will be disqualified from competition. Once we have announced the winner of the contest, feel free to upload your entry to the Monthly Contest Gallery.

    10. 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.

    AN IMPORTANT TIP! ~ The quality of your scan or photo is important to your success! We want your artwork presented at its best. Please take time to be sure it is lined up square, cropped, bright enough, and in focus.

    Please send all questions about this contest as a private message to ohhappyday. All messages to the thread referring to a specific ATC entry will be deleted. Again, this is an anonymous contest and all entries must be kept anonymous.

    GOOD LUCK!

    This is the first email I've received about this, and it's Feb 25 now; I wonder if that's why you didn't get more entrants?

    Well, that's a good point Sandra! We are assuming everyone knows about the contest since it's listed on the homepage and in the forum, but apparently not everyone does. Since we had so few entries, I asked Carole if she could send out a reminder this month.

    I hope you've got time to enter. If not this month, please consider it in future months. The themes change monthly. Here is the link to the 2018 Contest Themes.
