*****

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

0. Follow rules for MIXED MEDIA above and include the media used in your email entry.

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!

Brittany- you can send just one card each monthly contest. It's in the first sentence of the rules.

I've caught up with entries for this contest. I've been down with the worst flu I've had in a decade, this is the first time I've been up to getting on the computer!

Still taking entries today. It may be a day or two before I get the voting up. Thanks for your patience

Deb, I'm so sorry that you have been sick with the flu. These flu bugs that are around right now are vicious. I went to the grocery store one day and couldn't understand why there were only two cashiers at peak hour. The manager told me that his staff was leaving one by one as they were all suddenly extremely ill. Scary! Well, you take good care of yourself.

Still wobbly. I will try to get the voting up tomorrow.

In the meantime, the March contest theme is Tea/Coffee if you want to get started. Regular contest rules apply.

Thanks for the heads up on next month's theme Deb. I really like that theme and what a trooper you are to get out of your sick bed to put this contest up! After you're finished here, you should put your feet up, have a good cuppa of whatever you like, maybe fiddle with a few atcs while sitting on your chair and go off to sleep.
