Hey Barricadiers!

Voting begins today! You have until April 14th to cast your vote- read the rules carefully so your vote will be counted!

How to Vote:

:bulletblack: Look at ALL the entries in the contest folder. Consider which piece shows the THEME the best and the quality of the art.
:bulletblack: Send a NOTE to the group with the LETTERS of your two favorite pieces in order of which you liked the most. (You may vote for your own piece)
:bulletblack: Votes left in the comments box or with only names of the pieces, not the letters will NOT be counted. By letters I mean the letters of the alphabet next to the names of the entries in the list above.
:bulletblack: All votes must be received by April 14th, this gives you a week!
:bulletblack: ONLY members may vote. Votes from non-members will not be counted and any one soliciting votes from non-members will be DISQUALIFIED. This is a group contest, not a popularity contest.

An Example Vote

:D Theme: "Les Heureux" :D

This theme is open to lots of interpretation. Perhaps you might explore who in the story are "the happy ones" as opposed to being "the miserable ones." Or you might illustrate what would have made "the miserable ones" happy. Or another thought that crossed my mind, right now many fans seem to  be "the miserable ones," what might have made or might make the fans "the happy ones" (either about the 25th anniversary contest or the upcoming movie).

This theme is broad, flex your creative muscle and show us what "Les Heureux" means to you!

Contest Deadline: March 31, 2012

Voting will begin April 1st (no joke!) and end April 14th.


This is not an illustrative-exclusive contest, but I would encourage anyone considering entering a poetic or prose piece to consider that it is difficult to judge writings against illustrations. A literature exclusive contest will happen in the fall.

:bulletred: The contest submission MUST be submitted by the deadline: March 31st.

:bulletyellow: NEW FOLDER! "Poetry and Prose"

I have added a new folder for poetry and prose deviations! Instead of being organized  by their inspiration, written deviations should be submitted to this folder from now on. Submissions to this folder will require a vote temporarily, this may be removed in time. Only the FIRST chapter of any fan fiction will be accepted. This makes it so much easier for people to find your work and start at the beginning. They then may follow you if they wish to read more!

:bulletyellow: REMINDER: Dolls made through doll generators, SIMS, and other work using content that is not your own (i.e. professional photos of actors/actresses) will NO longer be accepted into the group. If you violate this rule your work will be removed.

Can we vote for ourselves?

Eek, sorry for the late reply, I don't know if you've voted yet! Anyway, yes, you may vote for your own piece. :)

Argh. Thanks to the stupid high school final exam business, I haven't had time to even start yet. And suddenly it seems I'll be away from home for about two of those four days. So, since I guess there won't be an extension, I guess I'll have to just vote this time (which annoys me, I had some fun ideas for this! But I'm afraid they're two big to make happen in a day and a half...). Oh well, happens.

And since I don't have the time to participate now, throw a request from me to the #1 prize!
