When we planned this contest, we wanted to give back to the community. It would be a friendly competition that would help promote excitement and fun around the theme of Shadowness. We wanted a LOT of winners. That's why it was called For the Win.
We came up with a points system we thought was fair. We wanted to test the waters. What we did not expect was how successful the contest would be among the artists and how many gems would come out of it. While we think that most contests are hardly fair in the end, we still think we could have come up with a more balanced voting system. But, we do believe in the power of the community. Now, without further ado, here are the winners picked by YOU, the community.
There are 9 categories and 3 winners in each category. For 1st place 50$ will be awarded, for second place 25$ will be awarded and, 25$ for third place.
Prizes Total 1,500$!
9 Winners will be issued a 1-year subscription!
All 27 Winners will be issued a Shadowness t-shirt.
All 27 Winners will be promoted in a Shadowness Daily Feature.
All 27 Winners will be issued a Contest Certificate.
