EDIT: THE CONTEST DATE IS BEING EXTENDED TO FEBRUARY 18th TO ALLOW MORE TIME FOR ENTRIES. Please consider making an entry! You have nothing to lose. C;

-----------

Guys! Please read the rules. You need to submit your entry to the linked folder! If it's not in the folder, it won't be judged. Thanks!

I think it's about time that we have another contest, and what better to kick off 2013??
So, I'll get right to it.

:star:

Your theme is....


The saddest moment for a less-loved warrior.

Suggested a long while ago, this theme is pretty self-explanatory.
Cinderpelt and Silverstream aren't the only cats who've had tragedies in their lives. From Broken Shadow's loss of her son Fallen Leaves to the death of Brightsky and her three kits, it seems all warriors have their fair share of pain.
If you'd like to participate with literature**, you are free to do so! But if you choose lit, you're obviously going to have to do a little bit more creative work - perhaps you'll write about how Thrushpelt felt when he was rejected by Bluefur, or how Frostfur felt after her daughter Cinderpaw was crippled by a monster. It's up to you!


:star:

Rules!


:bulletwhite: Your picture must be appropriate. I think you all know what that entitles.
:bulletwhite: No linearts may be used! The drawing should be completely new, made entirely by you.
:bulletwhite: The cat you draw MUST be on our list! This list is found on the W-L-L home page.
:bulletwhite: Your picture must fit with the theme.
:bulletwhite: If your picture has excessive gore or violence (which yes, is okay since this is a saddest moment contest, and it might include a little blood), please put a warning on it. We'll let you be the judge of where the line is, but we won't be afraid to ask you to put one on if we deem it too much.
:bulletwhite: You are allowed just one entry for the contest!
:bulletwhite: When you're finished, please submit your entry to THIS FOLDER.

**If you choose to do a literature piece, make sure that it isn't a moment that has already been written! You may NOT pull direct text from the books, as that is copyright material. The moment must be one that is NOT already written in one of the books (including field guides, super editions, etc) - basically, if you're going to write a literature piece about how Frostfur reacts to her daughter Cinderpaw's accident, make sure it's from Frostfur's perspective. If you want to add quotes from the book (like something Fireheart says to Frostfur during this time), that's fine. But anything other than dialogue really shouldn't be in your piece.

If you have any questions, please let us know in the comments.

:star:

Judges!


~NO MORE JUDGES NEEDED, THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO VOLUNTEERED~
:bulletwhite:Judges can NOT enter the contest to win. It's always okay if you still want to make an entry for fun, though!
:bulletwhite: If you wish to judge, be prepared to give us some decent 2-3 line reasons as to why you think so-and-so's entry should place when we start judging the entries.
:bulletwhite: Judges will be looking for:
-Quality. This one is pretty simple. How much time does it seem like the person spent on it? Is it sloppy, or has the person gone to great lengths to make the picture or literature shine?
-Creativity & Emotional Impact. How creative is the entry? Does it delve deep into the character's emotion and sorrow? Does it make you simply frown, or does it make you tear up a bit?
-Character choice. No, we aren't going to be biased towards certain characters. But an entry will be more appealing in terms of the contest if it is about a lesser known character (i.e., a story or image of a sad moment about Frostfur would most likely be chosen over an equal-in-quality story or image about, say, Breezepelt, since Breezepelt has much more story and personality already written about himself).

I AM SORRY FOR COMMENTING SO MANY TIMES.

I just took a look at the comments below and some link of the entries, and I noticed that four or five, including mine, entries has not been accepted in the folder. I hope all of the entries will be accepted by February 1st, or else, they won't be counted as entries.

I tried to re-submit my work, but it said that it would exceed the limitation of 1 deviantation in 7 days. Please work out this problem. Thank you.

And I have a question about the cats yu count as less-loved. Is Darkstripe on there? 'Cause I dont think they really focused on him too much nor do yu see many pix for him. That's just my opinion. ^^;

It said less than 1300 to be counted as less-loved. I looked up 'Warriors Darkstripe' and there was only 1204 results. ^^;

:iconteahorse:
Teahorse Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2013  Student General Artist
Darkstripe doesn't need a warriors added. If you search "Darkstripe" it comes up with 2661 results, so he isn't on the list. ^^;
Reply
:iconspottyofriverclan:
SpottyofRiverClan Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2013
Well, the reason I asked in the first place was b-cause I'm writin a fanfic about Darkstripe's past, and at the beginning, the earlier less-loved warriors are gonna be mentioned a lot (Sunstar, Tawnyspots, Willowpelt, etc.). So, would it be okay to put it in W-L-L, despite the fact Darkstripe's the main focus? ^^;
Reply
:iconteahorse:
Teahorse Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013  Student General Artist
I talked to another admin about it, and we both came to the conclusion of probably not. Even if the less-loved characters were mentioned a lot, Darkstripe is the main focus, and that's what counts. So no, we would not allow it in our group, sorry. There are plenty of other warriors groups that will accept it, though!
