2019 EQ Fan Art Calendar Guidelines
« on: January 04, 2018, 10:54:20 AM »

The theme for the 2019 EQ Fan Art Calendar is: BONDED

**You may use characters from the original quest to the final quest but you must do your best not to spoil things for those who have not yet read the most recent installment of the series**

Submissions for the 2019 Calendar are being accepted:
Jan 4th, 2018 through October 31st, 2018

THEME

Submitted artwork should represent the theme "Bonded"

This means you can represent any bonds that take place in the EQ saga not just lifemates/lovemates. Friendships, home/family, child/parent, animal bonds and the like are perfectly acceptable.

DETAILS

•The bond you choose to represent must be the main focus of each submission. You are free to use additional characters in your submission if you wish but it is not required.

•You will be required to PM Maggie to let her know you are participating in the calendar this year. Please do not post a message to the board, only send a PM.

Please copy and paste the following into the PM with all fields filled in:

Your Name:
EQFA User Name:
Artist Credit (Real or User only):
Email Address:
Character Choice:


•As sign-ups come in I will post which characters are being used to the thread (how they are being used and who is using them will be kept secret). Let's try and keep things as varied as possible. If a character is the main focus of someone else's submission I may ask you to choose a different character. Best to check the list before signing up.

•You will be asked to update Maggie in March, June and September with your progress. This will help to determine if we will have enough entries for the calendar. If at any time you feel you cannot continue just send a message, there won’t be any hard feelings.

•Please keep in mind that you have approx. 10 months to get your submission ready, which should be more than enough time. If there is no response to the requests for progress I will have to assume you are no longer participating and I will have no choice but to find a replacement artist. Communication is key, so please keep in touch.

•You may submit up to three entries for the calendar but before you contemplate that second or third entry you must first finish and submit one entry to Maggie.

GROUPS

•You may work in groups of two if that makes things easier for you. Please let me know who you will be working with when you sign up.

•How you work in your group is totally up to you. One of you may supply a sketch for the other to ink and colour or you may work together to complete the scene. It doesn’t matter so long as you both agree.

CONTENT

•Entries must be original artwork created specifically for the calendar. The use of photos or "borrowed" art for backgrounds is not allowed.

•Entries must not be available for the general public to view online until the okay is given for general sharing. Before then, any entries found online in any form (thumbnails, crops, etc.) will be disqualified and removed.

•Canon Elfquest characters (of any race) only. No what-if characters (i.e., Worldpool).

•PG-13 or under.

FORMAT

**Please make sure your submissions are the correct size. Any submissions that are not 3300x2550 pixels or 11 x 8.5 inches at 300dpi will not be accepted**

•All entries should be in full color, with some type of a background.

•Size: 11"x 8.5" (pictures must be landscape oriented - wider than they are tall)

•Resolution: 3300 x 2550 pixels (11" x 8.5" at 300dpi)

•File format: JPEG/PNG format only

HOW TO SUBMIT

•When you are ready please email your full-sized entry to Maggie. Please PM Maggie when you have an entry ready to be submitted.

•Entries must be received by midnight CST, October 31, 2017.

Include the following:

•Your submission as an attachment not embedded into an email.

•Title of your submission. Titles will be included on the calendar.

CREDIT

•The artist credit will be used for credits on the calendar/website.

PUBLISHING

•The twelve winners will be chosen by a panel of judges (if more than 12 entries are submitted).

•The finished calendar will be available for download at elfquestfanart.com. In addition, the calendar will be published at the Elfquest Redbubble shop.

QUESTIONS

•Any questions about the calendar may be asked and answered on this thread or PM Maggie.
