    • Competitions

    Competitions are often run in the graphics Workshop. Enter your art (following the competition requirements) into these competitions, and be in with a chance of glory. The rules for the monthly GWC (Graphics Workshop Competition) can be found bellow. Any other competitions will probably follow the same rules, or have the rules stated in the o.p.

    • Medals

    The Graphics Competition Medal is awarded to members who win the weekly competition (found in The Graphics Workshop) a certain amount of times.

    Graphics Competition Medal (Bronze)
    Awarded to any member that has won The Graphics Competition between three to eight times.



    Graphics Competition Medal (Silver)
    Awarded to any member that has won The Graphics Competition between nine to fourteen times.



    Graphics Competition Medal (Gold)
    Awarded to any member that has won The Graphics Competition fifteen or more times.



    Graphics Competition Rules

    • Post your work in the current submissions thread for it to count for voting. The submissions will end and new competition start on a day of each week, giving users plenty of time to upload and post their own work:7 days generally ,at the discretion of the manager. The work is then voted on, with the poll staying open but hidden for a week until it closes.
    • Members may only vote once and cannot vote for their own work. They may not advertise their own work (see bellow) or use Alt accounts for extra votes.
    • Copying other members work will result in being banned from The Graphics Workshop for a period of 1 month.
    • Max image size: 550x175 pixels, max file size: 250KB (unless stated otherwise)
    • You may not enter more than one signature/entry per competition.
    • The graphics item must be yours, and made by you. You may of course take and manipulate images off the internet/games e.t.c, but the finished thing must be originally yours
    • It must be in accordance to the current competition theme. If it is difficult to judge whether or not it is within the theme then the Art Staff shall decide.
    • You may of course advertise the competition, but you may not PM people requesting their vote for your work, or ask for their vote in any type of way.
    • The picture must of course fit inside the general ToS rules on images, I.E no explicit images, censor by-passing e.t.c
    • The picture can not contain your username or any other identifier unless specifically noted in the competition theme or individual competition rules.
    • You can not advertise your own work that has been submitted in current competitions anywhere on TWC.
    • You can not use your current competition entry as your signature or avatar until current vote has ended.
    • Once a member submits an entry in the Submission thread of a Competition, unless the entry is disqualified in some way, the entry cannot be entered in any other Graphics Workshop Competition.

    And of course, please follow the

    ToS
    A very important part of the ToS for the Graphic Workshop contributors to know:
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    Obscene Content (3 or 6 points)


    Obscene content is not allowed. This includes, but is not limited to:
    • Providing images or videos of nudity. Nudity includes:
      • Any figure whose genitals, pubic hair, buttocks, or (if female) nipples or areolas are exposed, partially or totally; or are not exposed, but it's clear that this is only because of the angle of the shot or incidental intervening objects (e.g., hands, hair, bits of cloth).
      • Visible outlines of a penis, scrotum, female nipples or female genitals through clothing (e.g., "camel toes").
      • Anything that falls narrowly outside the previous provisions, at the discretion of the moderators.

      This applies to photographs, drawings, or any other representation of humanoid figures. It may also apply to non-humanoid figures such as animals, at the discretion of the moderators. Nudity may be permitted for serious and non-titillating purposes, such as the exhibition of recognized
      art or historical models in modifications, at the discretion of the moderators.
    • Providing image, video, or audio files that represent or hint at sexual intercourse, foreplay, , etc.
    • Verbally describing genitals, sex acts, , or similarly inappropriate content. This does not include passing references, but includes descriptions that are graphic or include any details.
    • Providing images, videos, or verbal descriptions of an unreasonably disgusting nature. This includes, but is not limited to: excrement, real-world violence, and extreme virtual or imagined violence.

    Links may not be posted for the purpose of providing obscene content. If a website incidentally includes some reasonably obscene content, it's acceptable to link to it for some other purpose as long as a clear warning is given. Similarly, if content incidentally includes some reasonably obscene content, it's acceptable to include it in a post for some other purpose, as long as a clear warning is given and the reader must actively click a button to view it (e.g., spoiler boxes or YouTube videos).
    Excessively obscene content is still not allowed to be posted or linked to in any fashion. The distinction between moderate and excessive obscenity is at the discretion of the moderators. As always, if you aren't sure, ask a moderator.

    An important reminder to save Moderators time.

    • Please remember to put your original post (OP) or large images into Spoilers.

    RULE UPDATE

    The picture can not contain your username or any other identifier unless specifically noted in the competition theme or individual competition rules.

    And remember guys once you have a number assigned to your submisson in the voting pole you can not advertise it. This falls under this rule.
    You may not advertise your own work within the competition.

    Just a reminder so we don't have any surprises.

    You can not advertise your own work that has been submitted in current competitions anywhere on TWC.

    You can not use your current competition entry as your signature or avatar until current vote has ended.
