Contest Rules and Guidelines
How do I enter the contest here?
You must be a RCSCC CHAUDIERE or NLCC ADVENTURE:
What are we looking for:
There are four general aspects to a picture you want to consider:
What is illustration?
For our contest purposes, "Illustration" encompasses all forms of two dimensional art that use neither photographic nor 3D rendered elements. This commonly includes all types of "real" media (pencil, pen, paint, charcoal) as well as digital media (Painter, Photoshop, Gimp, Paint Tool Sai, MS Paint, etc), in a range of styles including painterly, line art, manga, vector, graffiti and more.
Originality - You must be the original artist of your entry, first and foremost. We'll trust you on that, but it needs saying- do not enter anyone else's artwork as your own; not only will your entry be disqualified, you could be banned from participating in any contest on the site, in any category.
No photographs, rendering, tracing, gridding.
Digitally edited scans or photos of your own artwork is permitted (i.e.: using photoshop to color ink line art, post-processing paintings, etc.).
Filters: Using applications/plugins to render, filter, or generate aspects of your art can be helpful. But we highly discourage using these tools to create the art for you.
Brushes and textures: Native application brushes and textures, as well as copyright-free brushes found on the net, are almost always acceptable. What brushes and textures are NOT allowed?
Text - WWW addresses on your image are not allowed. Watermarks on your image are not allowed. Artist signatures are allowed if they don't distract from the work, promote the artist, or act as watermarks.

Description of Artwork:
What cannot be used in a submission?
Simply put, you must be the artist of all of the artwork you submit. No tracing, no filtering a photo, no submitting someone else's painting, no chopping multiple drawings together and calling it your own. No cartoon work already exist and/ or that belongs to other artists or companies, such as Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks, Dragonball, One Piece, Haikyuu, gaming cartoons, etc...
You must be the original artist of all of your work. Brushes and Textures included.
Is tracing permissable?
Tracing is recreating exact parts (details, outlines, lines, etc) of an existing work of art into your own. Whether physical (paper tracing over artwork) or digital (scanning artwork and drawing over it in a computer program), this practice is forbidden.
Your entry doesn't meet the intention and worded requirements of the contest rules.
What are the size requirements for an entry?
When submitting a picture or scan of your art work, image entries should be a minimum of 300 pixels/ inch
Files should not be bigger than necessary, so use the JPEG-format to its fullest. For larger images try to stay under 1 MB.
