Event overview: http://writeoff.rogerdodger.me/event/12
Hello, denizen's of /art/. Every few months, we over at /fic/ do a collaboration competition with /art/. Seeing as we've (mostly) moved into MLPchan now, I figure you guys would be interested.
The competition is relatively simple: prompt → art → fic. First, everyone decides on a worded prompt to act as the event's theme. Artists draw pictures from the worded prompt, and then writers write stories to the pictures.
The art round starts Sun, 09 Dec 2012 06:00 UTC
and lasts for 5 days, ending Fri, 14 Dec 2012 06:00 UTC
. For those too lazy to do the conversion, if you make an account on the site (with the correct timezone settings), all the times will display in your local timezone.
Worded prompt suggestions start Sun, 09 Dec 2012 04:00 UTC
, last an hour, and are followed by a one hour voting round.
But why should you
participate? Well for one, there's a whole bunch of writers that are going to write stories to the submitted artworks. Having someone write a story inspired (even if just a little) by your work is pretty awesome.
But wait, there's more! The winner will be awarded a copy of IDW's My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

For there to be a winner, there obviously needs to be some way of ranking the artworks. A public poll will be provided for everyone to give the artworks a numeric score from 0 to 10. In addition, each artwork is awarded 1 bonus point for every story inspired by it.
The winning artwork is whichever has the most points after the bonus points are awarded.
You may submit as many artworks as you can draw in the given 5 days, but the scores are not cumulative! Each artwork gets its own score. You might spend the whole time working on a single, well-developed piece, or you might spend it getting as many ideas out there as possible. Which strategy is best? That's for you to decide.
You don't have to do anything special to participate other than follow the rules: http://writeoff.rogerdodger.me/event/12/rules
So, uh, yeah. That's it! (I think). If you have any questions, feel free to ask them.
