Von (245) Congratulations Von my friend, your Friendly Plastice prize will be in the post to you in a few days!
We are refreshing things just a little and have some updates/revisions to the rules. Please read these and be sure your entry qualifies.
1 You must check the challenge details and comply with all the specifications. i.e. Tell us what about xxxx inspired you means we expect to see some information relating your project to our challenge on your post.
2 Token elements are insufficient if our challenge is for example "Wings" that tiny little flying thing in the bottom left background is not qualifying element.
3 Entries that are really promoting products and or other challenges are no longer allowed.
With these 3 rules we are looking to see that your entry is really a response to the challenge. We work hard on our team inspiration pieces, we have a system in place to make sure we will comment on all the entries we can and this team often comment on more than the those required by our system. All we ask is that you join in with the spirit of our challenge. Inherent is this is the requirement that your project be new and not a back line to an older project.
We are not going to spend a lot of time policing this, entries that do not qualify will simply be ignored by the team.
4 You may not enter more than 5 other challenges besides ours that is a total of 6 challenges entered.
5 You may not enter this challenge more than 3 times per theme.
6 Winner and Top 3 will be selected by team vote
7 While we try to comment on all entries some of us have a problem with WordPress and have found that we cannot always successfully comment on these.
7a We are also cautious about having to fill in a questionnaire before we can comment. We might not take the time if we have a lot to get through.
7b please turn off word verification
8 Our decision is final in all considerations of compliance with these rules.
9 Prizes are offer depending on availability, we are dependant on our very generous sponsors and from time to time we will provided the prize ourselves.
