:iconinception-plz:Clapping Pony Icon - Thunderlane by TariToons :iconrarityclapplz:
Update: Total prize pool increased. Now it totals 1503 DA points (every point counts! besides, it'd be boring to have a round number). Additional points were added to "Additional prizes".
In case anyone wants to donate points to the pool, feel free to do so. In case someone wants to offer free pictures/vectors/anything like that (as long as it will be made by you, without using any bases, stock vectors etc.), note me.

We've already received entries (4 entries so far)
All the entries will be put into this folder in my gallery of favorite art. I won't be notifying every single time an entry is sent in, so, in case you are curious about them, you might look into the folder once in a while.

People who donated (Except for me and SzafaLesiaka): Wadusher0

So, I got some DA points, and since I got PM for a long, long time, I have no use for them. However, I know that people like points and Premium Memberships you can buy for points.

I decided to organize an MLP-related art contest about Tom the (giant) crab fighting ponies (or doing pretty much anything else you want)!
SzafaLesiaka is a co-organizer, and this contest is actually his idea.
PS: there is info at the bottom how to earn extra points for sharing this journal!

Rules:
:bulletred: Draw a picture/comic, or make an animation, or craft something (e.g. plushie, badge, jewelry, sculpture) that features my OC, Tom the Giant Crab as a main character.
Tom the Fiddler Crab - Reference sheet by labba94he has a reference sheet (notice he is an uca crab, i.e. his claws are of very different size), and He appeared in some pictures you can find on DA!
:bulletyellow: Yes, you are allowed to re-design him to suit your style, adjust the colors to your style etc. Just keep his claw size difference, and the number of his legs right.
:bulletgreen: I prefer a scene when he fights ponies (e.g. Rarity), possibly getting his butt kicked, or getting killed. However, you can draw any theme. You might be original, or choose the easy way (i.e. Rarity fighting Tom). It has to be at least slightly MLP-related, though.
:bulletblack: Yes, you can ship him.
:bulletblack: Yes, you can use your OC in the picture in any way you want.
:bulletblue: Cartoon violence and cartoon injuries are totally fine. Cartoon death is fine too.
:bulletblack: As for suggestive stuff, be aware, I'm not a fan of such things. However, if you want to draw something like that... :icontwilightconfusedplz: Better not...
:bulletred: You can use any medium to make your entry, but you are not allowed to use screenshots taken from the show or official comics, or stolen art, obviously.
:bulletyellow: The winners will be chosen by jury consisting of fan-artists, well-known DA commenters, me and my friends too. However, it will be announced later (I hope some of the potential judges will enter the contest!)
:bulletorange: Sorry, no fan-fic entries. I, and the jury won't have time to read all the fanfics. However, feel free to write fanfics with Tom.
:bulletyellow: You don't have to be my watcher to enter the contest (you are welcome to watch me, though :P)
:bulletblack: How to enter: After you've drawn your entry, put a link to it in a comment under this journal, or simply write me a note. And put info about this contest (at least a link to this journal) in the picture description)
:bulletblue: I think it's obvious that the entry must have been created after this contest was announced, it is after 14/04/2014, 23:37 Poland time :P
:bulletred: Deadline: May 12 - my birthday!


Prizes!
:bulletred: 800 points for the winner.
:bulletblue: 603 points total for artists who will receive a honorable mention. The number of prizes will be influenced by the number of entries (the winner's prize might also be slightly changed in case of an enormous amount of high-quality entries, or in case of a low number of entries). A creativity prize will be awarded for an entry with lower art quality, but with a cool idea.

:bulletblack: If anyone wants to donate to make the prize pool bigger, feel free to do so. Also, if anyone wants to offer picture requests or commission discounts as additional prizes, send me a note

Sharing is caring!
:bulletblack: up to 100 points total for 2 randomly chosen people who will share the info about this contest.
:bulletblue: Entrants of the art contest can also enter the "sharing is caring"
:bulletorange: In order to be eligible for this prize, you are supposed to write a DA journal on your account, and paste the link in the comments here. You must include the following in your journal: link to this journal, a copy of all the rules, prizes, and sharing is caring. Obviously, you are supposed to highlight the fact it's my, not your contest, haha.
:bulletred: In order to be eligible for the "Sharing is caring" prize, you must be my watcher.
:bulletgreen: If there will be too few entries for "Sharing is caring" by the end of this month I will move the prize points to the prizes for artwork entries.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments.

209 deviants said :iconrainbowdashfearplz: Rainbow Dash willingly sold Fluttershy into slavery for a book. And Twilight deemed this deal to be "fair", which is ridiculous because Fluttershy was not owned by Rainbow Dash. Or was she?
14%
82 deviants said :icondoublefacehoofplz: Rainbow Dash forgot she could simply fly over the crowd to reach the book seller.
14%
82 deviants said :iconraritywhineplz: Slavery is legal in Equestria. Confirmed by Twilight's reasoning during the trial.
14%
80 deviants said :iconderpydashplz: Rainbow Dash must be really stupid to think that an old rusty horseshoe would let her buy such a rare and signed book. I know it meant a lot to her, but her attitude was just ridiculous.
8%
48 deviants said :iconrarityfacedeskplz: Rarity and Applejack's plan to buy one thing for all their stuff was flawed from the very beginning, and it's unbelievable they didn't notice any problem with buying together one thing one of them wants.
5%
30 deviants said :iconpinkieshrugplz: Such a sudden resignation of all the ponies who bid for Twilight's book was an unbelievable deus ex machina. There should be at least one or two bidder who would try to use the situation to win the books.
4%
25 deviants said :icontwilicornfailplz: Twilight should have known better that a princess officially visiting a place is a big deal, and everyone is supposed to at least pretend they freak out because she arrived.

25 deviants said :iconohmyfluttershyplz: Fluttershy lost her bear whistle and it wasn't recovered, and no one actually cared about it later. Speaking of it, how can such a small thing make such a loud sound? Oh, I know. Magic.

8 deviants said :icondashlolplz: The crystal chalice seller was even more stupid that Rainbow Dash. I can't see any reason why she would need an old rusty horseshoe. And I can't see any reason why such a horshoe would be worth as much as a crystal chalice.
