Well, hopefully #PKMN-Contests
isn't just a group to it's members. It isn't just about showcasing Pokemon work, it's about competing in fun drawing competitions with the chance to win ribbons, llamas and possibly points depending on how big I hope this group becomes.
I created this group as I thought it was a fun idea for community to do and it would be different to other contest groups because there would be a 'Ribbon Case' to fill in and so much more to the group. I really hope every member enjoys it here and if there is a way you could either get involved or suggest improvements then by all means, please suggest them to be so I can hopefully make the group an even better place.
So, this group might seem pretty complicated, but actually it's quite simple. Every month, there will be a 'Contest' where deviants compete to win a ribbon, which will be added to your Ribbon Case. In case you don't know exactly what a Pokemon Contest is then here is the definition:Pokémon Contests (Japanese: ポケモンコンテスト) are a type of competition often contrasted with Pokémon battles and held in Contest Halls. Pokémon are judged on their condition and moves in two rounds, to determine which is the best of its category. There are four contest ranks: Normal Rank, Super Rank, Hyper Rank, and Master Rank. Every contest, as well as having one of the five categories, has one of these four ranks.
This may be quite confusing, but the idea is going to be simplified. Every Contest, you will draw your Pokemon (the one who you selected to fill your badge case out with), performing one of it's four moves. This entry will be placed in your Ranks folder. (Either Normal, Super, Hyper or Master) When the Contest is finished, I and the 3 other judges will judge the entries, based on Creativity, Accuracy and Effort. One person will win from each rank, thus earning themselves a ribbon. If you win 5 contests, you become a Top-Coordinator. So, basically you're drawing your wonderful Pokemon, on stage, performing!Rank
This is important! There are four ranks in the group: Normal, Super, Hyper and Master. These ranks have nothing to do with progress in the group, but refer to your drawing ability. Feel free to choose whichever you like and be fair to yourself. Normal Rank is for those who are new to art and Master is for talented artists. There will be 4 winners every contest as there is one winner for each rank. Remember, when submitting any entries to the group put it in your ranks folder.Ribbons
These are won in the groups monthly contests, where you simply have to draw your Pokemon performing one of its moves. If you win a contest you win a ribbon and once you gain 5 you become a Top-Coordinator, meaning if you wish to you can help admin the group-you can still enter contests but you can't win anymore ribbons-though you can fill in another Ribbon Case! You can also submit misc contest work to the featured folder.
You can start submitting entries to contests when you've submitted and filled in your Ribbon Case-please note there is only 1 entry per deviant, unless you make multiple Ribbon Cases. I hope to see many submissions and I wish you all the best of luck! Blank Ribbon Case What this group is all about FAQ & Group Rules
