Hi, I'm just curious because this is my first partecipation in a contest, and I don't know exactly how it works.
My question is about how/who decides the winners, which usually is the process used for the votations?

Hey there!

Thanks for your inquiry- you asked some good questions.

Once we hit the deadline, the admins in our group will decide the winners. 

I, personally, have judged several contests and there are many ways to fairly decide a winner.  I will be asking all admins in our group for their opinions and we will collectively decide who our winners will be.  I want to make it as fair as possible- meaning that who made the deviation will be irrelevant- we will judge on the art itself, it's quality, how to applies to our theme and creativity.

I must say that this may take a few weeks before a decision is made.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to reply or you are welcome to send me a note.

Have a great night!

I'm sorry, but probably I won't be able to post my work, which is a sequel of a story I wrote. I'm sorry. :(

Is an updated version of an old deviation allowed.
I have a poem that I wrote a while ago but am I allowed to submit an updated version that is half old and half new?

sure can!  We need you to mention that your deviation was made for the Nightmare Contest in :icondeviantsgallery: 

You can do this in the comment section.

So you mean that I have to say ""Lady of the dark" for Nightmare contest" in the comment section in the link you provided above?

prettyflour Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh!  If you'd like an example, take a look in our group's gallery, and then in the Nightmare Contest folder- you can look at the comments in the other entries to see what I mean.

Okay, I think I got it. So do I have to re-submit the artwork again or you can now add it to the folder?

Coltemonison Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2014
I did, but it was stopped half way because I didn't put mention the Nightmare Contest in the comment section, which I did. So do I have to re-submit it?

Not in the comment section of our group, but the comment section of YOUR deviation.  Does that makes sense?

Would Fan-Fictions be okay, or is that a no-no? Because if it is, I have no problem writing something with original characters.

:iconprettyflour:
prettyflour Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Fanfiction would be fine as long as you credit the creator of the original.

5/1 is the first of May? Can't be the fifth of January, I guess... I can recall a nightmare or two, but nothing easy to illustrate. Maybe I'll have a good simply nightmare soon :)
