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!

Is this only for art, or would literature be accepted too?

Hi there I was wondering, if I posted the artwork and it was accepted and all and then till the deadline I make some changes on it, can I update the deviation, before the judging happens ?
