 🌹 🌹 🌹 Judging-guidelines

I try to explain everything as detailed as possible beforehand, to make it as fair as possible! 🙂

These are only guidelines, don´t take them too seriously! Enjoy making your art, that will show in all of those categories and gives you a great advantage! These guidelines are there to help understand the judging system 😀

Total possible points in this category: 1-100 points

Every entry will be judged by these general points + the points for their art category

🌺 Presentation/composition: 1-10 points

- How you present your whole work: composition (also for photos and models), quality of your entry (no blurred photo)

🌺 Originality/creativity: 1-25 points

- accuracy of the horse/horses you chose (attention to the little details of the coat color), accurate body build is not necessary, but would be cool!

Oh yes! I hadn't thought of that yet, but you could make a background and put one of our WHV horses in there 😍😊💕

I've just joined this game yesterday so I don't know exactly how things work just yet, but are there certain dimensions for the art?

@Luminous I am not sure what you mean with "dimensions", but if you ask about  the size of the drawing/painting, it's completely up to you 😄💕 This contest is very open and all art forms are allowed, so also tiny drawings or really big ones 😊🌷

 

 

I am very excited to see all of your entries 😍

@WildHearted 

A site to make art or upload your art?

For uploading art:

I would recommend Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or Deviantart 😊💕

There are also some websites where you can upload art, but I don't know them very well. Like "Imgur" for example 😄
