Art Contest Question

A player has brought up a very good question. Is a player allowed to submit more than one artwork for the art contest?

I think we should keep things simple for now and not complicate this contest with too many rules. I’ve tried to keep things as easy and simple. So, the answer is yes, you may submit more than one artwork for the contest. And remember that, after the artworks are submitted, artist names will be withheld from judges, to prevent any kind of bias.

That being said, do not assume that sending a torrent of artworks will help you. However, you are free to submit as many as you like.

SoMD Pokémon Art Contest Rule Clarification

So, someone asked me to provide a rules clarification for the art contest and I thank him for his very relevant question!

So, rule #2 states: Do not submit artworks that are not Pokémon-related. All artworks must contain some Pokémon monster, character, item, game, location, or event. If you have any doubts, ask!

He asked me if he could use art he made of characters he thought of himself. In some circles, this is referred to as “fakemon”. This deviates from the intent of contest, so I changed clarified the rule:

Do not submit artworks that are not Pokémon-related. All artworks must contain some already-existing Pokémon monster, character, item, game, location, or event. If you have any doubts, ask!
