Just in time for Summer enterVOID.com presents a brand spanking new event that has been cooking for over a year. Seasoned with a range of new challenges for our thrill happy members....this one has more than a few twists to tickle even the more jaded palette.



Short and Sweet
*Original Concept by Puzzlething
A Battle Royale Style Artist Match with a Super Ultra Secret Mystery Theme.



Sounds fancy sure....but what the hell does all that actually mean?!

All Artists taking part will be required to submit an original comic WITHOUT the use of any VOID characters......and the comic must reflect the Secret T.B.A. Theme....with those exceptions the characters, setting, genre and plot are completely up to the individual artists.

What?!....I can`t use my character?........ OK.....that's certainly new…..but…well….ummm

What.....not `sweet enough`

not really...no...bit iffy about not using my character

..it is also going to be open to any member that wants to take part

Really!?

 Anyone that is already an enterVOID.com Artist.......Yup….there will be no maximum number of entrants or selection process…if you feel you can handle it and wanna do it; then sign up and you are in....even VOID Artists that have been accepted but haven't had their first match can join!

But that would mean this might get pretty big.....OK that is pretty sweet....so wait a minute!...... what's so 'Short'  about it then?

I'm glad you asked.....in addition to taking place in only one round the Artists will be restricted as to the page count of their comics...a maximum of 5 pages.

What!!????....that's crazy

Well the emphasis there is to show people that bigger is not always better.....better is better and it can be done in smaller comics with a greater focus on quality



Details:
* Artist Sign Up ends August 3
* Artist Line Up and Ultra Secret Theme will be announced together on August 4th
*  There will be a 4 week deadline starting on August 4th and ending September 1st with one week of Voting immediately following
* Comic MUST represent Announced Theme and MAY NOT contain the depiction of any official VOID character including but not limited to those characters owned by the artist or his competitors.
* 3 page minimum and 5 page maximum. There will be NO page stacking, doubling up or giant pages allowed.....no silly buggers here.....stick to standard page sizes.
*Theme has been pre-selected by Council and will not be released to anyone until the aforementioned date.
* Not meeting requirements will result in automatic disqualification from Tourney for the Artist as well as the chance to be shamed by all of their peers. These lowlifes will also quite possibly develop an annoying rash in various embarrassing locations about their person.

YOUR COMIC WILL NOT BE POSTED OR OTHERWISE CONSIDERED A DEFAULT IF YOU DO NOT MEET ALL REQUIREMENTS OR ATTMEPT OTHERWISE

This event has been designed to challenge and educate those that choose to take part....engaging them in somthing new and forcing them to restrict themselves and focus on the creation of a fully realized and finished comic within the alotted time and page count and in accordance to a particular theme.....as would be expected in real life by any number of publications and editors.

Although this event will be open to everyone that wishes to take part it will be very challenging for all involved…..so take it seriously and consider your current situation and abilities before entering….remember performance affects your chances to get into other events.....and nobody likes a default or half finished work.

This event will also be a challenge to our other members when it comes time to vote...it will be somthing new and different and the content and format will require even more serious thought and critique than is normally required….especially if there is a large turn out...so I hope you will make an effort.



The Winner will have the Title of `Short and Sweet 2014`  added to his/her character profile on the Main Site as well as the self satisfaction of knowing that he/she has beaten the pants off of everyone else....neener neener neener.

Looks like fun, I guess I'll quit lurking in the shadows and actually do something here. Count me in!

I'm so in.  I really gotta work on tightening up my short comics and making sure everything translates well in that space.  Awesome event idea!

I should be finishing up on my current battle with Squidney, and I really need challenges like this right now. So I'll throw in... tentatively though. If things happen between now and before the 3rd, I might pull out. But right now, everything looks peachy. X3

No Ben. You are automatically IN. Because we like you!!

Speaking of which, I need practice making short stories that are actually meant to be short, so:

There is no selection process or maximum number of slots/Artists.........Anyone who is already a VOID Artist can join...Old Members and New Members.....Artists that have killed off all their characters..... Artists who have been very bad and need to redeem themselves or Artists who have joined and haven't had a match yet.......even lurkers can join if they manage to get off their butts and get approved as an Artist in time to sign up....it is the most inclusive event we have had in a VERY long time.

Okie-dokie. Let me get this straight. Anyone and their mother can join, and in commenting their Void account page bellow will be automatically accepted? The theme is T.B.A. (to be announced) and we cannot portray any current Void approved characters of either our own creation or another members? All characters, plot, and ect. will be up to us to create once we've learned this competitions main theme... Do I have that pretty well understood? 8/

you aren't the only one....but you are the only one to be aware of it so far

if you don't already know....just open a new tab in your browser when you click on your name to open your profile page and the web address(which should have your VOID ID number at the end) is what is required here
