Well, the art comp is more or less ready; Takeo wrote out a great judging criteria.

But this is a month long and starts next week - best I could hope to do is squeeze the art comp in this weekend and have the signups between now and then.

I am still in agreement with Tarq. How would this "anything is acceptable" competition be judged?

Is it all judged together, or in separate categories? How do we find a definitive winner if one persons draws a picture and another makes a game?

 

I like the idea, but it seems rather bizarre to make a contest on.

 

 

@Tarq: As much as I understand the month contest's "interference", I wouldn't suggest rushing that one. Since it's new, having a sudden sign up and contest would be a bad start.

Maybe running it during the third week of this contest would be appropriate? It gives time between, and who knows,maybe some artists will join to take a break from the months worth of artwork~

The judging will be awkward and kinda based on how much effort we think you've put into something.
And that shouldn't be the important part anyway, the prizes are an incentive for you to do something. The real prize is that you get something done.

Will add the new people and hopefully elaborate more when I'm home.

"External/freely available resources MAY NOT be used."

 

Does freely available music count in this as well?

:excl: Rule change!
 
I've decided to change the rule regarding Default Assets to now include any engine. External resources are still prohibited.
 

Regarding resources used: (IMPORTANT!)
Everything submitted must be your original work owned by you. 
With the exception of an engine's RTP/Default Assests (Including premade scripts that COME WITH then engine. Nothing external.), all resources used in your creation must be made by you and within the time limit. With regards to images this doesn't include techniques/brushes/whatever, as long as you don't copy/paste from your old work.
External/freely available resources MAY NOT be used.

 
 

All contestants so far have been signed up.

Music counts as a resource too, yes.

My only worry would be how you weigh all the different things against each other as a judge... It's gonna be tough for them... but! I'll go ahead and sign up as a contestant!

I don't think there's enough contestants for that.

I'm talking like upwards of 2 for each category, and maybe have people declare which category they're signing up for.

Categories wouldn't really work.

 

Say, 1 person enters game making and 2 people draw an image. Game dev would immediately win by default, but art would have to be judged.

And at the end of the contest all categories still need to be judged together to get a final winner since I doubt Jackus has enough prizes for several different category winners.

 

Categories are fine if you do a single category each contest, but doing alot at once with a handful of people wouldn't work out to well.

 

Still not fond of the "we'll see who put more effort in and make our vote that way" since it's kinda judging a book by it's cover (say two people make a game. Ones good and tiles, another isn't as good. That second artist is gonna work harder to make there tiles good, but since the final result is about what looks best because that has the most "effort to make it look good" the second artist doesn't get a fair chance.

I will however leave it with the judges decision. I could be wrong and it all works out.

I'll decide how to do the judging when I see what everyone has made.

If you all make games, I'll just use IIAW style judging, but if you don't then I'll think of something else.

I'll also do everything I can to make it as fair as possible.

I do trust your opinion, just so I'm clear~ That response was more in general than blaming you or anything :P

 

I hope more entries pop in instead of just games. I understand it's a game forum, but c'mon guys~ We need variety! xD

But the person/piece which is better is supposed to win a competition. My concern with an 'effort vote' is the opposite of yours; that well-made works are undervalued against worse works full of good intentions.

 

I don't really care about a few Steam keys (lel, some are my donations) but I do think some attempt at objectivity is a big deal for a competition and effort is very subjective; both the judge's perception of it as well as the participant's definition of it. A competition judged on effort seems like it will leave a lot of salt.
