Upcoming Signature Contest - Please Read!

Okay, so I'm planning on running a signature contest very soon (thanks to Barker and Digimark suggesting it), and I'm doing things a bit differently than usual.

Normally, people enter, and we judge first, second, and third place in a few categories, as well as giving a theme.

Well, the idea for this (courtesy of Digimark) is to do tiered judging. Basically, I'm going to have two or three categories you can enter in - and you can only enter in ONE. The categories are skill-based - there'll be a beginner tier, for those who are new to Photoshop or sig-making, or feel they're not good enough to compete with some of the more skilled makers, and then an advanced tier, for those who have been doing this for a while and are confident in their skills. There might be an intermediate tier, depending on interest.

The reason I'm doing this as I think it will encourage more people to participate, and it gives people who are new to this a better chance of winning something and makes it seem so that there's actually a point to entering if you know you're not great. And it makes it more fun for all because it's more fair for the newbies, and it encourages those in the advanced tier to go all out.

Also, if you're not sure where you should compete, feel free to ask and we'll place you.

Digimark volunteered to help, and Tattoo said he'd judge if I was going to do a new contest soon, so I don't think I'll really need more judges but I'll see, depending on how many enter.

I'm not really planning on doing any sort of signup for this, though if anyone is interested or has any questions, please post or ask here!

Edit: The contest has started! All entries should be posted in the Official Entry Thread. Any entries posted here will not count! Be sure to read all of the rules in that thread before entering!

I have a question will the finals be taking the top sigs from all 2/3 tiers or will there be separate finals for different tiers?

This is a contest, not a tournament. Everyone can enter, and then the judges vote on who they think is the first, second, and third place of each tier. So there is no finals or anything.

Tournaments take place in the Sig Duel forum and we'll probably do one in a few months.

Sometimes we go with a theme, sometimes it's just open and you can do whatever you want. If there is a theme, it'll be announced in the main threads once I start it going.

No problem.

If you're interested, during the last contest Digimark collected all of the links from previous contests and tournaments.

They're not really set on any real schedule, but for a while we were swapping between contests and tournaments every six months, so it'd be a year between contests.

What if you divide by zero and don't enter?

Yet we can still have contests if we want.

stick out tongue

Anyway, can I volunteer to judge for this one? My PS is on the fritz (my entire PC is well under 100% these days, and it's stolen my PS's ability to run smoothly, or at all sometimes)...I'd have to use Gimp, and it's been years since I did that with any skill.

Also, spread the word.
