Each artist can submit only five images per contest. Images are not to exceed 1024KB in size or 2048 pixels width or height.
Images must have the title and medium provided in order to be judged in the appropriate category.
Entries must be submitted by the original artist or photographer. You must be the sole owner of the copyright of the image you submit.
Images must be appropriate for public display. Obscene, pornographic, disturbing or otherwise inappropriate photos will be removed from the contest without warning. A Singular Creation has sole discretion as to what constitutes inappropriate content.
A participant can only have one image per contest in the final round. If a participant wins a Showdown, he/she may not use that same image for any subsequent Showdowns.
Other Terms and Conditions
All participating artists retain full copyrights of their images. A Singular Creation is merely a sponsor of these art contests and will not profit by them in any way. However, by submitting an image to an A Singular Creation contest, you give us the right to display the image anywhere within the A Singular Creation domain or for promotional purposes and to resize, convert and recompress the photo for viewing convenience and/or faster loading.
A Singular Creation reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel or suspend all or any portion of a contest without notice if factors beyond control, including technical difficulties, disrupt or corrupt the fair or secure administration or operation of the contest.
A Singular Creation is entitled to interpret the Rules as needed and its decisions are final.
The Rules are subject to change without notice. You are advised to familiarize yourself with the Rules every time you participate in an A Singular Creation contest.
Rules Regarding the Voting Process
Each visitor is allowed one vote per image. You can change your vote as often as you would like, but you only get one. Your last one counts. Please follow this rule. Sure, you can probably find a way around the one vote restriction, but please do not take advantage of it. We ask that you keep these contests to a high level and not compromise them by cheating extra votes.
Please do not down vote. Do not intentionally give another image a low score so that your image, or one that you are in favor of, scores higher. Be honest when rating images so that the integrity of the contest is upheld. If we feel that down voting is occurring, we will suspend the popular vote portion of judging.
