10. I do not require the image or film to be brand new as long as it fits the theme and is not currently entered in any other Elftown contests.

11. The film parody may be with live actors or animated. 

12. Rules subject to change without notice.


HOW TO POST YOUR ENTRY AND SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:

1. Photos I would rather all images be uploaded to Elftown. Inlined photos sometimes don't show for everyone and it may cause trouble during the final voting period. If you are unsure how this is done, please message [Lothuriel] privately.

Photo entries must be posted with the following information.
-What TV or Film character is being depicted.
-The title of the Show or Film that is being represented.
-Where the photo was taken.
-The names of all individuals in the photo.
-Date the photo was taken

2. FILM I understand that video can not be uploaded or inlined to Elftown. Therefore, you are required to upload the film to a place such as www.youtube.com or www.photobucket.com then place the link in the contest entry wiki. There is no particular place you are required to upload the film as long as it can be viewed by the general public.

If the film is too long to upload all at once, you are welcome to upload it into parts and link them back to Elftown as My Film: Part 1, My Film: Part 2, and so on. 

The films must be in English or subtitled in English. If the movie or television show is not American or popular worldwide, please provide a link to a website about it.

Film entries must be posted with the following information.
-What TV or Film character you are depicting.
-The title of the Show or Film that is being represented.
-A brief description of your fan film or parody.
-The names of all individuals in the film and which part they played.
-The credits for script, casting, editing, etc.

3. Movie Posters For this category, quality will be an issue. If you are unsure of the quality of your entry, please ask before you enter. Any artistic medium is acceptable. I would rather all images be uploaded to Elftown. Inlined photos sometimes don't show for everyone and it may cause trouble during the final voting period. If you are unsure how this is done, please message [Lothuriel] privately.

-The entry must look like a movie poster. In other words, you can't simply draw a picture and say, this is a movie poster. 
-Fan Art or direct copies are not allowed. All elements used in photo manipulations must be your own. 
-The movie poster must be of an original creation! Just as the film entries, the movie poster category is for parodies. 
-A brief description is needed to explain of what movie the parody is. 

Deadline: 10 Entrants per category 

Judging and Prizes: Juding for both categories of this contest will be done in 2 ways. Judges from outside of Elftown will pick a set number of favorites. Those favorites will then be placed in a public poll.

For now, the awards will be special badges made specifically for this contest. Other prizes may be offered at a later date.

2007-06-28 [Lothuriel]: Gotta have props!

2007-06-28 [Kyrinn]: Workin' on it.. lol

2007-06-28 [playslashwrite]: moira, grab a towel and dry the angst-sweat already XD

I already said I'll take time to think about what I'm gonna do because the deadline is so far off; I'm not the kind of person to quickly enter two things I already made just to get a head start, even though I do not HAVE TO make something entirely new..

2007-06-28 [playslashwrite]: i take your compliments with a thanks, but you can stop the butt kissing now:p

2007-06-28 [playslashwrite]: i take your compliments with a thanks, but you can stop the butt kissing now; I'm getting soggy :p

2007-06-28 [moira hawthorne]: but! you have a cute ass... *runs before Im beaten by [Saray]*

2007-06-28 [playslashwrite]: you scare me now..

2007-06-28 [moira hawthorne]: really? <img:stuff/aodh%20chibi%20blush.png>
Im not scarey.... just sleep deprived... <img:stuff/aodh%20chibi%20zzz.png>

2007-06-28 [playslashwrite]: that's what scares me..

2007-06-28 [moira hawthorne]: what? that I dont sleep...???

2007-06-28 [playslashwrite]: that sleep deprivation stimulates your mind into fantasies about my butt!

2007-06-29 [moira hawthorne]: ooooooooooo well not just your butt... but I see your point.. humhumhum... tho your dont dispute the point that your butt is worthy of fantasy?

2007-06-29 [playslashwrite]: i think it is waaaay, waaaaaaaaaay past your bed time..

2007-06-29 [moira hawthorne]: I showed hubby your photos of Indy... and he agrees with me... well maybe not on the butt bit... and ofcourse its way past my bedtime... but when is my bed time is another matter interiorly...

2008-03-28 [Eglagrodion]: hmm i dont really get it what this contest is about :S

2008-03-28 [Lothuriel]: It helps to know how to read sometimes...

2008-05-18 [Synsae]: so let me see if I get this contest straight... the objective of this contest is to make a movie poster... take a picture... or make a film... of or about a character in a movie or tv show? such as Daniel Jackson from Stargate, Capt. Jack Sparrow from PoTC, Rick or Evie O'Connell from the mummy series, Princess Leia from Star Wars, or etc... ?

2008-05-19 [Lothuriel]: Yes, you choose a popular film or television show and create your own version of it by film or photography. Here is a good example of the movie poster category made by [playslashwrite].

2009-03-16 [Cillamoon]: Question....does the picture we are referencing from have to be from a movie per say? Or can it be from a photoshoot?

2009-03-17 [Lothuriel]: I am not sure what you are asking hon? 

You may use stock photos, as long as you have permission. The goal is to make it look similar to a popular movie poster; to make a parody poster, like the example above.

2009-03-17 [Cillamoon]: Damn, well then I will keep trying. Thank you Lothuriel! You answered my question without even truly knowing what I was asking. I was understanding the contest to be characters, not the actual movie poster. Thank you for explaining it to me! :)
