About


The dArt Showdown is a deviantART centered, team competition that will last the next number of weeks on deviantART. Hosted by TimberClipse and IceXDragon in conjunction with DevNews it is likely the first major team competition on deviantART with thousands of points and other prizes up for grabs! 

TimberClipse posted a few days ago suggestions for a project you would want to host, IceXDragon came up with the idea of a Art Showdown. The two members then worked together in order to present a new and great contest.

Prizes


The 4 members of the winning team will each receive:

Details


The dArt Showdown 2012 is actually quite simple. We are going to start the games by allowing teams of 4 deviants to "register" (details below). On May 10, (assuming we have at least 6 teams registered) we will begin the first round. Each round will have a theme that will be announced the day of by both TimberClipse and IceXDragon so make sure you are watching at least one of them ;)

During each round a team will have to submit artwork, this can be done jointly (such as through collaborations) or seperately (each group member submits one piece of art), teams are encouraged to make their own "internal" themes under the main theme (in other words, if the main theme was "Colors" the 4 team members could present their art in the colors of the rainbow to be viewed together).
There are multiple rounds. The breakdown is as follows
    May 13, 2012 All registered teams play - Top 5 teams chosen move on
    May 23, 2012 Top 5 teams play - Top 2 chosen teams move on
    June 3, 2012 Top 2 play - Top team is chosen and all members who participated receive their prizes. 
    June 13 Winners Announced

Each round will last 7 days. And in order to move on at least 1 piece of art must be presented. A team that does not submit any artwork will be automatically dismissed.

All teams that register will be featured when they are dismissed (either due to judging or failure to submit)

Registering


:new: Deadline to Register is May 12, 2012 at 5 PM PDT

You may register in two ways:

Individually
Send DevNews a note titled "REGISTER" and you will be randomly placed into a group.

Note: You will not be permitted to change groups once you are registered.
As a Group
Have 3 other friends who want to take part? You may register as a group and make a "powerhouse" if you'd like. Groups of friends that are above 4 people will be split into two separate groups.

Send DevNews a note titled "GROUP REGISTRATION" in which you list all participants and (optionally) a group name. Only 1 note is required, please do not have each member send a registration form.
Note: You will not be permitted to change groups once you are registered.

Rules


A more in depth rules packet will be sent out to teams that register, but generally we will accept all art forms that are not explicit.

Artwork must be new. Taken AFTER the release date of the theme.
All entries must relate to the weeks theme
Deadlines are always 11:59:59 PM PDT
Rules subject to change
Please link to this contest in the Artist Comments to ensure that your entry was intended for the contest.
Artistic ability and creativity will be judged.
All decisions by Judges are final



Judging

I have a question. If I got a team of three, and can't find a fourth, could you possibly team us three up with a random person, without separating us? :)
