(Please be sure to remove the space before and after the @ sign)

YOU MUST:

2. Add your image in .jpg format to the thread.

4. Submit no more then 2 images to any one challenge.
5. Include the following information in your posts:

----Software Used to Create the Image.

6. Follow the DAZ Terms of Service. No nudity, violence or profanity will be allowed.
7. Please post images created specifically for this challenge and not previously available for public viewing.

Clarification of Rule #7 (Updated to help clarify on 04/05/16)
You Cannot enter the image (even with modifications) in the New User Challenge and another Contest or Challenge. The image MUST be created NEW specifically for the New User Challenge. If you have any questions, please contact [email protected] before entering your image.

Any artwork found to violate the above rules of the challenge will be pulled and that member notified by PM in an attempt to give the entrant time to fix any infractions and let them resubmit.


YOU MAY:
1. Make revisions as well as get feedback and comments within the thread. Doing so will not only get you help and advice but will also make you eligible for various prizes we may award.
2. Use any 3D program you choose to create your image.
3. Post-work your image. Please keep within the spirit of the contest though. (Example: If a contest is on lighting, please experiment with the lighting within your application of choice rather then applying lighting effects within your 2D Applications)

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
1. This challenge is open to individuals only. Groups are not allowed. DAZ3D Published Artists and members of their immediate families are not eligible to enter. Void where prohibited.
2. If you are selected for a prize in the contest, you agree that the New User Contest Organizers may publicize your community name and the artwork you submitted to the Challenge Thread. Apart from the prizes associated with your image being selected for a prize, the New User Challenge organizers shall not be obligated to compensate you in any way for such publicity.
3. Each entrant shall indemnify, defend, and hold the New User Contest Organizers and DAZ3D harmless from any third party claims arising from or related to that entrant's participation in the challenge. In no event shall the New User Challenge organizers or DAZ3D be liable for acts or omissions arising out of or related to the challenge or to an entrant's participation in the challenge.
4. All taxes, including income taxes, are the sole responsibility of winners.
5. No prize substitution is permitted.
6. Winner(s) may be required to verify their entry.


Note: All images entered in the challenge are copyrighted and owned by the artist.

JUDGING:
Throughout the month, Community Volunteers will select artwork or participants to win various prizes. What the prize is for, how many their are, and how much the prize is will vary from month to month and is more of a participation prize. We will be looking for those who best exemplify the goals of that perticular contest, show the most improvement, etc.
