I was thinking of making fic prompt contests a monthly thing, but an art contest would be good, too. I'm not an artist, though, so I don't think I'm the right one to choose the medium/focus.
I could do it :D

I kinda like the comic panel idea.. since it levels the playing field. Anyone with an internet connection and MS Paint/GIMP/etc can do it.

What ya think?

What are you thinking of? We used to have the "Fun with out of context panels" thread. Recently resurrected as How I remember this scene... Is that what you had in mind?

that's exactly what I had in mind, since there's already an interest in it..

DP b/c it's been 24 hours.

If it doesn't step on your Toes, Wears, I would like to start the Fan Comic contest on Aug 1 and run it for 2-3 weeks, with a poll. Entrants would email me their entries and I would add them to the thread so they'll be anonymous.

Not quite sure what to put up as the prize, other than a custom title (to a non Mod).

Of course not. I don't own boards contests. Be cool to have some more. Badge or something would be cool. Our first contest was for nothing more than bragging rights. But, like I said, I can put my ebook codes up for a prize, too.

I'd leave the e-book codes up for the fan fic contests.

And I know you don't own the board contests, but I feel like I'm stepping on your toes. :) Just being silly, I guess.

Editted to add: I've posted the contest and made it global, in case you hadn't seen.

I did see. Nice. You may, however, want to edit the title to let people know that you don't have to be an artist to participate. I know I can't draw, so I probably wouldn't have opened the thread if we hadn't already been talking about it.

Hmm... well... I have one thing that I'll gladly give to a contest if one of you wants them for prizes... I got the PDF, codes for the two first Goblin e-books and the Hyper Halfling from the Kickstarter, but I already got the two first Goblin books... so I'd gladly give those codes up for a contest... :)

How about one where we take a single panel (maybe more if there are silent panels for filler) and people fill in what they are saying in an attempt to make it funny and or interesting.
