  1. You'll go to the gallery link and submit under the category you're entering. It is only 1 photo per entry, but you can do a collage/composite shot of multiple angles!
  2. As a quick update: We have an influx of entries that consist of multiple photos. I will be reaching out individually to ask that those who have submitted multiple photos of 1 entry and asking for a collage photo to be entered. For those who have not submitted yet, remember that it's only one (1) photo per entry. Collages are fine, even if they end up large. And remember, if you have any questions about your entry, feel free to ask!
  3. Collage photos are allowed so you can indeed use multiple angles! And if you need help, reach out and I'll try my best to help!

  13. “Help me, I’m flaming. I must be a hundred and nine.” -Elvis Presley The temperature’s rising at Wyrd HQ, and even Waldo’s feeling it. He keeps asking for a Slip ‘n Slide to be installed in the warehouse. Now that I think of it that would make travel from one side to the other much quicker… Maybe he’s onto something this time. To help us beat the heat, we’re doing another Painting Contest! The theme for this one is “Hot, Hot, Hot!” Glowing hot weapons, scorching deserts, flames that spread like wildfire… we want to see it all! Miniatures can be submitted any time during the contest, though none will be showcased until the day voting begins. Submissions will be accepted from now until 11:59 pm EST (UTC -5) on July 28th, 2021. We encourage you to submit your entries early as no submission will be accepted after the cutoff, no exceptions. If you need to make any changes to your upload by July 28th 11:59 pm EST (UTC -5) please contact @Hobby Wyrd via PM on the Wyrd forum. Entries are to be submitted HERE. All entries must fit the theme. As this has a broad theme, below serves as a list of examples but is not meant to be exhaustive: Incorporate fire as a focus for the submission (such as a flame elemental, mage with fire, etc.) Depict climates/environments of extreme heat Heated metal, flaming weapons, fireballs, etc. Basically, if it would make the infamous Anasalea Kaeris’ eyes light up, go for it! As always, if you’re in doubt, you can reach out to @Hobby Wyrd for clarification. We have two (2) categories for this contest- Single Model and Diorama/Vignette. Participants may submit one (1) entry per category. Please note that our criteria for Singles and Diorama have changed. They are as follows: Singles: A single model on a base of appropriate scale or on a plinth of similar size. The single model should make up the majority of the submission and be the focus of the piece, not any additional accessories or details attached to the base. If the base is the main focus of the submission, then the submission belongs in the Diorama/Vignette category. Diorama/Vignette: This category is focused on storytelling through the use of miniatures and basing. For the purposes of Wyrd Painting Competitions, the submission uses one (1) or more figures in additional to other materials. The emphasis is on the entire piece and the scene/story being presented. Make sure to take some time to familiarize yourself with our general competition rules found HERE. NOTE: Prior to the start of voting, our contest staff reserve the right to move a submission into another category that fits more appropriately. If this occurs, affected participants will be notified via forum PM. Prizes - Each category will have the following prizes: 1st Place: $75 in Wyrd webstore credit 2nd Place: $50 in Wyrd webstore credit 3rd Place: $25 in Wyrd webstore credit Best of Awards - The Wyrd Staff will take a look at all the categories and vote to determine the winner for each of the following: Best of Hot, Hot, Hot!: $100 USD cash prize (via PayPal) - Voted on by Wyrd Staff Best of Wyrd Miniature Entry: One (1) Nightmare Box of winner's choice (from a list of available Nightmare sets) - Voted on by Wyrd Staff Voting Due to unsportsmanlike behavior in the past, I need to reiterate that the votes need to come from active forum members. We will be post restricting the polls, so only active accounts with a minimum of ten (10) posts (not all in the same day) will be able to vote.
