    Hello! It’s time for BYC’s 2nd Coloring Book Contest!

    As always, this BYC contest is brought to you by our sponsors. Please visit them and thank them for their support of BYC:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/LC-supplies.html

    We have a LOT of very creative and artistic peeps as members of BYC. We knew how successful our first contest was, so we decided to do another one! We hope this one will be just as fun for everyone! [​IMG]

    This contest will end on September 30th 11:59 EST unless decided otherwise by our Project Managers.

    As of now, you have less than a month to get your submissions in! Be sure to enter as soon as possible! Nobody wants to miss the chance to win a GFM!!!

    The 2nd Official BYC Chicken Coloring Book Contest!

    We want everyone to submit a line art drawing that we can add to a BYC Coloring Book that can be freely downloaded, printed, and colored. The drawing can be as simple or complex as you want it to be. We'll collect all the submissions and then we'll award some free GFMs as prizes!

    PRIZES: BYC will be donating a 12 month GFM to the first place winner and a 6 month GFM to the second place runner-up!

    To qualify for having your drawing entered into the book and the contest:

    1) You may only submit ONE drawing per person!
    2) The image needs to be black and white.
    3) The image should have clear lines (like most coloring book images)
    4) The image can be of anything related to BYC. Fancy or fun drawings of chickens, ducks, coops, etc. Have fun but keep them appropriate for all audiences.
    5) You must include the letters "BYC" or "BackYardChickens" into the image. If not in the drawing, then at least close to it. Also include some short text on the image... maybe a title, something about the drawing, your username, whatever.
    6) By submitting you art, you give BYC unlimited and perpetual rights and permission to use and distribute the work however we want
    7) You must scan your drawing for best picture quality.
    8) Upload your image using the BYC Image Upload Tool. Make sure your image is very good quality and size and when uploaded DESELECT the "resize" box. Please post your entry here for everyone to see!
    9) Also, don’t forget to sign your entry so you can get credit for your work!

    Make it your best. Your first entry will be your official entry!

    IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A SCANNER:

    1) Clean up the drawings and go over the art in pen for maximum contrast and clean lines
    2) Send them to someone with a great scanner, or take them to someone's house that has a great scanner.



    We plan to take about 10-15 entries and use them for the book.

    The project managers for this project are: ChickLover98, FireTigeris and zookeeper15133. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot one of us a PM. [​IMG]

    A great example of an image that was included in the first book is TUDY, our BYC mascot:

    We hope we get a lot of participation in this fun contest. If you know a BYC friend that has some artistic skills, send them a note and make sure they submit something! We can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!

    UPDATE: Here are our WONDERFUL entries so far. Don't forget to enter yours!

    Don't forget, our end date is September 30th! [​IMG] The drawings entered so far are OUTSTANDING! I can't wait to see what other amazing art we get submitted!

    Also: After our Project Managers select our top entries, that will go into the book, we will let the community vote, via poll, for the winners of the GFMs. [​IMG]

    Whoops, I must have overlooked that bit. I'm not sure overlooked is the right word though…
    Thanks tigeris!
