    Ya, the last one was a lot of fun (but also a lot of work since we had to rescan and cleanup a bunch of them). Maybe this time we can have better rules and requirements. Anybody have ideas and suggestions on ways to ensure we get quality images / scans?

    "If they aren't quality, then you get disqualified" (and show examples of each)?

    We only use computers not actual media and e-mail, or send to the board the picture?

    So it be a tech-coloring contest.


    OR- or "submission will be judged exactly as it appears, sorry no exceptions... we recommend you read "how to scan an image for best quality" (Example link)"

    I would definately help out with another coloring book contest! I now know how to use a scanner and upload scanned pictures. I can also help sort the drawings into "acceptable" and "unacceptable." [​IMG]

    Ok, I think we should do it! This time, I'd like to have 2-3 "project managers" in charge of this. Your jobs will be to help setup, run, manage, and judge/award the contest!

    Shoot me a PM if you're interested and what you'd like to do and why you'd be a good Coloring Book Project Manager!

    As soon as we have qualified people to help run things we'll get closer to starting it.

    FINE I'll volunteer, but that totally ruins my plans to make a coloring page on butchering chickens (the kids would have loved it).
