2012 Artist and Vidder Sign-Up Post
Challenge rules for Artists and Vidders:
1. You agree to create at least one piece of art or one vid for a Pros Big Bang story.
2. Collaborations between artists are also allowed. Just let us know when you sign up if you are planning on working with a partner.
3. The art may be an original illustration, title banner, photo manip., or whatever else strikes your fancy. The vid may be a reflection of the story or a teaser to entice people to read. Have fun with your project!
4. You’re free to create what you will for the art or vid, but we suggest that you consult with your writer before doing anything too explicit.
5. On your assigned date in October, you will make a master post for your artwork on Archive Of Our Own (invitation codes available from the mods, if needed), your personal LJ, Dreamwidth account or another site of your choice. You will then provide a link to the writer you are collaborating with who will add it to the story’s master post at ci5_boxoftricks. Please do not post your artwork anywhere prior to your assigned posting date.
6. If you feel you have the energy and willpower to create artwork for someone else’s story, as well as writing your own, then please feel free to sign up as both an artist and as a writer.
Sign ups open February lst and close May 30th.
On July 9th, a list of story summaries will be posted anonymously. You will claim the story that interests you on a first come, first served basis. Once you have successfully claimed a story, we’ll give you the author’s contact information and the rough draft/outline of their story from which to work.
The due date for your artwork/vid is September 23rd. Your work should not be posted on a public forum at this time, but you must provide us with either a working link to the art or vid, or the art or vid file itself.
An assigned, staggered posting schedule will happen in October.
