1st Place
Fun and effort* are important. Winners will be decided on how fun I think the hat will be to make or How popular I think it will be.
*This is an "advertisement" as well as an Design contest, ie. if you can't draw but make a huge effort at advertising(groups journals etc) this will be appreciated.
Random Draw
We will pull a winner randomly from all valid entries.
You can try to stuff the ballot box as much as you want as long as your entries are of quality and follow our rules. No copypasta, no MS Paint quality etc.
If someone commissions me to make your design for them at any point during the contest you automatically get a copy of your hat as well.
Hat commissions follow the pricing scheme here: [link] and they must still pay for a quote. Your hat must follow contest rules in order to be commisionnable
