Countdown to August Color Contest

Countdown ended
Sunday, August 31st @ 11:59pm

The August "Lost in the Forest" Color Contest has ended. See the Color-Me-Club journal for details on voting!

August Color Contest - You Get Three Votes!

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 1, 2014, 8:53 PM

The August "Lost in the Forest" Color Contest is almost done.  All we need now is for you all to jump in and throw us some votes!  You get three votes this time around.

You can check out August's entries…

If you have an entry ready, but do not see it listed above in the corresponding [link], send a note directly to LilForgottenAngel with a [link] to your contest entry to ensure it gets placed in the running!

To vote, send a note to the color-me-club.  Title the note 'Vote _____, _____, _____' and instead of the blanks, write the names of the artists whose work you are voting for.  Remember to put your votes in the note's title, not in the body.  We just read the title of the note.

You do not have to cast three votes.  You can vote for any number of entries, just as long as it doesn't exceed three votes.  Any voters who cast more than three votes will not be counted.

Normal rules apply:
Do not pander for votes (beg for votes in your journal, image description, etc.)
You may vote for your own entry
Do not use multiple accounts to vote
You may not vote for the same artist multiple times


The note phase of voting ends August 5th.  The poll will be posted between September 6th and 7th, which will determine the winner.

YOur Mature Content folder needs more nude males. Seriously. More "yaoi" works too.  There is a huge discrepency between the nude females/"yuri" works and the nude male/"yaoi" works in number and in explicitness.

A question: If you send a note with your submission for the contest, will you get some sort of answer to know that it has been delivered properly?
