    Tempmas Week 1
    [​IMG]
    No idea who these dudes are



    What?! Tempmas is evolving!
    Now that you all know what Tempmas is, let's get down to the meat and potatoes of this thing. This week of Tempmas you will submit your design for a Holiday themed Pokemon. Not just the art. A full Pokedex entry. That means name, height, weight and a small description. Evolutions are encouraged, but they will be rejected if a full pokedex entry isn't included with it, and only your base pokemon will be judged. Only one entry will win this competition.

    Rules
    1. All art and descriptions must be completely original. This means it cannot be based on current Pokemon, or art created by someone else. And certainly not a copy+paste job from deviantart or some other site.
    2. Only one entry per person. You may submit an additional 2 evolutions of your original pokemon.
    3. Your pokemon MUST be holiday themed. That means Winter Solstice based holidays. No one wants to see an Easter themed pokemon. Seriously.
    4. Your entry must be posted in this thread. Any entries sent via PM will be ignored.
    5. Not really a rule, more of a clarification. All entries will be judged on the art, the description AND the originality of the pokemon.
    PRIZES!

    Tempmas has been brought to you in part, proudly by:

    Oh you didn't think I forgot about the prizes did you? Ol' Saint Tempy has reached into his bag 'o' goodies, and has pulled out an R4i Gold (r4ids.cn). What's that? Oh there's something a little different here, too! You like jewelry? You need a gift for that special someone? Perhaps you didn't know what to get Mom? Well, here you go! We have a Gold Plated Enamel Mustache Double Finger Ring (Black) and a Rhinestone Skull Wing Pendant Necklace.

    Well, that's it! You know what to do! I'll announce the winner on Sunday Monday! The deadline for the contest is Sunday the 9th, 11:59PM PST.

    Is this year like all the other Tempmas contests? Like where you can win in multiple weeks?

    That's this week. The prizes for each week will be revealed on those weeks.


    Yes, Tempmas will go on for 4 weeks.

    I mean I gathered that much. What I was asking is if you could win multiple first prizes like someone did last year. If for some reason I win 1st prize here and you guys have a story contest next week, would I still be eligible to win that fist prize as well? I really want to enter this week, but at the same time I'd like to be able to show off in the written category that usually crops up. :/

    Can you please read the thread in it's entirety? Both questions you have asked are covered in the OP, but to answer your question, you post it here, in this thread.

    And yes, it's possible to win prizes for multiple weeks, but the fact that you have won a prize previously in this Tempmas will also be considered when making a judgement. For example, if there is a writing contest, and both yours and someone elses story is very close in quality, I will choose the person that did not win a prize yet.
