Blotting the Parchment

Artists are the people that no matter what, pick up the pen, pick up a paintbrush. They take the time to translate what is happening to create something that resonates deeply with the rest of the people that are caught in the middle of their own reality. - Anna Deavere Smith

Hello, Magenta here! I have some exciting news for you! After months of planning and secret excitement amongst myself and the Arts & Graphics staff, we are thrilled to be able to finally present the new Arts & Graphics Incentive Program! We want to reward you with something that you can proudly display in your trophy case that represents all of your creative endeavors. I've carved up a brand spankin' new item for you - the Enchanted Paintbrush!

Each month, you'll have a number of opportunities to participate in various activities in the Arts & Graphics Forum. By participating in these activities and claiming them in our participation thread, you can earn yourself ink spots. Each ink spot counts as a ticket towards the monthly release of one of these Enchanted Paintbrushes. At the end of each month, we will let the randomizer decide who will be the lucky recipient of our prize, after which the ink spots totals will be reset, and everyone gets a new chance to be among the winners. So go forth, collect some ink spots, and start Blotting the Parchment!

Criteria

The reward is clear, the way in which winners will be decided is clear, but how do you earn these messy little ink spots? Below we have outlined which activities can earn you ink spots and how many you can earn per month.

Activity Requirements Ink Spots Notes
Monthly Challenges Enter a monthly challenge (writing and/or graphics). 1 spot per challenge
(maximum of 2 spots per month)
Ink spots awarded by A&G team
Fan Favorite Be voted Fan Favorite in one a monthly challenge. 1 spot per challenge
(maximum of 2 spots per month)
Ink spots awarded by A&G team
Weekly Prompts* Participate in a weekly prompt, either in portfolio thread or prompts thread. 1 spot per prompt
(maximum of 4 spots per month)
Users must claim ink spots
Artwork of the Month Nomination Nominate a user for AotM.
- Users must include a reason or explanation (minimum of one/two sentences) for their nomination. Nominations with just a name will not receive an ink spot.

Comment in three (3) portfolios.
- Comments must consist of at least 3 sentences; 1 spot per 3 comments
(maximum of 1 spot per month).
Users must claim ink spots

Important: Tickets earned by participating in our weekly prompts and commenting on portfolios will be awarded upon claiming them in the aforementioned participation thread - if you do not post in this thread, we, unfortunately, are not able to award the corresponding ink spots. Please use the instructions listed in that thread to collect your ink spots.*

Each raffle period will last the entirety of each month, so you have the full month to participate in these activities (keep the deadlines in mind! The monthly challenges will still end on the 24th of each month). The Enchanted Paintbrush can only be won once every twelve months, meaning that if you win the item in September 2018, you are not eligible to win it again until September 2019.

If you have any questions regarding the Arts & Graphics Incentive Program, please post in this thread or owl any member of the A&G moderating team. Now that we've covered just about everything, the only thing left for us to do is to wish you all luck and inspiration as you go forth and create!

September 2018 Raffle

  • Enchanted Paintbrush
  • 2,000 House Points
  • 1,000 House Points

Each month, you have a chance at winning an Enchanted Paintbrush or House Points! Exciting, right? Please keep in mind that you are only eligible for one prize per drawing, so if you win HP during the month of September, you can't win the Paintbrush during the same month and vice versa.

Go forth and create! Keep an eye out - any activity where you see a paint splatter at the end of the post, it means that it is eligible for this incentive! Keep your eyes peeled - we may be adding more eligible activities in the future.


Congratulations to November 2018's winner of the Enchanted Paintbrush:
EFFIE319!

My Hungry Hungry TC is licking its lips over that new Enchanted Paintbrush. I guess I'm going to have to suck it up and finally learn how to use my computer graphics programs. LOL

Very nice new item. Thanks for getting it for us.
