After months of mentioning it but never taking any action, us admins have decided to hold a contest. It will have three available categories to enter in, with a first, second and third place for each category. This leaves nine potential winners.


Contest Rules:

- In the description of your entry, please specify which category your piece is meant to enter in.
- No mature content
- Deadline is the twentieth of March, 2014. Due to only having one entry on March 15th, the deadline is now the thirtieth of April.  Entries will be judged from March twenty-first to March twenty-third.
- You may submit two entries; however, you may only win once.
- Submit your entry/entries to the contest entry folder: accurate-hetalia-ocs.deviantar…
- Anyone may enter (including non-members), so long as they are not one of the prize donors. If an admin wishes to enter, they may not enter for a category that they are judging.
- OCs must be by whoever is entering. You may not use another's OC as the main part of your entry; however, with permission from the OC's creator, you may include them in the entry as a side character. Or, if you are entering into the historical pairings category, they may be one of the two in the pairing.
- The piece must contain clear, obvious effort. Fan fiction must have proper grammar and spelling, and art cannot be sloppy.


Category One: Historical Pairings

Self-explanatory enough; illustrate or write a historical OC pairing. The work will be judged on the accuracy and portrayal of the pairing, mostly the latter.

Prizes:

First prize:
- 200 :points: (from fraubaguette)
- Colored chibi (from ms-regionnaire)
- Colored half-body, two characters (from fraubaguette)
- Full-body drawing (from Prateh-Kampuchea)
- Colored half-body, one character (from Melodic-Enigma)

Second prize:
- 100 :points: (from fraubaguette)
- Chibi lineart (from ms-regionnaire)
- Colored bust, one character (from fraubaguette)
- Colored headshot, one character (from Melodic-Enigma)

Third prize:
- 50 :points: (from fraubaguette)
- Bust (lineart), one character (from fraubaguette)
- Colored chibi, one character (from Melodic-Enigma)



Category Two: Cultural/Traditional Aspects

Illustrate (no writing for this category) a cultural or traditional aspect, celebration, et cetera of your OC. For example, draw them in a traditional dress, or dancing to a traditional dance; so on and so forth. The entries will be judged on whatever has been chosen to culturally or traditionally represent your OC, as well as portrayal of this aspect.

Prizes:

First prize:
- 200 :points: (from fraubaguette)
- Colored chibi (from ms-regionnaire)
- Colored half-body, one character (from fraubaguette)
- Full-body drawing (from Prateh-Kampuchea)
- Colored half-body, one character (from Melodic-Enigma)

Second prize:
- 100 :points: (from fraubaguette)
- Chibi lineart (from ms-regionnaire)
- Colored bust, one character (from fraubaguette)
- Colored headshot, one character (from Melodic-Enigma)

Third prize:
- 50 :points: (from fraubaguette)
- Bust (lineart), one character (from fraubaguette)
- Colored chibi, one character (from Melodic-Enigma)


Category Three: Historical Events

Illustrate or write an important historical event pertaining to your OC. If the event is too sensitive (for instance, drawing an Israel to the Holocaust), it will be disqualified.
The piece will be judged on accuracy and portrayal, mostly portrayal.

Prizes:

First prize:
- 200 :points: (from fraubaguette)
- Colored chibi (from ms-regionnaire)
- Colored half-body, one character (from fraubaguette)
- Full-body drawing (from Prateh-Kampuchea)
- Colored half-body, one character (from Melodic-Enigma)

Second prize:
- 100 :points: (from fraubaguette)
- Chibi lineart (from ms-regionnaire)
- Colored bust, one character (from fraubaguette)
- Colored headshot, one character (from Melodic-Enigma)

Third prize:
- 50 :points: (from fraubaguette)
- Bust (lineart), one character (from fraubaguette)
- Colored chibi, one character (from Melodic-Enigma)



Judging:

Each admin will choose which category they would like to judge; they may judge a maximum of two. There must be a minimum of three judges per category. Please comment with the category/categories you will be judging.

Admins judging category one:
- fraubaguette
- ms-regionnaire
- Melodic-Enigma

Admins judging category two:
- ms-regionnaire
- HellaMonetza
- Raspy-G

Admins judging category three:
- fraubaguette
- Raspy-G
- JoseCelada
- Melodic-Enigma


Prize donors:

We need volunteers to donate prizes for the contest, be it art or points. Please keep in mind that if you volunteer a prize, it will be for that place (first, second or third) for every category. You do not need to be an admin to be a prize donor, but you do need to be a member of the group.

List of prize donors:

- fraubaguette
- ms-regionnaire
- Prateh-Kampuchea


That is all. If you have any questions, please inquire one of the admins for further details.

I'll probably enter, but a question, for the second category can you use your OC along with other characters?

Of course, assuming they have something to do with the aspect you choose.

Well, this is for Hetalia OCs. It's not a "have the best OC" contest, but rather the most accurate entry. The main character in your entry must be your own OC, but of course you're allowed to include either others OC's or canon characters too if you'd like to do so. But the focus is on your own OC and how accurate he/she is. Description of the different categories is in the journal. 
It would be cool if you entered! There isn't that many as of now, and the more the better! u v u

just a thought but

maybe you should extend the contest a bit? That way you might be able to get more entries and stuff. And I'll advertise this journal again too -- I really wanna see more people join in, especially since the prizes are pretty neat and will take effort

fraubaguette Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2014
Hm, that would be a good idea, considering we only have one entry at the moment OTL
I'll push it back to the end of April, I think. Thank you for advertising, as well!

About category 1, the pairing can be platonic too, right?

Yep! Any kind of "pairing" is allowed; platonic, romantic, even enemies.

I don't understand the question. Are you asking the limit number for submissions? Because that is two, although only one may win.

No, I'm asking if I can feature more than one OC into feature. :iconjumpheplz:

Of course. If it's someone else's OC, though, you need their permission.

Do Fems! Count as OCs? Or just headcanons?
Reply
:iconfraubaguette:
fraubaguette Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2014
Hmm, I'm going to say that they do not count as OCs. We want people's legitimate OCs; headcanons still have a canon character that they're based on.

I'll join! But, a question, would something such as the French revolution be labelled as too sensitive? Or, what events would be a sensitive topic?
Reply
:iconfraubaguette:
fraubaguette Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2014
Hmm, I don't think so, no, unless you were to draw, say a character being beheaded. A sensitive topic would be one that people could easily take offense to; for instance, Nazi Germany.
