Ok guys here is an update on the contest
everything that has been previously stated below is staying the same. But there has been some concern on stock. so here is what we're going to do.
The use of stock will be allowed however, you must credit the original creators in your post otherwise the submission will not be accepted. And please don't just use someone's stock images and apply a filter or two and call it your own. If we see this happening you will be disqualified from the contest and your submission will be removed. If anyone has any other questions or concerns please reply to this blog or, comment on the group page. Don't keep sending the staff members in the VC group notes asking about details. That's what this blog is for
Also the Contest folder is open for submissions now. The contest doesn't officially start until October 1st (ends October 15th) but you can start making submissions now if you want to. Remember 1 entry per member, and you can not change your entry once submitted.
You must also state in your post that the deviation your submitting is for the Halloween Wallpaper Contest being held in this group
Entries that do not contain all the required information will be removed from the Contest folder!!
