--Make sure you have all the information in your first post. This includes the type of contest (fanart, amv, oc, etc), how long the challenge will run, how many entries you will accept, how people should enter, and how the winner will be chosen.
--Give your thread a descriptive title. "Zuko AMV Challenge" is acceptable, "OMG ZUKO!!!1!" is not.
--These challenges are open to all fandoms, however if the fandom contains lots of material that would be considered above PG-13, you would probably be better off finding a different one.
--If your challenge is going to have specific rules, such as "focus on one character" or "the vid can be no longer than 3 minutes", make sure they are clearly explained so there's no confusion.
When Entering a Challenge
--Make sure you follow all of the rules of the challenge. If you don't understand something, ask for a clarification.
--No whining or complaining if you don't win. If you think there was cheating, PM me or another staff member and we'll take care of it.
