[Drawing Contest] S4L 2016 LookBack

Your last drawing contest of the year WITH A TWIST!
Dear artists,

With its ups and downs, 2016 is reaching its end and it's been one busy year for S4 League.
With the new year right around the corner, it is time to take a look back at our favorite content of the year.

We also want to take this opportunity to start a new process in our drawing contests rewarding:
The winners of this drawing contest will also be the Honorary Judges for the following drawing contest. Of course they won't be allowed to participate in the one they judge but those 3 winners will get the chance to vote for the Jury's Prize of the next drawing contest.
In short, every drawing contest after this one will have 3 identical prize winners: one picked by the GMs, one picked by the Jury (previous contest winners) and one picked by the community.



Draw your favourite S4L content from 2016, let it be a costume, a weapon, a pet or a skill.
Make sure you have the line "S4 League 2016 Lookback" as well as your Aeria ID included in the drawing.



The event will run from 14.12.2016 until 14.01.2017.



First Prize: weapon of your choice (FP stats) + 100K PEN + Honorary Judge for next contest + a forum badge.

Second Prize: weapon of your choice (AP stats) + 75K PEN + Honorary Judge for next contest + a forum badge.

Third Prize: weapon of your choice (PEN stats) + Honorary Judge for next contest + 50K PEN + a forum badge.

The participation prizes is 20K PEN and a forum badge.

Please remove the Honorary Judges thing if you want anyone to participate in this. This is a very bad idea. It will only cause corruption and favoritism. The winners should be chosen by independent group of ppl such as GMs and not participants.

I don't see how this will bring "corruption and favoritism."

We select 3 people independently as GMs.
They select 1 Jury which will vote for 1 winner.

So even if we somehow manage to select 3 people who will work together to favor someone, they will have 1 person in the jury next time.
The other will be selected by us, the other through community.

And even if 1 of them favor someone, they will have 1 vote for 1 of the winners next time out of the 3 winners total.

We are also thinking stuff like the jury giving some insight about their selection, which we hope to allow the artists to share insight. But honestly if you start with this attitude you will create senseless speculation. We look at it as a way to empower the community.

That said, we will definitely be open to feedback.
Say, if we note people botting for notes or favoring someone, we can take action. In the past we had people cheating with their drawings and we even disqualified people after they won.
These events we do because we love our artist community and we do not shy about taking action to keep them intact.

Even with that, I don't think that is what the ppl are wanting to see in these kind of events.
Competitors shouldn't be allowed to be judges.

As an artist, I wouldn't want to be judged by someone with who I have competed in the past simply because they will still see me as competitor (especially if the result was a close call in the lats contest) and is most likely not to vote for me on purpose just so it can be everyone else but not me.

I hope you see my point.

Also better rewards and more game affecting events is what motivates the ppl to participate.

We'll see how everyone thinks but it's up to you what to make of it. That is what I meant by attitude.

You can think of them as "competitors" or you can see them as part of a close community.

For drawing events and our artist community, I'd like to think that the "competition" isn't that harsh or important.
And honestly I don't see why it should. In the end, this is about celebrating the talent within the community ^^

I am not saying everyone is like that but it is a possibility.
Btw is being a judge optional? I mean there may be ppl who don't wan't to bother for one or another reason (lack of time or just preferring to stay neutral etc)


Also I would like to know which content is considered the start of 2016 just to avoid picking up something that is older.
