[spoiler][u]What:[/u] A month long art competition seeking the best artists. Your tools? Ink, and however you can think of using it. Categories consist of The Classy (quality, above all else), The Inspired (creativity without bounds), and The Comedic (how hard can you make us laugh).
[u]When:[/u] Beginning October 1st, Inktober will consist of three, weekly competitions, and a final round at the month's end. Submissions are due October 7th, 14th, and 21st, with weekly winners being announced the following days, October 8th, 15th, and 22nd.
One winner will be chosen in each category, each week, with a first and second runner up announced alongside each category's winner. Each winners' submission will then proceed on to the final at the month's end, where one of the three submissions, in each category, will be chosen as the month's best, and receive the Grand Prize. A lottery will also be held for all of the runner-ups, where one winner will receive a smaller, consolation prize.
[u]Judging:[/u] All entries must be submitted by 10:00 PDT / 13:00 EDT in that week's corresponding thread. Final submission dates include October 7th, 14th, and 21st. The appropriate thread for the current submission period can be found at the top of this post. Once submissions have been gathered, a panel of seven (7) judges will vote for their favorite submissions in each category, with the recipient of the majority votes being crowned the winner. Categories will be judged on the following:
| The Classy - [i]Clean lines and style. These submissions should embody art at its cleanest and most polished. Not for the faint of heart.[/i]
| The Inspired - [i]Stick figures on a napkin? Why not? Show us your unique styles, and your ability to use new and creative mediums to express your artistic talents.[/i]
| The Comedic - [i]Fancy yourself a comedian? We're not interested in whether or not you can stay inside the lines here; we're looking for something that will make us fall over in laughter.[/i]
[u]Prizes:[/u] The Grand Prize winners will receive one (1) Union of Light emblem code, alongside one (1) Destiny soundtrack of their choice from the Bungie store. One winner of the runner-up lottery will receive one (1) Union of Light emblem code. Grand Prize and lottery winners will be announced on October 31st.

The 3v3 Tournament sounds amazing, but unfortunately my team and I live in the Philippines. The connection here is terrible and we'll probably get called out for lagswitching. Anyways, good luck to everyone participating! I'll be trying my hand out in the Inktober contest.
