Pixel Art Show- Accepting Entries

The ASMS Gallery is hosting a Pixelart-specific show in its art gallery in September on Friday the 10th.  Which is where you come in.  Submit something, old or new, any subject matter, so long as the medium is pixel art.

We assumed that wasn't enough to sell you on the idea, so here's some incentive.
Though this is a show and not a competition, the entries will be judged and awarded accordingly.

Prizes are as follows:
1st Place- $100
2nd Place- $ 50
3rd Place- $ 25

There's no cost to enter, and you can submit old work- or use this as an excuse to make something new.  So there's little reason not to enter.

To enter, simply send the piece to my email at thereaintnocure@hotmail.com, or provide me a link in a private message here at the site.
It'd be very useful if you'd include your name, location (country/state), profession or student status, program used and any information you'd like to provide about the piece.

There is no limit on the number of entries, but prizes are restricted to one per person.

Deadline is the 23rd of September.

The deadline is the 23rd of September.  I updated the pixelation thread for this with that a while ago, forgot I didn't update this as well.  So there should be plenty of time for those wishing to submit a new piece.  No size limit, I'd imagine the monitors should be able to cover it, so long as it's not some eboy-sized scene. Any palette should be fine as well.  Pretty loose rules, anything allowed in the gallery here works for this.

I think you need better taste in your hookers.

What's the submission date?  I assume we have until the end of august?  Or not even?

also - any size? general palette (like, just so i don't put a single-bit next to demoscene :P)

What a fool.  9.9

Common, I have a reputation to take care of, what do you think I 'am capable of stealing money from kids?! Besides prizes are not big enough even to pay for booze and a hooker.=)

skeddles (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 8/8/2008 21:24
I was thinking that also. Fool can pwn the crap out of us little people.

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 8/8/2008 21:05
No, we'd prefer to showcase range of artists, geographically as well as stylistically.

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 8/8/2008 19:40
...so this will pretty much be an exhibition of Fool's work?

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/8/2008 15:59
Why not save time and just send me the check ;P

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 8/8/2008 15:33
Nope.  Anything gallery-worthy here will probably be exhibited, the competition aspect is purely to add incentive to submit.

manxana (Level 3 Stalker) @ 8/8/2008 14:21
only the winners will be exposed?

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 8/8/2008 09:47
We'll be using 27" lcd screens.  So it seems feasible.

FrankieSmileShow (Level 6 Manager) @ 8/8/2008 09:44
Im guassing animated pixel art is no go?! Gat dam......!

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 8/8/2008 09:36
Actually, I reckon you should submit The 100th Floor...

Also, when do we have to submit something by?

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 8/8/2008 09:35
One of your recent pixel experiments would be nice- good pick.

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 8/8/2008 09:04
Probably.  I'll have to check.
Prizes aren't commin' outta my pocket, I ain't complainin' neither.

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 8/8/2008 09:01
Yay my mushroom.
I think this is a great idea, you probs didn't need the prizes but i won't complain.
I imagine it's one piece per artist?

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 8/8/2008 08:47
They haven't been working for me lately, oh well.  Thanks for the catch.
