Pendraken Painting Competition 2022!

Post by Leon Pendraken »

It's time for the Pendraken Painting Competition 2022!

With Covid still ongoing let's have something positive to focus on for a few weeks, so grab your brushes, dig out anything you've painted over the past 12 months and get those entries in. The 2022 Painting Competition will open to entries on February 1st and will be running all the way through until the end of the month. As always, this is a great opportunity to show what can be done in 10mm scale so we can't wait to see the entries.

Closing date for the competition will be midnight on Monday 28th February and we'll then open up the voting threads for everyone to decide our winners.

The categories will be the same as usual:

Categories:

Foot - Pre-20th C. - Max: 40 figures, on either a single base, multiple bases, or in a movement tray.
Foot - 20th C. - Max: 40 figures, on either a single base, multiple bases, or in a movement tray.
Mounted - Max: 20 figures, on either a single base, multiple bases, or in a movement tray.
Vehicle - Max: 3 vehicles on or off bases, including wagons and chariots.
Fantasy & Sci-Fi - Max: 40 figures, on either a single base, multiple bases, or in a movement tray.
Open - Single Base - Anything which doesn't fit into the other categories, with a max base size of 100x100mm. This could be a command base, a single figure, artillery base, etc.
Open - Army - Anything which is larger than the maximums in the other categories, so multiple units or a whole army.

If you're unsure which category to put your entry in, let us know what it is, and we'll point you in the right direction!

Rules - Please Read!

- Firstly, all figures must be Pendraken. Conversions are allowed, but only on our figures.

1. You must be a Forum member to enter, but other than that, everyone is welcome! The Forum registration is open again now, so head over and register!

2. You may enter as many times as you like but each entry is only allowed 2 images (except for the 'Army!' category, see below). We do not allow montage images anymore, just to keep a level playing field. You can however edit your two images into a single file for the sake of uploading/hosting them. The best way to add your images is through a separate photo hosting site, or a blog, but if you have any difficulty posting pics then let us know and we'll help you out.

3. The 'Open - Army!' category may have 5 photo's, as it's difficult to cover a whole army with just a single photo!

4. All entries must be your own work, and have not been entered into any online competitions before.

5. Entries should have been completed in the last 12 months, so we hope you've all been busy!

6. You can post WIP (work-in-progress) photos if you wish, but please create a new thread for these. You can also post extra photos of your work elsewhere on the Forum. These will not count towards your competition entry.

7. The winners will be decided by the Forum members, so once the closing deadline has passed, we'll put up a poll thread for each category where our members can vote on who they want to win. The polls will close 7 days later and the winners will be announced.

8. Competition threads will be created on the opening date, purely for your entries.

9. Pendraken may use your pics in future promo/marketing, catalogue covers or web pics. Entering gives your permission for your pics to be used.



And now the good bit, the prizes! With everything on one website now we've decided to up the ante a bit and increase the prizes all around, giving over £500 of prizes available! The winners and runners-up in each category will receive the following:

[size=11pt]- The Winner of each category will receive £50 worth of Pendraken credit!
- The Runner-Up of each category will receive £25 worth of Pendraken credit![/size]

Credit will be applied in the form of Loyalty Points added to your Pendraken website accounts, so you can spend it as you wish on any of the 6000 products we've got available.


So:

Competition opens - February 1st!
Closing deadline - Midnight, February 28th!



As always, if there's any questions just let us know!
www.pendraken.co.uk - Now home to almost 6000 products, including over 4200 products in 10mm, plus MDF bases, Vallejo paints, I-94 decals, Red Vectors MDF buildings, Raiden Miniatures, Militia Miniatures and much, much more!

I won the Fantasy/Sci Fi section with my Anubis Warriors (and assorted hangers on). :)
In fairness to all the other categories it didn't have any of the absolutely incredible paintjobs that others were up against, but still very pleased to beat some that I thought were very good indeed.
