Now it's time for our artists to sign up for our second annual takethatslash Big Bang.

Here are the housekeeping type things…

Challenge rules for Artists and Vidders
1. You agree to create at least one piece of art to be claimed by one or more takethatslash writer.
2. Your art may take one of the following forms:
  • Drawings
  • Paintings
  • Collage
  • Photo manipulation
  • Vid
  • Wallpaper/iconsets
  • Whatever other media strikes your fancy.
    Have fun with your project!
    3. Collaborations between artists are also allowed. Just let us know when you sign up if you are planning on working with a partner.
    4. Remember you're creating art to inspire a writer.
    5. On your assigned posting date, you will make a master art post at takethatslash, and provide links to the master post and art to your writer so they can link to it in the story. Please do not post your artwork anywhere prior to your assigned posting date.
    6. If you feel you have the energy and willpower to create artwork for someone else’s story, as well as writing your own, then please feel free to sign up as both an artist and as a writer.

    Important Dates
    Please sign up to participate before July 15.

    On August 31, a rough draft of your art is due. The mods will anonymously post the art rough drafts for claiming by writers on September 5. Art will be claimed on a first come, first served basis, though once all art has been claimed, art can be claimed by more than one writer. Once your art has been claimed, we’ll give the writer(s) your contact information and the rough draft of your art from which to work.

    The due date for your artwork/vid is October 31. Your work should not be posted on a public forum at this time, but you must provide us with either a working link to the art, or the art file itself so we can confirm it is complete for posting.

    You will be assigned a posting date in November.

    To sign up, please comment below with:

    Artist/Vidder name:
    LJ username (if applicable):
    Email address:
    What form will your art take (if you know)?:

    If you would prefer not to put your email address in the comment, then please send any of the mods a PM with the information.

    If you have any questions, please send any of the mods a PM.

    And finally, thanks for participating...and TAKE THAT!

    Your mod team is here to announce the second annual takethatslash Big Bang Challenge. This year, to shake things up, we'll be doing a Reverse Big Bang, which means the artists take the lead.

    For those of you who haven’t seen a Big Bang Challenge before, it’s a collaborative effort between writers and artists. In a Reverse Big Bang, artists sign up to produce a piece of art, which can be an illustration, a manip, or even a vid. Later in the process, writers can claim a piece of art, and produce a story based on the art with a minimum word count.

    We're setting a minimum word count this year of 5,000 words, to encourage as many of you to participate as possible. And remember, that's a minimum. If you're inspired by the boys and our artists and want to write 30,000 or 50,000 or even 100,000 words, we'll cheer you on.

    Artists sign-ups will start tomorrow, and run until the July 15. Writer sign-ups will also start tomorrow and close on the August 31. Art first drafts will be due on August 31, and art claims will open to writer on September 5. Final drafts of both stories and art will be due on October 31, with posting to begin in November.

    Even if you don't plan on signing up, there will be plenty of opportunities to join in. We'll have regular check in posts, and you can help by cheerleading, volunteering to beta, providing prompts, and generally joining in the festivities. So fire up your word processor, sharpen your pencils, fine tune your Photoshop skills, gear up your vidding software and get set for the biggest bang since the Big One!!!

    tt ot5 puppy pile


    For our artists, now is when you get to claim the story you'd like to work on for the Big Bang.

    Here's how:

    Click on the cut and read the story summaries. Not all the summaries have titles but they are all numbered.

    Comment to the post with your e-mail address and your top four story choices in order of preference.  Artists should also let us know whether they are willing to provide art for a second story, or to supply art if another artist unexpectedly has to pull out, as we have more stories than we do artists. While you will only be working on one or two stories, giving us your top four choices will hopefully minimize the odds of our having to re-contact you if all your choices have been claimed by others. We will be monitoring this post and striking through stories as they're claimed but obviously there might be a bit of a time delay and obviously at some point there won't be four stories left to put in order of preference.

    So, here's the form:



    We will send you the rough draft of your story selection and your writer's email addie ASAP.

    The comments on this post are screened, so your mods are the only ones who will see them. If you have any questions, you can let us know via comment.

    On to the summariesCollapse )

    Your friendly and two-thirds brand spanking new moderation team have decided to take the plunge and run the First Annual Take That Slash Big Bang Challenge!

    +++++

    For those of you who haven’t seen a Big Bang Challenge before, it’s a collaborative effort between writers and artists. Writers sign up to write a story with a minimum word count. Later in the process, artists claim a story based on an anonymous story summary and produce at least one piece of art to go with it. The art can be an illustration, a manip, or even a vid.

    We're setting a minimum word count this year of 10,000 words, to encourage as many of you to participate as possible. And remember, that's a minimum. If you're inspired by the boys and want to write 30,000 or 50,000 or even 100,000 words, we'll cheer you on.

    Writer sign-ups will start tomorrow, and run until the 1st of June. Artist sign-ups will also start tomorrow and close on the 31st of August. Stories and art will be due in late September, and posting will begin on October 15.

    Even if you don't plan on signing up, there will be plenty of opportunities to join in. We'll have regular check in posts, and you can help by cheerleading, volunteering to beta, providing prompts, and generally joining in the festivities. So fire up your word processor, sharpen your pencils, fine tune your Photoshop skills, gear up your vidding software and get set for the biggest bang since the Big One!!!

    Title: Fallen

    Having read the rules I'm fairly certain this is okay to post here-

    Basically I was wondering if anyone might be interested in joining a celeb RP comm on insanejournal as Howard to play against my Jason?

    If anyone's interested but would like more info feel free to comment or PM me if you'd rather.
