UPDATED 12/2/22 ADDED MORE PRIZES
IMPORTANT:  For This contest please wait to give list as we are adding prizes still please remember to include prizes in order that you might like them along with links to the items you want unless it's a gift card item, email address and usernames and for software/shippable items please include real names and home address thank you in a PM

Christmas is a time of joy and for giving but only if you meet one condition... have you been Naughty or Nice? If you have been nice then all is well and you can expect something good this year when Santa comes around or one of his special agents delivers special gifts to make you happy. But, if you've been naughty, something else entirely happens... and something wicked this way comes!

This years Darker Shades of Christmas contest lets you decide what fate Christmas holds as either it's kids laughing tossing snowballs at one another or its rampaging snowmen throwing you through a wall... or maybe it's a classic tale from Christmas.


 1) First and foremost, we want everyone to enter. If you do not wish for a prize but want to participate in the spirit of showcasing your talent, we will be creating a list of those members who will officially receive a DSA No Prize. We've had trouble in the past where members enter who actually do not want to win. These members don't want to take anything away from members who are participating to win prizes and we've had issues in the past where we tried to accommodate these members but not every judge understood or read comments by the artist not to choose their image. When the official contest topic is posted, we would like any member who only wants to participate in the spirit of competition to contact us and we will officially add them to the No Prize list.

 2) Your images must follow the theme to the best of your ability. But how you do this is up to your individual creativity and imagination. So ask if you have questions about the theme.

 3) There is a post limit of one image a day... no reworks as all images must be original for this contest. Try adding different races and different cultures... explore the variety that makes up who and what we are.

 4) Images cannot be posted anywhere else for five days and must include links to this contest or statements that it is for this contest.

 A) Images posted late will be excluded from judging

 5) Artistic nudity is allowed but our rules on child nudity apply. No child nudity is allowed. This is defined as genitals and nip's so cover them up or risk violating our rules. A good alternative would be anime. 

 6) The contest is open to any medium that you wish to use. You can enter with Computer generated images, photo manipulated, hand-drawn, painted, or any other type of medium you can think of. Make note of the prizes being offered as only rarely might they not be 3d oriented.

 7) We consider it trolling if criticism about content is made when images are within the rules.

 8. Unless otherwise specified, make sure to add an alternate prize selection should you want a bundle or partnered item. Some of our sponsors allow this, some do not and some may on certain items of which we have no way of knowing.

 9) Consider adding some written text to explain your illustrations to help others better understand your image and leave comments on the entries of fellow contestants to show your appreciation.

 10) Make sure to check and see if the prize you have won is a coupon or a gift certificate. If it clearly says it is a coupon, do not apply it as a gift certificate at the sponsors' site or vice versa.

 11) The theme should focus on all wintery things.

 12) Include the following information ~

 A) Username (for DSA and sponsors site)
 B. Email Address
 C) Real Name & Physical Mailing Address (for software and physical prizes)

 13, Winners will provide a list including each sponsor in order that they would like to have the prizes. We will then choose what prizes you win on a first come, first serve basis. Our First Place winner will receive the first item on their list which will be removed from all other winners lists. Our Second Place winner will be given the first item remaining on their list and so forth. When each winner has been awarded a prize, we will begin again with the First Place winner until all prizes are awarded. 

 A) Our normal monthly contests will have 5 winners. Our larger contests will have up to 31 winners. We will alert members should this change at any time or if the sponsors have alerted us to award items to runners up.

 B. You may provide a list to us at any time during the month. Providing the list does not guarantee a prize. Items given to runners up, if any, will come from these lists or be donated by prize winners. 

 14) If you do not provide the items you would like where you have won a "choice" of items from the sponsor, on the list you provide to us, you will have 5 business days after notification to contact us. It is unfair that, in cases where a sponsor provides a prize to multiple winners, that winners who reply quickly must wait of winners who reply late.

 15) Remember, if you have any questions, please ask them in the contest topic so that staff or fellow members can explain and help you to understand rules or themes in our competition.

The galleries are a little difficult to maneuver in here.  I published an image for the contest but it didn't go into the album.  If I click on Upload to Gallery it shows at the top but I can't figure out how to get it into the album... I did it before but I must be getting old or something.. lol.  Would it be possible for someone to put it in the correct album or tell me how to do it??  Thanks in advance.

Thank you so much Impmon .  I'll have to use the directions to add my next image.  I thought that I had done those steps but I must have missed a step.

@TheKatster I found your image and moved it to the propper gallery for you. Also there is a menu link provided for easier access to the correct gallery for this challenge. This should help everyone wishing to enter.
