This is where you suggest ideas for the theme of Contest 22. All themes that are seconded will be put to a vote after one week. The winner of Contest 21's idea is automatically seconded. (That's you haKet!) This thread will be open until the end of Monday July 8th. Then the voting thread will open. Ready, set, BRAINSTORM!


_____________________________________________
Contest Rules
1. Entries must be previously unsubmitted work. Entries must be at least 2/3 maille woven within the time frame of the contest. The remaining 1/3 can be any maille previously woven or any non-maille. Maille consists of any rings, metal or otherwise, or ring substitutes like scales or pop tabs. Non-maille consists of things like beads or wire wraps.

2. You can submit as many entries as you like.

3. Pictures and descriptions of the entry must be submitted to the contest submission thread before the deadline, by hosting the pictures offsite. (In other words, you need to use an image hosting site to place your picture in the entry thread. They are free to use, you just have to register with them to create an account. Some examples of image hosting sites are TinyPic, Photobucket, Flickr, and ImageShack.) Pictures must be a MAXIMUM of 100KB and a MAXIMUM of 800px per side.

4. The submission period for entries generally lasts 12 weeks. After the deadline for contest entries, the contest organizer will create a voting thread with all the entries, to be voted on by the membership. The entire membership may vote, each member having one vote. Polls usually last one week before the winner is declared.

5. The winner of the contest will receive a colored shield by their avatar with a number corresponding to the contest they won. The winner will also be granted automatic inclusion of their suggestion on the list of themes for the next contest.

6. The contest organizer may invalidate any entry. If you have concerns about your or any other entry, please contact the contest organizer with a PM. If the contest organizer deems it necessary, a new thread for public discussion will be opened.

I second "weaves without gallery submissions".

Automotive / transportation

Like a full Maille trailer for a bicycle, or better yet a functioning Maille porsche.

I like the two tone idea (or multi tone), or the no gallery submitted one; that would leave a good bit to work with.

I like the pet one too Wink

I saw in an older thread an Elements idea (earth, air, water, fire); I think that would be cool with colors.

Pick one weave for the contest to see how many different ways it can be used.

i'm not sure i understand that one. like an exploration of variations? seems more like article material to me. there is a limiting number of base weaves so you might end up with strikingly similar submissions. or did you mean we decide a base weave as a group and all do one of its variants? if so which weave? we would have to vote on it. either way i feel like "All in the family" sorta sums that idea.

What I'm thinking of is a weave is picked, say Helm's Weave. Then everyone in the contest uses Helm weave to make thier entry. I might make a headpiece and someone else makes a belt and so on. That is where each person's creativity shines.

Does that help?
