WELCOME to Model Mayhem's MUA of the Week~ a competition based platform on which we promote the efforts and skills of all participating MM member MakeUp Artists!!
At year's end all our weekly winners will be entered in our Model Mayhem sponsored "MM MUA of the YEAR" a final year end competition for a chance at supreme recognition and awesome awards!!
This competition works basically in the same way that our others do but please read "Thee Rules" section before submitting your entry.
1. MM members and Contest Hosts may submit entries to this contest. To enter the contest you must submit 3 individual images (NO composites) of which you are the Make Up Artist/MUA. Images should be appropriately sized (we suggest no more than 700 pixels on either side). By entering this competition you are stating that you are authorized by the photographer/copyright owner to post your images and that you assume any and all liability associated with posting your images and that you agree to the removal of any image a Contest Host feels does not comply with our set standards and contest objectives. No 18+ images or links are permitted. 2. You may enter this competition only once per contest, Tuesday through Saturday (Eastern-Pacific standard time zones), and you may enter each consecutive competition, no matter how many "wins" you have been awarded.
3. Voting will begin with the "vote banner" on Sunday morning, at or shortly after 12:00am EST, and will close on Tuesday morning, at or after 12:00am EST with the closing banner. No image submissions are accepted during the voting process so please hold your next entry until voting closes. 4. All MM member visitors, contestants and Contest Host/CH contestants are encouraged to vote and may cast ONE vote per competition. Contest Hosts who have not entered competition will not vote. As a contestant you are encouraged to invite friends to view and participate in this contest; however, to keep things fair, votes cast for you by friends and associates will not be counted. Soliciting votes in any way, on behalf of yourself or others, directly or indirectly, in MM or in any other social media is strictly prohibited. This contest is not a popularity based contest and if *established indicators suggest that votes have been solicited by anyone, for anyone, we will disqualify those particular votes. A vote DQ however, is not an accusation of cheating or vote stacking; it is the result of a neutral safeguard we have put in place to net votes that display the typical indicators of solicited votes.
Typical indicators of votes suspect of being solicited are: *Votes posted by friends and members located in the same geographic area as the contestant.
*Votes posted in quick succession by members who don't normally visit the forums and have a low post count.
*Votes posted by friends associated with the creation of an image who are not regular participants in the contest. If one or more of your votes is DQ'd by a Contest Host you will be promptly notified via private message. If a contestant feels he/she has had votes wrongly DQ'd, the contestant may contact a Contest Host via pm to enter a protest but may not post a protest in the contest thread. Final ruling/decisions by the Contest Host will not be reversed. As of 3/31/13 a new BONUS Incentive is being offered to all contestants who vote in the contest they are entered in. A 2 vote bonus will be awarded as an incentive for contestants to vote! This will offset the competing vote you've placed and will compensate you with an additional vote for your participation in helping us to grow this competition.
2-way ties will be awarded and 3-way ties will be broken by a deciding vote cast by Craig Seay.
5. Winners will be announced and posted, along with a new banner, each Tuesday. This banner may also be posted by the winner on the winner's profile page (if that option is available at the winner's level of membership)
6. Once an image has been submitted, please do not resubmit the same image for at least 14 days (2 consecutive contests) following submission of that image.
7. No winning images may be re-entered in to the same contest in which they have previously won.
We encourage that you take this competition seriously but let's keep it fun...NO DRAMA please~!!
Any violation of the rules of this contest may result in the disqualification of an entry and repeated violations will result in a permanent ban of the non-compliant member from this competition.
