The Oscar race officially begins! Along with the nominations I am also announcing my oscar contest! If you would like to join in for a chance to win a free commission and to pick a character who will have a guaranteed spot in the next set of my series Dancing With the Gaming Stars, please read the rules below:


To enter in Kae's 3rd Annual Oscar Contest, each person must:


1. Comment to this journal if you would like to join the contest, this will help me keep track who is entering.

2 Read through the list of nominees at the bottom of these instructions, and choose carefully on who you think will win. You have to chose in each category. If you look at the most prominent categories, they are worth more points than others, so try to make those count because they can be game changers! You can only pick ONE nominee in each category, DO NOT send me two nominees you are debating on, or I will randomly pick one out of those two.

3. Send me a note, titled "your DA User name's Oscar Picks", containing all of nominees you picked who you think will win in each category! If you change your mind on a nominee, just write to me and tell me which category and who you want to change your choice to.

Either send me a note or email me at kaemcspadden@gmail.com to partake in the contest!

In case you do not have a DA account, don't worry. You can send me an email containing your choices.

4. So you have a month to decide on your choices. But keep in mind though, all notes must be sent in before the show on Sunday, February 26th, so the deadline for your bets are on Saturday, February 25th at midnight central time (Chicago). So you have plenty of time to decide.

How this works is that each category is worth a certain number of points (1-5), more prominent categories are worth more. If the participant(s) picks the nomination that wins on Sunday's show, then that participant(s) gains the amount of points that category offers. If not, then the participant(s) who picks wrong doesn't get any points for that category. At the end of the show, all of the points the participants earns adds up to their final score. The person who earns the most points and has the highest final score in the end, wins.

All of the points added up will equal 50, so that would be the score you would try to aim for.
So if you are really really really lucky, a perfect score would add up to 50.
 

Here are the prizes:


Prizes
1. A free commission drawn by yours truly!
2. Pick a character that will have a guarenteed spot in the 24th set of Dancing With the Gaming Stars.

(In case of a tie, the prizes will be divided in half, each of the two winners will have a small commission by me, and will each pick a character (one male and one female) to be in DWTGS25)

If you would like to help out and offer a prize, feel free!

Deadline: Saturday, February 25th (Midnight Central time)
