's blessing, I'm going to host an Equine Secret Santa gift exchange again for 2014! Much of this text was taken directly from the ESS group (with permission, of course).
What is "Secret Santa"
Secret Santa is a western holiday tradition in which participants are randomly assigned another participant to give a gift to. Despite the name, it is open to everyone, regardless of your traditions/beliefs. No one is excluded
What is "Equine Secret Santa"
The idea is to take the general rules of Secret Santa and apply them to equines via artwork. After you submit your name to me with some information and references (if you don't have an equine character you can tell me your favorite color/breed of horse), I will assign you another participant. It is your job to create a piece of artwork for that participant. At the same time, your name will be given to someone else, who will create a piece for you too!
HOW TO ENTER
Title: Equine Secret Santa
Body: Name: your username (in @ username, or : devusername: format)
Characters: thumbnails or links to references
(but don't note me, note the group this year!)
HOW MANY PLACES ARE THERE?
There are 150 places open! However, if 150 comes and there are still a lot more people who would like to enter, I will possibly open some more slots. But enter quickly before the spaces run out! Last year we had about 120.
WHEN DOES IT START?
Entries open October 20th! Mark your calendars and get ready!
WHEN DOES IT END?
Entries close on October 31st. You have a TWO WEEKS to get your name in, and then after that, I'll send you the name of the person you will draw for. You should have a name no later than Nov 5th.
WHEN CAN I UPLOAD MY GIFT?
You can start uploading your gift from the 1st of December 'til the 25th of December. If you know you won't be at home or near a computer during that time, you can upload it earlier. Please state so in your description. Make sure to submit it to the ESS group so I can keep track of your entries!
IF YOU FAILED TO DELIVER YOUR WORK LAST YEAR WITHOUT EXPLANATION, YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE THIS YEAR.
You're on my naughty list. Not cool!
Right, are you excited? You should be!
