Layout Challenge Rules - Updated Jan 2020

Basic rules:

  1. A layout may only be submitted for 1 challenge.
  2. Layouts must follow the directions of the challenge to be eligible for points and prizes.
  3. Layouts must be uploaded to the Pixel Scrapper gallery to be eligible for points and prizes (get access here).
  4. Layouts can use elements from any designer (you do NOT need to use a certain % of Pixel Scrapper elements), unless specifically stated in the challenge.
  5. Layouts must be tagged with the tags provided in each challenge.
  6. Challenges run for the month, unless otherwise stated.

Prizes:
Download Credits will be awarded on a MONTHLY basis. If you want to earn 10 download credits, you must create 8 layouts for the month's challenges and share your results in the monthly completion thread. (You can create multiple layouts for the same challenge.)

To participate you should:

  1. Upload your layout to the Pixel Scrapper gallery. To get access, sign up here.
  2. Post a reply in the forums to the challenge you are entering, linking to your submitted layout.
  3. Right click on the image of your layout and choose "copy image URL." Paste this link into the image button on your forum post. Don't forget to include the link to your layout too, so people can smiley it. This is your entered layout for the challenge (see here for helpful screenshots).
  4. Be sure to check out the other submissions and leave comments and smiley .

I see there is a layout completed thread, and that Bina has already posted several LO to that thread. But she has also posted to the thread for each challenge as well. So we have to basically post our layouts twice.

Once on the challenge thread itself and once again in the completed LC thread. Is this correct?

I just to get this clarified so that I have the correct understanding. smiley

Thank you.

@Robynne: smiley You can just copy paste from the edit function of your post in the particular challenge thread, the only thing you need to do apart from that is alter the image size to 200x200.

Gotcha. Thanks Bina smiley

The important one I'll be checking for the DC at the end of the month is the completed thread. But it's nice to share your finished layout in the actual thread too, as it may help inspire others.

smiley love this Marisa! Sounds like a lot of fun!

I love the new format! Now to see what I can do...

ok thank you Marisa! smiley smiley

Than you Marisa! I think this month I will try to make some challenges, it's been a long time since I do not upload a layout and I miss it! smiley smiley

Have to say that with the new challenge rules, I am a lot more motivated to keep coming back and trying out new things!

I like how we can earn DC no matter if we "win" a challenge or not, I think it might inspire more to participate. I plan to start on a layout challenge today. I may not get 10 done before the end of the month but I will try and at least it will get me to start participating, which is the most important thing. smiley

I just have a question: those 10 points are not accumulative? I joined for two months without downloading anything (I just used my 5 points) and I only have 10 points, not 20.

DC points have not been awarded yet as of 3 May 8 AM Eastern time. I'm pretty sure thats correct. I have not received mine yet either. It's done manually by Marisa I think.

smiley

Yes, if you're looking for your April points I hope to get to them today! It is a manual process, so it's usually done during working hours, rather than on a weekend.

Thank you, Marisa, hope you are all well! smiley smiley

Is is one layout per challenge or can you do multiple pages for the one challenge if the pages are different?

AS Marisa says - If you want to earn 10 download credits, you must complete 8 challenges and share your results in the monthly completion thread.

So 8 (different) challenges means 8 layouts minimum assuming 1 LO per challenge.

BUT the skys the limit in your maximum number of layouts.

You can do as many layouts you wish to do for each challenge - as long as you do 8 different challenges at a minimum!!

Just clarifying - to get 10 credits, I need to compete at least 8 challenge layouts. If I don't complete 8 layouts, I don't need to post in the completion thread, because I won't be receiving credits anyways. Is that correct? Or is there any reason to post there if I complete less layouts?

@Teddy: No need to post in the completion thread unless you think you'll do the 8 layouts.

@Sara: I will update the rules so that you can repeat challenges with different layouts.

Thanks Marisa! I don't tend to scrap that fast, so it's one less thing on my to-do list smiley (and I still have some credits saved up from when you were doing random drawings . . . so I'm good for a while smiley )

Thank you so much Marisa! almost the month is done I'm at just 1 layout to reach my goal! smiley
