Its a new year and to celebrate we've decided to throw a contest. The theme is the Chinese Zodiac! Feel free to draw anything any one of the zodiacs in the way you envision them.

~Newsha and me are currently asking for donations for the prizes. All donators will have their account ID featured here in this journal along with their name featured next tot their prize. Please send a note to either contest hostess with information to what you'd like to have donated and the quantity as well. Thanks so much!~


The race begins on January 15th and well end on February 28th.

Submission Rules
- Must be new piece specifically made for this contest
- Only one zodiac sign can be portrayed in each submission and it must be clear which zodiac is in the image
- Adult themes allowed (Blood/Nudity) only if it is found tasteful and only adds to the power of the piece.
- Please submit only polished and finished pieces. No sketches/doodles/rushed works.
- You may enter as many submissions as long as it follows the rule about polished works.
- Accepted mediums include traditional, digital and animation/gifs.  All format sizes allowed. But try not to make it to small as a loss in detail may hurt you and your chances of winning.
- Photo manipulation is not allowed
- Do not use any copyright materials or infringe on any deviant art rules with the submission
- Donors can submit to the contest

Participation
- Submit the new deviation to deviant art and in the information, reference the Great Race contest and put a link back to this journal.
