Competition “ACEO Bounty” Challenge

Opening Post

Challenge to WIN the Ultimate “ACEO Bounty” Prize

The “goal” of this competition is to promote the artwork of the Participating Artists …the venue they use for their store listings (“Etsy”) …and involve their patrons with something fun to do.

The Artists challenge YOU to challenge THEM to create “something” as an ACEO.

What is an ACEO?
• ACEO stands for “Art Cards, Editions and Originals” …a specific “size” of artwork measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches in either Portrait or Landscape orientation …based on the Artist Trading Cards and other collectable cards …for more details please check out the Participating Artist’s listings as an explanation can be found there.

To enter the competition post a “Challenge to create an ACEO” to this thread (refer point 2 below)

☆     “One” challenge
☆     …per person
☆     …per day
☆     …please *smile* …with other posts at random.

The resulting ACEO artwork created will be listed with the key words of “ACEO Bounty” in the title (when searching please use quotation marks [“] to ensure the most accurate list of the “ACEO Bounty” items).

The Ultimate “ACEO Bounty” Prize consists of all “ACEO Bounty” listings on Etsy at the closure of the competition.

The Ultimate “ACEO Bounty” Prize will be awarded to the last person to post to the “ACEO Bounty” thread when all other post activity ceases for a period of 24 hours …or such time as the Participating Artists choose to end the competition by way of a “Count Down” (see Final Release Clauses).

Posts by the listed Participating Artists are excluded from winning the Ultimate “ACEO Bounty” Prize …and as such are not counted as “post activity”.

Other competitions will also be held periodically with entry details posted within this thread.

The listed Participating Artists extend an “Invitation” to other Artists to join in the promotion (refer point 2)

Further …the Participating Artists extend a “Challenge” for “crafty” Sellers …to create frames and ways to display ACEO’s (refer point 22)

Monthly votes by the listed Participating Artists for challenges made …(eg. Best Challenge of the Month …Best Overall Challenge) …and also for the ACEO Display challenges …(eg. Best ACEO Display of the Month …Best Overall ACEO Display) …will receive an award being a selection from the “ACEO Bounty” listings of a nominated artist (subject to change) for that Month.

…then read the “longer version” of the promotion’s details which follow for more information.

Competition “ACEO Bounty” Challenge

Second Post

Following in “point form” is the explanation of the ACEO Promotion.

☀ 1.   A thread is started by bellsakabin ...Titled: Competition “ACEO Bounty” Challenge …For the purpose of promoting the Participating Artists artwork and in particular those listings with “ACEO Bounty” in the Title.

☀ 2.   Two types of Challenges can be made ...a "General Challenge" ...or a "Specific Artist Challenge" ...that said it is also permitted that "All" Challenges made in the thread ...can be accepted by "any" artist who desires to do so ...this includes any or all the listed Participating Artists ...as well as any other Artist on Etsy who wishes to participate in this promotion ...simply by creating an ACEO ...listing it with "ACEO Bounty" in the title ...and in so doing …accepting the condition that their listing becomes part of the overall "ACEO Bounty" Prize.

☀ 3.   GENERAL CHALLENGE: People will enter the competition by posting a challenge to create an ACEO …eg. I challenge the artists to create “a peacock on a pink pumpkin”.

☀ 4.   SPECIFIC ARTIST CHALLENGE: People can also choose to challenge a particular artist because they like their style …eg. I challenge “bellsakabin” to create “a peacock on a pink pumpkin” (the “medium used” is the Artist’s choice).

☀ 5.   The competition permits a maximum of one “challenge” post per day by any individual …with other posts at random.

☀ 6.   Participating Artists may respond to any challenge …but there will be no obligation to any or all the Artists to create.

☀ 7.   Specifically Challenged Artists are not obligated to respond …but are encouraged to do so.

☀ 8.   There will be no specified “time frame” for a challenge ...because it would be too difficult to factor in all the different styles, methods and materials ...this is where “Jimminy Cricket” comes in *winks*

☀ 9.   The resulting ACEO created is to be listed by the Artist with the words “ACEO Bounty” in the title (preferably the first two words).

☀ 10.   The only mandatory requirement is to meet the "correct ACEO 2.5 x 3.5 inch size" in portrait or landscape orientation …the words "ACEO Bounty" in the listing title ...and that the Artist acknowledges that by listing with "ACEO Bounty" in the title …the item is then classified as part of the competition prize (until sold or won).

☀ 11.   The "ACEO Bounty" is comprised of listings by the various Participating Artists ...those created from the challenges posted in the thread then listed with "ACEO Bounty" in the title ...and those they choose to list with "ACEO Bounty" in the title to add to the prize pool.

☀ 12.   All listings on Etsy must be available for sale …this ensures compliance with Etsy listing policy....which means that the "ACEO Bounty" will fluctuate as listings are sold and new listings created.

☀ 13.   The artwork remains the property of the Artist until the Ultimate "ACEO Bounty" Winner is identified ...or such time as the item is "sold on Etsy" by the Artist and prior to the winner's identification ...the Artist retains all copyright etc as well as the financial gain through the sale (the Artist keeps the money).

☀ 14.   Once an item is listed as an "ACEO Bounty" ...it should remain listed on Etsy until such time as the competition ends ...or that listing is sold on Etsy (keywords “sold on Etsy”).

☀ 15.   The “ACEO Bounty” value shall be periodically calculated and posted to the thread (as a guide only).

☀ 16.   The ultimate winner of the "ACEO Bounty" competition (being the last person to post with no further posts for 24hrs). ...wins all the current listings on Etsy at that time ...which have the words "ACEO Bounty" in the listing title.

☀ 17.   The Participating Artists as listed in the opening post …are excluded from winning the “ACEO Bounty” …but may enter other competitions within the thread.

☀ 18.   Participating Artists will have the ability to “challenge” to create an ACEO.

☀ 19.   The listed Participating Artists will also have the ability to run a competition in the thread …for which they supply the prize …eg. a selection of an ACEO with “ACEO Bounty” in the title from their store …or possibly a Discount voucher or gift voucher for use in their store (conditions will apply …eg. Artist’s cannot win their own prize competition and must abide by the conditions referred to in points 20 & 21).

☀ 20.   There will be other competitions held within this thread ...guidelines for those competitions to be detailed and posted ...with the only mandatory rule being that the participants and winner must "never" have a "qualifying" condition placed upon them (eg. buy one to get one free) this is a legal requirement.

☀ 21.   There must never be any competition or offer posted to this thread which has conditions placed upon the participants or winner to qualify by way of …the “payment of fees”, or a “purchase required”, or the “supply of personal details” …eg. No “Purchase to enter” or “signup for a newsletter to enter” …Any such competitions identified will be immediately withdrawn and a post advising the withdrawal reason of “Competition does not meet the ‘unconditional’ requirements of this Promotional thread”.

☀ 22.   There will be a competition challenge for “crafty” Sellers …to create frames and ways to display ACEO’s …list their creation for sale on Etsy …and the Participating Artists will vote for a Monthly prize winner to be chosen from all current ACEO display listings …eg. Best ACEO Display of the Month …Best Overall ACEO Display.

☀ 23.   All prizes awarded within this thread are to be processed on Etsy like a “Trade” with the winner leaving feedback for the Artist on receipt of their prize …this is to ensure that Etsy receives their commission as host of the listing for the item so awarded …and that the winner by leaving feedback acknowledges that they are in receipt of the prize.

☀ 24.   The Ultimate “ACEO Bounty” winner may elect to receive their prize via delivery from just one person rather than from each Artist …this will be negotiated as part of the winner notification process.

In the event that the Participating Artists wish to end the competition …the following method shall be put into action to facilitate a winner.
