Comic Art News: Best of 2014... It Begins

A big thanks to Bill Cox for hosting it again this year. Bill turned on the "Best of 2014" on early, so decided to start a day early. Comicartfans lets you post your entries under the Lowry. So that means everyone will only be able to have 5 entries each, then voting for all 6 categories (Published and unpublished) occurs at the same time.

Below is instructions on how to upload images and descriptions for the entries. We have set aside a week for people to upload their stuff and then voting will begin on the NOW! (Bill was able to turn it on early so why wait)

Best of 2014 Published and Unpublished (happens at the same time)
You will have up to 5 entries and they can be in any of the 7 categories:
Published Covers
Published Splashes, Pin-Ups
Published Interior Panel pages
Published Strip Art
Published/Unpublished Commissions
Unpublished Convention Sketches
Published/Unpublished Other

Posting Entries Begins: NOW!
Posting Ends: Jan 18 11:59PM (Sunday)

Best Published Acquisions of 2014.
This theme lists each participating member's best acquisition of 2014 that has appeared or is/was scheduled to appear or created to appear in a comic book or comic book related publication. This category includes all published material, unpublished covers, and similar items.

Best Unpublished Acquisions of 2014.
This theme lists each participating member's best acquisition of 2014 that has not appeared and is not scheduled to appear in a comic book or comic book related publication. This category includes all unpublished material (except unpublished covers and pages), drawings, prelims, Style Guides. sketches commissions ect.

We have added one new category "Published/Unpublished Commissions" and modified another "Published/Unpublished Other". There is a mistake in both titles (may get it fixed but Bill has been very busy with non-CAF work), it shows Unpublished but they will both include published (if someone’s commission is used in a sketchbook, comic book or other book) , Other will be the material that doesn’t fall into the other 6 categories.

I know there will be some confusion with the new changes so please email me with any questions. We will try this new way this year and I will solicit feedback after the voting on how it works and if we need any changes.

Procedure for adding entries:

1) Goto http://www.comicartfans.com/Login.asp
2) Select Login then Admin/Edit User Profile
3) Select the "Comicart-L Member" option (you will need this option turned on to upload entries to the Lowry)
2) Select Manage/Manage Galleries Preferences
3) Select Your Lowry and add pieces (if you have not used the Lowry before)
4) Click the 'View/Add Pieces' link and then click the 'Add New 
Artwork' link.
5) Add a piece as you usually do to the caf but there is an additional field "Best of 2014"
6) Please include the artists names (both penciler and inker if it applies)
7) There are 6 categories to chose from:

Published Covers (Unpublished covers as well)
Published Splashes, Pin-Ups
Published Interior Panel pages
Published Strip Art
Published/Unpublished Commissions (work artist drawn outside of conventions)
Unpublished Convention Sketches (artwork drawn at conventions)
Published/Unpublished Other (all Published/Unpublished material which doesn’t fall into the other 6 categories (drawings, prelims, Style Guides, Rock Poster art, illustrations. etc.))

8) Select Active

Posting Entries Begins: Now
Posting Ends: Jan 18th (Sunday)

Voting starts Monday January 19st (Monday)
Voting end January 25th (Sunday)

In everyone's CAF there is a yellow section in the lower left there is a "Art by Year" section. It breaks down when pieces are posted by year.

I will post instruction on where and how to go about voting for the Best of before voting day.

If there are any problems in uploading images please e-mail Bill and any questions especially about the two category changes and what can be uploaded please direct to me. 
Look forward to alot of great artwork. Let the art begin......

Be seeing you,
Brian Peck
