Deadline for submissions: December 27th (11:59 PM PST)
Judgement: by tribunal and popular vote from December 28th to January 2nd at midnight and Winners announced on January (whenever the all judges are done)

Volunteer Judges: none

Theme: Sprite a monster (enemy or boss) from any movie or literature (comic books are ok) that has not been featured in any Castlevania game and make it Christmas-y
Special things to remember:
1. Must not use these monsters that were made before: clicky
2. Write which movie or book the character came from and a short description of it.

Prizes: Award medals for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.

Guidelines for Participants:
-Provide your sprite in 1x and 2x zoom at least if your sprite is small. (High resolutions sprites need not have a 2x version)
-Contestants can post as many entries as they want and may update their entries freely before the submission deadline.
-You may withdraw any entry at any time before the judgement begins.

Guidelines for Judges:
-Judgement will use a point system.
-4 points awarded for your first place choice.
-2 points awarded for your second place choice.
-1 point for your third place choice.
-When posting your scores write up an explanation/critique of your judgement.
-Additional rounds of judgement will be used for tie breakers.
-Judges cannot participate in the contest.
-There will be a poll to vote for the most popular sprite and this popular vote would serve as an extra judge.

Entries:

I already have a character in mind maybe going to participate, there is something I wanted to post before to propose a competition like this: this is the 30th anniversary of Castlevania in america, and someone did a facelift patch for Castlevania here: https://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php?topic=24125.

So, how about a competition in which you remake the look of Castlevania the way you like for sprites and backgrounds of the complete stages or for one in particular, this competition could be the December competition so everyone would have almost 3 months for that quantity of work.

If I am not mistaken, a similar idea was proposed way back then, however, I just wanted newbie spriters to enter and enjoy making sprites. I would like to know if there are people who want to join a great undertaking as that one, I will open up a contest.
Anyone who is interested in a big sprite contest in the vein of what was mentioned in the quote, PM me.
