Break the Box | Skin Contest

Hey-o, one and all! To celebrate reaching 200+ subscribers, I've decided to host a contest! Please keep in mind that this is my first time hosting a contest, so not everything may be perfect. If you'd like to make suggestions, please do! I would like for this contest to be inclusive and open to the community!

Info | How to join
Break the Box is a skin contest meant to challenge creativity. Think outside the box. Be the box. Break the box.

Although this contest celebrates my 200+ subscribers, anyone can join, as long as they don't break the rules.
There will be 4-5 rounds and no elimination. It will be anyone's game to the end. More info about how judging will work can be found below.

To join, you can leave a comment here or pm me. I will put a list of participants up as the first round starts.
You may enter any time throughout round one. After round one ends, we will not accept new participants. Ideally, rounds will last around a week. If you would like to push the date or need more time, please tell me! More specific dates will be included with the rounds.
Judging
As there is no elimination, the scoring system is point-based.
We will be looking at concept and execution. These will be judged separately, each on a scale from 1-10.
Whoever has gathered the most points by the end will be dubbed the winner.

What is concept? Concept is your idea and how it relates to the theme of the round. The ideal skin would have the most creative idea, while still relating to the given theme.

What is execution? Execution is how you've portrayed your idea/concept. Can you tell what it is? Does it look nice? The ideal skin would convey your concept without the need to read the description.

The judges have different skin-making backgrounds to ensure fair competition.
The judges are myself, Box Post, Prince Oceanus, and Chabilulu.
Rules
Although there is no elimination, you can still be disqualified. Please follow these rules:

- Don't be rude to other participants nor judges.
- Don't plagiarize. Entries must have been created by you.
- Don't post a recolor or alternate version of a skin you've already made. Creativity is key in this contest.

Although this isn't necessarily a rule, please put "breakthebox" in the tags of your entry! It makes it easier for the judges to find your skins.

ROUNDS
The rounds will not be revealed until they start. This is so participants can't prepare for the next round before it starts.
ROUND 1 - MY PEOPLE
For this round, each participant will be given a random picture. This picture will be your universe. You must create a species, race, or type of people that would be found there.

ENTRIES DUE: Monday, February 12th

So, this round will run a little longer than most. Since it's the starting round, we don't have a set number of participants yet. During the course of these weeks, you can join at any time. If you join during the later week and want me to push the date back a bit, tell me and I'll try to work something out.

ENTRIES DUE: Monday, February 26th

This theme was inspired by Paelen.

But you could also make your own season?

You can do anything as long as two (or more) seasons are mixed together, or if it's related to a season you've created.

Yes! Anyone who put in an entry for the first round is still in the contest. There's no elimination!

There's only one person on the participants list right now because they're the only one with their entry in so far.
