Epoch has been up and running for the past few weeks now, and while there was a lot of activity in that time, it has started to wane of late. With this in mind, I have decided to start a competition, to hopefully drum up some publicity. The name/theme of the competition is "Introducing...", and will act as a pre-artpack. It'll be open from now till the 9th of October, so you'll have a month. To enter, all you have to do is join the forums, at http://www.epochdesigns.co.uk/forums, and submit your design in the Competitions forum. The best 10 designs will be added to the pre-artpack, and the designers will be awarded places in the art group itself. This will be a great opportunity, not only to show off your talent for art, but to improve your skills and become part of something special. Rules If you are already a Epoch member, you will notice a "Competitions" thread in the forums. Inside that thread, will be a "Competition Submissions" thread. In there, you will submit your entry designs. Any work submitted by Epoch Designers will be automatically selected to go into pre-artpack. ONLY 1 submission per person is allowed. In order to make this a fair competition, there will be a minimum of 20 entrants for the competition to go forward. The Creative Directors' decision is final. Good Luck, Luke Davis, aka Starchild, Head of Epoch.
Just a quick update on the new art group, Epoch, Since Epoch was founded, just 3 days ago, a massive 46 members have joined, with a lot of potential amongst them. With this growth in mind, I have updated the forums software. So far, we have two applications, but unfortunately I cannot judge them on my own, so that means I'll be needing some help. I've promoted 3 members to admin status, but I still require one more. This place will only be filled through invite only, so if you think you have what it takes, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with evidence of your work, and I'll get back to you. In order to get in, you will need to assure me that you will be a regular member, who posts and uses the forums a lot. Also, just as a reminder to people who have joined but haven't come back, applications are now officially open, so get them in! This site can't move forward with new designers. For those who haven't heard of Epoch, please feel free to join.
As the saying goes, two heads are better than one. But with 50+ heads, you can only imagine what can be achieved, especially in the creative realms of design. Websites like DepthCore and Evoke produce some of the greatest works of digital art out there, and it's a credit to the designers' hard work and determination. With this in mind, I decided myself to apply for one, but subsequently was rejected. After deep thought, I figured, "Why not just create your own art group?", and so this idea has lead me here, to ask you, readers and designers of Abduzeedo, to help out, if you wish, with my new project, which is currently name Epoch. At the moment, I'm creating a forum for people to apply, chat and contribute to the upcoming site at http://cmwiki.co.nr/forums (the name will be changed very soon). I hope to see you there.
