Hi everybody, :iconblizzmaster: back again with 2016's summer contest!

The weather is warming up, and champions everywhere are looking for ways to stay cool in the sweltering heat of summer. This is obviously easy for some champions, like Anivia who is LITERALLY MADE OF ICE, but other champions don't have it so great, such as Brand who is on fire. All the time. This year, we are looking to the artists of this group to detail just how some champions "beat the heat".

Submissions to the contest will depict the champions of Runeterra finding creative, effective ways to stay cool in the hot weather of summer. Here are some guidelines to follow when creating your contest submission:

:bulletgreen:The more creative and interesting your idea is, the better. Going for a swim works, sure, but champions have awesome equipment, abilities and powers they could use to help cool off even better!
:bulletyellow:There must be 2 or more champions in your submission. Things like water balloon fights or getting ice cream are much more fun with friends, and that's no exception in Runeterra.


:bulletyellow:NEW: Entries must be entirely consisting of characters, items, creatures or the like from the League of Legends game. Due to this being a prized contest, no crossovers from other games or franchises so that everyone knows what they're allowed to work with.
:bulletgreen:You must be a member of this group to participate.
:bulletyellow:1 Entry per person.
:bulletgreen:MUST be a new creation by you, no old submissions will be accepted.
:bulletyellow:All mediums are accepted! This means literature, cosplays, crafts, drawings, 3d artwork, comics and animations are all valid entries for this contest.
:bulletgreen:For literature there's a limit of 1000 words.
:bulletyellow:If you decide to do a comic, the limit is up to 6 panels.
:bulletgreen:You may add a 1 paragraph (3 to 5 sentences) explanation of what your work represents in the description.  If you do this, please indicate that it's the description for your artwork.
:bulletyellow:No mature content, keep it PG 13.
:bulletgreen:Judges for this contest cannot participate. But prize donators can!
:bulletyellow:Summoners from all servers may enter.
:bulletgreen:Work will be judged primarily on CREATIVITY and ORIGINALITY. The 5% is presentation.
:bulletyellow:If your entry doesn't follow the rules, it won't be eligible for the contest.
:bulletgreen:Submit your contest entries to the Featured folder, otherwise it won't be counted as an entry for the contest. (the folder will be opened for this purpose)
:bulletyellow:Write in your description that your work is for the contest being hosted by :iconleagueoflegends:. Otherwise it will be declined from the Featured folder.

Start Date: June 1st, 2016
End Date: July 5th, 2016, 11:59 PM MST

A lot of your folders are closed.…
Zeeria Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2016
If you mean Fan Art folders 1 to 7, that is because they reached the submission cap. Try submitting to Fan Art 8.

Is there a reason for rejecting my work? I'm quite sure it didn't violate any rules. I'll try again in case there was a mistake. If refused again, but without a proper reason, will seek answer. 
Zeeria Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2016
Generally people submit to the wrong folder or miss tiny details like mature filters and such. But your Lulu drawing should be accepted now since it's been submitted to the right folder.
