FYI
I hope you win many trophies here at Gowns Galore!
How my contests are judged:
1. Based first on the contest theme. For example if the contest theme calls for a Yellow Set, that's what I'll look for first. If the theme calls for a solid yellow skirt, then plaids, stripes, or polka-dots in another color will not do, as it would not be solid yellow. If the theme calls for specific items please be sure to include them in the set, i.e., a hat or odd bag, or a particular style of shoe.
2. Details! Color, style, great use of main theme items, background, layout, complimentary items, and added effects should all work together to make one gorgeous set. I love the set where the artist has paid particular attention to the details that make each set his/her own creative masterpiece. I'm a little OCD in that I like to see shoes paired in sets as opposed to the one going solo! :)
3. Unique Creativity! I check for copied sets! I will try my best NOT to make a copied set a winner. I have been victim to copying and mass item raids and I am not fond of those who choose to play this way. Be your own unique self. Originality is highly valued here! If an original set has 7 items, and your entered set uses 3-7 of those items, you will not be chosen as a winner no matter how beautiful your set is, even if you change the layout or add a few extra items. I consider this copying because the set will not be an original. There are thousands of gorgeous items on Polyvore, please use the search feature to gain your main set items and not from the sets of your poly-friends!
4. You enjoy the contests here and you keep coming back for more! :)
