    Please, ensure you read and understand all requirements for this competition. Failure to follow the rules may result in disqualification. If you have questions, start a convo with me.
    This Thread will answer many possible questions you may have.
    • It is recommended you host your image on ImageShack, Photobucket, or Flickr.
    • Not sure how to post a thumbnail or preview image? Read this sticky!
    • Please use a clickable-preview to full-size, not a separate text link for it;
      it makes poll creation much easier!
    • One entry per user. It must be your own work, and never previously used in a comp.
    • Do not ask other users to choose your entry.
    • Absolutely no hybrid, hacked cars, or cars obtained through such means.
    • Mark your FINAL ENTRY clearly, with red text. On H2H weeks, which side, as well.
      Unsure how to? Copy and paste the following:
      [COLOR="Red"]FINAL ENTRY[/COLOR]
    • You may change your entry once. Do it clearly; edit out your previous entry, and
      either post the new one in a new reply, or in place of the original.
    • When submitting, use either a thumbnail or a preview image, linked to the full-sizer.
    • Preview images can not exceed 500 pixels in either direction.
    • A preview image must be representative of the full-size image. Do not add effects to it.
    • Do not post "Honourable Mentions" or outtakes - just your Final Entry, that's all.
    • Winner gets to choose the following week's theme, as well as the Top 20. Every fourth
      week, the poll will be H2H style: entries must choose a "team", leading to two 10-picture,
      4-day polls. The winners from each faces off in a final 48 hour poll.
    • Winners cannot enter in their own theme!
    • The Host may ask for the original image and it must be submitted if so.
      It's recommended to save the original image (preferably in-game) until week's ends.

    Failure to follow these rules will result in ignored entries and/or disqualification!
