Hey all! Kingdomkey
here! I'm glad to announce that I am finally starting up the 2014 Sexy Shark Pageant. I thank everyone the left input in the polls a while back.
I'm going to go ahead and open up to allow entries to give everyone ample time to enter.
As of right now there is no set end date, but I am planning for it to be Mid-Summer (End of July, start of August?) I will set something in stone once there are AT LEAST 10 entries. Unless a good portion of the entries are sketches. I don't want to jump the gun and close too soon so its also dependant on the quality of the entries.
1: To Enter or Vote you have to be a member of Gummi-Sharks-Fanclub
You can only vote once. You MAY vote for yourself.
2: You have to have a Gummi Shark to be a contender.
3: Draw a picture of your shark. It doesn't have to be fancy. Can be a sketch. It should however, represent your sharks personality. Make sure to link to the original design by Pie/Or Pie and Co. in the description for reference (Unless you were given permission in the past to make one, in this case link the first picture of them.)
4: You can make more pictures to advertise and get more votes.
5: You can only vote once. Do not use multiple accounts.
6: Fill out the form below to enter yourself and post it below, voting does not start just yet. So wait for the voting form and contestants journal to enter.
7: Make sure to follow the group rules on the front page, you must completely draw your entry on your own. No bases for entries, and NO TRACING.
8: Entries are to be put into the Pageant 2014 folder.
9: You may draw multiple pictures to gather attention and get votes but please choose just one for your main entry to put in the pageant folder when filling out the form unless you are entering multiple characters. Each character gets their own form. (You can enter as many of your sharks as you like.)

All prizes so far are provided by Kingdomkey
, will be adding things donated by others later. If you would like to donate a prize please note me.
Fan Favorite and Judges Choice.
Fan Favorite will be voted on by the group. There will be a First place prize of $10, then $7 for runner up and $5 for third place.
Judges choice will be voted on by myself and maybe others. There will also be a First place prize of $10, then $7 for runner up and $5 for third place.
Then there will be voters prizes as well. EIGHT random voters will receive a $2 prize just for voting. However, you can only win in one category, so if you win fan favorite, judges choice will be picked from the remaining entries. If you place for one of the Fan Fav or Judges prizes, you also may not place for voter prize.
I may offer more depending on how much hype the contest gets, and I'm also thinking of adding a second round of voter prizes where you can vote as your sharks Role play style. XD Not sure if I will but it seems like it could be fun. I will have to gauge how busy I will be during the month in which voting takes place and interest.Note from your Co-founder;
I cannot be more serious about the last rule. I want EVERYONE to enjoy themselves. No drama of any kind please. This is 100% funded by me and others who are giving not only monetarily, but time wise, to let people in the group have a chance to show off their sharkies, and maybe discover friends to interact with. I am doing this simply because for the last year and some months, my gummi sharks have been one of my biggest passions, and I enjoy seeing what other people are doing with their babies, and seeing others be as enthusiastic as me about them. I fondly dream of this community growing into something beautiful.
I enjoy the happiness that creating this species and has brought my buddy Pie, and though it has also had its downs, I wholeheartedly support them, and her visions for them. I ask that everyone respect her rules!
Also, be confident in the skills you have, do not be shy or think yourself unworthy. Everyone is welcomed to join. The three categories are meant to give everyone a chance to win something regardless of "skill". Give your all, bring your charisma, and have a good time!
As always, many thanks to Pieology for letting me host the event!
Let the Pageant begin!
