EDIT: See MORE added prizes below! :meow: :dance:

"Major", in case anyone is wondering, is simply a big contest versus a mini contest, just decided to make it sound more fancy or whatever this time around. :P  Anyway, there was a poll/discussion done quite some time ago to decide what kind of contest to do...the most popular idea was the butterfly contest and that was a HUGE success, and turned out very nicely. But I decided to use all of the ideas, so the next is simply called Cute Rodents with the theme of course being pictures of the cutest rodents you can come up with!

Rodents are a broad family of animals, some examples being:

:bulletblue: Mice
:bulletblue: Rats
:bulletblue: Guinea Pigs
:bulletblue: Squirrels
:bulletblue: Beavers

That's only a small list of examples, so remember any rodent will do!  Just submit what you think is your best quality work featuring any cute rodent you want.  We are looking for major "d'awww" factor, in other words. ;)

Rules are the same as always:

:bulletred: One submission per deviant, and must be a member.
:bulletred: Photos only (this time around, not for art)
:bulletred: Make sure it's a rodent, no other kind of animal.
:bulletred: Make sure all rules of this group are followed.
:bulletred: Submit your entries in the new "Contest- Cute Rodents" folder.
:bulletred: Contest is one month, ending on 3/10.  (I'll put up a countdown as before.)

Founder prizes :iconsilkenwinds:

1st place- 800 :points: and 1 month subbie, big feature.
2nd place- 400 :points: and feature

Member prizes-

~*~


There will be three honorable mentions, I'll give a 10 point bonus to each.

More prizes are possible as affiliates are notified or admin chips in.  Also members are welcome to offer prizes if they'd like.

Have fun everyone, and if you have any questions, please do ask.

Ahh crud I've got a cute rodent that I drew but this contest is for photos only... Will there be one for artwork?

SilkenWinds Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
No I'm sorry but not for this contest. However the next one we do will more than likely be an art/photo contest, but a different theme.

Hi! I would really like to participate, but I don't have any fresh rodent photos so could you please move this one [link] into the contest folder? :meow:

:iconsilkenwinds:
SilkenWinds Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
It would be easier for us if you just withdraw it and resubmit it to the Contest folder, rather than searching around for it, we have LOTS of submissions! :nod:

Was it declined or are you just waiting for it to be accepted? If you're just waiting, we are very busy here and we may not be able to accept it right away. But don't worry, it will be accepted before the contest is over.

Thanks! They look a lot like flying squirrels, which are rodents, so the confusion is quite understandable!

Quick question, Do you count Bunnies as rodents?
Reply
:iconthe-hare:
The-Hare Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013   Digital Artist
Rabbits and Hares aren't rodents but a complete group of their own; Lagomorpha which also includes Pikas (that look like...hamster rabbits xD )

So rabbits wouldn't be allowed since they aren't rodents I guessing ^^'

Squirrels are also a large part of the rodent family too, if you wanted to include that.
