CONTEST
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Okay, folks it's start the next contest! This time we're focusing on pirates! Now this one is a bit more context sensitive so we're going to have a little more in the way of rules.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


What we're looking for needs to be evident within the picture itself in some capacity.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-A pirate is a nomadic brigand. They travel by sea, sky or space. A ship is essential to them.
-Many pirates are awesomely flamboyant.
-They are prone to over the top action, outrageous parties and powerful declarations of freedom, etc.
-We do love the classic age of pirates, with early gunpowder weapons and cutlasses, wooden ships, hanging out in the Caribbean.
-However, variations are certainly welcome! Examples, include fantasy, steampunk, science fiction etc. However, I need to emphasize that it needs to be obvious that they are pirates!
-Some may be tempted to have them fighting ninja. That's fine. We won't dock you any points for that, so to speak. However, do not assume that it will win you any either.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What we do not want!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-Modern pirates. We're not comfortable portraying modern pirates in a positive light.
-Internet hacking, illegal streaming, etc. No. We're talking bold adventurers journeying for adventure. Not ripping off intellectual properties.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Basically, have fun! Be creative!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Extra info:

Submission requirements

Submission requirements:

• We do not accept photography, photo manipulations or 3D rendering, like G-mods for a example.
• Pictures need to be of quality. We try to be generous when judging these things, but what we look for is effort. If it looks like the person put real effort into the work, that’s usually enough.
• A key thing to remember that the group is Badass CHARACTERS! In this case, a character is an intelligent, tool user capable of manifesting some personality. Overwhelmingly, we prefer that some sort of humanoid be in the picture.
• Something has to be badass about the picture itself. If it’s not self-evident then it’s not badass enough.
What is Badass?
The state of being badass can be a little hard to define. If you’re wondering whether or not a given picture is badass, first look through our gallery. Failing that, here are some hints…
• Does it make you want to say “THAT’S TOTALLY BADASS?”
• Is it METAL? Does it look like it came striding out of a heavy metal ballad?
• Does it look like it’ll kick YOUR ass? Normally this means through physical force, but definitely isn’t limited to it?
• Is it of a picture of someone who had proven their badassery, in real life or fiction? Teddy Roosevelt and Conan the Barbarian both would be suitable.
• Does it feel epic? Does it feel gritty?
Badass is a state of mind ultimately. It’s a refusal to take shit. It’s the force of will to make opposition fall aside.
