Welcome to the Battle of the Month! This is the sign up thread, meaning that if you wish to enter, you must post within the thread asking to be added to the list. All other posts that are off-topic or not BOTM related will be deleted. Here is the basic set up of the Battle of the Month.
Similar to the Signature of the Week, the Battle of the Month spans over a 1 month period, and consists of up to 4 separate sections of the contest. There is a maximum of only 16 (sixteen) participants and the first theme thread will be posted within the first week of the month of May, or if the 16 participant quota is met.
The BOTM works in this way: The 16 Participants enter in 1 on 1 duals with signatures corresponding to the theme. Contrasting the Signature of the Week, this contest’s winners are determined solely by the decision of a panel of Judges. When the judges have made their selections of winners, 8 shall remain, another theme is opened, and they battle again. Then 4, then 2, then 1 final victor will be selected.
Similarly to the SOTW, you are given a 1 week grace period after the Sign Up has closed, along with a theme. After the week is up, the entries will be pitted against each other in their duals, and no one other than the Participants who signed up may enter.
The end of the Sign Up is May 1st, OR unless all entry spots have been filled.
1) You are only allowed to enter yourself; you cannot act in favor of, or enter anyone else within this contest. There is a maximum of only 16 participants.
2) All questions, comments and concerns about the BOTM contest should be done within their respective threads, or directed via PM to Observer or Ellipsis.
3) There is a zero tolerance policy for this contest; if you do not send an entry before any due date in any theme, you are forfeiting the contest. Observer and Ellipsis are not responsible to for reminding you of missing a deadline, or your entry not following any rules. SO DOUBLE CHECK YOUR WORK.
