GAAW Christmas Project 2015 - Countdown to Christmas 2!

FAQ
GAAW Christmas Project? What's that then?

It has become something of a tradition that every year our little community comes together and creates something for the entire forum to enjoy over Christmas. In the past we have had collaborative advent calendars with a different piece behind every window every day, two years ago we celebrated the 12 days of Christmas with a new present to open every morning from the 25th onwards, and last year (our first as Super ONM) we had the Countdown to Christmas (original GAAW thread). This year we are bringing back the same successful format again!

Can I contribute/take part?

Yes, definitely! The project will be open to all members, regardless of ability or preferred medium. You could draw some traditional art, take a photo, design a graphic, write a poem or short story, or even record a video or song. If it's acceptable in GAAW it will be acceptable in the GAAW Christmas Project, so go crazy!

GAAW Presents

GAAW's Christmas Project 2015 sees the return of last year's Countdown to Christmas! For the 10 days leading up until Christmas a new piece will be revealed, created by one of you lovely GAAW members. Your contribution can be anything that you like, as long as it keeps with SONM rules, be it a piece of art, a graphic, a poem, a story, a video or even a song!

Simply post here to sign-up and say which day from the following list that you'd like, and then get to work! The deadline for submissions will simply be 3 days before they are due to be put up online, but the earlier you can get your submission in the better. We really appreciate early contributions as it really helps with organisation, and of course we are starting later this year so there is less time to get those submissions in! Remember that submissions should be made by PM to me (OrangeRakoon) so as to not spoil the surprise. If more than 10 people sign up, then the extra pieces will all be revealed on Christmas day, giving a bumper-crop of presents for Christmas itself!

Man, time flies fast! Also I'm very humbled you used my piece from last year as the banner OR!

If it's not too much to ask, may have the 24th please? I have already been planning my piece for this years count down haha. Should be a nice treat!
I am the reason, the answer and the problem.

I might throw something together. I might choose a date if I can come up with something and make a start on it before the deadlines.

Added you both to the 25th at the moment, but that can easily change, especially if there is a spare space to fill and you have already submitted your piece (:

Signing up for now so I can get an idea sorted and started off. May I please be assigned the 23rd?

Also, if I was to submit an animation, how would I go about sending it? I'd like to know beforehand, just in case I decide to work on such a concept as opposed to a still image.

You could send a video via dropbox or similar that could then be uploaded to SONM Network, or we could link to the animation hosted elsewhere if you'd prefer.

Signed you up anyway!

I'll host the animation on my Youtube channel and submit a link to it. After it's submitted and checked, I'll set the video to private until the 23rd. I think that would be an easier process for me.

I would sign up but don't know if I can commit, I'll see how things look later, and even if you're all full up, I'm sure you guys wouldn't turn down an extra piece of art.

I'll contribute something but don't know if I'll get it done before the 15th/16th as I'm having building work done in my bathroom/bedroom starting next week and won't have access to my main computer.
