Here are a few guidelines and rules concerning the Monthly Mutation, the contest I hold (monthly, of course) in which participants win — wow! — a $100 Amazon Gift Card. I want to see what you guys look like as fish-people! The Monthly Mutation is a contest in which whoever sends me my favorite picture of themselves as someone infected by the Atomic Sea wins a $100 Amazon Gift Card. You can be a character from the novels or a whole new creation. Specifics: You can be a squid-woman, a lobster guy, a shark-person, whatever. The image can be Photoshopped, painted, a picture of a sculpture you made, make-up like mine, or anything else. It can be beautiful or grotesque, or beautifully grotesque, or comic, or whimsical, detailed or impressionistic. It can be a full transformation, or just partial. If you don’t win but I like your photo, I might place it in the competition for the next month. I also might post a few pictures sent in by people who didn’t win, just to highlight some that I enjoyed. Try to keep it reasonably clean, but if it’s a little racy that’s fine, too . . . just not too racy, please. I’ll post the winner’s picture on my website and on Facebook, and the winner will collect their $100 Amazon Gift Card. I hold the contest the first week of every month, so the next Mutation week will start on the first of next month and go through the seventh. You can submit your image at any point during that week. I’ll announce the winner on the 8th and send out the Amazon Gift Card then. I might pick the most creative, the funniest, the most well-done, or anything else. The same person can win more than once. By submitting you give me the right to use your submission to promote the contest whether you win or not. To participate, you must be my Facebook friend and/or a subscriber to my newsletter. To friend me, go HERE. To subscribe, go HERE. To submit your picture, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Pictures received after the 7th will be considered for the next month’s contest. To find out what all the fuss is about, check out the Atomic Sea series HERE in the US and HERE in the UK.
NOTE: For the month of April 2016, the prize for the Monthly Mutation will NOT be a $100 Amazon Gift Card but instead a gorgeous Atomic Sea fish-man bust by Jim Phillips.
