Recently I entered a local poster contest. Everything was good up until I submitted my design. It seems the other artists are all gathering up and voting 1 star on my design on a 5 star basis. The winner is judged by highest rating not highest votes, so they are doing this in order to win. The artwork they are submitting alone is on a much lower level then mine and I believe this is why.
So if I can get your guys help to go here and vote 5 stars on my design I would really appreciate it! I don't mind loosing a contest, but a contest that is played like this is something else.
It will take less then 10 seconds but mean a great deal to me. And voting is allowed 1x every 24 hour period. So if you can keep going back and making votes I would be in your debt!
You know, normally I hate this sort of vote-begging post. However, I checked it out, and your piece is so clearly superior to any of the others it would be kind of ridiculous for it not to win.

Yeah I know, I didn't really want to come to this site and ask for votes as I know this place is on a professional level. But like you said it's ridiculous to loose to those submissions.
And yeah I am not trying to be cocky at all, I have entered and lost contests before and accept it as work of much higher quality was submitted, but this time it's irritating to see myself loosing to these people heh.
I can't believe that reaper guy next to you has almost as many stars?! Travesty! Voted!
Thanks guys, this means a lot! The contest ends on the 29th, so I am just asking people to vote every day because all the other contestants vote me down so they can win heh.
The site lets you vote once every 24 hours.
I really don't understand those editor's picks. Are the artists friends? Hotties?
Wow, that's just a jerk move on the part of the other competitors.
Yeah I know, I thought this was gona be a fun art contest so I did a project and submitted but then they start pulling all that shady business. So I guess now it's desperate times.
I literally said, "Ehhh!" to the reaper picture.
I mean...DAMN THAT'S BAD!

You got my vote. Good luck.
Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!
Talk about not respecting your superior... your fellow contestants are immature dicks.
--Wait, whut? --
Hey guys I just wanted to come in and thank you for all the support so far! The contest is ending on the 29th so I still have 8 days of voting to go. So if you guys can keep voting once every 24 hours I would really appreciate it!
Thanks again everyone!!!
u got my vote...
Thanks for the votes so far guys!
Yeah they only want to use one poster though, not sure what happens to everything else.
I think $500 as a prize is still good money personally.
Holy Christ, those are terrible. You've got my vote.
