**Official** MMAForum GFX Grand Prix Round 1



Rules:

There will be a max of 16 participants. Everyone will be randomly paired off for the first round and in the event that we have an uneven number of participants then someone will randomly be getting a bye into the next round.

We will give the artists their criteria for the round and then you will have 2 days to get your piece submitted. After everyone has submitted their pieces then separate voting threads will be put up for each pairing and everyone will vote on the best sigs with the winners moving on to the next round.

Sigs can be no bigger then 450X250 pixels.

If you don't submit your entry after 2 days then you automatically lose.

The topic is Favorite Fighter.

Your entries are due Sunday March 22 by 8 pm EST

If you don't have it in by then then you automatically lose.

Prizes:

1. 1,000,000 credits - Credits to bet with

I'm going to run the brackets and matchups like a wrestling tournament is run. The seeds were randomly generated.

The bracket I used has the seeds messed up. This is actually how everyone should be seeded number wise but the matchups on the bracket in my OP are right.

This is a single elimination tournament. You lose and you're done.

If you don't have a matchup in the first round then you are automatically moving onto the next round.

Post your entries in this thread for the first round and make sure you get them in by the due date.

Voting will go up Sunday night after all of the entries are submitted.

If I can look at who everyones voting for doesnt that make the VBookie a little unfair? Its kinda like being able to bet on a fight during the fight.

I'm gonna make the votes private but that's a good point that I didn't think of.

I'll make them now and then have them close when voting starts.

Sorry for the double post, but do these sigs have to be brand new ones or can we submit sigs we've already done?
