THE WEEKLY ANTHRO CHALLENGE
Each week the anthro community is invited to participate in a weekly challenge designed to allow anthro artists to exercise their imaginations based on a weekly theme. Please visit the #IamAnthro chat-room, if you would like to learn more about the contest, share ideas, or meet the judges and other participants. If you are unsure of what "anthro" is, please read this article.

THIS WEEK'S THEME
This week's theme is "Stress," chosen by `cooley.
Note: What do you look like when you are stressed? What would you like to do to relieve such stress? I thought this would be a fun theme to make a comical or action image.

We ask that you dev-watch the #anthrochallenge account to stay up-to-date on contest information.
If contestants choose to participate in their own topic, they CANNOT win. This is so contestants cannot slant the contest in their favor.
Contestants can enter as many times as they want in each week, and every week.
Contestants can enter any piece of art that fits the anthro weekly theme, even if it were not originally created for the contest.
There is NO limit on how many times a contestant can win.
Each contestant should include the theme they would like to use (if they win) in their image description, as well as in the note sent to #anthrochallenge.
HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR ENTRY
1.) Upload your submission to DeviantART just as you would submit any of your other anthro work.
2.) Thereafter, please send a note labeled "Contest Submission" to #anthrochallenge.
SUPPORT THE AWC
Every week the challenge will follow the same schedule:
Sunday: Challenge launch and submissions opened. Last week's winner announced as well as new weekly theme.
Monday-Thursday: Time to work on your entry!
Friday: Challenge deadline at 12 midnight on Friday EST, submissions closed.
HOW JUDGING WORKS
Judging is based on individual creativity, not necessarily who can draw the best. There will be a rotating panel of judges for each week, with four teams of judges every month. Their schedule is as follows:
1st Rotation: ~PlainYellowFox, ~Kellisanth, ~arionic and ~Solidfox07
2nd Rotation: !Fox201, ~Syberwolf, and ~LeonaWindrider
3rd Rotation: ~Thumpity, ~krhainos, and ^Katmomma
4th Rotation: `lost-angle, !Foxtrot-wolfwhistle, and ~Takarama
In addition to the aforementioned judges, `skifi, myself, and the AWC staff will step in as judges when necessary.
