    If you modify it so it's only one color then you could enter it yes.

    Would providing a story be a plus for this contest, just becausse it might be fun to come up with a mini fanfic for the symbol you create, and it might make the symbol make more sense, and or be more fun for the participants

    You can post the fanfic in the fanfic section if you'd like but it won't be included in the judging.

    Should we make a name for the faction, or is it based on the image alone?

    Can (or should) it be nameless?

    Should we be posting our entries, or is it a secret type of thing?

    Or maybe, post them at our own risk?

    Just to make sure I'm VERY clear on this, do you mean that you want us to create our OWN faction? Like, I've decided that Ratchet and Prime, joined together by their common tendency to agonize over their own decisions and abilities in the Marvel Comics, have decided to start a group called the Gloomy Furmanites, and create a faction symbol for THEM? Or is it that, say, the Sharkticons, in honor of their leader, Gnaw, have decided that they all need to brand themselves with a really fat version of the Decepticon symbol, and I have to create THAT? Or can it be either?

    Sorry to keep the pestering alive, but I had what I thought was a good idea for one, and now I'm not sure if it's what the judges are seeking.

    A really fat Decepticon symbol wouldn't be very original and would have a poor chance of winning. An original design would have a much better chance.

    Okay, that's not REALLY what I'm asking. :D  I guess I should be more clear.

    Should I:

    a. Create a symbol for a faction that does not currently actually exist (Howlin' Kup and his Wheelie Commandoes)

    or

    2. Create a symbol for a pre-existing faction that is currently bereft of one (The Constructicons, Protectobots, Insecticons, etc)?

    Which is more likely to have a better chance with the judges?

    Thanks!

    Matt

    That was my question as well. Totally new faction? Or a new spin on a current one? Like an updated autobot or decepticon symbol.. Cause I made a faction symbol for a rogue group of Decepticons that chose to follow Galvatron instead of the new leader Scorponoc at the end of Rebirth... It has a style similar to the Bot and Con symbols, but is completely different in design. Would it be ok?

    It doesn't matter what story you are putting behind the design, stories are not being judged here, just the image. It doesn't matter what you call it, who it is for, or if you are "redesigning" an existing faction symbol because it's only the design itself that is being judged.
