Just wanted to ask what you meant by fan characters. I was drawing a character from a series I have that is inspired by a work but is not part of its universe nor has any of the same characters.

Just out curiosity. What if the entry features famous works of art (say a famous, but stolen painting/statue/etc) would that still be allowed or is that something that would preferably left out?

Rule No. 13 should strictly answer your question. :)

But in favor of 'fairness', we apply the presumption of regularity for all the entries being submitted. Contestants are by default considered matured enough to read the rules and apply pure honesty and originality in making their entries.

As for the entry being allowed, unless a protest has been sent to us under Rule No. 17 or we ourselves notice the irregularities, it's sad to say that that entry will most likely make its way into the entries folder and onto the voting journal.

Would it be inappropriate to submit a work called "the King of whips and chains"?

Is God or Deity equivalent to King/Queen? I mean, Gods/Deities are Kings/Queens in a way, considering people revere them/they dictate the people like a King/Queen.

You are free to interpret the theme in any way you want.

Do take note however that we've already taken Gods/Deities in one of our past challenges > [link]

Can the prize points be given to the winner in the form of payment? I mean, using that feature from deviantart that allows the points to be transfered to real money after a while :)

We haven't tried that before! We'll discuss it and get back to you as soon as we can.

Have you decided something about the earnings feature? Like paying the points to the winner via earnings, so he/she can transfer it to money afterwards. I had asked it when you announced the contest, a while ago.
