As we're all about fan art, fan fiction and more? The Archivist team wants to let you know about **Riot's Polycount Contest!** This is a show of talent where you can compete with many other artists to create some fantastic pieces in hopes of winning a prize, plus the delicious exposure that comes with it. The link at the top includes most of the Q&A but I figured I'd also answer some questions that would specifically come up for our C&C boards.
#Awesome! I'm allowed to submit my custom champion right?
Unfortunately, no. The Polycount contest is a show of fan art and focuses on pre-existing assets in the League universe. Your original champ concept doesn't count according to the rules. :(
#That sucks. What about my skin idea?
That works fine, as it's giving a skin to a champion that exists in League of Legends.
#I don't have a lot of good ideas. Do you think I'm not good enough to enter?
Not at all. Riot and Polycount are judging the **execution** of your idea, not the idea itself. It's possible that the most bland, generic skin ever is taken over the most unique skin ever if the presentation and quality are head-and-shoulders above the rest.
#I can just copy-paste my story/concept/etc to Polycount right?
Nope. All Polycount entries must be completely unique. Take it as a chance to create something new and then port it to the boards. After all, you have all the chances in the world.
#Should I mention boards?
I don't think it's really necessary but if you win, you can totally give a shout-out to everyone here. Best way to let people know some hardcore quality artists/writers/etc. exist here right?
#What's the Deadline?
January 31st, 2018. You got plenty of time to edit, test and revisit your concept in the meantime. Iterate! Evolve! Don't settle for Draft #1 on November 9th!
If you guys have any other questions, go to the [Polycount QA Page](http://polycount.com/discussion/192924/riot-creative-contest-qa). Good luck everyone!
