    For those of you that missed the last contest, this one's for you! MFK is proud to bring our next twist to the MFK "create your own avatar" contest series.

Members suspected of cutting and pasting pictures, resizing and using other tools will have their submissions disqualified. Once we receive all of the files to the e-mail address below, avatars will be displayed for members to vote on which one they think is the best. Time to steady your hand, get your creative juices flowing and show your MFK Spirit!

    Also, looking at this a bit more closely, I see that there was controversy over last year's contest over whether or not MS Paint was used. I see that in this years' contest, "photo editing program" is mentioned. Is this open to photoshop, illustrator, etc.? If those are allowed, how will the judges enforce the "Brush Tool" and "Pencil Tool" only portion of the contest? Would the use of layers be allowed? I guess I should have asked sooner! Hope to hear something back by Wednesday.

    Guys guys the deadline for entries will come up soon. :( I wanna play but I want to make sure I do it right. I don't want to get the stink-eye from people who think I've cheated! What is and isn't okay?

    Can we use Photoshop this year? Does it need to be MS Paint only? I see that Neoprodigy mentioned 'your software' but does that mean ANY software?
