How Art Claims will work:
The art pieces will be going up in a members-locked post with comments turned off on Saturday, October 14 around 10-11AM EST so everyone can get a chance to look through the art before the claiming begins. Prompts will be numbered, without the artist's name attached. Each prompt will include a thumbnail (which links to the full-size version), a short description, preferred pairings (if there are any) and ratings. Here is an example:

101.
Rating: G for art, fic can be higher
Pairing(s): Gen or dude/dude
Description: Two dudes in front of a bright window, being mysterious.


Claims Begin:
After 24 hours comments will be turned on and claiming will begin on Sunday, October 15 at 11AM EST. When the Claims Post opens, authors will comment with their top 3 art choices. Mods will reply and inform the author of which piece they get, and the piece will be struck out in the claims post.

In the first round of claims authors will only be allowed to claim one piece of art. Claims will be first come first serve, and the prompts will be crossed out as they are claimed. If there are unclaimed pieces at the end of two days, there will be a second round of claims, wherein authors may claim a second piece to write for.

We cannot guarantee that anyone will get their first, second, or even third choice. Some pieces may be very popular, and it is natural to feel some disappointment if you don't get to write for something that really inspires you. However, please bear in mind the feelings of artists who will be reading the comments to the Claims Post as well; making comments along the lines of "I don't want to write for any of this" or "there's nothing good left" will not make any of the artists feel good. If you've ever participated as a writer in a Big Bang challenge, I'm sure you can understand the anxiety that comes from having your work in a line up with other pieces.

Proxies: If an author cannot comment when they claims post first opens, they may preview the claims in the 24 hour window beforehand and submit their choices to a proxy who will post in their stead. If a proxy is making a claim for themself as well, they must leave two separate comments, one stating their top 3 choices and one stating the top 3 choices of their friend.

Here is what the claims comment format will look like:
LJ Username:
Email:
Choice #1:
Choice #2:
Choice #3:


Multiple claims: Two or more authors claiming the same piece to write a story for will not be allowed until every single piece has been claimed. Only if every single piece has been claimed will we consider opening the pieces up to second claims. Artists may opt their piece(s) out of being claimed by a second author if they wish.

After a piece has been claimed:
Artists are free to contact their author as soon as they see that their piece has been claimed. We will be posting a Author/Artist Matchup Reveals post and as well as sending email notifications to authors and artists, but that will take time for us to do so we strongly recommend that artists proactively contact their authors ASAP.

If you have any questions about the Claim Process, please comment to this post.

This is the post for people who would like to create art for the Inception Reverse Bang.

Artists should submit one or two pieces of art by Sunday, October 8. This art may be a work in progress, a draft, or a finished product. This art will be posted anonymously, along with a a sentence or two about your preferred pairings (if any). Authors will then claim art to write for, similar to the way artists claim authors' summaries in regular Big Bang challenges.

Authors will write a story of at least 3000 words inspired by the art.

Drawings, paintings, digital manips, and fanvids are all allowed as submissions. Art must be at least 400px by 600px, or at least 1 minute in length if you are submitting a fanvid.

It is encouraged that artists have their work reviewed by an art beta. You may refer to our beta sign-up post to contact people who have volunteered to help out, or use your own betas (we will not be assigning betas).

Due to the way art claims are set up, it would be difficult to ensure that an author would be familiar with an additional source of canon.


To sign up, simply fill out the form here.
If, due to privacy concerns relating to Google, you'd prefer not to sign up through the Google form, you may comment to this entry listing your LJ username and email address.

List of Participants: katythereader, ettoby, kaminagi, sagemb_amy, geekbynight, marourin, kateison, nesel, ko_no_yo


This challenge has moved to Dreamwidth. We will continue crossposting to LJ for this round. Everyone who wishes to participate MUST join and watch the community on either platform to ensure they do not miss important deadlines or updates to the challenge. Also recommended is the TRACKING feature (the pin icon in the tool bar) so you'll be emailed updates when new entries are posted in the community.

This is the post for people who would like to write fic for the Inception Reverse Bang.

Authors will be expected to write a fic with a minimum of 3,000 words, based on the art you choose in the Art Claims post. Claims will be first come, first serve.

Fics must be beta read. You may refer to our beta sign-up post to contact people who have volunteered to help out, or use your own betas (we will not be assigning betas in this challenge). inception_beta is another great resource for finding a beta.

Additional note: Due to the way art claims are set up, it would be difficult to ensure that an author would be familiar with an additional source of canon.

Generally: This is a reverse of the usual Big Bang challenge. An artist creates one or two pieces of art, which are posted anonymously and claimed by an author. Authors are then expected to write a short fic (minimum of 3,000 words) based on the art they chose.

Overview: Artists can submit one or two pieces of art by Sunday, October 8. This may feature any pairing (or no pairing) so long as it includes at least one character from Inception. The art will be posted anonymously, at which point authors can claim a piece. Authors will write a fic (minimum of 3,000 words) based on the art they chose.

Schedule:
Sunday, October 1: Artist Sign Ups close

Sunday, October 8: Artists’ works are due
Sunday, October 15: Art Claims

Sunday, October 22: The Big Reveal of Artist/Author Matchups

Friday, November 17: Author Check in
Friday, December 29: Author Check in
Sunday, January 28: Stories due
Sunday, February 4: Posting Schedule goes up

Sunday, February 11: Posting begins


Rules for Artists:
  • You should create at least one new piece of art: a drawing, painting, digital manip, fanvid or other (email the mods if you have any questions). Art must be at least 400 by 600 pixels in size, videos must be at least one minute in length. You must submit this piece by Sunday, Oct 8, and it may may be a work in progress, a draft, or a finished product. You may submit up to two pieces for this challenge.

  • You may not submit art for this challenge that has already been posted elsewhere.

  • This challenge is open to all pairings and genres, so long as it includes at least one character from Inception. Artists may choose to specify what pairings (if any) they envision in the story, as well as submit a short text description of their piece (optional).

  • We will have a post for Art Beta volunteers for artists to contact directly, but having your artwork looked over by a Beta is not required.


Rules for the Authors:
  • Authors must write a fic with a minimum of 3,000 words, based on the art you choose in the Art Claims post. Claims will be first come, first serve. Your fic must be related to the art for which it is written, and it cannot have been already posted elsewhere.

  • The fics must be beta read, and we will have a post for Fic Beta volunteers available for authors to contact directly.


Art Submission Guidelines:
Art submissions should be sent to the community mod email account ireversebang at gmail dot com) by Sunday, Oct 8. Artists may submit up to two pieces of art for claiming in this challenge. There are no maximum size or dimensions for art, though each art piece must be at least 400 by 600 pixels. If it is a vid it must be at least 1 minute in length. Art that is submitted should not be posted publicly before claims take place.

Art submissions may be works in progress, drafts, or finished products. More details on the art submission process will be posted to the community, so please be sure to join and watch the community for updates.

The Claims Process:
Art claims will officially begin on Saturday, Oct 15, though the post will be up 24 hours beforehand so that writers may take a look at all the art before actual claiming starts. The claims post will contain thumbnail previews that link to the full size version of the art and will be accompanied by an optional text description of the subject. All art will be posted anonymously, and claims will be first come, first serve.

The Claims Post(s) will be members-locked, so please be sure to join and watch the community in order to participate. I'd also recommend setting up tracking by clicking on the 'Pin' icon in the lj toolbar to have email notifications sent to you every time there's a new post in the community. You can also follow @ireversebang on Twitter & i-reversebang on Tumblr for updates and reminders.
