For archiving: Voting Thread IT'S TIME! For the first ever Froot & Veggies Shoop Contest! this event will be themed for the UFC 246: McGregor vs. Cerrone card! Sign up fallowing the instructions in this thread to enter Sherdog's brand new shoop challenge: The Froot Shoop Contest The fruit and veggies shoop idea was envisioned by our very own froot shoop godfather @Ottawaguy so thank you for that good sir. As a healthy start to 2020, the exposure to this fruit & veggies shoop thread should lead sherbros to consume more produce to start the new decade being healthy so we can stay jacked and land them 10s for many years to come like any proper sherbro will be doing. Instead of simply inserting fruits and veggies into an existing image, you recreate an image using only fruits and veggies like how @Myrddin Wild did for our above contest banner. You will understand it better via more picture examples like this ones: For example here notice that the cage was made of bean sprouts and they were just turned black to fit the design better but still only fruits and veggies used in the shoop: Tiny daikons used for the letters on this one, so be inventive: More fruit shoops examples in this Otto original idea thread but not all entries here are up to code (more on that bellow) we are just using this as an general example of how a fruit and veggies shoops can look and to maybe get ideas and inspiration: https://forums.sherdog.com/threads/the-froot-shoop-thread-shoop-dem-froots-and-veggies.3894311/ If you still don't get it then post in this thread and ask questions or use the private message option with me. To Sign Up for this event post your intentions in this thread and tag @One MMA Fan Make it PERFECTLY CLEAR that you want to enter. Do not just post a .gif as your intent to sign-up. It will be ignored. Do not say "IN" or anything else that can be misinterpreted. "I want to sign up @One MMA Fan" would be a good response. And I'll PM you and add you into the contest. Check the bottom of the OP to make sure you are added to the contestants list!! This is your responsibility to make sure. If you don't see your name in the contestant list and you see contestants being added after you have signed up, then @ tag or quote @One MMA Fan in this thread. Depending on the number of people entering the competition we will decide at the end of the sign up process how many threads and contestants we can have/accommodate in this competition so most likely we will be using the first come first served situation for this public sign up process depending on the spots remaining and based on forum limitations of maximum 20 pictures/shoops in a single post and correlation to multiple threads and other logistic/administrative things that we have to take into consideration for the best possible scenario. So just a heads up some of you may end up as substitutions/alternates but of course we will try to accommodate as many contestants as possible and be practical in doing so too. The Competition Rules: THESE ARE THE RULES AS OF RIGHT NOW. THEY ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE. Note that anything typed above is also part of the rules. First and foremost, at all times you are responsible for knowing the rules in the OP's of the contests. No excuses. Anything added to Contestant PM's will be considered part of the rules. Fruit and veggies & nutritious and commonly accepted edible plants for human consumption only! No meat!!! no processed food like bread, no grocery bags, utensils etc. Your shoop shoop has to be made from fruit and veggies. No external images are allowed. A gradient or colored background is allowed. It's only "real" fruits.... no drawings of fruits or veggies or computer created likenesses. Fruits and veggies and herbs can be cooked (french fries for example are accepted). Sauce or gravy or anything in the picture that isn't a Froot/Veggie is not allowed. Herbs and spices based on plant product are allowed. Static images only. No gif Single frame. No storyboard Shoops. A storyboard is a multi-frame image. You are allowed to alter the shape, perspective, size, color and texture of the fruit or veggie. For example, changing the curve of a banana or making it red. Stick to actual fruits and veggies, so no cans or bags.If you're making something that doesn't resemble fruit or veggies... be prepared to prove otherwise to your peers and show your used method to our shoop experts. Any text must be made from the fruits or veggies. No using regular fonts in any way even as a stencil. No reference photos will be posted with your entry, as the shoop should speak for itself (like for example how we used the Muhammad Ali reference photo then fallowed by the actual fruit shoop.. that was only so you understand what we are doing here). Your entry must be UFC 246 fight card related. Minor brushing is allowed like we see on the Shadface froot shoop. We consider that changing the color of the fruit, so it is allowed. Note that all times and dates will be for USA East Coast (EST). Entries will be due 72 hours after UFC 246 PPV start time. Voting will start shortly thereafter and last for 3 days.
