DIscussed at Board meeting. Change "rules" of the EEAC. Update website's EEAC PURPOSE/INFO page and add note to 2005 EEAC CONTEST RULES & PRIZE LISTING page. All prizes need not be awarded if the judges determine that the number or quality of entries do not warrant it.

07/15/2005

Appeal mailed to artists.

07/14/2005

The numbers of entries is very low.

Currently it's listed on the ToFF website that past winners are not allowed to enter the Contest. Babcock and Dehner have talked about this and agree that the Foundation should open the Contest up to past winners being allowed to enter the Contest with the only exception being the past Grand Prize winners are not eligible.

The reasoning behind this is if an artist won 2nd place, he or she may want to strive for first place or Grand Prize placement. As long as they have not started selling work, Babcock sees no reason why they should be excluded from attempting to win the Grand Prize title (once an artist has won Grand Prize placement there really is no place higher up to go in the Contest and at that point hopefully they will feel the validation of their art and if they so choose be at a level where they are able to sell works).

  • Change "rules" of the EEAC?
  • Update website's EEAC PURPOSE/INFO page?
  • Add note to 2005 EEAC CONTEST RULES & PRIZE LISTING page?
  • Send out a letter to past winners letting them know they may enter the Contest (thus encouraging them to strive to grow as an erotic artist)?
  • DIscuss at Board meeting?
