Perhaps you need help running an event. Perhaps you want to be part of one. Or maybe you just need a partner to help you compete. Regardless, this section is for you!

Read these lists before you send us anything! For example, if you need judges and someone is already posted here as a volunteer judge, ask them directly and simplify everything for everyone. Also, once your needs are met, please let us know so that we can remove your name.

***If you want us to add a listing, please send the group a note. DO NOT reply to the journal with an ad request, as those tend to get lost very easily and there is a good chance we won't see it. Thanks.***

:new: - New posting!

:teamwork: LOOKING FOR A PARTNER: Don’t want to compete alone? No problem!  Send us a note with your name, skills and experience (if possible, link to examples), type of event you wish to participate in, and what kind of partner you need (proofreader, sketcher, CG artists, script writer, etc).

    Seeker: TiredTom
    Event: Any OCT in which allows animation as a competing medium.
    Skills: Animation. I've studied animation for a couple of years as a hobby and would really like to apply my knowledge and compete in an OCT. I have no finished works but theory study I've completed in my spare time. Here are a couple of older pictures I've drawn: link and link
    Looking for:  A Co-pilot. I'm looking for a writer/ artist/ studying animator or storyboard artist. I excel in a group, and would like to collaborate with an individual to take part in my first OCT. I like to think of myself as a multifunctional individual. I would love to meet someone likeminded.

    Seeker: Anastasia0512 / Redmere / Emilisia
    Event: TheDarkAgeOCT
    Skills: I am skilled in story/creative writing, but I'm not that good at drawing. I haven't had any experience, but I have done writing before and I can create OCs and bios.
    Looking For: An artist. Anyone is ok, I don't mind anyone whoever can help me I appreciate!

    Seeker: Android3000
    Event: Divine-Inferno-OCT
    Skills: Writing. I also do well at making new characters and OC bios.
    Looking For: An artist to join me in the tournament as my partner. What you would be doing is creating splash pages, which are illustrated pictures to go with my story. You would have an OC to go alongside mine, and would have an say in how we would go about telling the story for each round. Looking to fight on the side of humanity for this (see OCT). This is the kind of work that me (and the judges especially) are looking for.… Quality is king, here; we'll be competiting against entire comics. Send me examples of your work, please. I'm doing these OCT's to take my writing more seriously, so anyone who's passionate enough about their artwork may be conisdered. Please have the time to spare. Let's not forget to have fun, either! XD
    Payment: 2000 DA points (half at the start, the other half upon either winning or losing the OCT.) Should we win, prizes will be divided amongst us equally.

:worker: LOOKING FOR WORK: Want to volunteer or sell your services?  Send us a note with your name, skills, and experience as well as what type of events you’d like to help with.

Tip: If you wish to judge but haven't before, you can still advertise your qualifications.  Go over a fight and post your critiques plus verdict as a deviation, scrap, or journal.  Then send us the link. While you're at it, why stop with just one fight?

    :new: :bulletblue: Inheri7or is looking for writing or voice-acting work.
    SKILL 1: WRITING<bt> EXPERIENCE: I'm working on my debut novel currently. In March of 2014, I had the opportunity to attend an online class with real agents and pitch my idea. The feedback was as follows:
    "The query is well-crafted and compelling--almost pitch perfect.  Great title, word count is on the mark (when you're finished, that is), the story is unique and it's well summarized. The writing itself is vibrant and exciting.  The opening bears the sense of immediacy I look for, the main character engaged in an action that characterizes her and describes the world we're in.  I love this visual style--e.g. your description of [[Femal Protagonist]].  Just lovely.  This is truly a wonderful pitch and I have no doubt you'll find a fantastic agent once you're finished with the work. I myself look for sci-fi along the lines of Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go or Karen Thompson Walker's Age of Miracles.  But, again, I know another lucky agent with a taste for scifi in this style will snap you up in a jiffy."
    I specialize in professional and clean story arcs, including character development, believable dialogue, immersive worldbuilding, pacing, tone, and much more. Can do scripts or stories.

    EXPERIENCE: I have a bit of experience in regular acting, mostly through local productions of musicals, but my forte has always been with my voice. This was acquired from hours spent in my yard as a child (I'm 20, by the way), pretending to be every character in a cast and repeating lines over and over until they sounded exactly right. Sometimes I still do, and I swear people would think I was crazy how much I talk to myself in other voices. But I'm not insane. I think.

    I can also sing, with various awards at a state level and years of choral experience, but I don't know how useful that's going to be.

    My preferred role is usually anything villainous or slightly sinister, though I can take on a more neutral or even "good" role. Here's a sample of a voice test I did for the main antagonist of my debut novel. I was going for a very Tony Jay sort of feel (much like the elder god from the Legacy of Kain games).

    :bulletblue: PsychedAngsty is looking for lots of work.
    SKILL 1: Writing
    EXPERIENCE: Writing is something that I can confidently say I have had a lot of experience with. Doesn't matter if it's in script form or story form. The trouble is that my work is not being recognized, since everyone thinks I'm too young (WHAT?!). I'm writing fanfics and original stories all over the place, I'm developing scripts for webcomics and voiceovers that I am planning to debut, and I've actually written scripts for a few unofficial plays (meaning they were in school or just some things my church friends and I just slammed together and performed in front of an audience--that kinda stuff).

    SKILL 2: Character Development
    EXPERIENCE: I spend most of my spare time daydreaming, and as a result, I've ended up coming up with A LOT of character bios, fandom-related or not (but more often not). I've actually got them all type down on my computers. Most of them aren't even being used, though, so if anyone wants to pick up the descriptions, they're more than welcome! (You won't find any of them online, though). While drawing doesn't even come close to being my forte, there are a couple of concept art sketches in my gallery. (Unlike most, I do plan to used them.) There's proof that I do draw my anonymous characters from time to time. Let me repeat: TIME TO TIME. I consider my artwork terrible, so I don't do it often. If an artist completely out of ideas for creating an OC wants help from me, I'd be happy, but the sketches are up to them. I'm only going to be sending one along if AND ONLY IF I was inspired to draw said OC along the way.
    SKILL 3: Voice-Acting
    EXPERIENCE: While I haven't built up much experience, I've consulted my parents multiple times on being a voice actress. They don't think it'll be good for me to earn a living that way, but they think it's a wonderful hobby. And I intend to keep that hobby. I'm currently voicing a few works, actually (without my parents' knowledge). I'm working on Lyra Vision's (via YouTube) "Ipsywitch Comic Dub", and I've auditioned for a Zoophobia voiceover (I don't think the results came out yet. I'm also planning to direct a voiceover of "Sugar Bits" by, with me as Ginger and as Cupcake and Bo (but I am VERY SHORT on other voices, so I'm still searching for help in that aspect). I'd be willing to voice anybody, AS LONG AS THE CHARACTERs I AM ASKED TO VOICE ARE FEMALES. That's a biggie, because I can't do male voices (believe me when I say I tried).

:bulletblack: ...already have approximately 2/3 of its desired competitors.
Here are some common bracket sizes along with the minimum number of competitors needed before a Shortlist application will be considered:

12: 8
16: 10
20: 14

:bulletgreen: How many more auditions/competitors are needed before competition can begin.
:bulletblack: Accepted storytelling media.
:bulletblack: A short description that sets it apart from the rest, preferably no more than three or four sentences long.
