Dominance War, a non-business entity that is run primarily by a single insane artist, will be Donation based. Donations, if sufficient, will help add additional features like a public voting system for main challenge, student listings, Animation Category, Cinematic Category (DW6?), etc, and also help keep the organizer afloat during the functions of this massive event.
"Any human can break during a certain vital moment. Nobody is insured from it, but we are all at war - we mens. We should be iron. You were present iron warrior Fred, don't allow itself to "fuse" to anybody else. It is necessary to battle and win throughout all of life... Think once again. Alone, you have begun a great cause, don't betray us and don't throw it out into another's recycle bin."

With the monetary concerns, removing corporate sponsorship seems like a curious decision.
Anyway, I imagine I'll still give it a go. It's a good incentive to focus on a new piece of work and given I never finish in these things, it won't matter if the judging takes a bazillion years.

So you want the artists to donate to the competition, so that they can try to win their money back?

I have no problem with supporting things if I see something I like the look of. An accordian player on the street, a forum, a competition. I know you're not serious, but if you were to put hard work in and make a big popular competition then I would put some money into it. Donations aren't mandatory.

To be honest I was thinking about it back when Fred released that 10 page story.
I think I'm going to do some research and post some information in the General Discussion thread, but it would essentially be there to show that you don't need $1000's to make shit work.
3. To reduce workload and correspondence requirements, paid corporate sponsorships will also be eliminated.

It makes perfect sense that he wants to get rid of the corporate sponsors. The prizes they entrust him with are a huge logistical undertaking and a liability. He has to be responsible for the accounting and stewardship of those items. I'm sure the sponsors lay heavy expectations on him handling those items and they probably make him sign an legal agreement that makes him legally liable for those items. If something happens, it's his ass on the line. That's a lot of pressure to deal with. In addition to that, you have a bunch of whiny people complaining to about how they hate the way he's running a competition he created without being asked and without demanding anything from us.
Without Fred, there wouldn't have been a Dom War at all to bitch about. This guy did a really nice thing for us and an bunch of mal-contents nearly ruined it because they don't like the way it's run. He didn't ask anything from us before. That's what the sponsors were for. He did it for us and some are being extremely ungrateful. He risks and sacrifices a lot to make this happen. If anyone should be blamed for making this too big, it's us. As we pushed the envelope for art, we made this contest bigger and bigger. Our popularizing this competition made it what it is today, not Fred.
Bring on the hate and expletives.... *puts on flame-proof suit.*

if you subscribed to a magazine and then found that they took your art and printed it making money off of it's subscribers, would you be offended? Or would you be honoured that this magazine that has taken so much time and effort to publish a quality print has chosen you?
