� Each participant is allowed only one (1) entry per challenge.
� All entries must be NEW and specifically made for the Chook Scraps The Pen Competition.

� Entries submitted to the challenge cannot be posted in any other gallery as long as the participant is still in the running for Chook Scraps The Pen. However, layouts may be posted after the competition is completed. Layouts may be uploaded to personal blogs so long as you state that it is an entry for Chook Scraps The Pen and put a link back to Chook Scraps.

ELIGIBILITY & LIMITATIONS
The challenge is open to all Chook Scraps members. Chook Scraps design team members are not eligible to join the challenge, however the guest DT members are and eligible to participate.
All submissions must be original designs intended for this challenge. Layouts submitted to the challenge remains exclusive to the Chook Scraps gallery for the duration of the contest. Neither can they be posted, submitted or entered for a website or for publication until the end of the contest period. Each contestant guarantees that their submission is not duplicated from any other publication, individual or copyrighted work. Publication to personal blogs with a link back to Chook Scraps is allowed.
SCORING, JUDGING AND AWARDING OF POINTS.
Each page uploaded in the gallery by the deadline which adheres to all criteria for the round will be awarded five points. Criteria which are not present on the submitted page will reduce the number of points awarded.
Judging by the Creative Chooks will be based on your renovation ability - we will pay particular attention to craftsmanship, attention to detail, appropriate use of techniques, and eye for design.
Each round there will also be Chooks voting - this will be voted on by any member who wants to vote. It will be a 3-2-1 vote (three points for your favourite page, two for the next favourite... etc...). When members vote, they are to send me a PM with their selections.
These points will be tallied. For the Chooks Choice three points will be allocated to the winner towards their competition total. The next highest number of points will receive two points, and the third will receive one point. Chooks who vote will receive an extra point for doing so.
When you upload your pages in the gallery, you need to tell us where you've included the criteria to fit your challenge. If you just say "this is for the buttons and fabric challenge", it doesn't help me if I can't see where your fabric is!
Each round there will be two $5 vouchers, one for the DT choice and one for the Chook's Choice. If that person is the same the second voucher will go to the next person on the Chook's choice list.
Upon completion of the competition the person with the most points will win a $50 voucher to spend at Chook Scraps. $25 will be awarded to second place and $10 to third
