Contest Rules: After the Entry Period, there will be two (2) rounds of judging. Winners will be selected based on what the judges find, in their sole discretion, to be to be the most apt, original, and interesting artwork based on the three following judging criteria (“Judging Criteria”):

In the second round of judging, a different panel of judges comprised of developers involved in the creation of the ARMS game will review the eligible entries that advanced to the second round. On or about May 22, 2017, the panel will select six (6) winning entries.
For each entry in the applicable round, the panel will assign points for each of the Judging Criteria. Each of the three Judging Criteria will have the same maximum possible points that can be assigned by the panel, such that each of the Judging Criteria will be weighted equally. The sum of the points for each entry will be the entry’s total score for the Contest. In the first round, the highest total score. In the unlikely event of a tie, the winner will be deemed to be the entrant with the highest number of points in the following judging criteria: Spirit: how well the artwork encompasses your enthusiasm for the ARMS game.
