Welcome to Polyvore Academy! This is a battle group. Please read through all of this before applying.
There are four dormitories. When you apply, you'll need to decide on which one you want to be in. Information about the four dormitories is here: http://www.polyvore.com/which_dormitory_do_you_belong/set?id=67715826
Depending on how many people apply, I will put a certain number of people in each dormitory.
There will be 11 rounds. You will have two weeks for each round. If you don't enter two rounds in a row you will be eliminated and replaced. You will be graded on your set each round ( /20 for set, and /20 for set description). You cannot enter hacked sets or sets made with templates (unless it is a template that you created). You will get additional points for being 1st (5 points) 2nd (4 points), 3rd (3 points), 4th (2 points), and 5th (1 point), so you can get up to 45/40. I will make report cards with your grades on them after each round. After 2 rounds, I will also find your average grade and find it again after the 3rd and so on, and after the first round ends, I will find your dormitory's average grade and again after the 2nd and so on, so that you know who's in the lead.
You can also get extra points for yourself and your dormitory by doing extra-curricular activities. I will make another group for this. There will be 10 contests over the competition, with 2 weeks for each one. I'll give you several options for each one, such as:
I will give you a character (that I'll make up) and you will need to make an outfit for them.
I'll give you a theme and you'll need to make an icon.
I'll give you a movie and you'll need to make a set based on that movie.
and so on...
Feel free to leave suggestions here: http://www.polyvore.com/suggestions_questions_more/set?id=67721323
You can make one set per contest. If you enter at least 10/10 of the contests, you will get 10% added to your average grade at the end of the competition, increasing your chances of winning. If you enter 9, you will get 9%, and so on. You won't be graded on your extra-curricular sets.
