Voting Thread :
It will be available once the deadline of the competition is reached.
The voting thread will be open for approximately 24 hours.
All participants must vote, of course you can't vote for your entry. Participants who failed to vote will be excluded from the competition.
At the end of the competition, the winners will be announced. The themer who won the first place will then choose a topic & any restrictions for the next competition.




Entry Info :
a. You can use any pictures/styles as long as they stick to the topic & restriction.
b. You can only submit one entry for each TMC.
c. The submitted entry must be NEW, which means it hasn't been released to the public both at mobile9 and other web sites.




Winning Info:
You will earn achievement points for participating in the TMC, regardless of winning or not.
If you won, you will earn extra achievement points, have the respected trophies (gold, silver & bronze) in your profile and have your theme featured.
If you won the gold trophy, you will also have the opportunity to choose a topic for the next TMC.




Important details of voting:
It is emphasized that all participants must vote in order to be fair with everyone, in case any participant fails to vote and his/her theme wins,
it is very unfortunate but that theme will not be recognized to have won.



Voting Example:



1. Alex
2. Stefanie
3. Maria
4. George
5. Kate
6. Anna
7. John

Points are distributed as followed :


1. 7 points
2. 6 points
3. 5 points
4. 4 points
5. 3 points
6. 2 points
7. 1 points




Important :

a. Do not vote "everyone". Points will not be granted to everyone.
b. Do not vote your own theme.
c. It is not allowed to ask or encourage other members to vote for your themes, or 'exchange votes' with other participants. Doing so will result in immediate disqualification.


Guidelines for choosing your votes:


a. Skills/techniques used to make the entry
b. Originality and creativity
c. Fits the given topic/guidelines/restrictions
d. Overall look/quality of the entry



Things you should avoid when voting:



a. Friendship – do not vote for an entry simply because it was made by a friend.
b. Do not vote for a manager/admin/person of authority just to gain their friendship or to try and influence their vote.
We have enough experience to see when another participant created something better than our own.
c. Do not vote for entries you consider "inferior" to your own in the hope of increasing your own chance of winning.

In TMC we have the three Big regular trophies :

a. Gold
b. Silver
c. Bronze





The latest addition of TMC are the Toothy Awards .

Toothy Awards are given only to those who never won a trophy (gold, silver or bronze) in TMC.

Once a themer won a position in TMC, he/she is consider a pro and should aim to compete against the other pros.

For those who are new to theming, Toothy positions will serve as a smaller & more reachable goal to work towards to.

Toothy winners will get separate trophies in their profile.

Gifted, Certified or Legendary Themers are not quilified for the Toothy Awards.

Rising Themers can be still quilified for the Toothy Awards until they won their first gold, silver or bronze regular trophy.





The Toothy Awards are categorized exactly like the Big regular ones (gold, silver and bronze) :

a. Toothy 1st Place
b. Toothy 2nd Place
c. Toothy 3rd Place
