Christmas is just around the corner and we want you to express your creativity and tell us what Christmas means to you through the eyes of Castle, Beckett, Lanie, Esposito, Ryan, Gates, Martha and Alexis (if you feel you "must" include Gina, Meredith, or any other character, be our guest --but if you decide to include he-who-must-not-be-named, do so at your own risk!)


Rules are pretty simple:

-All entries will be annon and will be posted both in our tumblr page and here at the site

- Graphics have to be made specially for this competition. There will be 2 categories: Christmas card and general graphic.

-We intend to use the graphics to create our own 12th precinct 2013 Castle Calendar, so the artists entering the contest must agree on us posting them here as part of the calendar.
Once the winner is announced, the graphics will be also released to their original creators so they can post them in their own sites (You will be asked to add "Participant / Winner of the 12th precinct Xmas graphic contest" in a caption when you post your work elsewhere)

- Each artist is allowed to send in only one graphic for each category

- The graphic or Christmas card should include at least one of the Castle characters and should be about  Christmas

- All techniques are accepted (handmade or electronic)

- We won`t post original graphics. You can use generic backgrounds and photos of any member of the cast that are out there in the internet, as long as they haven`t been previously edited by someone else

-Artists who enter the contest will be asked to send in at least 2 screen caps and/or photos of your work in progress wether it`s made in a computer or manually, so bear that in mind while creating your work of art!

- The size of the graphic should be letter sized or A4

- Collaborations are allowed as well as mixed techniques

- Contributors to the 12th Precinct site can not compete

- Judges can not compete

-  Deadline for sending your graphics is Tuesday December 18th 10PM Eastern Time (Castle time)

- The top three from the judges' vote will be announced after the judges made their decision

- The public vote will open starting December 18th, when all graphics are in

-Winners will be announced before Christmas

- Artists who send in graphics agree that will publish their stories on the site and on our tumblr page, under the Twelfth Precinct account

-Artists  who send in stories agree that they will do everything in their hands to make sure judges can't find out who created which graphic. (No publishing on other sites, until the winner of the competition is announced on this site)

- We want to include a prize for this competition, so send in some ideas along with your work!

Don't forget to mention your name, your signature, your Twitter-name, the title of your graphic and the category you are competing at.

The moment that I met you, my life became extraordinary. You taught me to be my best self, to look forward to tomorrow's adventures. And when I was vulnerable, you were strong. I love you, Richard Castle. And I want to live my life in the warmth of your smile and the strength of your embrace. I promise you I will love you. I will be your friend and your partner in crime and in life, always. - Kate Beckett The moment we met, my life became extraordinary. You taught me more about myself than I knew there was to learn. You are the joy in my heart. You're the last person I want to see every night when I close my eyes. I love you, Katherine Beckett. And the mystery of you is the one I want to spend the rest of my life exploring. I promise to love you, to be your friend, and your partner in crime and life, 'till death do us part, and for the time of our lives. - Richard Castle
