** 2016 World Champions will be found by a panel of professional honorary judges in games. There will be up to 10th place standings for each category.
** Once public voting is complete, the amount of artists in each listing, 3d, 2d and animation, is determined approximately by the total amount of entries in that category. Starting with a base of 3, for every 10 participants over 15 (4 at 25, 5 at 35, 6 at 45, 7 at 45, 8 at 55, 9 at 65, 10 at 75 etc) an additional artist places as a top artist.
** Before World Champion Standings are announced, champions will be contacted in private to conduct an in depth interview about his/her outstanding work. This is a collaborative process between artists and GA.
** A base template will be provided and artists have 1 week to make an iCard design that befits their personal entries. This is a collaborative process between artists and GA.

Soft Deadline: Public voting begins 11:59pm, Eastern Time (click here to view eastern time), : : . : Monday, July 25th, 2016: . : : Artists may hand in late submissions, however, the more late an entry is, the more impossible it is to become a top finalist. (Why? Because each voter may only vote once, which is usually done on day 1 of voting. Hence on day 2, 3, 4 or 5 of voting, there will be no one left to vote for late entries)
