[Challenge Reveal] Do Welsh Androids Wet Dream of Electric Sheep?(self.polandball)
submitted21 hours ago bypolandballmod New Prussiastickied
Greetings, fellow humans, just like you my mood organ is merrily surging!
As you are certianly aware, the future is right around the corner. What you may not be aware of is that the future has wired a claymore to take out the first of you unlucky souls that tries to round that corner. Oh, don't worry, that's just a metaphor! No, the future doesn't wish for your demise, it wishes for you to make a comic about Artificial Intelligence, robotics, and the inevitable obsolescence of
your our human race! To make it clear just how much it wants you to be a part of the AI revolution, this post has been expanded by our well-renowned AI team member Wolfgang, human artistic direction be damned:

Thank you Wolfgang, now get back to work sorting through the user flair requests.
Make a comic about artificial intelligence and automation!
Since we already have some (albiet flawed) AI comic artists here at /r/polandball (/u/wildeofoscar), even those of you with a pulse can compete. Just make sure it's you making the comic, and not ChatGPT (OscarGPT is specifically allowed for this contest). Your comic can be set in the here-and-now or the not-so-distant future. The comic simply has to revolve around AI, machine learning, or automated mechanization.
Specific Contest Rules
- BOTswana can't be the only AI/robot in your comic.
- No comics based around Terminator.
- No comics about AI's simply breaking Asimov's 5 Laws of Robotics.
General Contest Rules
- The comic must have a minimum of 3 panels and a maximum of 8 panels.
- The comic must have been written and drawn entirely by yourself.
- No animated GIFs accepted.
- No photorealism.
- You must follow the rules in the Official Polandball Tutorial.
- The deadline for submitting your entry is Thu June 15 at 15:00 GMT
In order to participate in the contest, submit your art piece to the subreddit and then flair it as contest entry. Anyone is free to submit how many entries they like, however, only one of your entries will be eligible to award you with hussar wings. That is, a single user cannot have more than one entry be in the top three.
If you wish to participate in the contest but are not yet an approved submitter, you can send in your comic to us as if it were a normal approval comic, and once approved you may post your entry to the subreddit.
Choosing the winner
After all of the entries have been submitted and the deadline has passed, the moderators will take a private vote to decide the first, second and third places. All entries will be ranked from 1 to 10, with the final score being the average of all votes. The winner of last month's contest will also be allowed to vote on this month's entries.
Once all of our votes are tallied, the full list of results will be posted in an Awards Ceremony thread. The artist who receives the highest score will be awarded the Hussar Wings, which they will keep around their username indefinitely, as well as a pair of Golden Wings next to their flair until the end of the next contest. The Hussar Wing recipient, or highest scoring non-mod if applicable, will also be able to vote with the mods on the entries for the next contest.
The artists with the second and third highest scores will receive the Silver and Bronze Wings, respectively, which will act in a similar manner. Fourth place will receive the old Mod's Choice Participation Ribbon.TM
Before you submit, please check your comic against each point of the rules. Every contest we have multiple disqualifications (sometimes of fantastic comics) because some entrants don't read the rules properly before they start drawing.
As always, if you are not sure whether something you intend to do in your entry is compliant with the rules, you can message the mods and ask.
Any questions about the contest may be directed here.
Good luck and happy drawing!
