Monthly Sketch Contest (2009)
The Monthly Sketch Contest (2009) began as a themed sketch thread at 3A hyperboards where Ashley Wood would name a theme and participants would posts their sketch interpretations of that theme. After the first couple months, the baton was passed on to 3A Forums moderator eseffinga. Figures gifted to winners were either Blanc de Plume or DIY de Plume (at ThreeA's discretion), but a gifted figure was not guaranteed every month; and was reserved for exceptional entries.
Similar to the Monthly Photo Contest (2009); Due to member complaints, as people expected a "prize" every month, the contest was closed in August 2009 and converted into a monthly themed sketch thread with no more gifts.
