Competition: [COU] Tipping Point: The Briefing (Art)

[COU] Tipping Point: The Briefing (Art)


It is crucial, especially in the chaos of war, to ensure that people are making informed decisions. Most species in the galaxy are visual beings, and it has become standard practice across the galaxy for military planners and intelligence analysts to present their arguments through carefully designed visual media.

As part of your contribution to the war effort, you are to prepare a product to help Odanite leadership grapple with the evolving situation.

Submission and Grading

Alone or with a partner, create and submit one of the following:

  • A tactical map in .pdf, .ppt, .pptx, or .odp format. Your goal is to inform O.E.F. commanders about the situation near an Odanite facility of your choice (the Jedi Praxeum, Sky Breach Base, or Trepus Station). You may focus on the geography, troop disposition, an attacking force, or anything else you think might be important. Examples: 1, 2, 3.
  • An intelligence dossier in .pdf, .html, .png, or .jpg format. Your goal is to present to High Councillor Archenksova the status, goals, and threat posed by any of the non-Odanite characters mentioned in the Tipping Point launch fiction. Note: .html files must be submitted in a .rar or .zip archive along with any .css files or images so that the finished product can be viewed properly. Example.

Regardless of which option you choose, your submission must include multiple graphical elements (images, diagrams, logos, etc.) as well as text. The two should work together to clearly communicate information to the viewer.

  • If multiple members collaborate on a submission, only one needs to submit it. You must put all contributors’ names and PINs in the submission box, alongside a quick note describing their contribution to the finished product.
  • The graphical components may be whichever media you like, including but not limited to: drawing, painting, digital art, photomanipulation, rendering, or sculpture.
  • You are encouraged to include the names and pins of any other characters you depict in the submission box.
  • Submissions generated through a doll maker or other software is allowed, as is the use of images found on the internet. However, you must provide the source of any third-party images or image generators in the submission box.

Entries will be graded according to a unique rubric, available here.
