I'm a little confused by this, so to clarify - there are 8 prizes? or the winner gets one of 8 cintiqs?

and are there any other restrictions on entry to be aware of, beyond using a wacom to make stuff?

Would have been nice for newcomers to Wacom, be welcome as well.

Just my thoughts, thanks for reading.

I'm curious about this - if Wacom decides to allow traditional art then it wouldn't make sense to enforce people to use a wacom product, since I don't think Wacom has any traditional product. I think the vague "Drawcember" is what's confusing people. Inktober is clearly ink, Sculptember was clearly sculpting, so Drawcember sounds like drawing in all mediums.

Hopefully we get clarification on that soon!!

How many winners will there be? and what is the prize exactly? (which Cintq size and such).

Thanks!

The requirement for a tablet is going to be tough for me too.
I lost everything in a flood last year including my tablet so my wife is getting me one for Christmas... but that would be too late for the contest. :(

Also, I don't Facebook or Twitter.  I technically don't Google+ but I have an account.  Is Google+ acceptable?

  Hello.
 Sounds like an interesting contest.  I have a few question :
- What time zone is considered in deadlines?
- Schedule is pretty tight. What if someone loses an internet connection in the evening during the  contest? Would it be legal to post next day or would it already considered as disqualification?
- Which countries are allowed to participate in this contest?

Make sure to read through previous post so you don't get stuck waiting as some of these have been answered already. 

Sharing on your social networks is important, so if you don't have them, my suggestion is to create the ones you can, and if you don't want them delete them after. It's a competition so if the other guy has 3 and you have 2 he has the upper hand. Wacom has a lot of people looking for those hashtags to see who comes up. Like any Challenge there are always strategies that allow you to get ahead. Lots of drawings and lots of sharing is Wacom's main guidelines.

Checking on the medium and missed days with Wacom now. We will have an answer shortly. I think most people in general are going to have a very difficult time hitting the daily drawings period so post every day you can and you will have the advantage.

Make sure to check out other peoples threads and pass on some encouragement as that ranks high with the CGSociety judges as well. We are not always looking for the best art but often the most heart so keep this in mind as a strategy. 

Post a thread with your name in the Wacom #Drawcember forum and use that as your sketchbook thread for easy tracking of daily images.

I dont think Wacom would mind how you drew your images as long as you are spam hash tagging their name all over the place for marketing exposure.

Hi! Just for a bit of clarification: Do we have to make a challenge thread here, or can we use other social media exclusively? (My thread is taking awhile to be approved because I'm new to posting)

Some updates from wacom. 

It's an endurance test... If you don't have a wacom drawing in pen, marker or pencil is ok.

Wacom helped make sure you can hit the mark. You are able to miss 2 days in a row,  beyond that will effect your chances.  If you are a modeler or sculptor wacom wants to give you a fighting chance, daily speed sculpts are allowed.  Wacom is doing their best to make this easy on you and give everyone a solid chance. Really happy to have wacom and members working hard this month.

We will post a list with images of prizes today with general terms and conditions. Good luck.
