BTW, just as a reminder to everyone, you are not allowed to use Photoshop to change the actual MOC itself in any way.
Is this also true for digital entries? because I was planning to add shield, flag, torso decals with PS because LDD doesn't allow me to add the decals on the pieces.
You may add shield, flag, & torso decals to digital entries because we allow "Custom stickers may be used for minifigure torsos, shields, and flags."

The admins will discuss this and get back to you.

I would recommend not using builds from other categories as backgrounds of your custom figure entries. These are a distraction and not in the true spirit of the category. The top custom entries are always easily apparent due to the creator's skills. Check out previous CCC winners for examples. Backgrounds in the winning entries were not necessary.

Yes. You are allowed to use other image sites such as MOCpages. Keep in mind that you must follow the image size rules and maximum number of images on your MOCpages link.

Entering the minimum of six categories is the qualifier for Master Builder eligibility. Once that is accomplished the top six entry scores will be counted regardless of category.
