Lion King Challenge Clarification
This dot point is taken directly from the challenge guidelines:
- You may use any characters from The Lion King franchise, but mashups, parodies, or references to any other characters are not allowed.
Yet, I see many submissions up for scoring that I would categorise as either a mashup or a parody or even both at the same time. I get the feeling that this might be a case of, 'you can submit it for scoring, but they'll never pick an idea like that' deal, as I think can often happen in big brand challenges.
I may have an idea that isn't just a lion head set against a rising sun, but I'm not sure I want to spend time on it if it has no chance of ever being picked. Long story short, what exactly constitutes a parody? I'm hoping it just means don't denigrate or lampoon beloved characters just for shits and giggles.
