As I have mentioned through my status updates and polls, I would like to start a little mini summer contest to go through the month of July So I am going to list my plans so far here and what I still need and want and see if I can get input before I kick it off!
I just want to have fun and see what sort of creations people can do!
I still have plenty of points so I thought I would do three places:
200 points for first place
100 for 2nd
50 for third
Feature for everyone who enters with the top three most prominent in my journal
Of course if anyone wants to contribute to this, they can
Judging should take place no later than a week after the deadline
I am counting on passing my exam and being in fall classes so I will be busy in August.
Which means this should start Soon!!
Participants will be required to share the official contest journal
And mention it in their art description
Entries should have some description of how it fits the theme
Entries should be new and original work
Any suggestions of what else should be required are welcome!!
What I still Need:
I would like to co-judge with two others: you don't need experience, but it might help if at least one of us does! comment or note me if you are interested!
Prizes are always welcome especially if someone wants to feature the winners or contestants!
Suggestions For Rules Would be Welcome!
A specific Theme:
I want it to be related to summer but I don't want it to be that vague
Some Ideas I have are:
Heat Haze/Summer Haze
Breath of Summer
New or Different Ideas Welcome Or Just vote on the one You like best in the comments! I will be making a poll for this too so if you have any ideas, now's the time to mention it and tell your friends to vote for it!!
Finally Most Importantly: Genre Types
I made a poll about this but it was very split! With only Poetry getting more than one vote. I think poetry will be in since it got that extra vote but I don't want to make this only poetry but I also don't want the genres to be so broad that it's difficult to choose! (If you would like to break that tie please vote for one of the three I am considering (listed below) here: actsofart.deviantart.com/journ…
OR cast your vote in the comments OR note me!!
I am thinking Poetry and one more category of the three tied genres from my poll please help me by picking a favorite, if no one picks, or if it is still tied over the next few days, I guess I will just do a random pick somehow!ProseTraditional Art
Participants!Okay you don't have to tell me if you are going to enter but I will feel more motivated if I get at least a couple people saying they plan on participating! I'm really nervous because I have seen contests like this crash and burn with no one or only one person entering and I don't want that to happen!!!
So tell your friends about this/share this journal and help me out!!
