Thinking about doing a little summer contest of some kind on my own with the rest of my points. Does anybody watching me have a genre preference that would encourage them to enter? Any theme ideas besides just "summer"? I was thinking if I start it soon, I could run it for a good month, before school starts back up (for me). Other thoughts? Anyone interested in co-judging with me if I did this? (I was thinking me and two more to vote at the end)
To me, when someone badmouths a person, I'm not hearing the bad things about that absent person, I'm hearing: "I can't be trusted to keep your secrets and I will say things to other people about you the minute your back is turned."
My dad raised me to believe that I had just as much potential as my brothers. Being a girl has never been used as an excuse for me not to do something. A shout-out to all the dads out there who raise their girls to know they are just as important as boys!!! Happy father's day!
I do NOT under any circumstances support bigotry and I will unwatch you if you claim that homosexuality is "evil" or that "God" told you to say hateful things concerning the LGBT community. I didn't think this needed to be said but given a recent experience I think it does.

Which Theme Catches Your Fancy?…

Summer Contest Planning

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 24, 2016, 5:40 PM

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


July 30th
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!!

General Rules:

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! :D

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:

:bulletblue: Sweet Summer

:bulletred:  Heat Haze/Summer Haze

:bulletgreen: Warm Memories

:bulletpurple: Summer Twilight

:bulletgreen: 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:…

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!


Traditional Art



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!! :D


ActsofArt's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
I dabble in tradish art and I consider myself a fair writer. I often start projects I will probably never finish but I do my best. For more on me: Info Meme:

I also love features, featuring art is fun. To get featured donate points!!
Current System: (you must note me for this to apply, critiques and llama badges come with any amount of points upon request)
(1-4 points) I will choose one piece of art from your gallery that I believe most representative of your overall skill/medium and add it to an upcoming feature
(5-9 points) I will choose up to two works from your gallery and add it to an upcoming feature
(10-20 points) you may choose two works of your own or a friends to be added to an upcoming feature

Also: Visit me on Soundcloud and Power Poetry for exclusive pieces not submitted here!!! (I am more active on soundcloud though)…

Note: if I have Favorited your work, it is because I genuinely liked it, I try to limit the amount of artworks I fav to the best or most creatively inspired. You may thank me if you like, but it is not completely necessary since you earned it with your creativity and skill.
