Hello everyone!

I am one of the contest mods and you may know about the writing contests that are being held in the Writing Contests subforum.
Now I want to extend the contests to Art as well.

The art contests will be held in the Gallery, which seems like a more suitable place than the Writing Contests subforum. Since I only have room for displaying one contest in the sidebar, the art contest will run alongside the writing contest and both will have the same deadline.

This will be the first art contest done in the Guild and if all goes according to plan, it will launch August 1st between 9:00 and 12:00 CET (7:00-9:00 server time).

So this is a heads up to everyone to keep an eye on the gallery and the sidebar for more details regarding the contest.

Any questions or comments about this announcement may be posted here or send in a PM.

I'd like some clarification in regards to the art mediums-- i.e. Paintings, sketches, 3d modeling, paper sculpture?
And with that said, will they be separated based on medium? Or simply, "Go make finger paint to compete if you want."

The rules of the contest will be posted when the first contest launches. This post was mainly to let people know it's coming and that those interested should check the gallery tomorrow.

There will be some general rules that mention using your own art and keep it SFW. And there will specific rules for the contest, with restrictions or bonus categories and the deadline.

This is the first version of art contests, so I'm definitely open to suggestions in what mediums you all prefer to work. The first contest will focus on drawn or painted art, be it traditional or digital. That will be the only limitation.
Future contests may have no limitations on the medium used or may require a specific type of art. I may ask for only sketches and doodles for instance. Or 'go wild with paper'.

The writing contests have always been about giving participants as much freedom as they want/need and I want to extend that to the art contests too. So, if I ask for drawn or painted art, then sketches, line-art, watercolour, finger-painting, black-white or full colour, people or geometric shapes, etc., it will be all valid as entry as long as it adheres to the theme in one way or the other. Of course the less effort put into an entry, the less likely it is to get votes in the voting round.

Whether or not the different types of art will be separated in the voting round will depend on how many different types of entries we have. If I would allow all kinds of art and I end up with six drawings and one origami swan, all entries will be put together. If there are enough entries to make it a decent contest for different mediums I can split them up.

I hope this answers your questions.
