Draw This Again Winners Announcement

Fri Oct 19, 2012, 8:09 PM
Now, after many long hours of deliberation, our judges have selected the 10 Finalists. We based our selections on the level of creativity, artistic progression from one frame to the next, and overall impact of the work. Congratulations to the 10 Finalists!
* Subject to availability
  • Their New (aka "After") work as a Framed Fine Art Print
  • One-year deviantART Premium Membership
  • The dA PRO Nomad Bag
  • A deviantART Hoodie of their choice*


The Cause

DeviantART has partnered with FAIR (Freedom, Action, Inclusion, Rights) to help promote equality through The Love Unites Shepard Fairey Equality Project. We're asking our members to align themselves with this cause through their passion and creativity, and have their work judged by renowned artist, Shepard Fairey, in the process.

FAIR, with its finger on the pulse of our generation's passion and potential, is revolutionizing what it means to be young and active. Stepping up after the passage of Proposition 8 (the California state proposition banning same-sex marriage) to galvanize tomorrow's leaders, FAIR emerged as a grassroots force. The group brings together the skills, passion, and determination of a collection of young professionals from diverse backgrounds committed to the struggle for equality. FAIR has given the movement a visible face, image, and message. On November 15th, 2008, FAIR's first event brought, in less than a week, 15,000 people to City Hall, and asked Shepard Fairey to create the "Love Unites" image – now a unifying symbol at equality events across the globe. Working to create a tangible shift in California's marriage equality movement, FAIR embodies and empowers a new generation to claim equality and freedom as their own; and, with pop culture street cred backing it up, wages war on homophobia.

The Contest

To spotlight the equality cause, FAIR has teamed up with over 80 celebrities (everyone from Robert De Niro to Julia Roberts, Scarlett Johansson to Jared Leto) and had them sign and, in some cases, customize the original Shepard Fairey "Love Unites" print, which you can find available for download below. The customized pieces are being auctioned off online here.

Deviants — it's YOUR turn to customize the "Love Unites" print and have Shepard Fairey judge your creation! For this contest, we're asking you to remix and re-imagine the original "Love Unites" print. The contest is open to ALL deviantART members, EVERYWHERE in the world. Not only is this a great opportunity to help promote a fantastic cause, but the final winners will be chosen by Shepard Fairey himself! This is a huge deal; so have fun and get creative with the "Love Unites" design, get your work checked out by Shepard Fairey, and win some awesome prizes.

Artistic Journey Challenge Winners

Wed Nov 26, 2014, 12:05 PM


Running Towards Improvement by TheK40
Video by Keith Fenter, kfenter

In the "What Does Your Artistic Journey Look Like?" Challenge, we asked the DeviantArt community to show us their personal creative journeys. We selected 50 deviants and integrated their work into a fantastical collaborative roadway under the direction of Keith Fenter. The result: an eclectic combination of hopes, desires and achievements in the arts reflecting the core of the community that is DeviantArt.

Judges' Comments

"Here we have a clear window into this artist's journey. We get to see all the way back to his humble beginnings, struggling with drawing stick figures, up to the point where he's totally nailed line, color, and perspective. With a wonderfully clever and pleasing composition, this piece even gives us the chance to see the artist dodge an obstacle on the way down his creative road."

Judges' Comments

"Wylielise mingles both traditional and digital platforms to create a beautiful marriage of old and new, showing both in technique and illustration that there are many roads you can traverse and several ways to get there on your own artistic journey."

Judges' Comments

"This piece covers various mediums of art and shows how an artist must experiment with a variety of materials throughout their artistic journey. The composition of intricately placed details tells a story most artists can relate to."



The Make Ugly Contest

Mon May 13, 2013, 12:57 PM
+1

Make Ugly. Get recognition.

What's the ugliest truth about Big Tobacco? truth® wants to find out and you can help. DeviantART is calling for submissions of your ugliest monster, giant, mutant or undead art. Download the facts for inspiration and get in on the ugly action. Winners get cash prizes and will be included as a part of the truth® Artist Collective.

The Facts

Monster

To draw public attention from the dangers of secondhand smoke in 1987, Big Tobacco thought they might try to "create a bigger monster (AIDs)."

Undead

1 in 3 teens who begin smoking eventually die from tobacco-related disease. Not undead. Dead dead.

Giant

A Big Tobacco document shows they worried that publishing that radioactive Polonium-210 is in cigarette smoke would be like "waking a sleeping giant."

Mutant

One tobacco company biologically engineered tobacco plants to have twice the normal level of nicotine. Talk about a mutation.

Step 1

Download the fact pack to get inspired by some ugly truths.

Download the Fact Pack

Step 2

Three Steps to Success

1. Download the template & create your own bottle artwork.

The template will provide you with a rectangular         "skin" outline representing the dimensions         of the actual label that wraps around the bottle.         Place your artwork into the rectangular template.         There is also a side-view of the bottle, which you         may optionally use (in addition to the required         rectangular skin) to show off your artwork on an         actual bottle shape.

Create anything you want using the template so         long as it represents your vision. Your entry         should show the Art Water name in whatever design         or placement you choose.

Helpful tip: The Art Water bottle is clear, meaning         you can play with the transparency for some crazy         layering effects. Now download the template and         start creating!

Download Bottle Template

Upload your Artwork to one of three categories: photography, traditional art and digital art.

Save your artwork as a GIF, JPG or PNG and upload it to deviantART via the buttons below.

Upload Photography Entry Upload Traditional Art Entry Upload Digital Art Entry *The photography category is for any entry in which photography is the dominant medium used and any entry using photomanipulation techniques based on photographs.

Win Awesome Prizes!

Art Water will select a winning entry in each category. Each winner will receive the prize package described below. To win, be sure your entry follows the rules!

Official Rules

There will be one photographer, one digital artist, and one traditional artist chosen to have their designs appear as Art Water bottle labels and sold throughout the United States!

Each artist will receive $1,500 USD, 8,000 deviantART Points, and a one year Premium Membership to deviantART!

Artists will also receive a $0.03 royalty for every bottle that is sold with their design on it. Click here for more information about the royalty.

It's a philosophy, an attitude, and a commitment to being the best you can be. It's about not letting drugs and alcohol compromise who you are. It's about staying strong in the face of anything that'll make you less than you, because ultimately, it's your life and it's so worth it.


DeviantART is the perfect place to show off all the passions that fill up your life.

Show us what you love and what inspires you. Those passions that fill your life—the things that leave no room for drugs and alcohol. Draw, paint, sculpt, photograph, digitally manipulate—exercise your craft in any way you choose to form the shape of the Above the Influence symbol.

Your artwork will be featured in a sharable slideshow widget on the deviantART homepage and on abovetheinfluence.com. And not only that, Above the Influence might offer to use your artwork in their national advertising campaigns!

Read Offical Rules
Every member who submits at least one qualified entry will receive an exclusive, limited edition aeviantART shirt!

Getting Started

Check out these examples as inspiration and start brainstorming what drives you in life, what passions inspire you, and what keeps you Above the Influence. Then, all you have to do is download the template and let your creative juices flow!

Later, drop by and check out submissions by others. You may be surprised by how much you have in common with other artists and deviants, and you may even be inspired by something that sparks a new passion in you.
