Stylenoir Monarchy Contest

Fri Aug 30, 2013, 12:29 AM
Stylenoir Magazine is the world's largest dark style magazine and, after three years online, they launched to print earlier this year with tremendous success - selling out within the first month! Stylenoir wants to share this success with us, by offering a limited number of deviants features online and in print in the form of a contest!

Stylenoir features digital and traditional artists alongside their fashion photography editorials - the Retribution print issue featured dA artists AUTR3 and Dan-Heffer - and this contest will reflect that diversity with three separate categories!


The Brief


The theme for the next issue of Stylenoir is Monarchy. Your entries should reflect this (keeping in mind the aesthetic and ethos of Stylenoir Magazine). We want to see your Monarchy artworks!

Please submit your entries to the Stylenoir Monarchy category.

Photographers

Rather than full editorials, we are looking for single images (although you are welcome to shoot full editorials, we just want to see one image from it per submission!).
While the magazine is fashion orientated, and fashion photography submissions are encouraged, we are also welcoming more artistic and interpretive photographic submissions - just make sure that your image is related to Monarchy!

Traditional Artists

We are excited to see submissions from all sorts of traditional mediums, no limits on creativity and expression! Just maintain the Monarchy theme, feel free to browse the contest and Stylenoir inspiration pages listed in the links below.

Digital Artists

Similar to traditional artists, we would love to see any and all means of creating suitable pieces of art! The only stipulation here applies to artists seeking to create photomanipulations to submit to the contest - - I'm afraid that the magazine is unable to accept and publish pieces created with other people's stock so if you want to make a photomanipulation all the stock you use must be your own.


Important Dates


:bulletblue: Contest starts on the 30th of August
:bulletblue: Deadline for entries is the 30th of September
:bulletblue: Finalists are announced on the 7th of October
:bulletblue: The three winners are announced on the 14th of October



Prizes

Runners up x 15

15 runners up, will be featured on Stylenoir Magazine's website, in addition to each winning the following:
:bulletblue: 1 month deviantART premium membership
:bulletblue: 800 deviantART points


Winners x 3

3 winners, one from each of the medium types, will be featured again online and specially in the Monarchy print issue of Stylenoir Magazine in addition to each winning the following:
:bulletblue: 1 year deviantART premium membership
:bulletblue: 2,000 deviantART points

:star: Welcome to Wonderland :star:


Greetings, stranger.

I find myself delighted to lay my rather large eyes on you. A purrfectly delicious mystery awaits you. Won't you come this way?

I've been a bad kitty-- a very naughty, naughty feline, indeed. You see, today is Alice's Unbirthday, and all the inhabitants of Wonderland had planned to join her and the Mad Hatter for tea and cake. But, the Mad Hatter, being quite a bit off his rocker, is requiring that everyone wear a hat to the party. Anyone without a hat cannot attend.

Whoops! Mysteriously, *smile* all the hats in Wonderland have gone missing. What a shame, what a shame. Whatever shall we do?

I know what we shall do. You and I, stranger, we shall go to the party together. I hear the cake is delicious this year, and there will be plenty for us.

Except, wait! HA! You cannot!!! You have no hat, either! I suppose you'll have to stay here, too, then. Very well. Goodbye.


What do you mean that's not fair



It's perfectly fair and logical. The rules say you must have a hat. You have no hat. Too bad. You lose. So sad.

I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, Wow, I'll just have to find one of the hats that were lost in Wonderland. I'm a step ahead of you. You can't just take someone else's hat. Then, what are they to wear? You must build your own. Maybe if you find the villagers' hats for them, they will tell you what your own hat should look like. Here's a hint: It should be very unusual-- the more unusual, the better.




How it Works



Well, why are you just standing there? Go get started! I'll even give you the characters' addresses:

Queen of Hearts
Alice
White Rabbit
Dormouse
The Caterpillar
The Mad Hatter
The March Hare
The Gryphon
The Mock Turtle
Alice's Sister
Dinah the Cat
The Duck
Tweedle Dee
Tweedle Dum
The Doorknob
Jabberwocky
The Walrus
The Pigeon

What to do



Go to each page. The characters will have a clue to where to find THEIR hat either in the open or hidden somewhere on their front profile page. Solve the clue and find the hat, then note that character the link to their hat. He or she will give you a clue for making YOUR hat.


But hurry


You only have until noon PT on Wednesday, August 6th to collect all of the clues. When you have collected them, you must turn in a list of your ANSWERS via NOTE to The White Queen by noon on the 6th. When you turn in your answers, The White Queen will give you the location of our party. 


The Rules



Very well. I shall give you the rules so you don't get beheaded lose your way.

1. Work alone. Prizes will be awarded for the highest number of correct answers, so it is to your benefit to help no one (feel free to mislead them if they ask for help, however . . .)
2. Work alone.
3. Work alone.
4. You may NOT note the character to ask where their hat is. Do not note them until you can provide them with a link to their lost hat.
5. Only note the characters on the list. Any other hearts are off-limits.
6. Be nice.
7. Work alone.
8. Turn in your answers to The White Queen by August 6th at 12 noon PT.
9. Work alone.



Prizing



I suppose you want a prize, too. If you insist. I will be awarding 2,000 points and a 6-month premium membership each to the 3 people with the highest number of correct answers. If there is a tie, the prizes will go to the first 3 who turned them in.

Moreover, you must participate in this phase of the contest if you want to participate in the next contest. Oops, I've said too much.


If you need help . . .



If you stumble, never fear. Your faithful friend, Cheshire, is here. Should you have trouble with a clue, you can send me a NOTE. I might not lead you astray. Or I might. Or I might not. But I might. Either way, you must note me. Any comments left here asking for help will get you disqualified.

Do I hear jingling in your pocket? You know, you can always buy my loyalty and affection-- but with hearts, not coins. My own heart has been a bit cold lately. Just send me a NOTE with links to some hearts. You can find hearts hidden on the front profile pages of SOME (not all) of deviantART's most warm-"hearted" members. Who could those be? I want the hearts. I want them all. I WILL TELL YOU THINGS!

Warning: You can only use each set of hearts one time, or risk disqualification.



tl;dr



:bulletblue: Visit the pages of each character listed above.
:bulletblue: Find the clue hidden or in plain sight on their front profile page. If you don't find it right away, that means it's hidden and you have to look for it. Do not note the character for help.
:bulletblue: Follow the clue to find their hat.  The link to their hat may not be on their profile page.  It may be on someone elses page, in their gallery or in a group or chat room.
:bulletblue: Follow the clue to find their hat.
:bulletblue: Note the character with a link to their hat.
:bulletblue: They will give you another clue. That clue tells you what to put in YOUR hat. Don't respond to the character; just make a note of your answer and move on.
:bulletblue: Note Cheshire Cat if you have any questions or need a hint (or even an answer to a clue).
:bulletblue: Look on other Community Volunteers front pages to find hidden links to hearts. Some will have them, some will not. There are 8 in total with hearts: Aeirmid, Anoya, PirateLotus-Stock, Nyx-Valentine, Kaz-D, Brookette, STelari, and pullingcandy. Link Cheshire to those hearts to bribe her for information. Use them in any combination, but you can only use each set of hearts once. Try to use them more, and you get disqualified. Sets with more hearts will get you more information.
:bulletblue: When you have answered all the clues (or as many as you can), send a list of your answers to The White Queen. She will give you the link to the party. Do this by 12 noon Pacific Time on Wednesday, August 6th. That's 3 PM Eastern, 8 PM in Western Europe, and 9 PM in Central Europe.


Need More Fun?



:star: Join the Dormouse for the Birthday Hat Contest but hurry, time is running out.  Deadline for entries is August 7th 11:59:59 AM (PT)

:star: Get your funny hat on and get involved with the 14th Birthday Caption Contest which runs until August 9th.

:star: Participate in The Unbirthday Literature Contest which runs until August 19th.

:star: Join us ALL DAY for Unbirthday Chat and Forum events!!

Contest: Fan Art Nouveau

Wed Apr 30, 2014, 9:01 PM
Hello, everyone! It's time for another Fan Art contest. This time, we're asking participants to create Fan Art in Art Nouveau style.

What is Art Nouveau?


"Art Nouveau (French pronunciation: ​[aʁ nuvo], Anglicised to /ˈɑːrt nuːˈvoʊ/) or Jugendstil is an international philosophy[1] and style of art, architecture and applied art—especially the decorative arts—that was most popular during 1890–1910.[2] English uses the French name Art nouveau ("new art"), but the style has many different names in other countries. A reaction to academic art of the 19th century, it was inspired by natural forms and structures, not only in flowers and plants, but also in curved lines. Architects tried to harmonize with the natural environment.[3]

Art Nouveau is considered a "total" art style, embracing architecture, graphic art, interior design, and most of the decorative arts including jewellery, furniture, textiles, household silver and other utensils and lighting, as well as the fine arts. According to the philosophy of the style, art should be a way of life. For many well-off Europeans, it was possible to live in an art nouveau-inspired house with art nouveau furniture, silverware, fabrics, ceramics including tableware, jewellery, cigarette cases, etc. Artists desired to combine the fine arts and applied arts, even for utilitarian objects.[3]"
- Wikipedia


Some examples of Art Nouveau

What the contest is about


Pick any character, environment or object from a fandom of your preference and create an illustration in Art Nouveau style. As simple as that!

The Triumph Project

Fri May 30, 2014, 11:40 AM


Dr. Maya Angelou, a literary and cultural luminary, died this Wednesday. While glowing words have and will continue to be spoken about her talent, activism, and dauntless spirit, she is honored especially for her body of work. She took her own suffering and the suffering of others and, through her words, transfigured that suffering into triumphant art.

 


Some of us in Community Relations invite you to participate in a new Project in remembrance of Dr. Angelou, one that grew out of a suggestion by Aeirmid. Together, we'll be creating art about triumph, be it personal, societal, or even hypothetical. At the end of the project, all deviations will be featured. This isn't a contest; it is a way for us to use our talents, following Dr. Angelou's example, to enrich our community.

 

What counts as triumphant? That's up to you. It could be a non-fiction biographical account of an historic leader, or an autobiographical poem about a personal moment of triumph. It could be a painting that captures a victorious feeling, or a photomanipulation that tells a story of triumph. Start with the theme of triumph, and see where it takes you!

 

 

Rules:


  • There must be an obvious theme of triumph in your entry.
  • Entries can be of any artistic medium.
  • If your entry is literature, the maximum length is 1000 words (prose) or 40 lines (poetry).
  • Your entry must be a deviation, created for this contest, submitted between now and Friday, June 27th, at 11:59 PDT. Submit your deviation to Community Projects > Projects > The Triumph Project (link).
  • The Artist's Comments of your entry must link to this journal. If you use resources, be sure to credit them.
  • Multiple entries are not allowed. Give us your best work.
  • Please be respectful of what we're doing here.

 

Rewards:

Again, this isn't a contest, and participating in the project should give you a warm, fuzzy feeling all over. In case that's not enough, we'll also be arranging features for participants, and maybe more. Stay tuned for further developments!

 

Discussion:

Below, feel free to share a favorite Maya Angelou quote or your thoughts about the topic of triumph.







...in memory of Dr. Maya Angelou.

Texture Your World Contest

Mon Jan 21, 2013, 6:55 AM

Tell us the story of your world in textures!


We are surrounded 24 hours a day by objects that have texture, they may be smooth or bobbly, old or new, bold, bright, shiny or dull. You might see a texture every day and never notice it until you start looking. Do you sit at a desk that's textured, or pass an interesting tree on the way to work or school?

We want you, in the form of a triptych (thats 3 images forming a larger image see example here - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triptych ) to tell us the story of your textured world. Each individual texture should stand on its own, both as a useful resource and as a cohesive part of the whole story. What story you tell through your texture triptych is up to you - but they must be textures that tell a story of your world in some way.

There are 3 categories for this contest, each of which you can submit to twice.



Digital stock
These are textures created digitally by either manipulation of other stock or painting etc

Photographic stock
These are textures which have been photographed with either a film or digital camera with minimal post editing (if you do a lot of post editing on your textures you might want to consider submitting them to the digital category instead)

Traditional stock
These are textures created with traditional media then either scanned or photographed to convert to a digital medium for submission


Submission Examples



Portrait


Landscape


Square


Submission Rules

  • Each individual texture making up the triptych must be a minimum width/height of 1000 px
  • Full submission triptych must be a minimum width/height of either 1000 px or 3000 px depending on the orientation/formatting you choose, please see examples above.
  • Each deviant may enter up to 2 times per category. (Essentially that's 2 triptychs per category or 6 textures)
  • Judges reserve the right to eliminate entries that do not meet the minimum size requirements shown above
  • Only complete triptychs will be considered as legitimate entries. (3 textures on 1 file/deviation)
  • Triptychs must be submitted to the correct folder as per the contest category in StockandResources
  • Triptychs must be submitted into the correct Resources /Stock Images /Textures /... sub category depending on their style
  • Judges reserve the right to eliminate entries that are not submitted to the correct gallery or contest folder
  • Entries must be new as of the start date of the contest and must be your own work
  • Please state clearly in the description that the work is being submitted to this contest
