A Contest For All Of DA!!

Update: Contest extended till Sunday, May 31st!

What it is:

Take one Artist and one writer and have them compete together. The Artist draws, or photographs or manipulates their craft; The Writer, writes a poem or short story based off the artist work *please keep written works to 1000 words or less*. It works the other way too, you can create art from literature too! :la: 

Of course we have a theme Visualize our Dreams and your work needs to fit. We are a family here lets show the rest of the world what one form of social media can do. We can bring people from all walks of life with all talents together for one cause.

If you can find your own buddy awesome, if you need help finding a buddy we will pair up loners after asking two questions... Art or Writing? and What is your fav genre to work in? *just comment on this journal* If there are not enough in a particular catigory we will do our best to match everyone up!


This contest will run from April 1st to May 15th! We may extend the dates depending on participation. After the conclusion of the contest please give us at least 2 weeks for judging before asking for the results... I will make a journal entry as soon as we come to a decision. We will make a poll for you to choose your favorite pair but know, the judges will be responsible for the final decision!

Update: Contest extended to Sunday, May 31st!! So get those entries in!

How to enter:

Both buddies will create their entries after consulting with one another on who will create the first deviation. Then the second participant will create their deviation as an interpretation of the first deviation. Both deviations will need to make sure to tag the other deviation in their comments on the deviation as well as tag this journal entry. Then both of you will need to submit your deviations to this folder, ourdreamswillcome.deviantart.c…, You will also need to use the same title on your works so we know they are together. 

*note* any art style is accepted ex: photography, photo-manips, all forms of digital and traditional art including pixel art! Please keep short stories and poetry to 1000 words or less.

It is not necissary to join OurDreamsWillCome to participate in the contest, but we would love to have you as a member!


Absolutly No nudes, and No gore and please keep foul language to a minimum as OurDreamsWillCome is a group for all ages of deviants.

*Importaint Edit* If you use any bases, photos, or any other stock that is not yours please do not forget to give credit to the owner... as this will disqualify your team, once judging has started.

*Importaint Edit* Just for clarification please link this journal in your comments

Contest Entry Sample For Our Dreams Will Come by CallMeFarGone

Contest Entry Sample for Our Dreams Will ComeLying on the cold ground,
Looking strait at that star.
(Peter)Pan on my head,
With pirates we will spar.
My own starship takes off, 
With my feet on the trunk.
Toward the second(star)
One wrong move I am sunk.
Headed forward not back,
Land of Never (N)ever.
Holding tightly my book,
I learn to be clever.
Into the stars I fly,
I’ll return with the tide.
After Never (N)ever,
Back home to reside.

Thanks for your concideration on joining in on this contest!

Oh, that is fine... I announced this several months ago and I was just using that so that people could ask others to be their partners and so I could visually keep strait who I assigned to whom. It is not necissarry to be on that list to participate (it was just a sanity check for me)
