To all of our members/watchers :D

UPDATE: TO CLARIFY FOR OUR MEMBERS, THE CONTEST THEME, "WHAT DOES SANCTUARY MEAN TO YOU?", IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE AN ACTUAL SANCTUARY OR ABOUT THE GROUP, BUT IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE WHAT YOU PERSONALLY FEEL IS LIKE A SANCTUARY FOR YOU.  IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE MORE SYMBOLIC OF HOW IT MEANS PERSONALLY TO YOU :)

We haven't done a contest in forever and things have been hectic for me, which has led me to not be as active with the group as I should have been and I apologize for that. :(  I want to host a contest for you guys on the theme, What Does Sanctuary Mean to You?

There will be multiple winners in each category: 1 winner for digital art, 1 for traditional, 1 for literature, etc, so that gives everyone a chance to use the art form that they're most comfortable with. :)

UPDATE: WHEN SUBMITTING YOUR ENTRIES, CLICK ON THE "CONTEST ENTRY" FOLDER IN THE GROUP'S GALLERY, AND CLICK ON THE SUB FOLDERS IN THE CONTEST ENTRY FOLDER TO SUBMIT YOUR ENTRIES TO.

I want to host the contest for at least 1 month to give everyone else time to prepare for the contest. :)  The contest will start on 10/22/2013 and you will have until the end of November to submit your entries :D  

UPDATE: THE CONTEST WILL START AS OF TOMORROW ON 10/13/2013 AND WILL RUN UNTIL THE END OF NOVEMBER (THE LAST DAY OF NOVEMBER WILL BE THE LAST DAY TO SUBMIT YOUR CONTEST ENTRIES!)

Plus this will also give me some time to save up some more points for you guys as winning prizes and such ^^  

If you guys also want to donate some points to the group for prizes, you can donate them at my profile and I will save them up for you guys :D  We would greatly appreciate any point donation of any amount! :heart:

Here will be the prizes for the winners:

:winner: PRIZES :winner:
1st place winner: 150 :points:, a llama badge, a chibi/journal doll from :iconspookybjorn:, full art piece of a character of your choosing by :iconsvelta:, and a week's feature on my deviantART page. :)
2nd place winner: 25 :points:, a flat colored, transparent art piece(no background) by :iconsvelta:, a week's feature on my deviantART page, and a llama badge
3rd place winner: A week's feature on my deviantART page and a llama badge

I'll give out some of the point prizes, the llama badge, and features, and :iconspookybjorn: was awesome to offer a chibi/journal doll prize :D.   If any of the other administrators wish to contribute to the prizes, they are free to do so and let me know by either leaving a comment here or sending it to me via note ^^

With all due respect,

Rose :rose:

I don't believe anyone sucks at art but rather that everyone has their own skill and ability to create a unique piece :)  And we encourage everyone to join!  I hope you can too! :D

By "Sanctuary" do you mean this particular group, or the word/term Sanctuary? :P
Reply
:iconwhitewolfmystic:
WhiteWolfMystic Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The Word/Term sanctuary and what it means to you personally  :)  It's more of a symbolic thing ^^;

You can either choose to illustrate what sanctuary means to you, or you can take it more literally and draw your sanctuary! I.E. I'm probably gonna draw something involving a nice cozy place with the warm glow of candles, and bieing surrounded by some characters of mine, because that would be a perfect sanctuary to me :3

It sounds so cool :D I actually first joined the group BECAUSE of what the word "Sanctuary" means to me!! I'll try to join!!! Is fan art acceptable btw??
Reply
:iconwhitewolfmystic:
WhiteWolfMystic Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, fanart is acceptable :)  There's going to be judging for a piece in every category (pretty much for all the folders that we have in the group ^^;)  And awesome, we can't wait to see your entry if you decide to join! :D

So, I will be judged for fan art, not traditional art? WHich also means digital fan art pieces?? (I intend to do it traditionally)

WhiteWolfMystic Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
If it has copyrighted characters in it (like say for pokemon), it will be judged for fanart, no matter which medium that was used :)

:iconspookybjorn:
SpookyBjorn Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2013  Professional General Artist
I think that would be acceptable? I mean it is personally what would be sanctuary to you, so I would assume so, but I would wait for the ok from :iconxrosewaterx: just in case XD

It's supposed to be more of what sanctuary personally means to the person entering in the contest but if they want to draw an actual sanctuary, then they can do that too :)

It doesn't have to be, it's just mostly a piece of art/literature/photomanip/etc about what sanctuary means to you :)

You can draw it.  If you want it to be an actual sanctuary, then you can do that.  It's just what it personally means to you.  It's more of a symbolic thing :/
