I have some questions about the media. It is mentioned that traditional and digital artist may be inspired by the photos in the folder. Does that make this contest a drawing contest only? Other mediums such as photography and/or photomanipulations are included within the "digital" spectrum or not?

You wrote no fantasy creatures.. are real animals/birds okay?
Egil21's avatar
Yes, as long as your work is similar to these:

I need your kissing. by Egil21   Haven by Egil21   To wander long before evening... by Egil21    Sea of Blue by Egil21   Colour Desire by Egil21

So only insects? No mammals or birds?
Egil21's avatar
Yes, you may reproduce a bird or other animal, but with flowers, not on the top of a tree.
I think it's clear, since the first words on top of the journal and all along the rules, that the main subject are flowers.

Filling Station by Egil21   Celebrate the Spring by Egil21

Only pieces similar to these are acceptable.
Similar means "having a resemblance in appearance, character, or quantity, without being identical", "looking or being almost but not exactly, the same".

Hi ! I was wondering if your photos inspired me to create a fairy, would that work? Or does the work have to pure nature without creatures and humanoids/humans?
Egil21's avatar

Hello,
No fantasy, please.
Similar means "having a resemblance in appearance, without being identical", "being alike or having the same characteristics" and that's the idea.

Have fun!
