Hi all,

So, I have decided to start a contest ... And as forest is often the place for magic, fairyland, tales, etc ... I called this first contest "Mythical Forest World".




WHAT IS A MYTH ?


1. A traditional or legendary story, usually concerning some being or hero or event, with or without a determinable basis of fact or a natural explanation, especially one that is concerned with deities or demigods and explains some practice, rite, or phenomenon of nature.

2. Stories or matter of this kind: realm of myth.

3. Any invented story, idea, or concept: His account of the event is pure myth.

4. An imaginary or fictitious thing or person.

5. An unproved or false collective belief that is used to justify a social institution.

:bulletgreen: You can draw/shoot/manipulate a person and/or an animal(s) but in a mythical theme and the place must always be situated in a forest. And above all, I want creativity, something new ... Impress me !! You can inspire you from tales, well known stories, but it must have something special, particular, from your own creativity.

I just submitted one entry to the contest, but tried to submit also a deviation in another folder. The message that popped out is that it just accepts 1 deviation per day, which is ok, but it should not apply to the contest folder since we are allowed to post 3 deviations.

sow, what does that mean to the participants that submit things that have nothing to to with the mythical side or haven't answered the questions? Are they disqualified? ;)

Are you joking ? The theme is "Mythical Forest World", so obviously works which have not a mythical side are disqualified ... The answer was in your question ;).

If it's photography does a person or creature HAVE to be in the photo? Or can it just be a forest?
And how many photographs are there for the contest so far? Also, do I have to be member of Forest-World to participate? One more thing . . . can I only submit one peice of art? Or do I have to submit all three - digital, photography, and traditional? :?

I hope I'm not bothering you with my questions. ^^; I'm considering on joining, but I'm a little unsure about it . . .
