Inside
Inside

Everyone tries on different personas, behaviors and points of view sometimes leading to internal conflicts—whether it’s tension between what you want to do and what you know is right to do, or between your active side and your lazy side.  But in the movie Split, Kevin (James McAvoy) has internalized 23 distinct personalities—and a 24th is about to be born.  Kevin’s personalities are in constant conflict and fight for control of his body, and the result is a battle for power that drags everyone along for a terrifying ride.

DeviantArt is challenging you to depict what this inner battle looks like. Taking inspiration from the movie or from your own life, create an original piece of art illustrating an internal struggle—either between Kevin’s various personalities or between your own inner personas.

Your entry can be figurative or abstract. Read Official Rules.

How To Enter

Well, why is the enter contest button still up? Did anyone test it?
I also saw entrys after April 9th.
They were uploaded a day after the contest closed.
I made a screenshot, just to see if deviantart change the date (again, like they did in other contests before). And they did... CURSE YOU!

Here it was April 10th and now dA change the date to April 9th...

I guess they meant you shouldn't add the "Split" logo to your artwork and they weren't talking about the title of your artwork. :nod:

Why do you guys even bother to make up rules if yourself are going to ignore them? It was written in bold in the official rules that the word "Split" should not be mentioned in the title, and yet you chose an entry that has the word "Split" in the title. Favoritism????
pleasant28's avatar
I just realised, since I put the phrase "This is my entry for the Split shattered self Contest" in my Description, I have the word Split in it. Is that reason enough to disqualify it? ;-;
