The submissions from the 40 semi-finalists will also be made available as prints in our exclusive PiNKiTUDE Shop‚ and if purchased, we will donate 100% of deviantART's portion of the sale to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. The artist will still receive their portion of the sale, so everyone wins for a great cause!

All entrants in the contest submitting a qualifying work will receive a one-month free subscription to deviantART (only one per entrant no matter how many works are submitted).

Submission Rules

Contest is open to all visual mediums, all ages (over 13) and all locations (Permissions have been granted to make an exception to our age restrictions for prints for the purpose of this competition). Contest ends 11:59:59 PM on November 28th, 2008.

Your submission must be a minimum of 2400×3600 pixels to make a 24×36 print quality image. You can set the image on display in your gallery as smaller. However, if selected as one of the 40 semi-finalists, you will be required to make the image available as a print that will be sold in the PiNKiTUDE shop.

The theme is up to your interpretation. However, it should be representative of PiNKiTUDE in some way.

Your work can be done digitally or traditionally. Whatever medium your little heart desires!

The materials provided in the "download pack" link above can only be used in entries and not for any other purpose, but are not required to be used to qualify.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why can't I open the resource pack images?
The assets provided are overwhelmingly EPS files (Encapsulated PostScript). This particular file type works best with common Adobe applications like Photoshop and Illustrator, as well as with Corel Painter. On most Operating Systems, EPS files do not automatically have a default application association, meaning if you double-click on them they may not open in Photoshop/Illustrator/Painter. If you own any of these programs, try using the Open dialog from within them to gain access to the EPS files.

2. Can I submit more than one entry?
Yes, you may submit as many entries as you like !

3. What if I win the scooter but I don't live anywhere near LA?
Vespa will be made available to the prize winner in Los Angeles CA or shipped as directed from Los Angeles CA.  deviantART will follow the instructions for shipment arranged by the winner but at the winner's cost.

4. If I get chosen to be in the book, do I have to pay?
No, if your entry is selected, you agree in advance to being PAID a $100.00 rights payment for your entry to be included in the book.

5. Does the entry have to be made specifically for the contest?
Yes, you cannot submit an image to this contest that you've submitted previously.  You must create an image specific to this contest.

6. If my entry wins, do I lose the rights of my own art?
No, the rights payment is simply to compensate the artist for use of their image within the book (should that occur).

* Winner will be responsible for all DMV registration and on-the road costs. Design may vary from the scooter shown. Scooter to be picked up in Los Angeles, California.
** If over 18

I sent a note to moonbeam asking about the status of the contest and she said they were just waiting on MGM to finalize the results. I suggested she at least make a comment about it here letting everyone know 'cause people were starting to get antsy, but that was a little over a week ago and still no word so I figured I'd give you kiddos a heads up to ease your troubled minds a bit.

I'm speculating that the holidays have caused some delays so let's just enjoy what's left of 'em 'cause I'm sure once party time has settled we'll have the results. :) Btw, Happy New Year, everyone. :lolly:

thanks alot. i was very sad that it takes so looong....
transfuse's avatar
Yeah, it's really strange that it would take so long to announce the winners. Everyone's been dying to find out when you're finally gonna get your Vespa. =P I'm sure there's a rational explanation for the delay though.

Thanks transfuse! I think TONS of us appreciate the update from you.

Hey no problem. I know being left in the dark isn't very fun. :)

This is ridiculously frustrating! I want a book! :D
odysseyart's avatar
did they announce the winners yet?
leafbunk's avatar
I don't believe they have yet -- at least I have not seen the announcement if they have. I've been checking back here every so often, and it makes me sad that the presentation of the winners would be delayed so far without at least an update from someone. :(
odysseyart's avatar
phooey! oh well, thanks for the info!

I'm sorry, but the time it's taken for the winners to be announced makes me really hesitant to enter any more contests.

Especially since this one was so disappointing.
