So a combination of me enjoying making my papermotes, and a comment i just recieved, i felt like running a little contest :la:

The Theme


As the name suggests, the idea is to create an emote out of ‘real world’ objects. This can be anything from pens to paint to pompoms or even a plant pot. The idea is to think creatively and use your devious skills to come up with something imaginative.

To make things a little clearer, there are some rules:

:bulletred: Anyone is free to enter the contest
:bulletorange: All deviations should be submitted to the correct category
If it’s a drawing it should be in ‘traditional art’, a photo in ‘photography’. If you are unsure make use of the ‘dA related > Devious fun’ or ‘scraps’ galleries. No entries should be submitted to the actual ‘emoticons’ category.
:bulletyellow: You are allowed some digital input into your design (eg animating images, digitally drawing an emote to print off and photo) but there must be some non-digital element to each submission
:bulletgreen: You are allowed to use official dA stressballs/buttons or other pre-made emotes but they must be photographed in a creative way  to make up for not being made yourself.
:bulletblue: Equally you are able to enter interesting emotes found in nature, buildings or objects
:bulletpurple: All submissions must be new as of Jan 24th 2010

How to Enter


The deadline for the contest is: 28th Feb 2010, 11.59pm GMT

To submit an entry please send a link or thumb of it to Synfull in a note. You are allowed a total of 5 entries so get creative :eager:

** For these prizes, you must be happy to supply valid postal address. If you do not wish to share your postal address, you are able to request the emotes to be made and submitted as a deviation, but not mailed to you.

The papermotes and beadmotes requested can be either copies of ones already created, or made from scratch. However new emotes will be restricted to simple designs which don't rely heavily on animation

*** A valid postal address is also required for this prize

Hee-hee... I saw a "real life" situation, which would have made a great emoticon but didn't get a picture!! Will have to see what I can come up with.
