Hello all of you crazies out there!

First, thanks for the kind notes about Bark. The entire deviantArt Community has lost a brilliant mind, and he will be missed dearly.

:bulletgreen: I'm putting together some of my favorites of his art as well as his words in a book that will include his last writings that hadn't made it to print yet. I'll let you all know when it comes out.

Since the Hatter is still under the table, and yet some how can continue to get a cup of tea, he has asked me to get another contest going. Since it's Spring, I thought it would be a cool idea to make this one a "The Rabbit Hole" Contest.

Here are the details:

:bulletblack: What Is It?
A contest for both writers and visual artists who are members of the Mad Hatters Society. Every deviant at dA who is even a little mad is welcome to join.

:bulletblack: How To Participate?
There are some stock that I found that features Alice, the Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat, the Caterpillar, and the Hatter himself. Click the image to download the stock:

:bulletblack: What Do I Do?
Visual artist are to place these stock images together with other images to make an appropriate "The Rabbit Hole" scene.  You can use any media (like digital mixed media, digital painting, traditional drawing/painting, collage)
as long as the characters are in the same poses and look like the stock.

Writers, you're to use the poses of the characters to write a related long poem, or a short-short story.

:bulletblack: What Do I Do When I'm Ready To Submit?
When your entry is ready, please include in the artist comments:
'This is an entry in The Rabbit Hole Contest at MadHattersSociety"

 Don't forget our society's  avatar. Then submit your entry to the appropriate  folder in the Mad Hatters Society's gallery.

:bulletblack: What's The Recognition Prizes?
There will be recognition for the top two entries in each category:
:star:First Place: An original set of Christmas cards (4 of 3 designs) by TheFantaSim, Journal Features, and 1000 points

:star:Second Place: An original small print from any deviant, Journal Features, and 500 points.

:bulletblack: Could There Be More Recognitions?
Yes. 10 Honorable Mentions, visual or writing,  will receive 25 points and Journal Features.

If anyone would like to donate points toward the prizes, or donate a journal feature, I would be very grateful. Just contact me or the Mad Hatter at the group.

:bulletblack: When Does It Start And When Does It End?
The contest starts today, April 18th, and will run until May 30th.

:bulletblack: What Is The VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION For The Photomanipulators?

These are rendered stock. Please either used all rendered stock and categorize your deviation accordingly. If you use photo stock with the rendered stock, please categorize the deviation as mixed media.

:bulletblack: Who Are The Judges?
To Be Announced.

You've had enough rest from the cold Winter and the beginning of hay fever  Spring. Let's finish that last glass of Absinthe, pour just one more cup of ginseng tea, push ourselves away from the table, and be creative. Let's do it for Bark, and
Make the Hatter proud!

I am also not so sure about what was meant about 'write using the poses of the characters'.
