The Light Source Contest!

The Light Source Contest!

:new: We now have a new ongoing contest; The Light Source Contest, hosted by SkyAndNatureClub and co-hosted by Unknown-Artists-Club and Feature-Club! Please read more about the contests and its rules below.

:bulletblue: About the theme:

This contest is about "Light", and how you best show it in your entry. The "Source" of light could be anything. It could be natural (e.g. sunlight), or artificial (e.g. lamp). Light could be directed on the object from any angle. Back Lighting is an example.

For the visual media (photography, traditional art, digital art), the objective will be to use a source of light in your work. The objective is not to show us the lamp for example, but to show us how it lightened the work.

As for Literature, the objective is to write about Light.

There are a few examples below to show you what we need.

Good Luck!

sUnLiGhT...Yesterday has died
And the road's still too long
Waiting for the rise of the sun
That has disappeared long time ago
That has left me wandering blind with no stars
In a moonless night
Setting back
Waiting for a shooting star
To make a wish for a better future
To make a wish for someone to hold my hand
For this silence to fade away
And all that I have
Is my faith that's fading away
Is my faith in the sun light
That will bring me up high
Once more to clouds
That will bring my smile
Once more to my tearful face…
Dawn sunlightThe early morning sun
strikes the autumn tinged leaves
with the blow of a heavy hammer
shattering its orange glow
into a million shards of beauty
through the windows of my cell
setting my imagination free.
