Journal Entry: Fri Nov 3, 2006, 2:33 PM


You must know the proverb that says "A picture is worth a thousand words". It is from that concept that "A word is worth a thousand pictures" is born (the short way: Word-worth-1000-pics)

Word-worth-1000-pics is NOT a group or a club, so don't have any members. It is a community project meant for featuring deviant artists weekly, from a word.

:bulletgreen: HOW ?

A word is chosen for the week (only on D-day)
Searches/browsing from this word is done all week long
I select many deviations I think should be featured for some
    reasons*, coming from the key-search's results.

That simple... and it all start over again each week, on fridays (sometimes saturdays)  !

:devart: Featured deviants will get a notice on the devious comment of
      their deviation. The icon of "ww1000pics" will be added so can
      easily see they have been feature and go checking here.

:devart: The featured deviations will be added to the favorites  
      immediately, so deviants can browse through previous features.  
      None will be missed that way.

:devart: Each journal of features is sent as News on fridays (when complete)

* The selections are made considering one (or +) of many points ; technique, harmony of colors & shapes, unicity, creativity, concept, quality, mood/atmosphere, interesting subject, angle & perspective etc.

:bulletgreen:  HOW MANY ?

There is NO limit.
Can be more or less features from one week to another, depending of what has been found from a word and as time permits.

:bulletgreen: WHEN ?

The period is from friday to thursday (or friday, depending of your location)
Features can be added anytime within that period. So all week long.

:bulletgreen: WHAT ?

All mediums, as long as there is a picture related to the word.
So that means; photography, traditional art, digital art & photomanipulation, stock, wallpaper,etc.

:bulletgreen: WHY ?

Because I never know what and who will be found from a specific word. So it's impartial.

Because searching from words might help to find older deviations as the ones left unknown and less popular artists. Althought the number of favorites given to a deviation will NOT determine if it will be added or not on Wordworth1000pics. The aim of the features is to make deviants discover art they might not have seen and appreciate it.

Because it will help to find deviations from any medium of art.
Finally because featuring our wonderful artists is never too much : )

:bulletblue: MORE ABOUT IT and TIPS

The more keywords there are for a deviation, the more chance there is to be found (here and from anybody else search)
Same thing with adding a description/comment.
Don't forget that the search can lead me to a certain place because 'the' word was in the devious comments too !

Untitled or numbered deviations will NOT be found from word search

An important word verb/action in the title could benefit to be added
as the noun form in the keyword or any derived word. Colors and emotions are a good add to keywords too. The more you comment in your description, the more you can be found from so many different owrds ;p

The number of results vary for each words. There can be over 2 Million results to browse on ! (for example, "love" has 2,062,855 results). So let's say there is a part of luck being found and feature too!

:bulletred: FUN !

Get prepared ! :boogie:

I will give a word I shall make a search from, once a month or so.
This word given to you can be added anytime ! so stay tuned ;p
You will never know when the search will be done, but it will not
be the first week I've given you the word. That way, it will give you some time to create or shoot from this word if it inspires you, or get more visibility from a work already in your gallery, by adding the approriate keywords, description/comment and title.
That way, you get more chance to be found and hopefully...
featured ! :p (I never know where my search will lead me !)

For more specific information, read the F.A.Q. word-worth-1000-pics.deviantar…

:kiss: Thank you for supporting Word-worth-1000-pics, in any
    way, so more people can benefit from discovering new artists.
    It could be you who get featured! :w00t:

You can add the icon or this stamp on your journal, if you want


Enjoy the features, be curious and open wide  to new mediums & styles and... comment when you appreciate .
Let's have a great community spirit !

:bulletgreen: Aimelle

Wonderful idea! I'd love to try, how do i know the word again? i didn't quite understand....
VonButton Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2006
c'mon guys it makes sence. they pick a word and find 1000's of pics. get it?
AnaReincarnation Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2006
Si le phrase est "A picture is worth a thousand words", isn't the word is worth a thousand pics kind of the opposite thing?

Dans le premier, c'est le photo que est meilleur, mais dans le seconde, c'est le mot. ...?
Word-worth-1000-pics Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2006
yes, opposite, but none is better or worst ;p
just a way to say that we can depict many ways with images from a same word ;p (like we can related to many words and ideas from the same image).
OriginalNick Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2006
heh! That's great! But isn't the saying "A PICTURE is worth 1000 WORDS" ???
Isn't "A word is worth 1000 pictures> making as much sense ? ;) hihi
OriginalNick Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2006
I KNOW.. what you meant.. and that the way you have it makes all the more sense, to waht you have going on there... I was just saying that isn't the actual saying...
get it... doay punk..

I know what you meant.
:O yes I had it all wrong, written twice the same sentence ! :blush:
thank you to let me know :hug: I did the correction :)
OriginalNick Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2006
I didn't mean to come off as "hah!" or some shit like that... I really just wanted to know if I had been saying it wrong this entire time.
you got it right :D
