Hey, if you want to revive the photo contest, knock yourself out.  I might randomly join that one as well, like I used to,

 

One thing that helps with all the contests is knowing what the theme is ahead of time.  With the WSAC, the themes are known ahead of time (unless that's changed since I last looked) and if you don't like the current theme, you can work ahead.  

 

Poetry is fine as is since the entry time is longer and honestly, it's easier to come up with something to fit the theme.  But other contests - you need to know what to work towards since you need some time to get your artwork together.  It really helps if you know that a theme about flowers is coming up and you find the perfect photo to take or create a lovely painting or whatever ahead of time to enter later.

 

As for a comic contest, something I saw on another forum was a "fill the bubble" contest.  You pick a random manga page, erase all the text and then people make something up.  Everyone has to do the same page and then we vote.  Might be worth thinking about.

 

Also, I refuse to let the short story contest die!  I swear to the forty little gods, I will eventually write a story for that and win by default!   :domo:

I am SO down for that.

Just don't make me run it.

We could also have a rotating, general art contest for type instead of theme...

Round 1 is Photography.

Round 2 is Painting.

Round 3 is Comic-Strip.

Round 4 is... whatever.

That'd get old fast, and not everybody is good or even decent at all those things. I know that I'd be completely unable to participate in two of those.

it WOULD give artists a cool down time however so that its not ust endless contest after contest after contest.

also id REALLY like to meet the philanthropist who could compete and win in all hose different contests. that person would be the true definition of a "renaissance man"

when you love something..  and I mean. really love it.  you fight for it for as long as you can until you cant stand any longer.  then when its all said and done, walk away with a smile hoping you did right.

We could do that as a sort of interest check though. Whichever random contest has a lot of participation could be turned into a full-time contest?

Suggestion for Photography Contest: what if the names of the contestants don't get revealed until the voting is closed--just like in the Quarterly OMF Banner Contest? Would prevent/lessen the impact of Powah of Friendship when voting's up, I think.

 

(This could go with other contests, but I intend to post this one especially for Photo Contest.)

That's how I thought it was going to be, too.  At least that was the impression I got with having to PM entries rather than post them in a thread.  Sometimes, having it be a blind vote is nice.

@Tom Ace @ReZureXio @MamaFox @retroluffy13 @Grimmjagger @Baka-Dynasty @ShinRyuu @thekindmoose @DrBla @Red Opus @Koneko_Neko @RhyssaFireheart

is anyone of our artists, writers, and storymakers interested into a drawing contest done for fun?
(or as serious as you want to take it)


 

the drawing contest could follow the same setup as the poetry contest, where every contest has a theme, and the winner of each run decides the next theme


 

it would also be interesting to have contests with special restrictions (the winner could decide that too)

 

like: use only grayscale(no colors), use only MS Paint(version 6 and below), use only colors(no black), don't use a specific color, etc

I'm cool with that. 

 

I would say if you are going to have a art contest make sure the subject isn't to wide. So i would go with something like: B&W Sketch of "X", Watercolor (traditional or digital) of "X", Monochromatic coloring of "X", and other things like that.

mmm, depends if the contest is about drawing skill alone, or it also includes creativity in the formula

 

but since every winner picks the next theme, it should tune by itself

 

we could have a setup poll to decide the first theme, if more people have themes to suggest

so you would be interested in a specific subject?

 

 

@Saya are you going to manage the first contest?

ye idk if technicality is the way to go here.  I mean its probably just me, but idfk wtf you mean by water colors without looking it up.  I know enough to know its a pallet butt beyond that implementing such things aren't going to be my strong suit.

 

but again.  most people who do art probably study it so its probably just me, but I thought id put it out there.


 

just saying:  if we go by technicality i probably wouldnt enter half of the contests just from a lack of knowledge on the subject.

If you have too wide of a subject like "draw something in monochrome" then you could get anything from drawings of cars to buildings to characters to nature, and if this is going to be a contest then you need some kind of standard theme (draw cars as an example) and not a standard method like only drawing in monochromatic.

 

Of course this is my mindset coming from all the contests over at DA where the rules are a lot more strict. If you want it to be a lot more casual and care free then that's cool with me.  :kakashi:

ah no, i see the misunderstanding now

 

each contest should have a theme = a subject

having limitations on the methods used to draw the theme = restrictions (or condition)

 

a contest can have a "theme" and no "restrictions", or have both a "theme" and a "restriction", but a "theme" is always there

sorry for the confusion


 

or if conditions generate so much confusion, we can just have themes, and play it simple


 

an example:

 

theme: Light

restriction: use your non-dominant hand to draw

Sarah poop is still alive ? Can that be the thème of the first contest ? Poop that is . And joke aside I cant draw for shit but since drawing is something I can do during my 4 hours of train per day I can definitely take part in it. Tho dont expect anything relatively good. And I dont see myself using anything but à pen and a pencil
