January Contest: Shapes



Welcome to the first contest of 2013 for the group! Since the last contest of 2012 went down well as it was mixed medias - we're going to let you enter with whatever type of Art you like. So you can enter Fractal, Photography, Digital Art or Traditional. The aim of this contest is to have a theme of Abstract Shapes within your work. Your work will be declined if it doesn't reflect this, so be sure to make the theme obvious in your piece of work! We're also opening up all of our folders again, so enjoy submitting your work once more!

Rules


:bulletblack: Entries must be NEW i.e created on or after 1st January 2013
:bulletblack: Entries must be Abstract and must have a theme of 'Shapes' with minimal manipulation. Black and white is allowed.
:bulletblack: You do need to be a group member to participate!
:bulletblack: Promotion of our contest is much appreciated - but not a necessity!

Prizes


1st Place: 6 month subscription and 200 Points
2nd Place: 3 month subscription and 100 Points

Dates?


Start: 1st Jan 2013
End: 29 Jan 2013

How to Enter?



Just pop along and submit your work to our group gallery found here.

Judging


Judging will be carried out by the administrative team of Abstract-and-Surreal Any questions on our judging process must be directed straight to the group. Prizes are provided courtesy of communityrelations so there could be a small delay in receiving them.

Must the photo have be taken this year? I have a photo I took a while ago that I think that will fit this category perfectly! Haven't uploaded it yet though... and it's a first for me - I usually don't do abstract :)

Ah - was wondering to be honest, because the person who got first place in the last competition took the photo on the 22nd November and the rules also stated that it had to be new from 1st December on :)
Thanks for the clarification :)

Well I think you can expect many B&W photography with a subject like that :lol:
The question is : how to not fall into this "easy" solution :p

First step : check the dictionary for additional meanings (very important, English is not my native language) :thumbsup:
Second step : try shapes in the DA search (ok it gives brush and pussy :rofl: ) :peace:
Third step : make a brainstorm... Ok I will see that next week :lol:
