Please check this out. A cool monthly contest where I will be one of the judges:-)
Welcome to the Gnomon Workshop Forum community gallery contest…
We have launched a small forum to allow our community the opportunity to share their work. These are not critique or discussion posts, but purely the sharing of artwork produced via traditional or digital means.
Every month our producers will select four winners from the 2D, 3D and Digital Sculpting categories (twelve winners total), who will receive up to twenty-five Gnomon Workshop DVDs! (winners get to choose of course).
Simply post examples of what you consider to be your most accomplished work in the forum thread. At the end of each month our judges will choose their favorite images which will then be announced in the forum. The first place winner will receive 25 DVDs, second place 15 DVDs, third place 10 DVDs and fourth place 5 DVDs. Winners will be contacted via the email address used at forum sign-up, the first week of every month.
Q. What criteria are used to pick the winner? Well, this should not be seen as some sort of brutal competition. We love to see new artists emerge, and this seemed as a good way to give artists exposure, while rewarded them for their talents. The winners will be based on our judge’s personal criteria.
Q. Isn’t it unfair that the people who need the DVDs the most are at the biggest disadvantage in this contest? Not true… we often award prizes to people whose CONCEPTS or IDEAS are excellent, regardless of technical execution. While first place tends to bias to a combination of concept AND technical merit, we often choose winners who show POTENTIAL.
