Contest at BeautifulScapes

Summer Seaside Contest…
Sat May 18, 2013, 2:19 PM by ~AquamarineQ
Us founders have been very inactive lately so to make up for it, we'll be holding an awesome contest for you guys .


Participants should submit photos/paintings/drawings related to summer, nature and water (can be ocean, sea, lake, anything).

Deadlines and such

You can submit from this day on until 1st September ! However it must be in this folder: [link] . If one fails to submit their photos there, they won't be taken into consideration. Btw, there's a limit of 5 photos per participant so only post your best work!

Judging and prizes

Our co-founder *Calisaroa and I will be deciding, however we'll have polls through which members can vote as well. If, say, 60% of members vote Picture X which the two of us don't particularly like, he or she will get a popularity prize consisting of their works being featured in this group after the contest is over. The winners (so the ones whose pictures we will like most) will get prizes as following:
1st place - 400 points
2nd place - 200 points
3rd place - 100 points
all participants - 1 llama

I would also like to add that only BeautifulScapes members can join this contest. I guess this was about all. Good luck to all of you and I really hope we'll get many nice submissions .

Photography 3 Gallery

The Photography 2 gallery is now full. A new Photography 3 Gallery has been opened. Please submit your photographic work there.

Many Thanks

Another Affiliate :iconi-heart-colors: is hosting a competition to do with complementary colours ==>…   I-Heart-Colors: Opposites Attract Contest CLOSEDEDIT: The contest folder is now closed for submissions. We have received lots of great entries and the admins will now proceed to vote on them. Stay tuned for the winners! :heart:
Overview :
I-Heart-Colors is announcing the launch of the  “Opposites Attract” Competition.
What to do ? :
Entrants must submit a piece of work (2D or 3D), that represents two or more contrasting colors. Contextualised, abstracted, trailing narrative or defined by the surface of the image, it is the artists decision how he/she chooses to portray the idea.
What are Contrasting/Complementary Colours ?:
Also known as contrasting colors, complementary colors are directly opposite each other on the color wheel. Selecting contrasting colors is useful when you want to make the colors stand out more vibrantly. If you are composing a picture of lemons, using a blue background will make the lemons stand out more. Some examples of contrasting

Folder Submission Mistakes (Update 22.01.2014)

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 22, 2014, 7:41 AM
a friendly happens often again the last time.....

Hello everyone, I am making this journal to bring everyone's attention submission mistakes. Normally I'm okay with just moving them to the right place, because there's only a few per day. But today there were a LOT of things going into the wrong folders. There were digital things going into the traditional folder and quite a few flash-animations going into a few different folders that they shouldn't have gone in. So, I would like to ask everyone nicely if they could possibly be more careful when submitting things to our folders and making sure they go in the correct ones. It would make things easier for us and be very much appreciated. If a folder is full, please let us know and we will create a new one. But if you have reached your 3 per folder per day limit, please don't just put the rest into just any folder.It makes it pretty hard to keep track of everything.

                                                                                                                                                Please and thank you

ArtWorldToday is a Group for anyone who enjoys art. You don't have to make it to be a member. Art comes in all forms and what is art to one person might not be art to another. So you must be kind to other members. We will have beginners as well as established artists in this group, so there is a variety to look at.

My husband and I used to live in a town that had a active Art Walk. We enjoyed going on the First Friday of every month. There were so many talented artists in the town we lived in, and this was a way for people to notice them. We have since moved and the town we live in now doesn't have a Art Walk that show cases artists the way our old town did. I miss the environment of the Art Walk, I miss the getting to know the artists and I miss seeing all the new artwork.

I thought fine I will make my own First Friday Art Walk here on the web. I hope that we will build a fun group with lots of networking, interaction and support amongst artists of different types and abilities.

Not everyone can go to an Art Walk but here on the internet we can have our own form of Art Walk. On the First Friday of every month we will feature new artists for the month!
