New & Improving!
:squee:


(Check to see our new closing date!)

Hello members :eager:! It is my pleasure to introduce you to our first competition of 2013!

This competitions aims to introduce people to new forms of art and help existing artists improve.

The competition will last about 8-9 weeks and each fortnight we'll focus on a different type of art: traditional, digital, literature and photography then the last week being prizes/judging.

As we are trying to help improve artists we will be collecting helpful tutorials and advice to direct our new and improving artists!

So we will look at traditional mediums first and then after that we'll focus on digital etc... Submit here: Traditional amatuer-artists.deviantart.com…  Digital amatuer-artists.deviantart.com… Literature amatuer-artists.deviantart.com… Photography amatuer-artists.deviantart.com…

In the fifth week our judges will look over all the entries submitted and decide who has improved the most or made the greatest entry in that field of art!

Starting date: 11/1/13 (Entries submitted before this date will not be included in judging)
Closing date:  8/3/13   (Entries submitted after this date will not be included in judging except in exceptional circumstances. Please note the group if you believe you wouldn't be able to submit an entry before then)

Rules:
:bulletgreen: You must submit a new piece of art.
:bulletgreen: You must submit your entry in it's folder.
:bulletgreen: You may take part in as many or as little of the weeks as you want! So if you really don't enjoy photography we won't  force you to take pictures! :)
:bulletgreen: You are allowed to submit up to four entries. One for each medium we look at.
:bulletgreen: You can submit any entry up until the closing date!

So... do I have to redo and improve a specific piece of art from my gallery, or just do anything at my hardest, then you compare it to the rest of my gallery? Thanks :heart:

You don't have to redo and improve a specific piece of art, you can come up with something new if you like :).

Nice contest!
But I'm also a bit confused...
What does it mean, that you are going to be "focused" on different types of art every fortnight while the artists have time for all types of art until 13-3-8?^^ who is supposed to do what when?^^

QuizzicalHarpy Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
We are going to be explaining about different art types so this fortnight there will be a journal or two aimed at introducing you to tradition mediums or improving your skill at handling that media. These journals are only meant to help those participating they don't have to influence your entry in any way :)

So who's supposed to do what?: We at #Amatuer-Artists will publish these journals to help you and you can submit an entry when ever you like (up until the closing date). You don't need to use the help or advice in the journal, it's up to you.

Feel free to ask any more questions or send us a note! :)

Any particular theme to what the piece has to be about? Or can it be about anything?

There's no theme, you can make what you like! Though we will be putting out more journals with tutorials, tips and advice if you need any help! :)

Is the feature in this group or a different? Amature-artists is a different group than this...


Also can we draw anything?
