Contest Rules

Edit My ArtEdit My Art v. 2021.11

This real time contest is open to all FAA artists and members.
It runs for three weeks... two weeks for submissions with a one week voting phase.
Just select something found ANYWHERE in my ONLY A FINE DAY images or collections and modify it, however you want.

Be inspired. Be creative.
Draw it, paint it, modify it, collage it, deconstruct it, blend it, whatever and however you are moved.

I'm pretty flexible on what you do as long as I can recognize that you started with MY art.

>> If you distort it beyond recognition, you definitely need to tell me what you did in the contest discussion tab, or risk deletion. <<

Reference site: https://fineartamerica.com/profiles/only-a-fine-day or https://only-a-fine-day.pixels.com/galleries.html

Live links and additional detail available in the contest discussions tab.
Please post your image, my source image, and process notes there too.
(i.e. a yours versus mine comparision shot using Embed codes and describe your technical means used).

Be warned: Parameters are specific.
Follow the rules to qualify as a valid entry.


1. BEGIN by selecting ANY of my images. If the image is in my portfolio, it's fair game.
Reference site: https://fineartamerica.com/profiles/only-a-fine-day or https://only-a-fine-day.pixels.com/galleries.html

2. EDIT that image or combination of images. Any style. Any medium.

3. * IMPORTANT: Finished works MUST HAVE referenced material listed (name of original work referenced).

4. * IMPORTANT: Include this copyright release statement IN YOUR DESCRIPTION: Used by permission of Only A Fine Day.

5. Include the date you completed the work in the description, on the work itself, or via the upload date. (PERMISSION to modify EXPIRES ON November 19, 2021); however, once made and notated, the resulting image is yours although it MUST retain proper credit and notations (Rule 3 and Rule 4).

6. Upload date MUST be on or after November 06, 2021, during the contest.
Exception: Those who entered a previous ONLY A FINE DAY EDIT MY ART CONTEST with an image that DID NOT WIN A FIRST PLACE STATUS, you are good to try again with that image, if you choose to do so.

7. (OPTIONAL: Select a SECOND IMAGE and repeat , or do a second version of the same image.)

8. OPTIONAL BUT HIGHLY ENCOURAGED: GO TO THE DISCUSSION TAB AND DESCRIBE YOUR EXPERIENCE AND/OR TECHNIQUE RELATING TO YOUR REVISION WORK. Post the original work plus your version of it. Bonus points from me toward a purchase reward if this contest generates at least 20 valid submissions, not counting my 3 submissions.

* Rules 3 & 4 are important to avoid plagiarism and to activate Fair Use.

**Any artwork uploaded before November 06, 2021, will be removed from the contest, except as provided in Rule 6.
**Any artwork that is not rooted in one of my images, will definitely be removed from the contest.
**And of course, any artwork that does not comply with the rules will be removed from the contest.

Example of a possible selection.
I'll enter a couple versions of this to give you an idea.
(see contest discussions)

Juried Bonus:
With a minimum of 20 valid qualified submissions, I will choose one from which to purchase a product. My choice. Could be from someone with the most votes or it could just be one of my favorites (juried). Every valid, qualified submission will have an equal chance to win, but I will give extra consideration to those posting the side-by-side before (mine) and after (yours) shots in the contest discussions.

Naturally, my submissions do not count towards the twenty.

To help us reach the 20 valid qualified submissions, I am increasing the entry limit to 3 pieces this time. Yay!
[Congratulations!! We have crossed the first 20 entries milestone! I WILL be making a purchase from some lucky contestant!!! Yay!]

Looking forward to seeing what YOU do with MY artwork.
