WELCOME TO OUR 2019 CONTESTS:

This is the First Contest of 2019. A WARM WELCOME to everyone especially new contestants and to all my Loyal Supporters that always enter. May you all have a Fantastic, Prosperous And Extremely Creative 2019. We start our 2019 contests beginning with a BRAND NEW CYCLE OF CONTESTS (Photography and Digital Art to follow later). A stunning way to start 2019 - on clean slate! I am looking forward to all your stunning submissions DV. this year. Also your support in the form of comments on my artworks, followings and social media promotions. Thanks to all that supported me in that way in 2018. Thanks so much again. Together we will make it work for 2019. Happy New Year 2019 to all!


PLEASE READ THE RULES OF THIS CONTEST WITH A TWIST VERY CAREFULLY AND ATTENTIVELY!

1. To enter this contest you will have to apply (just a short request and your FAA Portfolio site address) to the Contest Administrator for his permission to join the contest at http://www.gert-rheeders.fineartamerica.com (or click on his Avatar - on the right) through the FAA internal e-mail system. (To contact people on the FAA internal E-Mail system go to the avatar on the home page of the artist. Click on the 'contact' block, Then Click on 'Send Private Message' and then complete the message form and click on 'Send E-Mail')

2. In your application provide a link to your FAA Art Portfolio.

3. Once I receive your application I will visit your Art Portfolio and decide if your artwork in general is up to the Standard I am Looking for In This Contest. I will reply back to you with the following messages: either: 'Permission Granted To Participate' OR 'Permission denied to Participate'. All early applications will be answered.

4. Should you receive a message that you have been denied participation then IT DOES NOT MEAN that your artwork is bad or inferior. I am looking for a specific type of standard in composition and presentation of your whole Art Portfolio.

5. Should you receive a message that you can enter, submit or upload three of your very best artworks to the contest

6. I am not only going to look at your submitted entries but should I be in doubt
I will refer back to your whole art portfolio to get a clearer perspective.

7. I hereby request all intentional participants to follow the Permission to Participate rules to the letter as all submissions from artists which I did not grant permission to participate in this contest will be automatically and immediately be disqualified.

IN ADDITION TO WHAT HAS JUST BEEN MENTIONED:

A BRAND NEW RULE: - PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS CONTEST AS A PLATFORM TO PROMOTE YOUR ARTWORK WITHOUT FOLLOWING THE RULES AS I INTEND TO LIST THOSE PARTICIPANTS NAMES IN THE CONTEST DISCUSSION AREA AS SUBMITTING ENTRIES WITHOUT PROCEDURAL PERMISSION GRANTED. YOUR NAME WILL ONLY BE REMOVED FROM THIS LIST AFTER YOU FOLLOWED THE RULES TO SUBMIT AND YOU RECEIVED PERMISSION TO PARTICIPATE! GJR

8. Do not wait until the very last day to apply for permission to participate in this contest. Rather apply as soon as possible. You can then upload or submit your entries later. Please take note that I will only accept 250 artists maximum for this contest - another reason to get your application for permission in asap.

9. As I am only active on FAA for a certain number of hours of the day, please be patient. I will try to get to all applications and reply asap. Applications for permission to enter lodged on the very last day of submissions ARE not advised as there is a good chance that I will not be able to work through it. In any case remember that I will only accept 250 artists maximum.

10. All Artwork media and themes will be allowed. No Photographs or Digital Art for this contest please as I plan to create a seperate contests on the same rules for photographers and Digital Artists after this contest has run it's course.

11. As usual this contest, like my other contests on FAA, will be adjudicated by myself.

12, Consider visiting my Art Portfolio and make at least one positive or encouraging
comment. More than 5725 artworks to be seen. (Quick Link - Click on my Avatar)

13. Enjoy this contest and please stick to the rules.

14. Once permission is granted to participate you can submit maximum three
entries.

15. I intend to submit three Artworks to obtain fair exposure but they will not be taken into consideration in the adjudication process.
