I have seen numerous contests where digital art is banned from entering a contest. I get some will rotate the contests from traditional art, photography, and digital art. But many...will accept anything, including photography; but will ban digital art.
I know some folks don't look at digital art as 'real' art. I get that some applications can be easy, and seems almost unfair to some artists that it should be considered art.
However... In my case...many of what I submit can take up to 12 to 15 hours to complete. I don't just apply a digital application. I also add and subtract objects, add some digital applications manually, use my tools to blend colors together, and add digital sketching. As a digital artists myself, I know the hours I put into a piece of art, and I am proud of my work.
I also realize that many artists do appreciate digital artists, and I thank you for that... But over the last few weeks, it seems that more and more contests are banning digital art from being submitted. I've noticed that I am not able to enter as many contests, as I used to...
So...I want to start a contest celebrating digital artists. Every contest I have held so far on FAA, (and there have been many)...has allowed all medium submissions. This will be my first contest that will have a major restriction where mediums are concerned.
Here are the rules...
*ONLY DIGITAL ART WILL BE ACCEPTED. All other mediums will be removed without notice, with the exception of mixed media. If I see a piece of mixed media art that has been heavily processed through a digital application...those images can be submitted. A light application on a photo, and/or traditional art is not considered digital art in my opinion, and will be removed without noticed.
*YOU MUST list your art as digital art and/or mixed media art, or they will be removed.
*Due to Christmas coming, text is allowed on your art.
*Please keep it family friendly. No nudes or images of a violent nature. They will be removed without notice.
*Contest is for fun.
*Due to the holidays, I am also allowing public voting to help boost sales; though I am never a fan of solicitation voting.
*Winners can feel free to submit their winning images to the sponsoring group (Contest Winners Group).
*So lets see some great digital art...
Each participant may submit 2 images.
1) Votes may be cast by any visitor to FineArtAmerica.com (members and non-members).
2) You may only vote once per image.
3) You may vote for as many images as you like... but only once for any given image.
