Contest Rules

Medium ChallengeAs artists we can push ourselves to explore different forms of media that are outside of our comfort zone. After all, it's how we grow our skill set!

This contest is to show off some of your work that is in a media that you do not typically use.

For example, I usually work with Watercolor, Pastels, and Ink, but the contest picture was my first time exploring Digital painting. Often we find that starting out with a new medium is difficult, but practice makes perfect!


1) All mediums are allowed (including digital and photography)
2)The piece you submit must be done in a medium that is NOT something you regularly use or is outside of your specialty.
3) Preferably, the piece you submit is your first time exploring the new medium.
4) Each artist can submit 1 work
5) Voting is open to all Pixels/FAA members!

Thanks and good luck to everyone participating! As always, feel free to check out my gallery here on Pixels or have a look at my Instagram: @bens_pen
