GDD Contest: To tell a story

Sat Aug 30, 2014, 9:08 AM

GetDailyDeviations  is hosting an exciting contest for you ALL to participate in! We hope you're all very eager to create and submit your entries, please read the description, rules, and guidelines below!


To Tell a Story:

The theme of this contest is to tell a story, which is vague, but also very to-the-point. All artwork tells a story whether it intends to or not, as we all interpret what we wish to, when we see it. Your goal for this contest is to create a piece of art, with a specific story in mind. It can be your story, the story of someone you know, it can be fictional, it can be short, it can be sad, it can be happy. It can be anything! Be creative, unique, think outside of the box, or go to the basics. But your story must match the art you create to go with it (unless it is a literature submission in which obviously the writing is the story in itself).   

Rules & Guidelines:

Gold bullet Your submission must be a NEW deviation. You must have created it specifically for this contest, and posted it from August 30th onward. We will be checking, and declining submissions of old art.
Gold bullet In the description of your deviation you must state: This is for the GetDailyDeviations "To Tell a Story" contest. + a description of your story. This is very important. You must explain the story your art is describing, I recommend your description be at least a paragraph long. You want us to be impressed, you want us to see that this is something you put time and thought into creating and describing for us.
Gold bullet Please try to put some thought and time into your submissions, we will be looking for submissions in which: The art submitted has high quality, but also the story you tell in your description, is of quality, and fits well with your art. 
Gold bullet All mediums are accepted! So long as you have a "story" and follow the rules described above, your submission should be accepted into the contest folder.
Gold bullet All submissions are to be sent to the "To Tell a Story" Gallery folder, NOT the Featured folder. Also, you must be a member to submit.
Gold bullet You are only allowed 1 submission to this contest, so create, choose, and submit wisely!


Deadline: October 1st, 00:01AM PST


If you would like to offer prizes please let us know and we will update the list.

Right, I think I'm almost finished so I'll submit my entry soon, but I don't think it can compete with the other entries in the contest folder! ^^
It was fun doing it though. :3

But your story must match the art you create to go with it 
I don't really get this point :?
and I feel dumb cause of it D:<
Does it mean if I'm a photographer my entry has to be a photograph or what? D:

No, you can enter whatever you want. That line means that the story you write in your description, has to have a link to your deviation. For example, if I were to submit a portrait of a woman, and in my description write a story about a superhero conquering the world, that wouldn't work, cause they have nothing to do with each other, you know?

We might extend it a couple of weeks yes, since a lot of people seem to still be working on their entries ^^
