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! (If you feel the extension of the deadline is unfair, feel free to edit the submission you've already made, however, you cannot submit a new entry, and you can only edit the deviation you have already had accepted by us.)


Deadline: October 14th, 00:01AM PSt


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

After looking at everyone else's entries, I can say for sure i won't win, but I can't wait to see who will win!!!!!
This contest was fun, and my art has improved over the last 2 months, XD
since I submitted my entry, I feel like I could draw it slightly better, but I think its best to leave what I drew with the same story I had in mind, XD
