PortraitClub

The place for portraiture
Hello everyone! :wave:

As with every year, we leave it up to our members to choose our annual contest theme. This year the theme is “shadows.” As you know, we leave the theme open to the interpretation of the artist, so you can interpret the theme in any way you like.

Like in past years, there will be three places and a great opportunity to earn a premium membership.  Also, as we do every year, we will be accepting prize donations. Prize donations can be anything from points, to memberships, to free commission work, or physical prizes like money or art supplies.

For more information on rules and deadlines, please read our criteria and requirements below.

Contest Criteria and Requirements

:bulletgreen: The contest is open for submissions as of March 27th, 2014. The final date for submissions will be June 15th. This gives artists over two months to put something together for the contest!

:bulletorange: The work absolutely must have the word ‘shadows’ in either the title or artist’s comments of the work. This is so we know you actually mean to submit to the contest and did not click the wrong folder.

:bulletyellow: Your submission must be a portrait. You also should follow are general rules and criteria: portraitclub.deviantart.com/jo…

:bulletred: You may submit as many submissions as you like, but only one can win!

:bulletpurple: The work should not pre-date the contest. This means any works submitted to DeviantArt before March 27th to the contest folder will be declined.

:bulletblue: You must be a member of the PortraitClub. Joining is very easy, just click the join button, and you are a member!

:bulletpink: We accept photography, traditional work, and digital work. We do not accept photo-manipulations or literature.
