Hi, on behalf of #AnotherContestGroup I (knittywitty) have listed your contest in our journals [link] Please inform us if there is any changes to your contest, preferably before the end date. Also if you wish for your contest to be removed and not promoted by ourselves please also tell us so that we may remove it. I would also like to point out to you that =missimoinsane does a monthly news article and this contains all current contests each month. You can find these listings in our main journal "welcome & contest information" [link] Also, we try to post this information in our poll once the news article is up so all our watchers are notified of this - perhaps watch us if you're not already for this and more information.

Sorry to come across as a bit "thick" /stupid. But it is just specifically open to Fine Art Prints? So I can't for example use [link] or any other deviants deviations which have only been set to "Print", that aren't photographs.

codenamepanther Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2011
Correct, for this specific contest we are looking for Fine Art Prints. Your Print and the Prints you select must be available as Fine Art Prints.

2 Questions:

1) Do entries have to be in separate journals or can I upload 1 journal with 4 sections for 4 different themes and sets of art?

2) What if a person likes photo prints more anyways? (Aka I don't have any of my art I feel is print/fine art print worthy) Can I still enter if my print entry isn't fine art but a photo print instead?

Thanks!

1) Separate Journals :D
2) This contest is specific to Fine Art Prints.


Thanks for asking.

Just a question - can it have a larger setting than the 20X30? Or does the 20x30 have to be the largest fine art print available?
Reply
:iconcodenamepanther:
codenamepanther Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2011
It can have a larger size but if you were to win we will would print the 20''x30''.

For instance it can be:
12''x18''
20''x30"
24"x36''

That's fine but if it were only available as a 24''x36'' it wouldn't qualify. :D

Hope that helps!
