TALES OF TREES contest - CLOSED!

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 4, 2013, 9:59 AM


THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED NOW. THE VOTING BLOG WILL BE UP SOON.


This is a new, joint contest of :icontreelovers: and :icontreephotographers:


Deadline: August 31st


Medium: We will have two categories, judged separately.

1. Art - digital, traditional, literature, artisan crafts, photomanipulation using more stock images: submit to the contest folder in :icontreelovers: - treelovers.deviantart.com/gall…

2. Photography - photography and photomanipulation without altering the subject of the photo (use of filters): submit to the contest folder in :icontreephotographers: - treephotographers.deviantart.c…


Submission limit: You can submit up to 2 artworks in each category (4 artworks together). You need to be a member of the group hosting the category where you are going to submit. (TreeLovers for art, Treephotographers for photography).


The sumbissions should be new, posted to devianArt in June 2013 or later. Please state in the comments that you are submitting the work into this contest and link back to the contest journal.


Topic: TALES OF TREES

Trees can achieve a great age, standing in one place and looking down at the land and people living there, witnessing everything that happens there for centuries. It is natural that a tree got an important place in many stories: myths and legends, fairy-tales, local legends about a particular tree... This contest is about trees, but it should be a tree with a tale that you depict in your art. The tale can be an old legend about the World Tree Yggdrasil, Tree of Knowledge from the Bible, or dryads from the Greek mythology. It can be a fairy-tale, like those you can find in this collection. It can be a true story about an old tree that someone famous planted, or hid in its hollow before pursuers. It can be a new story that you invented, but a tree should have a main role in it. And how to depict it?


In the Art category: You can paint, draw, sculpt or write about any of the above mentioned examples. The tale you are depicting should be obvious in the artwork, but if it's not so, it should be written in the artist's comments. We are not looking just for a depiction of the trees from myths and stories, the story should be happening in the picture, if possible.

Examples:

suffering odin by vaenaton living tree by AnnWeaver What do you think you're doing, you fool? by Juliano-Pereira

May I stay here? by asiapasek BUNNY'S ALBINO BABY LANTERN TREE by XBUDDYFORME Tree of Innocence by VisAnastasis



In the Photography category: Again we do not want just a photo of a tree, but a photo telling a story about a tree. You can take a photo of an old tree that is famous for something that happened under it, and write the tale in the artist's comments, but we would rather like to see you stage and replay the story in the photo, or invent a new one. There can be someone interacting with the tree, or some things arranged in a way that it looks like something happened there - it's just on your imagination how creative you'll get.

Examples:

  checking for shelter by maximila Ungoliant kills the Trees by MirachRavaia reflection... by BaxiaArt

 :thumb170585021: metamorphose by LailaPregizer I Am  A Tree Protector by JeanFrancois


Judging: Both categories will be judged separately by members' voting, and the first three places will be announced. The voting will be by comments on a voting journal, which we will post after the deadline of the contest.

First make sure it fulfills all rules - it should be submitted in June 2013 or later, and state in the comments that you are submitting the work into this contest and link back to the contest journal. If it does, then remove it from the group and submit it again in the contest folder: when you open the picture, on the right side next to it should be a list of groups it is in. Just hover your mouse over the name of the group you want to remove it from, and an edip button should appear. If it doesn't work, note me with the link to the picture.

Hi! I've got a question for the art category: I've created something in the artisan craft's category and taken shots from different angles and detail shots. Can I submit a collage of those photos or does it have to be one single photo?:)

As you want, it will still count as one entry in the voting. You might have a problem with the folder sumbission limit though, so note me if you encounter it.

So poetry's alright... and would you prefer that I find a dA visual of a tree to go with it (with permission)?

As you like, the poem is what matters and if it's accompanied by a visual or not shouldn't matter in the contest.
