The time has come, dear Imps! The time of the 2015 Fan Art Contest! I hope you're as excited about this event as I am. It's one of my favorite times of the year.
If you are eager to contribute to this year's contest and see your work featured here on the Goldstone Wood blog for all the world to enjoy and vote on, here are the rules:
1. You must create Goldstone Wood-themed art. This can be in any visual medium you prefer--drawings, paintings, quilts, knitting, pottery, photography, photomanipulation, jewelry, stick figures, video, sculpting, crafting . . . anything you like! It must be recognizably related to Goldstone Wood in some way, but other than that, the sky is the limit!
2. You must email a JPG image of your art (no PDFs, PNGs or other formats, please) to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than midnight, March 28, 2015, Eastern.
EDIT: Please include: Your Name, Title of Your Piece, and the Medium.
3. You may submit as many pieces as you like.
4. Your images will be displayed in a series of blog posts which will go live on April 1, 2015.
5. The winners of this contest will be chosen via Fan Voting. Note: Voting is open to fans of the series only. Please don't ask family or friends who have not read the series to vote on your work. (However, if they HAVE read the series, they are welcome to contribute their votes.)
6. First, Second, and Third-place winners will be announced on April 11, 2015. (Runners-up may also be selected, but that will be up to my discretion.)
The Third Place Winner will receive one autographed Goldstone Wood novel of her or his choice.
The Second Place Winner will receive two autographed Goldstone Wood novels of her or his choice.
And the First Place Winner will receive one autographed advance copy of Draven's Light, two other autographed Goldstone Wood novels of her or his choice, and . . . .
|Monster wants it known that he was not a willing participant in this image.|
. . . this most excellent Bard of Rudiobus hat!
This hat was made to order by the amazingly talented Paula Pruden-Macha. Didn't she do a wonderful job? And admit it . . . haven't you always wanted an Eanrin hat? Complete with starflower button and plumes?
So there you have it, dear creatively-minded Imps! The 2015 Fan Art contest is officially launched. Go forth and create!
