Contest The Colours of Renewal 2015Colours of Renewal Entry by Mirz123


As usual, March is the month for TheFavouriteShowcase to celebrate its anniversary (5 years now) and the time for the annual contest has come!
It's the renewal season, after a cold, damp, grey Winter (I know, not in the South Hemisphere - but you continue to have good weather there so you will be with the right mood to participate too).
Let's welcome the Sun, the blue skies, the warm weather with our annual contest "The Colours of Renewal"!

This year the celebrations will be bigger and more fantastic :iconsomeconfettiplz: as 3 more groups are joining the Party!!!
But what do I want to see on this 5th contest?
The same as the previous years: 
Vibrant colours! Warming sensations! Brightness! Joy!

Again we are welcoming "The Colours of Renewal" but this year only with one theme: FLOWERS and you can participate with Photography, Traditional Art, Digital Art and Photomanipulation.

To each group joining the contest it was determined a category:

Soulcollectors: TRADITIONAL ART


AllArtSupport: DIGITAL ART

Only members of the groups can participate, so if you aren't a member just join us. You don't have to be a member in all, just in the ones you want to submit to.
Take in consideration that this is a contest - to be fair, YOU (who is participating) will have to vote! Not in a poll, you will have to do a little more effort ;)
if you don't vote, you won't be eligible to win!

Please read all the

Rules to enter the Contest "The Colours of Renewal"


:bulletred: The theme of this contest is FLOWERS
The works should be coloured: the exception is traditional art, where you may submit graphite (or an alike medium) works.
The works must be new on dA (posted on or after the 25th February 2015)
Example: you may use an old photo from 2012, no worries about the camera data, or a drawing from 2013, no worries about the date in your signature, if you used it, but to be accepted the date of the submittion to deviantART must be the 25th February 2015 or after.

:bulletred: You have to be a member to submit into the contest folder.
You don't have to be a member in all groups, just in the ones you want to submit to.

:bulletred:There is only one folder to submit on each group, you should submit accordingly the category. Remember you have to be a member in the group to submit. 
Example: you are a member in AllArtSupport and you want to enter the contest with a photo then you have to be a member in TheFavouriteShowcase as well.

:bulletred: The contest folders on each group open on the 25th February and will be closed on the 20th April.

:bulletred: All Members are welcome to join the contest and can submit one piece on each folder: remember, all works should be new and submitted to dA after or on the 25th February
Literature isn't accepted, though you can submit Visual Literature on the "CONTEST FLOWERS - Digital Art" Folder at AllArtSupport.

:bulletred:The sumissions to the different media are divided by the participant groups, so pay attention:

Bullet; Red You have to use our stamp :iconthefavouritecontests::iconthefavouritecontest2: on your artist's comments*. THIS IS A MUST!  Submissions without this stamp in the artist's comments* will not even be considered and declined right away.
The stamp will provide a direct link to the Rules: As this stamp is made by 2 plz accounts, all deviants (Premium and Non-Premium DA members) can use it on their comments. You can copy it here:
: iconthefavouritecontests :: iconthefavouritecontest2 : (remove the spaces).
*what is the artist's comments? Artist's Comments by Egil21

:bulletred: The submissions aren't automatically accepted, I'm supervising them to make sure they fit the theme and follow the rules. 
Very important!
this will be a long contest (almost 2 months) and the theme is common, very popular and easy to produce - so there will be an important factor: quality.
Only the best works, those which have noticeable time of preparation, good composition and, of course, respecting the rules, will be accepted. 
Sketches, WIPs, unfocused/blurry photos, pieces with dA watermark, pieces with artist's comments like "I was bored", "drawing time: 15minutes", "my camera sucks at macro and close-up" or "I'm bad drawing petals" will be most likely declined. 

Examples of works

Acceptable flower by llovegood Flower Field by GraphixFreak
 Field of flowers by Gilberto-Mattos Flower Power by daekazu
Surely declined  Flower by my-goddess digital flower drawing by DevonDavis
 Sketch: Flower by XxMaddy
flower by dannygoedicke

I reserve to myself the right to decline the submissions without notice (if you don't have the time to read the rules, I surely don't have the time to play the babysitter and tell you what you did wrong). 
But you will have one more chance to review the rules and submit another work. 
Anyway, be sure to follow the rules!

:bulletred: The voting period will be: 23th April - 5th May
Winners are announced on the 10th May.

When the time comes to vote you will be voting on each category and each category will have the correspondent prizes.
 YOU will be the judge! 
All the members entering the contest will have to vote and only the members entering the contest will vote. 
When the time comes I'll tell you how to vote. If you don't vote to choose your favourites, then you won't be eligible to win.

:bulletred: You can see all the works entering the contest on our Contest Folder (one for each group):

:bulletred: The prizes* are:

:bulletpink: 1st Place on each category:  500 points

Hello :wave:

This is a quick note to let you know that I have become the Founder of the groups Soulcollectors and Global-Photos.

All deviants are welcome to join these groups and submit their art, neither of the 3 groups are elitist, we really like your artistic vision and effort at trying to be the best.

Stay tuned for the upcoming contests and challenges:

TheFavouriteShowcase opens the next challenge on the 1st (all media, old or new work) - more info here thefavouriteshowcase.deviantar…

Thanks for featuring my work!

Finally I have more time now and took a closer look at your group, and yep, I like it very much. No half-finished works, no total beginner art, just nearly everything are eye candies.
Fantastic :heartyfaint:
