The tandem contest!

Mon Feb 20, 2017, 2:06 AM
Yes, yes, you heard it, it's contest time!

And this time, we will ask you to collaborate with someone! :eager:

Arrow Bullet (Rainbow) - F2U! by Drache-Lehre So how does it work?


The point of this contest will be to be paired with an artist of another art style (either poems, macro or stock). You'll have to work together to merge your different art styles into one cohesive creation.

In other words, you will have to:
- Either merge a poem with either a stock image or a macro photograph (or vice versa) so the poem will be part of the macro photograph or stock image (like here or here) or include it in the description section of your deviation (like here). 
- Or merge a macro photograph with a stock image (or vice versa).

Arrow Bullet (Rainbow) - F2U! by Drache-Lehre THE RULES! (please read carefully)


- Your entry must:  
1) mention that your work is for the "Tandem contest" 
2) include the link to this journal
3) mention the artist with whom you collaborated with.

- The piece that you want to use for this contest can either be an existing piece or a brand new one.
Both artists who worked together have to submit their final piece, and they have to be the exact same deviation. You work in pairs, remember? 
Visual poetry is accepted! 
- Once your piece is ready, one person from the tandem will submit the final piece to the "Tandem Contest 2017" folder.
- For visual artists: please avoid using obstructive watermarks. 

More specifically:
Arrow Bullet (Rainbow) - F2U! by Drache-LehreFor the poets:
- Your poems have to be in English only please. You can add some stanzas in a foreign language, but not the whole poem.

Arrow Bullet (Rainbow) - F2U! by Drache-LehreFor the macro photographers:
- It has to be a close up or a macro 
- Your photograph has to be at least 1280 pixels wide (It is the “Display options” / “Size: 1280 pixels wide” or “Size: 1600 pixels wide” widget when you submit your photograph, underneath the “Contains Mature Content?”).

Arrow Bullet (Rainbow) - F2U! by Drache-LehreFor the stock artists:
- Any medium is allowed for stock
- You need to abide by the FAQ 809.

And no, there is no theme! 


Now, if you would like to participate, leave a comment in this journal.


You will need to tell us:
  • Your speciality: poetry, stock image or macro (or two or all three of these categories :D). Depending on your "speciality", you will be randomly paired with an artist from a different category. Only us, and ONLY us, the judges, will get to pair you with someone. Example: if you are a poet, you will be either be paired with a stock artist or a macro artist. 
  • Tell us if you're willing to participate more than once to make sure that everyone  is paired with someone. N.B.: if you happen to be in the top three more than once, know that you will only win the "best" of the two prizes. 



  Arrow Bullet (Rainbow) - F2U! by Drache-Lehre DEADLINES

Be aware that if you sign up for this contest, you will have to find a way to be able to work with the other person that you will be paired with despite of the time difference, your different occupations etc... But this will be your own responsibility, we will be only judging the final piece, not your interactions :)

Drawings if it is a stock ONLY since any medium is accepted FOR STOCK.
In any case, it is too late to sign up for this contest anyway, the deadline passed :)

Stock and resources are essentially pictures or other digital content that is intended to be used by other people for their art.

For example, this brilliant artwork has been created from/inspired by the colorscape and shape of one of my textures:
Yu Kanda by jesterry Digital Texture Artwork 283 by mercurycode

The most common use are probably photomanipulations like this one, utilizing stock photos by different people in order to create a complex piece:
Witch by aspiro87
made from:
Stock - Dark godess pose romantic gothic dance by S-T-A-R-gazer   Trail of Rocks 04 CD-STOCK by CD-STOCK  & sky stock yay by TanithLipsky

I hope that gives you an idea! If you'd like to read up a bit more on stock:
FAQ #217: What are "Stock and Resources" and can I use them in my submissions?
- FAQ #809: What are DeviantArt's stock image guidelines?

Hello there, thank you for your interest for the contest, but unfortunately, you are one day late and thus cannot participate. Indeed, as the journal explained: "From February, 20th to March, 6th, PST: Time to apply and leave a comment if you want to participate!"

Thank you for your understanding :)

As mercurycode said: Every medium is allowed, just keep in mind that it's gonna be paired with either poetry or macro. :) (Smile)

Would you like to participate for stock? If so, would you like to participate more than once to be sure that everyone is paired?
