:bulletyellow::bulletgreen:  This contest is now officially CLOSED for entries. We thank all for participating and we now ask that you be patient while we go over the voting process. The results may take anywhere from a few days to a week, but it should not take more than a week ( hopefully ) :)  :bulletyellow::bulletgreen:


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



:bulletpink:  Update - Prizes have been updated, as well, I'm going to extend the deadline just a bit with the hopes of getting some entries :)

----------------------------------------------------

Welcome to our new group, :iconancient-touch: ! This group focuses on the ancient cultures all over the world. To help kick things off here, we are going to hold a contest where you can win PM's, points, and other prizes.

The contest theme will be " Gods & Goddesses ".  You can only submit one entry of visual art ( sorry, no literature), so try to make it a good one!  You can choose to portray one god or goddess, or include one of each in your entry if you like.

Rules of the Contest:

1. You MUST be a member of the group to enter the contest :)

2. Only ONE ENTRY per person is permitted. You MUST have an account on DA that is at least 2 months old. Any account created after the date this contest began will not be qualified for entry.

3. This entry must be a new work, created solely for the purpose of this contest. Please, do not post any old works.        

4. You will create ONE visual artwork with either a god or goddess ( or both ) that hails from any one of the ancient cultures listed in the group ( please see the album section ). The work can be in any visual medium ( traditional, digital, photography, etc.) .  SORRY, but no Literature works will be accepted. * also, please add a small bit of info in your deviation description about the god or goddess you've chosen for your entry.

5. The work must be original and your own work. Anyone caught posting another artists work will be disqualified from the contest as well as removed from the group.

6. Entry must be received by midnight, APRIL 18th, 2014. I'm setting a nearly 2 month date for this to allow enough time to gather an idea and give everyone plenty of time for their work :)

7. Please submit your entry into the contest folder marked " Gods n Goddesses 2014 ".

"You will create ONE visual artwork with either a god or goddess ( or both ) "

I noticed from the currently submitted artwork that people only drew one god/goddess. However, it IS allowed for one submission to have both a god and goddess in it, correct?

I want to draw Apollo and Artemis (twins), that is why. 
Reply
:iconfaeorain:
faeorain Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
Yes, that is correct. As long as you portray at least one god or goddess, you are good. You can do more than one in the single submission, but there has to be at least one in the image. So yes, you can draw Apollo and Artemis.

Again, I'm sorry, but all of the details of the contest were in the rules from the beginning, including the 2 month stipulation. There are only 2 days left in the contest and to change this rule now after more than 2 months would not be right. There very well may have been some people who came across the contest, read through the rules thoroughly and realized they didn't qualify so they didn't enter. To change it now would be unfair to those people.

Quick question, can it be a invented god/goddess inspired by a culture? c:
Or must it be a god/goddess that had existed when that civilization was around?

It looks like someone else already approved it. Submissions are not automatically approved here, so when you submit something it has to be approved by a mod before it is added to the gallery. So, just for future reference, you don't need to keep resubmitting it...just submit it once and give us a little time to see and approve it :)

It has to be a god that was actually recognized and worshiped by an ancient culture.

like I said it has to be a god/goddess that was actually recognized and worshiped by an ancient culture. you seem to know more about that goddess so you decide if it would be a suitable entry or not based on that criteria.

I'm sorry, I'm not sure what TES is. The contest is only for actual established gods or goddesses from the ancient cultures of our planet throughout history. For example ( Hindu gods, Aztec gods, Greek gods, Norse gods)

Hi! :) I have a question regarding the contest :) The godess/god that we're going to draw, do they have to be one thats allready in your albums? Reading this journal that was the impression i got, but... i thought I'd ask anyway :) I have many godesses oand gods in mind, but I'm not sure if they are in your albums. Or is it that we can choose a god ourselves as long as it fits with one of the groups? :) Sorry for all my silly questions, hehe :)

Aztecatl13 Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
You can choose any god or goddess worshiped by any people. they don't have to be in the albums. In fact, we'd love to see ones that are not in the albums. 

But you have to give some information about the god or goddess and the people who worshiped it in the description of your artwork when you upload it.

No, it just has to be any actual god or goddess, from any mythology of any ancient cultures from around the world. Like, it can't be a made up one, it has to be an already established god or goddess. The group albums are just to display members artwork that pertain to ancient cultures, and have nothing to do with the actual contest. There is a specific contest folder you will submit your work into, but you can choose any deity that you like.

Well, I think he was a god, but yes, you can use any god or goddess. I suppose also, if you'd like to draw a female version of the god, that is okay to, as long as it still personifies the deity.

I have submitted my contest entry 3 times, and without fail it has not shown up as a submitted image to the folder for such images.
There must be some kind of setting change needed for me to be able to submit my image to this folder.:thumb438706010:

There isn't any problem. We have it set up that submissions are not automatic, we have them set up to be approved first, so it had to wait until one of the mods could approve it. I just added it now. So from now on, you can submit your pics to albums just like you have, but you only need to do it one time. It may take a day or two until we get to it, but usually it's quicker than that.

Excuse me, I didn't understand, if you send it by ordinary post, it could be suitable for all countries, isn't it? I am from in Russian Federation, is it O.K.? :iconathenaplz:

Okay, it looks like it should be okay. Here is the link and you can double check for yourself if you like, in case I missed anything. It's a page about custom restrictions for Russia ( I'm assuming this means the Federation, as it was the only version listed ).
