1. Why did you choose to make a "final entry only" contest instead of a work in progress area?
2. Is that possible for people who wish to share their work and are looking for advices to create a work in progress thread?
3. Finally, I'm really surprised that Yacek Yerka is not part of the judges, but will him have a word to say on winners?

So this is not question about creation, but rather for my curiosity (hope it's ok...)
By the way, big thank to you for organize a so original contest!


1 - We have a work in progress challenge - the NVArt challenges are designed to appeal to a different set of people than the CGChallenges.

2 - Yes, you can use the WIP section of the site - however you'll need to host the images yourself.

No.

Only the specified resolution may be uploaded, if you wish to use a portrait aspect, you'll need to use black-bars. The size was chosen as it's the resolution of 30" monitors.

1 - How you made an image is not part of the requirements, although if we doubt the process is digital we may ask you.

2 - If people don't match the look and feel we're after, then they're not going to do as well.

3 - We don't like to discriminate - so long as the image is digitally created, it's eligible.

4 - as many as you like we'd prefer you put a lot of effort into one image, than a small amount into several images.

5 - yes

6 - yes

We do not want recreations of Jacek's work, what we're looking for is work that has similar colors and shapes.

I just have a question before going on my composition...hard to tell...in fact I'm asking myself, where is the line between reproduction and personal work?

I mean, there is recurrent themes, forms (the waves, the locomotive, the shell, some houses styles, some building styles), that are inherent of yacek style, so have we to keep the themes in our work? And if not, should we have this theme in our work? (without reproduce his painting of course)

Sorry if my question looks evident for someone, but I prefere understand the contest at 100% before going on

moose write We do not want recreations of Jacek's work, what we're looking for is work that has similar colors and shapes.

but in the inspiration theme in the web page says surrealism , so if we do the shapes and colors and dont have any surrealism? i think that will be wrong? dont it?

If a piece looks the same as something already painted it's a reproduction.

If the judges don't think it's surrealist enough, you won't win. We don't try to make a public spectacle out of artists we just won't give you prizes
