After a lot of bouncing ridiculous contest ideas around, TheSkaBoss and I have decided that we couldn't decide on just one. We have therefore taken our three favourite ideas and lumped them all together in one giant contest!

Idea 1 - Déja Vu:
It's happening again. Something happened over 40 years ago, and happened again today. How are they the same and how are they different? This can be a real or fictional event.

For example - Two pictures, old and new, side by side. A story that switches the point of view each paragraph. Etc etc

Idea 2 - Parallel Dimension:
Think back on your life. Find a minor decision you made (at LEAST two years ago) and undo it - choose something different. How many major life-changing decisions came about as a result of that one minor thing? What would you be like now had you chosen differently?

For example - A self portrait of the different you, quick explanation of the decision in artist comments. A story of everything that happened since then. A story that focuses on just the major decision. Etc etc

Idea 3 - Worst Day Ever:
Take your OC and be as mean as you possibly can to them. Give them a day where EVERYTHING goes wrong. Make them hate you. Then show us the results.
(We're not really sadists. Honest. We're just curious.)

For example - Literature that tells the story of the whole day. A picture showing the worst of all of the bad things to happen that day. A picture or story of the 'last straw'. Etc etc


Rules


:bulletred: Open to all media!
:bulletred: Prose - min. word limit of 1200, max. of 3000.
:bulletred: Poetry - min. line count of 16, max. of 60.
:bulletred: If it's mature content, we'll accept it but please add an appropriate warning.
:bulletred: Contest will run from today (24th May) until the 24th of June.
:bulletred: You may enter two pieces, but only one per category. Yes, this does mean you can win twice.

:bulletred: To enter, please send links in notes to both me and =Lina19 with the title of the category you used, and put a link to this contest in your artist comments.

If there's text in my "worst day ever" picture is it bad if the text is song lyrics even if I credit the songwriter/band/song/album in the artist comments?

That's reasonable to us. Just make sure to credit them, and we'll be just fine.

Okay sweet, onwards with the idea. Now all I need is a theatre, actors for the stage of the theatre, a giant person who can pick up the theatre and giant floating words in the sky... Or I could just draw those things :D

If you want to do a parallel dimension, does it have to be in the same 'world'? Like the same character or something in two completely different worlds? I have only vague ideas, so I'm sort of brainstorming at the moment ^,^

KCarey Featured By Owner May 27, 2010  Professional Artisan Crafter
No, parallel can be very different. It would all depend on how far back the... Diversion happened.

We picked 40 years to have it be more of a generational gap, so yes it needs to be 40 years at least.

Hmmm... It would make a PERFECT intro for my Oc into the dA (literature) universe... Granted the first one would be awesome too... Eh. I'll give both a shot, but I'm just kind of worried about the word limit... I may not be able to write enough to fill 1200 words... Hmmmm...

If I don't procrastinate too much, as I'm quite commonly caught doing *Cough*Haven't been on dA in AGES*cough*
I'll probably enter. Yays!

Are we supposed to combine litterature and visual art or are they separate? If they are separate, can we combine the two anyway? (like with text in a picture telling a story)
