I'm incredibly excited to announce this contest that is being hosted by Enchanting-Nature. I've been wanting to create a nature theme a little more challenging than "Nature Macro" or "Landscapes", and one that teaches us about the actual subjects of the natural world that are captured in photographs. With this in mind, I thought the theme "Your Favourite Endangered Species" would be quite fitting!
About the theme
For this contest I am looking for any kind of species, be it an animal, plant or fungus, that is threatened with extinction. Sadly, the list is long. For example, here
you can find the list of endangered animals. Some examples of artworks that I'm looking for:
Only members of Enchanting-Nature
can participate in this contest. If you aren't a member, please join the group!
Members can submit only one entry
Accepted mediums of art include digital, traditional and photography. Fantasy artworks are very welcome!
Your deviation must have been taken/made in 2014. This will be checked when voting on submissions.
In your deviation's artist's comments you must
mention that you are entering your deviation to this contest. Please provide a link to this journal entry and place the group's icon. A very important part of this contest is to address why you chose that specific endangered species and why it's your favourite. You must also explain why this species is endangered and what is being done to conserve it, which should take up at least a paragraph. Please add the scientific name of the species, and if you have anything else interesting to add feel free to do so! The whole point is to educate everyone about the problems and causes.
This will also be checked when voting on your entries.
Where to submit
The contest deadline is 22nd November 2014
For now I (dandelion-field
) will be the judge in this contest. If you'd like to be a judge as well, please contact me! But remember that you cannot participate.
I hope that by the end of the contest there will be enough points at ENBank
for big prizes for the 3 winners. For now, here's the prize list.
