6: The Zen Open Art Contest.

Posted on Mar 9, 2011 by in No Magnets required

This is by far the most we’ve ever put into a contest, because the range of possible participants is wider than ever before. No magnets are required, but a haiku is. Excellently lavish prize odds.

Light art, digital work, photo manipulation, ink, oil, crayon, magnet related or not. You and your artistic friends are welcome to submit anything. All entries go to the public domain, and judging will be public.

Last day for entry is March 31st. Judging will be public.

Restrictions? There are no artistic restrictions. This is a celebration of deviant creativity. Any digital or traditional: Vector art, paintings, illustrations, drawings, etc., are ok. Your piece will need a short title, and an alluring accompanying haiku.Imagination needs no excuse, but passion may need a catalyst. Over $600 in cash incentive for the top few, and over $1500 worth of magnets for the top many. The deadline is the last day of March, and all entries will be up for public voting soon after.By submitting your image, you agree to free your piece from all copyrights. Your image will be released into the wild open [source] domain. We’ll let you know where we are able to promote your art, but like a graffiti wall, anybody will have the right to modify and apply your contribution however they wish.

It seems the world has a surplus of surfaces, but a deficit of beautiful ones. We’ll try to proliferate all contributions wherever we can. Cards, stickers, site, and maybe even billboards if one day we are capable.

Each entry needs an link of the image, a title that is 3 words or less, and a supplementary haiku. Deadline is 3/31/11. $300 for first place, $200 for second, $100 for third. A gift packaged set of Zen Magnets for the top 50.
