Now that the holiday season is almost here, :iconphotoetry:, :icongetexposure:, and :iconwefeatureyou:, proudly presents “Happy Holidays – The Contest” . From Photography to Poetry to Digital and Traditional Art, there’s no better way to celebrate the holidays than by having a contest about it.

To join, simply come up with a new artwork that is about a holiday in your country. You can write a poem about your Independence Day or take a photo of your Thanksgiving dinner or draw an image of a Christmas tree. The possibilities are endless and it’s all up to you to interpret it.

The mechanics are simple.
1. Members can submit only 1 entry per medium  to one of the groups mentioned above.  To make it clearer, they can only enter 1 photo, 1 poem, 1 digital artwork, and 1 traditional drawing.
2. The artwork should be new (posted in dA from Oct 1 onwards).
3. The contest entry should have a link of one of the host's page and this news article in the Artist's Comments.

Below are the don’ts.
1. Do not submit multiple entries. Again, only ONE entry per medium per deviant.
2. Do not submit the same deviation to multiple groups.
3. Do not submit an artwork that is not yours.
4. Do not forget to add the links in your artist’s comments for us to know that the artwork is your contest entry.

To submit your artwork, simply drop by the galleries below.

coool. i just have a few questions about the submission process. which group do we submit to? and does that have any connection to "do not submit to other groups"? if not, can you explain that?
thanks :D
Reply
:iconrobkit:
robkit Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2010
Hi there. To answer your question, you can submit to any of the co-hosts as long as it's the correct folder. By "do not submit to other groups", it means that you can't submit your entry to one group and then submit the same one to the other. Example, you submitted a photo to #Photoetry, you are not allowed to submit the same photo or another photo to #GetExposure and #WeFeatureYou. I hope that cleared it up. :)
