What you need to know:

Like art itself, color makes the world worth living. Also, like art, without it, life seems bleak and uninspiring. Now more than ever we crave social interaction and the exchange of ideas, culture and the sharing of beautiful things. Paramount, among them, is art.


The theme of our first issue in this contest will be “color”. Color can be used to emphasize, to convey a feeling or emotion, it can be bright or even scary. Color can be used for a lot of things and so we want you to submit your best work utilizing color.


Let’s brighten up our online life (a place we are spending a lot of our time right now) with beautiful artwork for the world to enjoy.


All forms, mediums, and styles are welcome: Mixed media, acrylic painting, watercolor painting, oil painting, marker, colored pencil, aerosol, even Crayola crayons are all acceptable. I mean, who are we to stifle your creative flow? So long as color is the primary focus of your submitted work, you are free to submit to your heart's content.
