"Love puts the fun in together, the sad in apart, and the joy in a heart."
St. Valentines Day is amongst us all, yet love spreads on a daily basis...in any shape, condition, or challenge. This week in Project Educate, I welcome you --
The "I : heart :" Contest!!!!
What is this contest about?
In dedication to those who are coming across bigotry, conflict, and utter misfortune in their lives early this brand new year, this contest is primarily for those that could use a bit more affection and support in their lives. #ProjectEducate this week is not only to teach individuals something new, but to bring something new and cherishable in a person's life.
Sweet! So how do we go about making an entry?
I'm glad you asked! For your creative minds this month, we challenge you to make something exceedingly unique with a template already provided for you:
Your design can be as simple or complex as you want it to be - just make sure your entry is considerate for our following -
"People seem to think that only the center of the heart shaped O can be used to place what you love in but I originally intended for the entire space to be open for use. And certainly any medium could be used."
Your entry must be in dedication of someone you on deviantART - it could be your best friend, cousin, or even a random deviant whose style you respect!
Only one entry is allowed in this contest, however you're welcome to provide a chain of "I s" via linking them through your submission! It never hurts to express your love to more than one being.
Submissions are due by February 19th!! The time is short, but nonetheless its an excellent chance to show that special someone you really care this Valentine's Week!
While we are primarily focusing on the deviantART-related & Fan Art galleries, any form of art is accepted like PurpelBlur has explained - Sculpture, Photography, Poetry/Prose, and the most common of media: Traditional & Digital!
Now, what kind of contest would we be if we didn't supply the contestants themselves with amazing rewards?
