    Humm akia's dystopia theme seems really fun to do, the problem is fixing the amount of "dark" stuff we could put on it.

    About a video contest... It really depends on the theme, if done, a easy theme would be better, like stop-motions or videos with just a few takes.

    A typography-based sig/banner contest sound awesome.Creating font from scratch require a specific program and it's almost impossible to do for most of us.>.>

    Let see what Farfalla has to say about that.
    I was thinking it would suit for a poetry/short story contest.

    I don't see the amount of dark as something that problematic xD The softwares we use have enough features to allow us to work with that in different ways, and those features are well known^^ So I think it could be used either for a literature contest, as Akia said, or for a graphic one.

    Speaking of themes, can we also use a picture prompt for writing? Maybe get a random picture or even use the winning picture from a contest that a writer can use to write a story, poem, lyrics, etc. ^^

    *got inspired by a lesson in one of the classrooms*

    Re: Art Contest Theme and Misc Category Suggestion Thread

    I was thinking about themes for next art-contest and it was really hard to determine what new\interesting\catchy it could be. But my offers are
    - nationality
    - specific religions (shamanism, paganism, viccanian magic, religion of Atlantis and so on)
    - mecha (for example a theme, like `mecha for environmets- water, fire, air, blood lol`)
    - science (researches, journies, failures, troubles)

    Maybe some combo. Say, mecha+religion.

    I really like the idea of a combo, it would make room for some interesting entries and it would be a different challenge...

    I wonder if people would be open for a more personal theme... something like a self-portrait, or favorite character, or reinterpreting other artist's piece...

    these are also interesting, and there`s a space for fantasy!

    I suggest a... face contest. Like the ones some people made in the Show Me thread in the Fun Forum. Contestants try to make a particular face (happy, sad, grumpy, "not bad" face) and whoever made the best, funniest, etc, wins. xD

    Hehe, the idea is interesting. Hm I guess it'll fall under the category of photography, no? Or it can be drawings as well?

    Well I was thinking of it as making an actual face, and it wouldn't be so much a photography contest, because for a such type of thing, the photo quality and editing wouldn't play up. But if not a photography one, then I dunno how it'd be categorized. xD I just thought that that way a lot of people could have fun without having to do much and that people that don't draw and don't use Photoshop, aren't photographers, etc, could have an option to join, you know? And have fun!
