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.
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*
I'll be hella busy until May 10 =\
Oh well... =\
Some themes suggestion if still needed.
- Darkest before the dawn
- Video games
- Ombre (fashion trend,not the card games)
- Fairy Tales retelling
You always have some great themes to sugest, Akia xD Thank you!^^ I'll add those.
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
- 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.
Those are great, I'm gonna add them to the first page! I personally like the nationality one a lot xD
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...
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
