Members, join in the fun and whip up some dust, painting for our monthly challenge Get Dusty! Not a member yet? It is very easy to join.
The prize will vary.
Open to all members of the Pastel Guild who are 18 years old or more.
Themes are decided on by the Get Dusty Team. (Suggestions for themes very welcome.)
You may submit up to two paintings for each Month's competition. (For the time being. This may change, so check this point.)
All submitted artwork must be by your own hand only, no work completed under instruction allowed. Peer critique which leads to changes is regarded as 'instruction'. No copies of other artwork, and if you use a reference, you must have the right to use it. (You do not want a copyright suit. Submitting to Get Dusty is publishing.)
The submitted paintings shall have a connection to the theme of the month. (A painting of a cat will not do if the theme is horses. The Horsehead Nebula? Possibly. The Dusty Team makes the decisions, and won't debate.)
You must state the size of your entry (that is the actual size of the painting) in the "description" box when uploading. If no size is stated your entry will be automatically disqualified. If you wish you may also include details of the type of paper and pastels used and a general description of the painting.
You must also state the source of any reference used for your entry in the "description" box. If your entry was done from life, imagination or your own reference photo, say so. If an external reference was used you should state it's source and, where appropriate, the name of the person to whom it belongs. If you do not add this information when entering, or later in the comments box, your entry will be disqualified.
Maximum size of picture is 800x800 pixels, 72 ppi resolution, max 300 kb. All entries should be as close as possible to 800pixels on the long side. Entries which are significantly smaller than the required size will be disqualified.
There shall be one winner, who shall have an interview published in the Pastel Scribbler newsletter. (Mother will be so proud! And it looks good on your CV.)
We'll select a winner, second place, and third place, plus up to 3 Honorary Mentions , who will get their paintings displayed in the Get Dusty Gallery. (Looks good on the CV too!)
Pastel paintings only. Mixed Media paintings must have 80% pastel. (A no-brainer, really.)
All paintings must be submitted online no later than the stated date of deadline of the month. (It is actually allowed to be in good time...)
If you have any questions concerning your interpretation of the theme, do ask the Get Dusty Team before committing to paper, in the Forum section Competitions. (Better safe than sorry.)
All paintings will be published in the Get Dusty section of the website. (Yours will look especially good.)
Winner is elected by a jury appointed by the Board. The jury's decision is not debatable. (No use whining and complaining, in other words. Life really is unfair.)
