Traditional artwork has won the voting, and our Pencils & Paints contest is now open!
This contest is SOLELY for traditional means. Digital work is not accepted into this one, sorry!
As always, work already submitted to the group cannot be used in the contest, as there are thousands of works, and we cannot look for them to move them into the contest folder. If you do want to submit something to the contest that is already in the group, you can remove it from the group, and then resubmit it to the contest folder.
The contest will be open until March 15th, and the countdown will be placed on the group's main page.
You can only submit ONE ENTRY, and if MUST be submitted to the Pencils & Paints Contest folder.
The winner of the contest will receive 250 points. Thank you everyone!
The theme is up to you, it just needs to follow traditional works;
-Pencils of all kinds are fine.
-Inks of all kinds are fine.
-Paints of all kinds are fine.
No photography, digital works or literature will be allowed into this contest.

If you remove your entry, you will still have to wait to resubmit another one. That is one of the rules.

I would like to do this I would like to enter my moon flower. but I don't know how to do it?
You would enter your work the same way you submit your other works to the group. Just make sure to put it into the correct folder. In case you do not remember the name of the appropriate folder, it is noted in this journal.
Go to the deviation you want to submit, then look to the right and click the button that says "add to a group". Then type in DeviantArtWorldWide and select the folder "pencils and paints contest". Click submit and you're all done!
I'd love to enter, where would I submit specifically to put an entry in?
Please read the journal carefully, to get the name of the specific folder to submit the work.
Nevermind, apologies for missing the information in the journal.
Nevermind, found out someone else asked the same question earlier
