Attention fan artists! We here at TNWU know that there are many very talented artists involved with all the various CW show fandoms. We’ve decided that we would like to showcase some of that art on our site as a tribute to both your talent and the quality of the CW’s programming.
Is your interest piqued? Would you like to be considered for the Best in Show prize of an exclusive interview with one of the TNWU staffers? Maybe you’d just like to have a larger audience for your art. Whatever your motivation, we want to see the very best you can do!
Here are the details:
- Submit an original piece of artwork representing one of the current CW shows (for this first contest we are restricting entries to current shows only). Your entry must be received by midnight (Eastern time) on November 13, 2015.
- The piece submitted for the contest should be unpublished. Twitter/Instagram postings do not count as publishing. By submitting your piece to us for evaluation you agree to allow us to post your piece on TalkNerdyWithUs.com in connection with this event.
- The subject/topic of your piece is up to you, but should (for this contest) represent a canon storyline. In terms of ships, if a ship is truly canon, it’s acceptable. Wincest, Destiel, or other fan fic driven non-canon ships are not acceptable and will be disqualified.
- Entries must be suitable for all audiences. Please keep these PG13 for this particular challenge.
- Your piece may contain any of the characters associated with a series, even those dead and dearly departed.
- Once complete, submit your piece for evaluation to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your email should contain the name of the CW show and the characters depicted as well as your own name and an email where we can reach you.
- You may submit as many entries as you wish and you will retain ownership of the art. Your entry to this show/contest gives us permission to post these pieces on our site. Once the contest is finished and the winners announced. The winning pieces will be posted for at least an additional week. We will then forfeit the right to post your creation and it will be removed from the website.
- There will be a first, second and third place awarded for each CW show that receives entries. We will post these winners on our site with your name (unless you prefer to remain anonymous) and an image of your artwork. First place winners will see their artwork adorn our postings for that week’s show related articles.
- One Best in Show piece will be chosen from the first place winners. The artist who created this piece will be offered the chance to be interviewed for the site by one of the staff writers. The interview article can include other examples of the artist’s work.
- Judging for the first, second and third place winners will be done by the TNWU staffers and all decisions are final. We will then post all the first place works on the site and allow our readers to choose our Best in Show entry.
- There is no monetary value associated with any of the awards.
Best of luck to you all – may the odds be ever in your favor!
