Drawing and Coloring CONTEST - Winner Announcement

in #art6 years ago (edited)


Results are in for the Drawing and Coloring Contest held throughout this past week.

Some excellent entries have been submitted with a great variety of topics - humorous ones, some collaboration pieces, steem-related posts, some raising awareness to the issues in our society, and quite a few related to the Venezuelan crisis taking place as you read. All are worth a visit and your support. If you wish to see them, I have resteemed them on my blog.


Here's what I was looking for:

  • incorporate a motto/catchphrase/title to the drawing
  • you are free to take out or add any elements you wish (if you wish to change the coin to something else for example, something that has more meaning to you, then by all means, be my guest)
  • you must draw the rest of the body of the lady in the back (only the head appears)
  • provide a small description with your drawing (explain your title, give details of the process, explain the medium used and/or why you added/took away certain elements...)

The contestants were judged on the criteria of ARTISTIC MERIT (composition, color, overall success of the piece integrating aesthetics with concept), POST QUALITY (formatting, detailed explanation, relevance of the message conveyed, title, effort) and INNOVATION in their approach to the drawing.


1rst place: @itachi24j - 5 SBD


2nd place: @gailbelga -3 SBD


3rd place: @donnadavisart - 2 SBD


And since we loved all your entries but unfortunately couldn't reward all of you, we decided to reward 2 extra contestants as Honorable Mentions:

It's a tie between @orangina and @horty, who have both won 1SBD!

Congratulations to all winners! You'll be receiving your rewards shortly.

A very special THANK YOU to the judges: @natureofbeing, @immarojas, and @abh12345 who have provided much help and guidance with their observations, as well as their kind donations to the winners.

All SBD's made on the previous post + 5SBD from @abh12345 will be donated to A Walk Of Hope project by @steemph

target population in this tour will be of elementary kids, high school students, inmates, special education kids and out of school youth. There are also talks of reaching out to the teachers and do Music and Arts workshops if it can be arranged.

The others entries, overcoat of Venezuela, they illustrate all the hardships that we have to spend: those who STAY and those who plan to LEAVE :´)

"Los que se quedan, los que se van, algún día volverán..."

Let us know how we can help Venezuela, if there is anything at all we can do... Maybe if there are some charities being set up on Steemit we could look into that.
Cheers @itach24j and well done on winning the contest!

Hi @osm0sis,
have a look at #venezuelaobservatory and join the comment sections.
You could also write a #venezuelaobservatory article, or more then one, yourself and donate the generated steem to the project.

Congrats to you itachi24j! and all the other winners!

Thank you very much! I love having participated in this contest, I adore when they promote art, congratulations to all who participate

Oh yay, I won third place! Wonderful. I really entered to get a chance to draw into your grandfather's history, This was a fun one!

Well deserved Donna! We all loved your entry.

Cheers to all of you who entered, this was VERY hard to choose from since there were so many great ones!

@osm0sis, I loved this contest, it was so innovative and I appreciate how it connected your family history with present day blockchain tech through the timeless act of line and color and storytelling. I enjoyed the experience thoroughly.

You're right Ruth, choosing the winners really wasn't as easy as I thought it would be.
I also liked the direction the contestants took with their ideas. A great honour for my great-grandfather - an activist who fought for human rights and enjoyed pondering on the human condition.

Thank you @osm0sis! This contest was great and I am ecstatic to get an honorable mention.

You deserved it. Your entry made us all laugh :)

And thanks to the judges too! @natureofbeing, @immarojas, and @abh12345
