    1. Send your card as a jpg to contest.atcsforall@gmail.com

    2. Include your AFA username with your entry. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    3. Images should be at least 150 dpi. Should measure 2.5 x 3.5 inches, portrait or landscape. MAKE SURE YOUR CARD IS THE RIGHT SIZE!

    4. NO watermarks or signatures on the front of the image as we are trying to keep all entries anonymous to better the contest experience. All members are welcome to participate. (*No participant can win more than one prize per year - the year will run from Jan 1 thru Dec 31. You are still welcome to play but once you win, your card is ineligible for voting till the next year.)

    5. Do NOT post your entries in the gallery, Facebook, or on the web until after the contest ends (those posting prior to the end date will be disqualified from competition.) Once we have announced the winner of the contest feel free to upload it and claim your card!

DO NOT RESEND YOUR ENTRY EMAIL if you don't hear from me right away. If I need you to resend, I will let you know.

    8. To avoid possible disqualification for vote solicitation it is highly recommended that entrants refrain from posting about the contest while voting is running. And if you admire someone's work and think you recognize it, wait until voting ends to post public compliments!

    9. A FREE TIP--The better your scan or photo of your artwork is the better it will look in the contest! Take the time to make sure it is lined up square, cropped, bright enough, and in focus.

    Please send all questions about status of your card as a pm - All messages to the thread referring to a specific card will be deleted to keep within the rules of the contest to keep ALL cards anonymous.

    GOOD LUCK!

    Does it have to be an actual "peacock" or can it be like a peacock dress or even a lion that has peacock colors and feathers?

    For this contest, the challenge is to be creative with mixed media inside the box. That can be pretty creative too.

    Or maybe you mean--no, both are paints?
    Like maybe--no to using oil pastels and pen as they are both drawing media?

    Hi folks

    This is the second of two "mixed media only" contests we are trying out this year, specifically to get more collage and mixed media artists involved in the contest. So far, not many entries. If you would like to see mixed media contests next year, this is the contest to enter
