Great. If you all have any more suggestions, I will keep this thread up through the weekend. Then I will consult with admin/board on some of the contest suggestions and compile a list of themes for voting!

Thanks everyone for the help

A Few Suggestions

I like period pieces (Victorian seems to be the most common due to the popularity of steampunk, but other historical periods are lots of fun too).

Sea creatures, especially crustaceans.

Mix and match themes like "fill in blank animal" + steampunk/fairy etc.

Art Nouveau.

Florals.

Since I can't draw or paint (I've tried & it wasn't pretty!) I do collage mainly.

What I'd like to see:

Collage
Black & white
Black & white + 1
Red & white
Your favorite color as the main theme
Circles
Squares
Postage stamps
Book background
Sweets
Tea theme
Seasonal things
Steampunk
Rubber stamps
Zentangle
Textile
Something about your state
Butterflies
Your favorite thing
Something about your favorite place
Maps

OKAY!

Here's what happens next. I am going to chat with Admin about some of the ideas for changing the contest.

Right off I can tell you we won't be changing the sizes...this is the Monthly "ATC" contest. If members want a mail art contest, I think that needs to be brought up with the Board. Don't get me wrong, I love mail art, but the logistics of running a contest with multiple sizes or multiple contests with differing frameworks is a bit daunting!

If you members that want a mail art contest want to put together a proposal and send it to the Board I think that would be the best thing to do.

NEXT! What a FANTASTIC LIST OF IDEAS!!! You swap hosts could mine this thread for swap ideas for the next decade

What I'm going to do is first look for those themes that came up a lot (like black & white). Those would have a global interest and will go on the voting list. Then I will look for themes that can be done in any media ...because we want entries in any media for every contest! DonnaCR and others had some good points about themes that would be problematic if you don't draw and paint and I will keep that in mind.

I also tend to not include themes on our voting list that require your Dedicated Contest Monitor to have to do a lot of explaining and interpreting so entrants understand the theme. Less need to explain means less chance for people to send in off theme entries or for me to have to reject someone's work.

My ultimate goal is to have themes that most folks can do to encourage as many people as possible to enter.

SO I am taking your wonderful ream of suggestions and am going to spend a day or so winnowing. And then we can vote for our favorites!

Thank you to everyone for your GREAT IDEAS
