Would photography or digital artwork count?

Photography does not count. Digital art might. What do the other artists participating think?

I was thinking pacific time. But the challenge hasn’t started, so if anyone has any objections to that we can change it.

I don’t think photos could count as there is already a photo contest, however digital art IMO should count

Alright. I’ll do my best to stick with ms paint and photoshop. I won’t do anything that couldn’t be drawn, I think that’d be unfair.

Maybe Mike could make a thread similar to the photo contest thread so any photo will be put up top and it could be reset every week

They where supposed to be posted here, but it would be neat if Mike could make a thread set up like the photo contest.

I think photographic elements should be allowed. As long as it isn’t “just a photo.”

I don’t know what ”photographic elements“ means really. Could you expand on this?

Photomanipulation perhaps? Or graphic design of some sort?

This is going to sound like I’m being a jerk but I can’t figure out how to copy a link to a google search result page, so forgive me...do a google search for “mixed media with photography” and you can see examples of what I’m referring to.

As a photographer I would love the opportunity to put photos in would love to see things like this

Could you not have a some sort of rules that it has to be something out of the ordinary not just a photo of your aquarium?

perhaps art and photography can be separate if there’s interest?
But I’ve attended and participated in shows before, and they allow photography and different medias of art mix into one pot, all competing against each other.
I wouldn’t see the harm of having photography as a submission option :)

I personally consider photography an art. So I say yes. It doesn’t make much sense to say any art such as sculpture, drawing, painting, etc, but then say “no photography.” If someone submits a simple camera phone snap shot I wouldn’t think they’d get too many likes, so... is for fun and meant to challenge ourselves. I doubt anyone would get banned for submitting a photo. :)
