Each month on the 20th, a contest begins for artists from all over the world. This contest is called Nibblefest Art Contest. The rules are pretty simple, It can be any medium and any size. It has to end on the 27th and cannot be started before the 20th. It can be entered as a 7, 5, 3 or 1 day auction, depending upon when you list it. It just has to end on the 27th. You have to start the auction at 99 cents. Yes, this can be a little worrisome, especially if you have spent many hours on the piece, but all rules must be followed in order to be qualified for the contest. The contest is scored by the number of bids (1st, 2nd & 3rd places) and another winner is the one who’s listing sells for the most money. The prize is a digital image award that can be used on your listings, blog, and other social media.
These contests are fun and have a different theme each month. I like the themes that I wouldn’t typically do because that makes for some completely madness! This month is something I find comfortable, though, and is “Flowers”. Without further delay, let me show you what I created for it:
Among Cherry Blossoms
How much fun I had creating him! I wanted to have the flowers be a part of the tree so I decided to go with cherry blossoms. I also plan to create this into a note card for my etsy shop if I can figure out a cost effective way (that looks nice) to print them. Hope to see you at the auction for this contest – even if you don’t like my entry, I’m CERTAIN you’ll find something you love. Just click here to go to my ebay listing and then click on the banner within the listing to see all the entries. There are some extremely talented artists who have entries and I’m honored to be among them.
