:heart: Acts of Random Kindness Contest

Winner: Mommy-of-Ein

My Kindness Quilt by Mommy-of-Ein
Please see the prizes you will be receiving at the bottom of this journal.

Unfortunately, even with a month-long extension, most participants were unable to finish their quilts. With that issue, does anyone have any suggestions for how we should approach or run the next Kindness Quilt Contest?

:star: The Contest Specifics

Start date: November 1
End date: December 31
Quilts accepted: After October 15
Gallery: ARK Quilt 2012
Category: Community Projects / Projects & Clubs / The Kindness Quilt
Voting begins: January 1
Voting ends: January 15
Winners announced: by January 20
Subject matter: Family Memories or Winter Holidays
Resources: Quilt Pack and Quilt Square
Submission Requirements: Must be in the form of a quilt AND tell a story. Quilts accepted in sizes 3x3 and 4x4 (3x3 demo quilt - if you are adventurous enough to do a 5x5, we will accept those too). Quilts must be positive, no thought/talk bubbles, must not use anything against dA rules, must credit all resources properly and may not be a group collaboration. Any visual medium can be used to create the quilt squares (photography, digital, craft, traditional, manipulations, etc). Fanart IS accepted. Bases ARE NOT accepted unless you can link to the original base showing it is not against dA rules (many traced bases are - judges will be picky when it comes to use of resources). ONE submission per participant. Participants need not be a member of deviantHEART.

:bulletpurple: Judging Parameters
Judges will be judging on creativity, impact of the story, establishment of mood and artistic improvement of the chosen visual medium. While entries must display some artistic knowledge, artistic style and ability will not be pitted against other artists. Instead, for the purposes of artistic improvement, each participants art will be judged against the most recent art in their gallery that is the same type as their quilt. So if an artist uses photographs to create their quilt, judges will look at the most recently submitted photographs in their gallery to see if they tried to improve upon their technique for this contest.

Will this contest be extended or is it closed?

Hello. We tried offering an extension, but it appears as though no one but one person was able to get their quilt done. As of now, we have one winner [link] who will get the grand prize. No second place prize will be given as no one else could complete their entry even with an extension. When you do your next Winner's Package update, if you could please include [link] and I will get this journal updated with the winner's information :heart:

Great! :) Just note :iconanothercontestgroup: for the Winner's Package, and we will store the information. :)

We are waiting to find out. I am giving everyone who wants an extension until the 15th to note us. I will inform you of our decision on the 16th. Right now, after 2 days, we haven't gotten a note yet, so I am thinking it may end prematurely.

I was all excited till I saw it wasn't an actual quilt that needed to be made... might be an idea to be a little more specific in the specifics that this is a PHOTO collage in the general shape of a quilt and not a real live fabric quilt which is what "quilt" usually refers to ;)

Good luck with the contest - I hope you get loads of inspiring entries :D
