So many of you know I make handmade grimoires. I use images for the front and back liner pages. Some are old images of witches, some are nature, etc.

So here is the competition:

Submit atleast two different (up to 4 different images). They can be your personal photographs, drawings, paintings etc.

I will be using the images in at least one of my books maybe more. They will be sold through my store in Tennessee.

The winner will receive a handmade book from me!

So submit the images to Ian_allan83@hotmail.com

Let me see what inspires you! If it's steampubk images, nature, dreams or visions, hell if it's a shelf in an antique store that you like and feel inspired by. Send me your art.
I am open to a lot of different images.

But they MUST be your original work!

The contest will be open till feburary 2nd!
That gives you 3 weeks to create and find awesome witchy inspiring art!
I will announce the winner feburary 4th!

GOOD LUCK!

'Twas a photo competition, 'Natural Magic' was the subject I believe, or something along those lines at least.

I'd love to take part in this, perhaps my Inspiration will return by the next full moon... wouldn't put money on that though :rolleyes_witch:

Oh ok I remember that competition. I didn't participate in it. But I remember some awesome pictures.

The images can be from the last you don't have to do something brand new. If you have some older pictures or paintings that you like you can submit those as well.

I hope inspiration hits you! I'd love to see what you find inspiring!

Can they be personal pictures of yourself or other people if they have that 'feel' to it, or do they have to be of objects or landscapes. Im thinking of photos here by the way :) thanks.
Here to discuss, debate, listen and learn.

They can be personal photographs. But keep in mind the winning pictures will be used in at least one other book besides the one I send to the winner. So of you aren't comfortable with strangers having a picture of you or a close member of your inner circle you may not want to submit them.

But to answer your question yes they can be a personal photograph.

I am looking for art as well

I am so sorry Oceana... Spinneyhex was supposed to send you your prize, did you PM her your address?
She is taking a bit of a sabbatical from the site at the moment so if you send me your address by PM I will send you your prize.

Also I need each entry to the competition should be accompanied by a release allowing me to publicly show and sell the photo/art and stating that I now have complete and soul rights to the work.

for those that have sent submissions already, I would be happy to receive a release from you.
Or if you would rather I can delete your submission.

P.S. I'm not trying to be a dick about this, but I do need to protect myself, my work, and my finances.

Hope you all are having a good time creating works of art!

The pictures can be in portrait or landscape. Either works. I will have to size them accordingly either way.

I'm going to be working on some sketches over the next couple of days and see what I can come up with and send my best to you. Your work is fantastic.
