Wild, Wacky, Whimsical! ($20 voucher)

This challenge closed almost 5 years ago.

The Challenge

~ Whimsy: an odd or fanciful or capricious idea. Playful. Silly. Pixie-ish.

“There’s no use trying,” Alice said. “One can’t believe impossible things.”

“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast!” ~ Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass

Show us your wackiest, most whimsical creations!

All entries must be BLENDS and fit the rules and focus of the group. Nothing realistic here – - nothing dark, no single photos overlaid with texture. Artwork should be fanciful and light of heart: it must display a Sense of the Capricious and Impossible.

At least two elements must be combined to create imaginary scenes. No abstracts please, and nothing from the Every Day!

All styles, all media are welcome, provided you comply with our requirements.

~ Just art! No shirt designs or i-phone covers, please! ~

Judging / Voting Criteria

Vote for more than one. Base your choice on artistic merit, creativity and whimsy.

As always, we will not tolerate Padding of the Ballot Box! Soliciting votes, either via Facebook or by Bubblemail, will disqualify your entry and result in your expulsion from the group! It may sound harsh, but it’s FRAUD; so let the artwork win on merit, not on popularity.

Rewards & Prizes

Winner gets a winner’s banner, special mention in our Forum and our Group Home Page, plus all due bragging rights… in addition to a $20 voucher from the Bubble if the entry gets at least 5 votes!

He or she will also be among our Featured Artists in the group.

Ties are recognized so if we have more than one, all winners win!

If we have more than 30 entries we will also recognize the Top 10. Less than that, and we will recognize the Top 5 (who also get a banner and a mention in our Forum).

Additional Information

For this challenge, your IMAGINATION the key! Again, nothing Real… nothing Dark. Whimsy Only! And however fanciful, your work must be a blend of several images or elements.

In keeping with our basic rules, no gore ~ no porn ~ no brutality! Remember the 2 B’s… Blended and Beautiful.

Any entries deemed offensive or otherwise unsuitable will be removed at the discretion of the hosts, as will entries which are not on-theme.

Please be sure your work has been accepted in the group by voting time.

We’re looking forward to some cool flights of fancy, and we hope you’ll have a lot of fun with this!
