Combining or fusing images and elements creatively with beautiful results

The Magic of Music ($20 voucher)

The Challenge

All Things Musical!

Whether hard rock, soft rock, blues, retro, folk or classical, all entries for the challenge must “sing” to us of music!

The rules for this are simple: show an instrument or someone playing an instrument – maybe several people playing several instruments. People are not necessary – - choose the presentation of your liking, just so something musical is in the mix. Singers, dancers also fine provided there’s an instrument or instruments in view. Still lifes are invited too but again, they must be blends not just single photographs.

A BLEND involves more than one than one element or image; so no straight photographs with Orton, HDR or any other filter over-laid. Filters and effects are fine, provided you’re applying them to blends.

(Note: as always at Beautiful Blends, texture is a separate element IF it’s crucial to the over-all design and alters the look of the image in an artistic and creative way! See our guidelines and our Features for more.)

Let’s see your best work portraying music!

Please be sure your art complies with all the group requirements.

Judging / Voting Criteria

Choose your faves! Base your votes on creativity, artistic merit and how well the image fits the challenge theme. We encourage you to vote for more than one.

As always, No Soliciting of Votes. Any member caught padding the ballot box either via Bubblemail, Facebook or any other venue will have their work removed and also be deleted from the group. It may sound harsh but soliciting for votes is FRAUD, especially when monetary prizes are involved.

VOTES are IMPORTANT! If you enter, please participate!

Rewards & Prizes

Provided the winning image has at least 5 votes, the winner will receive a $20 voucher from the Bubble, as well as a banner and be show-cased on our Group Home Page.

In the event of a tie for 1st Place, all winners will be honored in accord with Bubble policy.

Runners up also get a banner and a mention, if the entries get at least 3 votes. (If we have more than 20 entries this will be the Top 10. If less, we will recognize the Top 5.)

Additional Information

Work must be accepted in the group by voting time to qualify!

Be sure your work adheres to the focus of the challenge and the rules and requirements at Beautiful Blends. In fairness to the other members, all entries deemed otherwise will be removed at discretion of the hosts.

Remember our focus here… the 2 B’s (Blended and Beautiful!)

We’re looking forward to some stunning artwork and we hope you’ll have some fun with this!
