The Challenge

~ Predicting the future of our planet ~

For this challenge, let’s see your visions of the future! Skip ahead a hundred years: what’s become of humankind, and Earth?

Will Earth be a classic vision of the future, such as science fiction sometimes says where technology has triumphed and saved the day? Or will global changes and/or various catastrophes render Earth a post-apocalyptic ruin, where only few survive?

Whether you’re an optimist or whether you believe the future’s very much in question, here’s your opportunity to show us what you think! Or what you hope ~ ~ or what you fear.

Art Only, please (no shirts, no i-pod designs).

Also, no generic “space art” ~ even if you think that’s where people be living in a hundred years. This challenge focuses on Earth: on what is going on “at home.” If your prediction is that there will BE no Earth by then and everybody will be living on the moon or Mars ~ ~ ! Well then, show us that. but tell us in your title and/or text what’s happened, so we know. There are, after all, countless possibilities… the choice is yours!

All media accepted (paintings, drawings, Bryce, Photoshop, etc)..

NO FAN ART, for this one! All work/concepts must be original.

(All entries must adhere to group requirements; if in doubt, please check our group home page.)

Judging / Voting Criteria

If you enter, PLEASE VOTE!!!!

Vote for as many as you like. Base your votes on content, artistic excellence, creativity and innovation as well as how well you think they fit the challenge theme.

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. So play fair! Let the artwork win on merit, not on popularity.

VOTES are IMPORTANT! We have not received a lot of votes in recent challenges. Reminders will be sent if possible, but if you enter PLEASE PARTICIPATE!

Rewards & Prizes

The winner will receive a $20 voucher from the Bubble, as well as a banner and be show-cased on our Group Home Page (providing the image has at least 5 votes)! If your entry is horizontal, it will be our Avatar. If your entry is vertical, we will use it for a banner (verticals don’t work for avatars).

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 at least 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 to qualify. Again, be sure your work adheres to the focus of the challenge and the rules of the group. All entries deemed otherwise WILL be removed at the discretion of the hosts.

We’re looking forward to some super innovative art!

[Note: Hosts, as members too, may enter challenges. However, if the host who originates the challenge happens to win a $20 voucher, he or she will donate the voucher to the group either in an upcoming challenge, or award.]
