Portraits: WOMEN of SCI FI

This challenge closed almost 3 years ago.

The Challenge

~ The Good, the Bad, the Beautiful (or not); your favorite Women from the World of Sci Fi! ~

There is a challenge open for The Bad Guys and another for the Good Guys (Heroes). THIS ONE’S ONLY FOR THE WOMEN! And/or, the Girls. No male characters. They have a challenge of their own right here (or see our challenge page)!

As with the others in this Trilogy, this challenge is for Tribute Art: whether Starfleet Officer or Time Lord’s companion, the character you feature should be a woman most of us would recognize from series, books or movies we all know and love.

They can be heroines ~ they can be villains. (Who would dare exclude Borg Queen?!) Either way we want to see her features clearly. Entries should be Portraits. You can focus on her face or depict her from the torso up, or even show full-figures; but be sure to give her center-stage (no other figures in the image). No cartoons, no silhouettes, no “women at a distance.”

Any media accepted (drawings, paintings, Photoshop creations) but be sure your work is ART, not photography, and shows a high degree of originality. No clips or photos scanned directly from copyrighted sources, like TV or the internet! They will be disqualified.

We invite both Art (prints and posters) and Clothing Designs (shirts) but no i-phone covers, please! They’re too small to feature! If you have a work you’ve posted as an i-phone cover, re-post it as an Image (under Prints and Cards) and it will qualify!

The movie or show in question need not be new, or current. Just be sure your source is SCIENCE FICTION. Comic heroes such as Wonder Woman aren’t included in the mix, nor are NON-science fiction shows like Game of Thrones.

Older work is good ~ new is better yet.

All the usual rules apply, so if in doubt be sure to check our group home page for guidelines and requirements!

Judging / Voting Criteria

Pick your faves! We encourage you to vote more 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. Let the entries win on merit, not popularity!

If you enter (or even if you don’t!) PLEASE VOTE! Reminders will be sent if possible.

Rewards & Prizes

In addition to Acclaim and the warm fuzzy feeling when you win, First Place Winner gets a Winner’s Banner, spotlight-feature on our Group Home Page and a Special Presentation in our Forum. (Exposure, exposure, exposure!) You will also be inducted to our Hall of Fame (Featured Artists)!

Should we have a tie both winners will “collect!”

The runners up (Top 10) also get a Banner and a mention in the Forum

Additional Information

Please be sure your entry is accepted in the group by voting time!

And please make a mention of your reference, especially if it’s off the beaten track! Nearly everybody recognizes Trek or Dr. Who but the challenge isn’t limited to those. For less familiar movies, shows or books, it’s important that you list your source.

Any entries deemed unsuitable or not in keeping with the challenge theme or group requirements, may (and will) be removed at discretion of the hosts.

Hope you’ll have some fun with this! We’re looking forward to your entries!
