The DeeZ 5Cs Award Banner is given to works that meet ALL of the following 5Cs:
1. Composition – Images that have a great initial impact/impression, have a focal point/subject or main point of interest where the eye goes first and can flow easily throughout the work. For example, use of the rule of thirds has been applied. When viewing the image you can envision it hanging on a wall, in a gallery, art show or exhibit.
2. Creativity – The work clearly exhibits a degree of imagination, artistry and/or skill required to produce it. It generally will evoke some type of emotional response from a viewer, such as: awe, inspiration, respect, interest, visual appeal and even envy or desire to be able to create a work like it!
3. Contrast/Color – Regardless of the medium the images submitted should have excellent color saturation and contrast that enhances the composition. Images should not be too dark or too light, white balance should not be blown out.
4. Clarity – The main point of interest in the composition must be in focus. If the composition has a horizon in it, it should be level. The images should not have excessive noise/pixilation, be out of focus or distorted.
5. Commercial Appeal/Applicability – As the purpose of the RB site is to promote and sell artworks/products, all images that receive this award MUST have commercial appeal to a wide audience of buyers. This group is focused on promoting artistic images, we want works that appeal to buyers of fine art for exhibition, galleries and/or individual collectors as well as ones that appeal and are suitable for mass produced products such as ads, calendars and greeting cards.
Specifically, works that receive this award are those that people would generally find appealing and be willing and interested in buying/paying money for. Works that receive this award are those where the artist has clearly given consideration to who their target audience is and if their work would appeal to a wide public audience/buyer.
