A group honoring those lush green carpets of moss, the delicate beauty of ferns, and the unusual forms of lichens and liverworts from everywhere around the globe. Algae, seaweeds, and fungi are also welcomed:>)

The Challenge

This challenge is to pick a new image for our group avatar for the month of February. Enter any image you really like as long as it is in the group. It should also look good in thumbnail size because that is what we see:>).

I like the idea of giving our monthly voucher to the winner of our avatar. The avatar image represents the group – it’s our “face” so to speak. In order to deserve a $20.00 voucher, we should have more than 10 entries. Please enter – you never know. You could win as easily as someone else:>) Remember, too, that our group is now asking for lichens and liverworts, algae and seaweed, as well as ferns and mosses.

Our avatar challenges always have phenomenal images to choose from, and I expect this challenge to be as good or better than those that went before:>).

Red Bubble now wants first place ties in a voucher challenge to have a run off challenge. In case of a tie, we will launch a run off.

Judging / Voting Criteria

Vote for your favorite(s) – the one you’d love to see on your page whenever we communicate.

The artist must be in the group to win the voucher, and the image must be accepted into the group. I will be checking entries and removing those not in the group.

Please – no vote solicitation

Rewards & Prizes


Your winning image will be posted to the home page, appear as our group avatar through the month of December, and you’ll become a featured artist. Oh – you will also receive a banner:>)

Runners up in the top 10 will also receive a banner.

An announcement of our winners is sent to all members:>)

Additional Information

Have fun! Please make an effort to enter and, when the time comes, to vote.

Thank you all for your participation and for sharing your terrific images.
