The Challenge

FINALLY, after a difficult year, I’m ready to launch a new challenge to vote for a new GROUP AVATAR for Impressionism Cafe :)

This Challenge is for the DECEMBER AVATAR. You can post Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, any other December Holiday, images of snow, or for the Southern Hemisphere that which makes you think of DECEMBER. The sky is the limit! This challenge is open to YOUR interpretation, as long as your entry fits the group rules :)



Entry rules and submission guidelines:

Please, remember to add to our Group your beautiful work!

Please remember, Impressionism Cafe DOES NOT accept photomanipulations or composites! There are lots of wonderful groups for those types of work!

Only hand-created hand-painted paintings and drawings will be permitted in this competition. Digitals must be created by hand, NOT PHOTOMANIPULATION.

Please, no work with graphics or writing on it, such as posters, illustrations, cartoons and comic strips, greeting card designs, etc.

Any entry not meeting this Challenge Introduction Rules & Guidelines will be removed without notice.

We are looking forward to seeing your beautiful paintings or drawings and individual interpretation of the theme of the challenge.
