Title: Art Competition
Post by: Richard on August 26, 2015, 06:55:34 AM
PC - any activity marked PC means that it takes place Pre-Convention
OE - any activity marked OE is an Optional Extra and involves the purchase of a ticket add-on
FE - any activity marked FE means Free Entry and is included in your main convention ticket

Art Competition - FE
We held an art competition at the very first Gatecon, so it's high time we brought it back! Ticket holders are invited to create a piece of art in any medium that reflects Stargate, the 1960's Vangroovy theme or the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society - or all three!

Just bumping this thread to see if anyone is interested in having an art competition at the event?

Please add your name to this thread if you are, and if we get enough interest we will take it further.

I had to scratch my original idea due to the number of changes with the guest list.  I'm trying to come up with something else.

I'd be all over this IF I had the faintest smidgen of artistic talent. Which I don't. But I look forward to seeing all the entries.  :D

What would you consider the minimum number of entries to make this contest a go?

I think we should be good if everyone who just posted enters an item/items. More than that even better.

I would like to try to do this.  Not sure if I'll have time to create an entry.  But I will try!

Can I assume that the magazine cover competition is officially dead?  If so, can I enter a 2nd entry into the art competition?  I already have an entry, but would like to get what I was planning for the cover competition printed into a poster and enter it.

What address do we send pictures of our entry and is the deadline still July 31st or is it earlier?   I'll be taking my project to the printer tomorrow to get it printed into a poster; not sure how much time they will need for printing.
Title: Re: Art Competition
Post by: Richard on June 26, 2016, 04:20:44 PM
Yes still 31st July.

Please send it to gatecon.events@gmail.com. If you can put Art Comp in the subject line that will be helpful, thanks.

Could you also let me have the dimensions of the final piece so we can plan for exhibition space...same with any other entries. We will need to know sizes ahead of the event. Thanks

Good to see another entry. You will need to bring it as you wish to have it displayed (framed, on a stand etc)- we can only provide the table/display area. Many thanks

Had to scratch first project and I'm hoping to get the new one done on time.  Two eye surgeries in a week is kind of hampering the progress.  Arrrrgggghhhhh!!!!!

Have something in the final stage.  Not as good as I hoped so we'll see when it gets done.

Not long to go now so time to mention if you are bringing something for the art show please hand it in to the people manning the Gatecon merchandise table alongside the registration table on Thurdsay.

Artwork will be on display in the second dealer room and a winner chosen so that you can receive your certificate on Sunday.

Just a reminder that we can only display on tables and cannot hang anything on the walls so if you wish to have yours on a stand etc you will need to supply that.

So the winner won't be chosen until Sunday?
