New Fan Art Contest Opens

Sep 03, 2007

Posted by EdwardTLC

Our wonderful contest staff has a new competition for the month of September to bring you today. This new competition asks fan artists from all levels to give us their depiction of a scene from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows along with a brief description, of 100 words or less, referencing the scene and chapter title. Submissions will fall under two categories. First: Hand-Drawn, which will be works in the form of drawings or paintings, or Computer-Generated or Digital Art, which encompasses works created solely or in part using a computer. Submissions in this category must be drawing or painting-based. There will be a strict PG13 rating for all works and photographs, manipulated photographs or animated entries will not be accepted. This artwork must, of course, be completely of your own creation.

The Submission deadline for this contest is September 30, 2007 at 11:59pm EST. To submit your artwork, email [email protected] with the category included in the subject line (i.e. “DH Fan Art – Hand Drawn” or “DH Fan Art – Computer Generated”). You can also upload you work to be included in your fanart portfolio in the Leaky Fan Art Gallery, and tagged “Deathly Hallows Fan Art Contest”. Submissions will be accepted in .jpg, .png, or .gif formats.

There will be a limit of two entries per person to make the competition fair for everyone. Three winners will be chosen from each submission category based upon their interpretation of the scene from the book. Anyone over the age of 13 can submit a Fan Art, including Staff members who are not involved in the judging process. All decisions by our Judges are final.

Complete rules for this contest can be found right here in the Contest Corner forum on our own Leaky Lounge.

Good luck to all who enter!

Great! I can’t wait to see what people come up with. I know there will be scenes a lot of people will want to do.

I kind of wish I could draw to take part, but meh not everyone can draw :P/

Oh and seriously “First?!” lame mate. You could’ve said something then said first. But Noooo. shakes head

If he had written anything else, he could have ended up second. :)

I’ll give it a shot and try to do the dragon escape scene on pencil. I’m pretty sure I won’t be the only one since that bit rocked and I sort of like drawing things with itsy bitsy detail (sometimes to cover up my shortcomings).

I don’t have a gallery account though. Will look up into that. Do I have to fill the gallery with stuff or just a couple would do, because I don’t really draw that many Harry Potter themed stuff anyway.

This could have some really cool pics, as long as we don’t see a trillion ginny/harry or ron/hermionie make outs.

Is there a restriction on fanart done by more than one person? My friend does the drawing and I do the color and texturing… we’re a team, of sorts. Are we allowed to submit something under both our names, or do all the works need to be by a single artist?
