Texture Your World Contest

Mon Jan 21, 2013, 6:55 AM

Tell us the story of your world in textures!


We are surrounded 24 hours a day by objects that have texture, they may be smooth or bobbly, old or new, bold, bright, shiny or dull. You might see a texture every day and never notice it until you start looking. Do you sit at a desk that's textured, or pass an interesting tree on the way to work or school?

We want you, in the form of a triptych (thats 3 images forming a larger image see example here - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triptych ) to tell us the story of your textured world. Each individual texture should stand on its own, both as a useful resource and as a cohesive part of the whole story. What story you tell through your texture triptych is up to you - but they must be textures that tell a story of your world in some way.

There are 3 categories for this contest, each of which you can submit to twice.



Digital stock
These are textures created digitally by either manipulation of other stock or painting etc

Photographic stock
These are textures which have been photographed with either a film or digital camera with minimal post editing (if you do a lot of post editing on your textures you might want to consider submitting them to the digital category instead)

Traditional stock
These are textures created with traditional media then either scanned or photographed to convert to a digital medium for submission


Submission Examples



Portrait


Landscape


Square


Submission Rules

  • Each individual texture making up the triptych must be a minimum width/height of 1000 px
  • Full submission triptych must be a minimum width/height of either 1000 px or 3000 px depending on the orientation/formatting you choose, please see examples above.
  • Each deviant may enter up to 2 times per category. (Essentially that's 2 triptychs per category or 6 textures)
  • Judges reserve the right to eliminate entries that do not meet the minimum size requirements shown above
  • Only complete triptychs will be considered as legitimate entries. (3 textures on 1 file/deviation)
  • Triptychs must be submitted to the correct folder as per the contest category in StockandResources
  • Triptychs must be submitted into the correct Resources /Stock Images /Textures /... sub category depending on their style
  • Judges reserve the right to eliminate entries that are not submitted to the correct gallery or contest folder
  • Entries must be new as of the start date of the contest and must be your own work
  • Please state clearly in the description that the work is being submitted to this contest
  • All contest submissions must adhere to DeviantART's Submission Policy

Hi there, I pressed the submit button and uploaded an image, but it didn't give me the option to choose a category, and I'm not sure if it even went into the contest. Can anyone help me out?

The submission is here: [link]

Hello :) You've submitted your textures to traditional art/paintings/abstract which we can't accept as its not a resources/textures sub category.

Please move your entry to an appropriate resources/texture gallery then click here [link] to get to the contest sub folders (on the left).

Please choose the most appropriate media type for your entry! There is a "submit" button in each sub folder on the top right side for you to use.

Thank you for your help. I have changed the category of my textures, but I am still unable to see a submit button in any of the sub folders.

Have you joined the group? Sorry I should have thought to double check first. Its set to auto join so once you've clicked that you should be able to refresh the folder and get the submit button. Its to prevent spam being dumped into the contest folders but it is a pain! Let me know if that solves the issue :)

Thank you for all of your help and sorry for the trouble. I should have realized that I wasn't part of the group. I got the contest announcement through a different group, and didn't realize that it wasn't actually hosting the contest.

Thanks again for your help. Problem solved.

Hey I have a question :)

Does it matter how long the longest side is, as long as the shortest side is at least 1000 pixels? Or do we have to do it in a 1:3 ration?

For example, can I submit an image 1500 x 2100, or would it have to be 1500 x 4500?
Reply
:iconelandria:
Elandria Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013  Professional General Artist
Nope no limit on how big or wide :D As long as the shortest side is no less than 1000 :) So if you want to submit very tall, or very wide, or square its completely up to you. (They also don't have to all be the same size or orientation - how you make up your triptych is entirely up to you :) )

Unfortunately this doesn't currently meet the size requirements of the contest. Each individual texture has to be at least 1000 pixels on the shortest side, which these aren't. The width of each is only 861 pixels.

Please check out our example sizes in the main contest journal. It would also be useful to know how this reflects or shares the story of "your world" :)
