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.

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.

I've submitted here: [link] but how do I submit it to the actual contest gallery? :S
