UPDATE:

We are now at the end of the contest!  Thank you to EVERYONE who participated!  We got 57 ENTRIES!  Holy, and all of them amazing.  We are asking our judges to now start their votes and get back me ASAP!  As for all of YOU, please visit Art Libs here artlibs.blogspot.com/2010/04/s… to check out all of the entries and vote for your favourite 3!  Tell all your friends if you're entered and have them vote for you and their favourites!  Go now!  Follow the instructions on how to vote at the link listed above!  I'll keep voting open until all the judges get back to me!


A CONTEST!  A CONTEST!  Hoorah!  Basically, it's just what the title says.  I want to see YOU!  Not just any picture of you though, I want to see what you see when you look in the mirror.  What makes you who you are, who you want to be.  What embodies you and your life?!  

Simple?  Yes, yes it is.  This contest is open to ANY visual medium (basically anything except literature... sorry!); photography, drawing, digital art, vectors etc.  You can make your portrait abstract/open to interpretation or you can make it a bang on duplicate of you.  For photographers, I want to see something with depth in it, not just a photo you took of yourself for Facebook or MySpace or whatever.  You can add backgrounds, use other elements to help convey you, or whatever.  Be original and creative.  Each entry should have a brief description of what your portrait is all about, but don't go into too much detail!

DEADLINE: The deadline as of right now is going to be April 10th!  Now that seems like a long ways away, but hat gives you LOOOOOTS of time to come up with some amazing self-portraits and for my prizing to gather for all you lovelies!
