About the contest
They're sometimes crawly and often creepy; they make up an uncomfortably large part of our bodies; and they're the theme of our latest art contest. What are these tiny wonders of evolutionary engineering? Bacteria! (In case you missed that big graphic up there or the title of this post).
Why make an art contest about these little guys? Why not? It's definitely more interesting than another "Landscapes" theme, and will hopefully spark some new creative ideas. Also if you put some of the words together you get "Bacteriart," so there's that.
- Art should be original, created for this contest
- Only one entry per person (you can submit more than one if you really want but only one will be entered into the final vote)
- Entries will be judged in a public vote here in the forum after the deadline
- The art should adhere to the theme as close as possible (i.e. please don't just submit some abstract blobs that you did two years ago)
About the new Foundmyself gear shop
In my spare time I've created and have been adding some designs to the new Foundmyself shop at Zazzle, so refresh it every once in a whlie to see new designs come in. By the time the contest is done there will be many more you can choose from.
Also, if you have any suggestions for a design/theme you'd like to see, let me know! I thought this would be a fun way to offer prizes for some of the contests here since they're out-of-pocket anyway, and the products help promote the site a bit offline where the fleshy creatures live. What do you think?
