Theme


The theme for the November contest is "Candid Moments" (suggested by cat-breath). You can interpret this however you would like, and all art mediums are allowed! :dummy:


Deadline


The deadline has been extended a week to Sunday, November 17th at 11:59 PM GMT.


Judging


The admins and I will vote to pick five semi-finalists from all of the submitted contest entries. Then all of the members of this group will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite one, and you will be able to pick the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. :la:

If we receive several dozen entries (and we typically do with long contests like these) we will also have Runner-Ups and Honorable Mentions. :eager:

Admins will be judging contest entries using the following criteria:

- Creativity and originality (20%)

- Use of Theme (20%)
- Impact (20%)

is there a german translation for "candid moments"? I don't get it D:

candid bedeutet soviel wie wahr, ohne vorurteile, ungestellt, spotan, natürlich usw. Candid moments sind dann also natürliche/ungestellte/"wahre" momente. Das ist zumindest meine Erklärung.^^
Für Candid Moments gibt es leider keine 100%ige Übersetzung, meines wissens.

Nope. I think that for the sake of the judges, you wouldn't want to submit a novel, but long passages are fine. :aww:

Themes are meant to be very vague, that is what leaves it open to interpretation for each artist. So it is hard to explain it more when it can mean so many different things, there is no wrong way to interpret it. If you need to, using the dictionary or thesaurus for the word or term "candid" could help you get inspired, or talk to people you know..

It is open for interpretation, but if this helps: The English dictionary defines candid as: 
can·did  [kan-did]  
adjective
1. frank; outspoken; open and sincere: a candid critic.
2. free from reservation, disguise, or subterfuge; straightforward: a candid opinion.
3. informal; unposed: a candid photo.
4. honest; impartial: a candid mind.
