ART OF LIGHT – Visual Art Contest

in #ntopaz5 years ago

Hello Artists and Art Lovers ❤

Seeing many talented artists on Steem is a great inspiration to host more art contests. It’s an opportunity for everyone to contemplate and learn from artists and explore their skills, teachnique, creativeness, mind and soul.

Today I am happy to announce another visual art contest sponsored by @nTOPAZ. The theme of the contest is Art Of Light. You can submit a drawing, painting or photo for this visual art contest. Drawing and painting can be in both traditional mediums or digital.

The key of your artwork is the LIGHT, the light of beauty or concept. This can come from both natural light or your own setup. So lighting is the most important judging criteria in this contest, although other judging criteria will also be used to award the most deserving artworks for prizes.

Submission period

2 weeks from 3 am UTC on 16 Oct 2019 to 3 am UTC on 31 Oct 2019.


The contest is sponsored by @nTOPAZ and they will award Topaz tokens to the winners.

• First Place: 1 winner - 10,000 Topaz Tokens.
• Second Place: 2 winners - 5,000 Topaz Tokens each.
• Third Place: 3 winners - 3,000 Topaz Tokens each.
