Community Week

Iconic Tribute Contest


:new: View the winners of the contest here: Iconic Tribute Contest Winners!

People like David Bowie, Harper Lee, Prince, and, of course, Alan Rickman among many others, have had huge impacts in art, culture, and even education. Their loss was felt by fans worldwide. The internet overflows with tributes in the forms of tweets, paintings, renditions of songs, films, memes, etc.

For this contest, we want you to think about an artistic or cultural influence that has had a great impact on your own creative process, and create a piece of work inspired by that connection. Your cultural icon doesn't need to be someone who has died, but it can be. It doesn't need to be one person, but it should be someone or a group of people who were alive in your own lifetime (so no using Shakespeare or Dante!).


Though some of our stars are certainly angelic.


RULES


The contest begins on May 9th, 2016 and ends on May 23rd, 2016. That gives you 2 weeks!

  • One entry per person. No collaborations.
  • All mediums and genres are allowed. Mature content should be tagged appropriately. 
  • For literature, prose should be no more than 3500 words; poems no more than 150 lines
  • Photomanipulations MUST include credit/links to all stock and resources used
  • Entries must be created specifically for this contest and uploaded to DA on or after May 9th, 2016.
  • Your artist comment should include a brief paragraph about who you've chosen for your idol (even if it is obvious from the artwork) with information about why you chose that person/group. Please also include a link back to this contest announcement.
  • Your idol needs to be someone who is publically famous. Sorry, but your grandma (who is undoubtedly amazing) doesn't count for this one.



But you do, Cory! You do. :crying:


JUDGING


Entries will be evaluated based on three categories:

:bulletpink: Use of Theme :bulletpink:

We're looking for work that really delves into the idea of how our idols influence our own creative endeavors. We're not necessarily looking for portraits of our favorite stars, but rather art that shows how their influence helps us create.

:bulletpink: Technical Skill :bulletpink:

Since this is a contest, we do want the best work you can whip up in the time frame. Pay attention to detail, use spell check, get a second set of eyes on it before you submit. 

:bulletpink: Appeal to Emotion :bulletpink:

What makes us love our icons is the way they can speak straight to our hearts. Your work should attempt to do the same, saying something real and honest about the way this person/group has affected you.

Your judges are:

Make us love you like you're Marilyn.

I think I made it to the deadline...? 
Anyway, here's my submission: Kureha - Hitoshi

The "icon" I chose may not be wildly famous, but he did make a name for himself in the Asian music scene. And even if he has already passed away, he has been and still is one of my muses. Unfortunately, that means the description can read a little on the long side. I hope you'll forgive me! 

Can't wait to see all the contestants! :w00t:

As long as they're famous outside their own town/family, it counts. :)
