Fella's ArtFest Winners: March 2015

Fri Mar 27, 2015, 4:00 PM

Welcome to Fella's ArtFest!

Fella's ArtFest is a monthly contest in which the DeviantArt community can display its love and appreciation for art and all its forms.
Each month's ArtFest has a particular theme! To participate, create an original piece of art (all media are accepted) and submit it to DeviantArt as a deviation! From there, simply submit your deviation to fella's very own gallery into this month's ArtFest gallery folder.

:fella: Entries

The theme for March's ArtFest was gowns
The entries are below! :la:
Gown of TimeLong ago when her gown was new,
Earth showed it off the universe through.
The blue of her skin offset by bright green –
She was the envy of the galactic scene.
Her flowing green skirt was peppered with flowers,
Each one she’d cultivated for many hours.
About perceptions she cared not a whit,
Leaving her time to crochet or knit
The varied purple peaks that dotted the land,
Having room for some on the glove covering her hand.
Elated at how well her dress was received,
Effulgent rays from without and within she weaved.
Azure skin glowed brightly from dusk ‘til dawn,
Radiantly beaming while over her gown they did fawn.
Time passed ever slowly, its beauty did dim,
Her chances of getting a new dress grew grim.
But she refused to give up, and returned to her craft,
Even though at her first efforts others only laughed.
Fibers stretched taut as she sewed a zigzag seam,
Often wiping her brow as she worked for her dream.
Resplendent she’d be, in a spiffy new skirt –
The DressThe Dress
Tiny flowers in whorls and knots
Embroidered within the beads and finery.
Sleeves and neckline adorned with swirls and whirls.
Mother of pearl, that’s what they were.
Buttons of mother’s pearl
Stitched synchronously side-by-side
Upon the beaded bodice of the gown.

:fella: Winners

:star: First Place goes to RogueMudblood who will receive a 6-Month Premium Membership to DeviantArt!
:star: Second Place goes to MagicalJoey who will receive a 3-Month Premium Membership to DeviantArt!
:star: Third Place goes unclaimed because there were only two entries!
* Prizes are courtesy of DeviantArt.

:fella: See you all for next month's ArtFest! :wave:

I want to join MONTHLY CONTEST but i CANT SUBMIT the art into RIGHT gallery. I even go directly to the gallery but there is no way for me to suggest or submit my art :cry: Waaaah! 

May someone there help me or show me how? I would really appreciate it

Hi there,

The monthly contest only runs from the 5th of each month until the 25th. It is currently the 29th, and the monthly ArtFest contest isn't happening right now. You will be able to participate again on July 5th until July 25th, and you must be a member of fella in order to submit your art to the contest. :) 

Have a good day!

I had submitted a piece, *nudges gently thumb to see if I did it right XD*  :thumb453146023:  this one not too long ago for the May competition and it was added to the list but now its not there. its post date is "Submitted on May 9". I'd really love it for this piece to be in the competition. Just would love to have some feedback. Thank you and hope you have a great evening.

I did this picture Pisces by SignHermitCrab for your "Shiny contest", but the "Fella's ArtFest - May 2014" folder is closed. Please could you tell me where I can submit my participation? Thank you.

Are you sure you went into the May folder and not just the ArtFest folder?  Also, are you submitting from your deviation page or going through the group gallery folders?
annewipf Featured By Owner May 12, 2014
I went to "Fella ArtFest" > "May 2014", but there is no link for submitting something :confused:
inknalcohol Featured By Owner May 12, 2014   Writer
I just submitted and it seemed to go through on this end.  Do you have a message in your MC for the request?

Hello! :D I was wondering... Could I submit a piece of art that was created last week into the Fella's Artfest May?
MiloticScale Featured By Owner May 7, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hello there! :wave:

Each month's ArtFest has a binding rule that states entries must be created specifically for the ArtFest contest of that month--meaning its submission date must display a date after the 5th of that month.

Hope that helps!
Jenny345 Featured By Owner May 3, 2014
There are rules. Tell these rule breakers that there are rules. There are several groups that do not belong here. They do not abide by the rules. Neither do some individual artists know that there are rules. Seriously the DA Mods need to police the site better.
