* SUBMITTING your enty:
-MUST be a member of PromoteArt

I would enter, but - looking at the entries - I would be the only non-visual artist submitting. So it's sort of a wasted effort at this point. :/

Maybe consider having separate contests for different artists? I know that probably sounds petty, but it would make more sense and encourage different artists to participate.

Hello, just few questions,
1)What kind of Underwater life you want? Imaginary one (With mermaid, sea serpent) or real one?
2)Do you accept conceptual?
3)How about the judging? Based on what?
Thanks for replying, I'm excited to join!

:iconizka197:
izka197 Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2013
1. any underwater life is ok, both fantasy and real
2. any media
3. voting by members only, I might choose a few judges later (not sure yet) for final decisions. based on well... everything :XD: idea, theme show off, atmosphere, colors if drawing or photo, technique, everything actually since all medias are allowed.
