Themed Art Competition!

SMASH! wouldn’t be the same without our Themed Art Competition, now would it? So step right up, get your thinking caps on and get that creative spark on fire! This year we want to see your imaginations run wild and take our lovable mascots to places they’ve never been. This year’s theme is…

Fairytale SMASH!

Did Cyrus and Skadi grow up reading fairy tales like we did? Well, they’ve discovered a few Grimm tales and want to export some of them to their home planet. Help them illustrate these tales for their people and work them into one! Do what you will with the fairytale – reverse it, twist it, flip it on its head. As long as our sibling mascots are involved (and that we can tell it’s a fairytale), let the magic come alive!

Prizes

To be announced. Watch this space for wishing stars!

Submission Guidelines

• To enter your artwork for Fairytale SMASH!, please bring your art submission to the art room and speak with one of our staff. You will be provided with a competition entry form to fill out and you will be in.

• Traditional medium artworks or digital prints are welcome!

• So you’re not inundated with ideas on what tales to pick, here’s a list of fairy tales that we’ll accept into the competition:

    ◦Snow White
    ◦Cinderella
    ◦The Frog Prince
    ◦Rapunzel
    ◦Hansel and Gretel
    ◦Puss in Boots
    ◦Sleeping Beauty
    ◦Little Red Riding Hood
    ◦Three Little Pigs
    ◦The Little Mermaid

• Entries can either be an illustration or sequential artwork (i.e., comic-book style).

• Be aware that your submission will be on display at the event. This may involve tape or thumbtacks, so we highly recommend that you bring a copy of your submission for display purposes. Please bring along the original for verification.

• Our judging criteria for Fairytale SMASH! are as follows:

    ◦ Execution: Technical expertise and mastery of the medium.
    ◦ Concept: Originality of your concept in adherence to the given theme.
    ◦ Aesthetics: How well your skill is applied to illustrate your concept and the overall visual appeal of your work.

SMASH! 2013 Themed Art Competition

Digital Art Competition!

Are you looking for the DeviantArt competition? Well, the digital landscape moves on and we’ve broadened the scope this year to include all online submissions. But wait, what’s the difference between this and our Themed Art Competition? The answer: You don’t have to attend SMASH! to enter! (Not that we encourage that, far from it!) If you can’t make it on SMASH! day, or you’d prefer a different theme, then this is the competition for you!

ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE!

Our worst fears have come to life! The Zombie Apocalypse is upon us. What awaits our beloved mascots Cyrus and Skadi as they try to outwit the zombie horde? Help them survive the apocalypse and show us how you think they would face the walking dead! Are they running for their lives? Are they survivors running on supplies? Or have they found the cure under the umbrella of a large evil corporation? Whatever zombie cliché there is, we want you to show our mascots the meaning of Double Tap.

Prizes

To be announced! Watch this space for brains!

Submission Guidelines

• To enter your artwork for ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE, please save your artwork as a PNG or JPG. Attach it to your email entry and send it off to our Arts Event Coordinator.

• Entries must be of reasonable size. Please keep dimensions below 3000x3000 pixels or below 5MB (megabytes). SMASH! reserves the right to resize your artwork if you do   not comply with this rule. If you do not wish for your artwork to be resized, we cannot accept your entry.

• Please note that in submitting your artwork for ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE, you agree to allow the hosting of your entry on the SMASH! website.

• Our judging criteria for ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE are as follows:

   ◦ Execution: Technical expertise and mastery of the medium.
   ◦ Concept: Originality of your concept in adherence to the given theme.
