Big Cat Photography and Artwork Contest

:+fav: Please add this news article to your favorites to help spread the word about this contest. :+fav:


The main goal behind this contest is to bring more recognition and respect toward these beautiful and majestic big cats as well as the smaller wild cats. This should result in one of the most stunning feature compilations of big cats with recognition and respect also going toward those photographers and artists who are truly passionate about these wonderful cats. And hopefully with every bit of increased recognition and respect, we may be one small step closer to preventing the extinction of many of these species.

     - Friday, May 28th, 2010 at 11:59pm EST (deadline for contest entries)

Thanks for the contest plug! :) The good part is that people can enter any work of theirs, it doesn't have to be something new or made just for the contest. So it's not too bad if they hear about the contest a little late.

:lol: I know the feeling, that happens to me all the time with contests. I come across one that I'm dying to enter, but the end date is two days away.

But you can always enter drawings that you have already done for this contest, even if you don't have the time to work on an entry! It doesn't have to be a new art piece made specifically for the contest. :)

Does fanart count as well? I'm drawing a lioness from Lion King and was wondering if I can enter it.

Yes, but keep in mind that the judges will probably look more favourably on a piece that is created with original characters or animals rather than a trademarked character.
