Alien Skin – the results

July 5, 2010

And the results are in… it was a very close contest this time around, with our Alien Skin themed entries.

One again, only three members got their entries finished in time – can we get more people entering in July?

We ask our members to score each entry out of 10 for how well it suits the theme: Alien Skin, and then out of 10 for style – giving a maximum 20 points.

The scores are added for each entry and then divided by the number of voters to create an average score out of 20.

So, in reverse order…

Starting the new year with a bang

January 1, 2010

It’s January 1st, 2010 – and the start of the ‘tenties’ as I saw someone mention on Twitter.

With the festivities out of the way, I hope no one has forgotten that there’s a painting challenge deadline on Sunday January 10th – which is our Silent Night theme. There’s still plenty of time to get your entry prepped, painted and photographed – so get your brushes out and get cracking.

You decide

October 13, 2009

Voting for themes up to 3 months in advance seems to be working out well, so it’s about time to decide what painting challenge themes we’ll be facing over Christmas and into the new year.

The December challenge will run into January, as we know that everyone is too busy over the holidays to remember to post pictures, so you get a couple of extra weeks as the deadline will be January 10th.  There will not be a separate January challenge.

As the festive season is approaching there is a separate poll just for the December painting challenge, with some suggestions that are inspired by the season.

Please pick your fav 2 themes, the one with the most votes will become the Decemeber challenge.

*Poll is now closed*
