PREVIOUS WINNERS!

RAINBOY by irbi-art The Things We Lose To Time‘Once,’ his mother said, some kind of sadness slowly taking over her face, ‘he thought it to be his most precious thing, this old guitar of his…’
Even though it was beaten and broken when he had first bought it, slightly charred from the flames which had prompted the store-wide sale in the first place, it still played, and that alone was more enough for him, back then.
‘Once?’ the young man asked, taking the guitar in his arms. It was clearly old, and full of scars. Someone, however, had taken great care to make sure it could still be played.
‘Yes,’ his mother whispered, as he let his fingers dance carefully along the fragile strings, filling the air with a soft, quiet melody. ‘Once…’
He had carried it everywhere, from park to school, in a bag which had been no better than the instrument, the fabric from which it was made full of holes and pulled apart by time, and rain, and fingers gripping too tight on

Here at CollaborativeMinds we want to encourage the melding of the two big players here on Deviant Art, our Writers and our Artist! Working together for a common goal brings people together, and it is how some friendships can begin and grow into something special. You don't even need to have a partner to start with! Just post in either of or our seeking folders and maybe that person will come to find you. If you already have a partner please when you are finished with your collaboration submit it into the Collaborations folder. (Make sure if both of you are submiting your work separate that it has the same name, so we know they belong together)

The Third Annual Awareness of the Arts Contest


Remember The Theme for This Year is: Journey


*update April 18th* new prize package and more points added!
*update April 24th* commission added to 1st place!
*update May the 4th be with you* There is no registration cut off for this contest. You can sign up until the last day of the contest as long as you get your entries in by midnight EST! Just know there will be NO time Extensions!
*update May 5th* 500 :points: total added to prizes!
Also the Awareness of the Arts:  Journey Contest folder is open!

More than, 10,000 :points: to be won!

What it is:

Take one Artist and one writer and have them compete together. The Artist draws, or photographs or manipulates their craft; The Writer, writes a poem or short story based off the artist work *please keep written works to 1000 words or less*. It works the other way too, you can create art from literature too! La la la la 

Of course we have a theme Journey and your work needs to fit. We are a family here lets show the rest of the world what one form of social media can do. We can bring people from all walks of life with all talents together for one cause.

If you can find your own buddy awesome, if you need help finding a buddy we will pair up loners after asking two questions... Art or Writing? and What is your fav genre to work in? *just comment on this journal* If there are not enough in a particular catigory we will do our best to match everyone up!

Calendar Personal Smiley When: Calendar Personal Smiley 

This contest will run from May 1st to June 30th! After the conclusion of the contest please give us at least 2 weeks for judging before asking for the results... I will make a journal entry as soon as we come to a decision. We will make a poll for you to choose your favorite pair but know, the judges will be responsible for the final decision!

:tribblela: How to enter::tribblela: 

Both buddies will create their entries after consulting with one another on who will create the first deviation. Then the second participant will create their deviation as an interpretation of the first deviation. Both deviations will need to make sure to tag the other deviation in their comments on the deviation as well as tag this journal entry. Then both of you will need to submit your deviations once the folder opens May 1stYou will also need to use the same title on your works so we know they are together. 

Need help with tagging: How to link deviants, deviations, or websites!
*note* any art style is accepted ex: photography, photo-manips, all forms of digital and traditional art including pixel art! Please keep short stories and poetry to 1000 words or less (otherwise it will be disqualified). Your piece must be created specifically for this contest and made after April 1st.

It is not necissary to join OurDreamsWillCome or CollaborativeMinds although we would be glad to have you as a member.

:paranoid: Rules: :paranoid:

Absolutly No nudes, and No gore and please keep foul language to a minimum as OurDreamsWillCome and CollaborativeMinds are groups for all ages of deviants.

Sorry, No Fan Art! I know, I know, but I want to see originality at its 
finest! I know that all of you are capable of coming up with truly original works and can't wait to see them!

Keep written works to 1000 words or less (no exceptions). All forms of art are accepted.

*Importaint* If you use any bases, photos, or any other stock that is not yours please do not forget to give credit to the owner... as this will disqualify your team, once judging has started.

*Importaint* So I know you read the rules, and so your work can be accepted, please link this journal in the comments/description of your entry. 
Thank you!

Hey there, I wanted to suggest this deviation (not mine) but there's a limit 1 per 7 days. And I'm sure in a week I'll totally forget about it so maybe one of admins would like to request it :B
