Greetings from one of the mods over at egl_comm_art
We advertised on egl
when the art community was first created just less than a month ago. We're a community based around Lolita artwork, a friendly place to post your work and get helpful critiques (or if you just want to share artwork you did without fear of being torn apart by the non-art community ;)). In addition to being a great place to show off your mad art skillz and ask for help and suggestions, one of the things that we're doing to keep the community active is having art contests! We've two different kinds right now:Monthly theme contests!
- Each month is given a different theme (announced before the start of said month). For instance, May's theme is Summertime! Artists have until a week before the end of said month to complete and post a piece of their own creation based on that theme. The winner of the theme contest will get their name and piece featured in the layout of the community for one month (until the following month's winner is chosen, and it carries on this way). To keep competition fair, the same person may not win consecutive months (we may extend the period between wins if the same people end up winning every other month, just to give everyone a chance). More info about the monthly theme contests can be found here
May's theme contest is currently over, but the voting just started yesterday! Please go vote for May's winner!
The voting for this contest will go until June 2nd (we started a little late this time ^^*),
and June's theme will be announced before June 1st. June's theme has been announced!
The theme for June is "Fanart"! Please see here
for details!Art contests for prizes!
- These are contests set to a specific theme (separate from the monthly theme), where you can win tangible prizes! The current contest is to create a piece of artwork to use as the profile picture for the community and an accompanying icon, using art as the theme. The prizes for this contest are:
- Three (3) month minimum feature in the icon and profile of the community.
- One (1) lineart commission from wonderfinch
- One (1) Brown x White Heart-Topped Jumperskirt
from Bodyline (an alternate prize can be arranged if the winner does not wish to give out their mailing address) This contest is currently accepting submissions until June 8th!
The rules for this contest are here
. For future contests, we're welcoming donations for prizes! Please contact either myself or wonderfinch
if you have a Lolita item you'd like to donate for a future prize.You must be a member in order to enter any of the contests

You don't need to be a member to vote though, so I encourage everyone to go vote! ;)Note! egl_comm_art is in no way affiliated with egl!
missmeganmaude was consulted before making this post. Per her suggestion, we will make a post here at the start of each contest and voting period.
