My question is, are computer drawn images ok to submit for contest?
In reality this question is not that clear. There can be artworks, based on photography, but developed by hands. There can be artworks, actually drawn by hand, but not with real pencils or brushes, but with a tablet and help of some computer software. There can be images, actually generated by computer itself automatically without much help of an artist (standard fractals, for example). There can be photographs, deeply alternated (enhanced) in computer, or actually animated in computer (GIF files). There can be other kinds of artworks somewhere in between of the shown media or absolutely new, futuristic experiments. And all that is lost for us in all contest rules somewhere between traditional media and photography and we can not say for sure where can we show that kind of artworks – in the photography contests only, or on the contrary – anywhere, but in the photography contests?
For example. I’ d love to submit the following image into the late “home city contest”, but I am not sure – the image is based on a deeply enhanced photo, and photos are forbidden in that contest.
If you ever have questions, you can send in a support ticket with the image you want to submit and the contest and we can tell you if we think it qualifies.
In case of such orde,r the question of photo or non photo also can be solved by admins easily as they like. As a result artists should be able to upload anything they want, and the responcible admins should decide what to allow into their contests.
