Artist Playing Card Project Updates

We have recently announced a special project to create several decks of playing cards that feature the artists on ArtWanted. We are very excited about this project and hope we can get lots of participation from our talented members.

This project will be moving through various phases throughout the year, so we decided to create this project message thread to share updates on the project. Each time we have something to share about the project, or a deadline is coming up, we will post it here. You can always come back here for the latest information on the playing card project.

This message thread has been locked, so only our staff can post updates. This has been done to keep the thread clean and on topic. If you have questions about the project, we invite you to submit a support ticket, and we will get right back with you.

Previously, artists were only able to upload 2 images for the Fantasy/Sci-Fi playing card deck. To add more variety to the deck artwork, we have increased the upload limits for this deck. Now artists can submit 2 images for each theme (Fantasy & Sci-Fi) for a total of 4 images for this deck.

If you have additional artwork you would like to upload to this deck, please visit the upload page and upload your additional images. Thanks!

We have now entered the voting phase for the Artist Playing Card project! All members of ArtWanted are invited and encouraged to review the animal artwork submitted for this project and vote on your favorites.

How to Vote?

First, visit our voting page. You will be shown a random image and asked to rate that artwork from 1-5 stars (higher being better). If you wish, you can also type in an optional artwork comment for the artist while rating. After voting, you will be shown another image to vote on. You can vote for as many images as you like.

Voting will be open on the Animals artwork for two weeks and will end on April 30th. Voting for the other playing card deck (Fantasy/Sci-Fi) will happen in May.

Choosing Final Artists

There will be 54 different artists chosen for this animal deck. The artwork with the highest rating will be chosen to be included in the final product. If an artist has two images that qualify, only one of those images will be selected to allow additional artists to be included.

We have seen some amazing artwork submitted for this project. We apologize that not all artists can be included in the final selection. We hope this project is a success and we can create many more decks and have more opportunities for artists to participate.

Winners Info

Qualifying winners of this contest will be notified within the first few weeks of May. Those artists will need to confirm they want to participate in the playing card project. We will also ask these artists for additional information for the project and be required to sign a short artwork release statement. If there are artists that do not fill out all the required information, they will not be included with the project and we will allow other artists to participate, based on their artwork rating.
