It’s fun, it’s inspiring and it’s addictive!
We are talking about the new Art Duel feature from ArtWanted!
We have created a new section of ArtWanted called the Art Duel. We randomly select two images from ArtWanted with at least one thing in common (the subject, the media used, the gallery or a keyword). You look at both images and then click on the image you like the best. Your click determines the winner of the duel. Votes and rankings are recorded and shared with the artist. After you have clicked, you will be presented with another dueling pair of random images. Vote again, and just keep on going!
• Provide a creative way to display the wide variety of art/photos on ArtWanted.
• Give our artists more exposure to their artwork.
• Provide artists feedback on their artwork.
• Reward active members of ArtWanted with prizes and artwork exposure.
Some of the prizes include: Free 1 Year Premium Membership, Social Media Exposure Boost, Free ArtWanted products, ArtWanted bank credits and much more!
Each time you click on an image inside the Art Duel page, you are entered into the daily drawing for a prize. The winner will be chosen at random each day and instantly notified while they are voting for images in the duel. We will post all of the initial winners within 2-3 weeks time.
The two images for each duel are selected at random from our huge collection of over 900,000 ArtWanted images. While the selection process is random, you can increase the chances of your art being included in an Art Duel by doing the following:
1. Make sure all your artwork has been assigned the appropriate Subject, Media & Gallery from the Edit Image page.
2. Add 5+ relevant keywords to each of your images (separated by a comma).
3. Uploading new artwork on a regular basis (at least monthly).
4. Login to the ArtWanted website at least monthly.
5. Be an active member of ArtWanted by liking, commenting and favoriting images on the website.
We have created a fun ranking system for members that like the Art Duel feature. Each time you choose a winner in an Art Duel, we record your vote. The more images you pick, the higher your rank level experience will go. Here are the Art Duel levels and the vote count you will advance to the next rank:
• Page (Up to 249 duels)
• Squire (250 duels)
• Knight (1,000 duels)
• Earl (2,500 duels)
• Duke (5,000 duels)
• Prince (10,000 duels)
• King (25,000 duels)
• Emperor (50,000+ duels)
Yes you can. You will see a SKIP button that allows you to not pick a winner for the art duel and be presented with different images. Some people may be tempted to skip a duel if the artwork does not match the common theme between the artwork. However, we still suggest you vote for the image you like the best, even if one or both images don’t match the common theme selected. Skipping a duel will not count toward your rank advancement.
Yes you can. If you don’t want your artwork being seen and voted on from the Art Duel feature, you can opt-out of this program. To do this, simply go to the Art Duel page in your Control Panel and click the link to remove your images from Art Duel. This setting can be changed at anytime.
Yes you can. Each time you pick a winner in an art duel, you will be awarded 1 (one) activity point. These points will accumulate throughout the month and increase your rank on the “Top Active Members” community report.
Yes, we have designed the Art Duel feature to work great on a desktop computer and mobile phone. You can pick the winning artist with just a tap on your phone from anywhere. Why sit and scroll endlessly through social media when you now can vote for ArtWanted dueling artists!
After you have played around with the Art Duel feature for a while, we would love to get your feedback. What do you like and what do you not like? We want to know. We have created a simple survey to collect your comments and we would love to hear from you. Here is the survey link: https://www.artwanted.com/survey/artduel/
