The Muppet Newsflash's Fan Art Calendar Contest

Discussion in 'Fan Art' started by GelflingWaldo, Nov 11, 2007.

    The Muppet Newsflash is proud to announce their first ever contest! We are calling all artists, of all abilities and styles, to submit their best Muppet fan art. We want to showcase the talents of Muppet fans around the world by creating the first ever Muppet Fan Art Calendar. 2008 is quickly approaching (there are just 50 days left in '07) and we want to create a calendar for the fans by the fans. The calendar, featuring twelve original fan creations, will be available for purchase online starting in January. Each month will feature artwork and graphics made by fans just like you.

    So we are calling for all artists and graphic makers to submit their best Muppet-themed artwork. Images will be selected by a panel of expert judges, and the twelve most creative images will featured in the calendar. Art work can be based on The Muppets, Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, The Dark Crystal or any other Jim Henson creation(s). All the nitty-gritty details for the contest can be found on the official 2008 Fan Art Calendar Contest page. We want this calendar to represent entire fan community, and encourage all artists of all ages and abilities to send in their personal creations.

    Submissions must be submitted by December 31, 2007 at 11:59pm. You can submit pre-existing artwork that you've made – however all artwork must be your own creations. Please don't think you need to be Monet to submit a graphic or two, or three, or twelve for the contest. Send your submissions to gelflingwaldo@yahoo.com (be sure to put "Muppet Fan Art Calendar Contest" in the subject line).

    The winners will be notified on January 1, 2008 and the calendar will become available sometime in the first week of January. I'll be sure to keep you all updated as the contest develops. So get your box of crayons and a sheet of construction paper (or whatever art medium you prefer to work in), or go dig through your portfolio of your greatest fan creations, and send in your best Muppet art! Good luck!

    Thanks. I hope we get a lot of submissions here. The Muppet community has so many talented people with a real love for the Muppets and Jim's work. I hope we get broad and diverse selection of artists to send in work.

    My only regret is not having coming up with this idea a month or two earlier (so we could be ordering the calendars around Thanksgiving and have them available for Christmas)... eh, maybe next year we'll start things earlier .

    But I can't wait to get my hands on the final product. It should be a highlight of my 2008 wall decor. This should be something great - for the fans by the fans!

    Well, I think you should. ;)

    I keep forgetting to scan my two entries in. My home scanner isn't connected at the moment so I'll have to plan a trip to Kinkos...two blocks away. ;)

    Just thought I'd share that I'm working on a few pieces and I'll send them in as soon as I can! :)

    Thought I'd bump this thread again. Finally sent my two entries off. Tried to scan them better, but they turned out rather mediocre when transferred. Fingers crossed. If you've been around MC for a while, you'll know just the two drawings I submitted. ;)

    *read that as: "I'll be sending my son"* I thought, appropriote for this season, but a little extreme maybe.

    Your so funny Beau. But if i did have a son. Maybe i could send him to Greg and let him enter him into the contest. Don't know how much Greg would enjoy him but......maybe.

    If you like waiting 'til the last minute...

    There are just a few days left to send in entires. So whether you have some old fan art collecting dust somewhere or are just finishing up your latest creation, be sure to send them in. This contest ends on Monday, but you still have a good chance of getting your work into the calendar - all you have to do is send in your creations before 2007 (and this contest) come to a close.
