I am so glad you are here! This is a new idea that I had, I thought it would be enjoyable for both myself and for you. Here is where we can interact and you have a possibility for free stickers, and even cooler... to see YOUR image in an artistic sticker form.
So here are the details:
Who: Everyone can participate, there is no age or location restriction. I ask that you sign up as a member, so that you can post in the forum and I will know who to send the sticker to. No information will be shared or sold - EVER.
What: At the beginning of each month I will post the topic for that month. As you go through your days, if you see something that reminds you of the topic, snap a picture and upload it to the forum topic of that month. Limit: 5 images per person, per month. Here is an example, if you submit 4 designs, and I draw up 2 of them... you will receive a sticker for each image (total of 2 stickers).
Where: Post your images in the appropriate month's contest please.
When: Contest starts the 1st of each month and will close at the end of the same month. Stickers will be created, printed and mailed the following month.
Why: I thought it would be fun. It is neat to have a role in the creation of something and I wanted to share that experience.
No copyright images, you must be the taker of the image. Any image taken from the interwebs and pawned off as your own will be deleted and a frowny face will be had by all.
I [Grateful Heartist] retain my creative common right to each image drawn. I retain the right to distribute for sale and profit any sticker created from an image supplied. The supplier of the original image is not entitled to the money from the sale of stickers.
As I am not a lawyer, and I am trying to keep the rules simple and easy to understand, any abuse of this monthly sticker contest can result in termination of the opportunity without warming.
Winners will be notified via the monthly forum. Winning image and resulting sticker image will be shared on social media platform including but not limited to: GratefulHeartist.com, Facebook, Instagram.
I reserve the right to artistically interpret the photo any way I see fit (ex: colors, composition etc.)
No harmful, hateful or slandering images will be accepted.
Tips: The images you post, need not be a beautifully composed photograph, it can simply be a shot of a single item or group of items as the main subject matter. In fact, photos that have a clearly defined subject matter are more likely to be chosen.
Here are a few examples:
