SoMD Pokémon Art Contest Submissions Open NOW

The art contest is open now. Go ahead and send your artworks in whatever format you like to this email address:

Please do not send any files over 60MB. In addition to the artwork, please include these things in the email:

  1. Artist’s Name -the name you would like to be credited with, this is what we will use when we post the winners and the somdpokemon art archive. If it happened to be a group effort, please list the names of anyone who contributed.
  2. Email Address we can contact you at- so I can ask you for your mailing address if you win.
  3. The Subject- what is in your artwork? If it’s Voldon standing on top of a shiny Armaldo with a Soul Dew in his hand, then just write “Voldon standing on top of a shiny Armaldo with a Soul Dew in his hand” or if it’s just a Charmander, you can just write “Charmander”. The Pokémon universe is very large, and we want to be sure the audience (and judges) know for sure what is being depicted, especially if you’re covering something obscure or not very well-known.

We will continue taking submissions up to September 24th!

Art Contest Opens This Friday!

That’s right my fellow Pokémon lovers! SoMDPokémon starts accepting submissions for the art contest THIS FRIDAY!

Keep your eyes peeled for the email address that we will give you to send your submissions. I want to give a “thank you” to the players that actually came up with the idea to run an art contest. I take no credit for the idea- I am simply implementing it. I have noticed that this contest has gathered quite a bit of attention, so I am counting on this being loads of fun! Artworks will be judged based on an unspecified formula involving being Pleasing to the Eye, Demonstration of Skill, and Originality.

Art Contest Question

A player has brought up a very good question. Is a player allowed to submit more than one artwork for the art contest?

I think we should keep things simple for now and not complicate this contest with too many rules. I’ve tried to keep things as easy and simple. So, the answer is yes, you may submit more than one artwork for the contest. And remember that, after the artworks are submitted, artist names will be withheld from judges, to prevent any kind of bias.

That being said, do not assume that sending a torrent of artworks will help you. However, you are free to submit as many as you like.

SoMD Pokémon Art Contest Rule Clarification

So, someone asked me to provide a rules clarification for the art contest and I thank him for his very relevant question!

So, rule #2 states: Do not submit artworks that are not Pokémon-related. All artworks must contain some Pokémon monster, character, item, game, location, or event. If you have any doubts, ask!

He asked me if he could use art he made of characters he thought of himself. In some circles, this is referred to as “fakemon”. This deviates from the intent of contest, so I changed clarified the rule:

Do not submit artworks that are not Pokémon-related. All artworks must contain some already-existing Pokémon monster, character, item, game, location, or event. If you have any doubts, ask!
