Children's Books - Photo Contest 2009

Children's Books Face-painting contest is for face painting designs that can be done in ten minutes or less by a professional face painter. At the least two quarters of the face must be painted. Cheek art, belly or body painting will not be accepted.  Intricate face painting that takes over ten minutes will be rejected. We are looking for more "real world" face painting. We do not want an overload of entries from a specific book. In other words, once we receive five photos from the Dr. Seuss series, we will not select any more photo submissions. Also, as a note... one might find children's books that have Sponge Bob in them (as my example) but he is more known for cartoons rather than for children's books so that entry would be added to the cartoon contest and not the book contest. The Cat in the Hat (as another example) is known more for the book over the cartoon or feature film, so it would only be accepted for the book contest. The photo queen (Kim Hatch) gets the final call to call it a book or a cartoon. There is a maximum of five photos allowed for any one artist in each of the contests. We will give certificates to the top three winners. One certificate per winner, per contest. If we see a very similar photo already posted THEN EXPECT YOUR PHOTO SUBMISSION TO BE DECLINED. We will close the contest after 30 entries.

All photos on this page are protected by copyright.

When you submit photos for any contest they will remain posted. Any changes in text or removal of photo at a later date requires a $5 administration fee.

Other rules.... read this carefully!
1) You may not enter any photo that you have entered before
2) You may not use acrylics or any non-FDA approved face paint in any form. You are otherwise allowed to use any FDA compliant face paint.
3) If your photo is very fuzzy or out of focus it will not be entered. There is no excuse here because we are willing to scan the photo(s) for you.
4) Do not take your photo from 20 feet away. Get as close to your art work as possible. We want to see the art not your entire living room.
