Contest: deviantART feat. Wacom – dreams and prizes

DeviantART and Wacom are proud to present the second Intuos4 “Bring Your Vision To Life” contest! The response to the first “Bring Your Vision to Life” contest and the quality of the entries were amazing, and Wacom is very glad to be back to challenge our community for a second round. Wacom loves the talent, creativity, and boundless energy that deviants have, so let’s wow them again!

While the first contest tackled “Good vs. Evil”, the theme this time is “Dreams“. The contest, open to artists of all visual mediums anywhere in the world, challenges you to show us your dreams and aspirations for the future. Do you long to go to medical school and become a doctor? Do you dream of settling down and starting a family? Maybe you have more lofty dreams of world peace and to put an end to global hunger, or maybe you simply want to do well on an upcoming exam. Show us your hopes and dreams for the future, and bring them to life!

Your entry will be judged on its originality, creative interpretation of the theme, and technical skill. One of the winners will be chosen by you, the wonderful deviantART community!

You can keep up with contest updates and news on Wacom’s profile page.
