Portfolio Contest

Brought to you by your local [Linderel].

Everyone knows about those arts courses where, at the end, you will have to submit all the work you've done during the course in a portfolio, right? Well, this concept is quite similar to that.

Each week, I will post a theme which you will then have to portray. There will be ten given themes. Aside from those, your portfolio page should have two more pieces, the subject of which will be up to you. Please note that the last given theme always consists of five options - whether you choose to portray only one or several or even all of them in your piece is up to you.
Optionally, you may also make a portfolio folder in real life and submit a picture of it (or make an image of what it would look like on the computer, either works) for extra credit. I want you to give this contest your utmost effort - after all, the portfolio may prove itself useful later.

The contest is split in three categories, each of which will have five entrants minimum. You may sign up for all, if you so wish, but I'd recommend choosing only one to focus on - that way we have room for more variety as well. The themes will mostly be the same for all categories.

Art Portfolio is for drawings in traditional and digital mediums, all the way from oil paint to Paint Shop Pro.

Photo Portfolio is for photography, whether taken with a traditional film camera or the newest digital one.
NOTE: No heavy photomanipulations allowed. You may do the following: tweak levels and/or brightness and contrast; add a border; convert to greyscale or sepia tones. I want to see what you can do with your camera.

Writing Portfolio is for poetry, drabbles and short stories. There are no firm word limits in either direction, but don't write a novel. Avoid fan fiction if possible.

I will give out a final deadline after all the assignments have been posted. Contestants have until that date to finish up. Portfolios that have at least a half of the assignments carried out will be included in the judging, but full ones are naturally preferred.

1. All work, naturally, MUST be yours and yours alone. Collaborations are allowed only with another participant of this contest. If you use stock (allowed for graphics) or reference, credit accordingly - with links, if possible.
2. Read the themes! Each week, there will be a new subject matter which you will have to portray as you see fit.
3. No graphic scenes of either sex or violence. Please rate your work using the scale from G to R. For reference:
4. Upload all images and graphics to Elftown.

I will judge the contest myself with at least two other people. Everything counts: the quality of your entries, originality of thought, even the way you display them on the wiki. There will be one winner for each category, all to receive a badge - and praise. In addition they may request a piece of jewellery.
There is a participant badge.
I will also choose a personal favourite from each category. Here, all started portfolios count.

Have fun!
