Spring Spotlight Challenge! Showcase Your Art on Craftsy

Do you dream of seeing your art in the spotlight? We want to make it a reality with our Spring Spotlight Challenge!

We couldn't resist making this challenge all about flowers. Simply recreate a floral scene, and your piece could be featured on Craftsy! Plus, if our art editor selects your work to be featured, you'll win a free online class.

Realistic Watercolor FLower by Anna Mason

Take any approach that fits your creative style, and use any medium you like. Maybe you'll try a realistic watercolor, like the big bloom above from Anna Mason's Realistic Watercolor: Step by Step class.

Realistic Colored Pencil Flower By Cynthia Knox

Or perhaps you'll sketch flowers that pop off the page, like from Vivid Flowers in Colored Pencil with Cynthia Knox.

Those are just a few ideas — the possibilities are endless! We can't want to see your interpretation.

Here's how to submit your work

1. Create a floral composition in your desired medium.

2. Send a photograph of your finished art project to artsubmissions@craftsy.com by May 1, 2017. Be sure to include a sentence or two about your interpretation.

3. Submissions will be reviewed, and the winners' work will be posted on our site after May 3, 2017.

Hi!

I’d love to enter a photograph of my finished art project, but when I type in ‘artsubmissions@craftsy.com’ it just takes me to the Google list. I can’t access a place to submit my work. It more or less circles back to this post.

Can you help me submit my piece?

Thanks,
Vicki Anderson (vicki.linn56@gmail.com)

Hi Vicki,
It sounds like you might be trying to go to a web page, but we’re accepting submissions via email. Please try and send an email of your project the email address artsubmissions@craftsy.com, and we should receive it.

What do you mean by “interpretation”?

Hi Sierra,
By that, we just mean how you interpret the prompt. There are countless ways you could create a floral scene! I hope that helps!

I just receive this notice this morning (May 3) and am disappointed that it didn’t arrive sooner. I would have loved to enter this contest with one of my colored pencil drawings.
