deviantHEART is pleased to announce that we will be holding our 2nd Annual Kindness Quilt Contest!

:star: What is a Kindness Quilt?
Kindness Quilts are photo collages that are made up of custom Quilt Squares. They are positive and often tell a story of some kind. The templates come in two sizes, 3x3 and 4x4.
Here is a sample quilt for reference
A Love Story Kindness Quilt: ARK Project by iLantiis

:star: The Theme
"My Inspiration" In the spirit of kindness and community togetherness, we decided to pick a theme that will let participants be creative and will also benefit others! For this theme, you will create a kindness quilt as a tribute to a fellow deviant who has helped and inspired you throughout your DA experience!

:star: The Contest Specifics
Start date: June 22nd
End date: August 30th
Gallery: Kindness Quilt Contest 2014 (submit entries here)
Category: Community Projects / Projects & Clubs / The Kindness Quilt
Voting begins: September 1st
Voting ends: September 15th
Winners announced: by September 20th
Resources: Quilt Pack and Quilt Square
Submission Requirements: Must be in the form of a quilt! Quilts accepted in sizes 3x3 and 4x4 (3x3 demo quilt - if you are adventurous enough to do a 5x5, we will accept those too). Quilts must be positive, must not use anything against dA rules, must credit all resources properly and may not be a group collaboration. Any visual medium can be used to create the quilt squares (photography, digital, craft, traditional, manipulations, etc). Fanart IS accepted. Bases ARE NOT accepted unless you can link to the original base showing it is not against dA rules (many traced bases are - judges will be picky when it comes to use of resources). Since this is a project that benefits others, you may submit as many quilts as you like for as many deviants as you like, but ONLY ONE WILL BE CHOSEN.
Participants need not be a member of deviantHEART!

:heart: Judges and Judging
:bulletpurple: Judges
:icondmd-ct: :iconilantiis: :iconamour-raven: :iconriemea: :iconicesis: :iconshadowkittyzerolilly: :iconthegalleryofeve: :iconinknalcohol:

:bulletpurple: Judging Parameters
Judges will be judging on creativity, establishment of mood and artistic improvement of the chosen visual medium. While entries must display some artistic knowledge, artistic style and ability will not be pitted against other artists. Instead, for the purposes of artistic improvement, each participants art will be judged against the most recent art in their gallery that is the same type as their quilt. So if an artist uses photographs to create their quilt, judges will look at the most recently submitted photographs in their gallery to see if they tried to improve upon their technique for this contest.

I don't mean to be a bother, but...

link to the original base showing it is not against dA rules (many traced bases are)

Could somebody elaborate on this please, because just recently I saw some people talking about how it was apparently ok for someone to trace over your art and make a base out of it (sometimes the bases are even sold!) without crediting the original artist or needing their permission, and that there's nothing we can do about it because there is a category specifically for "traced bases."  It's rather upsetting to think others are allowed to strip the person in your picture naked, rip off the hair and make it into a stock when you're the one who did all the hard work. :worry:

Where did you hear that from? Was it from another user? I ask because a lot of rumors get circulated through the community via journals, polls, etc. and many are not necessarily true. :-)

Ok, I had a really really hard time tracking this down. xD I saw it a couple weeks ago and the dA search keywords only go by journal titles, or something, it took a while to find it again.

It was here.

The point they're addressing is to use a base, you need permission from the person who made the base, but it doesn't mention that the base maker needs permission to make the base in the first place.  Since there's a category specifically for traced bases, and just tracing the base doesn't replicate it in "exacting detail" because you left off the clothes/background/etc, it makes it look like it's perfectly ok for people to trace your stuff AND repost it for others to use.  D:

If someone uses your artwork without permission, you can report them and it will be removed.

Is making a "traced base" of your art without permission reportable?  What is that category for?  Only tracing things that are allowed to be traced (stock photos, etc)?  You can't just trace whatever you want?

Making the base creates a "new" image, so they didn't really edit your picture and didn't really re-upload something you made in exacting detail because they changed stuff (like taking off the clothes/hair).  Is it against the rules for them to do that?  :/
