I find it unfair that the semi-finalists are only from the United States. It's like saying sorry other people if you're not from the States, you don't get a shot at being a semifinalist, no matter how good your submission is. I have not participated, but seeing such blatant national favoritism is a bit infuriating, to say the least.

I say congrats to the Semi-Finalists, but I agree with the fact, that there all digital media art, and that it is really disappointing that all the traditional art that is true art, didn't make it.

All of these are not digital. There are at least 3, that used traditional mediums, and several others that appear to be a mix of traditional and digital. What's disappointing is the idea that art is true, based on what medium is used. There's more to art than the tools used to make it. Concept, composition, color, technique. To say that a person who puts in the same amount of work, effort, and skill as one who does traditional work is less of an artist than one who does traditional, is a very narrow minded thing to say. It's just the same as saying a person who writes their story by hand with pen and ink is more of a writer than one who types it. Paint, Crayon, Charcoal, digital-- they're all just tools. Some require more work than others, but they're all just tools that the artists uses to bring their vision to life.

FINALLY! YES.

"Digital" or "Traditional"... either way, both are visual representations of an idea.

you obviously don't know what you are talking about. You're missing the entire point. There is 0 variety in this contest. Digital, photoshop, photography, nothing here is done by hand. It is all computer driven artwork. There is no denying, the proof is right above you. Scroll up and look. Not one work is done by hand. You might say that these r the best ones because the judges picked them, but the truth is these judges are fools just like anyone who comes on this site and tries to say digital media and traditional art take the same amount of work to create. Its like comparing Mozart to Nickleback. People might like Nickleback and if they had a good song maybe i would too. Too bad they dont. What im trying to say is many people who do digital media on here arent talented, they just have a computer. And this was a contest involving a serious opportunity that people worked hard for. I blame the judges.

Hey if you scroll up and see the fifth and sixth entries, you'll see two semi finalist entries that were done very much by hand.

You're missing the point. The point is NEITHER about the variety in materials NOR the time it takes to make a piece. It's the end result; THE IMAGE and its ability to COMMUNICATE its concept.

Everything here is done by hand. Nobody here just magically created their work without effort on their own part. There is SO much art has to offer!

the images created BY HAND were ignored. Better images then the ones chosen here. Thats only my opinion, i get that. But i'd bet a lot of money if someone with artistic credentials decided what pieces were chosen the outcome of this contest would by MUCH different. And by artistic credentials i mean an artist. An actual, accomplished artist. In fact, a whole panel of artists.
