I hope you all had a fantastic Valentine's Day last week! Well done spreading the love to all. :love:

This week, we're continuing the love trend. :heart: We're doing an art creation contest. However, there's a twist -- you must use three pre-determined items in your piece!

We want you to create a deviation including three specific items that revolves around our theme of love:

Your deviation must contain these images:
:bulletyellow: Tree
:bulletyellow: Olive
:bulletyellow: Bottle

How you incorporate these items around the theme of love is up to you!

Of course, you may use more than the objects above, but all three of those objects must appear. Feel free to create whatever inspires you! Maybe someone is creating a model tree with olive-colored leaves in a bottle to give to his love. Or, maybe two olives are sitting in a tree, sipping wine from a bottle. Whatever your mind creates, we want to see it!

You can draw, take a photograph, write a story, use digital or traditional media -- it's up to you! Let your imagination fly free. Feel free to make as many entries as you'd like.

All entries must be submitted to the Tree, Olive, Bottle Gallery folder. We'll choose three winners who will receive a dA PRO Nomad Bag! Winners will be chosen based on creativity, inclusion of the theme, inclusion of the three items, and artistic interpretation.

All entries must be submitted by Tuesday, February 26, 2013 at 11:59 PM Los Angeles, CA, time. Please indicate that your piece is for the #PremiumMembers contest in the deviation description. 

Show us a scene featuring a tree, olive, and bottle hidden somewhere within your work. How are you inspired? Let us see! :eager:

    So the picture doesn't necessarily have to do with love? Just as long as we include those three things??

    I love olives ;u; so I'm excited abou this contest :iconmoeblushplz:

if this contest open to anyone but only the member that eligible to win the prizes, then is there's a must to be a premium member to join the group? :)

Yes, exactly. You can't join the group if you're not a Premium member... (for the record, I'm not a member of that group even though I'm premium).
If you wish to join just for fun, without winning anything then feel free to enter, but if not... I suggest you find some other contests that is actually open to anyone, and who can win prizes regardless of your status.

See my signature link about contests, you'll find many others there.
Also this group: #Contest-Office, #Good-Intention or #DevNews advertises contests. : )

They said it was open to -anyone-, but since the prizes are for premium members only there's no real point for non-premiums to try, in my opinion.

I'm not. I'm just irritated that this is in the footer when it's meant for a select group. What if some people can't afford a subscription?

Kohaya7Kae-13 Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh I know what you mean... I also found it in the footer. I guess it's because the contest journal is from a Senior Member? (Because aside from giveaways that non-Senior Member holds, most that get into footer are from Seniors.

Could be. This particular Senior usually posts community info that immediately gets into the footer, too. dA needs to fix that, if that's the case.

Then why bother saying anyone can enter? Why not just lock it to Premium users like you did with the prizes?
