Consider Art II: 2023


Attention friends, artists, and animal-lovers alike! As you may know, Consider Nature is dedicated to shining a spotlight on some of the animal kingdom’s most underrated members, animals who get overlooked despite being fucking awesome. To help further our goal, we will be hosting Consider Art II: Electric Boogaloo! For this competition, artists are asked to create pieces depicting or inspired by an animal covered in the Consider Nature blog since the last Consider Art Competition! This includes:



Submissions will be judged based on their originality, quality, successful depiction of the animal, and whether or not the judges of the competition and I subjectively like it. Contestants are asked to consider (har har) the environmental impacts of these species, as well as their unique forms and aesthetic beauty.


All submissions are due DECEMBER 1st! Please check the submission guidelines below before entering your piece, as there is a specific process for entering a piece of art in this competition.


PRIZES:


Here at Consider Nature, we are aware that exposure doesn't do a very good job of putting food on an artist's table. So, the top three art pieces submitted for the competition will receive cash prizes via either Venmo or Cashapp. A winning artist may alternatively choose to donate their prize to a conservation charity of their choice.


First Place: $100

Second Place: $50

Third Place: $25


All winning pieces will also be posted on the Consider Nature blog as well as on our social media (with full credit to the artists and links to their social media). Honorable mentions may also be awarded as part of this competition, depending on how many entries there are. These pieces will not receive a cash prize.


Submission Guidelines:

  1. Any kind of art will be accepted for this competition. Keep in mind that if you make a physical drawing, painting, or sculpture, you will need to photograph or scan it to submit.

  2. All submissions must be entered by December 1st, 2023. No entries will be considered after this time!

  3. Please submit your piece as PDF, JPEG, or other common image file type. Pieces that cannot be opened by the judges on an average computer will not be considered.

  4. To enter your piece into the competition, complete the following steps:

  5. Email your submission to considernatureblog@gmail.com

  6. Post your submission on Instagram or Tumblr, using the hashtag #considerart2023.

  7. When you post your piece, please provide a link to the Consider Nature article that corresponds to the animal represented in your piece. This will help other people find and enjoy Consider Nature.

  8. Please make sure that you follow these submission guidelines, as improperly-submitted pieces may not be considered.


Rules:

  1. Work submitted for this competition must be the artist's own original work.

  2. Art made using AI tools such as DALL-E or Nightcafe will not be considered for this competition.

  3. Pieces submitted must represent one of the animals covered in Consider Nature blogs.

  4. Please do not depict graphic or bloody images in your art. If I have to see one more picture of a dead Vaquita, real or artistically-rendered, I will drive to your house and knock over all of your plants.

  5. Consider Nature has the right to reproduce pieces submitted for this competition on social media or on the Consider Nature website for the purpose of promoting the artist’s work or the Consider Nature blog. To be clear, pieces submitted for this competition will never be merchandised in any way without the artist’s express permission (and artists will be compensated).
