Welcome to A Poet's Vision, a visual poetry contest!
This is for those of you who like the idea of combining your visual art with your verbal one. What we're looking for is not just the usual text, but a representation of your poetry as a vital part of a visual piece. Do you think you're up for the challenge?

1. Drawings, paintings and photomanipulations are all accepted. Hell, construct a collage if you can make it work.
2. All work must be your own. If you use stock or references, please build a separate wiki-page where you list the credit and link it here. Collaborative pieces are allowed.
3. All participants may enter up to two (2) pieces.
There will be two winners: one by public poll, another a host's favourite. Both will receive a badge and, if desired, a piece of writing from a prompt of their choosing.
The deadline of this contest is 8th October, 2011.

Closed! Please vote at poetsvisionpoll.

Please post your submissions underneath the horizontal ruler, using the <img300:> tag. Mark your entry number, your username, and title (if any).
Our example entry was kindly provided by [Chimes].

2011-01-15 [Alexi Ice]: (Was that a fired up quote, kind of. lol.)

2011-01-15 [Captain Rachel Black]: This whole <img:300> thing just doesn't work out for me for some reason @_@

2011-01-15 [Linderel]: That's because I was st00pid and gave the wrong instructions :D The number is on the other side of the colon.

2011-01-15 [Captain Rachel Black]: gotcha XD

2011-01-16 [dancingsheep]: You. Guys. Are. Awesome. Just so you know. Rach, Laura, you're both getting your Christmas gifts in the mail sometime next week, I believe. Belated, I know. Just thought I'd mention.

2011-01-16 [Captain Rachel Black]: D'AWWWW (huggles Sheepie)

2011-01-16 [Akayume]: X3 I am still at a standstill on this. :( I can't think of what to do. >.<

2011-01-16 [Linderel]: You've got a few months to figure it out, I'm sure you'll come up with something. :P

2011-01-20 [Akayume]: One can only hope. :p

2011-01-29 [Chimes]: Methinks me has two ideas...

2011-01-29 [Alexi Ice]: So pretty!

2011-02-26 [Akayume]: TWO ideas? :O Whoa Chimes, you are quite the dangerous entrant. (;

2011-02-27 [Linderel]: The more entries you give me, the happier I am! :D

On a side note, I know I'm the one who made that banner so I'm being kind of conceited but... damn it's pretty.

2011-02-27 [Akayume]: I agree! It is pretty. (: As long as you don't turn into one of those creepy men with chest hair and gold necklaces who go to bars and hit on girls half their age, we'll be good. :P

2011-03-22 [Akayume]: I still need to enter this. ;___;

2011-03-22 [Chimes]: Me too. :P

2011-03-22 [Akayume]: Without the use of my camera I feel pretty lame. XD

2011-03-22 [Chimes]: Hmm. You made some pretty awesome digital stuff recently, mebbe do it like that?

2011-03-22 [Akayume]: Mebbe. :P

And it was not awesome! You hush. XP

2011-04-06 [Alexi Ice]: Ah! I looovvveeee all these entries! O.o

2011-04-07 [Skydancer]: hmmmm.

2011-04-07 [Akayume]: DX I'm at such a standstill...

2011-04-11 [Linderel]: Wheeeee new entry yay!

2011-04-11 [Akayume]: Lin! I think you'd be really good at this game:

2011-05-04 [Akayume]: Bug me to enter this. >.> I has an idea.

2011-05-04 [Linderel]: *throws ladybugs at you*

2011-05-04 [Akayume]: OUAH!! e.O *is ladybugged*

2011-05-26 [Karithina]: I haven't written any poetry since early high school - it is terrifying (and fun) to start again! Hopefully I'm not toeing the line between free verse and prose too much there :S

2011-05-26 [Linderel]: Looks good. :3

2011-05-26 [Akayume]: I love the new entry!!! <3

2011-05-26 [Karithina]: Thank-you both :D <33

2011-05-31 [Linderel]: I'll be extending the deadline by a month or two as I hope to get a few more entries. Any preferences?

2011-05-31 [Akayume]: Keep it open past July! o____O I might enter... Eventually..

2011-06-14 [Linderel]: *prod prod*

2011-06-14 [Karithina]: I want to see more of these, everyone planning on entering, should! *nudge*[Akayume]*nudge*

2011-06-14 [Linderel]: Emu, too!

2011-06-14 [nehirwen]: Too bad I don't write poetry. (and if I do it's pretty much at a Vogon level)
Maybe I should draw a Vogon reciting my poetry. xD

2011-06-14 [Karithina]: I don't write poetry either, so don't let it stop you! I doubt anyone on Earth is quite so bad at writing poetry as a Vogon, but you can always prove me right or wrong :D

2011-06-14 [nehirwen]: I'll give it a try. ;)

2011-06-14 [Akayume]: I knowwww. :P I'm just laaaaazy.

2011-06-14 [Karithina]: Find something more important to do, something you really really neeeeed to do - and do this instead. Works every time for me :P

2011-06-14 [Linderel]: Also: It would make a Lami happy.

2011-06-14 [Akayume]: This is true. (: Although I also can't remember my previous idea... o.o Oh wells. I'll come up with a new one. :D

2011-07-16 [Linderel]: *snaps whip*

2011-08-08 [Linderel]: In a completely unsurprising move I am extending the deadline again. I just have no motivation at the moment, plus I wouldn't be able to deal with closing anyhow because I'll be largely AFI 'til the end of the week.

2011-08-11 [Akayume]: :O

2011-08-13 [Linderel]: ENTER. NAO.

2011-08-15 [Akayume]: I has no art skills. XP

2011-08-15 [Captain Rachel Black]:


2011-08-15 [Akayume]: C'est vrai! :P

2011-08-15 [Akayume]: I might do something lazy. I just had an idea. We shall see.

2011-08-15 [Chimes]: I has the picture I want to use but not the words XD

2011-10-09 [Linderel]: I am teh disappoint. :(

2011-11-10 [Linderel]: Please to plug the poll so that we'll get this wrapped up as soon as possible. :3 (I know I took ridiculously long in getting around to setting up the poll, but, y'know. Life.)
