Have you got an all time favourite song? Get your tools and draw or photograph it for us!
Please read the [#THEME] before you enter :)



Image must be created by Elftowners and posted here by the original artist. Which means, no matter how much you might like a particular image on somebody's house, you are not allowed to add it here. This includes random images from the net too. MAKE YOUR OWN DARN IMAGES, DON'T STEAL THEM AND TRY TO CLAIM THEM AS YOUR OWN! That makes us angry, very angry indeed.


Please put forth your best effort and the best quality, i.e.
- no drawings on lined notebook paper
- no pictures or bad scannings of your drawings
- drawings must be new. That means you may not submit a drawing you have made before this contest or one that was submitted to another contest already.
- drawings must be well shaded and/or coloured. Sketches will not be accepted.

Please put forth your best effort and the best quality, i.e.
- no moved, blurry or pixelated photographs, unless this effect is related to the song (explain!)

To enter this contest you have to submit a new picture combined with a proofpicture taken during the same photoshoot.
This has two reasons:
- The proofphoto shows that the picture is yours.
- Both pictures have to be new, because we want you to make your entries especially for this theme. The picture should clearly show that you thought about the theme and how you want to reflect this.
You can't have done this before the contest, because you didn't know of it then.

The proofphoto must be a picture of the same scenery/environment, but it has to somehow include the songtitle written on a piece of paper.
If you have used photomanipulation you are also required to submit the unedited photograph!


To upload your image full-size you can use the feature 'Upload a folder of images' that is shown on your house.
This feature allows you to upload one, multiple images or zip-files in their original size to a wikipage.
Once you click this link you can follow the instructions. See also uploading images.

Since the winners will be featured on Mainstreet, images that depict graphic violence, pornography or other disturbing actions will not be accepted. Only images that fit the theme will be allowed.

All mediums, except animated GIF's, will be accepted.

The theme of this contest is:
Show us your song!
Show us how you imagine a certain song should be drawn out or pictured.
Your drawing or photograph must show a connection to the title and or lyrics as much as possible. More importantly it should show how you feel about it! :)

You don't lose the right to your art, but by submitting it in these competitions, you allow Elftown to use the art in its wikis.


The deadline of this competition is September 8th, 2007.

We will be picking two (2) images as the winners, one per category.

Ten images, 5 per category, will be picked out by the Council and the Assembly among all those presented and a Mainstreet poll will tell the winner.
Participants will receive an art donor or photographers badge, and winners will receive a coloured version of the same (or a green/coloured Masters of Building badge if they are committed art donors).

2007-07-03 [Sunrose]: Yes :)

2007-07-03 [light.]: Lovely! =D

2007-07-05 [LvSha]: I love this idea! Most of my inspirations are from songs...but to make something clear---
1. it has to be a new one specially for this contest no matter which song inspired me? if there's my favourite song and I had painted for I'll either paint another one or choose another song?
2. that to say, I have to take a photo as a witness to prove that I did this drawing? =)
3. Do we aslo need to submit the lyrics/of the musician and point out where it's taken from?

2007-07-05 [Linderel]: 1. Yes. It must be new, no exceptions.
2. The proofphoto, I believe, applies to photography entries. :)
3. This I'll leave for someone else to answer...

2007-07-05 [Teufelsweib]: 3. you have to write down what the song is called and who made the song, and some people are also submitting a part of the lyric to clearify some things. just don't cram the whole page ;)

2007-07-06 [Eglagrodion]: oh this is a great contest...
i have a question too: each member may submit 2 entries.
is that per category or for the whole contest in common?
so am i allowed to submit 2 entries for drawings AND 2 entries for photography?

2007-07-06 [moira hawthorne]: 2007-07-05 Vampire Akis: Question: It says 2 entries/contestant, right? Does it mean 2 drawings and 2 pics? No, eh?

2007-07-05 Sunrose: 2 Entries total :)

2007-07-07 [LvSha]: Oh thanks for your answers guys =B

2007-07-07 [Eglagrodion]: ok ty. then I can start now :)

2007-07-07 [Sunrose]: [LvSha]: You don't have to choose a new song, but you can't submit the painting you did of it before :)

2007-07-07 [Eglagrodion]: oeh i already got a nice idea for a song from Dream theater

2007-07-22 [Rat Hacker]: Are you allowed to manipulate your photo?

2007-07-22 [Sunrose]: Please read the rules, the answer is right there ;)

2007-07-22 [Rat Hacker]: Oh okay thanks I think I missed that when I first read it. But the song title thing on the paper were you talking about?

2007-07-22 [Sunrose]: Sorry, could you rephrase the question? I don't really understand what you're asking..

2007-07-22 [Rat Hacker]: When you said this "but it has to somehow include the songtitle written on a piece of paper." what exactly did you mean? Sorry if I am being dense or lack of understanding and am annoying.

2007-07-22 [light.]: You need to take a photo proof picture, with you (or your subject, whatever) holding a piece of paper with your chosen song title written on it. =3

2007-07-22 [Rat Hacker]: Oh okay thanks.

2007-07-22 [light.]: No problem.

2007-07-25 [Rat Hacker]: I have yet another question. If I say take a screen capture of the Google start page could I use that and some other pictures that I take. the only one that I thought would be questionable is the Google one. So I wanted to ask you just to make sure it was okay or not.

2007-07-25 [light.]: ..I'm pretty sure Google is copyrighted.
