See Aggie’s Limited Edition Photo Art

Join Aggie on her Virtual Photo Shoots

Be sure to also enter sister contest, our art Raffle,
“Become an Art Collector for Under $5.00”

A picture is worth a thousand words, as they say, and that is your assignment. Well, more accurately, 500 — 600 words.

Write about the above photo art, Valle Pintado by Aggie Villanueva. Study the image, Valle Pintado means painted valley, and then write a story that this photo art inspires. You don’t have to write only fiction. Enter an essay if that’s what this image inspires in you. (No poetry please until we have poetry judges.)

Enter the sister art raffle here to win
limited edition print of Valle Pintado for yourself.

The Winner:
The winner gains triple exposure on Aggie Villanueva’s three sites, and a post on the blogs of our prestigious panel of judges.

Plus, and this is a huge plus; every one of our contest supporters (and this list is constantly growing) will also post your winning entry. See our sponsor list below. So, if this image inspires your muse, go for it. You’ll be read by thousands.


Rules:
This contest is open only to unpublished and amateur writers, or those who have been published less than 7 times in the past two years. Not qualified to enter if you have books published, either by traditional publishers or self published.

Study this image, “Valle Pintado”, which means painted valley, then write a story the photo art inspires. You don’t have to write only fiction. Enter an essay if that’s what this image inspires in you. (No poetry, please. We hope to have some poetry judges in the near future)

Deadline for the Valle Pintado Writing Contest is December 15, 2009. The winning entry will receive two critique statements from each judge; what that judge likes about your entry and what could be improved. See The Fine Print below.

Email your entry to Aggie at the Cabin. Be sure to type “Valle Pintado Writing Contest” in the subject line.

Include with your entry a short bio and attach your photo.

Include all links you want posted with your winning entry.

Include your telephone number if you want to be notified of a win by phone as well as by email. If you do not send you phone number, you will only be notified by email.

Winning entries will be posted at all participating sites as near as possible to the 25th of each month.

You must respond within 5 days of the date on your winning email announcement. If you do not reply to your winning email announcement within that time limit, your prize will be assigned to the second place entrant.

The Fine Print: The judges’ critiques are confined to short comments; no in depth critique/editing. Entrants will be automatically added to the Visual Arts Junction newsletter. You many unsubscribe at any time. All rights to the Valle Pintado image remain with the creator, Aggie Villanueva.
