      This task will require creativity, skill, imagination and a video recording device of some kind.

      The objective of this challenge is for the brave artists among you to create and record a short video ( under five minutes) that will demonstrate a few informative tips and methods for creating a beautiful Paint-your-own piece. These will be posted on Youtube and here, on our forum.

      You may wish to showcase your painting skills and techniques, give advice on paints and tools, show how to set up a spiritually fulfilling work area, or provide any helpful knowledge on the subject you wish to share with your fellow artists.

      No purchase is necessary to enter. We will welcome videos demonstrating whatever pearls you have to give -if it can be applied to creating a paint-your-own piece.

      All of you may vote to choose the three winning videos. The three prizes are fine, purebred dragons.

      My L’eagles will soon provide information about dates, times, file formats and other specifics, as well as the dry words of the legal details.

      You may email me with questions: Ayonah@windstoneeditions.com

          L’eagles have tails, not hats.

            I have a hat. I’m keeping it! You can’t take it away!

            I never said I didn’t have a tail too. πŸ˜›

            Wait – unless I don’t have a head?!? That’s a scary thought!

                  So….since this is the Tanglian wilderness does our video have to be in chinese? :innocent: lol

                    What about those of us who aren’t big PYO painters?

                    Will the video be judged on the quality and asthetic of the video its self or the information in the video?

                    In other words, does it give one an advantage if you know how to do video editing and special effects?

                      I wish I had something to record a five minute video with…

                      Oh well, I look forward to see some of the techniques that will be used in these videos.

                        The videos will be voted on by the forum members. Only in the event of a tie will the staff be making the judgements.

                        So, I imagine video editing would probably give an advantage, but hopefully people will be voting mostly on the information offered. πŸ™‚

                          I wish I did PYO pieces now! Oh well, hopefully there is a contest later I could enter. I’m excited to see the entries though!

                            Oh, and a general question, if someone didn’t have an actual video camera, could they still make a video by using text slides and photos? If they edited photos and text together it could still be informative but wouldn’t include actual video footage… that way people with no video camera could still enter.

                              1. I wasn’t planning to enter as I don’t think I’m really qualified for this.

                              2. Notwithstanting my time away, I’ve been a member and collector for a long time and I’m pretty sure that my posting history can show that I’m not the kind to make a scene, throw a tantrum or get angry easily.

                              3. I want to believe that there has to be a very good reason for that exclusion.

                              However, at the moment I must say that I am more angry and offended than I have ever been reading this forum!

                                  Unfortunately, promotion laws in Quebec require that you provide all contest items in French. Otherwise it is a violation of Canadian promotional law. The only way to NOT have to translate into French is if you exclude Quebec from the promotion. πŸ™

                                  You also have to place a deposit in the value of the prize with the government, and a few other things that are challenging if you don’t have a legal person in Quebec to work with.

                                  So, while we would LOVE to be able to offer the promotion in Quebec, we cannot legally do so until such a time as we are able to support the French language as well as English. πŸ™
