LeftHandedArtists Contest: THINK DIFFERENT!

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 8, 2013, 3:58 AM
the home of left-handed artists on deviantART


Hey our lefty and ambidextrous members, but also all others who are not „from the other side“, we have something to announce!


:bulletblue: :bulletorange: :bulletblue: :bulletorange: :bulletblue: :bulletorange: :bulletblue: :bulletorange: EDIT: STILL TWO WEEKS TO GO! LET THE ENTRIES ROLL!!!! :bulletblue: :bulletorange: :bulletblue: :bulletorange: :bulletblue: :bulletorange: :bulletblue: :bulletorange:



As all of you should know, August 13th is a very special day for lefties everywhere! It is Left Handers’ Day – a day where we can all get together freely and talk about our scissor preferences, smudged writing and how many times we’ve heard: “Hey! Are you left-handed?”.

Of course, we can do that any day. But on the 13th of August we have an awesome excuse. And once again, we’re providing you with the perfect excuse to put on that thinking cap and grab your art supplies to create something awesome for the LHA 2013 contest!

Lefties are different, they think with the „wrong side of the brain“ (which, funny enough is the RIGHT brain side! Think about it …). They act different. They are clumsy with normal everyday-stuff if they have to use special right-hander tools.
Lefties are not „normal“. They make everything „the other way round“. They are different to other people who use the right hand.


That is what our theme this year should be about: About being different, acting different, thinking different.
Everybody tells us, we are different – let’s proof them right! :D The theme this year – WHICH IS OPEN FOR EVERYBODY, NOT ONLY MEMBERS OF THIS GROUP, AND NOT ONLY LEFTIES! – is called




:star: :star: :star: Think different! :star: :star: :star:


This is not limited to only Left-handedness but to everything YOU CAN IMAGINE! It is a totally free theme. :)

Yes, I think this should go to artisan crafts than. But as you have to send us a message with the link to the submission and we look over it before putting it into the contest folder, it does not really matter. I will than put it in the folder where I think it belongs to. :)
Anyway: If I only have one submission in the artisan crafts folder I have to look how to do it with the prizes. Maybe there would not be given all prizes than (like the special Winners Package from #AnotherContestGroup), but there will be some honorable prizes for taking part at least. I hope you can understand that. :heart:

If I have already submitted something to one category, am I allowed to submit something in another?

We sadly state in our rules that we can only accept ONE entry overall – so sadly you cannot submit into another category.
But what you could do is – if you think your new work is better – that you inform us that you want the other entry removed and instead of the first one we could submit your new work.
We would delete your former work out of the contest entries and you will take part with your new entry. Would this be a deal?

OOh! Ooh! Awesome! I'm left-handed. Anyway, I'm totally entering...with a lit piece. I can't draw. Maybe it's the whole holding the pencil with the wrong hand, thereby smudging everything I do on a page. Or maybe I'm just not meant to draw. :) Anyway, awesome idea, and I'm totally in! :iconrainbowsqueeplz:

Confused or overwhelmed? XD
As I mentioned above the theme is totally free and not sticky to lefthandedness alone. So you can be totally wild with it. ;)
Though I understand that it is a very broad theme and it is not easy to find a solution to it.

If you have any more questions do not hesitate to ask. ^^
