The Patch Project Fan Art Contest

It’s time! In honor of the upcoming summer release of Where Long Shadows End, I declare the Patch Project Fan Art Contest now open!

What is it?

The Patch Project Fan Art Contest is an author-run friendly competition encouraging the creation of art based on or around the Patch Project series! “Art” in the widest sense: everything from visual art, film, found poetry, crochet, comics, songs, to sketches on napkins, whatever medium you thrive in! Let your imagination go wild!

You’re invited to create something based on a character, relationship, or scene from the Patch Project series so far (The Patch Project itself or the sequel A Place That Used to Be) – or, what you’d like to see in book three! Ship your favourite couple, imagine what the S.U.s really look like, or whisk your favourite character away on an adventure of your choosing! 

All skill levels are welcome to enter!

When is it?

The contest will run from Thursday, April 14, 2022 to Thursday, June 30, 2022.

All submissions to the contest must be posted by midnight on June 30, 2022 (EST).

How do I enter?

Once you’ve created your piece of fan art (whatever it may be!), you can post it on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram with the hashtag #ThePatchProjectFanArtContest.

I will leave a like or comment on the pieces that I see – if you’ve posted something and don’t know if I’ve seen it, feel free to tag me: brittniinink on Facebook or brittni_in_ink on Twitter and Instagram.

What can I win?

The fan art that is deemed to be the “best” will win the artist a free signed copy of the third book in the Patch Project series, Where Long Shadows End! Plus bragging rights, of course 🙂

This is meant to be a fun and friendly competition, so the judging process will be casual. I will likely ask the folks at Adventure Worlds Press to help me narrow down the top five (although they don’t know this yet haha!)

Other rules

Only art that is directly based on the Patch Project series will be considered.

Be respectful of the social media platform’s rules you’re posting on. Submissions that are homophobic, transphobic, racist, or sexist will not be considered.

Submission language: English or with an accompanying translation/ subtitles. (This is more for word-based pieces; if your art incorporates words that don’t have to be understood (as in mixed media, for example) no translation is necessary).

Have fun!

Questions?

If you have any questions or thoughts about the contest, feel free to let me know below or message me through my Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!
