We have 11 great photos from talented artists in the finalists pool living large (er, tiny)! Click through to the lightbox to see the names of the photographers tagged in the photos. photos are cropped for the purpose of the mosaic – you can view the originals in the events linked above)
Who will be chosen as the 4 winners for June? We’ll announce the winners soon! Stay tuned…
The photos attached to this post were considered finalist contenders but were not eligible to win prizes because either they were created by ASP Community moderators or these photographers have won sometime in the past 6 months or 3 times total already. However, because these photos would go into the Finalists pool otherwise, I wanted them to get recognition, and so these are our Honorable Mentions. Well done! (photos are cropped for the purpose of the mosaic – you can view the originals in the event linked above)
Stay tuned to see who the fantastic finalists are – we’ll announce them soon!
The April Self Portrait Challenge is “Imitate Art.” What this means is that you find and choose a classic or contemporary painting or iconic photo/image (art) to imitate with a self portrait. You’ll need to be able to provide a link to the original and attribute the artist/creator. Please add the link and attribution in the caption of your submission.
For detailed rules and to enter, please click here. (Make sure you click “read more” under “Details” to see all information.)
Remember that imitation does not have to = perfect replication. You can put your spin on things, get as close as possible, conceptualize a bit differently than the original, etc. Have fun looking through art online, selecting a piece or two to try and then experiencing the glory of trial and error. This is guaranteed to be fun as well as a great learning experience!
Images like this are somewhat difficult to find, but we have gathered a small handful into a gallery: https://goo.gl/ipcNbv
