    The terms and conditions are very strict. I will have to come up with something great and original before I enter.

    just a little reminder for those entering in this contest : the deadline is the 5th not the 10th so you all got 4 days left to enter

    I think the concept of fine art may even confuse the judges LOL, fine art has nothing really to do with replication it is about aesthetic beauty, as mark mentions but that's so broad and at times ill defined. (its more about using art elements such as line or color to communicate a feeling or emotional response) Realism which is what many do here is defined as fine art for some but its not really fine art for others as in many cases it illicits no emotional response besides jeez that looks real...Fine art for me is about representing that beauty, conveying something about the scene your painting through that use of the art elements, not replicating it if that makes sense..If indeed most airbrushing is considered fine art I'm surprised we don't see more of it hanging in the louvre. There is though those within Airbrushing that do practice fine arts so not bashing the AB or realism for that case. Don't believe me? LOL Thats fair it is a personal description but type in "Fine Art" into say a Google image search and perhaps then you'll see what I mean by the majority of works shown under that banner, many of which I still wouldn't call fine art LOL..What you won't see is much high/photo realism unless wrongly titled or meta'd as that's a different art category to what fine art is, but some no doubt will disagree :)..Will be interesting to see what the judges pick :)

    PS Ronald not sure but on the site and the poster for it it says the deadlines the 10th..Good luck to all those entering.

    the dead line has been changed a while ago due to a airbrush show on the 8 and 9th and they want to announce the winner on that show
