Art Competition Themes
« on: 12 April, 2017, 12:48:44 am »
Just wondered if it was possible to compile a list of past themes in one easy-to-access place so we can avoid repetition. The contest has been running for a while now and many contributors have come to it at a later stage - I myself began submitting during The Dark Judges theme.
I figured it would be handy in deciding on future themes - I've suggested a few in the past that were too similar to previous ones. :)

Wow, that's one helluva list when you see it all together! I hadn't realised there had been THAT many themes...!
Thanks so much for compiling them in one place, CFM :)

And alphabetical, rather than chronological, order. Impressive.

(FYI: That's a list of all of themes since I took over in 2011 - I don't have a list of what was covered before then!)

My list game is strong ;)

The comp's been going since about 2006 or 2007, so I wouldn't stress hugely about repeating a theme - it's almost a certainty by this point!

It's been running since before 2011?? I had no idea it had been going for that long!

Looking through the list there's quite a few themes I wish I had been around for...

UPDATE: a pre-2011 list has just appeared since I tried to post the above.... 2009?! This competition is 8 years old?? Wow...

Again, lots of themes I would've loved to have taken part in. Guess there's no chance of a second go for us more recent contributors...? ;)

I think I can guess the answer to that one....

Oops, 2008, not 2009... so that's nearly TEN years! Maybe by celebration next year, you can offer the chance to return to past themes...? ;)

Just realised how presumptuous that may have sounded - that wasn't my intention.
Carry on, as you were, nothing to see here.

TAXI..!!

Well, you could always win an art comp and suggest "Crisis on Infinite Art Comps" as a theme and see what CFM says… :-)

Hello? Is this thing on? It's actually been going since 2006 or 2007.

Yup. The Mighty Amstor Computer ran it for at least a couple of years before I picked it up, likewise for a couple of years, since when it's been in the capable paws of CFM.
