(you have less than a week…)
If you are passionate about graphic design and manipulating photos, then you have landed on the right spot! “The Fairytale castle” photomontage contest is still open and you still have the chance to win €700, so read the article below, and then head to your favorite photo editor!
Back in 1996, the Bulgarian entrepreneur Georgi Tumpalov began working on an ambitious project that was also his childhood dream. Tumpalov wanted to build a castle—like those in the fairytales—with huge brick walls, several turrets, and a lake nearby. And after many years of hard work, the dream became a reality, and now Tumpalov is the owner of the most famous and magnificent castle in Bulgaria—In Love with the Wind.
The castle is situated over the territory of Ravadinovo—a small and beautiful village at the seaside of Bulgaria. Looked from above, the castle has the shape of a cross, and its walls change their color during the different parts of the day, due to the thousands of tiny diamonds they contain. As you will see for yourself, In Love with the Wind has an astonishing structure, and it’s definitely a place you should visit in your lifetime!
After building his own castle, Tumpalov’s next goal is to popularize it. That’s why he is organizing a contest at VOUBS for the best photomontage involving the castle. The awards for the top 3 submissions are: €700 for the 1st place, €400 for the 2nd, and €300 for the 3rd. You will also be supplied with photos of the castle that you must use in your project.
Sounds interesting, right? Here are some quick tips that might help when working on your photomontage:
1. Be creative. Try to come up something unique and original, and don’t be afraid to go outside the box. At the end of the day, creativity is what differs the true artist from the amateur.
2. Show us the best you can. Applying some filters and effects and sending us the final result is not the way you can end up in the top 3. Besides creativity, the jury wants to see some real talent and skills.
3. Don’t overdo it. Yes, the jury wants to see how skillful you are, but don’t go too far with the brush and the effects. Simple and original idea, executed in a brilliant—that’s what might impress the jury.
4. Know your competition. Taking part just before the final round has its pros. If you want to be ahead of the other contestants, just check their submissions before you start working on your own, but don’t replicate their ideas.
The registration closes on April 26. You have less than a week to create a stunning photomontage and grab the award of €700!
