[Poll] Monthly Art Contest participation 🧑‍🎨

Hi all

Following this topic Interesting idea for competitions? I’m wondering why number of participant to Monthly Art Contest is so low :frowning:

So here are some polls to try to understand why, and maybe found a solution to get something more dynamic and get more participation from everyone (proposed polls maybe not the best polls, but I don’t want to make a poll to determinate which polls to poll :crazy_face:)

Notes

  • All polls are anonymous
  • All polls will end at the end of October (I think discussion about results can start when polls are closed)

Contest

Starting poll with basics

Did you already entered the Monthly Art Contest before? (Huion+Krita contest doesn’t count here)

0 voters

Frequency

Frequency for Monthly Art Contest is monthly :slight_smile:
Maybe it’s the right frequency, maybe not.

What do you think?
  • One per month is perfect
  • One per bimester would be better
  • One per quarter would be better
  • One per semester would be better
  • One per year would be better
  • I don’t know / I don’t care

Duration

Currently, participant have one month to paint and submit their artwork; available time is currenlty relative to frequency.
Maybe one month is too long, or too short

Allowed time to realize artwork could be independent than frequency

Example

  • For a monthly art contest, have 2 months to realize artwork:
    – January+February for February contest
    – February+March for March contest
What do you think?
  • One month is too long
  • One month is enough
  • One month is not enough
  • I don’t know / I don’t care

Subject

Currently most of Monthly Art Contests are based on a theme, chosen by winner of previous contest

What do you think?
  • Themes are usually not interesting, we must found another method to determinate next contest theme
    a poll, a random draw, a developer choice, season choice, …
  • Theme based contests only is not interesting, I would also like to see constraint based contest (technical process, colors limited, canvas size, …)
    Alternate theme/constraint contest
  • Theme based contests only is not interesting, I would also like to see constraint based contest (technical process, colors limited, canvas size, …)
    Both theme/constraint contest at the time (2 different contests)
  • I don’t know / I don’t care

Prize
