Hello guys, CelestialMemories here!


Due to some pressing issues of both EvelynTaliette and myself, September's ToM will not be judged, and to make up for it we will provide better prizes for October's.


Perfection/Imperfection had a very fantastic turnout, and as I tried to judge it, it was hard to decide what beautiful piece should win! You all did an excellent job. This may be overturned sometime in the future, but right now it will just be a ToM with no winners. All people who participated will have an extra 10 tallies added to their count.


Once again, you can view your count here.


Now time for October's Theme of the Month!


"The Sweetest Goodbye"




Now to make this theme very challenging, I will create some rules to both make it fair for literature artists, photographers, and visual artists.


Rules

:pointr: Genre CANNOT be romance/love related.
:pointr: Must be a new deviation, no old deviations.
:pointr: Must state it is for this contest
:pointr: Title cannot have the following words: The, Sweetest, Goodbye, Farewell, Abandon(ment)(ed) [or any variation], Bitter, Untitled
:pointr: Get creative with the idea of "sweetest"
:pointr: For Photos: No Black and White and no flowers (or nature subjects)
:pointr: For Literature: Word Count <700 (if you can please leave a word count in the description) and you cannot repeat the same line [variations allowed]
:pointr: For Drawings: Cannot use ANY primary colors
:pointr: For Photomanipulations: No more than 7 stocks used (background, people, brushes are included)

**Those who do not follow the rules will have their entry disqualified and moved out of the Theme of the Month folder and into the designated others.**


Shouldn't be difficult, right?

This is really interesting. I approached it differently then I anticipated I would, but it was also very fun. Just finished my piece, so wish me luck.

Should I critique pieces from all the placing winners or everyone, including honor mention?
