Introduction

YICCA is holding it's first international open contest as an additional option to it's previous editions. We come to that idea in a search of development and improvement of the art stage we offer. More opportunities are to be faced at YICCA open contest, yet the challenge remains even greater. This time the jurors will not be pundits, specially selected for the contest. The juror will be the public, the vast web of social network users. Their personal preferences and understanding of art is what will guide them through the process of making the final decision - which two artist will automatically go to YICCA 2013 exhibition. The chance for final exhibition of the artwork raises in proportion with the appraisement of this work, expressed through the “likes” you have collected.

How it works

To participate in YICCA Open Contest you just need to follow our ground rules.

First, you have to be subscribed to YICCA community on www.yicca.org. By clicking on “register” button, fill out the form and proceed.
Create your own profile and upload your artworks. There is no limitation for uploaded images of artworks on your YICCA profile.

Second, to submit an artwork (already inside the community) to the contest, click "add to contest" button placed in the upper right area inside the chosen artworks page. Be aware, that for the contest you can submit ONLY ONE artwork. Also, you CAN NOT change, improve, resize etc. that artwork image.

The “Voting”

This time we decided to shake up a bit the standard format of YICCA and think out of the box. We left the decision making in the hands of the public. Anyone can vote for the artwork they liked the most by clicking on the “like” button, “boosting up” their favorite artist's work. More likes mean better chance to win.
For voting you need to have a facebook profile since liking and sharing of the artworks are through facebook social network.
For participating in the contest and submitting an artwork you do not need to have a facebook profile, but for voting-you do need. Also, to spread the word and compete successfully with other artist you better share your piece of art among your facebook friends to collect more likes.

Second chance

YICCA Open Contest is an additional option of YICCA 2013. If your artwork did not collect the most “likes” and it did not win the Open Contest, you still can take part of YICCA 2013.
