The “What’s In A Name Challenge” opened for voting yesterday on the EBSQ Forum. Voting is open through Saturday, November 22. What is the “What’s In A Name Challenge“? I am glad that you asked. I have the particulars right here:
What’s in a name, or Avatar depiction challenge!!
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about what kind of pic would fit my username, “espressojoe”, and notice the different images that come to mind when I see other people’s usernames.
With this in mind, I propose a challenge of art created around your username (handle)!! The more creative the better!!!!
Even if you don’t have a “creative” username, you can still participate, just stretch it a little. If I used my name, Joseph Callahan for a handle, I could go look up the “meanings” of my names and fly with that:
Joseph means: He will enlarge…. (ok, with how my bathroom scale is reading, I guess I’m living up to that…. NOT going to be inspired by the Joseph or the Joe half of my username!)
Callahan means: Lover of Churches or Bright Headed.
Of course, my username is espressojoe, not Joseph Callahan Art, so Ill be using espressojoe to come up with a example. This was just to show that even if your user name is a variant of your name, you can still get creative and enter!!!
Any media art allowed!
Art should be inspired by some part of your username, with a brief description of how its inspired if it’s not immediately obvious.
Art does NOT have to become your avatar, so don’t worry about having to change your avatar.
Entries CAN NOT be something you have ALREADY used as an avatar! Let’s get some fresh stuff!!
Whatever media, whatever form, HAVE FUN!!!! (Isn’t that one of the most important reasons we do these?)
I’ll open a thread for submissions with the first piece, my “example” piece, on November 1st and submissions will be open until Midnight November 15th.
I’ll then ask EVERYONE who entered to vote for their favorite submission, either by PM or have admin tag a poll to the top of the post. Only request is that you DO NOT vote for your own piece! Only vote for your favorite submission by someone else. This should help keep it interesting!!
As this challenge is NOT media specific, I am posting it only in the Challenge Central forum.
This challenge was posed by Joseph Callahan and ten people took him up on it. They need your vote, so go to the EBSQ Forum and vote! Of course all the entries are right there for you to peruse before you cast vote but you can see one or two of the entries right here until voting closes.
