MIA Contest 2020

Welcome to the third Music Inspired Art Contest! 


The first one was in 2015, the second in 2019. The Idea is to make an illustration or GIF inspired by a song from the audio portal. I would like to make this an annual thing, and to make it stick I think it would be best to celebrate it at the same time every year, from July 1st to August 31st, after the Art Inspired Music Contest. To encourage participation, we're offering MONEY, yeah that's right you can win some money.

The judges ( @Miroko , @sabtastic and I) will take into consideration the quality of the piece, originality and how well it compliments the song. Everyone is encouraged to take part in the contest, and I'm looking forward to looking at all the entries!


Prizes:


The boyz and I decided to donate most of our winnings from our Musk Jam cartoon for the contest


You can make a donation and PM @TomFulp to be added here as a prize sponsor.


1st $75 US and Interview with @theinterviewer

2nd $75 US

3rd $75 US

4th $30 US

5th $30 US

6th $30 US


Rules:


1. Your entry must be an original piece, you can enter as many as you want, but only one prize per person.


2. Music must be an original piece from the audio portal by another artist(s).


3. You must include the full URL of the song that you're using as inspiration from the audio portal on a single line at the top of the description of your piece.


4. No A rated content.


5. You must post your entry on the art portal and tag it MIA2020 before August 31, 11:59 PST. It can be an illustration or a GIF.


Looking forward to seeing your work!

You're doing MIA this year? Dude...i love you. It makes me happy this is still a thing, a good spinoff contest. Thank you so much! :) I never imagined when I made AIM that it would start a secondary contest like this, but I figured someone might have the idea, but then it's been a thing 3 times now, that's crazy, and awesome. I love you guys.


PS: I still wear your shirt you made for me, but im sad it's not available anymore because it's a really awesome shirt. You should def make more shirts. It would be cool if the winners had their own shirts made with their art haha. I wish you guys the best!

Oops, that's meant to say: "don't need money for me, ha!" That was a mistake.

I'm not really known for digital art under either this account or my main one, but I might consider 3D Modelling something together for this if I get some spare time!

This sounds WONDERFUL! I will make something for this too! But, I don't wanna get paid or interviewed! (Well, I don't think I will be in the first 6 lol) Can you do something for that, like Tom in NeoGeoJam?
