On #KirstieThursday on April 27, Beth’s winning entry was a work of photo edit art, but not all voters were aware that it was. Its presence raised the question of whether photo edit art should continue to run alongside original art, or separately. Most who responded were in favor of running photo edit art separately from original art. As such, a new rule has been added:
No photo edit art or edits of other people’s art, unless specifically requested for a special event. A valid art entry may be digital, traditional, or a hybrid, but should be created from scratch by the artist who submits it.
The frequency of photo edit contests will depend on how popular they are when they run.
