There are more ways to show Pentatonix some art love than just by drawing their pretty faces. We’re devoting a week to adding art to the book of Pentatonix’s favorite people, places, and things. Here are some ground rules, and some ideas of what to draw.
- Favorites Week will accept many winners, as we did with Bandwagon Week: everything passing the qualifying vote count–only 15 votes required this week–may join the book, as long as entry counts are matched member for member. Same rules apply for determining entry priority: top-voted entry first, then darkhorses before champions, etc.
- We welcome your art, even if someone in PTX has already seen it. Our usual contest rule concerning #SeenByPTX art doesn’t apply.
- Portraits of PTX members by themselves will not be accepted. Each entry must feature a favorite person, place, and/or thing of the target PTX member.
- The PTX member does not need to be shown. Their favorite is mandatory, but the member himself/herself is optional. To clear up ambiguity, please use the hashtag for the target voting day, or mention the PTX member you made the art for.
- #FanArtFriday requirements are relaxed. Logo-inspired art and straightforward group shots of all five PTX members are accepted this week as they are any week. Also accepted: any art that contains at least 3 PTX members, and/or someone who works closely with Pentatonix on a regular basis, and/or any person, place, or thing loved by all members of Pentatonix.
Here are a few ideas for each of the contest days. These are suggestions; your entries are not limited to these topics.
- On #FavoritesWeek, we love group portraits. Any art of 2 or more PTX members together, or at least one PTX member with anyone, whether friend, family member, fan, or fictional character!
- On #FavoritesWeek, we love works of art that aren’t portraits at all! Draw any place or thing that you think someone in Pentatonix would love. Word art is also welcome.
- Word art with Pentatonix song lyrics, or any sort of abstract or representational art that references Pentatonix song lyrics
- scenes of places where Pentatonix has shot music videos, or that reference their adventures on tour. (e.g. a Mario Kart track as a nod to their recent kart racing fun in Japan)
- Any PTX staff member or friend to everyone in Pentatonix: e.g. Ben Bram, Esther Koop, Lipstick Nick, Mario José…we could go on.
- Any of Avi’s famous favorite things: dragons (also welcome on #DragonTuesday), castles, barbecue, bass notes…
- Landscapes! Avi loves nature, especially mountains and forests. And cabins.
- Draw little details in nature: a bird, a flower, whatever inspires you.
- Avi’s siblings or parents. Group shots are encouraged this week; individual portraits are also fine.
- Avi’s associates at Endeavor Studios and/or members of his folk band.
- Anything that celebrates A Cappella Academy.
- A banjitar, or a little guitars. In his free space. Or that really cool resonator guitar he got for his birthday.
- Word art with lyrics from any of Avi’s songs, or any sort of art that references these lyrics.
- Superfruit fan art! Please please send it! We’ll distribute it evenly between #ScottSunday and #MitchMonday.
- Beyoncé. Send Scott ALL your Beyoncé fan art. He’ll love it.
- Wyatt. (Please don’t bug Scott and Mitch about where Wyatt is, but I’m sure they love Wyatt and have placed him in caring hands, and would happily receive Wyatt fan art.)
- Scott’s parents.
- Word art for any song lyrics that Scott is known for writing or singing.
- A lot of the same things as for #ScottSunday: Superfruit, Wyatt, Iceland, etc.
- All things Balenciaga.
- Mike Grassi.

- Word art of any song lyrics famously sung by Mitch.
- Kevin’s cello.
- Kevin with family members or friends: parents, sisters, honorary brother Avi, etc.
- Landscapes or cityscapes: places close to Kevin’s heart include his hometown of Owensboro, Kentucky; as well as China, where he studied for an extended time.
- Chicken noodle soup!
- Word art with any motivational quotes, song lyrics, or Bible verses that you think Kevin would like.
- Family: Kirstin’s mom. Her fiancé, Jeremy. Her furbabies, Olaf and Pascal.
- Landscapes or cityscapse: Texas, the trio’s home state; Paris, where Jeremy proposed; Mexico, where they went on vacation; anywhere that you know to be special to Kirstin.
- The trio. Or Kirstin with any PTX member, fan, or anyone.
- Kirstin cosplaying one of her favorite fictional characters.
