Planetary Mythology Photomanipulation Competition!

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 1, 2013, 11:56 AM

Mythology of the Planets



Welcome to the latest "dark" photomanipulation contest, supported by Community Relations here on deviantART. This contest will challenge you to think outside of the box, for you will have to not only create something, but you will need to do a bit of research and think about why you are creating it. :XD: Are you ready for a competition that is out of this world?

Before we go any further, let me clarify that PLUTO COUNTS!


What do I have to do?


Choose one of the planets (or Pluto) in our solar system, listed below. Moons or suns can be a part of the larger picture, but they do not count as your god/goddess. 

Your job is to create a PHOTOMANIPULATION in which you show a myth around a planetary ruler (that is, the god or goddess after which the planets were named). 

The gods/goddesses can be Greek, Roman, or other.... but they must be planetary rulers.

Here are the planets and their (Greek) influences; again, it's fine to use Roman or something else:


Mercury = Hermes, messenger god
Venus = Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty
Earth = Terra, goddess of land
Mars = Ares, god of war
Jupiter = Zeus, ruler of the gods
Saturn = Cronus, god of time
Uranus = Uranus, god of the sky
Neptune = Poseidon, god of the sea
Pluto = Hades, god of death and the underworld


If you're like me, you're totally confused right now. Take a moment to Google the stories about whatever planetary ruler seems most interesting to you. :heart:


Where do I submit it?


We will create a "Planetary Mythology" contest at CRPhotomanipulation.


Other rules


:bulletblack: Must be a photomanipulation-- e.g. use 2 or more sources put together to make something new. Mixed Media will be accepted if it involves manipulated photographs.

:bulletblack: Credit your sources, and only use legitimate sources. NO PREMADES OR CUT-OUT STOCK WILL BE ACCEPTED UNLESS IT EXPLICITLY STATES THAT THE ORIGINAL PHOTO(S) BELONG TO THE STOCK PROVIDER. 

:bulletblack: Be creative.

:bulletblack: Do your own work.

:bulletblack: You can submit up to 2 entries, but you can only win once. 

:bulletblack: DEADLINE: OCTOBER 15th, 2013, 11:59 PM PACIFIC TIME
