The paradox of the portraiture competition
An artistic portrait representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. It shows a person looking directly at the viewer in order to most successfully engage the subject with him. Paradox, a seemingly absurd or self-contradictory statement that is or may be true, an opinion that conflicts with common belief. Strange, out of the ordinary, unusual, striking, eerie, weird, mysterious or fascinating.
The jury has finished to vote with a total of 635 votes. The 3 winners are displayed below. You can review all the images entered to the competition.
The final selection will be done by the 50 members of the jury who will vote and verify that the creation respects the competition theme. Since the members of the jury are located in different parts of the world, there is no physical or virtual concertation organized by Art Limited, each of them submits its choices securely as soon as possible before the vote closes. A juror can't vote for his work. Any cheating, no respect for the theme, call for voting and if we find any behaviour is in any way deceptive, we will disqualify it and mark it fringe selection.
Opening for submissions Tuesday 1 November 2011 at 12:00am.
