Well! To celebrate Pop Princess' five year anniversary and our 2K followers (what! thank you so much, everyone!!)...... We will be hosting another contest to find an illustrator to join Flor and I in creating beautiful, elegant, or cute fabric prints for the brand! We have been chatting and think it might be nice to have a new addition (perhaps two even!) to the royal family.
Our illustrator and now good friend, Flor (Coffeshere) was the first illustrator to be selected as a semi finalist and won the contest by a landslide of votes back in 2013 with her beautiful print: Starry Garden.
She has since regaled us with another beauty this last year, and brought about the absolutely stunning elegance that is, Bright Star.
Have you ever dreamed of seeing your illustrations become a reality? Have you ever wanted to see your artwork transformed into beautiful dresses? Do you have what it takes to rise through the ranks to join Pop Princess royalty and stand victorious as the new addition to the brand as Court Illustrator?
If so, we would love for you to apply to be a part of the Pop Princess Illustrator Contest 2015! Flor and I are greatly looking forward to seeing all the talented artists and illustrators out there who apply!
All styles are welcome to apply! We are looking for someone that can bring something unique to Pop Princess!
~~~This contest will begin May 20th and the deadline for submission is June 15th!~~~
From there, we will pick 8 worthy semi-finalist contestants to submit to an illustration challenge, and finally 4 contestants will go on to the finals round and produce a fabric illustration to be voted on and judged by the world!
(Details of this challenge will be revealed once the 8 candidates have been selected. And the semi-finalists will be contacted and revealed after the deadline for entries.)
The winning artist will go on to be awarded with a paid freelance position and have their work created into fabric yardage used for Pop Princess designs!
(Please do not ask the potential amount the illustrator will be paid for his/her design if he/she wins. This will only be discussed with the winning illustrator.)
Criteria of Illustrator Submissions:
- Is willing to work with the designer, be flexible, and bring creations/ideas to life
- Has a good eye and skill for illustration (i.e. proportion, color concept, overall design)
- Is well versed in both Illustrator and Photoshop to create full color digital illustrations
- Bonus if familiar with producing fabric designs
