The Third Annual Artful August
Welcome everyone from the MTG Cardsmith artistic community, this is our THIRD Annual challenge where you get to show off your skills in both artwork and card-making, and be generously rewarded for it!
As in previous years, we want you to create a Custom Card, using original artwork created and owned by you. Cards will be judged on both standard contest design rules, as well as the artwork design and relation to the card concept presented.
Entries will be accepted from August 1st - August 31st. Winners to be chosen by our League of Judges and announced the first week of September. You may only enter one card url, so submit wisely. Cards may be directly edited (premium feature) on the same submission URL until the final day of the contest, but you cannot re-post/enter more than once.
1st: $50 Amazon gift card + 2 months of premium membership
2nd: $25 Amazon gift card + 1 month of premium
3rd: $10 Amazon gift card + 1 month of premium
Best artwork award: Custom MTGCS Avatar from your original Artwork

@Ian_The_Guru and the MTGCardsmith team have generously expanded the number of winners and prizes so that more of your creations can be celebrated! That means don't worry if you feel your artistic abilities aren't equal to some of the stuff you see getting posted, because you still have a chance to earn one of the many other prizes that are available!
This year's Inspirational Card is drawn and designed by our very own @Tomigon.
Now it's finally time for you to show us what you've got!
