This is why I deleted my photos.

◦Entrant will not acquire any ownership or other interest in any and all trademarks, logos and other intellectual property of Chrysler including all design elements and visual elements of the Dodge Dart (collectively the "Marks") contained in the Work;
◦except as expressly required in these Official Rules, entrant may not use the Marks in any manner whatsoever in connection with the Work or otherwise without Chrysler's express prior written approval;
◦during the Promotion Period, and for a period of one year thereafter, eligible Works submitted to the Contest may be posted at the Contest Site or otherwise displayed in selections made by Sponsor and/or Chrysler, and in any form and media on or off the deviantART site, but only in connection with promotion of the Contest and/or with reference to the Contest;
◦during the ten (10) year period immediately following the Promotion Period (the "Display Period"), the Sponsor, and/or Chrysler may (but will not be obligated to) display the first, second and third place prize winning Works in any form and media in connection with the promotion of their respective businesses;
◦Sponsor, and/or Chrysler may otherwise use the first, second and third place prize winning Works in such manner and upon such terms and conditions as the relevant Entrant may approve in writing (such approval not to be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned); and
◦Entrant may not authorize or permit any Work to be used to promote any product or service of any party other than Entrant, Chrysler and/or Sponsor to the extent it incorporates the Marks.

Too much hassle to keep them up.

I see. Makes sense. Hey, I was wondering about the print issue? After I got a request for a print I tried to set it, but the system didn't want to let me? If I were to pull it out the contest gallery, I could set the print, right?

I also wondered about downloads. Some people allowed them, and some have been downloaded hundreds of times. What's happening with them, eh?

I think if you reload it and dont put it in the contest then you can print, but technically isnt it Dodge's property now? If thats the case rename it and download it again, then print options should be back.
As far as the downloading, I assume if its for personal use, like in a collection its fine, but try to use it to make money or for personal or commercial gain, then you might have a problem.

Difficult. As an creativ based idea, the rights for the work belongs to you. But by useing parts of the car, wich belongs to dodge, the rights of the objects belongs to them. But in otherway they gived those parts free to handle with them.

Isn't it terriblly comlicated always, those legal thingies?
Would you mind taking a peek in my gallery? See, I can imagine if that counts for anything in whichthe car is recognizable. I'm not sure it counts for my artworks?? :confused: They could be anything :lmao:

I have to look at your gallery when I get home as this phone doesnt do your photos justice with this small screen.
I would think Dodge would want all the publicity that could be acquired, after all its a new car!
Technically I think any non winning art comes under the description of fan art, or maybe that is after the car is officially unveiled?

Also failed. So what. There are many more entries wich are better and also didn't got into the semi-finals. So what can we learn from this? It doesent mean that your work is bad, it was just not the rigt pice of what THE CHOSSING JUDGE liked, (or for this art of contest). I think there are many entries that could be greatly used in a Dodge-Magazin to present the car!!! But it was not the meaning here to
create advertising. Never forget; You were part of a dodge-contest, did a good job and they took a look at your artwork. BE PROUD OF THAT!!!!

Concratulasions to the winners!

Hey Lou!

Yup, i did. The reason is that whas not shure if i should watermark it or disable download. Thought in that way they from chrysler
could not handle it. I'm not shure, but since i posted my artwork(changed the color of the car near a HEMI-orange,like you could see),
suddenly more of these HEMI colored cars appeared..Hmmmmm.... thinking of plagiarize?! Doesen't mater, i didn't had much pageviews anyway.
I love that backfall'n emoticon, so cute :woohoo:

How did you notice that i deleted my entrie?

It's just sad that people are worked up on this contest. But I sympathize with them. Most artists if not all have egos. If you're not hurt one way or the other, maybe you're not passionate enough. Good thing I got the beating from friends before I submit my entry. So when people say nice things on what I did, it kind of lifted me up but no more expectations :D

Lou-in-Canada Featured By Owner May 25, 2012   Traditional Artist
yes, people are very worked up. Part of that is to blame on the results being so late, people were already worked up because of that. And then it just continued. I see a lot of very ungracious behaviour, very sad. All these people that keep referring to their own work and how bad it is they didn't make it. Get over it already! If you participate in a contest, the only good idea to have is that you are NOT going to win it. Then if ever you do, it's a nice surprise. But so many people seem so full of themselves and their own artwork and time and effort, it's nearly sickening. I think in a contest, you're to look at everything else, have faves for the win, but exclude your own work from that. Only way to stay sane and happy :D

MecanicalLightning Featured By Owner May 25, 2012
I agree.
Just to say, i never draw/paint to win something. There was a chance for a challange, means a chance to handle a new idea.
When i draw tattoos for customers, then money is secundary for me. I'm just glad to do a new drawing wich will get into use.
The bigest wage there is that i know whereever my customers are going, a part of me will be with them. Even when they go six feet under. The hardest lesson in art is to handle critique. Not getting a "oh wow" or a 1st place doesent mean you did a bad draw. Test your self: stand back from your drawing and if you could say then "Yes, i would buy this" then you know you made a good job. But be honest to your self!

Here on DA, i must say that i'm a little sad that i'm not getting much comments on my artworks. I am very interessted in what other artists think of my work. Thats why i'm posting here between artists :dalove:

I see your point but you don't enter a contest to lose. Part of the fun is that rush you get expecting to win. But if you don't, just take your loss and move on...

Deactivated account? You really let yourself get so down over this that you deactivated your account? Did you join just for the contest then? Boy.. I can't believe this. Losing a contest is NO reason to give up doing something you like. Being an artist means, just going on keeping on, cause you like what you do. Bugger not winning a contest. You like to paint, so.. you paint. :hug:

I saw your entry and your other works... They're really nice... Don't let the contest put you down... It's just time and place. Judges have different tastes, I guess they should have another award for those DA favorites... Then the judges can make a different call if they they choose to... I think that would work...

I agree, there has been no disrespect to us, you shouldn't pull yourself out . There are probably so many pieces to go through it would for anyone be difficult... I am sure it is very time consuming, it is just more there is a lack of communication between us and them that would be helpful to those waiting.

indeed. If they'd let us know the results will be given next week or the week after but on such and such a day, I guess that would be fine with everybody. it's just this saying the 21st and not giving any sign of life, and leaving everybody just hanging that feels yucky
