THE WINNERS

We are very impressed with both the amount and quality of artwork submitted to the Love Unites Print Remix Contest. DeviantART staff dug through all of the awesome entries and selected the 25 semi-finalists, then FAIR picked their 6 favorite entries out of the bunch. Finally, Shepard Fairey himself chose the final 3 winners, all of whom we are very happy and proud to announce to you today.

The winners of this contest will receive some great prizes as seen below, but in the end we hope that the greatest reward is knowing that they helped support the cause of equality. And heck, having their work seen by Shepard Fairey was probably pretty nice too.

            

All of the following winners "remixed" this original poster by Shepard Fairey. See the winning results below.

We'd like to give a big "Thank you!" to FAIR and Sticker Robot.

CONGRATS TO ALL... I have already said that ? Well if so, congrats again especially randyblinkaddicter who should have won, but that's just me !!

As for ethnobot's submission, maybe Mr Creative Problem Solver should look at the plank in his own eye :

Congratulations :heart: hmm me prefers an open hand to that of the fist, since a fist often as well can be misinterpreted as anger which is an opposing emotion to love, I feel All Together as 1 by =ethnobot would have come first place since the hands were open and welcomin g and not closed.

At least you guys went through with it. I'll not be able to call all the admins sissies as they finish what they start. Then again, I imagine there was a contract involved, so it doesn't mean much.

Shepard Fairey is a disgusting plagiarist, and he came here, to an art community, with stolen art. He told us to alter it, work that include his logo, and you all did.

Congrats on your wins, but shame on you deviantart. You aren't able to see past an emotional mask, and that saddens me. To be able to truly judge a situation you must be able to take an objective standpoint and not allow emotion to enter into an argument. But you failed.

Love is love. Love isn't a mask or a war, and shouldn't be fought over. But love is also a matter of opinion. Love differs between every single person on this planet. To judge a certain group is disgusting, on both sides.

Law cannot govern love as there is no definite description of "love." We must enforce some kind of law though, because everything we could do will cost money and the country is already in debt.

But enough, it's over. I have my opinion of DA set in stone.

Dr-Fantine Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2010
Yeah, it's kinda sad. All they seem to care about is standing in that retarded artist stereotype of "controversial" and "awe inspiring" and "original."

Oh yeah. It's original to take a picture of an old lady in a third world country with the same composition and black and whiteness as every other picture of anything else in an old world country.

Or, let's make fun of this political figure I disagree with!

Or, let's worship Che! He's a great dude even though I don't know anything about him besides everyone else saying he was a revolutionary kind of guy!

Or anything else unintelligible that makes them feel unique. Screw other people's opinions, they're not real artists. They're not labeled an admin.


Sorry for the rant.

Incidentally, I think more people are annoyed about the art plagiarist judge, not the actual cause.

Well ... it is propaganda, technically.

Propaganda is defined as, "[transmission] of a doctrine or cause or of information reflecting the views and interests of those advocating such a doctrine or cause."

Some people do associate a negative connotation with the word, but it doesn't actually exist in the definition itself.

It is silly and stupid to believe giving same sex couples the same rights as well as health care benefits is a form of negative propaganda :/,
