Rachel’s International Challenge!

Rachel’s International Challenge!

Example Photo Entry

This photo has all the elements of a valid entry: 1) Happy person with art item purchased from me 2) International location by obvious landmark or sign as proof of location.

WHAT:

International Photo Contest.

WHY:

To spread Rachel Brask Artworks all over the world!

IDEA:

Ever hear about the Six Degrees of Separation theory?  I’d like to challenge you all to help me explore this ideas in a fun way to send and document art by Rachel Brask Artworks all over the world!

HOW:

We all probably know someone who is in another country. Or, we know someone who knows someone. So, this can happen 1-2 ways: 1) Buy the Gift of Color for your international friend and send it to them OR 2) Refer them to buy the gift of color themselves (or for one of their friends) from Rachel Brask Artworks this season. THEN be sure they take a photo with a) themselves b) art item from Rachel Brask Artworks, c) a significant landmark or sign as proof of their location and d) credit the person who referred Rachel Brask Artworks to them (or bought it as a gift for them). Then encourage them to also get others they know on board for this contest! The most referrals who can be traced back to one person will win the 1st Prize!

DETAILS:

There will be two prizes awarded: 1st Prize will go to the person who can be traced to the MOST international referrals. 2nd Prize will go to the Best International Photo. Be creative, have fun with it! The 1st Prize is a FREE Commissioned 11×14 oil painting of their choice of subject/style (realistic/impressionist/non-objective abstract), over a $200.00 value!. The 2nd Prize is a $20.00 Amazon.com Gift Certificate.

Clarifications: An “art item from Rachel Brask Artworks” is defined as: any original painting, matted giclee print, or graphic design project. Photos of my business card or a printout from my Etsy shop or website does not count as an eligible entry towards either prize. If you are currently located in a foreign country and already own a Rachel Brask Artworks art item, your photo would still count as an eligible Entry.
