How will the entries be judged?
Reply
:iconmavis-mignonne:
Mavis-mignonne Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, we will judge the entries based on originality, effort, creativity and technique. ^^
(I will include that in the journal, thank you!)

:iconelithianfox:
ElithianFox Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
So will skill play a role in the judging? Will a bland yet skillfully painted work be placed higher than an original and fresh work that was drawn by someone less skilled?
Reply
:iconmavis-mignonne:
Mavis-mignonne Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Skill plays a small role. We believe that originality and effort are by far more important criteria than skill. After all, our main goal is to see how you will choose to interpret the theme: spring. As we explained, spring is not just flowers! 
I hope that I made my point across and that I answered your question! >~<
