Now this is just plain cool. A group of ACEO* artists on etsy have started a challenge they are calling a bounty challenge. According to the rules of the challenge:
"The resulting ACEO artwork created will be listed with the key words of “ACEO Bounty” in the title (when searching please use quotation marks [“] to ensure the most accurate list of the “ACEO Bounty” items).
The Ultimate “ACEO Bounty” Prize consists of all “ACEO Bounty” listings on Etsy at the closure of the competition.
The Ultimate “ACEO Bounty” Prize will be awarded to the last person to post to the “ACEO Bounty” thread when all other post activity ceases for a period of 24 hours …or such time as the Participating Artists choose to end the competition by way of a “Count Down” (see Final Release Clauses)."

This sounds like a lot of fun. I have issued a challenge to create a depiction of Light vs Dark. It can be in any medium and any context so I am looking forward to seeing what people come up with. I think I am also going to try my hand at making some ACEOs for this challenge.
*ACEO stands for "Art Cards, Editions & Originals". They are miniature works of art with one main rule, they always measure 2.5" x 3.5". They are an inexpensive way to buy original or limited edition art.
