January 2018 Open Challenge

Since I hosted the Open Challenge contests all of 2017, my first being January of last year in honor of Snopaw (her last Open Challenge she hosted was December 2016), I decided to continue the tradition this year as well.

The topic for this contest is "January 2018 Open Challenge". ALL Mediums are welcome.

Showcase your best Photographs, Mixed Media, Traditional or Digital Artwork or Sculpture for the month of January 2018.

**BE SURE to include the date you took the photograph or completed the artwork in your title, description or Artist's Notes.

**Photographs or Mixed Media Photographs must be taken in January 2018.

**Artwork, either Digital or Traditional (as well as a sculpture) must be completed in the month of January 2018.

EVERYONE is eligible to join this contest. Please, if interested, do not wait too long to reserve your spot because they tend to fill up rather quickly.

Deadline: Contest Is Closed. Friday, February 9, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
