To spread the excitement of our recent collaboration with the House of Pomegrantes- an illustrated release of “Carmilla” and designs inspired by the story- we’re hosting a contest!
It’s the dead of winter, and the perfect time to explore the ancient myth of the vampire. Whether you believe in their existence or not, their magic is captivating and has inspired many films, stories, and all sorts of artwork!
How do you see your vampires? Elegant and plotting? Monstrous and unpredictable? Deceptively sweet? Create a piece of art inspired by vampires (bonus points for Carmilla as your inspiration)! It can be a drawing, painting, digital artwork, photo, costume, short story, poem, or any artistic endeavor you can imagine. There will be 2 winners picked!
Rules: One entry per email/mailing-address/person only. Open worldwide! Please submit your artwork by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, “Carmilla Contest” in the subject line (winners will be contacted via email). All artwork will be posted in a facebook album in perpetuity (with your credit intact). Deadline for submissions is March 1st, winner will be announced on the 5th here in the ‘zine.
First Prize Winner will be chosen by “likes” on facebook! We’ll post your artwork in a special album on the page (HERE) and the one entry with the most “likes” will win the big prize! So be sure to promote your entry to your friends to accumulate “likes”. 😀
Second Prize Winner will be chosen by Taeden and House of Pomegranates, we’ll pick our favorite entry of all of them (“likes” quantity has nothing to do with this selection).

A signed by the artist print of one of the original plates from Carmilla! Handmade mystery design necklace made by designer That Green Haired Chick! Wow!
