:new: And the contest is closed! We got some amazing entries in this time around! I hope to have the judging results back within a week at the latest. That will also give me some time to post a new exclusive back for winners to choose from, as well as letting out other prize donators figure some stuff out!

Also, just FYI - we seem to have lost 2 of our prize donators (and one entrant) into the Deviation in storage/Account on hiatus ether. If you know A-Wakefield/Mandies-stock in the RW, can you have them contact me to know if they will be back in time to be judged/donate as promised?

Thanks so much guys!!!
:new:

So it might not be common knowledge, but we of Hiddenyume-stock love books. Love them I tell you! No really, of the four main models on the account, one of us is a published author, two are aspiring authors, and one is totally a sexy librarian for her day job.
 

We’re fans of everything from the classics of sci-fi like H.G. Wells and Mary Shelley to classical literature like The Iliad and The Odyssey to modern romances to dystopian young adult books to… well you get the picture. Books are love. It’s just that simple.

 

Considering that, we decided it’s time to have a literary themed contest!

 

Just in case you need ideas, some of our personal faves are the Harry Potter series, Shakespeare, Edgar Allen Poe, Anne Bishop’s Black Jewels universe, Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel saga, Stephen King’s Dark Tower series, Tolkien’s collected works, C. S. Lewis and Narnia, and Susan Cooper’s Dark is Rising saga. Note – picking one of these for your entry won’t necessary earn you extra points, but you will get to see your stockers flailing like lunatics.


Deadline:
June 30, 2014
(We wanted to give all of you lots of time for entries!)

Rules:


1. Your entry MUST contain one of our model stock images as a CENTRAL figure in the entry. Note: any visual media is welcome. I.E. you may use our model stock as a reference. Your entry does NOT have to be a photomanip. Paintings/drawings/etc are also definitely welcome!
2. Your entry must have been inspired by a published book, play, or short story, and you must note which literary piece inspired you in the description. Seriously – we’d love to get some new ideas for our reading list! Please note: If your book has been made into a movie, please remember that you cannot use movie stills/screen caps from the movie in your entry – legitimate stocks only please!

3. Your entry MUST be new created for this contest.
4. You may enter up to 2 entries. (Only 1 entry can win!)
5. You must link back to this contest in the description of the entry.
6. You MUST notify us in a NOTE titled "Librarian’s Choice Contest entry."
7. You must properly credit any and all stock used in the description of your entry.
8. All our normal rules must be followed.

I had a question because in first rule you write that "Your entry does NOT have to be a photomanip" and then in Contest Entry I see three this kind of art. 
Reply
:iconhiddenyume-stock:
HiddenYume-stock Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2014
You can do a photomanip if that's the kind of art you do, but you can do a drawing as well! It's up to you - as long as it's a visual image that used or referenced one of our model stocks.

This is an amazing theme, and WorldWar-Tori has suggested I enter, so I'm in!!! :la:

I have one question:

my chosen book has been made into a movie...and they butchered some of the descriptions in my opinion.
Are we allowed to create the scene we visualized in our heads when we read the book?


ALSO:

I can donate:

1st: 100 pts
2nd: 75 pts
3rd: 50 pts

Feature for all winners :D

Exclusive Stock from my stock account: Mandies-Stock

and...:+devwatch: & :llama: for all :dance:

Oh my gosh you are a doll!!! Thanks so much for the prizes darling!!

And do you want to donate an exclusive pack to all 3 winners or just to first place? I've got the other donations up, but I wanted to double check on that one! *huggles*

You absolutely can do a movie that's been made into a book - I may be doing an honorary entry for Lord of the Rings actually I think LOL.  You just can't use any of the images from the movie as stock in your entry. Otherwise, go wild with our stock and create the scene you thought should have been there! *grin*

I haven't put together any packs yet, so what I will do is
the usual:

1st place 3 exclusives stocks of choice
2nd place 2 exclusives stocks of choice
3rd place 1 exclusive stocks of choice

This way they can pick whatever they like :D

:dance: It is my pleasure to help out fantastic contests! :dance:


:la: I'm on it! And seeing since I have so much time before the 
deadline...I just may do two....:la:
*I'm a huge fan of The Lord of The Rings, so I am very :excited:

I'm seriously in love with this theme :la: I may have to learn how to do photomanips or drawing just for this, I have so many ideas! :lol:

That aside; I can donate a feature, llama [if you want them], 5 critiques [split up however you want].

I know right??? I was shocked we hadn't thought to do anything for it thus far!

And I would be thrilled if you did!! Other than stock, I primarily write, but every so often there's an image I just have to make myself try to pull off.

And you are awesome! I gave the feature and 3 critiques to first place, the llama and 1 critque to 2nd place, and the last critique to 3rd place.

Thanks again - any prizes we get make the contest that much better!
