Giftcards and moneycards

News on my blog: dyreriget.blogspot.com - my pet-portrait blog:
A giftcard is a special and lovely gift to give and recieve. I now also introduce a moneycard.
You can buy giftcards for a commissioned portrait, on what amount you may desire from 100 dkr. and up. You can also choose to have a moneycard. The difference is that at the giftcard you pay the giftcard amount to me. The moneycard I send to you for 15 dkr., you put cash by it and the reciever can choose to use the money on a portrait, or print or greetingcards, but there is no obligations as to use the money with me. The 15 dkr. covers print and postage.

Below see giftcard and moneycard - both unfolded. Of cause the text on the cards will be adjusted in proper language.

Nyt på min blog: dyreriget.blogspot.com - min blog for kæledyrsportrætter:
Et gavekort er en speciel og dejlig gave at give og modtage. Nu introducerer jeg også et pengekort.

Du kan købe gavekort til en portrættegning, på hvilket beløb du måtte ønske fra 100 kr. og op. Du kan også vælge at få tilsendt et pengekort. Forskellen er, at ved gavekortet betaler du et beløb til mig, som gavekortet lyder på. Pengekortet kan du få tilsendt for 15 kr., lægge penge i, og så kan modtageren vælge at bruge pengene på et portræt, eller print og kort, men der er ingen forpligtelse i at skulle bruge pengene hos mig. De 15 kr. dækker print og porto.

Herunder ses hhv. gavekort og pengekort - begge udfoldet.

What is it with artcompetitions vs designcompetitions



Being involved in each of these worlds - fine art and design - one thing has really puzzled me.

I have been entering competitions in both categories at many different providers. Both kinds being anything from open, viewer-voting competitions of societies and groups to prestigious competitions of societies, magazines, manufactures etc. with prizes as: cash, gift cards, artproducts, productlicensing, magazin publicity = fame and fortune :)

But usually - entering the fineart competitions with prizes cost you - the artist - money. And sometimes a considerable amount of money. You the artist/designer pay the winners. I don't parcipate that much in competitions as I used to - for that very reason. I cannot always afford it.
And the designcompetitions - not lacking in prizes to win - are free of charge...

I understand that societies, not having an income from products, need to do this.
There are manufactures/publishers that have prize-winners and free of charge entering - but I only found few of those.

I know that with design competitions the provider could earn from products later - but you the artist will also earn from that.

Whats your experience and opinion on this subject ?

Watercolorpainting mounted on canvas



This is a watercolorportrait on paper, glued onto canvas (this could also be placed in frame without glass). 

The paper is treated with fixing and varnish to protect against dust and light. Even so, the painting should not hang in direct sunlight (no picture or print should do that).

..................................

DK:
Således ser det ud, når et akvarelportræt på papir er limet op på lærred (her uden svæveramme, som billedet evt. kan monteres i).

Papiret er behandlet med fixer og fernis som beskyttelse mod støv og lys. Alligevel bør billedet ikke hænge i direkte sollys (det bør ingen slags billeder eller print).

Website down

Unfortunately my website has been down for 4 days now. I have no idea what is wrong - no sites with  this webhost is working recently. I really hope it will be solved soon. As I cannot get in touch by email, I cannot give an estimated time for it.

....................................

DK:
Desværre er min website utilgængelig, nu på 4. døgn. Jeg har ingen ide om, hvad der er galt. Ingen af siderne hosted hos webhotellet kører. Jeg håber virkeligt det løser sig snart. Jeg kan ikke komme i mailkontakt med firmaet, så jeg har ikke mulighed for at angive evt. tid hvornår den vil kører igen.
