The poll was incredibly close, but in the end, the Ainur won!

Theme: The Ainur


Clarification of Theme
:bulletred: What are the Ainur? Well, Wikipedia has a short article on them, but in short, the Ainur are the fourteen Valar, an unknown number of Maiar, and Melkor. The majority of them play a role in the Silmarillion, though there are some, such as Olorin (Gandalf) who plays a greater role in LOTR.


Categories:
:bulletred: Traditional Art (drawings, paintings, sculptures, etc)
:bulletyellow::bulletyellow: Slight digital correction of scans/photographs of the piece (levels adjustment, cropping, etc) is allowed. Use your best judgment.
:bulletred: Digital Art (drawings, paintings, photo manipulations, photography, etc)
:bulletyellow::bulletyellow: Not to state the obvious, but any photography must be done by you.
:bulletyellow::bulletyellow: Any photo manipulations cannot use copyrighted work without proof of permission from the owner. All stock art must be credited.
:bulletred: Literature (prose, poetry, etc)
:bulletyellow::bulletyellow: Please do not have the piece extending over 3000 words.
:bulletyellow::bulletyellow: The piece needs to be in English; sorry, your mod is language-deficient.



Rules- Read them!
:bulletred: Contest starts now and ends on July 14th, noon GMT. Voting will take place throughout the week afterward and the winners will be announced around July 21st/22nd, before your mod heads off to Comic Con and so you won't have to wait for results.
:bulletred: You must be a member of tolkien to participate (in other words, just press the "Join the Group" button at the top).
:bulletred: You can only submit one deviation per category, or three deviations total.
:bulletred: The deviation does not have to be new.
:bulletred: There can be more than one character in the piece, but an Ainu must be the focus. There can be more than one Ainu in a piece, and at least one of them must be the focus.
:bulletred: The deviation does not have to follow gallery standards. In other words, all entries following contest rules will be accepted.
:bulletred: Submit all contest entries to the correct subsection of this folder: tolkien.deviantart.com/gallery… (If the entry you want to submit is already in another section of the tolkien gallery, send tolkien a note with the deviation url and we'll copy it into the correct subsection of the contests folder).
:bulletred: New contest entries not already in the tolkien gallery will be moved there at the end of the contest if they meet gallery standards.


Prizes (will be updated as more people volunteer prizes)
:bulletred: You can still participate in the contest if you decide to donate a prize. Anyone can donate features, points (what are points? Click- about.deviantart.com/points/), stamps, requests (of the donor's choice), subscriptions, etc.
:bulletred: There will be one winner in each category (subject to change if we receive a large amount of deviations and/or a generous offering of prizes).
