It’s February and Valentine’s Day approaches! This year, we’re hosting a contest sponsored by online art print shop Artifesto. We’re looking for beautiful original images with the theme of “China + Love”.
The contest is open to all chinaSMACK fans and readers, to both professional and amateur photographers, to local Chinese, expats, and foreigners abroad…to anyone who can compose or capture an image that represents–or interprets–”China + Love”.
Three lucky winners will be selected to receive a free print of their winning submission from Artifesto. Your print will be finished on high quality photo paper poster, gator board, canvas, or alu-dibond (up to you!), valued at between 500 to 1000 RMB, and shipped to your door where you can hang it up at home or in your office (or wherever, again, it’s up to you!).
Select entries may also be selected to be featured as one of chinaSMACK’s future random website backgrounds.
