Unofficial Art Challenge

Art is not only about that what we find beautiful. It can become so much more and give an insight in the mindset of the time.
— High Sage Syronikir
  The Unofficial Flash Challenge will take place during March and will cover a famous piece of art in your world. Everyone that wants to participate can submit an article about a famous piece of art in their world. This can be paintings, statues, literature, architecture or any other piece of culture that can be considered art.   These articles can be submitted by adding a comment with the article on this page or by putting it on the Niorath discord. This Flash Challenge is judged by Kefkejaco who will not participate.   Submissions will run from March 1 to April 17 2022.   After all the pieces have been judged, an article will be made declaring the winners. I will choose a premier and non-premier league winner. Depending on how many participants there are I could also choose a most creative for each of the leagues.

Thank you so so much! I've never won any awards, so this is so exciting! I'm definitely going to brag a little and add that to the article itself. :)
