So I entered my best work in a high school art contest. People told me I was going to win, especially in 3D art.
I and altered book and two drawings. I understood why my drawings didn't place, there were stunning and much better drawings in the contest. But to not even be in the show made me do a double take on the absolute shit that was in there. Yes, I called other peoples "art" shit. I'm saying that because I know just about everyone in the show and I know they did not try at all. They just glued some magazine strips down on a canvas, called it art, and placed in the contest. And half the drawings weren't even proportioned right or they had food/drink stains all on them.
I'm really not joking either. The drawing that won 3rd place was a weird picture of a floating head (it wasn't even drawing correctly) and it had water stains all down one side. I'm pretty sure it wasn't supposed to be like that. And let's not forget about the 1st place mixed media piece. It was a shoe cut out of a magazine and glued to a canvas. And the photography 1st place was of a red bird that was heavily edited. The paper it was printed on was terrible too...
What Place In 3D
Can you guess which one is mine? Hint, it didn't place.
I am just so pissed off about this, I wont lie. I'm not just upset at the fact I didn't place and only got $5 in prize money (which is better than nothing). I'm also upset that there were beautiful drawings in the contest that should have placed and all they got was honorable mention or nothing at all. I know this contest was rigged, along with every other one since I was a Freshmen.
The last time I won an art contest was when I was a freshmen and I entered the worst piece ever. Yet my amazing art never gets recognized. Seriously? :/
