We received 41 astonishing entries for the Mythos Photo Contest and all pictures are now displayed on canvas in three main Galleries in Second Life:
- Morphues’ Gallery of Dreams at Mythos
- Cult of Creativity Gallery at Spurt Beach
- Keith Haring Fine Art Hall at Wilde College
You can vote for you favorite picture during the month of November 2018
WHAT IS THE EXPOSITION ABOUT
Mythos – a realm in Second Life – provides a reference to mythology and all the stories that were told throughout mankind, legends about gods and evil and strange creatures, amazing adventures about heroes – or common people turning out to be heroes – and the ‘good and bad’. To honor this legacy, we organized the “Mythos Photo Contest“.
HOW TO VOTE
- Visit this exposition in one of the galleries.
- Click on each photo to find out its’ number, title and creator. (Make sure you are in chat range when clicking the picture!).
- Make a new notecard (new, so i can see your name!), with your Top 3 with the numbers and titles of your favorite pictures.
- Drop the notecard in the blue mailbox in the gallery, or drop it in the profile of event organizer David Tertius Aquillius – username: davidarof denimore.
- You can vote only once. You are allowed to send in only one title instead of three (if you have a very clear winner). It is not allowed to vote three times for the same photo. It is not allowed to vote for your own picture.*
- Your number 1 will get 6 points, number 2 will get 3 points, and number 3 will get 1 point.
- Popular votes will make up 1 jury vote (of a total of five).
* Votes that do not meet these rules will simply be ignored.
