Stylenoir features digital and traditional artists alongside their fashion photography editorials - the Retribution print issue featured dA artists ~AUTR3 and `Dan-Heffer - and this contest will reflect that diversity with three separate categories!
The theme for the next issue of Stylenoir is Monarchy. Your entries should reflect this (keeping in mind the aesthetic and ethos of Stylenoir Magazine). We want to see your Monarchy artworks!
Please submit your entries to the Stylenoir Monarchy category.
Photographers Rather than full editorials, we are looking for single images (although you are welcome to shoot full editorials, we just want to see one image from it per submission!).
While the magazine is fashion orientated, and fashion photography submissions are encouraged, we are also welcoming more artistic and interpretive photographic submissions - just make sure that your image is related to Monarchy!
Traditional ArtistsWe are excited to see submissions from all sorts of traditional mediums, no limits on creativity and expression! Just maintain the Monarchy theme, feel free to browse the contest and Stylenoir inspiration pages listed in the links below.
Digital Artists Similar to traditional artists, we would love to see any and all means of creating suitable pieces of art! The only stipulation here applies to artists seeking to create photomanipulations to submit to the contest - - I'm afraid that the magazine is unable to accept and publish pieces created with other people's stock so if you want to make a photomanipulation all the stock you use must be your own.
Contest starts on the 30th of August
Deadline for entries is the 30th of September
Finalists are announced on the 7th of October
The three winners are announced on the 14th of October

Is It Porn or Is It Art?I recently had a piece selected for a Daily Deviation. I'd like to thank Nyx Valentine for nominating "Trust" to be a DD. I'd also like to thank all the people who visited my page, favorited images or added me to their watch list. All the comments, good or bad, were very much appreciated as well. Thanks to you all, it sincerely means a lot to me.
I wanted to address something that was discussed in the comments of that piece. There were some people who were disturbed by the inclusion of my piece because they either thought it was porn or that it simply wasn't art.
Regarding whether it's porn or not, I'm not really interested in that discussion. My opinion on that subject is that each individual is welcome to determine the line on what is offensive. The only issue I would have is if you sought to impose your opinion on me (or others). If it

The suggester says, "This was done by building a pool in the studio and rigging the camera
up to take a birds eye view of the model underwater! The skill alone that went into it in mind
boggling. I got to see the canvas prints in person too, so amazing. "

Undiscovered (Beta): Unearthing Quality ArtArt Under The Radar
Each day, hundreds of thousands of pieces of art are submitted to deviantART. As more and more artists join, create, and share their work, it becomes easy for high quality art to miss its chance to stand out and be seen.
Our new browse mode, Undiscovered, aims to bring new, high quality artwork to the foreground.
Finding Hidden Gems
Undiscovered focuses on recently submitted artwork that has not yet drawn attention or recognition at the levels of Popular or What's Hot browse modes. Using an algorithm that identifies patterns in community behavior when curating content, Undiscovered generates a browsing experience that draws attention to creative art and talented artists that may not receive the same level of attention from other browse modes.
Please keep in mind that the algorithm that powers Undiscovered is still new and we may make changes as it grows in use.

Because Undiscovered focuses on recently submitted artwork, the artwork displayed m
