Kilpailun tehtävänanto

The Da Vinci Workshop is looking for 10 How To articles to post to our site.

For this contest we are looking for the articles to have a focus on Caft & Design projects to include but not limited to: art & sculpture, paper & other crafts, costumes & makup (think Comic Con not Barbie), music & Instruments, yarncraft & needlecraft, photography & video, etc… that are great projects for Do it Yourselfers to complete during the summertime season.

A How To provides the reader a set of step-by-step instructions and photographs of a specific project, including a list of tools and materials that others can use to reproduce the project based on the documentation you have provided. The greater the documentation you can provide the reader in your How To, the better.

When writing for The Da Vinci Workshop please keep the following in mind: You are essentially teaching the reader. Think of your reader as an equally intelligent person, that just doesn’t necessarily know everything you know. With that in mind, try to anticipate the questions your reader might have about your How To. It may help to think back to the questions you had when you were first working on your project. Explain everything they will need to know in order to recreate what you are writing about, and do so in an easy-to-read manner, as if you were having a casual conversation with your reader. Describe the difficulties you encountered, the solutions you discovered, and suggest alternative workarounds.

Things you should and should not do if you want your articles to be considered for The Da Vinci Workshop:

You Should:
• Submit your very best work.
• Have a minimum of 200 words.
• Shoot landscape-oriented photographs that are a minimum of 1200px wide. The higher the quality the better.
• Use consistent language and be precise in your writing. Use smaller words in the place of larger words when available.
• Use correct terms for materials, components, and processes. If you are unsure what the proper name for something is, please look it up.
• Define your directions and areas carefully and consistently throughout your article. (i.e. top, bottom, right end, left edge, etc.)

You Should Not:
• Plagiarize or submit work that does not belong to you. This includes, without exception, all visual assets. Do not provide assets of which you do not have the rights (public domain, open source, and your personal intellectual property are all allowed).
• Submit content that is of a pornographic, violent, or hateful nature.
• Use this to advertise a product. Articles that show a use/application for a commercial product are fine.
• Include affiliate/referral links in your article.

We look forward to reviewing your submissions and Good Luck!

    I have noticed that you have several writing contests, each one for a different department. I would like to enter all of them, but of course to do over 60 DIY articles takes time, and if I am not selected that means no money to pay the bills. Is it possible to submit a article for each contests, Example one DIY Art article, One DIY drone article etc. So that I would submit 6. You can then have a look at my work, and let me know if you like how I do my DIY articles. I'm very creative, and does a lot of DIY projects all the time. Most of them I create from my own mind.

    Hello Participants!!! I realize that 10 separate, high quality, articles in one (1) week may have been a lofty goal. I therefore, In order to give all an opportunity to submit their best work, have extended the contest two (2) weeks. I can't wait to see the great articles and look forward to the tough decision on who to award this prize to at the end of the next two (2) weeks!!!!

      Hey Leigh2016, All of these will work. Please keep in mind that we are looking for great summertime projects so the articles should focus on making something for a good summer time activity such as the out doors or bringing the outdoors in.

    This contest sounds perfect for me and my fiancee, I am a writer and she runs her own art business. Will you be using the winner of this contest for just one of the ten DIY articles? Or, are the top ten going to be published and with #1 getting the prize money?
