Theme:
Songs and music have always evoked strong emotions and inspired imaginations. With the songs given below, I’d like to see what you can come up with. All the lyrics and songs can be found online, so give them a listen and see what inspires you.

Songs:
• “Gone Away” by The Offspring
• “Our Truth” by Lacuna Coil
• “Wide Awake” by Lacuna Coil
• “The Howling” by Within Temptation
• “Angels” by Within Temptation
:new:“Somewhere” by Within Temptation
• “For Whom The Bell Tolls” by Metallica
• “Enter Sandman” by Metallica
• “Running Up That Hill” by Placebo
• “Marco Polo” by Loreena McKennit
• “Over the Hills and Far Away” by John Tams (appropriate link to the song is here www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Fy3tS… , not to be confused with the Gary Moore/Nightwish or the Led Zepplin songs)


Rules:
• Contest runs from February 1st until July 1st. Entries will only be accepted within this time period.
• Photo-manipulations only. This is what I can judge best and unbiased, and therefore are the only allowed. Any form of photo-manipulation is acceptable, it does not need to just be horses (for example).
• Originality is a must
• One entry per person, however the entry can use as many songs as you want for inspiration. Please put in your artist comments which song your piece was inspired by.
• While only one entry is allowed, you may change your entry or update it before the contest end date (July 1st).
• Proper stock crediting is a must-otherwise your piece is invalid and illegal. Example, suntanna.deviantart.com/art/Ho… has all the appropriate stock credits plus the inspired lyrics.
• I need a link to the stocks used so I know what you have done and what the stocker did-without these links, I can’t judge it properly.


Submission:
• Send a note titled “Lyric Contest” to myself (suntanna )
• One the piece has been accepted, it will be featured in my journal with the other contestants (suntanna.deviantart.com/journa… ). If it is not up within a week after you have submitted your piece, then feel free to send me a reminder note.

Actually already made what I'd like to enter but not 100% sure it can be labeled photo-manip. It's photos put together to make a effect, brushes etc as well, but it's not per-say me giving something wings or scales etc, the effect is all more what I call 'wallpaper photo-manip' in a way. Is that allowed? If not sure what I mean I'll just enter it and if you say that's not what you're looking for I'll re-enter something different(if can come up with something), is that ok?

I would love to see your entry! It sounds interesting to say the least, and I'm pretty sure that it'd be allowed. Only caveat being that all the stock is credited.
