I am delighted to announce the Tarot Self Portrait-Challenge! Initially this challenge was meant to be an event just for a Tarot Discord server I administrate, but because the prize support for it grew into an all-star list of prize pledges from quality deck makers, I wanted to make it available to other Tarot communities too so these indie deck makers can hopefully get the exposure they deserve and more tarot readers can have a chance at winning one! Please review the full Rules, Details, and Prizes document prior to participation. Here's the short version of the info: Compose and share Your Tarot Self-Portrait in this community challenge that encourages introspection, creativity, and self reflection! What Tarot cards best represent you and why? What parts of your life support these card choices? Challenge: Choose 3-6 cards that you identify most with or feel best represent you. Snap a photo of the cards (either all together or one at a time) in a meaningful location or surrounded by your favorite things, artwork, pets, people, etc. You must include a brief caption explaining why these are your cards. Be creative with your photos because each deck prize is associated with special categories, such as "Creature Feature" for best use of pets, or "Tarry Naturally" for best us of natural elements such as scenic nature overlooks, etc. (Details below) Here is an example entry sans the text portion to give you an idea of what these can look like: Where: Tarotholics Discord Server and/or Instagram When: Accepting Submissions Feb. 24th - March 28th.
