The reality is the audience pool for participation is very small on CD, much smaller even than the number of members suggests. So it is always going to be an uphill battle for participation.

Here's the thing we learned from cc. We had to actively push it and try generate hype, we got judges, participated in supporting each and every wip thread with at least one comment, and then gave crits to everyone at the end. All that effort and entries still only barely got out of single digits some months, though had great participation on others.

You're right of course Amit. Maybe the key is having longer periods of downtime to give the challenges more of a "happening"-characteristic

This is the struggle with getting artists on forums to participate without any incentive or hype to push it. It's probably not really a lack of time issue for most. You give people a month, they'll take the whole month to do sweet fa

Well, we did have a few participants... maybe you could give us some more time. I know I'll finish my entry for this one before I move on to something else

How about thinking of a proper, interesting brief for CHOW instead of a vague, cliche theme?

Aaargh! Never enough time in the day - got a load of chores to do before I can sit down and load some art! By then it'll be bed time :(

You'd think with internet becoming more and more standard globally, these artists would all converge in the most affordable living environment and work via communication.

A hard working art professional can be property owner, have a car, and go on annual vacations, but they will probably not renovate the whole property and line the roof with solar, drive a Tesla, and get on airplane more than once a year all on their own expense... Tesla cars look cool....

You can get rich doing art. But it takes work.

Yeah although I sure won't mind being always able to afford a nice comfy apartment and good food, lol! But art calls, and I answer like an addict.

Doing art makes you rich inside your soul - something more valuable than financial wealth. Cheesy but what the heck :).

Who said they want to be rich doing art? They need to watch more talks from professional conference.

Sarcasm aside, Nous is right though, it ain't easy; Art, especially becoming a freelancer, is not for the weak minded or someone who pussies out easily. I will concede that. :)

Yeah money is overwhelmingly a force for good in the world. Let us be slaves to the art no more!
