Doroud - I hope you all had a great Norouz!


After a year of running this club I have decided to start a competition, hopefully this will help to promote the club and help toward the aim of this club which is to promote Persian culture & art.

Title of the competition is "Persian culture". Please submit your art in any form that is acceptable by deviantART to show a comprehensive or simply fresh view to any part of the Persian and/or Iranian culture.


Full year subscribtion to deviantART.

Rules & terms of the competition:

1- The theme of your piece must be related to Persian culture andor Iranianism in general.
2- It should follow the general rules of deviantART submissions.
3- You should post it on your user account first then send a note to Persians with the link
4- It should be related to PersianIranian culture or historical concepts only.
5- You do not have to be a member of the club.
6- You do not have to be PersianIranian.
7- No more than 3 pieces per member.

Some ideas to inspire you:

Iranian art (both old & contemporary), Iranian festivals (e.g. Norouz, chahar shanbe soori, etc), Iranian adábo-rosoom (e.g. ta'rof), Persian poetry (e.g. of the famous Persian poets), Iranian food & drinks (e.g. doogh, khoroshts, etc), Iranian religions (Mithraism, Zoroastrianism, Baha'ism, etc), Mysticism (Shahnameh characters and symbols), Warfare (general warfare related), etc.

There is no specific date for end of the competition for now. For more information/suggestions please feel free to send a note.

Well I have to edit some picture up for featured picture on Wikipedia but then I would love to come up with something to make in vector art! I wonder if this contest is even still on! I feel like I'm months too late... Even if it is over, I'll still try to make something...

I send a note to your club in Apr 22, 2006. In this note, I've submitted two works for the competition. The note seems like to be read, althought I had no response, maybe you were planning to response in the next update of this journal. I'm submitting my works here. (In case to prevent some errors.)
