March 2012 Contest Details


Hero Arts is now offering exciting MONTH-long contests based upon creative monthly themes and a featured technique/project. We will announce winners in TWO groups, so you have twice the opportunities to win! (Please note that March has five Thursdays so we have made some revisions to the usual calendar, noted below.)

  • Submit as many entries as you would like around the monthly themes and/or featured technique.
  • Submit by the third Thursday and the fifth Thursday of the month.
  • 1st Group of Winners announced the fourth Thursday of the month from the early submissions.
  • 2nd Group of Winners announced the first Thursday of the next month from ALL submissions.
