Want to do an event, but your artistic skills aren't as good as your other skills? No worries! This event covers ALL types of media; writing, photography, traditional drawing, digital art, collages...You name it, you can enter it!

This is a multimedia event that revolves around the Vernal Equinox. The time of year where life begins to grow again, trees and flowers bloom, and the days get longer and the temperature gets warmer. It's also time to let your creativity bloom and show off your skills in whatever kind of art you are most proficient at. I highly encourage mixing up different kind of media!

Rules: The art must be spring or equinox themed! You may enter 1 entry for the contest; however it is optimum to combine multiple types of art or media together such as a story and photography, or a drawing with a poem as a few ideas.



RESULTS!

None of this is fact, and the meaning of the words "vernal" and "autumnal" were made up.

Spoiler! :
The birth of the Equinox.

There was an old tale back when the Nordic people used to worship gods like Odin and Thor, but, one story was lost due to the elders not remembering them and not being able to pass it down. Luckily for us, in the 2000s, Historians doing research about that time, stumbled across a man who was able to tell their story. It was a story about the Sun god, Alodinox and the Moon god, Equimatote, who created the equinox. Alodinox and Equimatote used to rule the Midgardian skies together, taking turns each day to come out, so one day would be completely sunny for a full 24 hours, while the next would be completely dark. This was until Odin and his two brothers created Midgard and the planets for this realm. When the Æsir came and took over everything, stripping the gods of their immortality, Alodinox and Equimatote decided they needed to work together in a different way.

They decided that Alodinox would rule for the first half of the day, then leave, and Equimatote would rule for the rest until Alodinox came back out. Around the end of a year, what we call "winter", Equimatote would make the world cold, giving the plants a chance to die on Midgard and come back in the spring to they have the chance to rejuvenate. Alodinox would come in the third month of the new year, in what we call "spring", in order to bring them back to life. They knew with the limited amount of time they had to live, before Loki brought on Ragnarök, so the two gods wanted to get as much done as they could until their sad deaths.

Thus, the Equinox was born! The ancient people took the first part of Equimatote's name because he came first, then the last part of Alodinox's name because he came last, and created it. The Midgardians now had something to call that drastic change of temperature, longer days, and new plants. Since there are a couple Equinox's in a year, they came to the conclusion that it would be called "Vernal", which meant "New", and "Autumnal" which meant "Late".
