Having become interested lately in ACEOs I came across a thread in the Etsy forum all about a new competition called the challenge to win the ultimate ACEO BOUNTY prize.
First of all – What is an ACEO?
ACEO stands for “Art Cards, Editions and Originals” …a specific “size” of artwork measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches in either Portrait or Landscape orientation …based on the Artist Trading Cards and other collectable cards. It began when the general public who did not own an ATC were unable to trade therefore an ACEO was born which can be bought and sold or traded! There is always a way around a problem or challenge!
The Ultimate “ACEO Bounty” Prize consists of all “ACEO Bounty” listings on Etsy at the closure of the competition.
The Ultimate “ACEO Bounty” Prize will be awarded to the last person to post to the “ACEO Bounty” thread when all other post activity ceases for a period of 24 hours …or such time as the Participating Artists choose to end the competition by way of a “Count Down
Meanwhile, the artist lists his/her ACEO as if they were selling because if the ACEO sells it is their profit – in other words this becomes a very clever marketing tool. Should your challenge ACEO not sell it becomes part of the prize and will be given to the winner.
And so, I thought, after a lot of thought, that I would join in… this was after I was given some wonderful encouragement by other artists since I am new to this medium and just need to build up my confidence – don’t we all?
Anyway, one of the challenges was a general one to create an ACEO
