:iconlunachu97: pointed out Dulux's habit of giving colours strange names... and also how inspiring they can be for stories!

To enter this contest, simply write a short story inspired by a paint colour. We've handpicked particular colours from Dulux's collections: Authentic Origins, Timeless Classics and Feature Walls. The collection title may inspire the tone for your piece, while the colour depicts the content... but you can take this in any direction!



There will be a first and second place, and yes, there will be prizes! And they are:

FIRST PLACE:
200 :points: from :iconwriterelease:
A sketch from :iconruairian-nub: of a character of your choice!

SECOND PLACE:
A drawing of a character of your choice from :iconannapandaadoptables:
:+devwatch: from :iconmegatarget:

And of course, both winner and runner-up receive much praise and admiration from us all! :dance:

I understand that, I was just curious. It's just a shame for me because I've been more interested in my poetry rather than my prose of late. :heart:

Ahh I see. Well, there are numerous poetry groups around dA if you haven't already joined some or took a gander :) I'm part of some myself. Open Mic (I believe it's called) is a particularly vast poetry group.

I'm a part of a few, actually. I've just really been digging the colour contests going around lately and this one looked particularly interesting! :heart:
