Hey, OP here. I just thought that you guys might be interested in knowing that the contest was actually rigged. One of the judges and the winner were in cahoots, and they halved the prize money. They were found out and had to return the money. I still wasn't ranked high enough to win though, but at least now I lost to someone who submitted actual art.

Art always confused me. You have great artists winning nothing and not having their work known, while other artists draw nothing but a blue line and sells it for millions.
Visual art is no longer about the ability to paint, an eye for proportions and composition or the like, it's about writing the story that sells the piece to the critics. Consequently, inventive authors that can't draw shit have a greater chance at winning an art competition than any immensely talented painters.
Enter it in another contest? Also was there a theme or something going on here?
Sounds like modern art. If you entered a modern art contest that's your own fault bro if Vincent Van Gogh wiped his paintbrush off with a paper towel, called it a masterpiece of nature and sold it, it would go for 1mil dollars hands down. But if not then idk that blows either way
