University for Polyvore Design

University for Polyvore Design

Founded by @zipora-b February 2014.
This group is open to all and is a group to socialize and make new friends while increasing our design skills in making beautiful Polyvore creations.
 
We are a group of like-minded individuals, just looking to enjoy our time on Polyvore while strengthening the Polyvore community!
 
We currently have 10 UPD Professors of Design and 5 UPD Mentors, check them out below!
 
For this group, many of our contests will center on learning a new skill in Polyvore design, meaning anything from fashion, home, art, doll, icon, or album set design. It might even be embellishments, tips and tricks with the Polyvore editor, or telling a visual story through our creations.
 
We will have regular tutorials, lessons, and tips and tricks in Polyvore design, and not to forget, there will be awards, and hopefully prizes as we grow!

ARTistic Tales

ARTistic Tales

ARTistic Tales is a group for anything that tells a story. You may use fashion to help set your theme, however, lets see your art expression with books, journals, your own creativity in writing, quotes or other tales by other authors. Faerie Tales are certainly welcome! Most of us are inspired by the written word, let's see how you get inspired by it! I am a writer and a poet, but you do not have to use poetry, you can insert other writings, quotes, epics, etc into the description of your sets. We won't always require writing, but we do prefer if you use some sort of writing or quote (poetry if you wish) along with your set. Most of all, let your mind wonder. Use Your Imagination! Be free to speak out whether it be in your words or others. All we ask is for you to refrain from profanity, racial remarks, and discouraging others. We are here to ENCOURAGE one another. Thank you for joining! @nonniekiss & @dreamweevs

FYI
I hope you win many trophies here at Fabulous-Expressions!
How my contests are judged:
1. Based first on the contest theme. For example if the contest theme calls for a Yellow Set, that's what I'll look for first. If the theme calls for a solid yellow skirt, then plaids, stripes, or polka-dots in another color will not do, as it would not be solid yellow. If the theme calls for specific items please be sure to include them in the set, i.e., a hat or odd bag, or a particular style of shoe.
2. Details! Color, style, great use of main theme items, background, layout, complimentary items, and added effects should all work together to make one gorgeous set. I love the set where the artist has paid particular attention to the details that make each set his/her own creative masterpiece. I'm a little OCD in that I like to see shoes paired in sets as opposed to the one going solo! :)
3. Unique Creativity! I check for copied sets! I will try my best NOT to make a copied set a winner. I have been victim to copying and mass item raids and I am not fond of those who choose to play this way. Be your own unique self. Originality is highly valued here! If an original set has 7 items, and your entered set uses 3-7 of those items, you will not be chosen as a winner no matter how beautiful your set is, even if you change the layout or add a few extra items. I consider this copying because the set will not be an original. There are thousands of gorgeous items on Polyvore, please use the search feature to gain your main set items and not from the sets of your poly-friends!
4. You enjoy the contests here and you keep coming back for more! :)

♥Hooked On Style♥

Please do not submit sets with profanity, nudity, or are of a hateful or hurtful nature, and no retail marketing sets please! They will be rejected! Sponsored sets are okay if they look stylish and attractive! Thanks!

I try very hard to ensure everyone has an opportunity to win!! If you are looking for a mod that plays favorites, this is the wrong group! I believe everyone deserves the chance to shine! So shine on my dear ones, shine on!! xx

THE ANYTHING POLYVORE GROUP

THE ANYTHING POLYVORE GROUP

FASHION - DOLLS - ART - INTERIOR (HOME) sets welcome! WE HAVE A CONTEST EVERY WEEK W/ A UNIQUE THEME EACH TIME! This group is ALWAYS ACTIVE and has been over 5 years and counting! Due to rudeness I've received i must say that this group is very active and unique and though we accept all sets that doesn't mean this group is boring or pointless. I love each of my members dearly and we don't discriminate and every contest is open to all types of set from art to fashion unless noted! This group means the world to me and just because the groups name has ANYTHING in its title doesn't mean that this group is stupid or give you the right to be unkind. I try to make each contest specific and open to many different styles. I want to thank each member and if your new please know i value you greatly and if you need anything at all i'm always here for you Love always,
Desiree
