About the Contest:
This contest is being hosted by Cindy Nunn Publications, as part of the launch of KUDOS magazine. Winners will be featured in the magazine. It will be available to purchase as a hard copy print, but will also be made availabe to read, absolutely FREE, as an online digital edition and as a .pdf download.
The focus of this contest is on classic and contemporary pinup art and the rockabilly look. The main components of pinup art style are Clothes, Pose and Expression. It is more about the “tease” and has nothing to do with close-ups of gynecological parts or pornography. The models tend to have that “girl next door” look, with a sultry, promising expression or a look of surprise at suddenly being caught in a state of minor exposure. Rockabilly is similar, but the girls tend to have a tougher look and attitude.
The criteria and rules for this contest are very particular and concise. Our panel of judges will include at least one recognized expert artist in the genres of classic and contemporary pinup.

1.) The image must be of an adult woman. Absolutely NO men, infants, children, teenagers, dogs, cats, penguins, trees, abstracts, etc… I think this rule is as clear as it gets.
2.) The image must contain a WHOLE woman, from head to toe. No portraits/headshots, torsos, legs, arms, gynecological examinations, etc… If in doubt, go back to the above website links and take another look through the pinup art.
3.) The image must contain the standard elements of pinup art… Clothes, Pose and Expression. Or, it must obviously portray the classic Rockabilly look.
4.) Art mediums accepted: Traditional, Photographic, Digital
5.) No attempts to bribe the judges! As tempting as they would be to one judge in particular, even offerings of Twinkies and chocolate milk will not sway votes!
6.) Judges will NOT be permitted to enter the contest.
7.) Submissions which do NOT follow the criteria and rules WILL be removed!
8.) You may enter up to 4 submissions.
