I have entered the next Saatchi Showdown. I did very badly in the last one. I didn’t do much self promotion, and it will be interesting to see what happens in this showdown.
As an attempt to eliminate all the spamming that was going on artists can no longer link to their URL. Some artists were contacting everyone asking for votes. In some ways that was the most interesting part of the showdown. I was able to see what people were doing to advance their work in the competition. At the same time this did eliminated a lot of interesting work, and became a popularity contest. Maybe it will be a fairer competition now.
