[12:06]  Edvard Gylling: Hello Silene! Your questions about HEART 2010 Art prize were forwarded to me. There can be several entries from one artist, we let the artist decide the number. If the works have a lot of prims – over 100 – it would be good to ask first as the exhibition may set limits. As we own several sims, prims are not a primary concern.

Welcome to create a ”photo haiku” story based on a pose from ”Poses from prose and poetry”. Now what is a haiku story? It is an expression I have borrowed and adapted from the danish storyteller and arcitect Hans Laurens. The idea of haiku stories is of course inspired by the japanese strict poetry form.  Pratically it means that the story is very short. The story is build like this:
1.    part – an impulse – very often the senses is active, one sees, smells or hear something. So the first part of the story is quite descriptive.
2.    Part – here the move – the action comes in. The impulse leads to an action.
3.    Part – the ending of the story. But it can not be just any ending – the ending must surprise and hopefully throw a new light on the previos parts.

See one example here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/narsisstic/4284754470/

So in the contest you are supposed to take a photo with a pose from ”Poses for prose and poetry (vendor PPP002  Female poses standing)” (to get here: http://slurl.com/secondlife/The%20Companion/140/173/2001 ) and add a text to the photo which creates a ”haiku story”.  Of course the aim of this contest (1st round of 10) is to focus on the poses from ”Poses for prose and poetry”, but it is also a part of my research to find out what trigger stories within second life.

The winning pictures/photostories will be showed in the store and a photobook of poses and stories.
Welcome to use your wonderful imagination.

1.    The photos must be taken in Second life.

2.    The photo must use a pose from ”Poses for prose and poetry Vendor  PPP002 Female poses standing (You will see it quite easily when you land, and despite it says female poses – of course males are highly welcomed to participate.) You can photoshop, using textures and brushes as you wish.

3.    Paste the photos into the discussion named ”Pictures for Contest 1” in the group ”Poses for prose and poetry” http://www.flickr.com/groups/poses_for_prose_and_poetry/ on flickr.  Tag the picture with ”Poses for prose and poetry” and remember to to add the title of the pose used.

4.    Deadline of the contest is  31st of january midnight SLT.

5.    Max 3 entries per person.

6.    The chosen photos must be send fullperm to Frigg Ragu inworld

1.    Price $ 1500 L and a box of 20 poses for either female or male.
2.    Prise $ 1000 L and a box of 20 poses for either female or male
3.    Prise $ 750 and a box of 20 poses for either female or male

Good luck from Frigg Ragu
