The Self-Portrait Nude Contest has at least reached its end. Me and lovelizzie has mulled over the entries and we finally settled on the following order.

Before we announce the winner and the runners up, we would both really like to thank you all for submitting your photos and spreading the word. We sincerely did not expect the entries to be so good across the board, but it was a genuinely difficult decision to make. As is often the case with list-making, we suffered. Our gratitude and admiration goes out to all of you!

Pretending for a moment that you have not already scrolled past this text; here are the winners:

:trophy: WINNER :trophy:
Self Portrait 2010 by gingersfunkyphotos

Naked Sunset - I by lucsurr

resting by dreamsdismissed

So we send a hearty congratulations to gingersfunkyphotos and thank you again to everybody who submitted. We think it's safe to call this first contest experiment a raging success. Be sure to lounge around as we will definitely do this again!

Rules & General Info

:bulletblack: This is a group primarily for Artistic Nudes portraying the plumper elements of our society, if you will. Basically, it's big, fat, chubby, stocky, full-figured people, both men and women. We obviously have nothing against art portraying skinny or toned people but this group is completely focused on anybody who falls between those two groups. View our gallery and favourites and you should get a pretty good idea of what we are looking for. :)

:bulletblack: This is a group almost entirely focued on nude and semi-nude art. Please try and avoid submitting face-only portraits, fetish gear or genitalia macros as this is not really the best group for them.

:bulletblack: Limit of Gallery additions is 3 per week.

:bulletblack: We aren't too snobby about what goes in the Gallery but we will have some quality standards. Should your submission get rejected then please ask me why and I will try to explain.

:bulletred:This is NOT a group for expansion, pregnancy fetish and feeder art.

:bulletblack: This is a group mainly for Artistic Nude Photography but we aren't too fussed. If you have good Nude or semi-nude art then please do not hesitate to submit it - we love the variety.

:bulletblack: While this is a group mainly for big bodies, the line is pretty fuzzy. We try to devote this primarily to non-skinny/non-muscley art, so almost anything aside from that should be okay. We kind of take it as we see them, really.

:bulletblack: Above all; have fun. Share your work. Commenting is HIGHLY encouraged as is constructive criticism. We all want to become better artists so any dialogue is a brilliant step towards that.

:bulletblack: Of course you are also welcome to join even if you do not contribute but enjoy Artistic Nudes and plus sizers.

Follow these guidelines and we should have an awesome little group going. Happy contributing and do not hesitate to message me on anything you would like to know!


Group Info

embonpoint \ahn-bohn-PWAN\ , noun;

"Embonpoint" is most often used to describe people of heavy, but not unattractive, girth. It derives from "en bon point," a phrase from Middle French that means "in good condition."

* * *

A pretentious name for a simple idea. This group is to celebrate artistic nudes -primarily photography - featuring the plumper elements of society. We have nothing against skinny or muscled people and all love to them, but this is a nook especially for those that fall outside of those categories.

Be it slightly chubby to very large indeed, we want to see you strut your stuff. We welcome all art, but I expect this to be a mainly photography based group. Artists and models alike are just as welcome!

Here are some other great groups that we highly suggest you join as well!

My guess is that this group is fairly dead because of the exclusion of other fetishes, which other big-belly/fluffy-people pictures/drawings/story groups include.

Is this group DEAD?
lovelizzie Sep 30, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Nope. We moderators have real lives too. Sorry for the delay.

I just made my first submission to the group and even though its a digital painting the only gallery i could submit to is the Featured. Im hoping this is okay. if not please either move the submission to the Non-Photo gallery or decline it and let me know how to access the correct gallery.

Thanks for any assist and i hope you enjoy the submission.
lovelizzie Jul 30, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
No, I think it's the submission process itself which won't allow things to go into anything but Featured. We move it later, which is fine with us! We make sure nothing gets miscategorized! :heart:
