*SPECIAL NIBBLEFEST ANNOUNCEMENT*
This September marks the 10th anniversary of the Nibblefest Art
Contest! In recognition of this momentous occasion, the theme for
September will be “Birthdays and Anniversaries,” which is already on the
official list (followed by the next few month's theme's determined by our ongoing polls on our Facebook Page)
For those of you not familiar with the history
of Nibblefest, it was started in the fall of 2003 on eBay's Art &
Antiques discussion board (as it was
known then) by Lynn Lawson. Nibblefest was intended to be a one-time
event and our theme was “Cats and Martinis” because those were the two
most common subjects in eBay art auctions (by self represented artists)
at that time. The term “Nibblefest” refers to multiple bidders gradually
increasing the price on an auction, one increment (nibble) at a time.
Everyone had so much fun with the contest that we decided to continue,
little suspecting that Nibblefest would still be going strong 10 years
Looking forward to all the entries this month commemorating Nibblefest's 10th anniversary!
