Artists are creating 'For the Love of Art' & We Want To Thank ThemArtist only giveaway - $500, free advertising & more

The idea behind 'For the Love of Art' came to us through talking to artists over the past year, and learning how much hard work they put into their passion without seeing much financial return. Most artists are working full-time jobs and staying up all hours of the night to work on a piece for a show, commission, or just because they feel compelled to create. We wanted a way to reward that passion.

WINNER UPDATE: Big congrats to Rsinart for winning this giveaway. The man is a workhorse constantly working and improving his craft every single day and night. More about Rsin and the giveaway wrap here.

'For the Love of Art' giveaway details

We spent a bit of time trying to figure out what would be a nice combination of things to give away, and at the same time connect with some stores & manufacturers to help us give back to the artists. The giveaway will be made up of three pieces:

The Customizer Dream Package is an evolving list of items donated by a variety of artists, stores & manufacturers over the next 100 days. If you'd like to help us out with some toys, markers, paints, or whatever just reach out to us.

So how do I win this thing?

There won't be a quantitative way of measuring a winner for this giveaway since a lot of it will be measured by the work you're producing outside of Trampt. Along with those intangibles we have some other specific tasks that will go into our decision including posting/updating your work in the library, talking about upcoming projects, sharing sneak peeks, sharing news with us, and engage with members through Conversations. The decision for the winner will come down to Trampt moderators, along with a few outside people I will ask in June to help us make the final decision.

We'd love to hear your feedback

While we've given away a bunch of stuff randomly in the past, this is our first really big push to promote Trampt and we're hoping we created a fun way to do it. Of course, if you have any feedback we'd love to hear it below.

This is pretty awesome of you guys.  Not sure something like this has been done before.  As artist we do work extremely hard for little pay off most of the time, but we do it cause we love it.  Nice to see you guys giving back!

This is very interesting, I know many of us have made a lot of sacrfices forwhat we do, and wouldn't have it any other way. I almost look at this as a "grant" for a hard working toy artist rather than a prize. lol 

I just recently started using the site, and I think you guys really have a unqiue deal going here, glad to be a part! Thanks for making us feel special!

keegan a you're right ... maybe an artist grant is a better term. :) over 7 years ago

Doing this as my day job does prove to be a struggle sometimes but I wouldn't change it for anything! This is a great idea from the Trampt team :)

Thanks for recognizing our struggle as artists. This is more important to most of us than any prize. You rule!

webecomemonsters v I agree man! Knowing people know there is a struggle helps. over 7 years ago

This is incredible! I'm sure whoever gets this will put the proceeds to the best use. I've only recently gone out on my own, and am experiencing first-hand the late nights and personal funding involved - but damn it's worth it just to do what you love and are passionate about: ART.

Well done for doing this, and enjoy picking the winner! :3

This is really cool of you! As a collector who doesn't really know what goes into the creation of these pieces, I look forward to reading the artists perspective and learning.

ELJEFE313 It is just another dumb term from the 60's and 70's that has kinda made a comeback. Instead of just saying thats say cool beans!....It also was a slang term for pills of ecstasy... over 6 years ago
