I’m looking forward to this contest. I’ve never done any calligraphy so this contest will be a challenge that will test my abilities to be creative in an area I am unfamiliar with. Also I want to take a moment and thank everyone behind the scenes of and nTOPAZ For all their hard work and dedication this past year in order to present us with contests such as these, a strong platform in order to express ourselves, an area to be creative, and opportunity to develop artistic relationships and develop lasting friendships, support for our hard work, and helping to keep us all inspired! The continuation of this is what I am looking forward to this year! Thank you nTOPAZ and all of the new friends I have made here. :-)

Thank you so much @bdmillergallery,
Thanks to the praise and recognition, we think all the hard work we've done has vanished.
We'll try not to be disappointed in the current situation. Thank you again for your encouragement!

Your welcome. Thanks for your continued support!

Some days it can most definitely appear that way. I am taking an optimistic outlook this year. See ya around!!

Very interesting contest @ntopaz, i am looking forward to see the entries:)

Thank you for your interest @georgeboya, We are also looking forward to see great entries.

@ntopaz Team, I want to appreciate your idea to bring this Contest forward and that is because, in my opinion there are artists who are looking for the opportunities and these kind of contests can boost the spirit to come up with their expanded art pieces. Keep up. 🙂

Thank you @chireerocks, Your warm encouragement is always a great comfort.

Welcome Team and wishing a blessed year of 2019 to you from my side team. 🙂

Just for clarification, maybe someone can explain the rules of this contest a little bit clearer to me. As I look through the entries I see lost of submissions with no “Calligraphy” at all. I based my piece on calligraphy and not sure what others are reading. Can somebody clarify this for me? Just want to be sure I understand the contest. Thanks! :-)
