    Hi!

    A facebook account is necessary, isn't it? Is there a change to submit an image without a facebook account. I don't have one and don't want to have one. Somewhat discriminating, however, I can understand the ease of managing this competition using facebook accounts.
    At least it was fan to draw something with ink.

      Hi Maximilian, sorry you weren't able to enter, especially if you took the time to create something before realising a FB account was required. We'll make sure that we make it clearer from the outset next time we run one of these competitions - thanks for your feedback.

    Hello Paul,
    I uploaded an image but it's too small- I tried to upload a larger size file but I'm not sure if you are in receipt of it?
    Kind regards,

    Hello, I was encountering problems with Safari (I uploaded an image too small?), so I re-uploaded the artwork again via Opera. Hopefully it has uploaded ok. Many thanks.

    I have put up my photo to enter the contest, but I wasn't able to put in a discription of how I made it afterwards. Is it possible to still do that?
    My picture is "Scarfaced Ant" and I made it by drawing with a black Molotow Grafx Aqua ink marker. First I drew the outlines and then manipulated the ink by using a waterbrush to let the ink run free. I just love the way ink reacts to water and makes it disperse and dissolve into the colors it was made out of. This was made with only black.

      Hi Arnór, thanks for your interest in the competition, unfortunately we're only permitting entries from EU countries due to the cost of insuring & shipping a high-value prize. We may run international competitions in the near future, however, so please do keep checking back!

    Ooops.. Ive entered but I don't think my description came out properly. It was meant to say that its created with Uni fine liner pens and Letraset Promarkers.
    This is an amazing prize!

    Hi, Where do I enter? I can't find a link anywhere to upload my drawing.

      Hi Christopher, sorry for the late reply - just below the banner and introductory text at the top of the screen, there's two columns: the blog on the left is titled "
      #InkToWin Competition" and the column on the right has a countdown timer showing how many days are remaining to enter the competition. Just below that timer there's a button that says, "upload image". One you've uploaded your image you add a description and your email address, and then click the orange "Enter photo content" button. Hope that helps! Feel free to call Pen Heaven on 0208 731 8610 if you need any more support.
