Calling all artists! BillionGraves is hosting a brand new competition and we need all you artistically-minded people to submit your work!

artNext year, we will be holding monthly challenges where picture-takers and transcribers will both get to participate. Each month we will introduce a new pin, and if you complete the monthly challenge you will win a pin! The challenges could be as simple as making the leaderboard or uploading/transcribing a certain number of images.

And that’s where the art comes in. We want to feature YOUR ART on one of our 12 pins! You design the pin and we’ll make it happen.

Win the Pin Competition V3Simply submit your artwork to and if your design is chosen, your work will be featured on our blog, social media sites, and—of course—all the pins we send out to the monthly challenge winners!

Here are a few simple designs we put together to get your creative juices flowing. Feel free to make your designs more complex, including the shape of the pin itself. You may create the image any way you want, just keep in mind that at some point it will have to be digitized in order to make a pin out of it.
