Want to Get Involved?

Call for entries: We want you! Ten Paces is hosting its first ever Sketch-A-Thon contest! We're taking as many sketches as possible on the theme the 1980's. Out of the pile of talent we receive we will choose 6 sketches that will be taken to final by 6 of our superstar collaborators! If your sketch gets chosen not only will we feature your sketch and create an amazing piece of final artwork, your personal work and bio will also be featured on our blog. But that's not all - you'll even receive an 8"x10" print of the final piece to display proudly in your home!

There's no limit on the number of submissions you can send, so hop on over to our brand new flickr group and start sendin' em in. The deadline for all submissions is September 2nd - and the chosen artists will be notified the following Monday, and finals will be posted September 8th.

Here are a few simple rules and regulations if you want to qualify for the sketch-a-ton

1. Please only submit sketches for our specified theme - the 1980's
2. All sketches must actually be sketches, not finished or colored artwork.
3. Please keep all sketches PG, or at the very least PG-13
4. All sketches must be at least 550 px wide, but bigger is better!
5. Again, the deadline for submissions is September 2, 2011.
6. Submissions will only be accepted through our flickr group - please do not email us.

We're very excited to host this contest, and we hope you'll help us spread the word! So pump up the Wham, tighten your scrunchies, and get drawing! If you have any additional questions please contact us through our flickr forum.


  1. Would it be possible to make a Ten Paces and Draw group for people who want to play amongst each other for the weekly themes? Maybe they could post sketches and approach each other to claim sketches they like and finish them out. Then you could pick your favorites and put them here?

  2. That would be a great idea! Give me a week or so to get sometime set up! Eventually that's how we want to operate - to be more inclusive, as well as make the process more streamlined. It'll just take a bit of thinking and organization.

  3. This sounds awesome! I followed Isaac Orloff over here and love the community you guys have going on. Keep up the awesomeness :)
