You know the lyrics — now turn them into art!
The original "Fantasia" exploded classical music into fabulous animation sequences. Now it's your turn to illustrate lyrics from Frozen, Lady Gaga, and Lorde as a celebration of the release of the Fantasia: Music Evolved video game. The marriage of music to image is as natural as music inspired by image. Let these extraordinary lyrics move and inspire your art. Take as your subject one of the three lyrics provided from Frozen's "Let It Go," Lady Gaga's "Applause," or Lorde's "Royals" and turn it into art! Each lyric can inspire a million visual interpretations, from literal to abstract—we want to see yours!
Musically Inspired Deviations
How To Enter
Step 1
Choose one of the following lyrics as inspiration for your work. You must include which song musically inspired you in the description of your entry.
Lorde
Royals
"And we'll never be royals. It don't run in our blood.
That kind of luxe just ain't for us. We crave a different kind of buzz."
Lady Gaga
Applause
"Pop culture was in art, now art's in pop culture in me.
I live for the applause, applause, applause."
Frozen
Let It Go
"It's funny how some distance makes everything seem small.
And the fears that once controlled me can't get to me at all!"
Step 2
Create a piece of art inspired by one of the three provided lyrics. You should not depict the musical artists, song lyrics, nor any Disney or other characters.
official rules
Step 3
Your entry must be a single .JPG or .PNG file and must be approximately 2,000 pixels in width and 550 pixels in height. Enter your artwork into the contest by using the button below. Tell us which song and put the name of the song in the description on your entry.

I had read that in the official rules, however when the banner didn't show up yesterday, I assumed that they were randomly announcing the winners; I understand now that there was a bug with the billboard.

Relax. It takes time to judge these things and that date is just the time they always try to get the results. If it takes more time, just wait.

Do the pictures get arranged from best to worst? I noticed they have been rearranged. I didn't expect to win because I am a beginner but I thought my picture was decent. Now it's close to the bottom of the entries.

No, because i thought they would expect entries from other countries since the bases can be located anywhere and they would look over or ask then later on ..but yeah mentioning that i was submitting from a base may have been a good idea..mew
