Delphi Digital Fan Art and AI Art Contest

Delphi Fan Art Contest

Are you a developer or creative looking for an exciting new challenge that will not only push the boundaries of technology but also possibly win you up to $500 in prizes? If so, the Delphi Digital Fan Art and AI Art Contest is precisely what you’re looking for. 

The goal of this contest is to create digital art around Embarcadero Delphi. Participants may use Greek mythology images such as columns and helmets but are encouraged to modernize the imagery with aesthetics inspired by vaporwave, cyberpunk, cyberwave, synthwave/outrun, or otherwise to modernize or give a futuristic feel. You can use images generated with Delphi (algorithmically, fractals, etc.), or manual art tools and algorithms, plus Stable Diffusion, Midjourney, DALL-E, and/or other AI algorithms and tools. 

Read on to learn more about how you can enter this fun contest and celebrate Delphi! 

How do I enter the Delphi Digital Art and AI Art Contest?

To enter the Delphi Digital Fan Art and AI Art Contest, participants can create digital art any way they would like, including generating images using Stable Diffusion, Midjourney, DALL-E, and/or AI other algorithms with themes inspired by futurism, cyberwave, vaporwave, and synthwave. Incorporate source code, ASCII art, shader effects, vector graphics, screenshots, or anything else that invokes the ideas of Delphi development. You can use any combination of these elements—AI alone or mixed in with other techniques—it’s totally up to you! 

Once your image is complete, post it to the Delphi Reddit page along with your name and a short description of your creation. You can also share your artwork on social media platforms such as Twitter, LinkedIn, or Facebook using the hashtags #aiart #digitalart #delphifanart

What is Generative Art?

Generative art is an exciting form of art that combines cutting-edge technology with creative expression. It uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to generate art from algorithms as opposed to traditional methods like painting and drawing. Stable Diffusion, Midjourney, and DALL-E are three well-known platforms or models of generative art which use different approaches to transform inputs into outputs. When using text to image neural networks, there is a lot of skill in creating, crafting, and tweaking the prompt that describes or inspires the art it generates. 

Generative art provides countless opportunities for those interested in exploring this impressive and ever-evolving blend of creativity and technology.

What is the theme of the Delphi Digital Art and AI Art Contest?

The Delphi Digital Art and AI Art Contest seeks to encourage creativity in technology and art. The focus of the contest is on celebrating the creative vision of software development with Delphi. Some suggestions are of futurism, cyberwave, vaporwave, synthwave, and Greek mythology.

Drawing on inspiration from Greek mythology, the contest’s central theme is based around Delphi – renowned in antiquity as the location where Apollo was said to have uttered his famous words through the Oracle of Delphi at the foot of its iconic columns. By bringing together elements from this mythic past and incorporating modern ideas about futurism and technology, Delphi Digital Art and AI Art Contest creates an immersive landscape of artistic expression unlike any other.

Works featuring images of Delphi or columns traditionally associated with Greek architecture are particularly sought after. Delphi itself was considered to be the center of the world with its renowned Oracle; this serves as a potent symbol for the confluence of ancient wisdom, modern technology, futurism, and visionary art contained in this competition.

Don’t let yourself be limited by Greek mythology. Express what Delphi development means to you. Maybe it is all about speed and productivity, or more focused on the beauty of code and the technology.
