Week 1 Theme:
SNOW WHITE (1938)
Why not start out our first challenge with the film that started Disney? :)
- Please submit all entries, no reblogs (only on challenge entries, other non-challenge submissions as reblogs are fine). This way I can keep track of everything and add the proper format and tags, and you don’t have to go through the ordeals of trying to type a URL in the ask box.
- All forms of creative work are acceptable. Please don’t feel that you have to fit the boundaries of art submissions!
- Do not submit offensive or insensitive content. The blog rules apply for every challenge I will host, and your content will not be published nor affiliated with this blog. If anyone takes issue with any content here, please contact me and I will hear you out, and if necessary remove the post.
- Try not to whitewash established characters of color. The goal of this challenge and this blog is to represent how Disney could show more racial diversity in their films, not how we could erase the steps they have already taken. This rule is a little tricky, because it really depends on how your interpretation works and if I think it’s suitable for the blog. EXAMPLE: If you set Cinderella in Imperial Russia, that’s fine and will be published, but if you think The Princess and the Frog would work better set with all-Caucasian characters in southern France, then I’m afraid this is not the place for you. We want to celebrate characters of color here, not ignore them.
- HAVE FUN WITH IT!!!!
Monday, September 5 at 12:00 EST (though I will be a little lax on timezone lateness, don’t fret!)
The winner will be announced sometime Tuesday, September 6!
This looks like so much fun!
I definitely don’t have time to do this, but spreading the word because MJ is awesome and runs awesome blogs.
First Peoples: A Documentary Survey of American Indian History by Colin G. Calloway
I had to laugh at the second-to-last sentence because wow, trying to make a centuries-long genocide seem “upbeat?” Yeah, I imagine that’d be pretty difficult to pull off. *headdesk*
