If we submit a project in which we use a drawing app such as Canva (which supplies images for us to use), would that be acceptable or would it be considered as not being our own work?

Hi Emerald,
Thanks for your question. You would need to manipulate the provided image in some way. You would not just be able to use their image and call it your own work. Just like if people grabbed an image off the internet, they need to be manipulated (whether blended into the back ground, filter change, color change, two imagines blended into one, etc.) to create your own image. Hope that helps! :)

hi hi, one form of art I participate in is modeling, especially cosplay modeling. My favorite photoshoot I’ve ever done was of my OC, Septima Lestrange. Are photographs as such able to be used for submissions? Or does it have to be drawn/painted/etc type of art for every project?

Yes Septima! Sometimes we will say specifically what form of art should be submitted - like in the case of a collage - but usually, as long as it fits the prompt provided, most art forms are accepted as long as they are HOL appropriate (so no inappropriate models, child friendly), your own work, and display a level of effort!

I actually have 2 questions:

1. Can we post random HOL art we make or do they have to fit a specific theme?
2. I like to make things like video edits ( including harry potter related ones) and song covers ( currently working on a cover of the mermaid song from the goblet of fire; figured out the harmonies) I personally consider video edits and music covers a form of art, so I am wondering if we are allowed to post things like those here? ( my mermaid song cover would just have vocals i wouldn't be in the video) also if we can't post those here is there a place we can post those kind of things on the hol forum?

Hey Kelly,
I fee you got your first question answered, but as the content in your second question sounds fun, we really don't have a place for that at HOL and as a reminder (without know where you save your video links too) per the HOL Handbook,

"We would also appreciate it if you could avoid linking to websites that have comment sections or lots of ads: while these might look clean and g-rated when you're on the page, they can change in an instant."

Though, I am happy you found a way to be creative with your love of all things Harry Potter! :)
