I am no painting pro, as I mentioned in the post about Privateer hiring a painter. Well, I'm also not able to get to Russia. So there is absolutely no chance that I'm going to be winning the Mint Dragon Painting Contest, which is being held in Russia. But if you are able to get there and you're good at painting, you might just want to check it out.
From the announcement:
Mint Dragon is the first international painting competition in Russia, organized by Autarky Group, the largest wargames distributor in Russia. More than 150 participants, beautiful prizes, official support by many manufacturers (Wyrd Miniatures, Vallejo etc.), top level judges, 12 categories and a special Wyrd-branded competition!Source
