Hello everyone, it's been a while since I've updated my journal here on dA. I've missed you guys and dA, and lately I've been feeling like I don't get the time to thank you enough...So I want to show you how much I do appreciate the support you've given me over the years. I decided the best way is to run a quick small competition, nothing too complex. I want to keep it simple, but with a positive message. Christmas is just around the corner, and everyone loves giving gifts and receiving them. So I thought this competition could be about "giving thanks" to friends/watchers on dA, showing appreciation to artists/friends who have inspired and encouraged us during our time on dA.
The rules are simple:1.
Submit one piece of your own art/literature/prose/photography.( It must be a new deviation.) You can submit more if you are inspired by a few different artists/friends, but you will only be judged on one thoughtful, inspiring dedication.2.
Dedicate your submission to someone who has inspired you, either with their support, wonderful critique, friendship, or just the kindness they always show you. Basically it can based on any reason as long as it's a positive one.3.
Write in the description of the submission why you are dedicating this piece to the person you have chosen. 4.
You don't need to go into too much depth, keep it simple, honest and thoughtful. Just explain what this person has done to always inspire/encourage you in 2 or 3 paragraphs only. 5.
I will be judging all entries personally. I will automatically ignore anyone who is disrespectful of my simple rules.6.
Please send a NOTE with your entries to me personally, DO NOT
leave links on my front page, as they will NOT
be accepted as valid entries.7.
The competition will run from the 4th of December until the 13th of December (12am AEST).8.
I will be providing the prizes personally. ONLY THREE WINNERS will be chosen, not in any order, and will be given equal amount of prizes to keep it fair. (Please note that all these Prints are of equal $ value, even though some may be slightly bigger).
I hope the coming season finds you all well and happy. This is a time to focus on all the wonderful things in life, not the negatives. Let us be thankful for all the things we have, rather than critical about the things we don't have.
Happy Holiday Season to you all and take care.
