WHY IS THIS CONTEST BEING HELD?
This contest is being held to raise awareness of The Undershaw Preservation Trust (UPT). They are vigourously working toward saving Undershaw (the home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the writer of the Sherlock Holmes stories) from development and preserving it as Conan Doyle's home for future generations of Doyleans, Holmesians/Sherlockians, and literary fans of all kinds. Go to "A Brief History of Undershaw" on their website to find out what has happened to ACD's former home.
WHAT ARE WE DOING?
We are creating a montage of Sherlock Holmes fans showing their support for the UPT's cause. When the project closes (May 6th) the montage will then be sold as a print (not on DeviantART) and ALL profits will go to the future of Undershaw

I am switching gears as there are some great prizes - and I have to update the prize list!!
The contest is "Legends, Myths, and Fairy Tales". Each person can enter two pieces. Tell me a legend, fairy tale or myth- one of your own, or retell an old one. Change the ending of a classic and give it a new twist. Combine several tales at once - be creative. The two categories are literature (Poetry and Prose) and Digital Art.

Inspiration Project Take II-- JulyHere we are again.Inspiration Project Take II-- July3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And late again...
It's time for the July Inspiration Project! Are you ready to get inspired?
Remember: If you submit a deviation for the previous month, you are on the list for the next month. This means anyone who submitted a six word story in July is being used as inspiration for August. You do not have to be on the list to participate, but if you would like to be on the list for July, you must submit a deviation inspired by art from one or more of the artists on the list below.
A recap of the rules: Go to their gallery, find something that inspires you, create a Six Word Story that follows the guidelines of the group, and submit no more than one deviation to the folder down there per week.
Please submit all stories inspired by the artists listed below here.
Acts of Random Kindness!Hi there, fellow deviants!Acts of Random Kindness!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In this small introductory journal, I'd like to explain an idea for a project I'm expanding upon.
So stay put, it's going to be an interesting read, I promise!
What are Acts of Random Kindness?
Acts of Random Projects, also known as ARKs is a project that was initially started by MzzAzn and builds upon the idea of "paying it forward".
Basically, each month you commit yourself to doing at least one or two (or more) random acts of kindness to spread positivity throughout the community.
This can be done by leaving small positive comments on pieces that haven't been commented on yet, by making art for someone, by giving points to donate towards someone's goal and in a various amount of other ways. The main idea is simply to do something constructive to make another person smile. It doesn't need to be a big gesture, it's the sentiment behind it that counts.
Why should I participate?
Besides the fac
Fan Fiction Contest - Freaky Friday!What if one day you woke up to find out you were in the body of your favourite character and they were in your body? What crazy things would happen to you both?Fan Fiction Contest - Freaky Friday!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This is what this contest is about: Fan Fic writers are invited to tell us what swapping bodies with a character from any fandom of their choice would be like.
Write a short Fan Fiction about your body swap experience with a character in a fandom of your choice.
You must put YOURSELF in their body, and the fandom character in your body. We want to see both characters facing this freaky incident.
You now posses their body and all their powers, but there are limitations. Please refrain from writing anything of sexual nature.
The character now posses your body and has to face reality! So they no longer have their special powers and no one but themselves know about the swap. For example: They would break their hand trying to get coins to pop out of bricks! Or even a co

One of the biggest complaints we hear on deviantART is that the Community Volunteers (or hats as we affectionately call them) and $taff are too "elite" for the general population to talk to. For April, we need your help to disprove that myth! To do it, you'll need to venture into the uncharted wilderness of a $'s or ^'s profile!

Hello there friends
It's time for our next feature. The Poet Feature
Before we start, I have an announcment for all the beautiful Deviant Poets, all my dear friends and watchers, who are either poets or they enjoy poetry.
I have created a facebook page for the poets of DeviantArt. We will be sharing Poets profiles on this facebook page and their poetry, as links of course for their page. This way so many other poets on the page will have the chance to meet each other. This will help the unknown poets to have more support, more watchers, favs and feedback. The more membrs we have the more support the poet will get. It will be like a DD for the poet. If we have just 500 member, and we share a poet's profile, he will be seen by so many Deviants.
I hope you guys join our page. It's a big project and we need the support of every poet on DeviantArt. You will help us start

PE: Street Photography for dummiesA brief guide to Street Photography beginnersPE: Street Photography for dummies3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
What do we need to shoot a Street picture?
1. A camera
Whatever kind of a camera is good. Either it is a ridiculously expensive rangefinder or an unbelievably cheap point and shoot compact. Either it shoots digital or it shoots film. Either it weighs a ton or it weighs few grams. ANY camera is fine as long as you have it with you. The most expensive rangefinder or SLR is completely useless if it's been left at home! So...Carry a camera. Always.
2. A public place
This can be out in the streets or at the beach or inside a hotel's lounge or in a diner place or inside a supermarket or a mall or a school or whatever PUBLIC place. This public place must be visible in our picture. And things must be happening in this public place.
