Seniorityheader 2 by fourteenthstar
This article marks the latest announcements detailing the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 900 deviants holding the highly saught after ` -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.


So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community. 

Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out above the many others who deviate to be recognised in the crowd.

Today, we present to you the following deviants who have all been awarded Seniority as part of our quarterly community recognitions. They have all been nominated for their efforts in the community by multiple deviants, Staff and Volunteers. 


Congratulations everyone! :dalove:

Announcing the deviantART Creative Grants


At deviantART, we have spent the past 11 years building a place where artists can share and discuss their work and get inspired by the work of their contemporaries. A noble cause, for certain, but we would like to be so much more to our beloved community of brilliant creatives. Starting today, deviantART will also be a means of inspiration in an entirely new way with financial support for art.





On 3 month cycles, deviantART will accept applications from artists seeking to fund art-related projects. A panel called the Creative Grants Board will pick those projects that they believe will benefit particularly from a Grant and give those artists the support they need to make it happen. The lucky few who are chosen to receive Grants will also be given a beautiful accolade on their deviantART Profile Page to celebrate their success.






All applications in a given cycle will be reviewed by members of the Board fairly and Grants will be given to as few or as many as the review panel deems appropriate within the budget of available funds. Grants will range between $250 and $750 per application for the first cycle of funding, with a total funding of $10,000 available.












  • Installation of an art exhibition
  • Additional artist materials or resources to support
    the production or public display of art

  • A piece of work that requires specific tools
  • Costs to run a creative event


If you're looking for money to pay your rent, go to classes, upgrade your Group to Super status, buy a Premium Membership, or pay off your student loans, this is not for you.

Spirit Day 2012

Wed Oct 17, 2012, 1:50 PM
    "Ultimately, I want Spirit Day to make just one person feel little bit better about his or herself, to feel safe enough in their own skin and to be proud of who they are" - Brittany McMillan


In memory of the young LGBT people who lost their lives to suicide, Brittany encouraged her friends to wear purple on a day in October -- a day that came to be known as Spirit Day. Since then, GLAAD has helped turn Spirit Day into a global event that inspires millions of individuals, celebrities, TV personalities, media outlets, companies and schools to wear purple in a stand against bullying.

While Spirit Day does focus on the LGBT community, I believe that it's anti-bullying message is relevant to every community.  It only get's better, if we take the pledge to make it so. 

Practice compassion and understanding, and treat others how you would like to be treated and we can make a difference. 

Show your support for this anti-bullying message on October 19th by participating in one or more of the following:

:bulletpurple: Turn your devID or your avatar purple
:bulletpurple: Create Spirit Day artwork and submit it to our Spirit Day Gallery. Submit your artwork that encourage themes such as acceptance, love,  kindness, inclusion, diversity, embracing differences, compassion, empathy, and of course, purple!
:bulletpurple: Show support for fellow deviants
:bulletpurple: Be awesome

DeviantART Birthday Gameshow is starting in just FIFTEEN MINUTES!

We're looking for game players to come and join in our deviantART Birthday Event! In just a short while  3wyl and myself are hosting an interpretation of a British game show called Pointless. The idea of the game is that you  have to guess the least popular answer to a multiple answers question. You will be awarded points accordingly, those with the most points will win - but you will have used pointless answers to get there!

 We'll have pre-judged the least popular and most popular answers by asking a panel of CVs beforehand for their responses. Want an example?

Name a Film Starring Tom Cruise


 
Okay so Mission Impossible is a really high answer and if you said that one, you'd get lots of points. Which isn't good! If you said Rain Man - you'd possibly be getting less points. But if you said something like Endless Love or Taps, then you'd be hitting on an answer that not many people know. Therefore you'd get little to no points - and have more chance of winning. Make sense?

The aim of the game is to get creative, and also that the first answer you google for - won't
necessarily get you the winning point. And we know you use google. Oh Yes.  So hopefully this will cut down that unfair advantage.

Interested...???
There are MANY prizes to be won and each round will have a prize of some sort for winners! So there's nothing to lose in getting involved. Come on in to #CommunityRelations pull up a chair and get comfortable!


When, Where, Time?


IN #CommunityRelations
AT 12pm PST/8pm UK time
ON 7th August 2012
