Big Contest(Win 1 Year PM)CLOSEDCLOSED
What honestly humbles me the most when it comes to dA, is that even when I am doing absolutely nothing, and seldom comment on your stuff lately (It's not due to me being uninterested, I just have become super busy lately, and I need to adjust my classwork/dA work) I still average at least 50 pageviews a day. I think that is lovely. While I don't look at pageviews when it comes to popularity, it's nice that my inactivity has made it so I am not forgotten.
So to show my appreciation, I would really like to kick my first year off on dA with a BANG. And that is with what? Making my own contest, with what as a grand prize? A One-Year Premium Membership

WATCHer Feature! Find Yours!Hello, sweethearts! CelestialMemories, here!WATCHer Feature! Find Yours!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I would first like to sincerely apologize about my lack of activity on dA, life is stressful. But I'm going to keep working, and working, to ensure that you guys all have a successful bit on dA with all of the critiques and comments and messages I can answer! I've been selfish, so let's fix that, with first, a WATCHer, feature!
So I have hit 134 WATCHers! And I know someone could easily just collect some icons and deviations and post them here, but I want to do something different!
I will be featuring all of the icons of the deviants, and in alphabetical order to your name given on your profile you can find a deviation of yours which has been featured! Please favorite this journal and show some love to the deviants who were so kind enough to WATCH me!
NOTE: A few deviants will have special messages they will need to see, scroll down to see if your name is listed and click on the link given to find your message.

UPDATE: Contest Now Closed!!!
Hello Members and Visitors!
Welcome to InspireTheUninspired's last contest of the year and first contest of the new year! This contest is going to take InspireTheUninspired through this year and into the next so it is only fitting to have a theme to go along with it! With the help of our absolutely fantastic admins and affiliates we have managed to come up with this prize list! So please give our affiliates and donators some love!!!
Theme: This contest has the theme of 'Memories and Resolutions'. What are your memories of the year gone? What do you hope to achieve in the new year? We are looking for mostly factual deviations but you may write about fictional situations as well, it won't hinder the way we will judge your piece. Interpret the theme h
Apocalyptic Contestsorry I have been kind of quiet lately guys but it's been a while so I think it's time for another contest. I would like to make this contest as big as possibleApocalyptic Contest3 years ago in Personal More Like This
the apocalypse. however you see it. zombie, nuclear, Ragnarok, Rapture, asteroid, whatever comes to your mind when you think Apocalypse. whether you write about how it all ends, what it's like being there, or just plain trying to survive it, I want to see how creative you can get!
you don't have to be a member of the group, but you might want to be so that you can keep up with updates and changes. Please put a link to the group and or this journal entry and mention the contest in the description of your entry. Your entry must fall under the poetry category(this is a poetry group) I will be pretty lenient though. The poem can be part of a picture or accompanied by a picture, but the poem has to be the main focus. your poem can be a short like a haiku or really long
CONTEST...CANCELEDYes, I'm sorry but I have to cancel this contest. I hate to do it-I really do...but if I didn't this contest wouldn't end. I had a lot of contestants and I hate letting all of you down. I know I warned everyone recently that if I didn't have enough contestants I would have to close the contest.CONTEST...CANCELED3 years ago in Personal More Like This
That was quickly solved...but I'm now stuck with another problem: My Judges aren't getting back to me with their scores about your portfolios. Without those scores everyone's only gotten scores in the the teens or twenties since :iconchainedtoinsainity: is the only Judge I've heard from. Plus, when I asked if they could contribute anything to this contest-they didn't say anything! They're obviously not checking back on this contestant list which I didn't HAVE to make in the first place and they're not sending in scores.
The judges are the reason I have to cancel. Obviously, I chose the wrong people to be judges.
BTW the REASON the deadline was October 20th was because that's my birthday!

I've been encouraged to make this a news article, so I'm giving in
This form has taken off since I introduced it to dA, at least among my watchers. I've seen enough creativity come out of it to feel like a contest has the ability to produce some excellent pieces. The form is flexible enough to allow room for lots of interpretation, but rigid enough to still provide a bit of structure. I've never found an easier form to write in - no syllable counting, no rhyme schemes, no nitpicky details to fuss over (unless you want to!). So here it is:
Line 1 - Your color.
Lines 2, 3, 4 - things your color looks like.
Lines 5, 6, 7 - things your color sounds like.
Lines 8, 9, 10 - things your color tastes like.
Lines 11, 12, 13 - things your color feels like.
Line 14 - sum it all up.
I've been fairly flexible with the way I stretch the interpre

WHATS THIS ALL ABOUT?
I have painted a series of pictures that go together. In the past I have been asked about the story behind them, however I have to admit Im a dreadful artist and generally theres nothing too deep in any of my artwork. I see something cool in my head - I paint/draw it! However this series of pictures has most certainly evolved to a point where they could paint images of a fantastic journey. What is it? you decide!

What the hell is a "scratch that?"
An excellent question! This is the biggest thing this group has ever done. It will be 5 rounds of tournament style writing, with varying themes and writing styles! Each round will last 2 weeks! (Dates will be posted further along in this journal.)
Anyone can enter! We're trying to make this as big as possible, so members, non-members and their dogs may enter! Bare in mind, however, that the very first round will be an audition. Only 50 people will then be selected to go through to the competition, so make sure you write to the very best of your ability!
At the end of every round, 5 people will be eliminated. We will celebrate the best poet of that round by giving them small prizes.
That sounds awesome, but what's in it for me?
Prizes, my friend. Riches beyond your wildest dreams, fame and glory.
No, I lied. Here's what is actuall

Why do you love dA's Literature Community?Reasons to love dA's Literature CommunityWhy do you love dA's Literature Community?2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Today, November 3rd, is the last day to send me in your reason!
Love dA Lit is turning one hundred! One-hundred weeks that is. In that time I've really come to appreciate how active and passionate the Literature Community on dA is; this community is truly amazing and I'm honored to be a part of it. And what better way to celebrate than to spread a little love and hand out some prizes? It's also a good excuse for me to hug you all.
So why do you love dA's Literature Community?
Share what you love about the Lit Community, your reason doesn't need to be long, it could be a few words or a few sentences. Be as specific or general as you want!
Anyone can participate. Even if you don't 'include' yourself in the Literature Community you can still send me a note!
November ThankstivityIt is easy to point out the flaws....November Thankstivity2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Cliques, lack of communication, bad art that gets too many views, good art that doesn't get enough views, crappy DDs, and on and on and on. The complaints people have about deviantART could fill a book the length of the Bible, but November is a month for remembering what we have to be thankful for and so I challenge you, Solutions Seekers, to take a look around and find at least three things about deviantART that make you thankful for the community.
Create a deviation or journal that explores at least three reasons you're thankful for deviantART. It can be anything from tutorials and other resources to friends you've made to great art you've stumbled across to a favorite group. Whatever it is that keeps you coming back, I want to know about it.
One entry per deviant.
For this challenge, no mature content please. Let's make
