Fella's Film Contest!It's not long to go until the deadline for Fella's Film Contest! If you'd like to submit your film creations, remember that although the contest began on 5th January, you are welcome to submit films which were made BEFORE that date too. So if you have awesome film in your gallery that's 3 minutes long or less, you're welcome to submit it now! Here's all the original info for the contest...
Fella would like to invite you to be a part of a new contest, one that looks at a medium that is often overlooked on deviantART, Film.
Since before the 1900s film has been a part of people's lives. Today, feature films are created with huge budgets in mass of $200 Million+. But, often times short films, which do not get seen as much in the United States (but are more readily available in some other countries) are some of the most impressive films.
We would like to invite you to make a short film. All the details are below, so get on it!

Bring Your Type to Life - A Typography ContestIt is time for another Typography contest! The theme of this contest will be…Bring Your Type to Life - A Typography Contest2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Bring your Type to Life
This may sound abstract at first, but to keep the theme as open as possible, I choose a rather abstract title. There are many directions in which you can go. You could choose an anthropomorphic direction, where you breathe life into letters and give them human or other animate characteristics. Another route would be to create the letters out of living objects, such as plants or animals.
Which direction you choose, maybe even a third or fourth one, does not matter. What matters is that your letters are brought to life!
What kind of letters you bring to life, words, glyphs or sentences, is 100% up to you. This contest has a more visual approach, so you will not be judged on the creativity of the meaning you choose to give to the letters. However, don't rush it! Even one letter can appear completely different than another. Be wise with the letters, word

Film, Animation and Flash Mini-Contest!Hello folks! So this month is Flash, Animation and Flash month for the ArtHistoryProject.Film, Animation and Flash Mini-Contest!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
So me and SqueakyToybox have been discussing about the idea of having a joint contest! We struggled for a while to find a good theme that would apply well across these mediums. So then we thought deviantART is full of members across the world. Even myself I'm from the UK and SqueakyToybox is from Australia so we're literally halfway across the world from each other.
So we thought a good theme to set you all is:
We would like you to create a piece of work using animation, video or Flash and we will award prizes for each gallery! So we will have a prize for a winner and runner up for film/animation and the same for Flash.
You have until the end of this month, February 28th to send all your work in and we'll announce winners shortly after! Now we appreciate that's not exactly a lot of production time for this sort of wor

Texture Your World ContestTell us the story of your world in textures!Texture Your World Contest2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
We are surrounded 24 hours a day by objects that have texture, they may be smooth or bobbly, old or new, bold, bright, shiny or dull. You might see a texture every day and never notice it until you start looking. Do you sit at a desk that's textured, or pass an interesting tree on the way to work or school?
We want you, in the form of a triptych (thats 3 images forming a larger image see example here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triptych ) to tell us the story of your textured world. Each individual texture should stand on its own, both as a useful resource and as a cohesive part of the whole story. What story you tell through your texture triptych is up to you - but they must be textures that tell a story of your world in some way.
There are 3 categories for this contest, each of which you can submit to twice.
These are textures created digitally by

Planetary Mythology Photomanipulation Competition!Mythology of the PlanetsPlanetary Mythology Photomanipulation Competition!1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome to the latest "dark" photomanipulation contest, supported by Community Relations here on deviantART. This contest will challenge you to think outside of the box, for you will have to not only create something, but you will need to do a bit of research and think about why you are creating it. Are you ready for a competition that is out of this world?
Before we go any further, let me clarify that PLUTO COUNTS!
What do I have to do?
Choose one of the planets (or Pluto) in our solar system, listed below. Moons or suns can be a part of the larger picture, but they do not count as your god/goddess.
Your job is to create a PHOTOMANIPULATION in which you show a myth around a planetary ruler (that is, the god or goddess after which the planets were named).
The gods/goddesses can be Greek, Roman, or other.... but they must be planetary rulers.

This article marks the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 1000 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 other
