Thank you for your suggestions last week. We love hearing from you about what you like and how we could improve!
But now, we're back to the contest action! This week, we're having a photography contest! We want to understand a bit more about where you come from and your hometown.
Your challenge is to pick your favorite thing about your hometown and submit a photograph of it!
For example, my favorite thing about my hometown is the nature, so I would submit a picture from my Gallery such as the following:
What do you most like about your hometown? Is it the people, the weather, the wildlife? What one thing stands out the most? We want to see!
Remember that this is a photography only contest! We don't have many contests for the photographers, so we wanted to give you an opportunity to strut your stuff. It's always helpful to include in your deviation description that your entry is for PremiumMembers. Feel free to submit as many

News to know: beware of phishing scams!There is currently an individual or group of individuals who have created a fake deviantART login page, and they're using hijacked accounts to continue to share the URL of the fake page.News to know: beware of phishing scams!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Please spread the word:
If you click a link that directs you through the deviantART "There Be Monsters Out There" outgoing link page and you unexpectedly return back to deviantART while logged out, check the URL of where you are before entering any of your details.
The proper URL for the actual deviantART login page is: deviantart.com/users/login. (Note that there is nothing between "deviantart" and "com" except for a "dot.")
If you find yourself unexpectedly logged out after clicking an offsite link, immediately check the URL to see if anything extra has been added -- this would indicate that you are in fact on a third-party website masquerading as deviantART. For example, if the URL reads something like deviantart.[som

A mere eleven years ago, deviantART met its humble beginnings. Since that time, we've grown to be the world's largest online art community, but even a site as massive and established as deviantART had to start somewhere. We never forget those few small sparks that launched deviantART to be where it is today, and that's what we're celebrating during our birthday season.
For this year's community event, we're embracing the idea of starting small and creating something amazing from just a few quick sketches. We've started this work for you and challenge you to finish it with the pizzazz that only the best art community in the world co

Stock and Resources: Policy ClarificationThe Stock and Resources community is an integral part of deviantART, both for having an active community of its own as well as providing high quality stock to all deviants.Stock and Resources: Policy Clarification2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
As this community has grown so much over the years, so has the amount of invalid stock and resources that have been provided by some deviants. The Stock and Resources community feels like this reflects negatively on them, the volunteers have a hard time trying to teach people about valid stock and how to use it correctly, and it gives an appearance that deviantART Staff tolerate so-called “art theft” or copyright infringement.
In this article our aim is to reinforce our policies regarding stock and stock use and clear up some misconceptions.

In short, invalid stock or resources are anything which you do not have full permission to upload. This incl
