#CRLiterature Presents: Back To School ContestBack to School!
We've not received any entries for this contest. Please can you express interest if you are planning to submit, otherwise we may have to consider cancelling this! Thank you.
It's September, which means another school year has begun. The break of the summer has finally settled and all the kids, equipped with their little rucksacks, are ready for education!
For young children, school is about learning and exploring those basic skills we now take for granted as we get older. We learn them through a variety of lessons, and reading is essentially one of those. Do you remember those stories you read when you were in Primary or Elementary school?
Did you ever read Magic School Bus? The series, by Joanna Cole, featured a class of children and their eccentric teacher Ms Frizzle travelling on a bus to the most exotic of locations to understand how things worked- from inside the human body, to a water system and even outer space. The

During the month of November each year, Movember asks men across the world to grow a moustache (or Mo') with the aim of raising vital funds and awareness for men’s health issues. Mo Bros are helping to change the face of men’s health by effectively becoming walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by promoting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health. Together, we are truly changing the face of men’s health.

Better hurry if you want to enter!
Welcome to the monthly challenges!
Each month you will be given a theme and two categories from the deviantART related gallery. You then have one month to create something for it. In which way you interpret the theme is up to you, but it has to be for one of the categories chosen.
For each category there will be one winner and one runner up.
As September already started, there will be only one category/winner/runner up for this month.
From October on, we do it like explained above.
Theme + Category
When working on your entries, try to be creative and don't just do the first thing you have in mind. Some categories will be more challenging than others - that's for sure - but maybe it's a good way to get out of your comfort zone and try something new. Maybe you will like it!

WANTED: ALL BOOS AND GHOULS FROM FAIRYLANDAttention Citizens of Fairyland:WANTED: ALL BOOS AND GHOULS FROM FAIRYLAND2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The King of Fairyland is maniacally seeking out his subjects, and no one in the Kingdom is to be spared. Clandestine meetings have been arranged between the Monarch and key figures throughout the realm. While no one knows for certain why the King is demanding all citizens report to His Majesty, rumor has it that Death has visited the Royal Family this cold, dark Halloween season. No one knows who was killed or in what fashion, but gossip has started to fly.
Are you a witch, wizard, ghoul, monster, or other citizen of Fairyland?
If so, the King would like to recruit YOU to help guide the Royal Detectives as they seek to solve the mystery surrounding the death in the Monarchy.
If you are a citizen and you would like to help give clues to the detectives (game players), simply note Halloween-HQ, tell us which magical creature you are (please be creative), and state that you would lik
UPCOMING CONTEST:Detectives needed to solve murderThe King of Fairyland is seeking first-class detectives to solve a top secret case for the Monarchy. According to an inside source, a member of the Royal Family was brutally murdered last night, though the King has been loathe to comment on the tragedy. All Royal affairs seem secretive and obscure as darkness falls, both literally and figuratively, upon our magical kingdom. All we know is that a great search is underway for any and all detectives in Fairyland and surrounding regions. No doubt, the detective who successfully completes the unknown task to be set before him (or her) will be rewarded richly.UPCOMING CONTEST:Detectives needed to solve murder2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
A successful detective will be secretive, able to work independently of others, and able to ask the right questions of the right people. He or she will need to know good from bad, right from wrong, lest they get tricked onto the wrong path. He or she will need to work quickly, as the King would like to wrap up this case within three we
Contest: Crossovers! As kids, we often mashed our toys together, regardless of Copyright. Superman would take command of G.I. Joe to defeat the combined forces of Doctor Doom and the Decepticons, while Barbie took a break from her idealistic lifestyle to become a Pokemon master. And the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles got recruited into Starfleet and taught Spock the wonders of pizza. (And from the furor arose Mister Rogers in a blood-stained sweater.)Contest: Crossovers!3 years ago in Official DeviantArt Contests More Like This
And thus, the Crossover was born. It's something we never really outgrew, either. To this day, seeing our favorite characters from different stories meet and compete is a guilty pleasure that we all like to indulge in. So now's your chance to indulge yourselves for prizes!
Complaint Challenge Contest!Complaint Challenge Contest!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
We got our complaints out in December 2012. Now, 2013 is about doing something productive with them. I am not going to sit and grumble about my pet peeves. Neither should you!
Anyone who knows me should have been suspicious from the start of Phase 1 because complaining is one of my own complaints. (And you saw this trick last year!) That's right. I complain about people complaining. Silly, yes? Well I decided to do something about it with this challenge.
I hope everyone enjoyed sharing their gripes in Phase 1 because it is time for Phase 2! And Phase 2 is open to everyone, even if you didn't participate in Phase 1, or decided to change what complaint you'd like to address!
Complaint Challenge – Phase 2
The challenge in a nutshell: Pick one of your dA complaints and do something proactive about it. Work toward a solution or improvement in a positive way.

This month at projecteducate a group of Community Volunteers have worked hard to create gallery description articles for almost every Gallery here on DeviantART. Throughout August we will be bringing you these articles covering the definitions of galleries from Photography to Photo-manipulation, Artisan Crafts to Digital Dolls. If you have any questions about where to submit your work here on DeviantART then this month will be your chance to ask. Just head over to projecteducate, send us a note or comment on one of the articles as and when they are posted.
A whole month of articles at projecteducate deserves a celebratory contest, so we're going to host one that will hopefully get your creative juices flowing!

Welcome to the next challenge of CRTextAndTypography

Trajan Replacement Challenge
The main objective of this challenge is to evaluate the appropiate interaction between meaning, words, lettering and typefaces. The goal is to create a type treatment, or typographical logo, that focuses on one word or phrase as its main focus.
The idea is to find a movie or tv show logo that uses Trajan and give it a possibly more appropiate type treatment instead. You will find Trajan is used in a lot of movies and it has sort of become "The Hollywood Font".

I believe that many current and former volunteers will agree with that sentiment and I feel it's important to explain a bit about why I believe this to be true.
Maybe you're not aware of the variety of ways people join the volunteer team. As per FAQ #85: Can I be a volunteer on deviantART? many people send in an application to express their interest in joining the team and I go through those applications and s

Forum Features #36 - September: Senses!Once again, the Community Relations team is here to feature the artworks of deviantART's beloved forumers!Forum Features #36 - September: Senses!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Once a month, we select one active member from the forums and we feature his or her gallery. This is someone we believe represents the forums well with both good forum-abilities and art.
As we're kind (and awesome), we also decided to give an opportunity for everybody to get featured! Every month, we create a thread in the Deviation Thumbshare Forum with a particular theme. This thread is made into a sticky for easy access. All you have to do is post thumbs of your artwork that match the theme and, at the end of the month, we select our favorite thumbs from that thread and feature them in the next news article.
The best thing is that being an active member of the forums is the only requirement!
