Welcome to the deviantART related monthly challenges!

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!

WOW! Okay this has taken me forever to look through. So many fantastic entries I'm actually blown away by the amount of love and dedication put into all of these pieces. Some of you guys really dug deep into the meaning of the song, and even though it wasn't a requirement at all, reading all of the meaning that you guys pulled out of it was so unique and interesting.
This is really the true 'art' in art, seeing how even though we all hear the same thing, we all interpreted it in different ways. Different lyrics stuck out for different people and some of the same lyrics were taken in different ways.
Exactly what I had hoped for when I first made this contest, you should all be very proud of yourselves,
The Golden Hour Photography Contest - CLOSED!More Like This
Hello and Welcome to my second Photography Contest!
Thanks to everyone who suggested ideas for the next contest, their time will come, too.
I'm going to go with christycameasromans's idea: The golden hour.
This way no one can complain ("It's not spring/summer where I live...")
and everybody's happy!
What is the golden hour?!
The golden hour (also known as magic hour)is a period shortly after sunrise or before sunset during which daylight is redder/more golden and softer compared to when the Sun is higher in the sky.
The Rules - read them!
No b/w pictures, which is obvious I guess.
Again, you're entry does not have to especially made for this contest, but I would love it.
So your photographs have to submitted after June 2014!
One (1) entry per deviant!
Like last time, leave a comment with your entry or note me!

Daily Deviation Suggestion Drive!Have you seen some awesome work in your favorite galleries lately?More Like This
If so, then you're a prime candidate to join this year's Daily Deviation Suggestion Drive! The project is all in the name. Our community volunteers need the community's input to find and feature great artwork from all the galleries. They need YOU to point them toward amazing work! So, get your mouses (or touchscreens) in gear, and get suggesting!
How It Works
Simple! Suggest a DD to one of the community volunteers. A full list of all of them and what galleries they oversee can be found in :faq18:
To keep track of all the suggestions, but also keep things fun and secret for people who might be featured, just add me (LiliWrites) into the send-to line when you create your suggestion note! I'll add all of the deviations that are suggested to my favorites and have a big feature of them at the end of the month.

See, two things May has in common are Star Wars and Stroke Awareness Month. And there are two types of stroke. The one most people know about is hemorrhagic stroke; this is when a blood vessel in the brain bursts, depriving an area of the brain of blood and oxygen. This is usually very sudden and violent and produces the classic symptoms of facial droop, slurred speech, and weakness or paralysis on one side of the body as soon as it happens. This is the most recognizable form of stroke and also the most dangerous, difficult to control and repair, and most likely to lead to immediate death. If someone shows signs of dizziness, sudden terrible headache, or disorientation, ask them to smile, raise both hands, or say something. If only one side of their mouth goes up when they smile, they can't raise a hand, cannot form intelligible words or cannot fin

Deadline has been extended!
Welcome, one and all, to my latest contest journal! Did the title catch your attention? $30 is a lot of smackaroos, ain't it? Now that I have your attention, I'd like to direct you to the contest details in question.
The objective of this contest is to draw a book cover for my novel-in-progress, Bialo Lassedim.
The title translates to "Voice of the Demons". In this cover, I would like the main characters, Cresil and Ivo. There's a couple of situations for you to choose from to draw the cover in. First, let's give you a bit of information about the characters so you know what kind of people they are before you draw them.

Once the infection begins who knows what mutations will take place! Each species is different and even between those of the same species colors can change, note the examples of two traits all should have (all should have red antennae tentacles on the forehead a couple have learned to tuck them into their hair).

The Winter Contest has arrived. Welcome to the first contest to bring in the new year with on Concept Cookie starring Jack Frost! He is said to be the personification of crisp, cold weather. He originated long ago throughout tales to personify winter. There are different takes on the folklore surrounding him around the world. In Russia he is known as Father Frost or in Germany, he is rather Old Mother Frost. In American folklore, Jack Frost is depicted as younger and kind yet mischievous. He has the ability to control and create winter conditions, most notably, he creates the icy flake patterns on windows. Now is your chance to capture this winter spirit in a concept.

Can you spot the difference between and :icongladlikeplz
If you hover your mouse over it, you’ll see that the first is a link to a deviation (http://fav.me/d5judp5), while the second is an icon for a special type of account called a PLZ account.
PLZ accounts are deviantART accounts made for the sole reason of being an emoticon. Anyone can make these accounts. (For more information on making PLZ accounts, see this previous Project Educate journal http://fav.me/d3jjwiv.) The deviant chooses an account name that represents the image he/she wishes to display, and usually adds the phrase ‘PLZ’ at the end, so other deviants are aware that that account exists to be an emote (in the example above, the account name is “gladlikeplz”).

The European Parliament - Why Should I CareMore Like This
The European Parliament
Why should I care?
"Yes, why should I?" - that's what I was wondering about not so long ago. I simply did not care about the European Parliament or, to be more specific, the European Union. As an Austrian I just took being European for granted, being part of the union itself, for granted. I never thought about what that meant though, for me all this "political mumbo-jumbo" seemed so far away, almost unreachable.
It also seemed to me like all political issues the European Parliament was dealing with with more important issues than the "first-world problems" some Austrians might have.
When we started learning about it at school I still found it uninteresting, it did not help or change my opinion in the slightest.
For me, it was also normal to live in a democratic country and in a democratic union where you could just elect the people you thought would represent you best.
What did change things was when we visited Strasbourg last December. It was simply amazing for

For America, the Fourth of July is coming up. A time of patriotism and family gatherings and fireworks. But for the rest of the world, it is just another day. But Freedom and Liberty is something we all can relate to. Freedom is the dream of every person on this planet. Not just for your country, but to be who you are. And for many, freedom has come at a price. Freedom is about war.
There are two weeks til the 4th of July, so I hope this gives everyone time to jump on the #CSSChallenge this week. poserfan and I have noticed there is a shortage of themed skins for this and it really is the perfect opportunity to make one. Many people may want to get into the festivities and use a themed skin for the occasion.

Will you be my friend?The funny thing about people knowing you, is that many people want to be your friend.More Like This
"Will you be my friend?" is one those questions I get the most.
It's also one the questions I have to answer with a negative answer the most, because I don't like lying to people.
Like I've told in some of my earlier journals, my life didn't overflow with friendship nor popularity when I was younger. It was quite the contrary. I wasn't anything near popular, to the point that most people didn't even want to have anything to do with me. As the kid that got bullied, the few that dared to get close to me, more or less put their social status in the group at stake by even talking to me. And as a result, I guess I valued their friendship a lot. After all; I knew what they risked.
Coming from that sort of situation, friendship has always been a very important but at the same time mysterious matter to me. Something not be

Hot Topic selling artist's works without permission
A Tumblr post has been circulating, where Hot Topic is selling artist's works as T-shirts in their store, including popular fan art without the artist's permission, deviant artists included. It caught on wildfire when one user linked to deviantART's Submission Policy, stating users gave permission to dA by agreeing to their Terms of Service thereby allowing dA to sell it to third party royalty free.

How to: Preview images for personal SkinsThis 'How to:' article explains how to add preview images for your skins that you either created on your own or have not been added with the help of the install feature.More Like This
It makes only sense to do this with skins that don't get changed though.
The benefit of it is not only a preview image, but also that your skin doesn't get lost anymore.
Skins that haven't been installed and will be deleted from your skins list, will usually be removed from ALL journals that have used these before. So if you delete a skin by accident it could happen that you end up with a lot of blank journals, all formatting is lost and the content might be a mess as well then.
With the method explained below this can be prevented as well.
Everyone who has more than one personal skin installed, knows the pain of not having a preview. Of course you can go by name, but sometimes it just easier to have that little preview to find the skin you search for more easily.

Hello! I’m Nancy, but most people know me as Anoya. I live with my two Norwegian Forest Cats Dio & Dex in a little country called the Netherlands. I like to do photography, but I secretly also love to crochet amigurumi. I have a huge passion for Animals, Plants & Nature (APN) which might be quite obvious since I’ve been the APN Photography Community Volunteer twice for over two and a half years in total. I still feature Daily Deviation suggestions in my journal since all of them are worthy of being featured and deserve extra exposure.

T he Deviousness Award, bestowed in recognition of exemplary membership and an outstanding spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community, has recently undergone a reevaluation to provide a focus and a re-definition as to just what Deviousness truly represents.
The award is given once per month to honor a deviant who has gone above and beyond in their services to the DeviantArt Community. The 189 recipients of the Award thus far have brought something to the community that was not there before their presence, and it's our duty — and honor — to publicly recognize their efforts in doing so.
Early on, Deviousness was given more than once per month to a deviant whose invo

Hi! First, I hate writing introductions because I never know what to say My name is Danielle but everyone calls me Danie. I was almost a Stephanie but some friend of my mom's gave birth first and stole the name. I don't resent them or anything but it's interesting trying to think of yourself being called something other than what you know. I know some awesome Stephanie's but I really feel I was meant to be a Danielle. I'm a Gemini, I have a cat and a bird and I used to think I was tall, until I married a giant. Now I spend my days hearing him humming the 'oompa loompa' song at me.
