Contests around DA: February Edition


Here at CRCommunityProjects and DeviantsShowcase we want to make sure that you are aware of many of the contests that are going on all over Deviantart, so every month I will compile all of the contest submitted to our monthly folders here. Be sure to submit your journals into the month prior to your contest! I will also be searching for other groups and journals that advertize contests as well and featuring as many contests as I can find.

 I will also feature a few projects around dA, just so they also get a little more attention.

Share the love this holiday! Valentine's Day Art Exchange 2017

Thank you by hase-illustration

So in summary, if you would like for your contest to be featured by me Amarantheans send me a note.  So get your contest journal to me in a note or in the folder. Just make sure you put it in the correct month.

Bullet; Pink Oh btw, sometimes I get notifications of contests that have started after my initial posting of my journal. So, go ahead give it a favorite and check back after a week or so to see if any have been added.

A NEW Daily Deviations Process !?
Hi i write this journal because i have a bright or bad ideea :iconlaughsplz: .
And I would like to share with all of you my ideea and the main objective is that this ideea be seen by the deviantART Staff.
Everyday i like to suggest Daily Deviations :giggle: some CV's know that :ashamed:
I spend a lot of time searching NEW and/or Undiscovered artists with awesome stuff who deserve more exposure and why not a Daily Deviation ! :eager:

Feature Friday!
Holiday's starting and I'll have more time for stuff. Sooo, Feature Friday is back on track :la:

This is an upcoming project I've been thinking about for a few days.
The idea is to feature anyone who wants to be feature, no matter media or level. This is to give anyone a chance to get noticed here on DeviantArt! :heart:
:bulletblue: How does it work? :bulletblue:
By sending me a note with the title "Feature Friday" and include the thumb of ONE of your work you wish to be featured. You may also include 1 of your friends work to surprise them.
:bulletblack: (What is a thumb?
Thumb is short for thumbnail and shows the deviation as a small image link. The thumb code looks like this: :thumbnumber: - : thumb485401656 : without spaces of course.
You can find the thumb code for your deviation

Past dA Contests 2010 - 2000

Community Projects: deviantART CONTESTS from Years Past:
Part of "My Gallery" is being able to DD from any deviantART contest that is officially over and the  prizes awarded. Perusing past contests is a great way to find wonderful deviations that may have been overlooked by the community. Using the search under "Contests" the sub-cats are listed by year, so it is just a matter of choosing a year then choosing the contest to see many, many wonderful works that had been entered into past contests.
Bear in mind, the contest gallery is HUGE! There are many, many contest listings under most years that dA has existed. Perusing all these contests would take a rather long time, so I'll just pick and choose a FEW to feature from each year (links to the contest galleries provided).

Is this group dead?
What a shame, I just discovered it and it has had virtually no activity for the last year.   hmm

Julie and Sarah's wedding invitation
Hello, I've been writing a bit with some original characters and have posted an invitation in my gallery for participation.  The main characters in my story will be wed on October 28, 2017; their ceremony and reception will feature a circus performance and carnival.  I am inviting all deviants to participate by dressing either themselves or their characters in 1920s-30s era circus costume and tagging the upload with #JulieAndSarahWedding.  More info is in the invitation description.

Afternoon, I have a small project going on for deviants who'd like to get their work commented on. First 35 participants gets their entire gallery commented on. But ita not a contest, its just a really cool challenge. My goal is to comment 10,000 times before July 28th. What folder would be best to put it under? Or how does one become featured in this group? Im really looking for alot of exposure so people can sign up.
Iduna-Haya Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hi :) I wanted to submit a journal, but it seems all the folders are closed. How can we submit things?

I left a similar comment back in December on the journal that explains submissions, but it seems that the person who wrote it (and probably gets the notifications) hasn't been online in almost a year (Submit Journals Directly to #CRCommunityProjects)
Amarantheans Featured By Owner Edited Mar 12, 2017
:hug: So, I have noticed changes in the group, I am not sure what is going on. I will try to find out. In the mean time if you would like feel free to send me any journals announcing contests and projects that you would like to have featured in my monthly announcement, via note. Or you could just make a comment here in the comments section and I will do the same. (I would have answered this earlier but I was waiting to see if someone with more power in the group would do so. I am sorry for the delay in responding :heart:)
Iduna-Haya Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh hi! Thank you for your reply ^^ Well I two regular journals that I thought would fit in the group, and at the moment I also have a community contest going on haha. So it's quite a lot. 
- My 'Find Your Way Around DA' journals that collect resources from around DA, and also a few on the web. Each focusses on a different topic
(ex Find your way around DA #1: Pose References)
- My Nova journals, which each month feature new deviants that have joined in the previous month (these journals are generally pretty small though, depending on how much time I have)
Nova X

And there is the contest. I wanted to celebrate some personal goals, and give something back to the community at large ^^ So it's a 'draw your own OC' contest, where deviants can draw their own characters doing an 'action', to encourage them to get out of their comfort zone. People from around DA have donated some amazing prizes, and I think it's really going to be a lovely contest :)
[open] Contest/Challenge! Draw your OC

Contests around DA: March Edition

I have added your contest to the above contest journal. I can add your resource journals to the featured projects next month, although I am not set up with permissions to approve new staff to the page for journal submissions.

If you want to expand who gets to see your resource journals you could talk to DeviantsShowcase about being added to their journal features :D
