About createbymonth, participating, valid stock and crediting

:star: About createbymonth :star:

We asked; we listened; we came up with a solution. Some members suggested to put on a monthly challenge, the result is a spin-off group aimed for a monthly challenge - createbymonth. createbymonth presents you with a month long challenge, these challenges will be like the weekly challenge by createbyweek but give you more time to create your masterpiece.

:star: How to participate in the monthly challenge :star:

Taking part in createbymonth couldn't be easier! There is no 'joining' involved, you just take part when you want!
:bulletblue: All you have to do is use the selected stock and submit your entry to the Current Entries Folder.
You can enter any amount of times!
:bulletblue: We do not allow people to promote the polls and ask for people to vote for them.

:star: About valid stock and crediting :star:

:bulletblue: We will not accept submissions with uncredited or non-stock images (taken from Google etc). Regarding what is regarded as valid stock have a look at "Of Copyright & Premades" by kuschelirmel and also on this FAQ:
FAQ #217: What are "Stock and Resources" and can I use them in my submissions?
:bulletblue: Please remember to credit all stock artists with a working link to their front page using the deviantART name or avatar code like :devcastock: for CAStock or :iconcastock: for :iconcastock:
:bulletblue: Please also remember to notify the stock artists and to send them a link to your finished piece(s) :aww:

:star: :new: We don't accept any entries or feature artworks containing "stock" from :iconjinxmim: , because that deviant doesn't offer valid stock! :new: :star:


This collection does not have any deviations yet!

What is CBM?

pendlestock, UnicornReality, Amarie-Veneanar and FireFlyExposed bring to you the wonder that is createbymonth ~
Every month we give you two stock images. To make the monthly challenge just a little more challenging, we give you two stock images and you have to use both images in your submission - what you do with that is up to you! We accept any visual art media that either reference or manipulate the image - this does include photography, though obviously sometimes you have to work a little harder ;) ~

Hi there again ... it's been a long time!

As you may have noticed ... the group has grown stagnant. I don't have the time to come up with monthly themes all the time. BUT!!! Hi there again! ... it's been a long time waiting.

A call to the grand people of Create by month

As a grand call out to revive the group (and to take some much needed pressure off me), I would like to invite all members to participate in challenge themes and stock image selections!
Basically, all it takes is a quick reply to this journal with a chosen theme topic and two (that's 2) selected stock images that relate to your theme idea.

I want to start a new round of successful monthly challenges where we can all participate and have fun. Please do help us get the ball rolling!
