The DNMT are currently on hiatus. We're hoping to come back soon in full force!


What is a Monthly Theme and how does it work?

A Monthly Theme is something we announce at the beginning of each month, according to which you can come up with a design/illustration/photograph to submit to our… (DesignersNexus Monthly Themes folder). One outstanding submission will be selected at the end of each month to be the main Feature on our homepage throughout the following month. Additional prizes may be included and may vary from month to month.

Rules & Regulations for participating:

:pointr: Please submit your entries to the… (DesignersNexus Monthly Themes Folder). Only deviations that 1) adhere to the current theme and 2) are submitted before the deadline will be accepted.

:pointr: Only one themed entry per member per month is allowed.

:pointr: Unless stated otherwise in the theme announcement, variations on a theme may not be included in the same deviation.

:pointr: Please include DNMT[name of month] (eg. DNMTMay) in the names of your themed submissions. This is to clarify the distinction between themes from different months, as all will be placed in the same folder.

:pointr: DN administrators are allowed to participate, but only unofficially. Their entries go into the one of the Admin Gallery folders and do not qualify for the member feature.

:pointr: If you want to suggest a theme, feel free to note me at: Rallya

:pointr: Monthly Themes challenges are not compulsory --- you don't have to participate if you don't want to. In the meantime you can still submit works to the other folders throughout the month.

:happybounce: HeartHello, DeviantArtists! I'm deviantARTDasGnomo, the new Community Volunteer of the Design and Interfaces gallery. I'm currently open for DD suggestions in that area and Official Guidelines have been already uploaded to this journal:  Design And Interfaces DD Guidelines💪😎✌️ Powerful hellos to everyone! I'm @DasGnomo and I'm the Design & Interfaces Community Volunteer at @communityrelations, I'm in charge to bring to your awesome attention amazing DeviantART works via: features, articles and Daily Deviations! I'm a humble illustrator and graphic designer from Chile living in the US. I've been working on these areas for 13 years now, I'm happy and honored to have these new responsibilities (thanks to @ekud @Moonbeam13 and @JenFruzz for trusting in me for this). I'll work hard to do my best for the community! I'm extremely grateful in advance for all the DD suggestions you'll be sending me from this day on 🙏 however there are certain objective parameters that I'll take into account at the moment of featuring a Daily Deviation.I can only take suggestions from the Designs & Interfaces gallery and all associated sub-galleries/categories.Make sure that the deviant hasn't already received a Daily Deviation within the past 6 months. FAQ #313:How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation? Please send me ONE note per suggestion/artist/deviationThe artist/designer is still active on DeviantART (must be active for more than 30 days)The piece you are suggesting is not part of an ongoing contest (in such case, you should wait for the contest to end, in order to suggest it)The piece you are suggesting is not infringing DeviantART Copyright PoliciesPlease, let me know if you want to remain anonymous as a suggester; if you don't specify I will assume that you want your name listed on the DD feature.Please only send your suggestion to ONE community volunteer. Here is the list of all the CV's and the galleries they are in charge to feature.You can self suggest (explaining why you deserve to be featured in your note. Also, avoid the spam) and try to give preference to other artists as well.I'll list here some objective characteristics of a DD worthy Design & Interfaces deviation: High QualityOriginality/UniquenessFunctionality/Problem SolvingExcellent use of the basic elements of Design and InterfacesSend me a note with the Title: "DD SUGGESTION" with ONE suggestion only. Don't suggest by comments.Include the deviation's :Thumbcode: in the noteClick SEND. And that's it! 👍I won't necessarily answer to all the DD suggestion notes since sometimes they are too many to keep count, so featuring your suggested DD will remain as a surprise.Any suggested deviation can also be feature in futured journals, being a DD or not. So keep suggesting deviations, please.Remember to check today's Daily Deviations!Fav, comment and share this journal with your friends! 😘

I humbly invite you to check it out, if you got any amazing deviation in mind to be suggested, please send me a note.

Also, I want to invite you all to Mrs-Durden 's "I Challenge You" 2019's edition activity for a chance to win amazing prizes like 1 year core membership, points and more! Get in the "Design and Interfaces" category and you'll be receiving very interesting and great challenges from me! ;D

I Challenge You: 2019 EditionDear all,
The veterans among you may remember a huge challenge competition I first launched back in 2015 called "I Challenge You". The first time around, the premise was that deviants were paired up and would give each other a challenge to be completed within a deadline, for a chance to win a prize as a duo or trio. The second time around, each participant was assigned a Community Volunteer who would give them a challenge to be completed. 
If you're curious, you can go look at the old journals here and here. The second edition blew up almost immediately, if I recall we had around 300-400 sign-ups. Well, it's been years and it's time to bring back this challenge game again! I'll try to make it happen once per year, hence why this is "2019 Edition" ;)
The idea explained in a few wo

I'll be waiting for you all and have an amazing day today! :D Love

ForeverCosmosArt Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
honestly I dont know how to re  submit... >.<
sunshishi Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
You just submit your deviation again - to the suggested folder.
velvet021 Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
That's okay, it's pretty simple.
Go to your correspondence page and click the "Withdraw" button on the piece you had previously submitted.
Then, go click on the art that you wanted to submit, bring up the "Submit" tab, and submit it to the appropriate
folder of the group that you wanted it to go to :D

I hope that helps!  
ForeverCosmosArt Featured By Owner Edited Aug 2, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I already took it out of the correspondence :s
velvet021 Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Then all you have to do is go back to your art and submit it to the group again  :D
you're already halfway there
