Reach your next creative goal!

To help deviants achieve their creative evolution, DeviantArt is awarding over $20,000 to artists like you! Yes, you!

1. Brainstorm // 2. Comment // 3. Cross your fingers

Comment to Apply

For eighteen years, DeviantArt has been where art starts: a place for artists of all walks of life to learn and grow together. In that time, we’ve witnessed countless artists’ skill level evolve as they’ve honed their craft with the support and encouragement of the DeviantArt community. But that’s only the beginning.

As we approach the launch of DeviantArt Eclipse, the next phase in DeviantArt’s own artistic evolution, we want to celebrate artists who evolve with DeviantArt. If you have an idea or project that you want to undertake that will help you reach the next level in your artistic evolution, DeviantArt is here to help provide the tools and resources you need to succeed.

Tell us about the project you want to undertake, and what resources you need to get there. In turn, we’re going to award a grand total of $20,000 to some deserving deviants to make some of these projects happen!

Use this template to share your creative ideas in a comment on this journal.

Project Title: Come up with a creative title for the project or goal you want to achieve!

Project Description: Tell us what your idea is. What do you want to accomplish, and how do you want to do it?

Project Plan: If chosen, what steps are you going to take to complete your idea, and how will you share your completed idea with the world?

Project Budget: What tools do you need, and how much, roughly, will it cost (in USD) to make it happen?

Comment to Apply

The Awards

Award recipients will be chosen after March 31st, 2019, and will be awarded the resources required to complete their ideas (be it equipment, art supplies, etc.), up to the amount of the prize they won. You can request up to $5,000 as part of your idea budget, so don’t be afraid to put your best idea forward! Two larger awards are guaranteed to be granted; many smaller awards will be granted as well!

In addition to the $20,000 we’re awarding via this journal, a Facebook Live event will also be held on March 22nd at 2:00 PM Pacific Time, during which an extra $2,000 in items will be awarded.

Amount Awarded

Judging

Awards will be granted to eligible and qualified entries, on the basis of: (i) intent, (ii) ability to accomplish the idea/goal put forward, (iii) creativity, and (iv) the impact achieving the dream will have, all to whatever degree the judges believe to be appropriate in reaching a decision.

Award recipients are encouraged to share their projects as they unfold and/or conclude.

All deviants age 13 or older who have not been banned from DeviantArt are eligible to participate. If a deviant deactivates or is banned during the Devious Dreams campaign, they are no longer eligible to be an award recipient.

The Devious Dreams campaign begins on March 18, 2019 at 12:01 PM Pacific Time, and ends on March 31, 2019 at 11:59 PM Pacific Time. Award recipients will be announced on or around April 3, 2019.

Read the Official Rules

Elevate your artistic evolution with DeviantArt!

To be honest I do not want to enter this for the following reasons.

WHAT I NEED THE MOST?

I need a position where I can gain income towards my areas of studies. Which is illustration, graphic design, photography, some coding. However I am primarily illustration. Cartoons, video-games, animation, etc.

No amount of funds given to me will help me.  I do not want money I want work.

I literally put myself into harms way to get tools and software I use for my works. I made good one time with overtime pay from work I took. It was terrible and ungodly. Imagine being in a room trapped with everything wrong with society and your still the same kid who raised his hands in the classroom.
.........

I do not like NSFW/18+ material at all but I have become accustom to it, and evolved above that method of thinking. I respect all art people and see the struggles they have both men and women. Part of the reason why I do photography is to keep me outside ( away from the computer ) while using something that I actually learned. Same reason why I enjoy lifting heavy lights. I might have a self-destructive nature but I want to live in peace.


You can see my work is primarily anime based. Insult me if you want. I have tons more material yet to upload. Tons more. Point being is that in a real working environment you get paid and get coached and not be treated like a machine.

......................................................

I refuse to let my skills and abilities dies. All that matters in making a living being an illustrator and collecting tax returns. Being able to raise a family and own a house. That is it. For me it is a struggle to live in peace especially when everybody is pretending and playing hostile against my peace

I know that is why I did not post so soon. I understand the idea of the contest but honestly I took a job ( at the time ) to get the materials I needed. I did not beg my parents and honestly I am tired of begging somebody who is selfish.

Well, I did not win but I am already living in my dream to continue the projects just before this event started.
Does anyone have the same opinion as mine?

My current projects are a real-time strategy game called Photonsurge and a comic called Vela and the Big Invasion.

I think a lot of us would love to see more events like this in the future for sure, but I think now you guys should remove this post or disable further comments. There's still many people applying even though it has ended already, so it would be wise to just delete the post or disable the comments now that the winners are all announced.

This was a huge waste of my time.

My fault for ever thinking DeviantArt would help in any way.

Project Title: The Art of Depression

Project Description: This is a program which can help those people having a mental illness or disorder. I know a lot of people are struggling, having deep thoughts, almost committed suicide. But I think this program will help them and stop the stigma about depression. Depression is not really easy. But this project help to voice out what depressed people feel thru artwork. Let their artwork talk, speak, and touch people. You can't create a million words to explain or share what depression feel or look like. But thru artworks, it will help them speaklife, speak everything.

Project Plan: If chosen, I know a lot of mental disorder groups in our place, I can reach them out to join and help me for this project. I know there will be a lot of people who will benefit on this. I can also ask help for Department of Health to conduct seminars, art workshops, and art party. Which all those participants will create any art they want.

Project Budget: Canvass, Papers, Brushes, Pens, Pencils, Paints, venue, souvenirs. Roughly, around $500.00 - $1000.00.

the contest ended but man this is so good. If places like that actually existed ( drawing to relieve mental health issues ) I wouldn't be at the mental state I am now. It's so disgusting that people say they have depression just to be "cool" or "trendy" like no. I wish I could help in some way.

Yes, sadly. I wasn't able to read the deadline. Yeah I hope there will be groups or organizations to conduct such activity. I really want to help, 'cause I know the feeling. I feel you, too. Yes, Mental issues is a serious thing. It will be an honour to work with other with this activity.
