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

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?

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


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.
