So here we are on August 7th, 2003, just 3 years after this little wet dream opened up for public consumption. Who ever would have guessed that we would have just surpassed two million deviations and all the interactivity that one could ever imagine? We never thought that deviantART would turn into what it is today, but it did, and here we are after the "terrible twos", now a whopping three years old! If you want to win free stuff, then read on for more details on our birthday bash.

So how are we to thank everyone for the wonderful work that they've put into the site? By none other than our traditional free giveaways! Rather than us accepting all the presents on our birthday, every year we give things away to cool deviants who visit the site on our birthday. Here is what we are giving away:

:bulletred: :bulletblue: :bulletgreen: :bulletpurple: :pointr: deviantART subscriptions
:bulletred: :bulletblue: :bulletgreen: :bulletpurple: :pointr: Prints from deviantPrints
:bulletred: :bulletblue: :bulletgreen: :bulletpurple: :pointr: Software
:bulletred: :bulletblue: :bulletgreen: :bulletpurple: :pointr: Amazon Gift Certificates

One lucky individual will receive:

:bulletred: :bulletblue: :bulletgreen: :bulletpurple: :pointr: WACOM Graphire2 Tablet

So, how does one win themselves one of these nifty prizes? Simple: visit deviantART throughout August 7th and we will randomly select deviants to receive the prizes from the list of those who are online at the random time that we decide to "raffle" off prizes. If you happen to be online during the "raffle", then we will randomly select one of those deviants online and they will be the lucky recipient of whatever prize we are giving away at the time.

It is that simple. Just visit deviantART throughout the day and you are eligible.  Ensure that you pay close attention to the news for hints of other neat things coming up.

From the whole staff, we want to thank each and every one of you for doing your part in ensuring the lasting success of the future of art: deviantART!
