As most of you probably remember, in August we hosted a daily challenge here at @projecteducate
. It was called 31 days of art, and you can find out all about it in this journal
Well, the challenge did extremely well. I was genuinely afraid we'd get close to no participation, but wow was I surprised!
40 deviants participated in the challenge! The majority of these 40 people participated very frequently, if not every single day. Indeed several people made 31 entries! There were so many entries, I stopped counting when I started to get close to 600. We had a huge variety of art mediums: literature, photography, videography, gifs, traditional art, digital art, artisan crafts, etc.
I want to thank all participants for making this challenge so fun to host. I loved logging in to see everyone's daily entries. You guys have beautifully creative minds and are inspiring artists.
Before I announce the winners of each prize, I'd like to take the time to highlight a few participants and their entries.
As you can imagine, since there were 40 participants, and 31 challenge days, I cannot feature everyone's entries, that'd make this journal unbearably long. But I do want to highlight some entries! If you want to see more, all participants in the challenge are listed/linked in the winners section of this journal
It was always a pleasure to see @BlackCloverCreations
' entries, and for some reason I particularly enjoyed this entry for the theme "weather"
I was highly amused by @Pixlhaufen
's entry for the theme "temptation"
found ways to make each prompt work with small figurines - this one I thought was pretty darn awesome
I really liked this trippy and futuristic photo for the theme "inside" - who know a dryer could look so cool
I really enjoyed the amount of detail in @Subhojit2du
's entry for the "breakfast" theme
I found @psto1464
's entry for the "water" theme pretty darn unique!
I love foxes, so @MeinFragezeichen
's entry for the theme "fierce" really stood out to me
This entry for the theme "fierce" is probably one of my favs of the entire challenge
All entries from @Ejderha-Arts
were great, but I found this entry for the theme "hidden" especially cute :3
I found @TheKikkaKibaz
's entry for the theme "galaxy" so beautiful to look at!
I found this entry for the theme "routine" quite amusing
Every day I wondered what today's mouth would look like, and what it would say. @MysticSparkleWings
certainly kept things interesting!
Ok I gotta stop otherwise I'll keep going forever, I couldn't include everyone in the highlights, but please know I adored ALL of your entries
Here are the winner categories, and who was competing in each section!
Please note that although it was rare, a couple of times I could not accept an entry, because it was posted on the wrong day (later in time).
A random person who submitted an entry for 26 to 31 days will receive a one-year core+ membership OR the equivalent in points
A random person who submitted an entry for 16 to 25 days will receive 3,000 points
A random person who submitted an entry for 6 to 15 days will receive 1 month core+ and 500 points
A random person who submitted an entry for 1 to 5 days will receive 250 points
Please keep in mind that I'm not the one to fulfil the prizing, I send off the information and it can take a few weeks for prizes to be given out. Be patient please!
The winner of $20
As you might remember, to incentivise everyone to focus on quality as much as quantity, I said I'd be offering $20 via PayPal to a participant who submitted consistently high-quality entries!
The person I chose for this is...
I really just was in love every day when I saw one of those mouth entries, so much thought and creativity went into them, and the execution was always stellar!
Congratulations and thank you again to everyone!
I think we'll be doing another daily challenge for the month of November, with lots of surprises in how it's going to work
(days that win you double points, for example!)
