What is the Secret Santa event?
The Secret Santa event is the holiday event (usually near Christmas) when people sign up to give gifts to and receive gifts from each other! In this case, the gifts will be artworks you make. The participants will be both givers and receivers. The fun thing is, each participant will know whom they will send the gifts to, but they won't know who will give those gifts for them!
may participate. It doesn't have to be Christmas-themed.
Since all clubs are Disney-related, we are doing Disney artworks only.
Crossovers with other fandom are allowed as long as there is 1 Disney character. However, the Disney character must be in the focus of the picture.
Marvel and Star Wars don't count as Disney (even if they belong to Disney). Only movies with the Disney opening logo in it count.
Disney TV series, cartoons, and live-action movies are allowed.
No mature drawing (no nudity and violence). Please keep it PG-rated.
Please do a new artwork. No old deviations are allowed.
Fill out the questionnaire below. You can use a stash or post in the comments.
After the sign-ups are done, the admins (
) will match the Santas with the receivers and send you a note about it.
You may now choose your recipient! After the signing-up is closed, you can see the list of participants and choose 3 recipients you'd like to send a gift to. The mods will assign only 1 to you. Remember, if a recipient is popular (meaning many participants want to give to them), you may not get your intended recipient.
You can choose not to fill this option though. The mods will then assign you to your recipient.
