November is approaching fast and Mirz123 and I are happy to announce that the November NaNoEmo will be running this year!

What is NaNoEmo?


NaNoEmo is a fun emoticon challenge hosted every November to match up with NaNoWriMo in the literature community. Over the last 3 years we have had a fair number of emoticonists taking part and some fantastic emotes appearing all through the designated month.

The main purpose of the challenge is to encourage emoticonists to make emotes throughout the month of November. The most common challenge undertaken is to make 30 emotes in 30 days, though others choose to set alternative targets which better suit their other commitments or art style.

Whilst our previous NaNoEmo event hosted earlier this year was restricted to only visual purpose emotes, the November event returns to the 'normal' format where any emote style is accepted. So it is completely up to you whether you opt to create a pack, work on an expression meme, design a collection of chat friendly emotes, work towards a visual purpose scene or dive into contests and projects.

Taking Part


If you aim to take part in NaNoEmo then join the group and leave a comment on the journal below. We’ll add you to the list of participants so others can check out your emote(s). It may be useful to make a separate gallery folder to help people keep track of your entries. If you have one, post that below too and we will place it next to your name.

Once you have finished an emote(s), upload them to the 'featured' folder at NaNoEmo so other group members to check them out. If we receive enough entries we will aim to do a weekly recap  to show off a range of the brilliant pieces submitted. We will then round off the month with a news article to show off some of Mirz and my favourite pieces from the month.

You don’t have to take part in the entire month. So if for any reason you want to sign up part way through November or need to drop out, then that is ok. We will edit the list throughout the month to help keep it as up to date as possible.

Emotes made for NaNoEmo can also be entered into other contests/projects that may occur during the month.

Tutorials + Resources


For those that may not have much experience with Emotes, Emotication has a handy list of tutorials and resources which may assist making your art pieces.

It would be brilliant if you could help spread the word about this event. We would love to see members throughout the community (and even beyond) taking part, so please help promote it through journals, polls, Twitter or simply show it to your friends.

We look forward to seeing everyone sign up for this event, and eagerly await seeing what wonderful pieces you come up with! :eager:
