We accept digital and traditional artwork. To ensure everyone gets a gift of approximately equal value, we have a few requirements:

You may be asked to edit your piece if it does not meet these requirements.

How do I submit my gift?
Mention our group and the person you are giving the artwork to in your description and add the artwork to our group gallery, within the deadline.

What if I cannot submit my gift in time?
Please notify us as soon as possible and we may offer a 1 week extension.
Those who fail to notify us or miss the extension deadline, will be excluded from future events (unless they make a surrogate- or random gift).

The 1 week extension deadline has passed and I still have not received my gift!
A surrogate will be appointed to draw you a new gift within 2 months.

I have received my gift, but it does not meet the groups or my wishlists requirements.
Note us! We will ask your partner to modify the artwork (if we haven't already).
