Since there are often less gifts received at this time of year (due to less being sent in Nov-Dec; many people are busy with holiday things), I decided to make the December and January contests one joint one.
However, this does mean we could use a couple more prizes to make up for the fact that the competition will be a little stiffer. Art/craft prizes of any kind are particularly welcome, but we could also use more features as we don't get so many of those offered these days. Winners will be announced in a little under two weeks - if that's too soon for you to be able to donate, we could also use prizes for February as there are none
at the moment!
Any new members who don't know how our contests work? It's pretty simple. Everyone who made a gift that was received either December or January is automatically entered - and winners are voted on by you guys!
What to do
Past winners:Jan-FebMarchAprilMayJuneJulyAugustSeptemberOctoberNovemberFor 2011 winners see list here
- Visit the December and January gallery folders and take a look at the deviations you like.
- You have five "votes" which you may distribute as you like between any number of deviations across both gallery folders: five votes to one; one vote each to five; two each to two and one to another; three to one and two to another, or whatever.
(You don't have to use all your votes, but if you don't want to use them all it helps to say that it was deliberate.)
- Send a note to #Artcrossing entitled "VOTE DEC-JAN" with your list of deviations and the votes, e.g.
Something by ~someone - 3 votes
Snowman by =Santa - 1 vote
Llama by #fella - 1 vote
- You may vote until February 16th.
- You can't vote for yourself - although you can of course vote for gifts made for you! Voting is open to all members
