Doctor Who Contest is open!Hello everyone. It is now time for our last contest of 2013 to begin.
The "Doctor Who Contest" will run until December 26th, 2013. This is an open media contest, which means every form of art is available for it. The winner of this contest will receive 400 points! Every member of this group, including staff can submit ONE piece to the contest folder. No screencaps obviously will be allowed, nor will desktop themes.
Since our last contest kind of went badly, each entry will have to be accepted by 2 separate staff members, so it could take a couple hours from the time you submit an entry, to the time it's accepted.
Since this is a very specific contest theme, we are going to try the constant voting process by the members of DA World Wide once again.
Good luck everyone, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask and I will update the Blog to answer anything I missed!
On a personal note, due to circumstances beyond anyone's control, I have
RIP Harold Ramis. 1944-2014Harold Ramis passed away early this morning at the age of 69. Ramis helped define my childhood, as the Ghostbusters franchise was an enormous part of my life, and still is. His movies are some of the best I have ever seen, and Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day are two timeless classics, and my personal favorites. Upon reading the news, I felt completely gutted. I went to New York City in 2009, and the very first thing I went to see was the firehouse used in the movies. If anyone has any works or photos of their own pertaining to Harold Ramis or his work, please let me know, and I will add them to mine.
Thank you Harold for helping to shape the adult I am. You will be missed!
Serious staff needed!Hello everyone,
Recently we have undergone a cleaning out of inactive staff, along with 3 of them choosing to step down. We are now down to half staff due to this. So, if you are interested in becoming part of the DA World Wide staff, please let me know!
Note me with the following information; :icon11thdoctorwho:
-How long you have been on DA
-Your location in the world (time zone purposes, good to have staff all over the place!)
-Your experience as a staff member on DA
-How often you spend on DA in the course of a week
We are cracking down hard at this point. Having to remove half our staff due to inactivity sucks, but it was necessary. If you are serious about joining us and are willing to put in 2-10 minutes of your time every day or other day... let us know. Thank you!
Digital Art Contest now open, 350 point prize!PLEASE NOTE!!!!!
In order for your entry to go into the contest, it MUST be submitted to the "CONTEST - Digital Art" folder. I have noticed a VAST amount going to the Digital Artwork folder, which I can only assume means people aren't paying attention. Just wanted to point it out!
Our next contest is now open and running!
DIGITAL ARTWORK is our theme this time around. There is a 350 point award for the winner of this contest. The rules are as follows;
-You have until July 6th at 10pm EST to submit your entry into the contest folder titled "CONTEST - Digital Art."
-The work must be 100% digital art. No photo manipulations or works with several types of media allowed.
-You can only submit ONE ENTRY.
-If you submit incorrectly to the contest folder, you will not get a second chance.
-You cannot change your submission.
Also, you cannot use someone else's work! Every single contest, I have to remove several entries of images taken direc
Let's clear the air here, shall we?Now, I'm not going to make this a total bitching blog, at least I will try not to. I will not name names, and I will not have a filter on this. Here goes....
This is a group for ARTISTS. We are one of the most dominant and viewed groups on DA today. Also, unlike most groups on DeviantArt, we don't post just once every month or so to show we have minimal effort. We get submissions taken care of in a timely manner, and no one has to wait days or a week to get their work approved like most big groups.
I work over 40 hours a week. I still spend 10-20 hours a week working on this group, let alone the other 31 staff members and the hours they put in.
In keeping a group for artists, we have certain rules in place. The major part of it is... your submissions must reach DA rules and requirements. That means, no spam, ads, blogs, adoptables or memes are accepted into this group. Why? Because none of them are art. Adoptables? Yes, they can be, but we do not give free advertisement. If you wish to
Updates 11/13/2013Hello everyone!
We are staffed back up and ready to go! I think we ended up with over 100 people responding to the blog... lemme just say... WOW. Between the blog and the notes exploding, it took days to get through it all.
Now then, we are going to be starting our next contest within a few days. YES... it will be Doctor Who. NO... I don't care if people don't like it.
Our first contest was open media on ANYTHING you wanted. Our last contest... well... sucked. It went on too long and we had maybe a 0.2% turn-out for it. This time around, we're doing what I want to do, because it's the 50th anniversary of Who, and I want to see what everyone's made of for it!
We have our first paid advertisement, and while it took me a while to get it up, here you are folks, please read!
If you wish to advertise, we do require donating 10 points, and THEN we will put it up in a Blog. Putting up ads in the World Wide comments will be removed and marked as spam. Look at it this w
Want a feature?It's time to get membership rolling here at DA World Wide.
From now until the countdown hits 0 on October 20th for the deadline on the Apocalypse Contest... you have a chance to get your work featured in our next Blog.
I am asking every member of DA World Wide to advertise us on their own Blogs... to spread the word, and to let everyone know that we are the #1 place on Deviantart. We do not turn people away... we do not tell anyone their work isn't "good enough," and we do not sit on our butts for weeks or months without updating our fans. We are the MOST interactive spot on this website and will always be.
Now, if you decide to help us and spread the word, ask your friends who join us to credit you in a reply on this blog. And remember; They MUST reply, because we will have no idea if you referred to them us or not unless they do. Now, I will keep a running list of who gets credit for the referrals, and I will be showcasing the works of those folks in our next Blog. If you get tons of
Traditional artwork contest rolls on!Pencils & Paints... Inks... you have as of this posting 1 week and 5 days to submit your entry to the contest folder!
I would like to ask everyone to invite their DA friends to come check us out and join in. Post a blog, send them a note... let's all get the word out and keep this place the center of all things DeviantArt for all time.
You guys rock!
"Pencils & Paints" Contest Rolls On!We're just under 3 weeks away from the submissions being cut off. If you're interested, the countdown is on the main page of the group! I think this is our most successful contest yet, I can't even keep up with the amount of submissions compared to getting them polled for the rounds of voting. I think we've gotten more so far than our last 3 contests put together.
To answer some questions from the last blog;
-ANYTHING traditional goes. Pencils, paints, inks... the name of the contest is designed to separate it from other mediums.
-Doesn't matter if it's color or black and white.
-You can only submit to the contest folder once.
-If you wish to submit something that is already in the group, you need to remove it first and then resubmit it.
And please, folks, vote!

* This will be the final extension. funCatty and I decided upon the extension so that we can get as many entries as possible (the more, the merrier.) I'm sorry for making you all wait a bit longer for the results, but we just want a variety of art and styles to choose from. I've also placed a lot of my money into this contest, so I hope that this extension allows at least a few more people to be able to enter! ♥
YEAH GUYSSS contest time!! First things first - we are going to have TWO categories you can enter for, and 3 places for each. Let me list them!!
Also, if this wasn't obvious - PRIZE MONEY & POINTS WILL INCREASE AS WE GO, HOPEFULLY MORE BONUS PRIZES CAN BE ADDED AS WELL
The theme for this contest is that you have to draw funCatty's and my persona to celebrate our 3 year friendiversary. Still confused? More info ahead!

FEBRUARY CONTEST! [Closed]Check out the winners here!
:iconcheerplz: You guys voted, and the winner for this month's activity is a themed contest. It is a little late, so we're extending it a small bit. More info on that in a minute!
This contest's theme is WHITE DAY.
"In Japan, Valentine's Day is typically observed by girls and women presenting chocolate gifts (either store-bought or handmade), usually to boys or men, as an expression of love, courtesy, or social obligation. Handmade chocolate is usually preferred by the recipient because of the perception of sincerity, effort, and emotion put into a home-made confection.
On White Day, the reverse happens: men who received a ‘honmei-choco (本命チョコ?, chocolate of love)’ or ‘giri-choco (義理チョコ?, courtesy chocolate)’ on Valentine's D
Cornelia Hale hypno contest (Closed)Hello Everyone I just finished my 1st major Premium account contest earlier so I had to finish that before I started our contest here ........................... Anyways I would like to welcome everyone to this groups first official Cornelia Hale hypno contest worth a grand total of 55,000 points or 700 U.S. dollars worth! I wanted to make this contest my biggest ever and it will be and more over it will be the best one in group history, this will be the first of two major contests I hold during the Spring/ early Summer the contest will last until May 10th I understand it's Cornelia Hale's birthday in the comics (which I don't follow I have never liked the comics I'm a series fan first and believe whole heartedly in the animated series being better than the comics...), but a friend of mine here told be about that date so I thought it would be a respectable date to end the contest. This contest will follow rules I use in all my contest for W.I.T.C.H. so if you have been in a contest

Contest The Colours of Renewal 2014 CLOSED:icontransparentplz:
Contest - The Colours of Renewal 2014*
Hello to all members of TheFavouriteShowcase
As usual, as we celebrate our anniversary (4 years now) the time for our contest has come!
It's the renewal season, after a cold, damp, grey Winter (I know, not in the South Hemisphere - but you continue to have good weather there so you will be with the right mood to participate too).
Let's welcome the Sun, the blue skies, the warm weather with our annual contest "The Colours of Renewal"!
What do I want to see on this 4th contest?
The same as the previous years:
Vibrant colours! Warming sensations! Brightness! Joy!
Again we are welcoming "The Colours of Renewal" and you can participate with Traditional Art, Digital Art and Photography.
Only members can participate, so if you aren't a member just join us.
Take in consideration that this is a contest - to be fair, YOU (who are participating) have to vot
Contest Announcement~I am officially announcing my first contest, i have planned this for a month and finally i can officially announce it
The idea of this contest is simple, draw one of my OCs Crow or Fox or both if you feel inspired!
They are my original characters. They are creatures with magic but that doesn't make the very special because they live in a world where many things are magical. Also they live in a forest. The place they live in has no cities or technology, only clans of different magical creatures. They have absolutely no contact with humans either although humans do exist in this world, these creatures just stay away from them. Fox is cunning and composed, while Crow is easily manipulated and sincere. Fox is blackmailing him and keeping him under her thumb because she wants to keep him close to her and that is the only way she knows how.
here are images of them for inspiration
Design A Dress Contest! (CLOSED)WINNERS HERE

So get your entries in fast! If I reach the people entry limit before the deadline, I will close the contest before the deadline and choose a winner then.

To depression, for creating days without endWake up to the realization that you've been awake
for seconds, minutes, hours.
You've been awake in this warm, dark room
and you don't know how long it's been
but now you're conscious
and it starts again--
the pain, strong and steady, in your chest.
You gain consciousness in this too warm morning
and your thoughts whir in endless loops
because it's either that or face the weight in your chest.
Light breaks though the window, soft and unwelcome
but you take it as a reluctant gift--
a new distraction from the feelings awake in your chest.
Awake, but not conscious.
So you think yourself in circles a little while longer
waiting for those quiet pains
(the constant reminder)
to gain consciousness.
Keep in Touch!
