First, the apology: If anyone had their deviations withdrawn, that was me being the inexperienced administrator I am and not knowing what the button was for. My bad! I asked the group faculty to invite the deviations in question back to make up for it.
And now, for the announcement:
It has been decided that we are going to do a collaboration contest, hosted quarterly so that there is one every three months! Willing participants will be working in pairs that the group faculty will assign based on a balancing of skill to try to even the odds. In order to get this started, we will need volunteers for the offering of art prizes for the winners! It will not hurt to donate point for the contest by way of the donation widgets any of us may be using for this purpose. Once we have enough points to hand out as prizes (and willing volunteers to make free art as a prize for each winner), we can get this started!
The theme will be announced when we are ready to roll! When we are, may the best artists and writers win!
