Shout-Out ProjectThe "inspiration" idea has been somewhat altered.
Is there a deviant that means a lot to you, someone who inspires you or is a great friend you can rely on? Were you never really sure of how to say "thank you" for what they do/have done for you?
Why not give them a shout-out?
Post a heart-felt journal (something much more in-depth than a regular feature) dedicated to them, stating what you are thankful for (or how they helped you, how much they inspire you, or just how they're an all-around amazing person), and maybe include some of their work or what they do in the community. The journal can summarize all that is awesome about them. If you have a few deviants in mind and wanted to include them in the same journal, that is perfectly fine. And please don't feel pressured to be too personal; just write what you feel comfortable with.
If you'd like to get involved but wish to remain anonymous, I will gladly take notes and post journals with what you would like
CLOSED - Points drawing - 5 winnersEdit: I apologize for the lateness, but here we go.
The five selected numbers are - 654, 64, 541, 599, and 100!
Thus the winners are...WitchieCat, bAkiKA, ehmurarld, kumadi, and MOMOryuuta
- - - - - - - - - -
I'm looking to get rid of some points. I don't have a use for them, so I figured they could go toward others who do. 655 points divided up between five deviants - that's 131 a piece.
If you would like to take part, all you have to do is fave this journal. If you would like to the points to go to someone other than yourself, please leave a comment. The five numbers will be drawn on Thursday.

Printable GiftsGreetings, everyone.
I would like to do something in the coming months, and I could use some help if you're interested. It involves Project Wishlist. Prints make a wonderful gift - it's awesome opening your mail and finding one there. So this would be a great way to brighten the holidays.
So, if you are interested, your help would be greatly appreciated. Help could come in the form of point donations or by simply spreading the word. I'd love to get this project off the ground a bit (it's been dormant for some time).
So far there is no set number of prints that I'd like to purchase since the price range varies. I'm leaning toward 20, but it may be less, it may be more. There are different factors to depend on.
The deviants will most likely be selected randomly, but suggestions may also be taken.
Tentative deadline will be around mid-December.
Thank you for r

Upcoming ContestI have been toying with the idea of hosting another photo manipulation contest (you may have seen the recent poll). I won't give out the full details yet, but here are some basics.
Media - photo manipulation only
Run time - to be decided (will last a couple months or so, though)
Theme: The Senses
There will be three winners (first, second, third) and some honorable mentions
A max of two entries per deviant
All stock must be credited (whether personal, purchased, etc)
That's all I can think of at the moment. If you have further questions, don't hesitate to ask. I'd like to have everything covered prior to launching the contest.
Also, any and all donations will be appreciated. If you're able to donate anything, feel free to drop a comment. A point donation widget has been placed on my page for anyone who wishes to contribute points. The contribution will be split up among the win

Two editions of What Digital Camera appeared today and I'm pretty glad they did because I flicked through and immediately landed on a link for a free online Photography magazine. You can open it up yourself Right Here and I haven't tested but I believe it works in all countries. The reason I'm sharing it is because they have a nifty forum where you can share your own photography with the chance of them picking it to publish either in the online magazine or the 'real' shop versions. What have you got to lose right?
On This Poll Over 180 deviants voted to answer Would you Suggest yourself for a Daily Deviation? many also commented. I was amazed - re

Unrestricted Use DirectoryEDIT
Just an update. I may have doubled some up but its near midnight here so Ill sort any doubles tomorrow!
Many years ago, the amazing LawrenceDeDark created the original Unrestricted Stock Directory. A place for artists to come and find a list of stock providers who offer their resources as unrestricted. This is an update on an old list (2009, eep!) <3
Unrestricted stock can be used for both personal and commercial projects, but it cannot be redistributed as stock. You are not required to obtain permission prior to using the stock off site or in DA prints. The only requirements are that the stock provider be notified and credited.
1. You have to give credit.
2. You have to let the provider know.
3. You can not redistribute as a resource
Thats it, Thats as easy as Unrestricted Stock gets.
To be added to the list please NOTE me with either
Unrestricted stock account or unrestricted stock folder as the title please. This makes it easier for me.
