The Solidarity Contest Stamp 2 by GoodiesForYou I Love dA by GoodiesForYou


Newsletter Run by karemelancholia since april 2007!


Giving some fresh ideas to create, contests are essential to creativity!
Here are somes that are flying around!

First sorry for not making 2 newsletters in june but i was on holidays ;-)



Want to advertize your contest?
Send me a note : "Contest Ad." including PLEASE : link, title of the contest, deadline if you have one & and if you have a specific category (media) lemme know also.

------

Note that i don't publish contests that don't appear on your front page journal at you dA account! I've noticed that usually when contests are not published in your journal (front page of your account) these contests disapeared! I take serious contests organisations!
That's why i prefer that you give me your journal link. A journal can be updated not a news article (unless if you are a dA admin ;-)).
Thanx.

------
:trophy: Need TIPS about How to Organize a Contest?
SEE HERE!


------

And see if you can participate and/or help with any prizes donations!
Even a 'simple' journal feature is great for any contest holder!

And if you want me to be a prize donator please just note me! ;-)

The same if you want to modify your contest listings and/or if you find errors.

------

When there's a specific category/media it is noted, if nothing is specified then it's because the contest include several medium

:kiss: Kare.




= To get more expozure your contest is also updated more frequently in my journal = karemelancholia.deviantart.com…

:postit: TIPS FOR ORGANIZING A CONTEST :postit:



Some basics you should know before you hold a contest.

:greenprobe: Contests aren't made to be popular, forget that;

:greenprobe: Contests are made to stimulate creativity, discover other's art, experiencing new technics, getting inspired, and well winning something...

:greenprobe: First find a theme for your contest, and with this theme gives it a title, it's important for deviants to know what you're talking about and to click the link to your contest!

:greenprobe: Specify the categories (media/galleries) allowed;

:greenprobe: Set the Deadline (giving a deadline is HIGLY adviced);

:greenprobe: Make a journal entry (i advice you to ALWAYS have a link in your frontpage journal to your contest journal entry and to never delete the contest journal entry);

:greenprobe: Make clear rules in your journal/news article;

:greenprobe: Give any informations you think are necessary (such as copyrights, credits), make a lil intro for your contest theme, ...

:greenprobe: Ask deviants you know to be judge(s) if you need them;

:greenprobe: Call for prizes if you need (DON'T SPAM!);

:greenprobe: Make a stamp and journal CSS, if you can't you can ask a deviant you know to make one;

:greenprobe: When all this is completed make a news article!

:greenprobe: Then collect the entries in your contest journal;

:greenprobe: Don't forget to announce the results, give the prizes...

:greenprobe: If you're unsure of what to do then browse the journals of some contest holders and you'll get ideas and directions ;-)


:greenprobe: Most important : Be ORGANIZED and have FUN! :greenprobe:

Any questions? Note me!
