No updates, just wanted everyone to be reminded!

Hello, hello!
It's come to our attention that many people haven't been reading the requirements for our contest, so if you are in the process of creating an entry, please take the time to reread the theme below so you don't waste your time or get frustrated at having to start over. It's a shame that we're seeing really quality works but we cannot accept them for this contest (mainly due to the lack of characters shown in the illustration).

If there are any questions you may have, feel free to comment on this journal or note the group.

I can't wait to see more entries! Thank you for reading and good luck!

Also note that the contest has now been extended till August~

Hello fellow members,

Don't forget we have a contest running until the end of July, please refer to our Contest Journal if you wish to know more . Spread the word, and hopefully you guys are working hard on those entry/ies.

It has come to our attention that we've been getting a lot of mature content artworks coming in.We DO NOT accept anything that falls under deviantart's mature content.We have a Guidelines Journal that states what we do and do not accept in our group and a Submission Guide journal which states what folder is best for your submission.

Also ORIGINAL art is simply your own original characters, everything else belongs in the FANART folder. If an artwork features your OC and fanart characters, either folder is acceptable. Please don't be afraid to note the group if you are unsure on where to put your art.

If you have accidently submitted something in the wrong folder you can withdraw it following these steps in this How to Withdraw Journal

Submissions for more contributors will be open soon so keep an eye for that. Hope everyone is enjoying their short break for school/college~
