The contest deadline has been extended to June 10th! There will be no further extensions, so get your entries in ASAP!
It's a common complaint...
Particularly for our newer members. "I've set up my profile...now where do I go?"
May's contest aims to answer that question. Your challenge is to create a tutorial aimed at deviantART's new members that shows them as much of the site as possible. Think about when you were new - what areas of the site did you discover only after blundering around? What areas did someone else point out to you? What do you wish you had known as a new member that seems like common knowledge now?
You must be a member of #SolutionsSanctuary to enter. All join requests are automatically accepted.
All entries must be created specifically for this contest (uploaded on or after May 10th).
Entries should be uploaded to the Stock and Resources > Tutorials > DeviantART Tutorials gallery. Journals should be posted in the Journals > Art News > Resources category.
All mediums are accepted. Please include stock credits in your artist's comments if applicable.
2 entries per person; collaborations between 2 deviants are accepted and count as one entry per collaborator.
All entries must abide by deviantART's Submissions Policy and Terms of Service.
Any deviant who is not a judge may enter the contest.
If you're not a member, first join the group by clicking "Join Our Group". All join requests are automatically accepted. In the artist's comment of the deviation, please include a link to this blog entry as well as credits to any stock used (if applicable). Then, submit your piece to the Navigating dA Contest folder in the group gallery. Entries must be approved by staff before they're accepted, but that is just to weed out spam.
Entries will be judged on Quality, Creativity, and Adherence to Theme. We are looking for tutorials that help a newbie get the most out of deviantART in a format that is easy to understand.
