Community Feature Project: If I Could DD

Community Feature Project: If I Could DD

Didn't you wish you could DD some works sometimes because you found them amazing and thought that they deserved more exposure? Well, this is your chance! 

This December we are encouraging you to feature your fellow deviants with a journal of artworks that you would feature as a Daily Deviation (commonly called "DD") if you could. So let's embrace the Holiday Season and spread some good cheer by joining in and featuring our community!

How does it work?

  • Create and publish a journal feature of images that you would choose for a Daily Deviation Feature from your preferred gallery. (i.e. Fan artists and/or people who enjoy Fan Art would feature from the Fan Art gallery.)
  • When your journal feature is live, link it back to the appropriate Community Volunteer's Community Feature Project Journal in the comments area. (i.e. If you choose to feature Fan Art, then you would need to link to my journal.) 
  • After all of the features have been linked to your Community Volunteer's journal, we will publish a master journal feature of all the community features!

Dates and Times

  • Start Date: December 5th, 2016, PST time 
  • End Date: December 19th, 2016, PST time  (All features must be linked to your gallery CV's journal by this date.)
  • CV Feature Dates: December 20th - 31st, 2016

 Here are the links to the other CV's journals:

  • If a category isn't represented officially in the project, don't hesitate to get creative, find pieces and feature them anyway!
