These are just some of the many OC contests around! This is not an attempt at a listing, but rather a rotating feature. If you have a contest you'd like featured, see the submission info at the bottom of this post.
- All three slots are open in this rotation!
Submit to be Featured
We will advertise 3 contests at a time to make sure everybody gets ample attention. If there are too many entries and they're all ending too soon to be put on hold for featuring, we'll choose the three we think will be the most interesting to our members. In addition to that, we have some rules to keep the feature relevant to our group:
- Only contests where participants draw or write about their own OCs will be advertised! In other words, we won't advertise anything we wouldn't run.
Contests must already be accepting entries and have at least some prizes listed. We will not advertise contests that aren't even running yet.
The contest must be held via dA. It's fine to hold the contest on multiple sites, but we must have a hub page on dA we can link to, whether it's a journal, a news post, or a deviation.
We will advertise individual, specific contests only! No contest groups or contest listings. Groups devoted to OC contests are welcome to apply to be normal affiliates (listing-only groups are still not allowed, as we only accept affiliates with member-submitted galleries).
You can submit your requests for advertisement to us via group notes. Please fill out this form:
Link to the contest's hub, probably a dA journal
Subject (a brief summary of what the theme/goal is, e.g. "Draw your OC in period clothing")
Prizes (keep it brief, e.g. "Commissions from 10 artists" or "500-1000 points")
Start and end dates (can be approximate)
This is all just to make it easier for people to see at a glance what the contest is about, so don't worry about details or exactness.
