Local Folklore--Traditional-Artist's Fall Contest!:icontraditional-artists: is proud to present our Fall Contest for our members!Local Folklore--Traditional-Artist's Fall Contest! by JLDragonfly
Our Theme is:
Now, that means that you can depict nearly everything that is special and traditional in the area where you live: old tales, celebrations, a certain place with a story, etc.
This excludes non-local folklore. As an example: Works showing the ancient greek pantheon (Zeus & Co) will not be accepted - unless you depict a story that connects them to your home.
You want to participate, but have not yet an idea what to do? Here are some ideas:
Ask your family, neighbours and other local people whether they know something interesting!
Is there an annual celebration where you live? Show us how people celebrate it!
How are important stages in life (birth, marriage, birthdays,...) celebrated at your place?
Do you know any myths that are told in your area? Faeries, giants and other ancient beings
Admins Hand picked #8Welcome allAdmins Hand picked #8 by Tepara
Hello everyone and welcome to the 8th monthly news Article.
A few new admin have joined, and a few admin have now stood down, which means even more new faces in the admin teams
The month of August has been a little up and down with the AHP Article due to some of the admin who took part, now standing down, meaning they can no longer take part, as well as dA's birthday taking up a big chunk of a lot of admins time.
There fore this article has less art then normal.
But good things come in small parcles right?
I hope you all enjoy the art admin have picked for you all to see
For those of you who havent been keeping up with my AHP news features, heres what its all about.
The idea of this is to get those unknown artists better known.
So I decided I would ask the admin in dA what art they would like to see featured . But there was a catch. Each piece of art had to 50 favs at the very most. Now I realise some of these may have a little mo

The Forum Newsletter
I see your mouth hanging open like that, and as you can't possibly want to give me head because I lack the appropriate genitals, you must be amazed the newsletter is here again.
There's just something warm and fuzzy about getting, at the time of writing this, 69 's on a newsletter that just makes you want to write it again and again until it's been over a year and people stopped caring you exist and you feel cold and alone and hate the world and then suddenly one month becomes a year and you still keep telling everyone it'll happen soon but you're not really trying because you're still scared and alone and why are you so cold why can't you just buy socks for your poor toes--
Welcome back! That's right, monthly is monthly again here at the Forum Newsletter! Next thing you know all the female forumers' periods
Forum Features #8 - August (Birthdays)Once again, the MN@ team is here featuring the works of dA's beloved forumers!Forum Features #8 - August (Birthdays) by deshrubber
Once per month we'll select one active user in the forums and we'll feature his or her gallery. This is someone we believe represents the forums well with both good forum-abilities and art.
As we're kind and awesome, we also decided to give an opportunity to everybody to get featured! Every month, we'll create a thread in the Deviation Thumbshare Forum with a different theme. This thread will be made into a sticky for easy access. All you have to do is post thumbs from your gallery matching the theme and, at the end of the month, we'll select our favourite thumbs from that thread and feature them in the next news article
The best thing is that the only requirement is that you're an active member of the forums!

A Blurb About Me |
I joined dA back in January of 2005 and I was instantly addicted. Amazed that I found a place where I could share my hobby while I tried to improve on it. Still working on that part, by the way!
I was shocked when I received senior status at the tail end of July/early August 2006. (I was in shock for so long I don't remember the exact date.) Even more shocked in September of 2008 when they decided to actually let me help out with the forums I've become hopelessly addicted to. 4 years later I'm back to being a senior and trying to get back into being a more active again.
