Galleries month


Update!


Just a few days left to enter! So don't delay!

This month at projecteducate a group of Community Volunteers have worked hard to create gallery description articles for almost every Gallery here on DeviantART. Throughout August we will be bringing you these articles covering the definitions of galleries from Photography to Photo-manipulation, Artisan Crafts to Digital Dolls. If you have any questions about where to submit your work here on DeviantART then this month will be your chance to ask. Just head over to projecteducate, send us a note or comment on one of the articles as and when they are posted.

A whole month of articles at projecteducate deserves a celebratory contest, so we're going to host one that will hopefully get your creative juices flowing! Since the aim of this month is to reduce mis-cats and help deviants re-classify their work correctly, we thought that a fitting them would be …

The "Miscat Superhero" Contest!



Read on for more information!

The Theme


The theme is to create your own Miscat Superhero!

This is open to several galleries on DeviantART including the following:

  • Digital Art
  • Customization (Emotes!)
  • Traditional Art
  • Photography
  • Artisan Crafts

You can create your superhero using Muro if you wish, just ensure that your work is uploaded to deviantART.

To give you some ideas, especially the photographers, have you got a DeviantART Fella Mascot? You could easily dress him up creatively as a superhero - even turn your beloved pet or little brother into a miscat superhero! Miscats are Mis-categorised pieces of work here on DeviantART. They are works that have been submitted to the wrong gallery.

The idea of a Miscat Superhero is to have someone who can fight those pesky miscats! They may have a secret power, they may be you in digital art form, the possibilities are pretty much endless.

How to Enter?


  • Submit your piece to DeviantART.
  • NAME your super hero!
  • Ensure you include a link to this contest article in your artist comments.
  • Join projecteducate by clicking the 'Join Group' button on the front page
  • Head over to this folder at projecteducate and submit your work!

Please allow some time for your submission to be approved, if your submission hasn't been accepted within 3 days please send the group a note.
Remember, work must be your own and all used stock must be credited.
It must be correctly categorised in the poper gallery, after all the miscat super hero should not be a miscat himself ;)
There can only be one entry per person!

I'm not sure my calculations are correct (now that I see the comments below), but as I understood the deadline is in two hours? I have just submitted my entry, so I hope I didn't miscaluculate (or rather that the time converter didn't mislead me). The converter didn't have 12 am, it just said noon after 11 am. I'm confused, and hope I can still be part of the contest, as I worked really hard on my entry to make it in time. :(

And there's the rub. Just because one volunteers, that does not automatically confer "lovability" unto a person. New word, mine, "lovability" is miiiiiiine. :B

It says in the article... but a miscat is a piece of work that has been placed in the wrong gallery, thus mis-categorised :)

Quiiiiiick questionnnn~
I'll probably make an entry whether it can compete or not, just because I like the idea, but is this contest open to the customization category? I want to make an emoticon, because holy-poop do we get miscats in that gallery. :faint:
Reply
:iconkaz-d:
Kaz-D Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
Yep! As long as it fits the brief it can be any medium that allows you to make something. A miscat emote would be awesome :D
