Make sure you take a look at these other amazing groups where you can find help, tips and feedback as well as meeting other like-minded users in a friendly environment.

Welcome Along

Welcome to DAZCreativeContests!

Our Purpose
This group is devoted to 3D artwork created with DAZ Studio and Poser with a focus on theme-based images, learning, creativity and fun! In addition to helping towards increasing traffic to your profile and work, it will also serve as a place to meet like-minded users and give you the chance to win prizes such as gift certificates for DAZ and Renderosity, prints of winning art work and premium memberships here on dA.

Fun, Learning, Critique
These are the three things that drive this group. We want our members to feel welcomed by other like-minded people and feel equal amongst your peers. We want to provide a place where you can post your work for honest advice, critique and get the help you need to improve your artwork. Our contests are a great way to move out of your normal routine and work to a theme for a chance to win yourself some nice prizes!

Please consult the Rules before submitting your application or work to the group. Failure to adhere to those rules may result in your work being declined or a possible ban from the group.

:bulletred:The group rules can be found here dazcreativecontests.deviantart…

Once you have read them you can proceed with your application to the group.

Contest Galleries
Every month we have a new theme. The current monthly contest gallery is titled with the name of the month. Other contest galleries will be named after their contest title. Once a contest has been displayed for two weeks past the closing date, the entries will be moved into the Past Contests Entries gallery.

:bulletred:If you are planning on entering our competitions then please read these basic rules and information on how contests will be run. dazcreativecontests.deviantart…

Critiques Section
A section will be created for artist desiring critiques, feedback, advice or a little extra knowledge to improve their artwork and skill base. Submitting a picture to this folder will indicate to the other group members and contributors that a critique is requested.

:bulletred:More details about the Critiques Section can be found here dazcreativecontests.deviantart…

We hope you will join us and enjoy your time here at DAZCreativeContests!
... oh, boy!  We had a tie.  First time ever that I can recall.  So we had to make it up as we went along!  Sadly there can only be one winner so, buy the very merest shortest of noses - but before we get there ...

A thank you to everyone who submitted all those great images that made the life of your admin hell in trying to pick out a mere five to push out in the short-list.  And a special thank you to all who formed the cabal behind the conspiracy to arrange a dead heat for first place ... didn't make our job any harder, no not at all ;) :lmao:

But back to the winner: where was I? Oh, yes, short noses ... (if that expression makes no sense be glad as you will not have been throwing your money away down the bookies! ;)).  Just edging out in front we have:

Illy and Mari by sohighlydubious by :iconsohighlydubious:

He will be contacted shortly with details of the prize.  Congratulations to them and to all others (special mention to :iconsithlordsims: who was ever so gently nudged into second place), and, as ever, thank you again for all your great work!

The prize is, of course, an item, or items, to the value of $15 from the RuntimeDNA store (bundles, some miscellaneous items and AeonSoul products excepted).

A small heads up - due to a slight error (translation: me being a total plonker!) it seems I have 2 licences for Texture Transformer and having contacted the vendor I have been told it is ok for me to pass one of them on.  So, just in time for Christmas, I, in cahoots with my esteemed colleagues and fellow admins will be picking a single submission to the group and I will be donating the licence to the artist - assuming they want/need the product, of course! ;)

Silly question but is anyone else having issues with DA submissions today? I've tried in several groups and nothing seems to happen. 
SimonJM Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2014
Not noticed anything, but then I have not done much in last couple of days
I-Am-Madbat Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2014
I was having issues in every group, my submissions weren't registering with me so I had no DA record in my messages of any of them. Just a heads up, if you get a sudden rush of same image spam from people, that might by why.

We get the occassional double submission, which I dub a 'mouse bounce', but not a torrent of them.  Yet ;)
