deviant's Appreciation Day 2007

The idea for deviant's Appreciation Day came originally from @Tachy-on, who started a forum thread back in April, raising a very valid point -without you, without your art, your community spirit, your journal postings, forum threads, opinions and news articles - deviantART would not be deviantART.
With over 4 million users, we are sure that many of you have forged international friendships and creative partnerships which will be lifelong. On site, we have hundreds of art collaborations as well as community groups which regularly interact in order to develop high quality art packs and deviations.
There are regular devmeets held across the globe including the United States, Canada, England, Scotland, Wales, Germany, Holland, Spain, Thailand, Australia, Israel, Argentina, Peru and Venezuala. Some of you have even gone on to meet and marry your partners, and produce deviant offspring through interacting on deviantART. Community love, for sure.

So, to get back to @Tachy-on's original idea, we think you really do deserve a  deviant's Appreciation Day, and here you have it.  A day where everyone in this art community does something to show how much we appreciate everyone else for being here.
deviant's Appreciation Day officially kicks off at 10am PST, Friday 22nd June. You can find your own local time here.

Various contests and events will take place throughout the site, where you will have the opportunity to take part in art challenges, scavenger hunts and other associated madness. Make sure you drop by the Forums and dAmn, as you are sure to find plenty of action on there.
We've got prizes galore, including devwear, prints, subscriptions, software, vouchers for self publishing. We've got signed goodies from $spyed, $lolly and other deviantART Staff. Gallery Directors and MN@ are giving away prizes that are too good to miss! So watch out for various journal announcements from deviantART Staff and Volunteers throughout the day to let you know what's going on, and where.

We hope you have an amazing day!

deviantWEAR specials

In order to fully participate in Deviant's Appreciation Day, it's uber-important that you stop by the deviantWEAR Shop on the 22nd as we'll be launching four new products!  Two shirts.  Two hats.  Four times the fun.  

And just in case new products aren't enticing enough and you're still pondering whether or not to make a [magical] deviantWEAR purchase, all orders placed on June 22nd between 12:00 AM and 11:59 PM (Pacific Daylight Time) will include a free five-pack of dA Buttons.
  (Please note: the dA Buttons will not appear in your shopping cart during checkout.  However, all successfully placed orders on June 22nd PDT will be shipped with a free set of buttons.)

In conjunction with all the Deviant's Appreciation Day celebrations going on around the site, #Shop on dAmn will be home to deviantWEAR giveaways throughout the day.  Pop in for your chance to win some devious delights.

And finally, add £deviantWEAR to your deviantWATCH to stay up to date and informed about the latest deviantWEAR details and promotions.

Community devmeet love
