What is a Monthly Theme and how does it work?

A Monthly Theme is something we announce at the beginning of each month, according to which you can come up with a design/illustration/photograph to submit to our… (DesignersNexus Monthly Themes folder). One outstanding submission will be selected at the end of each month to be the main Feature on our homepage throughout the following month. Additional prizes may be included and may vary from month to month.

Rules & Regulations for participating:

:pointr: Please submit your entries to the… (DesignersNexus Monthly Themes Folder). Only deviations that 1) adhere to the current theme and 2) are submitted before the deadline will be accepted.

:pointr: Only one themed entry per member per month is allowed.

:pointr: Unless stated otherwise in the theme announcement, variations on a theme may not be included in the same deviation.

:pointr: Please include DNMT[name of month] (eg. DNMTMay) in the names of your themed submissions. This is to clarify the distinction between themes from different months, as all will be placed in the same folder.

:pointr: DN administrators are allowed to participate, but only unofficially. Their entries go into the one of the Admin Gallery folders and do not qualify for the member feature.

:pointr: If you want to suggest a theme, feel free to note me at: Rallya

:pointr: Monthly Themes challenges are not compulsory --- you don't have to participate if you don't want to. In the meantime you can still submit works to the other folders throughout the month.

honestly I dont know how to re  submit... >.<
sunshishi Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
You just submit your deviation again - to the suggested folder.
velvet021 Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
That's okay, it's pretty simple.
Go to your correspondence page and click the "Withdraw" button on the piece you had previously submitted.
Then, go click on the art that you wanted to submit, bring up the "Submit" tab, and submit it to the appropriate
folder of the group that you wanted it to go to :D

I hope that helps!  
ForeverCosmosArt Featured By Owner Edited Aug 2, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I already took it out of the correspondence :s
velvet021 Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Then all you have to do is go back to your art and submit it to the group again  :D
you're already halfway there

“Beyond Tech” T-Shirt Campaign!

I have a goal set on to sell 100 of the “Beyond Tech” Batman Beyond t-shirts. Each shirt will cost $20.00, which is cheaper than any other site that my designs are on. The shirts are high quality American Apparel brand %100 American made. Help me reach my goal of 100 and get yourself a really awesome shirt while you’re at it!

Campaign ends on 7/7/2014
