So, what would you like to see if we were to have another contest? Please leave suggestions, feedback and general ideas in the comments section below.
LOOKING FOR A NEW FOUNDER!I’m sorry I’ve been such a bad founder and neglecting our group I’ve decided to hand over the reins, if anyone is interested in running this group themselves, give a reason why you want to be founder, I won’t play favorites, but whoever I think can improve the group the most, gets the job, so don't hate me for my choice.
Is anyone interested in becoming a contributor?Well out group hasn’t been very lively but if anyone is interested in becoming a contributor and helping me make our group better. Anyone is welcome, just message here and I shall promote you immediately
So we are having a contest!This is the group’s first contest; I hope we get plenty of submissions. I’ve had many ideas and given some suggestions on rules for this contest, like word play, a theme, and a word limit. Those all sound like good ideas and I will keep those in mind for later contest, for the first one I will just say: go nuts. Make what you want to make for this first contest; the theme can be anything you want, have as many words in it as you want, there are only a few rules.
It must be a short story
It must be in a text format
It can have mature content but nothing over 18
The contest will close one mouth from now on June 8th, if anyone feels they need more time it can and will be extended.
I want you to be as creative as you can for this contest but if your fanfic is all about and OC character then at least one real character form the Simpson’s has to be in there for at least half of the time. (or else it’s not really a Simpson
Contest?Is it just me or is this group dying before it even gets off the ground?
I think maybe we can spark things up with a contest. I’m thinking we have a suggested theme and the winner gets to have their work put in the Featured folder (there’s not much I can do in the way of prizes for now).
But before we get too excited if I hold a contest would anybody actually participate?
No point in having a contest if nobody enters.
Anyway I please give me your feedback on what you guys think.
I'm still trying to work everything outI’m still working a few bugs in running a group if anybody who is used to running a group can offer me any advice about anything it would be very appreciated. P.S. this is a literature group. I know I am letting in basic fan art but I don’t want that to overshadow the writing part of this group so please feel free to submit your fan art but don’t submit your whole gallery a fan art. I want to keep the main focus on writing.
Updates! Please Read!So I’ve noticed there’s been some confusion with submitting to the right so I’m going to make some updates to try and make it easier on all of you. I’ve always liked groups were deviants are immediately accepted so of course it will stay that way. But here’s some folder updates.
Note: illustrations that are not comics but have a story attached to them will still go under short stories or multi chaptered stories depending on how long the story is.
THIS FOLDER STAYS EMPTY!
I’ve made it so you can’t submit to this folder. I have my own reasons for wanting to keep this folder empty. I’ve never run a Group before but in other groups that I’m a part of everyone submits to the featured folder, and all folders go unused, accepted for contributed. There are a few things I’m pretty much obsessive compulsive about, and this is one of them. So this stays empty and anything suggested to featured will be rejected, I
Critiquing, do's and dont'sSo i almost always request critiques on my art, and i also get a lot of them too (thank you so much guys/galls) and i've noticed some critiquers have some misconceptions about critiques, their role, how to do it, etc.
Now i don't want to critique someone's critiuque, i rarely do that because people take it as being defensive about the art that is critiqued. So i'll just make this journal to hopefully inform/educate some of you about critiquing.
-If an artist requests critiques, and you have something to say about it then do use the critique widget to leave a critique. Don't critique in the comment's section though. I know some of you are more shy, but if you're bold enough to write a critique then put it in its proper place, that's what the widget is fore. This does not apply to artists who do not have a premium and can't requests critiques through the widget.
-Do read the artists comments on the artwork first. They might offer hints on what
Monthly Theme FANTASY vote and win points:iconthefavouriteshowcase:
ALL INFO ABOUT THE THEMATIC FOLDER HERE
This is the new way to find our winner of our monthly challenge at TheFavouriteShowcase: instead of using a Poll with the ten most voted of the period, we'll be using a blog to showcase the 20 MOST VOTED on this theme!
This means, or so I hope, more exposure for your pieces and galleries.
The idea is simple: each work has a number and all deviants have the opportunity to vote like if it was a poll...with the difference that you will choose not one but 3 favourites!
All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watchers to vote; this blog may have publicity by all means and be submitted in groups.
The work with most votes wins 130 points;
the second place wins 80, the 3rd place wins 50 and the 4th win
Honey, We're Getting a MonsterfancyQUACKS
A really hungry one...
Naughty monsters are running rampant in the city again - you know the kind! They're short, noisy and make constant mischief on our doorsteps; begging for candy despite buying perfectly good pumpkins the same day. What's their dastardly plan for all that food? They're up to no good and must be stopped.
We should feed the trick-or-treaters - to hungry, real monsters! There's a critter-shaped hole to this plan: we don't actually have any real monsters. But all we need are your designs to put into my Monster Making Machine to release them into the suburbs! Trick-or-treaters - gobbled up for good!
How does this work? I'm glad you asked. The "Monster Maker 2000" is my old, modified microwave and this invention will create flesh-and-blood monsters from designs. A little energy combined with your designs will help bring our glorious abomination to life.

8 Legal Cases Every Photographer Should KnowSource: http://petapixel.com/2014/10/28/8-legal-cases-every-photographer-know/
Understanding your legal rights as a photographer can often be confusing and overwhelming. From copyright infringement to fair use to DMCA, there are a number of legal concepts that every photographer should be familiar with. Here are eight important legal cases that are illustrative of these concepts and the importance of registering your copyright.
1. Andrew Paul Leonard v Stemtech Health Sciences, Inc
Key concept: Copyright infringement and registration
Microphotography expert Andrew Paul Leonard’s photographs of bone marrow stem cells were stolen and used on the Stemtech website and other marketing materials.
The court ruled in Leonard’s favor for copyright infringement awarding him $1.6m in actual damages. However, he was denied statutory damages because he didn’t register his images until after the infringement occurred.
2. Nussenzweig v DiCorcia
Key concepts: Right of Privacy/Publici

Our First Ever Comment Contest As many of you know, around August-October, we host a yearly Relativity art contest. We must delay the contest this year due to personal issues and other commitments that we want to get through. But, we didn't just want to let our anniversary pass without doing something.
We are going to have a comment contest! The nice thing about this is that EVERYONE can enter, even if you are not good at art or writing. The only thing you need to do is leave comments. There will be two categories: ART and STORIES. Each category will have slightly different rules, so pay attention. You MAY enter both categories. The idea is to leave comments on Relativity artwork and/or stories. Everyone who qualifies will be entered into a drawing to win points prizes. We also have a special grand-prize up for grabs.
All comments must be NEW. You cannot enter with old comments. They must have been posted on or after October 24, 2014 to qualify.
