DeviantART Premium Membership Competition!
[Edit: 30-03-13 - Well this competition has only been running for a few days and has already drummed up so much interest on my website. I honestly cannot thank those of you who have entered enough. I have applied for some of the biggest cons of my life this year and having your support can really make a difference between getting a table or not. So, thank you. You still have until June 1st and the more people who enter, the more likely I am to add more prizes, so please keep telling your friends
Thank you all again x]
While I have been a Deviant for 4 years and a professional artist for 3 years, I am still only starting out in the land of social media - a very useful tool for up-and-coming artists. Social Media figures; such as blog hits, favorites, subscriptions, Facebook 'likes' and Twitter followers (not to mention DA +watchers, favorites and page-views) are valuable tools for publishers, authors, convention promoters and general people who are looking to hire you. While this can all be seen as an annoying online 'popularity contest', these figures are actually vital for getting yourself noticed by these professionals.
So, while I have been trying to up my numbers, I have also been trying to reward my followers in the process. Each and every one of my watchers, followers and 'likers' alike is invaluable to me as they are not only my audience but my friends, my critics and my support system. I wouldn't be able to call myself a 'professional' artist without them.
I have recently finished a competition for those who follow me on Facebook and Twitter and now would like to spread the thanks and love on to my DA +Watchers.
So I am offering a 12 Month (!) Premium Membership to a DA member who fulfills the following simple criteria:
1: Visit my website www.anastasiacatris.com and comment on AT LEAST one piece of artwork ([link]
or blog entry ([link]
. Each comment counts as an individual entry into the competition - so the more comments you make - the more times you will be entered into the draw to win (Max. 20 comments). Make sure to mention your DeviantArt name in your comment or that you were referred to the site via DeviantArt.
2: Comment on this journal to let me know that you have entered. While this is not necessary (as I will have you contact details from the comment you leave on my website www.anastasiacatris.com), it will make it easier to gauge how many entrants we have and directly link me to your DeviantArt page (so I can check out your stuff and generally say thank you).
The closing date for this competition is June 1st leaving you plenty of time to enter (And tell your friends about it). Entrants will then be counted and entered into a draw to win the prize of a 12 Month Premium Membership to DA.
The more people who enter this competition the more likely I will be to add on extra prizes to the competition! This may include free artwork, sketch cards, points, etc... depending on how popular it is! So, please pass this journal onto your friends and encourage them to join in. The more people, the better the prizes
Once again, thank you all ever so much for your support. It really does mean so much to have such an awesome community of artists, critics and writers at my fingertips. Can't wait to see your comments over at www.anastasiacatris.com
