Members contests entries will be here.

If you are still unsure what folder to submit to, we will gladly help you!

*If there's more than one type of pencils or an other media (including digital enhancements) in your drawing, it will go under "Mixed Media".
For example: If you have used watercolor pencils and smudged less then 50% of the work/lines with water it will be accepted. But will not if more then half of the work is brushed out with water, then we consider it a painting instead of a drawing. Same thing with any other non-pencil media. Any work that has been added by a digital program will go into "Mixed Media" Folder except borders and watermarks.

Remember that the rules of DA is still valid!
