Open Contests & Events

We fully support people using their VP NaNo emotes as contest/project entries for other events in the community. Emotes do not need to be exclusively made for this challenge, so feel free to enter them into both. We feel that contests and projects can also help with ideas and inspiration, so we have collected a list of open events below.

NaNoEmo 2013 - Event Round Up

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 16, 2013, 2:46 PM


This year's NaNoEmo event has now come and gone and I thought it would be fitting to spend a few minutes reflecting back on the month.

For those unfamiliar with the group, NaNoEmo hosts an event each November with the aim of encouraging emoticonists to make more emotes throughout the month. Whilst participants are free to set their own target , many attempt the 30-in-30 challenge with the aim of creating 1 emote per day.

This year we received a total of over 500 deviations, from nearly 40 different artists. The entries came in all different colours, styles and sizes with a range of awesome chat friendly emotes, collections of stamps and avatars, along with stunning visual purpose pieces.

Later in the article Mirz, myself and the dA community have selected just a few of our favourite pieces, though to see the full selection, visit the NaNoEmo Gallery.

Milestone Achievers

This year we had an awesome set of milestone stamps created by Krissi001 for deviants who created 10, 20 or 30 emotes during the event. I thought it would be nice to feature all of the deviants who hit a milestone, to celebrate their achievement.

Can we join even if we don't know how to make emos?
I reached the limit and can't submit my last two entries :noes:
I've sent out the requests so we can override the rule :)

Pffffffft, I am trying to contribute the deviation "NaNoEmo 17: Straws? Tasty!" but that message appeared. It said "Submission would exceed the global limit of 9 deviations every 7 days", I tried to contribute it, but that message is still appearing a I was unable to do that.
We have a limit set on the gallery to prevent people swamping it with loads of deviations each week. I'll go and send a submission request to override it :)

(it's already fixed, so you don't have to that)
