Welcome to the twenty sixth volume of Contests Around dA, written by `TimberClipse!
Wow delay's galore! We are back now . My life exploded again, so I can't believe it that now at 11PM at night I even managed to finish this... *sigh* We should be back to normal next week! Thank you for continuing to submit contests, and very sorry for the delay
As many of you know, I recently started up . Due to the time commitment, there will be no article the first week of every month. (i.e the Thursday nearest to the first of every month)
Thanks for Understanding!

ABOUT CONTESTS AROUND dA
There are a lot of contests around dA these days, chances to win points, subscriptions, art and more! But many are hard to hear about and some you must watch the contest's owner to even know about!
Contests can give inspiration and get deviants to make more art that is why it is so important to learn about contests.
- Quote From !xiodinex
We write this article because we believe that contests play an important part in art. Without motivation many artists do not make art. This is not to say that none do, but many people make their best pieces for contests and this article can really help them achieve their goals and dreams!
- Quote from `TimberClipse
So, this news article will be published weekly to let you know about them and to give publicity to them!
We would like to thank a number of deviants and groups who help make this article possible.
