Quality Prose Contest (JIP)
The judging for this is currently in process, thank you for all the great submissions!
Another day and another contest at #Written-Imagination's week long birthday celebrations. This time our contest is looking for the quality construction of descriptive prose, not matter how flowery it happens to be (so long as we know what you're talking about and it conforms to rules). This means you show things that are happening to the audience with imagery, metaphor, simile, symbolism and all the other elements of figurative language. 
You don't tell them by saying "it was sad" - you  show them by saying "Tears spilled down her pale cheeks as the coffin descended into the  freshly dug earth below." We want descriptive language to up our eyeballs and straining our brains! :happybounce:
So here are the rules for the contest: 
It can be no more than

Are you ready?
It was a dark and stormy night... 
Well, no. It wasn't. In fact, it wasn't even night for one member of the conversation. 
So. On a pretty average day in July, betwixtthepages and angeljunkie hatched a plan after a particularly painful FFM prompt and decided to save it in honour of the absolute best holiday during the best month of the year: Halloween. 
Breaking our usual tradition of one annual, lacoterie will open our Halloween-themed mini-contest. It'll be a bit more fun and light than Transgressions but still a bit challenging. And prose only. 
BUT first we could use some help from all you awesome folks for prizes! Any donation is wonderful - journal features, points (angeljunkie has a donation widget up - any amount gets you lots of Sashi :heart:), commissions, whatever you can spare. You will be thanked profusely. Don't forget to tell your friends. 
Meanwhile, other fun things happening around the

Halloween Contests (prize pool of 300+pts)
Greetings all! Zaivinx and GeneralBacon happen to love Halloween, so ShardWolf3 has come together to deliver its first contests to you all :dummy:
:star:First of all, we'd like to mention that everyone who participates will get a prize. It may be anything from a custom to a creature adoptable, and there will even be a few randomly chosen contestants who will receive up to 10 :points:. However, in order to receive a prize for participating, you must submit an entry. This means simply saying you will join and then never submitting an entry to the contest will not count towards a participation prize.
There will be a total of three contests, with one main contest and two smaller contests. Our main contest will have a 1st place prize of 100:points: and will last the majority of October. Our two smaller contests will both have 1st place prizes of 50:points: =) All submissions will be judged on creativity and effort, so a

We are having twins and due to pregnancy I have had to take a long break from my own art.  Since everything I do and love is toxic I decided to support some DA artists to order prints for the nursery. Thank you to these artists for creating beautiful pieces I could have printed.
