We have an exciting contest set up for the users of deviantART this time around, with fantastic prizes!
The theme is to depict what the group is about (the theme of one of the participating groups, that is [link]). Please don't get confused on this – groups cannot pick their own theme. Submissions should capture the main focus of the group, for example a portrait of the main characters for a fanclub, or depicting the group's mascot.
