The artists should be contacting you shortly to get information on your prizes. Points will be awarded today or tomorrow. Congratulations!
Thank you to everyone that has commented so far. I have just been concentrating on giving out numbers. I shall comment to you all a bit more personally soon.
There is still time to join. Drawing ends May 5th!
Well, the other day I came on my page and was shocked to see I am nearing 400,000 pageviews! That's a pretty big number, and I'm thankful for each and every view. In the past I have run traditional kiribans, and while they are fun, I've had a couple of cheaters in my time which dampened my mood. But don't worry. I have always loved doing raffles, so I'm gonna do that instead. And, since my birthday is coming up, I decided to do an extra-special one, but you guys have a chance at getting the present/prize!
Three prizes are being raffled off:
A black & white "sketch" portrait by ThreshTheSky, like this
A color 3/4 character pic by SaraSaeed95, like this
The first name selected will get their choice of prize, then the second, and the third place the remaining prize.
Note: I am sponsoring the prizes and have paid the artists for the commissions. So please don't solicit them for prize donations.
How do you enter?
Simply comment on this journal with a link to one of your best deviations. You MUST link something. If you really don't want to link your own stuff, then link something from your favorites. At the end of the kiriban, everyone's selection will be featured in a special article by me with a special "back-to-business" Spotlight Feature article.
The raffle will close at 11:59p CST on May 5th and everyone will be assigned a number. The drawing will take place on May 6th and winners announced that day!
ANYONE can enter. You don't have to be a watcher. But it would be nice if you gave me a watch because you wanted to.
Spread the word! No, you won't get anything extra, but it's always fun to give others a chance to win, too.
THANK YOU everyone for your wonderful support and encouragement. I wish you all luck. And, of course, if you have any questions, just ask.
