Hope to see lots of cheetah art!

December 4th isn't that far away...

Use Your Art to Help Save a Species!

Last year, over 400 people participated in the International Cheetah Day Challenge on December 4th to help raise awareness and help save the cheetah!  This year we have even more planned as we approach the big event.  Read on to learn all about what's in store for ICDC 2013!

What is the International Cheetah Day Challenge?

Bullet; Yellow The International Cheetah Day Challenge (ICDC) is the day when all of us use our art to raise awareness about this endangered species and maybe even raise money for the cause!  The idea behind the challenge is that deviantART's front page will be filled with cheetah-themed art for one day, and through this people will be made aware of the plight of the cheetah.
Bullet; Blue To get involved, all you must do is submit cheetah-themed artwork to deviantART on December 4th, which is International Cheetah Day!  See details below.
Bullet; Yellow You can also help by promoting this challenge to others on deviantART in any way you can!  People who do so will be featured in the ICD journal on December 4th.

Together we can make a difference!



How will the challenge work?

Bullet; Blue On December 4th, submit cheetah-themed art to deviantART!  Any and all cheetah art is welcome!  Submit as many deviations as you like, the more the better!  But you cannot upload your art any earlier than December 4th, or the front page won't be filled!  You can however put it your art in until the 4th if you like.
Bullet; Orange In your deviation description, please state that your piece was created for the ICDC.
Bullet; Blue Also include links to the Cheetah Conservation Fund and to the official ICDC journal: (not yet written)

What can be included in the artwork?

Bullet; Yellow You must include a cheetah in some way.  The other content of the artwork is up to you, as long as it is respectful and in support of cheetah conservation!
Bullet; Red Your submission must be your original work.  Your submission must comply with all deviantART rules.
Bullet; Yellow Any medium is accepted!  Any skill level is accepted!  Quantity is the key to the challenge's effectiveness!

How else can I get involved?

Bullet; Green Promote promote promote!  Write a personal journal about the ICDC!  If you own a group, promote it there!  Tell your friends!  Raising awareness is all about telling others, so tell anyone in any way you can.
Bullet; Blue Donate to the cause yourself at the the Cheetah Conservation Fund.  There are many was to get involved in conservation that aren't financial as well.
Bullet; Green After your art is submitted, sell it and donate the profits to a cheetah conservation group of your choosing!

What's in it for me?

Bullet; White If you submit art on December 4th, it will be included in a special gallery in this group.
Bullet; White Your name will be featured in a special ICDC journal posted to this group on December 4th.
Bullet; White People and groups who help promote the ICDC will also be featured in a special journal.
Bullet; White You will have the satisfaction of knowing you are helping raise awareness to save a species!

What's coming between now and December 4th?

Bullet; Purple Special deviant, group, and deviation features highlighting amazing art and dedicated conservation efforts.
Bullet; Purple Special features of various conservation groups and what they're doing to save the cheetah.
Bullet; Purple Features about cheetahs themselves with facts you may not have previously known.

On International Cheetah Day we will have a special feature journal including facts about cheetahs and endangerment, mind-blowing videos, fantastic art features, and ways you can help save the cheetah!

We are setting a minimum goal of 500 deviations!  Together we can make it happen and use our art to raise awareness!

Visit the Cheetah Conservation Fund to learn more about cheetahs and how to help save the species!  Visit our About Us page for links to numerous conservation groups!

Please comment with any questions, suggestions, and let us know how you plan to get involved so we can add your name to the list of participants!  Keep an eye on the group and this journal for updates!

I am an artist of some kind, writer, video gamer, photographer and probably the most unhappy person you'd meet.

I LOVE the Halo franchise! I can play the heck out of the games, but mostly Reach. I absolutely love the Sangheili! Especially the Reach style Ultra. They are almost my second biggest obsession! You can tell by my flood of screenshots XD My gamertag is DuchessofDismal if you ever wanna get together for some firefight matchmaking.

I do random role-playing, but only with my close friends. My RP names are, Aria (Halo, ODST, Sergeant Grade 1), Tess (Invader Zim, Rebel, Wannabe Tallest) and Nescafe (Neopets, Mutant Grundo). Yep, I'm a Nerd. What can I say?

I was in the Navy for 4 years and then the Army about a year. I hated it and so got out. The Navy was the best part of my life and I really wish I hadn't screwed up by going to the Army. Oh well. Live and learn.

I'm an obsessive lion king fan and I am not ashamed. Cats are my number one and aliens are my biggest fascination. Yes, I am weired, but who isn't. I'm just a little weirder then normal.
Hope I didn't scare you :)
