Feedback For Favorites Contest

Fri Jan 4, 2013, 10:57 PM
Feedbackforfavs1 by Kendra-Paige

Created for thorns' Complaint Challenge.

Feedback Generated As Of February 1st: 4,085

The Inspiration:
The +Fav and Run Phenomenon.

Have you ever received Favorites on your deviations, but did not receive any comments or critiques? Have you added a user's work to your Favorites, but never left them any comments or feedback on those pieces? Many would agree that while views and favorites are great, that comments and critiques are the most valuable. This contest aims to fill that void, by giving deviants a chance to return to the artwork they collected and provide feedback for it.

The Mission:
To leave Comments, Feedback, and Critiques on Deviations in your Favorites Collection.

Go through your Favorites Gallery, and comment on the deviations you find there that you did not leave a comment on. You may also add a Critique on deviations that have the option available. All comments are meant to be encouraging and constructive, as the point of this contest is to create feedback where there previously was none. Feel free to merely express your enjoyment for the piece, as knowing that an artist’s work is appreciated is another wonderful way to add some positivity.

Prizes:
:bulletpink: (1 Winner) - 1,000 :points: + 2 Llamas + Commission from Riemea
:bulletpink: (2 Winners) - 500 :points: + 2 Llamas
:bulletpink: (4 Winners) - 250 :points: + 2 Llamas

Drat. A bit late to notice this. :( (Very, very guilty of the fave and run phenomenon, even though I sometimes set out to leave at least some kind of comment.) Still, it's a great idea!

This is great contest because even if you don't win - many people will have benefited anyway.

My Feedback for Favorites collection: [link]
I commented on a lot of deviations but only included the more relevant & more meaningful ones in the collection.

Here is my journal entry - which I submitted in the Journals/Culture/Contests category: [link]
