EDIT: See MORE added prizes below! :meow: :dance:

"Major", in case anyone is wondering, is simply a big contest versus a mini contest, just decided to make it sound more fancy or whatever this time around. :P  Anyway, there was a poll/discussion done quite some time ago to decide what kind of contest to do...the most popular idea was the butterfly contest and that was a HUGE success, and turned out very nicely. But I decided to use all of the ideas, so the next is simply called Cute Rodents with the theme of course being pictures of the cutest rodents you can come up with!

Rodents are a broad family of animals, some examples being:

:bulletblue: Mice
:bulletblue: Rats
:bulletblue: Guinea Pigs
:bulletblue: Squirrels
:bulletblue: Beavers

That's only a small list of examples, so remember any rodent will do!  Just submit what you think is your best quality work featuring any cute rodent you want.  We are looking for major "d'awww" factor, in other words. ;)

Rules are the same as always:

:bulletred: One submission per deviant, and must be a member.
:bulletred: Photos only (this time around, not for art)
:bulletred: Make sure it's a rodent, no other kind of animal.
:bulletred: Make sure all rules of this group are followed.
:bulletred: Submit your entries in the new "Contest- Cute Rodents" folder.
:bulletred: Contest is one month, ending on 3/10.  (I'll put up a countdown as before.)

Founder prizes :iconsilkenwinds:

1st place- 800 :points: and 1 month subbie, big feature.

There will be three honorable mentions, I'll give a 10 point bonus to each.

More prizes are possible as affiliates are notified or admin chips in.  Also members are welcome to offer prizes if they'd like.

Have fun everyone, and if you have any questions, please do ask.

When are the results going to be out? I'm checking this page every day for a voting journal.

Yeah we're sorry for the delay, our founder is very busy right now with two jobs.
She said she will try to write the voting journal this weekend.

Ahh crud I've got a cute rodent that I drew but this contest is for photos only... Will there be one for artwork?
SilkenWinds Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
No I'm sorry but not for this contest. However the next one we do will more than likely be an art/photo contest, but a different theme.

Okay sounds great :D

If you NOTE the Group with the WINNERS,
I would be glad to feature the Winners at #Unframed-Nature

I will also be promoting the Contest in the TOP SUBS of JAN., which is very late coming out, because I JUST got back from away for three weeks...
but is coming out VERY soon now.

So add #Unframed-Nature
to the list of feature prizes, thanks,
and good luck to ALL!
