What is this?
In 2011 I started a little journal-series calles 'Projects around dA' to promote artists, deviants or groups which do wonderful projects.
2011 I ended the series (without ever intending to do so), when I hadn't seen new projects coming up for a while.
I'm sure there have been wonderful projects and ideas for projects in that whole time, but unfortunately I missed them.
In the last few months I have been more active on deviantArt again and I found out about some really wonderful things going on.
So now, it's time for a new journal.
Let's see the projects:
AWW - Angels without Wings Award
The Angels-without-Wings-Award was created by a team of deviants (leaded by Nameda
) to be given to deviants who behave like an angel
What does that mean?
An Angel without Wings is a deviant who regulary features others, is willing to always be helpful and kind in comments and helps other with kind words, when they need a helping hand. They also promote the projects of others, suggest Daily Deviations and give wonderful, fair critiques...
There have been many Angels in the last time and if you know one, you can also suggest him / her.

Take a look at these wonderful journals: AWW II / 2015
and AWW III / 2015
is a group which supports you and your community-project in every possible way.
What is possible?
Well let's take a look at the things they wrote themselves:
We can provide experienced consultants to help you design and implement your project.
- We can facilitate getting you your own gallery folder for your project under the Community Projects gallery on dA.
- We can facilitate getting you prizes for your project from communityrelations.
- We can help you troubleshoot any problems you have and support you in working through them.
- We can help you find other community members to assist with running the project.

Take a look at the wonderful projects they already support and maybe you'll get an idea to create your own.

You can suggest people or groups for this award and maybe they get a journal like this:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Pencil vs. Camera
The artist BenHeine
has long ago started to create picture combining photography and drawings in a very special way.
Usually the picture are very well thought. He sees a possible motive, draws a scene, fitting to the circumstances and then takes a picture of it. The results are stunning and you may be surprised what can be possible when a Pencil challenges a Camera.
