During previous weeks of dA Community Relations' projecteducate, we have learned about the importance of giving and receiving critique for our work. Now, let's shake things up a bit!


Feedback Frenzy! (Comment Contest)

A group of very, very devious deviants at FeedbackFrenzy are hosting
a comment/critique contest as part of projecteducate: Feedback Week!


The contest is now closed to entrants and will start on Monday July 2nd! :heart:

PE Feedback: Welcome and FEEDBACK FRENZY!

Check out the full contest rules and guidelines!


WHAT: "Feedback Frenzy" is a week-long game that ANYONE (yes, even YOU!) can play. The goals are to step outside your comfort zone and practice giving feedback to others, even if not in your own genre, to meet new deviants from across dA, and to receive as much high-quality, usable feedback on your work as possible.

WHEN: July 2nd to July 8th (one full week)

WHERE: All of deviantART! :heart:

HOW:
  1. Entrants will sign up to critique and include art they want critiqued.  
  2. You will be split in teams of four based on medium.  
  3. You'll have one week to write your best critiques for as many of the pieces as you can. 
    Comments/critiques - you don't need to be a premium member to participate! 
  4. FeedbackFrenzy staff will rate the critiques for consistency and quality. 
    Since quality matters, one fantastic critique is worth more than 10 poor critiques! 
  5. The team with the highest total number of points wins!  

Great feedback is hard to find - unless you know where to look. We are looking to you, the deviantART community to show us some of the best critiquing this site has to offer! Beautiful artwork is featured here all the time, now it's time to feature some beautiful comments too. So give us the best you've got - make your comments useful, accurate, applicable, informative, and friendly (but honest) - pull together resources and provide direction for the artist. Remember, you'll be receiving comments through this contest as well as giving them, so write the kind of critique that you'd really love to get in return.

PRIZES: :trophy:

Thanks for remembering me. :D Right now I'm buried in job hunting and other work, so I'm very busy. I'd love to sign up but I just don't have the time. ^^; I'm so sorry. I will try for next time. I'm a member of the group, and I'll watch the updates. Thanks again. :)

Stupid question: Anyone have a good way of getting all your links into one place for the dude who sends the final note? DA turns www.google.com into [link], so we're thinking of using pastebin.com or something.

You could try putting them all together into a text document on your desktop, and just add them when your team mates note you? :)

I went through the group notes (all 29 pages of them, including starred and archived) and couldn't find you - could you go through your sent notes and please make sure that it went through?

I'm really sorry for all of the trouble. :(

We're still sorting some last minute things before the contest beings. We haven't added everyone's work to the gallery yet.
Rest assured we will have them sorted before the contest :)

I've sent the note. Let's see. I'm Swedish but living and working in Ireland. I'm a photographer and graphic designer but I also dabble in drawing and fan fiction. My work is, believe it or not, not very creative so I stay sane by playing around on DA. Critique is mana. I learn so much from it and it encourages me. I always try to say something constructive when commenting on other peoples work but on occasion my imagination fails me. When I photograph it's digital but I miss the darkroom work. When I draw it's mostly with Photoshop although I'm very much a beginner in the field of digital painting. When I work in traditional media it's gouache, watercolours or pencil. I'm also co-writing fan fiction based in the world of the game Dragon Age: Origins I'm terrible at photographing people and love macro, especially plants, which is never going to earn me any money.

I think the feedback you get in the contest is at least as good a reward if not better than the listed prizes. :D

Okay.. about me...

San Antonio, Texas!! One of the hot-spots for major anime lovers here in Texas! I am a fan of photography (and cosplay photography)!

Critiques are very important for me, as they help me get better! ^^ I think this contest will be a fun way to practice critiquing art, so that I may critique my own art as well! Can't wait to get started!! :)

Okay, I just sent my note. About me...hum.

My name is Lili. I'm 24. I live in North Carolina, USA. I have been writing since first grade, though only started to take my talent seriously at about age 15 (coincidentally, about the time I joined dA). I discovered how helpful and influential critique can be in shaping a writer when I received my first real critique from `fllnthblnk. That man is on my permanent love-and-devotion list. A couple years later I opened up #Critique-It, which aims to help people from all genres receive detailed and helpful feedback from the community.
