Group Spotlight Project

Thu Jul 3, 2014, 3:34 PM
Hello everyone,

For those of you who don't know, a few months ago I started a little project that I called "Group Spotlight" in which I feature one group per journal, and the work recently submitted into that same group. The groups I choose are ones that are active within the community, i.e: they host contests, write features, lead projects, etc.
The purpose is to encourage groups to be active within the community, "reward" those that are, or rather thank them for their great work, showcase amazing artists, and help members of the community find new groups to join!

If you'd like to suggest a group that you feel should be feature, please do! I'm most involved in photography, digital art, and a little bit of traditional and literature, so it'd be great to receive suggestions of groups I'm not familiar with, and would have a hard time finding! Just leave a comment here or send me a note!

Past editions:

Group Spotlight vol.1Hello everyone,
I'd like to start a new series of features where I spotlight a group that contributes to the DeviantArt community somehow either by promoting unknown art, doing regular features, holding competitions, promoting critique/comment systems, showcasing resources to help members improve, etc. I'm hoping to possibly bring to light some great groups here on dA and possibly attract them new members or watchers, by showcasing deviations from their gallery after a brief introduction of the group in itself. Enjoy and :+fav: please! :heart:
:Iconsoftness-art:
Softness-Art is a group centered around photography that is "soft", "sweet", "emotive". Those are the words I would use to qualify the photography that they submit to their folders. It's a group where you will find touching, beautiful, delicate yet strong, and emotional photos from some talented photographers. They are fairly strict when it comes to quality, but remain fair, and simply wish to share great photography wit

:icontrees-with-character:
Trees with character is a group for tree loving people. They accept photography, digital media, traditional art, and artisan crafts giving their watchers a variety of tree centered art to enjoy! They've hosted many contests in the past, and are about to announce a new one. The quality of art has a wide range, accepting both amateurs and professionals, and I'd recommend any nature an

:iconhigh-quality:
High Quality was created about 6 months ago and has been doing extremely well ever since. Every week they feature one of their members in a journal on their page, and while they are named "High Quality", do not let that convince you they're an elitist group, because they are not. They regularly accept unknown art, or art from unknown artists which is quite

This is such a great idea! I read all four features, and they're wonderful! :love:

If it's all right, I'd like to suggest my group I-Heart-Colors for a possible feature? :aww:
The group is about, you guessed it, colors! :giggle: We collect the best and most imaginative works from dA, and have various events such as monthly features, polls and contests.

Please let me know if there's anything else you'd like to know :)

I don't know if suggesting one's own group is allowed, sorry if it isn't. But if it is acceptable, could you please feature InternationalFAQ? Thank you very much. ^^

Sure yeah! Suggestion your own group is fine!
Could you give me a bit of a description of the group? I usually feature groups that have artwork so this might be a bit more challenging

InternationalFAQ is home to a community project. What we do is provide unofficial translations of the dA FAQ in various languages for deviants who need them. You can find more details here . ^^

I was just about to suggest this group as well :)
I am a new translator there, did not do anything yet, but am really fond of the idea, and think it is worth spreading.
I would like to thank :icondawishingwell: for a feature they did lately :)
I also recommend :iconthefavouriteshowcase: for showcasing a huge amount of artworks and providinig regular features :)
