Hey guys!

So this is a journal announcing the dates and getting everyone excited for Dalek Week 2012!! ~

We had a really great week last year so I wanted to get this journal out early so that we can get as many people participating again.

Now, I'm sure many of you know what Dalek Week is, but for those who don't know, Dalek week is a seven day challenge where you upload one deviation per day for seven days. Each day has a certain theme that you will need to centre your entry around. So let's say that first day's theme is Tears, then your entry should be based off of that theme. Like last year, we are letting all of you guys choose the themes! It is my hope that by letting all of the members of the group decide on the themes we might get a lot more participation in the event when it finally roles around. Please add all of your theme suggestions in a comment to this journal.

That being said, Dalek Week will be held sooner than it was last year, the official dates for it are: July 8th to July 14th. **

Alright, so that's all the basic info you need to know, and I'm going to go ahead and post all of the rules now, so you can all really start getting hyped up!

RULES

:bulletyellow: The Dalek Week folder will be opened all week. Please submit all entries to this folder, and make sure to mention Dalek Week either in the title or description. Linking our group in the description in recommended. (:

:bulletgreen: Your entries do not have to be strictly fanart! They may be writing, manips, photography/cosplay or fanvids. For manips, please try to use only stock images and for your fanvids link the video in a comment on this journal entry. If you simply link it on the comments part of the group or in a journal it will mostly likely get forgotten or overlooked.

:bulletyellow: Do not submit your entries before the date! Early entries will be deleted but you will be able to resubmit it on the proper dates. However, it is encouraged that you start early! Make your entries whenever you want! Many people (myself included) find that when the week roles around, that it is hard to keep up with a submission everyday. So whenever the inspiration strikes, go for it! The themes will be announced probably in a week or so.

:bulletgreen: You may not use pre-existing deviations as an entry. All submissions must be new and made with the purpose of Dalek Week! Following the rules is the best way to get awesome results in this contest.

:bulletyellow: Remember that this event is for the purpose of having fun with art and celebrating Leviathan and it's characters. Don't look at Dalek Week as a big competition but as a week long celebration!

PRIZES

Alright, so for Dalek week we normally don't do too many prizes. This year we will have some though!!~

Similar to last year anyone who is able to complete all seven days of Dalek week will be acknowledged in the final Dalek Week journal! So you get your icon shown and a pretty congratulations from everyone here at Alek-and-Deryn :3

Also, after Dalek week, myself and the judges will decide on our favourite entries from each day. There will be one winner per day/theme. Those will be announced and given some special prizes! Prizes have not yet been decided, but when they are I will add them to this journal or maybe post a separate journal. Either way, keep checking in to the group for more information.

If you have any other questions/concerns/comments go ahead and post them here! And lets get started on those themes!

Another question: Are we allowed a late entry or two if we finish most of them on the right day and all of them by the end of the week?

You can do either! If you go into the gallery there's a button at the top that says "+Submit to this gallery" and gives you either option :)

One theme should be a Doctor Who crossover because I've always found it hilarious what Deryn+Alek makes. :)

You can always write fan fiction and the art doesn't have to be realistic! The amount of chibis I've seen of Leviathan is... :eyepopping:

I don't really have any ideas myself, but I really like some of everyone else's suggestions.
"memories with dead parents"
"summer afternoons"
"vintage times"
I also really like Stargirl8's suggestion of having one day Darwinist themed, another Clanker themed and the last day Clankwinist.

Peachdust Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2012   Traditional Artist
Vintage times(I mean something like Alek and Deryn dressed like a certain period of History, like the 50's for example)
Dancing...
Holidays, like Christmas...
And I agree with the potatoes, WW2 and baby pictures mentioned bellow:)

"Kisses" (THIS NEEDS NO EXPLANATION.)
"Interruption" (You KNOW someone's gonna walk in on those two at EXACTLY the wrong sort of time...;33)
"Crossover" (Yes, this was in the last [/first??? I think so, but better safe than sorry!~] one, but it's worth revisiting, in my opinion.)
"Daydreaming" (I wonder what they think about all the time when we're not creepin' inside their heads...)

(Also, in that last bullet point, that should be an "its" not "it's". Just FYI. ;33)

Some ideas:

-"Memories with dead parents"- like, one piece showing both of them with their parents, just to parallel how their childhoods were before the war.
-"WWII" and how they're involved
-"Atmosphere" (Darwinisty/airy)
-"At the Walker shop" (clankery/bulky machinery and... oh yes, engine grease :D )
-Popular early 20th century dancing. coughcoughSWINGcoughcough
-the obligatory "potatoes"
-"Peace Time" (as opposed to war time)
-"Missions"

I'm so excited! I hope I don't have artist block that week :D
