I had proposed a contest idea a while back, where people would tell their stories of illness and recovery through art. People seemed to like this idea a LOT, but they felt it shouldn't be a contest per se but rather a challenge. (I think this means that people should tell their story because they want to tell their story, and not because they are getting some prize from it.)
So, I was thinking maybe we can encourage people to participate in monthly challenges again, with the features at the end of the month. I will up the ante and say that I'll give a small prize (like a 3-month subscription or maybe even 1,000 points) to the most creative and meaningful entry, as decided by you all.
These challenges will start in December and will be thematic (they will focus on a specific topic, such as recovery or hope). All art media will be accepted.
