First of all, I would like to thank each and every one of you for helping me to fulfill my dream of bringing forth a meaningful science fiction shared universe. It has been an incredible experience so far, and the One-Planet-at-a-Time Project would not be what it is today without your support.
I am writing this in order to let you know that I will be off dA May 12 through June 20. The last call for submissions before that time period is this Saturday 11am EST. I will be back on dA June 21 and contest winners will be announced July 1 as previously planned. You are welcome to submit artwork between May 12 and June 20: IF THE SUBMISSION EXPIRES DO NOT WORRY. I SEE EVERYTHING THAT GETS SUBMITTED HERE AND EVEN IF YOUR SUBMISSION HAS EXPIRED I WILL BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO ADD IT TO YOUR RESPECTIVE FOLDER MANUALLY WHEN I GET BACK.
At June 21 this specific journal entry will be deleted and things will return to business as usual. If you are new to this group please feel free to check out the last News Update
2013, Second Quarter News UpdateOne-Planet-at-a-Time Quarterly News Update: Second Quarter, 2013
NEWS: There are now ten sectors within our shared universe, and a few collaborations have already begun to spring up among various world builders. With 200+ members, the OPaaT universe is slowly emerging as a nexus of creativity and collaboration within the DA science fiction community.
I would also like to announce that the WorldBuildersGuild is hosting an exciting writing contest (http://my.deviantart.com/art/Competition-World-Building-With-Words-359431576) until April 30. This contest is very well organized, and it would be well worth your while to check it out if you are verbally inclined. For more information, see the “World Building With Words Competition Tips” (http://my.deviantart.com/art/World-Building-With-Words-Competition-Tips-359794514).
