The RateMyDrawings Artist Awards
RateMyDrawings is proud to announce our annual Artist Awards.
We honor and thank amazing artists for their contributions to our community.
At the end of each year, we will be selecting individual members who have contributed to our community in a way that stands out and makes them a valuable member to so many others in our community. These individuals have shown either some type of skill, unique talent, or contributed in a way that betters our community. Winners will be chosen by Mick Gow (RateMyDrawings founder), with the exception of one award - The People's Choice.
The Hand-picked Artist Awards
To be eligible for one of the hand-picked awards, you must have contributed to our community in a memorable way throughout the year. This does not necessarily mean the top artist, but there will be some quality that makes you stand out and make us want to thank you personally for everything you have contributed.
The People's Choice Award
Our community would not be a true community if we could not find a way to let all our members have a voice, so we have included one People's Choice Award. This will be a vote by members for who they think has been their favorite artist throughout the year. Only members with more than 5 drawings who have been members for more than 1 month may vote as we feel only these members have a true sense of who might be the most deserving of this award.
Winners announced January 15, 2012. Voting for People's Choice closes January 13, 2011.
Each winner will be able to choose a prize that consists of one of the following:
- An Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk gift certificate for US$60
- A Wacom Bamboo Pen Tablet (only available is some countries)
- A copy of ArtRage 3 Studio Pro
- A Redbubble.com gift certificate for US$60
- RMD will arrange alternate prizes for people who live in countries that do not offer the above prizes
