December's TOP Subs of Unframed-Nature and NEWS!

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 12, 2013, 4:51 PM

Welcome to December 2012’s Top Submissions of Unframed-Nature.
:iconhappysunplz:

Thank you for being here whether you are a Member yet or not!
We welcome you and your support! :thanks:


Since the beginning of January 2012, we’ve grown just over 1,500 Members!
That means, in one year, we’ve grown between 125 and 150 Members per month!
:omg: :party: :party: :party: :omg:

So, a GRAND Welcome to ALL of Our NEW MEMBERS!

:squee:  :clap: :clap: :clap:  :squee:

Thank you to our loyal Members who have been submitting to our Group for a long time now. Without you, we wouldn’t be here. :aww:

:iconwhiteflowerplz:


Thank you to ALL of the ADMINISTRATORS who helped me with this Group Article by voting on this monthly event!
:iconiloveit-plz:

We usually have an ALL-MEMBERSHIP voting, as we believe this is the Group's Group, but once in a while, we will have a few months during the year, where only the Admins. vote.

We completely appreciate our Admins. for supporting our Group in this particular way, both for December, and for EACH month that they help by voting on work for this Article. It is so generous of each of them to take the extra time to VOTE!  You are fabulous!!

:clap: :heart: :clap:

:new: If you have not yet seen this, it would be a great idea to do so, since we do have a couple changes in our original general folders, and also since we have added NEW folders:
COMPLETE FAQ and Folder Rules for Unframed-Nature:iconhappysunplz: Welcome to Unframed-Nature,
and to Our NEW Complete Group FAQ & Folder Rules for 2013!
:iconhappysunplz:
:iconcip25::iconcip26::iconcip27::iconcip28::iconcip29::iconcip26::iconcip25:
:iconwhiteflowerplz: Introduction and Welcome! :iconwhiteflowerplz:
First, I would like to take a moment to wish ALL of our Admins., Members, and Friends of our Group,
A TRULY WONDERFUL YEAR in 2013!
:iconnewyear2plz:
Below you will find our Group's New FAQ, New Folder Rules, and New Folders for 2013.
This Group News Article, intends to contain everything you need to know, in order to understand what we are about at Unframed-Nature, and what types of art work we are looking for, in each one of our folders.
We have made a few changes to our current folders, in order to hopefully clarify a few issues we've had during the past year, and we've added a few NEW folders, in hopes to give more meaning to our group, with both a

I tried to place a "Table of Contents" or "Bookmarks" at the top, so that there would be clickable links to take you to the section you would need, whenever you continued to refer to this throughout the year, so that you wouldn't have to scroll through the length of it, each time.
However, I found out that dA does not support the HTML code in order to do this.

:note: At least the inside of each gallery folder has all the information and rules needed, for your convenience, and the convenience of our Admins.


Let’s continue to submit our own BEST QUALITY work, enjoy it, improve upon it, enjoy the work of others, and Nature in general. It’s what it’s all about-
combining our art with our love of Nature, and coming together under that commonality!

Without further ado...


Please Enjoy The Voted Top Submissions of DECEMBER 2012.
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL SELECTED IN DECEMBER!


[:note: Each section/folder has a small group, at the VERY TOP, where those had received just slightly more votes. These will be copied to the Featured Folder.
The others are in no particular order.]

:iconflower-plz: From: December 2012's THEME FOLDER: Decorated Holiday TREES!

Thank you to ALL of the participants who submitted a decorated Holiday Tree!
They were just beautiful!
:heart:

We had twenty-two Members who participated, and I think that's GREAT considering it was a sort of unique theme to have for our Group. :aww:

Additionally, as you may recall from reading about this theme, this theme was really just for fun.
There was no announcement of placements with any kind of prizes, which is often what turns our themes into small Mini-Contests.

So for this theme, a feature of ALL the participants will be included here,
and each participant will receive a very small amount of "participation points" :points: equal with everyone who participated...
[except for me- I will not be giving myself any points from the group].
The total amount points given out for these "participation points" will be kept under, what is usually spent on a Monthly Theme, just so you know! :aww:

Also, I MAY choose a few of these to copy over to the Featured Folder, but... I am not sure yet, if I will actually do that.

Without further ado, HERE IS A FEATURE OF ALL OF OUR WONDERFUL PARTICIPANTS, in chronological order of submission. :D

Admins. for Unframed-Nature!


We are still willing to take applications if you are interested in joining our team!
Please read the following application, and then answer the questions inside, and then NOTE your answers to me,
Tea, TeaPhotography

Administrator Application for Unframed-NatureUnframed-Nature's Application for Administrative Position
Accepting Applications for Administrator Positions at Unframed-Nature is now: OPEN!
Introduction
Before you apply, please know that volunteering for a large and active group here on dA, such as Unframed-Nature is a real and true commitment, which will take up some of your time on at least a weekly basis, maybe more.
Unframed-Nature is special in many ways, but from an Administrative view point, it is very special because we have always had good luck with our current Administrators, most of which have been with the Group, as Administrators, for a very long time.
We are a very friendly Team, both with each other, and with the Members, as well. This means when we do have to decline works, we do give a reason, and we are friendly about it.  It means, that upon occasion if there is something that we disagree about within the Admin. Team, we disagree nic


:note: And remember, it is NOT as formal as it looks, and of course you do NOT need to know everything,
but it is a very helpful tool for us to assess who might know what. :aww:

:thanks: :heart: :thanks:




:iconballoonsplz: Our Group’s NEWS & UPCOMING EVENTS! :iconballoonsplz:

VERY Important Group News!

In case you did NOT realize it...

We did re-open again!!!
:iconlawooplz:
We re-opened on January 8th, 2013!

Again, I DO want to point THIS out:

COMPLETE FAQ and Folder Rules for Unframed-Nature:iconhappysunplz: Welcome to Unframed-Nature,
and to Our NEW Complete Group FAQ & Folder Rules for 2013!
:iconhappysunplz:
:iconcip25::iconcip26::iconcip27::iconcip28::iconcip29::iconcip26::iconcip25:
:iconwhiteflowerplz: Introduction and Welcome! :iconwhiteflowerplz:
First, I would like to take a moment to wish ALL of our Admins., Members, and Friends of our Group,
A TRULY WONDERFUL YEAR in 2013!
:iconnewyear2plz:
Below you will find our Group's New FAQ, New Folder Rules, and New Folders for 2013.
This Group News Article, intends to contain everything you need to know, in order to understand what we are about at Unframed-Nature, and what types of art work we are looking for, in each one of our folders.
We have made a few changes to our current folders, in order to hopefully clarify a few issues we've had during the past year, and we've added a few NEW folders, in hopes to give more meaning to our group, with both a


We have enough changes, all together, to warrant everyone, Members and Administrators, alike, to become familiar with everything that is NEW for our Group in 2013!

Again, I apologize for the length... but it IS a "FAQ Sheet"...
And again, I'm sorry I am unable to place the HTML Codes within the Article, so that you would only need to click on what you wanted to read, at the TOP, so it could take you to where you wanted within the Article.
Unfortunately you will have to scroll, after all.

:note: But for everyone's convenience, ALL info. and rules for EACH folder, is conveniently located within EACH folder.

Thank you for your attention to these matters,
as taking NOTE of these items, will certainly help our group to run more smoothly!


:rose: :thanks: :rose:



Our Group’s Upcoming THEMES

:pointr: FEBRUARY 2013 - Our Group's First THEME of 2013!
:heart: Heart-Shaped Nature :heart:

:iconlovesqueeplz::iconlovesqueeplz::iconlovesqueeplz::iconlovesqueeplz::iconlovesqueeplz:

Opens: Feb. 1st, along with our other five original Folders!
Closes: Feb. 28th

:bulletpink: ONE Entry per Member!
:bulletpink: Submit One Entry that contains a visible and obvious HEART within Nature or made from Nature.
:bulletpink: It should either be a heart that is occurring Naturally, or at least one that appears Natural- such as if it has been "placed" there, like in a photo-manipulation, as long as it is a HEART that looks Natural, OR
it COULD be a heart that is created using materials FROM Nature, such as in a Conceptual or Still Life piece.

This theme is great for a wide variety of Art-Media, which is good, since we are an ALL-Media group!
This idea can be represented with photography, traditional, digital, photo-manips., fractals, animations, etc.,
it could even be presented in literature, by writing about hearts found in Nature!

:bulletpink: Common examples of this are:
heart-shaped leaves, flower petals which are heart-shaped- usually with using two petals, two flowers that appear to make a heart shape, two pine cones together, leaves or other things in Nature placed in the shape of a heart, an animal lying down in what looks like the shape of a heart, two or more animals which when placed or laying together are making a heart shape, two or more insects which when close together create a heart shape, heart-shaped clouds, a heart seen within the refraction of a water drop, and probably MUCH MORE! 
:nod: :heart:


:bulletblack: Be careful with humans, architecture, and transportation... it is possible such items could be present in the submission, since we do now have a special folder where these items can be PART of a NATURE submission.
Just be sure that the submission is actually about NATURE!
Similarly, if it's a Still Life, Conceptual, Abstract etc., as long as the focus is about Nature, and we can see the heart that is Natural, or made to look Natural, or made FROM Nature, then we can accept it!


There really is lots of lee-way, so HAVE FUN WITH THIS!

:iconlovesqueeplz::iconlovesqueeplz::iconlovesqueeplz:

:trophy: Our Group's NEXT BIG CONTEST :trophy:

Probably, sometime in SPRING of 2013! :la:


Super Group Renewal!
WE RENEWED OUR SUPER GROUP STATUS, on DECEMBER 1st, 2012, FOR ANOTHER YEAR!

:iconteamoplz: :icongrouphugplz::icongrouphugplz: :iconspreadmoreloveplz::iconspreadmoreloveplz: :icongrouphugplz::icongrouphugplz: :iconteamoplz:

This could never have happened without all of our amazingly generous donors of POINTS! :points:

Last year, before we went Super Group for the first time, I wasn't sure about the benefits of becoming a Super Group,
but after a year of working within the group under this status, I have utilized many of possible benefits available.

If not for any reason, it certainly does help with a lot of the management side of things, i.e., folders etc.,

Thank you again for being so kindly generous!

:new: As an added bonus for donors of points, the Points Account: Unframed-Nature-PTS gave out an extra :+fav:
to ALL the works that were in our Featured Folder... and remember, that A LOT of the work from the "Group DONORS' Folder" is RE-featured in our Group Journals here, and those works are COPIED into the FEATURED FOLDER! :heart:
We will continue to do this with our POINTS ACCOUNT, as an extra thank-you to donors, as well as an extra little Bonus for everyone who has ART which gets into The Featured Folder!

To find out how Art gets into the Featured Folder, feel free to read right inside of that folder. :aww:

:iconshinyheartplz:


:icondonatepointsgreenplz: Points for Our Group :icondonatepointsgreenplz:

First of all, Unframed-Nature can not thank enough our very generous Members, and Administrators alike, who have Donated and continue to Donate :points: Points to our Group! A few of them have done so, multiple times! :rose:

:iconrbheartplz:

As we look to 2013, for our Group here, we DO plan on having AT LEAST our TWO MAIN BIG Contests, that we usually host, one in the Spring and one in the Autumn...

We would also like to host more Monthly Themes, which we treat as Mini-Contests!

Our FIRST Monthly Theme for 2013, is planned for February...

And of course we would like to have enough again, to renew our Super Group later in 2013...

To achieve the above in a great way, feel free to donate to our Group!

The Widget is HERE:
:points: Unframed-Nature-PTS :iconunframed-nature-pts: :points:


Any and ALL Donations are always HIGHLY appreciated... and you will read there how you will be recognized and rewarded for your kind generosity!
