Acts of Random Kindness Secret Santa

Tue Dec 20, 2016, 4:00 PM

Hi everyone!

We're fast approaching Christmas, and Secret Santa events have been underway all throughout DeviantArt. Instead of hosting an event where you create art for someone and receive art in return, we are hosting an ARKs Secret Santa! :la:

What are ARKs?

"Acts of Random Kindness" are works or deeds done to help or otherwise assist another person on deviantART. On DeviantArt, journals, deviations, comments, forum posts, etc can all be the home of an ARK.

ARKworks are ARKs in the form of artwork. They can be literature, digital, traditional... any kind of media thinkable! To be classified as an ARKwork, the art must show, in some way (in the art or art description), that it is FOR another person or cause. This does not mean for a person to USE. This means the work was created as a gift of some kind... And gifts can be classified in many different ways such as a special commission or kiriban, a special art trade or collab, a completed request, and more. ARKworks can also be used to promote positivity by giving a special cause or event a promotion through the use of artwork.

remARKs are just what they sound like... features and comments! Mostly done as positive journal features or comments, remARKs literally "remark" on a special person or group of people in the deviantART community. These can be a journal or news article featuring art or other artists, a series of comments made to a user who needs a little positivity in their day, a comment (or two) for a random deviant, a front page feature for a specific artwork, user, group... anything. As an example, the Featured Heartist is a remARK!

So how does this Secret Santa work?

Instead of giving art to someone else, you're giving away ARKs! We want to spread the holiday cheer through random acts of kindness, and encourage you to do so as well! Leave someone a comment, a few words of encouragement, surprise them with a feature or create gift art for them - there are so many things you can do, and you might make someone's day in the process.

The Rules

:bulletred: Because of the nature of ARKs (R = "Random") you can't really sign up to receive something in return, but I'll keep track of all those participating anyway, so that I can give everyone a big thank you (and maybe a little surprise) after New Year's. 

:bulletred: The ARKs Secret Santa starts today and ends January 4, so you have two weeks to shower everyone with acts of random kindness! :la:

:bulletred: If you participate in our ARKs Secret Santa please send us a note including the ARKs you did for this event until January 4.

:bulletred: Feel free to submit your ARKworks to the ARKworks gallery and your remARKs to the remARKs gallery!

Let's spread the love! Christmas La
