:iconearthplz: Welcome to Unframed-Nature's BIG CONTEST RESULTS for: "EARTH DAY- EARTH'S WONDERS OF WATER" :iconearthplz:


We had nearly 50 incredibly brilliant entries pertaining to WATER, and more specifically, the environmental issues that concern our planet, with regard to the various problems all living creatures face pertaining to this essential resource and life force.

The entry was supposed to depict water, in some way and medium, BUT with an obvious connection to an environment message about water, and if the connection was not necessarily obvious, there was supposed to be a special message about water from the artist, stated IN the Artist's Comments.

Most of our judges were pretty strict about this rule... while quality of submission was certainly important, it was more essential that there was a message about the importance of water or some sort of educational statement somewhere in the Artist's Comments, as stated in the rules, and our judges on the whole did not give up on the purpose and intent of this contest! :la:

It was definitely not easy, in the least, and our group commends them GREATLY for their time and huge efforts, in this enormous endeavor!!

:clap: :rose: :clap: :rose: :clap: :rose: :clap:


And PLEASE, believe me when I say, our AWESOME Administrative Team also worked very very hard on this Contest!!
There's a lot I can say about what went into what their efforts involved, too. :nod:

Tobby - the little friend... by painted-leafPandora - a beautiful world... by painted-leaf Weeds of HumanityThere was a town deep in the woods, far from every other cities and villages of the world. They were always happy and satisfied with the things they had. The town was built around a big field where the community together could raise plants they needed. Each year when the time comes, the villagers went to the filed, worked on, and at harvest time, all of them took only the amount they really needed.
But the time passed, and once at harvest time a greedy man took more than he would have needed. The villagers didn't take it bad, they forgave and behave as nothing would happen. This behavior also wasn't a good example to the other people... Next year, that man repeated the same mistake. So than some people said "How is this possible? We work for only what we need, and then the other takes the fruit of our work too? What about us? About our wealth and survivor?" - So this way, other people started to take more and more for themselves too.
Next year, the half of the village lived happ

There are so many environmental issues, which do, in fact, adversely affect Earth, our common home.
Sometimes, it can seem over

:iconredroseplz: EIGHT Honourable Mentions :iconredroseplz:

We had a few other entries, which also had high voting scores from the judges, enough
to justify sharing a section of Honourable Mentions. They also exhibited strong messages about water!
These may not have been promised the prizes or features,
which are due to the top eight winners, but of course they are featured right HERE, and they will ALSO
be moved to the Featured Folder, which means eventually they will be :+fav:'d by our POINTS ACCOUNT:
Unframed-Nature-PTS :iconunframed-nature-pts:
AND, additionally we will give each one a tiny amount of points, 5 :points: each from Unframed-Nature-PTS.

To another.
Across the world
I bring light
I bring wonder
I am the one
Who you will always remember.
On your faces
I see smile
Which never ceases,
I am the recipe
For happiness.
In my entire life
My goal was to help,
But now the night comes
And I fall asleep.
Do not worry
Reincarnation
Will bring me back
Into a new life
Filled with a beautiful sunset.

I understand very well... it seems the founder has not been around for a very very long time... I have tried to contact her, but I have had no replies... it also seems that I am the only other admin., who is enabled to accept submissions, but unfortunately, I really do not have too much time, given all ten groups I have, and the fact that I simply am busy with my own life, in general.

I have tried to fix this issue, but I do not have ability to fix submissions.

i will be here to accept when I can, but I do not promise much... I have only been able to come here about twice a month lately... and I KNOW that is not enough for only one admin., able to help with a group, and I deeply apologize.

Do you have the ability to switch them off? Traditional-Artists does that after a set time so they can sort through all the submissions. If it's possible, then I say do it until you can wade through, or until the others get back.

Thank you very much for getting back to me, I really appreciate the time taken to answer back.

Its so bad that the founder isn't around very much nowadays, this is a great group I would hate to see it waste away.

I can fully understand that you've been very busy with this group as well as the others you run - and even more so with having a busy life outside of the internet, not everything in your life needs to revolve around dA, I can fully appreciate that ;)

Thank you again for getting back to me with the answer, it's good to know there is someone still trying to keep this group afloat :aww:
