As soon as I possibly can, after the 7th, I will assemble and log the votes, into my spreadsheet, and THEN put together the Group News Article: "The Top Submissions..."
to showcase both months' work, which the Members have voted on.
This Group is a SENSATIONAL TEAM!
On behalf of the Administrators, we thank you for your really REMARKABLE submissions during SEPTEMBER & OCTOBER!
Keep up the AWESOMENESS! PLEASE NOTE:
Regarding our "FOUR Special Folders"
Work from these folders WILL be included, too!!!
Just leave it to Yours Truly, aka your Team Leader, and with great difficulty, I will select a few (of the many) fabulous works from each of these most wonderful folders, and feature them also in the next "TOP SUBS OF SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER 2014" Our Group’s NEWS & UPCOMING EVENTS! Unframed-Nature's UpComing News Articles
"The TOP Subs of SEPTMBER-OCTOBER 2014" News Article, should come out by mid-NOVEMBER, about the 15th or so.
We will have a separate Article out, hopefully, about a week later around Nov. 22nd in regard to our current contest's WINNERS!!!!! Upcoming Themes & Contests

: Awesome ABSTRACTS of AUTUMN:
Unframed-Nature's Next BIG Contest: AUTUMN...:iconzubatlaplz: Welcome to Unframed-Nature's Next BIG Contest :iconzubatlaplz:
:iconpumpkinborderplz: Autumn THEME 2014: "AWESOME ABSTRACTS of AUTUMN!" :iconpumpkinborderplz:
Let's Get ABSTRACT, and Let's BE AWESOME about it!
Unframed-Nature would like to try something a little different, as a group, for this Contest.
Using themes, colours, scenes, and feelings of the Season of Autumn, as we experience the season wherever we live around the globe, we would like to see artistic depictions and expression of Autumn as ABSTRACT ART.
This works well for media such as:
Photography, Traditional, Digital, Fractals, Collage, Mixed Media, Literature, and more, including some of their sub-categories.
If genre is new or semi-new to you, my most basic way to think about Abstract work, is in using these three together:
1. COLOUR- usually brighter than not, and how the colours work together.
2. CURVES, oft

Probably a last THEME of the YEAR in DECEMBER!
THEME: To Be Announced. POINTS for Our Group!
From the bottom of our HEARTS,
we thank you, as your generous acts do not go unnoticed!
The NEXT BIG CONTEST of the Year is taking place (currently) around this OCTOBER/NOVEMEBER.
(We have TWO HUGE CONTESTS per Year!)
We will continue with our Monthly Themes, which are much smaller point prizes.
The NEXT/Last Theme of 2014 will be in December!!
We sometimes use points for other special occasions or circumstances, on a smaller scales.
At this point, we DO plan to renew our SUPERGROUP Status THIS DECEMBER- which is coming up VERY SOON!
These are some of the things that your generous points help us to be able to accomplish. Thank you again for your fabulous help!
To help us to achieve these plans and goals, if you do have a few points to spare, feel free to donate to our group, HERE: Unframed-Nature-PTS
Any point helps, and you will read there, how our donors are rewarded! Admins. for Unframed-Nature!
If you would be interested in becoming a part of our wonderful Admin. Team PLEASE NOTE ME, TeaPhotography
You may want to LOOK at our APPLICATION, first, and answer as many questions as you can, or feel like answering.
It is just SO much more INFORMAL than it looks- really!
It just gives us an idea, as well, as you, our potentially newest Admin., a general idea of things.
Administrator Application for Unframed-NatureUnframed-Nature's Application for Administrative Position
Accepting Applications for Administrator Positions at Unframed-Nature is now: OPEN!
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
And you do NOT have to be qualified in every area, AT ALL, to become a part of the Team!
Thank you to all of our current Admins., for such willingness to be so helpful! REMINDERS of a Couple of Changes...
We are going to take the MAIN Nature folders and have them run BI-MONTHLY. That means voting every OTHER month, and "TOP SUBS of TWO MONTHS AT A TIME
" News Articles, etc.
WHY? The main reason this is coming about is because, since last Summer, I have been forced to delete folders at our group, which has really broken my heart, since the first time and each time since.
Periodically, I am NOT allowed to create NEW folders until I delete OTHER folders. It's a pain in the neck, it's very sad, and it also makes the job extra difficult.
Apparently there IS a limit, and we are definitely at our capacity.
By doing this, it will at least slow things down and I won't have to worry about it, quite as often.
But then as a small side bonus, I have realized it will help with less work for me, for a couple of reasons... less time opening and closing folders, and less time working on spreadsheets and creating news articles-
In general, in life, I am burning the candle at both ends, AND the middle, so this might help a bit.
month, when we are transitioning to new folders, and we are temporarily closed, instead of being closed for a few hours, I am going to have us be TEMPORARILY CLOSED for the first week
- which means will will re-open on July 8th, then Sept. 8th, then November 8th...
This gives us a lot more breathing room, both for group purposes- time for work on the group itself, and for any personal breathing room, too. COMMUNITY GROUPS, WE CONTINUE TO SUPPORT!
Feel free to check them out, you'll be glad you did! Other AWESOME Groups, Founded by our own ADMINS., HERE!
