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

combining our art with our love of Nature, and coming together under that commonality!
Without further ado...
Please Enjoy The Voted Top Submissions of May 2012.

All-Media Welcome that would fit this theme.

NO muted tones, sepias, tints, colour-selections. Stick to the THEME.
This theme is pretty black and white.
You May Submit, ANYTHING that you would normally submit to ANY of our five regular folders, as long as it follows our Group’s regular rules!
If you are NOT sure, check INSIDE of each folder for the specific rules for that folder.
Or for the overview our Group, which includes the rules for our Group,
go HERE: unframed-nature.deviantart.com…
It may be old or new, but not previously submitted to the Group.
Submit your VERY BEST, as our Monthly Themes are treated as MINI-CONTESTS!!!
Members will VOTE, on what they feel is the TOP, during the WEEK of voting, on “TOP SUBMISSIONS of JULY” [Aug. 1st - Aug. 7th]
They WON’T vote on their own, in this folder, if they’ve participated to it.
1st - 125 & Big Feature
2nd - 75 & Big Feature
Two Runners Up - 20 EACH, and Feature
All from Unframed-Nature
If anyone is promoting this July Theme/Mini-Contest, it is appreciated.
It’s not required to link back to this blog about the Monthly Theme, or to the Theme Folder, in your Artist Comments, the way we ALWAYS REQUIRE for our BIG CONTESTS. But you can if you want. It’s OPTIONAL.
We have begun to kindly ask for POINTS again for our group, because after especially our BIG Contest, we will need to build back up, A LOT, to help especially with the BIG ITEMS coming up for the REST OF 2012:
Our annual Autumn Contest
SuperGroup renewal in December
[We also hope to hold Monthly Themes, as Mini-Contests, most months.]
We don’t want to be rushed at the end of the year, when it comes to renewing, Super Group.
