Does fic or art make you happy in the winter cold? Send a warm line of comments to your favorite creators, and get entered to win free drawings!
Just for the holidays, some of the nicest artists on tumblr are offering rewards for commenting on fanwork. For each comment you make, you can be entered into a daily drawing for a sketch from one of these talented artists. So, give a comment, have the chance to get a lovely sketch and make a creator’s day. From December 1st until the 31st, help everyone celebrate the best parts of fandom!
Les Misérables fandom is a community, but it’s becoming a quiet one lately. Leaving feedback for your favorite writers and artists not only makes their day, but it keeps them coming back to fandom again and again with new, cool stuff. Fandoms that don’t give feedback are fandoms that shrink. As the year draws to an end, lots of artists and ficwriters are struggling with deadlines and their entries to various seasonal challenges. Give them a bit of encouragement, and remind them of all the good parts of Les Miz fandom.
Do you find commenting hard? Tell the creator you appreciate their work, mention some favourite details, keyboardsmash as needed. Don’t let yourself feel intimidated that you’ll get something ‘wrong’ in your comment - enthusiasm counts for a lot!
Each comment amounts to one entry for that day’s drawing. All comments must be on Les Misérables fics or art posted to AO3 which have less than 70 comments on them already. Let’s try to spread out the love! Once you’ve left your little bit of holiday joy in someone’s inbox, go to our contest form here and provide your email address or tumblr handle and a link to your comment - you’re entered as easily as that! There is no limit to the amount of entries you can make a day, and even just one comment qualifies you to win fabulous prizes.
Winners will be announced weekly. We’re keeping the artists of the day under wraps until after the daily drawings to ensure that participation throughout the contest is as even as possible and no one is crowding for any particular artist’s sketches. Winners will know who their artist is before they provide their prompt, however.
If you are an artist who would like to participate, or if you have any questions about the contest, please message the mod either here, through her personal blog sathinfection, or her email sathwrites[at]gmail[dot]com.
Current list of participating artists:
Nisie, Morgan, Melannen, Perry, Ireny, Murderoidz, Pilferingapples, Vejiicakes, Ellevante, Maddie, and Noyades
