Congrats to our competition winners from last week Orb Baller and Synic!
Our next art competition has the theme ‘perspective’. We’re allowing both AI art (if you’re not familiar, check out Midjourney, Stable Diffusion, or Dall-e) and original art, so everyone will be able to participate.
Our next photography competition has the theme ’round’, so get out into nature to win some points and bling your profile.
