Edit!- Hey guys! Sooo...I got wayyy more comments than I was anticipating ^^; I want to be fair and read all of them, so I am going to take a day or two to pick the winners.  I wish I could be faster, but during the week days time is so constricted!  
On a separate note- everyone who tweeted for my previous giveaway that gave me their address should be expecting something in the mail very soon!

Hey guys! I've been seeing a lot of point giveaways on deviantART, and so I thought I might do my own.  This is apart of my 'Giving Back' campaign that I am trying to launch on my profile.

Anyway, I love deviantART's point system for a number of reasons. 
One of my favorite aspects of this system is that it encourages young artists to become entrepreneurs. Younger artists who may not be able to set up a paypal account or deal with other forms of online payment just yet, can take safety in the dA points system.  They can learn how to price their work, deal with clients, and buy artwork or services of their own.  I think this can be a wonderful learning tool and can prepare young artists for the real world art market.
I also love that points can be used as prizes in contests.  Deviants who may not have the means to offer more expensive prizes can use the dA point system to draw contestants in.
 
Whatever the case, most deviants do have a clear idea of what they would do with a few extra points.
I want to hear those ideas!

:star: To enter: Simply tell me what you would do with a few extra points! Would you host a contest? Commission an artist? Save up for a print?  I want to hear!
Note: This is not one of those "favorite to win" or "watch to win" contests.  There is no need to watch my profile or favorite this journal (unless you want to).  However, it might be kind of cool to share this journal with your watchers if you want to :D

:star: I will pick:
-One lucky winner who will win 400 points
-3 winners who will win 100 points each
-4 winners who will win 50 points each
-4 winners who will win 25 points each


I'm going to let this contest run for roughly 24 hours, and I will pick the winners tomorrow!

I want this contest to have many winners so that many different people can benefit :)

As many others have said, id use my points to commission others, so I could get art for my friends and myself. Id also use them to buy adoptables XD.

 

I couldn't remember if I had already entered or not and my profile doesn't love me right now XD

Well i wanted the points because for me it is really hard to get points i am only 14 so i can not really get a job nor pay-pal cause my parents are just assholes (then they also won't let me use theirs) and i spend literally 8 hours a day at most on DA and i love a lot of artists and would love so much for them to draw for me cause i treasure art like I treasure music c: Also i would probably give points to people who ALSO do not have money for commission cause it is always painful not to have points when you REALLY want a drawing .n. (Especially when your artist only takes commission once every few months) Even though i would like the points i hope the best for everyone who enters :D

Hmmm, well I don't really think there is a point in lying, so I am not going to say I am going to give them away, because this is a rare chance for me to get points.
I am a kid, 14, I can't earn money to buy points, and I am not the...."best" drawer and do commissions.
I would probably commission one of my favorite artists, I've only ever had a few commissions, and that was for different online currency that I can earn a bit more easily <3 So it would be kind of a treat for me ^^

Honestly, that is really my only reason <3
It would mean a lot to me if you picked me as a winner! <3
And of course, thank you for the chance <3

Hope Im not to late. 
Im saving up so that I can hold contests of my own. The whole process look so fun and I am hoping to meet new artists through it. Secondly there is one particular print that I would like to get. My boyfriend and I are looking for a new apartment and we would both want this to be hanging in the living room
