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

To be honest, I would save my points and give them to people who have empty donation pools. I find it kind of sad that some really amazing artists have absolutely no points! I remember when I had a donation pool, and I waited for at least 3 months before anybody gave me a point. I remember how happy I was, and would like others to feel that way too. :happybounce:

i am hoping to save up for a print and give it to my grandma. she is going through a lot right now and i feel that giving her a nice print to hang up on her wall would cheer her up. she's VERY catholic and her husband (my grandpa) just died recently due to a rare blood disorder so i am planning on getting her a quote painting, a cross painting, or a jesus painting to feel warm inside. vuv but i don't need the points even though i don't have any. i can probably find one in stores.

What would i do with the points

First I would go through my favs and see if i can buy some prints to not only support that artist, but to also have a print that i love and can see everyday.  If I have any points left over I would then get my self a membership for this site.  After I do that, and if I have points left over I would look to commission other artists that are open to points.  That Way the points go to other people that use this site.  Pikachu Loves It Plz

Oh, I think that if I won it, i would use it to commission some lesser known artists and encourage them to keep doing what they do, because I know that not that many artists feel that great about their art (like me)

What we'd do with points would most likely be save them up and give to others that need or deserve them~ That's mainly what we've used them for in the past, that and we have asked for a commission or two as well, but that's quite rare of us to do~ So yes, we'd probably end up giving them to someone else who needs/deserves them, and maybe eventually we will do a Point Giveaway of our own~ We're not sure when that'd be, though... >w<;;;

With a few extra point i would save up to work on getting a premium membership, or get a commission done. I feel that maybe if I have the membership then I might help in pursuing better art and the commission then maybe I could get an OC done digital better then what I could do myself. that's what I would do with a few extra points.

Hmm.... well, I have a clear idea where all my points would go to. Me and my best friend ~Fenixiie are making our own adoptables site (named Wild ones), she's the coder and I'll be the artist. The project is still pending, since we'll wait till we finish an important school project we're working on together before she starts coding. We do need some good art though and we have various ideas for everything c: I'm in charge of creating the pets, since I do something similar for a site I visit, but we need a logo and background. We plan to commission someone to make us at least the logo and I'll probably make the background, since it was my idea how it would look ^-^ We even have a certain person we'd like to commishion x3 ... Eh, long text is long XD

I would use the points to get a print so my friends or fellow DA gets the artwork in their hands. I didn't know how to get it when I first became a DA member so I left it alone for a while.  Then I'll save the rest of the points so I can give them as a gift to my friends who love the DA community.

With a few extra points, I would like to donate to artists whom I've admired for a long time and has always longed to give them something but has never had the means to do so. I've always kinda felt ashamed that I couldn't do anything but like and comment on their work. Commissioning people is also a possibility! :)

Honestly, it would probably just sit in my balance until I'd added it to more points so that I had enough to commission multiple people. :'D I probably would need more points if I wanted a print, so I would have to save this and add it to points earned from adopts or commissions if I was going to get something I really wanted.
