It has become something of a tradition that every year our little community comes together and creates something for the entire forum to enjoy over Christmas. In the past we have had collaborative advent calendars with a different piece behind every window every day, and last year we celebrated the 12 days of Christmas with a new present to open every morning from the 25th onwards. Now that we are SONM, this year's project will be guaranteed to be more super than ever!
Can I contribute/take part?
Yes, definitely! The project will be open to all members, regardless of ability or preferred medium. You could draw some traditional art, take a photo, design a graphic, write a poem or short story, or even record a video or song. If it's acceptable in GAAW it will be acceptable in the GAAW Christmas Project, so go crazy!
More details about taking part will be made available soon when the project is announced, but if you would like to declare your interest already then feel free to do so here!
That's right! GAAW's Christmas Project 2014 is called Countdown to Christmas! For the 10 days leading up until Christmas a new piece will be revealed, created by one of you lovely GAAW members! Your contribution can be anything that you like, as long as it keeps with SONM rules, be it a piece of art, a graphic, a poem, a story, a video or even a song!
Simply post here to sign-up and say which day from the following list that you'd like, and then get to work! The deadline for submissions will simply be 3 days before they are due to be put up online, but the earlier you can get your submission in the better! We really appreciate early contributions as it really helps with organisation. Remember that submissions should be made by PM to me (OrangeRakoon) so as to not spoil the surprise. If more than 10 people sign up, then the extra pieces will all be revealed on Christmas day, giving a bumper-crop of presents for Christmas itself!
Along with the collaborative Christmas Project, this year we are also introducing a competition to design the Christmas SONM banner. The task will be to create a Christmas themed banner to replace the standard design that appears at the top of the forum, and the winner will have their design used on SONM for the entirety of December, along with earning a GAAW Xmas 2014 Contributor profile badge/title to keep and show off!
The competition is open for entries now (just post in this thread) and will close on Friday 28th November. The winner will then be chosen and announced and the new banner used from December 1st!
If you want to take part, then check the submission thread for all of the information and resources that you need. Good luck!

I forgot to mention, submissions should obviously be made by PM so that the surprise is not ruined in advance.
