Hi everybody :wave:

Are you passionate about photography? Do you enjoy partaking in social media or other leadership-like roles? Can you work with a small team and communicate? Are you on deviantART frequently, if not every day?

If you answered yes to any or all of these questions and are interested in becoming a co-founder/a staff to help run this lovely group comment here and let us know!! We really do need the help. There are currently over 5,000 members in this group so it will help you to get more recognition as well if that's what you're looking for.

You will be responsible for voting on submissions, replying to questions/comments of members, and helping out with the monthly submission theme. Sometimes that means making journal entries as well.

Thank you for your time and once again, comment below in this entry letting us know if you would like to join and are up to the task! We would like friendly, responsible people. :heart:

Also a small reminder that this month's theme is just about at an end! The theme is sunlight, or yellow! At the end of the month your submission may be picked to be featured in a journal for everyone to see! :star:
