Name:
Honorary Meta-Art Exchange
Membership:
Open
Posting Access:
Anybody , Moderated
Introduction:
This community is devoted to honoring those who have gone above and beyond in contributing to the various furry art exchanges that many furry artists participate in and enjoy.

Many of us participate in more than one of these communities, linking them together as a whole into a meta-community. And while we participate, we often see a member of this meta-community putting forth exceptional effort for the community. We wish to honor these artists here for their hard work and generous contributions to the art communities we enjoy.

Purpose:
While the intent of this community is to offer fan art (in any form) to honored artists, it is also a place to bring attention to active community members to give them encouragement, offer kudos, and start thinking about the next round’s chosen.

No anonymous posting will be permitted. This community exists only to thank, not to criticize or bash. There should be no shame in praising and thanking fellow artists.

Structure:
Monthly contribution rounds
These rounds will be held every month and will last roughly 2 weeks.
Each month a Monthly Honorary Nomination thread will be posted.
Each member may nominate one artist. Please be very clear who you are nominating.
Each nomination must present a clear reason what the nominee has done for the meta-community in the previous month that illustrates the selfless extra work they have offered. This contribution does not have to be art!
The reason must show that the nominee has given to the community as a whole, not just to a single person (“S/he made a nice pic for me” is not a valid reason).
After 4 days of nominations, a poll will be posted and voting will last 2 days.

Longterm contribution rounds
These rounds will be held bimonthly and will last roughly 2 weeks.
Every two months a Longterm Honorary Nomination thread will be posted.
Each member may nominate one artist. Please be very clear who you are nominating.
Each nomination must present a clear reason what the nominee has done for the meta-community in the long term that illustrates the selfless extra work they have offered. This contribution does not have to be art!
The reason must show that the nominee has given to the community as a whole, not just to a single person (“S/he made a nice pic for me” is not a valid reason).
After 4 days of nominations, a poll will be posted and voting will last 2 days.

Once an honorary artist is chosen, they will be notified in the community where they have been nominated from, and via e-mail if possible. While we await their response with a character they would like drawn, a post to this community will include links to that artist’s artwork and recently posted character descriptions, for those who would like to get a head start.

There will be no set dates for nominations or polls. There will be no set deadlines for art. You are welcome to continue posting fan art even if we have moved on to a new honorary.
Art posted will be archived and placed on a webpage eventually unless dragondazd is notified not to include it.

Our sister communities are:
furartxchange
furartxchange2
dragon_exchange
gryphon_xchange

Note: To get your community added to this list, contact dragondazd@livejournal.com. The community must be active (at least 3 rounds of exchanges in 4 months).
