Stock & Resources Policy Clarification:
Stock and Resources: Policy ClarificationThe Stock and Resources community is an integral part of deviantART, both for having an active community of its own as well as providing high quality stock to all deviants. 
As this community has grown so much over the years, so has the amount of invalid stock and resources that have been provided by some deviants. The Stock and Resources community feels like this reflects negatively on them, the volunteers have a hard time trying to teach people about valid stock and how to use it correctly, and it gives an appearance that deviantART Staff tolerate so-called “art theft” or copyright infringement.
In this article our aim is to reinforce our policies regarding stock and stock use and clear up some misconceptions.

Why Project Educate?

projecteducate is one of our main contact points for all the artists of DeviantArt to come together and educate themselves about a multitude of art related subjects, from techniques and hints and tips to DA specific information and help.  By providing a central location the volunteer team can reach out further into their communities to guide and help more artists than ever before.

But we can't do it alone!

Help and support from as many community members as possible is essential to ensure success, and this is obviously where YOU come in!

Stock and Resources is hosting another Project Educate week this year between the 15th and 21st September, and its really not that far away, and we are looking for your help :)

As a guide here are journals from our 2012 Project Educate week -

We want 2014s Project Educate Stock and Resources Week to be just as jam packed!

So.. we want to know what is important to you.  What issues or subjects would you like us to cover?

Artist interviews by Stock and Resource Artists

Your chance to choose 1 or more artists who use your stock and resources and ask them what they look for, what made them choose your stock specifically and what makes stock and resources "useable" for them.

Stock and Resources Guides by Stock and Resource Artists

We've all been there, venturing for the first time into creating stock and resources and it can be really daunting.  This is your chance to help, support and guide new stock providers about those all important "must dos" to make their work successful and useable.

The more of you who get involved, the greater the impact we have in the larger DeviantArt world, lets show them just what we are made of, and just how brilliant the Stock and Resources Community is!!

If you would like to submit articles or stock and resource features during our week to highlight whats great about our gallery please send a note to either myself, Erin or Cheryl and we will add you to the list!
