The Illuminated World ContestStock & ResourcesThe Illuminated World Contest by CelticStrm-Stock
Imagine a world where the soft glow of the magnolia blossoms illuminates the sidewalk. The reaching branches of the tree cast their light over the street, reflected in the gathering puddles of a spring rain. A garden nearby is a riot of colors against the deep shadows of the night. The harsh artificial street lights that we know today are gone. What would your world look like? Is it a world where the need for fossil fuel has been eliminated, or have the scientists bio-engineered the earth into a beautiful apocalypse?
The idea of bio-luminescent plant illumination is a real project in progress by three scientists in San Francisco, California. These scientists are engineering marine bio-luminous bacterial DNA into plants to make them glow. You can read more about their project here: Glowing Plants: Street Lig

Credit where credit is due...I've wanted to share an issue that is near and very dear to my heart; crediting an artist or photographer when you share their work. I'm seeing more and more a casual disregard for the artist and her work. As an artist and photographer my work is my life, it's who I am and how I make a living. Sharing my work to the world makes me so happy but if you share and don't link or credit you're stealing, plain and simple.Credit where credit is due... by NaomiVanDoren
I think Christopher Burdett touches on this subject perfectly. Please take a moment to read and share.

Resources PE Week 15th - 21st SeptWhy 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!
