Winners of the Non-Existent contest announced
The Non-Existent contest, DeviantART's first official ANSI/ASCII contest kicked off on the 16th of October. It was originally going to end on the 25th of November, but it was extended for two weeks. Originally we had separate categories for ASCII and ANSI as I was really expecting some ANSI artists from the artscene to join the challenge, but no such luck.

The founders and the site weathered the storms that hit, and because of the initial and continued dedication of Scott and Angelo, along with the rest of the core developers and volunteer staff, deviantART continues to function, evolving continually to meet the demands of artists, exponential increases in deviations (and consequently necessary space) and operating costs, along with dozens
