Welcome to the International Cheetah Day Challenge! What is this challenge, you ask? Well...
The International Cheetah Day Challenge (ICDC) is the day when you, supporters of saving the endangered cheetah, use art to raise awareness about this dying species and maybe even raise money for the cause! The idea behind the challenge is that deviantART's front page will be totally filled with cheetah-themed art for at least one day, and through this people will look into what's going on.
To get involved, all you must do is submit cheetah-themed artwork to deviantART on December 4th which is International Cheetah Day. See further details below.
Other ways to help are by promoting this challenge to others on the site in any way you can! There are perks to getting involved! Also see further details below.
Please see the ICDC Update Blog for regular news about the challenge! Very important updates posted now!!! Read them!!!
Together we can make a difference!
