Good day everyone! I still have some more gifts that need to be done for this year’s Secret Santa. In fact I have EIGHT Santas that have still not received gifts, and no one left to send pinch hits to. I really do need some assistance with this, so if you have the time, please volunteer to pinch hit. You will be given two weeks from the day you receive the assignment to complete it.
GO HERE TO SIGN UP TO PINCH HIT!
(Please ignore the dates in that post, but read everything else before signing up. Thanks!)
I still need several more! *repimp*
Hello everyone! Thank you so much for your patience.
Our 2014 digital calendar is here!
All files are zips that include an image for each month of the year, clearly labeled, so just pick your resolutions and download. I want to thank our twenty-four AMAZING artists and also abarero who did calendar graphics on all of them but October, February, and January (those artists did their own). Please do drop a comment and let the artists know how much they are loved, and let me know immediately if any of the download links are not working!

Hello! Welcome to the USUK fic/art exchange!
Sign-ups begin Friday, October 11, 2013, and will close Thursday, November 7. Applications will be matched as best as possible based on request and prompt compatibility, and will be sent out as soon as possible, no later than November 12. All fic and art will be due by Tuesday, January 7, 2014.
If you think you won’t be able to finish in time, you can request an extension. Your request must be sent in (by ask or by email) by Monday, December 30. The extended deadline is then Tuesday, January 14, 2014.
All of the entries, once posted, will be tagged “usuk exchange” if you want to track it! If you have any further questions not answered by this post, please get in touch! Either send an ask here or an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here it is! Please read all the information carefully, sign up, and SPREAD THE WORD. Invite your friends to participate if they’re not already members!
What ‘Secret Santa Exchange’ Means: You create a fanwork, and you’ll receive one in return. Everyone who wishes to participate will provide a few prompts that they’d like to see completed, and another community member will be assigned their prompts and will complete one of those (which one is completed is up to the person they’re assigned to). When you submit your prompts, you are welcome (and encouraged) to tell me anything you are uncomfortable with or don’t wish to do (pairings, genre, rating, etc), that way the prompts you’re given are something you’re comfortable writing/drawing.
Come one, come all, spread the USxUK love with the fifth annual USxUK Secret Santa exchange.
Hey everyone. This is a super important poll regarding our upcoming USxUK calendar. We need to know what kind of screen resolutions are most common among members of this community for computers, phones, and tablets. While we plan on offering the calendar in multiple resolutions, it’s probably not possible for us to offer it in every single one, so it’s extremely important that we have a general idea of what you all have. PLEASE VOTE if you are at all interested in the calendar.
Hello USUK fans, and welcome to the official tumblr page for the USUK Drabble Calendar!
Applications to be in the calendar are open and run until October 15th! You can find the form to apply here.
The calendar will officially begin on January 1st, 2014, so we hope you’ll join us!
It’s time for the 2014 USxUK calendar audition post! This is the fourth year we’re doing calendars, but this year, for the first time ever, the calendar is going to be a (free to download!) digital release. You can read more about the reasons for that HERE.
There will actually be two separate calendars released- one made up of twelve full sized wallpapers (different screen resolutions will be released), as well as a ‘pocket-sized one with smaller images for phones and tablets. If you want a physical calendar, you are of course welcome to print out either of them! We’re also toying with releasing a pdf similar to our previous physical calendars so if you want the standard 8 1/2x11 release, you can download it and print it out.
The schedule for this year’s calendar project is as follows:
- 9/14-9/28- Auditions Open
- 9/29-10/5- Voting is open
- 10/6- Artist assignments are sent out.
- 10/6-12/10- A bit more than two months time allotted for artists to complete their pieces.
- Mid to late December- Calendar is released for download!
HERE is the audition post. Please read it carefully! If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO HAVE AN LJ TO AUDITION.
Hope to see a ton of great artists!
Hey everyone. We actually need a TON more auditions to really get this going, so if you were shy about entering before, please consider doing so. Thanks!!
