Featured FolderGood morning everybody! I hope you're having a good day!
There's one issue that I have been dealing with in this group that I wanted to bring to your attention: The featured folder submissions.
The name of this group is Awe-inspiring-photos. This means that each and every photo must inspire the viewer in some way, and the photos in the featured folder must be the best of the best. Please don't submit photos of your lawn or other mundane things to this folder. Thank you.
Have a nice day!

Contest Winner AnnouncedHello again!
Without further ado, let’s skip to the chase~ Here are the winners for the “Travel” contest, and a little blurb about why each one was picked:
This beautiful piece by Ben-Kelevra is absolutely stunning! It shows the ladybug making it’s way down a blade of grass, marking travel in even the littlest creatures.
This lovely piece by paniparanoja is amazing as well. Having caught the bird in flight or “travel”, and captured everything down to the smallest detail, it truly is a sign of an amazing photographer.
This view of Venice by williamdaros is unique in it’s own way. Not only does it show the way we humans travel, but the t

Contest and Super Group :DLast week, contest "Travel" was created, and people have entered some entries. They're all very beautiful and fit the theme really well. Remember, the theme is pretty general, so get creative To view the contest rules and prizes, look at this journal: http://fav.me/d597fps Everything you need to know about the contest is in there, as well as where to submit and who to ask questions if you have any. Reminder: Contest ends August 31st, right before september starts and brings school with it
In other news, I checked out the super group price a couple of days ago, and even with the discount, I really can't afford it by myself. So I've sent up a donation account here: Awe-Inspiring-Points You can donate there, and get featured depending on how much you've donated. It's only fair to feature someone for a longer time if they've donated more to the group. Thank you
If you have any questions, comments, thoughts, or suggestions, write them down here!

Mary Cassatt was born in Allegheny City (now part of Pittsburgh), Pennslyvania, USA on May 23, 1844. Her family was upper-middle-class, giving Mary the ability to travel Europe and later attend art school. Her schooling at the Pennslyvania Academy of Fine Arts lead her to believe one of the best ways she could learn was to copy the old masters.
The Mandolin Player c. 1872
