We won!


UPDATE: Thanks to the efforts of our amazing community, deviantART won the People's Choice category at the 2014 SXSW Interactive Awards!  We'd like to sincerely thank everyone for participating. The creative energy and inspiration that run through the deviantART community is absolutely awe-inspiring for those of us fortunate enough to be helping out behind the scenes. We truly believe that we are the greatest community in the world, and we work towards sharing that feeling with our deviants each and every day. Thank you for sharing this win with us!


Thanks to the generous efforts of deviants like you, deviantART has been honored as one of the top-five finalists in the People’s Choice category of the 2014 SXSW Interactive Awards!



We couldn't be more humbled to be amongst the other highly acclaimed finalists, but we still need your help!  This year, voting for the People’s Choice category is open to everyone, all over the world.  However, the process is a bit tricky, as it requires voters to cast their final votes live, using a smartphone or tablet app.


(Voting has closed!)


  1. To participate, you’ll need a Apple or Android phone or tablet.
  2. Visit the Apple App Store or Google Play.
  3. Search for and install the “Visual Voting” app.  (It’s free!)
  4. Open the Visual Voting app and choose your method of sign-in (Facebook, Twitter, or anonymous).
  5. Click the "SXSW Interactive People's Choice" pink banner.
  6. Are you attending? Select “No” or “Yes.”
  7. Click on "Cast Your Vote" pink banner.
  8. Select "deviantART" as your People's Choice!




Thank you for your support!


We wouldn't have been considered for this honor if it weren't for the support and passion of deviants like you. By getting the word out, deviantART hopes for the chance to bring you even more cutting-edge technology in the creative realm, reaching more artists than ever before. So, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for all the support you've given us over the years, and stay devious!


Spread the word!


Because the voting window is so tight, we're relying on word-of-mouth to help spread the message. If you're so inclined, please share your deviantART support across your favorite social media platforms, tell your friends, download the app onto your dog's smartphone and vote on his behalf, and help us rock the vote!
