24 Days, 24 Doors, 24 Opportunities to get featured!
Christmas season is almost here and some countries count down the days until Christmas with a so-called advent calendar. Traditionally, an advent calendar contains a small piece of chocolate for each day until Christmas, but in the past years, a variety of advent calendars has emerged, featuring all sorts of products like different lipsticks, socks, toys or even dog treats - you name it. While we'd love to spoil all our readers with chocolate, we must unfortunately admit that that would be a logistical nightmare before Christmas (pun intended...). Instead we thought, we'd stick to what we're best at - provide a platform for aspiring artists to showcase their work and get the recognition they deserve! So from December 1st, we'll open a virtual advent calendar door each day containing an article featuring different artists' work, their advice on how to start or improve in a specific field of work and lots of other fun content! Want to be one of them? Read the instructions below to learn how to take part in our Advent Calendar Special!
