This blog exists to provide regular ICDC updates to send out to watchers of Save-The-Cheetah.  Wait, you don't know what the ICDC is!?



The International Cheetah Day Challenge is here!!!  Please read these important reminders of what you need to do!

:bulletgreen: Submit your cheetah art on December 4th!  Not before, not after.  December 4th!!!
:bulletyellow: Make sure your cheetah is recognizable as a cheetah!  The most recognizable feature of cheetahs is the black tear lines on their faces.  Other important features are their lean body and small black spots.  Also, make sure your submission respects cheetahs.
:bulletgreen: When you submit your deviation, you must submit it to this category:… which will only be open on December 4th.
:bulletyellow: Make sure you put "cheetah" in the keywords of your deviation before you submit!
:bulletgreen: In your deviation description, say that you are participating in the International Cheetah Day Challenge.
:bulletyellow: Link to the final ICDC journal in your deviation description:…
:bulletgreen: Link to the Cheetah Conservation Fund in your deviation description.

The above are the only things you are required to do.  But there are some bonuses to the ICDC that you can also do!

:bulletblue: Submit your deviation to Save-The-Cheetah to be featured in a special ICDC gallery!
:bulletorange: Submit your deviation to The-Big-Cats-Club to enter a contest with points and more as prizes!
:bulletblue: Send your deviation to Ymia-the-cheetah in a note to be included in a cheetah collab!
:bulletorange: If your cheetah is anthro, submit it to AlternativeAnthro to enter a contest with points prizes!
:bulletblue: After the challenge we will have a special feature of art that was especially inspiring toward raising awareness!

Keep telling your friends about the challenge and submit as much cheetah art as you can!  We have come together as a community of artists and on December 4th we are going to make a difference in raising awareness for cheetah conservation!  I am honored to be part of this community!

Hey, can I ask you something? There's problems with submiting to :iconthe-big-cats-club: into the folder favourites -> International Cheetah Day Contest 04 12 2012 and it's not only me. Help? sorry for bothering ^^
bcbdrums Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012
they may have closed submissions after 24 hours in the group owner's time zone. :( send the group a note and ask?
anteatr Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012
How do you submit to the special category? Is it still too early? It's 1:09AM Dec 4th on the East Coast. I'm guessing DA is based on the West Coast? I suppose I'll wait until later...
bcbdrums Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012
dA is west coast which means the official dA category is not yet open. many people are submitting deviations already via other categories. you can do this if you wish, or you can wait another hour and 30 minutes until the official category is open.

i've opened the folder here, and #The-Big-Cats-Club has opened their contest folder. :)

OK, I submitted it to the group! Hope everything is ok with it!

Wouldn't it be better to put the midnight journal on December 3rd, so then people can put the journal link while they are submitting the art work instead of waiting 24 hours? I can't wait to see all the cool cheetah art!
bcbdrums Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2012
midnight is the start of December 4th. 24 hour days go from 12:00am to 11:59pm. it's the same time dA is opening the submission category.

oh, did you see what i did in your gallery folders? :D
Harmony-Bender Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2012  Student General Artist
OH now I get it, I thought you meant the midnight that would go on to December 5th if that makes sense. I will go check the gallery folders, oh and thanks again for helping me with the group, you were just the person for the job.
bcbdrums Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2012
so what do you think?? i'm going to do a few more things too, but i only have so much free time...

you're welcome! :) organizing things is fun for me.

I love it. I like how you put the different species and how endangered they are in the galleries, it is just plain amazing what you have done.
