What are these UF challenges?
How do challenges work and how can I participate?
Can I help promoting the challenges in some way?
What if I have an idea for a future challenge?

You can find all this information and more in the Ultra Fractal challenges FAQ, which is also part of our very first UF challenge, the one for February 2011.
If you already know the rules, then you're good to go - read on for this month's challenge!

Previous editions:

You can find all of the previous challenges in this journal. Please keep in mind that the challenge rules changed after the 26th edition!

Links to ALL UF challenges (updated periodically!)Since the UF challenges are growing in number, instead of linking them all in each new one, I thought I'd make a collection journal for all of them. This will contain all challenges held so far, from the newest (top) to the oldest (bottom), all conveniently thumbed for you! It will also be updated each month so that ALL challenges are reachable from here, even the newer ones. And this journal will of course be linked in every challenge, to keep them all connected :aww:
Here we go!

Now we can go on with the last challenge's results, and then I will introduce this month's challenge to you all.

Here is the September 2012 challenge, themed "Tribute to Light", and the deviations our dear Light (SuicideBySafetyPin) has picked as the winners!

First place goes to Gerda1946 with Redux September - Light 5:

Light's words: "The color is amazing!"

Second place goes to ChaosFissure with At the End of the Tunnel:

Light's words: "This one makes me feel like I am in a tunnel!"

Third place goes to adrymeijer with Growing with Light:

Light's words: "I really love spirals and this one is no exception."

Our former Community Volunteer deserves all the love she can get, so have a look at just how many other amazing fractalists did their job to let her know how great she is!

We're done for September. On to October!

Ultra Fractal monthly challenges Redux

Challenge #21: October 2012

October's challenge will be a Theme challenge - its title being Bienvenu, Damien!

As expected, for this one month, we'll be giving a warm welcome to our new Community Volunteer, Damien, aka SaTaNiA! :hug:
Aside from being a great member of the fractal community, he also organizes Paris deviantMEETS on a regular basis. So, the fractals entering this one challenge should be French-themed, in honour of his homeland and his effort in promoting devious fun in it!
In addition to that, he will also help me out with selecting the winning works. This is why the challenge deadline will be moved to the 25th, instead of the end of the month, again. Please get your entries in on time :nod:
Here's some fractal eye candy directly from Damien's gallery:

And here's another collection of works inspired by France:

Remember: to enter the challenge, post your deviation's link and thumb in a comment of this journal. ALSO: PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU LINK THIS NEWS ARTICLE IN THE DEVIATION. (Sorry for stating it so strongly, but I've had lots of people saying they'd enter the challenge without even stating it in their deviation comments, so I figured I'd better add this specification somewhere!)

Please spread the word by advertising this news article - we definitely want more participants. The more, the merrier!

This challenge's deadline is October 25th, 2012. Ready, set, GO!!! :eager:
Twenty-first edition of the monthly UF challenges, featuring the winners of the "Tribute to Light" round, plus another tribute challenge for everyone! Want to know more? Read on!

Sorry, the deadline was two days ago! I will still feature your work among the participants, but it will not be eligible for the top three. :(

Don't bother, just trying to be supportive of your contests because I enjoy them, I noticed only three or four people entered this month and went finished the piece i had started on earlier in the month(which i wasn't going to do due to the fact i was late). To be 'punished' for being a few days late due to some ridiculous drama in my life (crackheads, cps, protective orders, homeless defecaters, ect...) well to be honest it kinda pisses me off, I don't really care about winning its just the principle this is supposed to be fun...

You accidentally inserted the link to challenge 20, and not challenge 21, in your deviation description. You may want to change that. :D
After you do so, you're in :nod:
