Great contest my friend!
Anyone can win?
"must be static" What does that mean?
That means the image should not move.
So what do we do? I don't really understand, I'm sorry but can you sum it up for me?
You create a character for the group (mascot)
But what is the group?
You can find what we are here:
We believe that all deviants are entitled to receive help in their own language wherever possible. We exist to help non-English-speaking deviants understand deviantART's +faq by translating it into multiple languages. We cannot contact the +help desk on your behalf.
Please note that our translations are not official translations and can potentially become out of date or inaccurate if the FAQ is ever updated. We advise you to check on the corresponding FAQ, by clicking here, for more details.

Just to point out, the contests folder does not seem to have a sub-folder for the mascots.
That's because you have to submit to the main folder and not a sub-folder.
I'll join :] for sure !
I'll donate a prize!
What kind of prize?
Quick question, if I may Are you looking to keep the duck as a mascot or can other animals be offered as mascots? Thanks in advance!
The duck is just for inspiration. You can create whatever you want as a mascot and it doesn't even have to be an animal.
