For the longest time, if you asked anyone who they think embodies the true spirit of dA community, one name always came to mind! MiloticScale, known to his friends as Jonathan, has been a dedicated member and an influential voice in our community for the past 5 years. Jonathan brings new deviants to light via fella's Welcome Wagon and also runs the monthly ArtFest contest at fella. He's always available when a deviant has a question and is a positive driving force in the community.
Jonathan has always shown the utmost motivation and enthusiasm and when he was not working on his beautiful Fractal Art, you could always find him frequenting the chats or contributing to his many groups which include fella
, to name a few. Unfortunately, every start has an end, and a few months ago, our dear Jonathan stepped down from taking part in community matters to focus more on other tasks. Jonathon still engages in the seniority community and is always there to help a fellow deviant in need. His tremendous contributions and tireless dedication will never be forgotten. He truly is an angel, and those who know him can understand why we love him so much!

Katy is well known in the DA community as a volunteer for the Digital art and Community Projects categories. She is always friendly, courteous and helpful and truly cares about the opinion of the community at large. She puts out frequent polls and journals on various topics related to DA and allows users to voice their opinions on the subject. The most admirable thing about Katy is her tireless dedication to helping lesser appreciated artists get exposure for their work. She prefers to give Daily Deviations to those with less page-views and favorites and through her work at :devproject-porkchop:, she has given recognition to hundreds of talented artists who we may not have noticed otherwise! Katy is one deviant who absolutely deserves this award!

I think it'd be nearly impossible to find anyone that's involved in the Literature Community that doesn't know LiliWrites. She’s been around for a long time, and is known for both her outstanding artwork and her supportive, selfless, caring demeanor. Lili is among those people who have both skill and patience to write a critique for an artwork, and uses this ability as well to help out aspiring artists. She also leaves helpful comments on artworks for this purpose. Not only she expresses her thoughts, Lili also creates tutorials about giving critiques, leaving constructive comments, or becoming an inevitable member of Deviantart community. She has a kind word for everyone who passes by her page, and is a voluntary helper of several groups on Deviantart. The way she gets people interact through contests and artwork, reflects on her true devotion to this community.
Letter to a Friend Far AwayWhat do you write to a soul mate you've never actually met? Whose hair texture you can imagine, scent you can almost detect? Whose laugh rings still - garbled by continents, oceans, timezones, and the fallible nature of technology - to echo contentedly in your memory as pen crosses page? Dear friend, this letter is late and I apologize. But please understand.
The words are too many and oh so few. How do I explain the clustered silence that your chatter (beloved as it is and will be) ought to fill? How do I narrate the beauty of the skyline where Highway 101 meets Interstate 5 if you are not here to watch my hands tell the story for me? The more intimate details of human interaction depend on physical presence, don't they? Or do they?
I question this because were I blind, or deaf, I think you and I might still find our way to friendship. Dear friend, this is how I see a soul mate - not as the mythical bond between man and woman that so limits our ability to define love - but as the ines
Japan quakes, bereft
of her children; I build cranes
tens upon thousands.

Grimsey is one of the sweetest, coolest deviants I've met so far! He is a big pillar in the Literature part of the community, but he's also a beloved friend to people from all corners of dA! He involves everybody in all sorts of sweet, fun ways, through features, challenges, recommendations, fun polls, and so much more! Anyone who has had the privilege to get to know him can attest to the fact that he's the friend we can go to, when we need ANYTHING! He will be there, with his honest opinion and a ton of ideas!!! But he doesn't stop there, he also does such a lot for his friends. He treats us all with the utmost kindness, to the point that he even sends paper notes via regular mail to those who are in need of more of his sweet contact! I love you dear Grimsey!!! So much!!!
