We've hit $20,000 (20k)!

  • Since the start of 2024, Art Fight has made over $20,000! This includes both on-site contributions, plus the gross amount made from merchandise sales.
  • Thank you ALL so much for the overwhelming support. As always, if you're interested in supporting us, you can head over to this page to see each tier!



Art Fight 2024

Information about changes made to the site, planned updates, and more!
 


Art Fight Theme Reveal Stream

  • We are currently beginning to prepare for the Art Fight Theme Reveal! The date will be announced in the next newspost. 
  • If you're unfamiliar, the theme reveal is an animation made every year by the talented Axel that announces the theme for the event! We plan on streaming it both on our Twitch and Youtube!
  • Like last year, it will run for 12 hours. We plan on hosting many fun activities throughout the stream! You can also expect a surprise sometime during the stream...

Upcoming Rule Changes 

  • We are working on making several changes to our Rules. Several new additions will be made, as well as general improvements in readability and making some rules more clear, like our stance on no AI Art. 
  • Our Filter Guidelines will also be updated at the same time. 
  • Due to mod strain & limited resources, no changes will be made to our rating system this year. 

April Changelog
You can read more about what changed by heading over to our Changelog!


  • We focused mainly on improvements and additions to our moderation tools. Some new systems were introduced in order to better support moderators. We plan on implementing a few quality of life changes before the fight, but we will mainly be focusing on additional improvements to the moderation tools.
  • Have an idea for Art Fight? Let us know here! We'll periodically check up on this form and add submitted suggestions to our Trello board.


Community

Our moderator application is open, but not for very long! Includes information about our first ever Sprout Fight! 

Mod Apps Open

  • Our moderation apps are still open, but will close soon! You have until April 30th to submit an application. Applications will then close until Art Fight 2024 is finished. If you're interested in moderating for Art Fight, check out this page!
  • You can expect a first batch of new mods to arrive soon - thank you for your patience as we worked on an improved mentorship system, which we believe will better help and support new moderators. 

Sprout Fight Info 

  • Thank you to everyone who participated in Sprout Fight and shared their artwork with us! We had a whopping 392 submissions in total (wow!). If you submitted a prompt piece to the form, you should now have an achievement for it.
  • Likewise, Art Fight & Arctic Fight 2021 submissions should have an achievement. Please contact a site moderator with your prompt artwork if you know you had entered but did not receive your achievement!
