Online galleries are the best place to find undiscovered talent. Two of the best galleries for finding this talent are Deviantart and Etsy.com. Etsy is like an online craft fair, with it's members selling a range of hand made items from sculptures to paintings. There is always something to buy that is within your budget and taste. Deviantart is more of a social networking site for artists. Prints can be purchased of some of the work and others you can download at high resolution and print yourself. It's one of the most visited sites on the net and if you haven't visited already, it's well worth taking a look. The site is a gold mine of ideas and inspiration.

Help them complete the survey and you will be entered into a prize draw and get inside information on the census.
