Where do I start? (November Theme)
Start by thinking about this month's theme. Holidays. They're just around the corner and everyone's got them. Think about what makes the holiday textures different and try to come up with 5 surfaces that spark interest and fascination. Then grab your modo and start cranking them out. Once you're done, upload, tag and submit them. You have till the end of November for the Holiday theme. We will announce the subsequent themes in their respective months.

Disclaimers and notes:
-Please try to be original in your entries. Get inspired by anything, but make sure you are using your own user-created material, images and presets. The point of this contest is to actually learn not just win stuff.
-Make sure your presets are created at a real world scale and you created them with that application in mind. They will be tested on real world projects. If they don't work, the vote will be low.
-Make sure to cast your vote on other users' creations just as they would vote for yours. You can't vote for your own.
-Don't forget to tag your entries upon submission to the share site.
-Prizes are not transferable. If you don't want yours, they will be given to the next person inline. Which is totally cool.
-If the Final votes have a tie, we will settle this in a death match preset show down. 10 minutes creation time, new tie breaker theme, 1 preset. Best preset via vote wins.
-No inflammatory remarks or images accepted. We're here to celebrate holidays, families and friends. Lets keep it nice.
-Make sure to create a thread in the community thread for this contest in order to show off your progress, inspiration and process. We're sure others will appreciate it and get inspired by it. It also helps you to figure issues out.
