Support the Art of Bonsai Project
AoB has compiled the webs largest collection of world-class bonsai galleries, interviews with renowned individuals in the art, and articles dealing with the artistic aspects of bonsai and related subjects. We have also created contests that have, without a doubt, been the most successful ever on-line, as well as setting the standards for all Internet bonsai contests. Our members consist of serious artists from all over the world and we have seen as many as a million hits in a single month!
Since its inception, the Art of Bonsai Project has always been a non-commercial site, free of the advertisements, pop-ups, and other such distracting ads all too common on other forums. It has always been our belief that our content should be 100% educational, inspirational, and professional without polluting the environment with "pay per click" ads or other material designed to earn a profit at the expense of quality content.
This left us with many challenges such as, covering basic hosting expenses that all forums and websites have, and having available funds to promote the forum, our contests, as well as having the ability to offer cash prizes, scholarships, subscriptions, and other prizes to our members and to the entrants in our contests.
AoB has survived and flourished since its creation depending exclusively on a donation system in which patrons of the art have generously donated the funds needed to maintain the forum. Our contest prize lists have been the best and largest ever offered on-line thanks solely to our sponsorswho have graciously donated prizes, cash, and gift certificates. Our success can also be attributed to magazine sponsors such as Bonsai Today, Bonsai Europe, Bonsai Focus, International Bonsai, American Bonsai Society Journal, and BCI Magazine, who have sponsored our contests, offered promotions, and published the winners and articles concerning the contests in their magazines.
We have developed several ways that you can help support the Art of Bonsai Project., each important to the continued growth of the forum and each designed with our future goals in mind.
As you can see, there are many ways to show your support for the Art of Bonsai Project, please take the time to show your support today.
