Frequently Asked Questions & Submission Guidelines 6/23/16

Q1). How many deviations am I allowed to submit?

A1). Submissions are limited to 1 per week per folder. They are auto-accepted.

Q2). What kinds of pictures are accepted/rejected?

A2). You must be the author of the work you submit. If your work combines different resources, you must be the author of each of them (no use of stock, licensed or non-proprietary images is allowed). If you are a model, though, you're allowed to submit photos which portray you, as long as you're given permission by the author. Submitting somebody else's work without permission will cause a permanent ban.

Photos with poor technical quality, with no other aspects to compensate for it, will be removed. Grain, blur, cut arms and legs, tilts and other imperfections can sometimes enhance a photo, but there should always be a point in using a certain effect.

Photos with too big of a watermark will be removed (this includes the deviantART watermark).

Common themes — such as sunsets, butterflies, roses, lonely trees, pets, tourist attractions, etc. — need to be artistic (i.e. not snapshots or cell phone photos) or they are subject to removal.

Photos of sculptures, paintings, posters or other artwork will be removed unless given a deeper meaning, since the photographer is not the original artist.

Self-portraits will be removed, unless they are unusually creative.

Product shots, logos and other shots with a typical commercial style will be removed because they are not considered artistic here.

Photographs with mature content must have the mature filter or they will not be accepted.

Pornographic material or very repulsive photos are strictly prohibited, submitting such photos will result in a permanent ban.

No cosplay.

No photo manipulations. If you use multiple stock images to create a composite image, it is then a photo manipulation. If you have any questions about this, feel free to message the group.

Q3). How can I be of help, other than submitting my work?

A3). We're constantly looking for great pictures and talented artists to show off. So, feel free to invite new members and suggest us any work or person you believe is worth being featured.

Your commenting on the blog entries is greatly appreciated. You're also welcome to report us any information or news that might be of interest for the members of the group.

Q4). What is the role of a contributor?

A4). The role of a contributor is very similar to the founder which include inviting members, reviewing/curating the galleries, making journals/features, participating in discussions/journals/tutorials, submitting deviations, suggesting deviations, moving submissions around in folders, etc.

Q5). My submission was removed?

A5). Not all accepted deviations will remain in the group galleries. If you have any questions about why your deviation was removed, please respectfully message the group and the admins will provide reasoning. Complaining on the front page of the group is unacceptable and will be marked as spam.

Q6). I have a question not covered by this FAQ. How can I get support?

A6). Send a message to the group and your question will be answered at our earliest convenience.

Q7). What are the behavior expectations of the group?

A7). We encourage constructive criticism and questions as long as they are posed in a respectful manner. We employ a zero-tolerance approach to negative, attacking personalities. If you can't behave as a respectful individual, this is not the group for you. If you behave rudely, you will not be warned; you will be removed from the group.
