This journal will, hopefully, clear up the number one issue we have with submissions to the incorrect folder.

I will try to keep this short, sharp and to the point.

Let us cover our rule for submission: The deviation's category has to match the folder for it to be a correct submission.

What does this mean?
This means that you submit your piece of art to the folder that matches what you have classed that piece of work as when you submitted it to your gallery.

Digital Paintings and Drawings 12:
The categories:-
:bulletblue: Digital Art > Paintings & Airbrushing > ...
:bulletblack: Digital Art > Drawings > ...
:bulletblue: Anthro > Digital Media > ...

3-Dimensional Art 2.0:
The categories:-
:bulletblack: Digital Art > 3-Dimentional Art > ...

Photomanipulation 3.0:
The categories:-
:bulletblack: Digital Art > Photomanipulation > ...

The categories:-
:bulletblue: Digital Art > Pixel Art > ...

This one is a little more complicated since stock is involved.

We want to see direct links and proper credit to ALL stock used. So if your photomanip is declined it is either because you:
1. Didn't provide direct links
2. Have missing links/credits
3. Have no stock crediting/links at all
4. Used images that are copyrighted

If the stock/images are yours please state so in your description otherwise you could risk getting your work declined.

Please remember that if you are still not sure about the correct folder, to send us a message instead of posting to a folder and hoping for the best. If the folder is wrong, it will be declined and you would have lost your 1 submission a month slot.
We will not accept it and move it to the correct folder later; there are simply too many submissions to go through.

:bulletred: I cannot stress enough how important it is to read a group's rules before you submit. Group's have different rules so please, read the rules before submitting. It'll mean you're far more likely to place the work in the correct folder.

So to conclude just remember: use the category to help you submit to the correct folder.

For any questions, feel free to ask. I and other mods will try and answer them as best as we can.


Please note that we do NOT accept WIP (work in progress) pieces. Please only submit Completed Artworks.

hi, I just wanted to have a moan about the submission process. I can't remember the last time I had a piece accepted and I really try to pick the right category. My work is of high enough standard (the odd DD even) but I just can't get past the submission process.

If you followed the guidelines above you shouldn't have had any problems. Unless it's a photomanip?

I am looking to sponsor a contest.  Not sure who in this group I should contact.

What about journal skins? Is "Miscellaneous Digital Art" appropriate for them too?

Hmmm, Might get people to submit those to Designs & Typography

I understand why you guys have problems with the folders.. luckily i always check where i submit my art to so it's never been a problem for me, but indeed people should take more time to submit their work to the right folder or just don't submit it at all.

Have submissions been disabled for now? Are they going to be re-enabled at some point?

Just wondering; are you more likely to get declined if you draw a character but the there is no background to the image?
