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.Note: The Fan Art, Comics, Manga and Anime is all 4 categories in one folder.
For example, the category of your deviation is Fan Art > ... (the dots indicate the next subcategory, whatever it may be). Your submission would belong in our Fan Art, Comics, Manga and Anime folder.
If the category is Cartoons and Comics >... then that also goes in the same folder as the above.
If the category is Digital Art > Paintings & Airbrushing > ... then that belongs in the Digital Paintings and Drawings folder.
Now in regards to the Miscellaneous folder, that was intended to house all other categories that we do not have folders for.
Of course, Digital Art > Miscellaneous > ... fits there - remember digital art only!Photomanipulations
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 copyrightedIf 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.
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.
