Everything you need to know is right here! It is very important for you to read the rules and the descriptions of the folders so you know how submitting goes about!
If you'd like to suggest a new folder idea just give us a message!
Be PATIENT with us. We all have lives outside of deviantart, but we try our best. This is very fast growing group and it's hard to keep control sometimes.
You are automatically admitted to the group when you join, so no need to thank us!
1 photo per day (Contributors and Co-Founders can submit 10. They still have to be accepted though!)
Choose the correct folder for your photo or it will be denied and you'll have to submit it to the right folder that you are told. (I understand if sometimes you just didn't know which one to put it in)
DO NOT resubmit a denied photo unless told otherwise to do so!
Your photo should be good (I never said great) quality. i.e not blurred, pixely, grainy, not too small, etc (Unless obviously intentional)
I know people will be mad for this one, but no mature content please.
No photo manipulation! Unless it is double exposure or layering (Cosplay is usually okay with it, like if you want to add some kind of bending on an A:TLA picture, etc. or putting what the cosplay is from on the photo) This includes putting a quote, unnatural bokeh, multiple pictures put together, borders (unless they're very small, have the name of the picture on them, or is done to look like wide screen), or anything like these!
If you have multiples of one picture, choose ONE to submit or I will pick one of them and deny all the rest.
Be nice! Don't hate on people's work please! This is a friendly place for all photography!
Just be creative
Have a question about where you should put a photo? Look here first!
Abstract and Surreal - Things that don't look like some kind of objects, artistically blurred or distorted (done while taking the photo usually) photos of lights or other things, and anything else you think belongs in that odd little category.
Animals - Self explanatory except no insects! Those belong in the Insect category!
Architecture - The main focus is a part of a building or the whole building its self. Statuses of all kinds go here as well.
Conceptual - Anything that has a big meaning behind. Maybe not big, but some kind of meaning as to why you named it what you did, why you took it, etc.
Cosplay - People dressed up in any kind of costumes.
Double Exposure and Layering - THIS IS NOT A LONG EXPOSURE FOLDER. Double exposure is usually done with film. There are ways to do it with layering to have the same effect though. That is allowed. Pictures of people looking as if they are 'floating' are also allowed. As long as it is not heavily photo shopped/edit (look in the rules for what is not allowed) you can put layering pictures here. Please ask if you are not sure about a photo!
Insects - Sell explanatory. All types of bugs go here, even if taken in macro.
Macros and Close Ups - Self explanatory, photos taken in Macro mode. Any kind of Macro can go in here except of insects.
Nature - No animals or bugs. Anything else of nature is allowed. Sometimes certain landscapes should go into Rural.
Portraits - Picture of people done in photo shoots, for fun, etc. Usually you know the person that you have taken a photo of, or at least spoken to them.
Photojournalism - Events and gatherings go here. People at these events will always go in here. People out in public doing their daily life activities go here as well.
Rural - Pictures of rural and country life go here, along with photos of rural landscapes.
Still Life - Sell explanatory. Objects that don't move unless it is a Macro, then it should be in Macro.
Transportation - Cars, boats, trains, etc. Anything that gets you from one place to another, even if it doesn't work.
Urban - Pictures of cities and towns and urban life.
Other - Photos that do not fit in any of the other categories.
At you can get points for giving people llamas, favs, and watches. If you need points its a good place to go!
