Our Rules

The rules listed here are brief. For the full list of rules, please click here.

:bulletyellow: :bulletgreen: Submission Rules :bulletgreen: :bulletyellow:

:rose: You must be a member of SkyAndNatureClub to be able to submit.

:rose: Every member may submit only 1 artwork every 2 weeks.
(2 entries per month, but only 1 during each half of the month)

:rose: If you don't want to get the submissions in your message center, simply unwatch deviations from SkyAndNatureClub.

:rose: The submissions won't be directly submitted to our gallery folder. One vote is required from the administrators.

:rose: All deviations must be nature-related, with minimum non-nature elements in them.
(eg: sunsets, flowers, animals, birds, landscapes, etc..)

:rose: All visual media are acceptable as long as they're realistic. However, dA related deviations (stamps, avatars, etc.) are not acceptable. Also, fantasy, abstract and highly manipulated photos will not be accepted.

:rose: We have minimal quality standards. That is, we judge photos based on the photography basics and rules. For example: exposure, focus, lighting, composition, noise, colors, contrast, white balance, etc.

:rose: We do not accept deviations with non-nature elements if they are clearly noticeable, or if the major focus was on them.

:rose: We do not accept photographs taken from cars or windows where they're noticeable. The same thing goes for drawings or paintings, in which the wall at the back can be seen when they're photographed.

The result of our last poll has been collected, and can be seen below. Congratulations to the winners and all of the participants! :la: The winners will be contacted about their prizes as soon possible. :aww:

Thank you for accepting my request to join the group.

I do have but one question however. Do our submissions have to be photographed during the submission period? (ie: contest for the weeks of, May 1 - 15 - photograph taken during that specific time frame?) Or can it be any time frame for the photography?
