Submission Status



Before submitting - please check the guidelines!

Why was my piece declined?

Fri Apr 18, 2014, 12:06 PM by Art-of-man:iconart-of-man:


Hey everyone,

Just a note to say that an increasing number of pieces are being submitted to the wrong folders. I will no longer be sending a comment if a piece is submitted to the wrong folder - it will just be declined. All you need to do is re-submit it to the correct folder.

My intention is not to be rude, it's simply that it is really time consuming to move pieces or write comments to people. Today, out of nearly 100 pieces, 25 were submitted wrongly. :(

To help everyone decide where a piece should go, I've done a quick set of questions that you should use before submitting or to help you understand why a piece was declined.

Is there any colour other than black and white or grey in it?
YES - problem solved - this IS the Black & White Club!
NO - next question

Have I used more than one medium?
YES - submit to the Mixed Media folder
NO - next question

Does my image move?
YES - submit to the Animated folder
NO - next question

Does it show or tell other artists how to create something?
YES - submit to the Tutorials folder
NO - next question

Did I create it on a computer/iPad/smartphone etc?
YES - submit to the Digital folder
NO - next question

Is it scraperboard or lino-cut?
YES - submit to the correct Line Art folder
NO - next question

If I only had a pen and some black ink or a scraperboard could I still create my piece?
YES - submit to the correct Line Art folder
NO - next question

Did I use pencil, charcoal, graphite or paints?
YES - submit to Traditional folder
NO - next question

Is it an original photographic image?
YES - submit to Photography folder
NO - ask the Founder what to do ;)

Hope this helps everyone! If you're still not sure, just have a look at the galleries to see what kind of pieces go where! :D

Have a great Easter,

Dave
:D

Thank you very much for requesting my Pencil Portrait of a girl from Togo and putting it into your Featured folder.  It is much appreciated.
