I am Megsy and it appears I have inherited this group. I am not the 'true' founder, I just seem to have the label since the original group creator has left.
The group, like most groups these days has grown haphazard to say the least. I am going to have a go at cleaning things up a bit. This might take a while as there is currently no Admin other than myself.
Currently, the group is undergoing an epic clean out with some significant changes. Old and new members alike, I ask that you read the below information to help things run smoothly
NON AUSTRALIAN ARTISTS WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE GROUP.
FEATURED: The Featured Gallery is by invitation only. This is to highlight our best work and show the world the benchmark of awesomeness that we have! Submissions directly to this folder will be declined. Inclusion to the Featured Gallery is at moderator discretion.
"2015 GALLERIES": Are our recent works/submissions. Please submit your work to the folder of that works 'medium'. With the exception of photography, gallery folders are now not sorted by 'subject'. This is to simplify the submission process. If your works are submitted to the incorrect folder, they will be declined.
Photography is the highest volume medium, and therefore has been separated into three categories - "Nudes": Images containing any degree of nudity, "Portraits": Any depiction of the human form from any category (eg. Horror, glamour, fashion etc) and "Other": This also covers a large scope of categories including but not limited to landscapes, flora, fauna, food etc.
TO BE CONSIDERED FOR THE FEATURED GALLERY YOU MUST SUBMIT TO THE CORRECT 2015 FOLDER!
"CLOSED" Galleries: Are being sorted in the same order as the 2015 Galleries. These folders contain works dating back to 5 years ago.
SUBMISSIONS: Are reviewed and subject to moderator vote. Images submitted to either the incorrect folder or the Featured folder will be automatically declined. Prior to approval to the group, all images will be briefly assessed for quality and artistic merit. Traditional artists please note - that image quality will effect the decision as to whether your work is accepted. Out of focus, poorly lit images of your work will be declined - even if the actual work is great.
To prevent spammers and multiple images from the one set - submissions are now limited to one image per day. Works in storage, or poor quality and multiple images of the same subject will all be removed.
I expect to have this sorted over the next couple of days. If you have problems with settings/submissions; please do let me know as I cannot fix what I do not know about.
