Submission Guidelines

:star:To submit art::star:

:bulletblue: Once you are a member, you should see a button at the top of the page that says "Contribute Art" (Non-group members will not see this. You must be a member to submit art.)

Press it, and it will bring up a pop-up that will show your gallery. Highlight which piece you'd like to submit. It's that easy. :)

***Please limit your submission to 1 per week per deviant.

#dAPagan Staff kindly ask you to consider the following before submitting your creations:

-they must abide by the rules and policy of deviantART(copyright, appropriate category, behavior&interaction, mature content&nudity etc)

- dAPagan Staff reserve the right to select the submissions according to the quality, pagan content, and creative effort that they involve. We welcome every type of art, media and all levels of artistic accomplishment- but we would like to maintain the standards of our submissions. Please, mind your presentation of materials. Take a nice photo of your crafts or paintings so that others may enjoy it better--it shows pride in your work. Poor presentation may result in denial of your submission, so take heed and read the guidelines below.

:police: IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS YOU MUST MAKE BEFORE SUBMITTING :police:
- dAPagan Asks that you submit only deviations that contain obvious pagan religious content. Simple Fantasy or Dark works with no perceived Pagan Content will not be added to the Club Gallery. We are seeking works that bear RELIGIOUS SIGNIFICANCE to your Pagan Path.

We realize that the line between fantasy, mythology, and many of the trappings of paganism exist in a world of gray area. Let us provide an example of what we consider as the difference between acceptable submissions and unacceptable submissions. This is in NO WAY a dig at anyone's path, or what is deemed "acceptable paganism". That is not for us to decide; we just have to judge your submissions.

Example:
:bulletblue: A photomanipulation of a Fairy without any obvious religious significance (either in the image itself or in your description) will be dismissed as a work of fantasy. If the Fairy bears an obvious religious significance, the piece will be accepted.
:bulletblue: King Arthur and his Knights or Ladies found within the depths of those awesome tales are considered works of fantasy for a number of reasons. The tales are largely Christian-themed, despite undercurrents of older pagan traditions. If one were to submit a work of the Avalonian variety, you should do your homework and weave in the Pagan context of your submission. Perhaps you would like to create a piece that blatantly illustrates Morgan LeFay in a complicated piece regarding how she evolved from powerful and skilled sorceress to villainess in direct conjunction to religious attitudes of the time period; IE the suppression of the powerful women as illustrated through her....well that includes quite a bit more thought than submitting an image of a sorceress in a pretty dress with the name Morgan LeFay tacked on. Do you see our point?

We may not be able to inform each individual of why their image was denied due to the number of submissions we get. We don't want to hurt anyone's feelings--if your image is denied from the gallery try resubmitting it as a featured FAVORITE, and it will likely be accepted. We are reserving the gallery for religious pieces, and the favorites for more secular ones.

- #dAPagan Admins will review your submission, and if the criteria for submission are met, your deviation will be accepted. :) HOORAY!

Deviants

Hello everyone, this is my first group blog, so bear with me on this.

First of all I would like to bring your attention to submissions. Please, PLEASE when considering a piece for submission to the group read the Submission Guidelines which are on the front page of the group. Here is the excerpt I'd like to highlight:

"- dAPagan Asks that you submit only deviations that contain obvious pagan religious content. Simple Fantasy or Dark works with no perceived Pagan Content will not be added to the Club Gallery. We are seeking works that bear RELIGIOUS SIGNIFICANCE to your Pagan Path.

We realize that the line between fantasy, mythology, and many of the trappings of paganism exist in a world of gray area. Let us provide an example of what we consider as the difference between acceptable submissions and unacceptable submissions. This is in NO WAY a dig at anyone's path, or what is deemed "acceptable paganism". That is not for us to decide; we just have to judge your submissions."

Now, if a piece does not have any noticeable visual 'Pagan' elements that we as staff can see, BUT the piece has spiritual significance to YOU personally, please add that to the description of the piece. If neither of these things are found, your piece will be declined I'm afraid.

Secondly! Sadly only myself and Raini-Tempest are active mods at the moment and with things like work and life getting in the way the group has been quiet. The thing is, most submissions to everything but 'Featured' have to have THREE votes to be accepted. So, if you would be willing to perhaps join the team and help us that would be great!

If you're interested please Note the group and include these points:

:bulletblue: How long you have been following your current 'Pagan' path and why.

:bulletblue: How long you have been a member of deviantART and if you are already a Mod of any other groups.

:bulletblue: How active you are on dA every day.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and blessings to everyone.

Jezz - aka Orestiad

Thanks for the add!

I make little creations inspired by Nature and her Spirit (in particular Woods, Forests and Mountains), from Forest Animals and other Creatures and from Pagan and ancestral traditions.
 I'm glad to join this group!

I've found something I'd like to share www.youtube.com/watch?v=BO-GTQ…
It's very strange from the normal combining witchcraft music and video
