Group guidelines and Rules for submitting

Due to the increasing number of spammers and bots on DA - Join requests for members will be voted on not auto accepted. I will check your gallery and if you don't have fractals - don't worry about requesting membership - just watch the group instead.

All fractal art will be accepted as long as it fits the rules below, including from programs such as Terragen and Bryce - place them in the 'other' folder until I see if we need new folders :)

We will be doing regular journal features of your work to promote and hopefully will be able to run some contests as well

If you would like to see any new folders opened please send us a note

⦁ Submissions must follow DA policies seen here -…
⦁ Please submit your best work - to the correct folders!
⦁ 3 submissions each day to each folder
⦁ Submit to folder of the program you used - animations and manipulations as well.
⦁ Submissions are NOT auto accepted - we will decide.
⦁ Multiple submissions that are very similar will not be accepted
⦁ Featured folder is not allowed, we will choose work to go there
⦁ No pornographic/nude work or work requiring the mature content filter
⦁ No overtly violent/gruesome work will be accepted
⦁ Journal art features must be promoting other artists, not yourself
⦁ All work/resources submitted must be your own
⦁ Correct acknowledgement must be given for stock used - 'found on google/bing etc' is not good enough
⦁ Anyone found to be submitting stolen art will be removed and reported to DA
⦁ No watermarks or signatures that obscure the image - these will be declined
⦁ No unfinished work/works in progress. We want to see the final art work.
⦁ No blurred images that require people to watch you or pay to see them - we can't check if your image is appropriate for this group.
⦁ Treat everyone involved in the group with respect - those who don't will be removed from the group
⦁ We will always give a reason for declining


We will only affiliate with groups that follow similar guidelines to the above


Please submit a journal with the news - there is a folder for that.


This is something I would like to build up and keep up to date so please send me a note if you know of more to add or if a link doesn't work.
