Change is terrifying, inspiring, and has the promise of freedom and potentially a way to move forward at the risk of losing a great deal. Apocalyptic change is all of this to the umpteenth power with greater terror and greater risk that there will be no survivors remaining. We desire change, yet fear it, here are the dreams of apocalypse tempting us on, while frightening us with the costs that could be too much to afford.
This group is about the End of the World, in whatever form that it could take. Whether aliens invading from space, zombies running rampant, things that man was not meant to know coming through supernatural gates, nuclear wars, super plagues, mega-quakes, super-volcanoes erupting, or the Sun going nova. Contributions can be science-fiction, fantasy, modern day, of any time or any place. It only has to fit within the overall theme of a major cataclysmic event or devastating change in the world.
Just a few things to keep in mind:
Submissions from Members are voted on.
If a submission is rejected don't expect an answer as to why, though possibly the reason is clear enough. The most likely reason for a submission being rejected is that it didn't fit the overall theme of overwhelming terrifying apocalypses and their aftermath. If you really think it should've been accepted, just try again - sometimes it just wasn't noticed the first time around or was misunderstood.
The Feature Gallery is sort of an “everything has it's moment” gallery. Regardless of what Gallery it's put in, most artworks are going to be in Featured for a little while for same fame. Also, I try to copy across the submissions to other appropriate galleries to allow specific types of submissions to be looked for. Please submit to the correct Gallery, but understand it will be also be copied across to other Galleries that the artwork fits with too.
Politeness is expected among Members, but everyone should try to have a thicker skin and a bit of humour. We can't always know for certain if the offence given is due to a misunderstanding or a difference of culture.
