Art World Today is a group for anyone who enjoys art. You don't have to make it to be a member.  Art comes in all forms and what is art to one person might not be art to another. So you must be kind to other members.  We will have beginners as well as established artists in this group, so there is a variety to look at.    

:+devwatch:For those who want to be a member without watching here is a step by step guide on how to remove from watching…

:bulletpink::bulletblue::bulletorange:Gallery Submission Guidelines are subject to change:bulletyellow::bulletpink::bulletpurple:

:heart: FEATURED FOLDER: Admins only.This folder is for our First Friday Feature. The Admins will pick Members to feature. That is the only way to have your work featured in this folder. The members are picked the First Friday of every month.

:star: FAVORITE Folder:… This is where you will find our contests, Features and where you can share your favorite pieces of art done by anyone on dA.

:reading: We have made a folder for Mature Content. "Normally we are happy to accept images of nudes provided they adhere to general dA guidelines on taste and decency. Such images will be placed, usually, in our Mature Gallery."

:love: In order to keep things clean in the galleries Admins will move images to folders they feel are best fitting.

:iconcocoloveplz: Please go to this… to see what parent folders we have, and how to submit your work to one of them.  Our staff will move the images to the sub folders all you have to do it put it in the correct parent folder.

:bulletgreen: You must be a member of the group to submit to our gallery.

:bulletblue: Up to 3 deviations per folder a day are allowed.

:bulletpink: We accept all types of ART please place in the correct folder. If there isn't a folder that fits your art please note us…

:bulletred: If you do not know why a submission of yours was declined it could be because:

:bulletblack: It was submitted into the wrong folder.
:bulletblack: It was not made by you, you did not post credit for who made the Art.
:bulletblack: It was offensive, this group is for all ages (we do have a mature content folder, which is for artistic content)
:bulletblack: You are submitting numerous photo's of something that is to similar to a lot you have already submitted.
:bulletblack: You have double submitted the same deviation.
:bulletblack: Did not follow dA rules.

Remember we do Not Accept:
:bulletred: Works that violate dA’s rules.
:bulletred: Art theft will get you banned from the group.
:bulletred:The Group Reserves the Right to Decline Any Work. Only Submit Your best Artwork, Not your Entire Gallery.

:) Please do not feel offended if your submission is declined, please comment on your declined submission with the question and we will respond to why.

:star::star::star::star: Suggest a Fave Submission Guidelines :star::star::star::star:

This is also where you will find our contest, features and events folders.  Please suggest your fave to the featured folder
:bulletgreen:Suggest a Fave
:bulletblue:Submit It Here…
:bulletpink:View It Here…

Art World Today is looking for your Favorite Pieces of Art! Please go to the top of the group page and click the star that says Suggest a Fave. Then share with us some of your favorite piece of art you have found, these would go in the featured section.

I thought this would be a great place for those of us who like to look at art but might not make it, as well as those who make it.

Thank you and please share your group and I will feature it on our members group features I do. Right now I have put them on hold until I get back from vacation but I try to feature 10 groups a week from our members and affiliates.

we can affiliate too if you like, my group is :icondeverythingart:
im finding it difficult to keep up with owning a group (never really intended it...) but between that and giving out spiritual advice i guess i found my vocation in life XD
i am trying to get together enough prize points for another contest.. it will be traditional only, with prizes being commissions from myself and hopefully (if i can raise it) around 100 points for winner - but im struggling to get much notice on the funding side.
enjoy your vacation, hope it is restful and you find your inner peace while away from it all.

I requested Affiliation with your group. What I found was the best thing is to offer a blog and do a feature for all those who donate. I also added all the icons of anyone who donated so I could keep track. Then I would do a feature it seemed to help get the donations. Something I have started doing now is I made an account just for the group donations that way it didn't get combined with my other groups or my personal points. [link] There I set it up that the favorite folder will randomly show different images. When someone donated I add an image from their gallery to that folder and it will randomly feature them on that page. I then post their ICON on the main page of the Donation page. I think this is the easiest way and I wish I had thought of it when I first started Art World Today
