Welcome to Birds of the World!
As the name of the group implies, this is a group dedicated to birds. Here you can submit your photography and artwork of birds. There is no quality control here, so all bird photography and artwork is welcome as long as the work doesn't go against any of the rules listed below. Please read the rules before joining.
Members are not allowed to submit their work to the Featured folder. Only the founder can decide on what can be featured.
The submission limit is three deviations per day.
Submit photography to all photography folders. All artwork must be submitted to the Bird Artwork folder.
Some folders contain descriptions that will aid you in the submission process. Before submitting to a folder for the first time, please check in the description to ensure that your submission meets the criteria to be featured in said folder.
Photos containing sick, abused, or dead birds are not allowed. The only exception to this rule are photos of birds eating other birds, which might be the subject of some raptor photos.
Sorry we do not take literature. Art and photos only.
Political artwork is not allowed
Stolen work is not allowed.
Nudity and pornography is not allowed.
Be civil to other members of the group. If you are caught behaving inappropriately to other group members, you will be blocked from the group.
Birds must be the focus of your photography or art. If there is a person and a tiny bird that can not be seen in thumbnail it will be rejected. This group is about birds not people or other animals. The bird must be large and the focus of the art.
There is MILD quality control on this group. Other than what was mentioned above for photos artwork submitted must be of intermediate to professional quality. Cartoon birds are allowed so long as they are based on real birds and obvious what species they are. No fictional birds. No birds that are overly deformend. Basically we mostly take realistic cartoons. This group is called Birds of the World for a reason. But mostly we want art of real birds. No fan art. Drawings of characters like Daffy or Donald duck are not allowed. They are not real birds and you must submit only your own characters. Original characters based on real birds.
You must be active if you want to become an admin. Inactive admins will be removed.
If you have any questions regarding the group, please send a note.
