We would like to thank all our members for submitting to us recently. But we would also like to remind everyone that we do not accept "pretty doll" photos, no matter how good quality or nice they may be.

We are looking for photos that have something that is different. Something surprising. Something interesting. Something in the way of mood.

We are not the kind of group you can post all your pretty photos to. Unless they meet our guidelines, they will be declined.

Please read the rules and guidelines below before submitting to us. Thank you!
This group's aim and purpose is to gather the most inspiring BJD photos into one gallery. What we are looking for are photos that show an idea, good composition, proper lighting and imply mood -and above all: inspire us.

We only accept one photo from the same setting, so choose your best one. We do not accept "pretty doll" photos, no matter how good quality or nice they may be. We do have a portrait folder, but it should also follow the guidelines and be just a little more interesting than a regular portrait.

Each photo will be individually looked at and will need both of our approval.

Please check out our submission guidelines below for the more specific criteria

We pay attention to details. Just one little thing that is off (such as focus on a doll's chest instead of the face) can cause us to deny a photo. However,  our guidelines are not ironclad and may be broken as a means of conveying something to the viewer. The most important thing is for the photo to have impact and inspire others.

If we did not accept your photo, it does not mean that it wasn't a nice photo, it just means it didn't pass our criteria. If you have questions as to why something was or was not accepted, please feel free to either ask in the submission form or note us.

Even good doll photos will get denied if there's nothing happening in them. As in: the doll is just standing/sitting there and nothing around them indicates why.

Submission guidelines

Any type of authentic resin BJD (+Dollfie Dreams) and any theme photo is accepted but here are some general guidelines.

You are allowed to submit 3 photos/week into each folder.

The doll(s) should have:
-A good face up
-A brushed wig
-Nicely positioned eyes
-Proper clothes
-Natural posing (or otherwise fitting for the photo)

The photos itself should:
-Be interesting
-Convey mood
-Have proper lighting
-Be in focus
-Have good composition
-Have a proper, in scale setting
-Be nicely edited
-Mature content should be in good taste and have appropriate warnings

Things we generally frown upon:
-Flash photos
-Messy backgrounds/wrinkly backdrops
-Heavy photoshopping
-Multiple photos next to eachother (this can really kill the impact)
-Upward angle (unless purposedly done)
-Sideglances looking in the wrong direction
-Stiff posing
-Flyaways all over the doll's face
-Tilted horizon/camera
-Awkwardly cropped photos

Please, submit to the correct folder or your submission will be denied. If you are unsure, please contact us. The folders are as follows:

General: All kinds of varied photos; full body shots, close ups, situations, conceptual photos.. Basically, everything that isn't a portrait.
Portraits: Waist up photos of dolls posing for/looking at the camera. The key to this is that the dolls should be posing as if they know someone is taking a photo, and not be in the middle of doing something else.
Dollfie Dreams: Any and all dollfie dream photos

Please see this example gallery for examples of what kind of photos would be accepted (portrait examples are in their own folders). The final say will be ours, though.
