Hey everybody.  I wanted to make a quick info post about submitting art, and art that gets accepted or rejected.

Most of the art that you all submit gets accepted.  The only criteria (at least for me, I can't speak for the other reviewers) that matters is (A) whether it is submitted to the right folder, and (B) whether the art is in some way "Celtic."  It doesn't even necessarily have to be good (though I like it when it is!).

Celtic art and culture is a big category of things, and encompasses a lot of styles, symbols, etc.  Having done a lot of Celtic art and research on Celtic history, I'm pretty good at recognizing what is and isn't Celtic, and as a reviewer, the most common reason I reject a submission is because it's actually not Celtic - usually, it's Norse/Scandinavian, which *is a different thing.*

HOWEVER.  It's not up to me to make the final decision about what "Celtic" means, and I recognize that Celtic art takes influences from a broad variety of styles.  Basically the way I review things, if someone submits something that doesn't look Celtic, doesn't say it's Celtic-inspired somewhere in the title or description, and especially if that piece is obviously from a different cultural-artistic tradition, I reject it.  But if it's kind of Celticish, and especially if the person refers to it as Celtic in the title or description, I let it through.  I know a lot about Celtic art, but I can't claim authority over the definition of the term, so if the submitting artist thinks it qualifies (and doesn't seem to be just submitting it randomly to whatever group he/she can find), I'm in no position to contradict that.

Moral of the story: If you submit art to this group, it should be Celtic in some way.  If that way isn't obvious, you should make sure to note in the title or description that it is Celtic-influenced, and if possible, explain how.  That way you can make sure that it will get accepted - at least if I'm the one reviewing it.

Cheers!  Keep making cool art!

-Nick

Thanks for the add!

I make little creations inspired by Nature and her Spirit (in particular Woods, Forests and Mountains), from Forest Animals and other Creatures and from Pagan and ancestral traditions.
 I'm glad to join this group!

Wondering if anyone can help out here... Just noticed that one of my submissions disappeared from the gallery. Would it be deleted for any reason? It's been up for a couple of days and suddenly gone. I was going submit another tonight but on second thoughts I may not.

Hi, I just want to ask something.
I have made a fantasy species who worship a pantheon
of gods called "The Fey", or "The good neighbors".

They are based on older stories of fairies and celtic mythology.
Most of the fey are made up characters, but a few of them are based on or have similar names to real celtic gods and godesses.
Is this idea Ok?

Hello!  Yes, that is suitable for submission.  Just for clarity's sake, you should specify the Celtic connection in the descriptions.

Hi!  Go again and submit if you want to.  If it fits within the Celtic umbrella of the group, it's eligible for submission!
