How to Upload a CoolClimate Art Submission on deviantART

Step 1. Join the Group:
In order to do so, you will need to be signed into your deviantART account. If you don't yet have a deviantART account, it's simple and just takes a seconds:

Step 2. Click on the "Contribute Art" button. And enter a title for your work of art. If it doesn't have a name, use "Untitled."

Step 3. Select a Category to describe what kind of art you are submitting. Choose only from the following 3 options  for your main category -- Digital Art, Photography, or Traditional Art.  We only accept submissions from those three categories:

Step 4. Make sure that the "CoolClimate" checkbox is selected, and under the "Submit to..." drop-down chose whether your submission originates from the United States or is International:

Step 5. Select the work you would like to submit. The image must be at least 400 pixels wide and 400 pixels high, and we accept file sizes up to 10 MB. In the text field please take a moment to describe the inspiration behind your piece, and below that add any descriptive keywords that apply.

Step 6. You're almost done. Just make sure "Contains Mature Content" is set to 'No' (We are not able to accept pieces that contain extreme violence or nudity).  And leave the default "Choose License" (This ensures people will not use or modify your work during the contest). Read the policy statement and click 'Submit.'

You're done! You may submit up to 3 works of art.  Note: Please do not submit your work for the print shop yet until the contest is complete.
Good luck and thank you for your submissions to the 2010 CoolClimate Art Contest!

Yes! Why hasn't anyone responded to these concerns about joining the group and being unable to load images into the Cool Climate contest? Help!

This is ridiculous . . . it is impossible to get a picture in this contest at the moment. There is no #cool climate box to check . . .

Just like a lot of people here . . . my three entries are not being received as there was no little box for "cool climate" contest, only "submit to featured" which I did but my pics are not up in the contest. Very frustrating!

Hi ~valilancea,

Now that you've uploaded your work and become a member of the group, go to this link: [link]

Then, click 'Submit to this Folder' in the top right corner, then choose 'Contribute an Existing Deviation'. Choose your work and hit 'Submit' at the bottom. Voila! Your entry will be in our Gallery.

Let me know if you have any other troubles submitting. :)

I joined the group and got the submission page but there is no "submit to group" checkbox, and the drop down list does not have US or International options, only "submit to featured" I don't want to upload to anything but this contest - how can I do that when I can not find what they show in the "how to" page. It just isn't there. How did anyone else manage to upload?

I'm newbie, but i managed to join the Cool Climate group. I even seemed to be able to submit my images to Cool climate. Here's my problem: each has a message that says my submission is waiting for approval from Cool Climate. It's been that way for 5 hours.

Is this normal? How long does the approval process take? Or, did i do something wrong?

I cannot figure out how to upload my work to coolclimate and I'm so frustrated. I joined the group and became a member. There is no option for coolclimate in the gallery folder on my submit art page.
Please help!

I'm having the same trouble. You're not alone. I made an account, but it won't let me join the Cool Climate group which I think one must do to submit to that contest. Any advice?

I submitted artwork to my gallery first,then I submitted it to "international submissions",it said that deviation will be reviewed. Is it right?

I believe one has to be a contributor to submit artwork to a group.
hazlenutx2's avatar
nevermind me, I spotted how :B

So how do I contribute a piece of art already in my gallery? Just edit it?
hazlenutx2's avatar
on the home page of this group, click the contribute art button.

Ah, okay. Thanks!
hazlenutx2's avatar
Thank you too, if it weren't for your question, I wouldn't have figured it out.
