The number one rule in this group is to treat others with respect. No flaming, trolling or other nasty behavior will be tolerated here. I am well aware that there are certain groups of Heathens who believe in racial superiority, and while I recognize your right to believe what you want, don't bring that here, I have a zero tolerance for racism. The same thing goes for 'Wiccan-bashing', and other forms of hatred, this is not the place for it.
We accept all types of artwork related to Norse, or other Germanic mythology. Quality works are preferred. I realize that 'quality art' is subjective, so artwork will be judged by technical quality and subject matter, rather than style. As for subject matter, submissions should have something to do with the legends, mythology or folklore surrounding various forms of Heathenry, or our way of life. This does not mean drawings of vikings, unless the vikings are depicted in a suitable situation or setting (you can submit these to our faves though). Depictions of famous historical vikings will be accepted, as they are ancestors, which are important to many Heathens. Any deviations that are not obviously dealing with heathen themes should have some kind of description to explain it, I have had to decline several things for this reason; and accepted several which had nice descriptions that I otherwise would not have accepted. We do not accept any works that are racist, ultra violent, or pornographic. Some violence in submitted artwork is acceptable, as the mythology abounds with it, but depictions of violence just for the sake of showing violence and gore will be declined. Likewise some nudity is fine too, as long as its tasteful. There's a special case to be made for certain symbols used in artwork, namely the 'black sun' and the symbols most people know as swastikas. These symbols are perfectly acceptable in artwork submitted to the group, as the symbols themselves do not imply racism, but are ancient symbols that have been improperly used by hate groups.
Please submit to the appropriate folder. We will decide which works to feature.
Photography- Should be relatively decent quality, no blurry or overly grainy shots will be accepted. Acceptable subject matter for photography includes photos taken at a Blot, Sumble or festival, photos of appropriate sculptures, and handicrafts, or others, including interpretive photos of mythological themes. Artisan Crafts have their own folders.
Artisan Crafts- There are several folders for crafts, each set aside for the medium used. There is also a folder named 'Artisan Crafts' for mixed materials, items that do not easily fit into one category, or mediums that do not yet have their own folders. If in doubt, submit to this folder.
Poetry/Prose- Anything related to the Heathen way of life or beliefs is acceptable. Until I have a few contributors/co-founders who speak other languages, all submitted works must be in either English or German, or accompanied by a translation.
Blogs- We will accept suitable blogs about subjects which may be of interest to the community. This means anything from in-depth information on various aspects of seid or rune magic, festivals, rites, mythological analysis, etc.; to personal experiences that may have bearing on the lives of other group members. If we feel it could be of interest to the community we will accept it. All blogs must be written in English.
---People are capable of making mistakes, sometimes you're in a hurry and submit to the wrong gallery, or whatever. I'm not going to be an ogre with the rules here, unless things get out of hand or you are a repeat offender. Just remember the admins can make mistakes too so have some patience and understanding, and we will try to do the same.
Members of our affiliates may submit one deviation per day.
Members may submit 5 items per day.
If in doubt, feel free to submit something, the worst that can happen is that it gets declined, I may even decide to create new folders (or sub-folders) for themes or subjects that I hadn't considered , and if your work is declined and you would like to know why, just ask.
